For this episode, I am sharing an interview I did several years ago with Joe Whitty, founder of Happy Joe's Pizza & Ice Cream and a very successful business owner. Mr Whitty died on Oct 29, 2019 at the age of 82. Joe was an amazing businessman with an even larger heart. He is well known for not only his pizza franchise but for his generosity. I am honored to have had the opportunity to conduct this interview. You can learn more about Happy Joe's at https://www.happyjoes.com/about/
