Joel is a New York Times best selling Author who has written 5 books, a sought after public speaker who educates and inspires, a leading authority in new media marketing, and an entrepreneur with several top ranked apps under his belt. Speaking of belt, while all of those things are incredible in and of themselves, the reason I wanted to have Joel on the bFitandLive podcast was to talk about how his belt expanded to 40+ inches back in 2010.
