HI, MY NAME IS JOE LOPARDO
I have a passion for people and love creating things. A pay it forward mindset and connecting like-minded people to foster mutually beneficial relationships is where my heart is. For me nothing beats serving others through being a super-connector and genuine relationships. I always push myself and the people around me to new boundaries in a variety of ways. I view things through an optimistic but realistic lens, and always work to find solutions to life's problems.
Having built my own companies and worked for others, I have experience in both the startup and corporate world. I bring a high level of energy, ambition, and passion to any endeavor. Setting the bar high and surpassing my goals in all things, is the standard I follow.
My specialties include over 9 years of sales, marketing, and business development experience. I excel when dealing with potential or existing partners, clients, or deals in all capacities. Networking, relationship building, and meeting new people are all things I do on an ongoing basis. I also thoroughly enjoy working with and advising entrepreneurs, startups, and small businesses.
I'm a creature of habit and am set in my 5:00 am morning rituals, which include working out and meditation among other things. When I am not working you'll find me enjoying time with my family and friends, losing myself in the great outdoors, and learning something new.
