We had the good fortune of connecting with YB Papa J and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi YB, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
No matter if it’s a win or loss. You always have to keep going. Quitting is NEVER A OPTION.. Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
It’s never easy when you bet on yourself, but you have to have faith and believe in you.

I’ve learned ever lost is a lesson

We need world peace, the world needs free hugs and I will do anything to make that change

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’m a nature type of guy. I would take them to Charlie Elliot wildlife center, where we can fish, hike and shoot at the gun range.

Vegan bar is also my go to

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
