Dale Carnegie once said, “Success is getting what you want, happiness is wanting what you get.” But Joe’s guest this week says that Success is not a goal, it’s a lifestyle. His name is Gary Cooper, the co-founder and Executive Chairman of Palmetto Infusion Services, and he’s opening up about his struggles on the road to prosperity in the new book, The Success Paradox.
