Joseph James is the Founder of Creator of Purpose Through Pain. He is a former U.S. Marine and Law Enforcement veteran, business owner of Professional K9 Solutions dog training, father, motivational speaker, life coach and Podcaster. Joseph has spoken in many venues across the nation and has helped 1,000’s of people understand their purpose in life. After his wife’s battle of cancer, and the journey of pain his family went through, Joseph is now coaching people that have gone through life’s struggles, pain and trauma to help them not just find their purpose through pain but teach them to take their pain and launch them into their destiny.

In this episode, Joseph gets into why you don't want to drain yourself in the process, and that you have to make sure that those people around you are hungry. He also talks about why you want to seek out the people that can help you when it comes to actually running a business, and adds that if you think about a business, stop procrastinating on what you think you want to happen, and just go do it to take action.
