Today, if he and his family wanted to start it from scratch, they couldn't do it with all the rules and regulations necessary to comply with multiple federal, state and local agencies.
At a young age, Joe learned about the importance of public service. He volunteered to serve in President Reagan as an intern and finished ahead of 3000 other applicants for the coveted position. Since then, Joe has balanced his professional life as an entrepreneur with his public service.
In Episode 65, you'll learn why it is crucial to understand how politics really works and how to get involved in a practical way in your community.
