As a first generation Italian my initial and ongoing challenge was not having the ability to speak proper English. I struggled through school until the tenth grade I made the honor roll for the first time…what an achievement for me!

When I was seven my family owned an Italian Restaurant in Wildwood New Jersey near the boardwalk. One day my favorite uncle John came to pick me up to go fishing on the pier. While fishing, he looked down at me and said, “Jo Jo you can bring the horse to the water, but you can’t make it drink.” I replied, “ZIO-(Uncle) how do you make it drink?” The surprise on his face left him speechless for a brief moment then he replied, “I don’t know.”

Ever since then I’ve been asking myself that same question and instead I asked myself, “How Do I Get Someone To Help Them self?” I had this burning desire to help people help themselves so I did. First as a Hospital Corpsman in the NAVY, then opened a personal training studio called Total Fitness and operated if for 24 years, then I went back to finish my degree in 2015 at 52, then started a life coaching-behavior specialist business in 2017 called Wheel Potential after the award winning product which is being rebranded to B-Posi+ive. An app that will help a person help themselves, by helping people feel better.
