As the youngest of three brothers and the grandson of a Greek immigrant from the land of ancient Sparta, ‘J.P.’ was born to be a warrior – and he has a history of hard-fought victories (and set-backs) to prove it.  Whatever the circumstances, he stays positive.

“I’ve been around some very successful people over the years, from Super Bowl champions to self-made millionaires and have come to recognize one thing for sure.  Nothing great is accomplished without enthusiasm.  And enthusiasm means (going back to the Greek word Theos) ‘filled or inspired by God.’  We all need inspiration to overcome our obstacles and to live victoriously, which is why I’m so passionate about the mission and message of this company.”

J.P. enjoyed a Hall of Fame football career at Brown University then played a few years of pro ball before joining a friend to launch a sports magazine that grew to become an Emmy Award winning media/marketing firm serving Fortune 500 clients, later sold to ESPN.  He then joined another friend to build a small real estate firm in Dallas into the Wall Street Journal’s #1 ranked sales team in Texas.  John is a pastor, author and broker who recently completed his first triathlon.  Happily married to his high school sweetheart he enjoys their family of three children, one grand-baby, two eccentric rescue dogs and an adopted cat.  He’s the company’s strategic marketing and communications czar who brainstorms 24/7 to reach and empower others.
