Joe Johnson says he was destined to be an entrepreneur since he was five years old. He has three older brothers who all wrestled and all own their own businesses. Johnson was given the nickname ‘Bulldozer' at five years old because of his low center of gravity and because he would wear down his opponents until they fell over. Johnson continued wrestling through high school and college where he competed at Michigan State from 2011-2016. The mindset he developed in wrestling set the tone for the mindset he brought to his business ventures.
