What Others Have Said...


I thoroughly enjoyed your marketing class! Your enthusiasm and practical, relevant ideas were inspiring and thought-provoking. Our advertising agency and paid referrals are extremely expensive and frankly, not maximizing our exposure and tools. I am reenergized and now looking at marketing very differently. Thank you,  Joseph!

I have gone to a lot of seminars and presentations over the last 20 years, but your marketing workshop is by far the very best seminar I’ve ever gone to - excellent!
