Let’s Work Together…
Are you an entrepreneur who knows you are called to do great things in this world, but really don’t have any idea on how to even begin? I know how that feels. And I can assure you…
- If you want to start your own business, ministry or product offering from scratch, or just grow the business you already have…
- If you are a believer, and a follower of Jesus… or even if you just consider yourself “spiritual, but not religious”…
- And especially if you have a desire to change the world while you walk out your calling and purpose…
…then you’ve arrived at the perfect place, and this site is for you.
The Barnabas Principle
We believe God has a calling, a purpose, for every individual, man, woman, and child. That one thing that only you were created to accomplish. You see, our heart beats with the Barnabas principle: when someone hears the Lord calling them to do something remarkable, amazing, or even impossible, they need an encourager, an equipper, and traveling companion to come alongside. We’d like to be that Barnabas to you. We offer training, resources, and services to faith-filled entrepreneurs on how to start, run, and grow their businesses. Some are internet based, others are brick and mortar. Just depends on what you feel God has created and called you to do.
Everything we do is focused on helping you or your organization fully realize your calling, understand your faithful course of action, and the community you are meant to serve.
CEO and Founder
As a certified Guerrilla Marketing Coach and Certified Social Media & Community Manager with over 28+ years of experience in the area of coaching, web & graphic design, and promotional marketing, Joe has worked with numerous national and local corporations, businesses, and nonprofits, applying my gifts in strategic thinking, analysis, and creativity.
He is an author and the Founder & President of Excellent Adventures!, Inc., a small business and ministry marketing communications firm. As a serial entrepreneur, He has also founded Kids Team, Inc., Excellent Marketing Group, Dunwoody Tshirts, Dunwoody Promo, Go Ahead Launch, LLC., Launchpad Institute, and more recently the CorEternal Business Group. While he was at GA Tech, he enjoyed being part of Sigma Nu fraternity.
Graduating from Georgia Tech with an Architectural degree and working in that industry for 14 years gave Joe a great perspective on the corporate world and how business works. He then launched out as an entrepreneur after realizing he just was not having any fun at his job. His first business was called Tom & Joes Excellent Adventures – a corporate event planning business providing custom designed, imprinted sportswear to commemorate the event, modeled after Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventures. Tom soon decided to go on his own adventure, and Joe incorporated the business as Excellent Adventures!, Inc.
Joe is now happily married to my wife Amy for more than 32 years and they have two beautiful children. Currently, we live in Atlanta, GA.
