About Joe Polish:

Joe fell in love with Marketing when he realized as a 4 year old sitting on the counter of his father’s locksmith shop that if he smiled nicely… people would give him TIPS. He parlayed that into his famous “I’m trying to win a trip to Disneyland” Newspaper subscription sales method… and evolved THAT into the name-dropping, self-aggrandizing, super-generous style we all LOVE about Joe.
