How to build a community that feeds your business?

After meeting his wife, he moved to Philadelphia to further his full potential and network. Networking is one of the major keys in building your business. Joseph explains how he had to build his network tremendously living in a larger city. How? Having weekly meetings and being in attendance to other networking events was the key to his success. Joseph informs his listeners that getting involved with organizations and getting heavy on collaborations will boost your community within your business. After attending and hosting hundreds of real estate events Joseph was able to establish himself in Philadelphia within 9 years.
“How did you establish yourself in philly in such a short period of time” -Nicole Purvy
“If you are not prepared to go to properly set up network events in the Philadelphia market twice a week that are based on subject matter, hustling down transactions or opportunities, and staying away from shortcut routes it will take a while to establish a real platform”
Starting multiple businesses with his wife and his previous knowledge of banking and real estate, Joseph now educates others on how to reach their full potential in a real life scenario. One of their business which is property management is one example of how Joseph put his network and community to use.
“There is still 30 years left in Philly to make a lot of money for all parties”
