In this episode, he shares how he went from just trying to prove he wasn’t an “idiot” to massive success by educating himself and strategically applying what he’d learned with immense focus. For Joe, success is about far more than money; it’s about building a life.
“I know how to make money, but how do I make a life–how do I live a life I’m proud of?”
“Formal education will make you a living…but self education will make you a fortune.”
