Joe’s featured book is entitled: Every Day Excellence (A Daily Guide to Growing)


Life is a journey.  Every day can be viewed as a semi-independent event or contest, and using insight from others ranging from Marcus Aurelius to Nadia Comaneci to Dori from Finding Nemo, we can get a better handle on the world around us and some guidance on that journey.  Quote, discussion, then action item for the day translates the map from potential to doing daily and growth whether in business, relationships, personal or physical development.
