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.
