Again, what must be noted is his lovely warm Caribbean accent, which reflected his friendly and laid-back character.
Joe is cool, calm and collected which does stand out against a world which is at times chaotic and loud.
Like everyone else we have met, his advice was fantastic - urging you to focus on the "can do's" and not the "can't do's".
He also said his competitive nature has helped him regain some normality in his life, which is good advice and how he is also a lot more positive and does not 'dwell' on things - a theme we have noticed with many people.
Lastly, he was incredibly gracious to us at the end when we had finished the interview - which considering he had just met us - again reflected his warm character.
As Joe is our final episode of the launch of the Podcast during ABI week, we thought it was a nice episode to end the week with as Joe is so grounded and positive.
One thing I thought might be nice to end on is something Joe says during the interview - he takes time to reflect on his life before his 'New Me' but does not dwell on it.
I need reminding of this at times myself and must stop and think 'am I reflecting or am I dwelling?' - two very different things. I like reflecting on how far I have come after my brain injury but there are times when I dwell too much on the man I once was and this is not healthy.
So reflect on the changes every now and then but relish in 'A New Me'.
