Joe's advice to people wanting to start a business would be to find something you are truly passionate about. From this, you can work out what impact and change you can have within the world. This will then allow you to have an overall goal to focus on whilst bringing around change.
Also, Joe suggests having an MVP (minimum viable product).
"Don't be scared of being perfect. Being open to constructive criticism is key, it will help you develop as an entrepreneur"
Joe is clearly doing very well, running a great business at such a young age.
