Brent Cowin joins me to talk about childhood sports, working on his Grandfathers farm and of course his companies new app called JooJoo which is currently available for iOS devices.
I really enjoyed talking with Brent about some of his childhood memories and learning more about him including which sport he enjoyed playing the most while growing up and which position in that sport he prefers.
We also discussed some of his early entrepreneur ventures which included selling books door to door that he found under his bed.
There is much more that we discussed including how JooJoo came to be and why you would want to install this free application on your iPhone or iPad to help your friends and families know what places and things are that you recommend.
