I like my friends smart, but Joseph Coplans of Ink Stain Inc. leads the pack in nimble and deep thinking.
Joseph isn't new to my life - I've known him for a couple of years now. But this year our friendship moved to new heights, and I consider Joseph to be one of my most valued personal and professional advisors.
Some days I think Joseph has saved me from going down a soulless path with my work.
Joseph is a whip-sharp writer. His true gift is helping entrepreneurs tap the deeper meaning of what they do. A conversation with Joseph helps you understand what you do, what you really do, and the true impact you have on the world. Armed with that understanding, you can more easily communicate your value to potential clients.
I love the work Joseph is doing - marrying mythology and business in a new way that helps what he calls 'emotive entrepreneurs' understand and describe their work more easily.
Joseph is a stellar example of the best kind of man - tons of heart + incredible smarts + real world savvy.
And he's a lot of fun to hang out with.
