About Joey Vitale
Hi! I'm Joey, and my story is probably a lot like yours. I belly-flopped my way into running a business. It was tough, but I eventually found the right combination of mentors, resources, experts, and luck. I made a lot of mistakes, but all my little victories added up, and I made a profit in my first year in business.
Getting sales seemed hard enough. But actually running a business that is generating revenue, and balancing that with your own personal life, that's a whole new level of difficult.
I know what it's like to be an army of one with a business that keeps throwing more balls at you to juggle. I know what it's like to reach a point where your business is taking a toll on your health and wellness. And I know that I'm not alone, because I'm an attorney for creatives — and pretty much all of my clients suffer the same battles.
