The ability to give objective advice to his clients allows Joe to sit on the same side of the table as his clients. It is this experience, working with many individuals over the years from many backgrounds, which inspired Joe to write Decades & Decisions. In addition to the book Joe continues to write for several media outlets.
Joe enjoys spending time and making memories with his wife, Jane, and two sons, Blake and Grayson. When he can find the time he enjoys woodworking, cars and holding court over a hot grill.
