Pop quiz… what do you think would be the most detrimental to your health… lack of food, water, or sleep? Well, you’ll have to listen to this episode to find out, as Joe shares the answer and it may surprise you.

Not only is Joe a successful startup CEO, but he is also an endurance athlete. I’m talking about someone who is pushing their body to the ultimate limits… things like running a marathon a day for six days across six continents which is something that Joe accomplished.

As he shares, running a startup is a lot like being an endurance athlete in terms of the mentality and the commitment not to quit when things get hard or challenging. Your mindset is so critical to the foundation of your success.
