Some of his cousins were in the gangs but Joe always choose sports and somehow he got a pass from the gangs.

Listen to his story, to hear how he grew through created a mindset based on three principles

1. Don’t Give Up

2. Never Give Up

3. If you decide to give up, rethink that and Don’t Give Up

It all boils down to Never Give Up. You can never stop living you life when you are alive.

Joe shares all of this within the first 10 minutes. Is you experience fear, you will want to listen to this podcast. Joe has been in Law Enforcement and has been a bodyguard for such well known celebrities as Montel Williams, Lionel Richie, Teena Marie and Jennifer Hudson (to name a few).

In my book, The Mosaic, one of the characters Mo meets is The Bodyguard. Take time now to listen to the story of a boy who grew up in Watts and the Unlikely Destiny his life takes.
