We've been friends for 25 years and he's actually my oldest friend that I've interviewed for this show. He is someone I respect a lot. Joe is in the law enforcement but that's not why he is on the show but because he owns a company called Joe Shafer Fly Fishing. He's my client and partner and we've worked together on his website and his strategy. I'm excited to have him on because he's going to bring a different element to the show. The fly fishing business is really cool and very detailed where you have to know your stuff, and it's a service-based business to the core. The better service you provide, the more clients like you, the better tips they lay down, the more they come back and see you.
