In this episode…

Where does inspiration come from? How do we overcome adversity? Finding the drive to push through and get things done can come from some surprising places. Sometimes it is even found in the struggles of loved ones. Joey’s wife has a twin brother who went through an incredibly difficult health issue with impossible odds. Despite being young and healthy, Joey’s brother-in-law was given very little chance to survive.

The weight of the situation affected Joey tremendously, causing him to question his beliefs and even overeat. Despite those impossible odds, his brother-in-law is now cancer-free. As Joey was so close to the situation, he saw how his brother-in-law dealt with the situation and took inspiration from it. Those difficulties led Joey to ask himself important questions about himself and his faith, and those questions brought Joey out of a dark place and into a positive light and an appreciation of the life that he has.

Rise25’s mission is to connect you with your best referral partners and customers.

We connect you with strategic partnerships through our done for you podcast solution which is the best thing I have done for my business.

  1. Our Done for you Podcast service – We help your company completely run and launch your own podcast and make sure you get ROI from it.

We distribute your show across more than 11 different channels (spotify, google play, itunes, and many more) including a dedicated blog post and social media. You simply show up and talk and we do everything else. Our team has been working with podcasters since 2009. I personally credit podcasting as the single best thing I have done for my business and my life. It has allowed me to connect with the founders/ceo’s of P90xAtariEinstein BagelsMattelRx Bars, and many more. Besides making best friends and finding my business partner, podcasting has led to relationships with countless customers and referral partners.

The most important piece that most are missing is the right strategy and we make sure our clients get ROI so it becomes one of the most valuable parts of your strategic partnerships.

Since this requires a lot of humans (we have operations, developers, writers, audio editors, video editors) to do the work we have limited bandwidth and only want to work with the right company. If using a podcast for strategic partnerships, content marketing, and increasing clients and referrals sounds interesting to you go to and contact us or email support (at)
