The Our Town Podcast showcases all that is good in North Alabama. Each week guests are invited from business, sports, entertainment, education, the arts, and so much more to discuss all aspects of living and working in The 256.
This week Troy chats with John Joseph IV, the executive director of the Decatur-Morgan County Entrepreneurial Center (The E-Center).
John Joseph IV is a native of Decatur and started working in the family’s grocery store – Joseph’s Grocery – at the age of 8. While his education and initial career choices took him away from North Alabama, he came back and has firmly established his family and career back in Decatur.
In this episode John talks about the tremendous success of the E-Center and also shares the incredible story of the creation of the Luanch 2035 initiative called Launch Tank. This episode is moving as John opens up on so many topics and shares how he has learned to deal with tough events and moments in his life.
You will discover, as I did, that John is an incredibly smart and articulate man. Enjoy!
