The #1 Discipline-Based Podcast
Discipline. How does it play a role in your life? How does it drive your decisions? Do you have too much or too little? Every profession, hobby, or passion requires a level of discipline. I have used it in weight loss (+130 lbs.), family death, and found a +25 year business. Am I an expert? Absolutely not!
Please join me, as I speak to interesting people and find out how discipline affects their career, life, goals, and decisions.
Do you long for self-discipline growth in any of the following areas?

Hi, I’m Joe Pannone, aka Joey Pinz (a golf nickname). As a curious gen-x child I was constantly asking questions. This laid the foundation for my disciplined question-based learning. Living primarily in the northeast US, son of immigrants and father of two daughters, I have developed a necessity for discipline.
When asked how I faced some of my life’s challenges, my answer always begins with discipline. How did (or do) I:
- lose 135+ pounds
- found and run 25+-year-old business
- after the loss of my sister, comfort family and start a foundation
- teach myself computer languages in 1980
- get a pilot’s license at age 45
- maintain a golf 5 handicap
- complete 5 triathlons
- travel from NYC to Italy by myself at 10 years old
- earn class clown in high-school
- intermittent fast
Where do I lack and need more discipline?
- matters of finance
- developing a deeper connection with extended and European family
- exercise and fitness
- donation of my time and money to charity
- community development, both locally and globally
- loving my neighbors
- finding peace in my heart towards those that have committed atrocities
- accepting of compliments
- at times, short-tempered
- and much more…
How do we use discipline to better ourselves and society?
Growth through learning from others
I will speak to interesting people that relate to my passions.
Wellness: Health & Fitness
I was once 340 pounds! Always fit and active in athletics, I started a business and disregarded my health. A pre-diabetic diagnosis and the possibility of not seeing my daughters grow up was the moment of clarity. Discipline, long-term diet, fitness, some triathlons, and CrossFit turned me around. I am now 200 pounds and always looking to get healthier.
My newest endeavor has been with Jiu-Jitsu. I am completely out of my comfort zone with it. I admire and respect the discipline.

Technology, Business, and Science
As a tween, I self-taught programming. In 1993, after graduating college, I founded a tech provider business, as I love tech trends, platforms, and gadgets. Technology plays a significant role in the advancement of humankind.
How to grow, keep customers, employees, vendors, and partners happy in business intrigues me.
Science is a beautiful branch of knowledge, specifically how it intersects with technology.

Entertainment: Music, Sports, Film, Comedy, and Art
My fondness for music began with my mother’s Beatles albums. As a live music enthusiast, I am also a savant of 60s, 70s & 80s music. I am a hobbyist-level guitar player and I could be an adequate rhythm guitar backup, with my ten chord knowledge, for someone talented.
I enjoy stand-up and the history of comedy, going to live performances as often as possible.
I passionately follow many sports. An avid and amateur golfer, I love to play and learn. I played soccer all my life, but no longer play. I coached my daughters in soccer. I closely follow the major American sports.

Culture: Travel, Food, Family and Language
At ten years old, without notice, my father flew me alone from NYC to Naples for summer vacation. I met my immediate Italian family and continued to visit them into my adulthood. I have had the great experience of traveling to a lot of the US and parts of Europe. I earned my private pilot license but did not keep up with it.
While my Italian needs a lot of improvement, I am a bit of an English grammarian. I try to avoid the misuse of some words or phrases: literally, (ir)regardless (no ‘ir’), true fact, too much like, anyways (no ‘S’), re-emphasis, I don’t disagree, I’m a realist and adulting.
I enjoy fine dining and the art of cooking. I often cook for friends and family. My cooking is from scratch and has an Italian slant, given my ancestry.
In 2004, my sister tragically died in a car accident at 30 years old. She left behind her two young children. We immediately started a fund in her honor.
