  1. Joe,
    Another outstanding podcast. I had flashbacks to the late 1980’s-early 90’s. I had T-Michael shirts and Zubaz pants also!!!
    Jeff’s comments on happiness were spot on. I love these podcasts where reals guys talk about real life stuff. Thanks for letting us into your circle. Every time I listen to your show or logon to the “Insider” it re affirms my belief that YOUR success is not measured in reps and weights. It is measured in the amount of people you help and service to others. YOUR success is a ancillary result of hard work and passing on great energy. Thank you my friend. WHAT YOU DO MATTERS!!!
