5-Star PERSONALITY, PASSION and EXPERTISE!

With my job as a postman, it has given me the perfect opportunity to binge-listen to past episodes of the show that I haven’t heard before and even re-listen to some of my favourite episodes. I have started from the very beginning of the show and I am slowly working my way through each episode, taking in all the valuable information from Joe and his illustrious list of guests. I never really took notice of the podcast intro before now, despite listening to hundreds of episodes. Even though I am listening to every single episode, I never skip the badass intro to the show. In the intro it says “and now he’s bringing PERSONALITY, PASSION and EXPERTISE to you”. Like I said, before now I never really thought anything of this but after listening to the show over and over again, the other day, this really stood out to me. I believe this is what makes The Industrial Strength Show. Even though I don’t personally know Joe, I certainly feel like I do after listening to episodes with his family and friends and Joe’s PERSONALITY is definitely someone who I feel I would be good friends with if I ever got the chance to meet Joe. Joe’s PASSION in his field, is what I feel, makes Joe so successful at what he does best. To be able to provide thousands of hours of free information to hundreds of thousands of fans/listeners truly speaks for Joe’s passion in the industry. Which brings me on to Joe’s EXPERTISE. His passion and expertise goes hand-in-hand. Joe’s expertise is second-to-none and shows his vast experience in the industry, covering all things lifting and nutrition, as well as life skills and manners. Joe, keep up to good work and keep the episodes coming, getting me through the cold and wet UK weather delivering people’s mail. Daniel Makin!
