ReLaunch - NEVER GIVE UP on Your Possibilities

He spent 30 years in the sport's trenches - covering everything from minor league tryouts to world championship games. Using his own creativity and flair,during that time, he had developed an incredible knack  for distilling some of the most memorable moments in sports, into short, bite-sized, TV-time nuggets. To his credit, his on-screen presence and ability to communicate and connect, has earned him an incredible 15 Emmy awards.

Daunted by the "overwhelm" of trying to write a book or put together a meaty presentation,  Joe, our guest, was challenged in his writing. He was fluid in his ability to tell it quickly, however, expanding, elaborating, packing in more punch, that would take a new set of skills. As Joe explains on the show - "Chop wood one day at a time."
