CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER | BOARD OF DIRECTORS
What makes your style unique? Joey Martin has a unique ability to clearly and quickly analyze the “10,000 foot view” and communicate that effectively into manageable strategies that are crucial components to the continued growth of WarPaint International™. His experience with entrepreneurial enterprises, finance and banking, philanthropic organizations and small business strategic consulting is extensive and lends to his mastery in the art of business management.
What inspires you? The hero’s journey. The classic mythos of someone who finds the strength and grit to endure overwhelming obstacles and gives their life to something bigger than oneself. A common theme throughout all human history and often overlooked at a micro level. Every day people commit small acts of heroism which inspire, even the mere act of getting out of bed can be seen as this for some based on their circumstances. A parent to their child, a stranger helping those in need, a woman who boot strapped the idea to build this company—all potential examples of dedication to something greater where an everyday hero can be seen.

Daniel Craig, Sean Connery, Steve McQueen, George Clooney, Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Richard Avedon, Kurt Cobain, Bear Grylls, The Kennedy Brothers and Marcello Mastroianni.
