He is the Founder and Chief Executive Angel of SavingsAngel.com®, which bolsters the buying power of the average U.S. family by combining technology, coupons and smart thinking for extreme savings on household consumables and everyday items.
Through his work with SavingsAngel.com, Josh has emerged as one of the nation’s leading experts on consumer savings.
Josh launched SavingsAngel, Inc. from his Holland, Michigan, home in 2007. Like most Americans, he wanted to reduce his family’s grocery bill; armed with a background in information technology and internet development, he did just that. Josh’s technologic tinkering cut his family of five’s monthly grocery bill by half, to $300, and created SavingsAngel.com®, the most comprehensive coupon and sale matching service available. SavingsAngel.com has become a major operation employing up to 50 employees and grossing more than $5 million in sales with less than $500 in advertising spent.
Since then, Josh has shared his successful couponing and savings expertise with millions of families, both online, in person as a dynamic public speaker, and through his weekly appearances as an expert on Fox 35 Orlando and News 13, as a weekly syndicated columnist for nine newspapers (with total readership above 1.1 million readers), and on a number of radio stations, and regularly appearing on more than 75 TV stations across the country. All told, Josh has appeared on TV or radio more than 1500 times.
In April 2014, Josh launched the 90 Days to Abundance podcast – which launched to rave reviews and instant success. By the third week, it was already featured as the number one shopping podcast in iTunes. In this very popular consumer shopping and savings podcast, Josh shares life hacks, deals, and researched strategies for earning and saving more money.
Through the years, Josh has consulted dozens of successful entrepreneurs – assisting them in creating the same sort of success he’s earned. That consulting eventually led to the creation of upendPR.com – which is designed to consult with and provide the tools for entrepreneurs who want to dramatically increase their own sales by attracting the perfect audiences without the typical expense associated with a PR firm.
upendPR is a software as a service / membership-based website providing step-by-step video coaching, live training, direct access to over 1 million media contacts, media monitoring for ongoing story-ideas, agency-level journalist inquiry monitoring, ongoing pitch creation, and impactful consulting for entrepreneurs and startups seeking to exponentially increase sales & traffic.
Passionate about his family, physical fitness (an avid fitness geek and 5K to marathon runner), and performing improv comedy, Josh now resides in Orlando with his wife and three children.
The Michigan native’s exuberance and natural curiosity have fueled his life’s work as a journalist, technology specialist, entrepreneur and service-oriented family man. Josh served in the US Navy and earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in family science/therapy from Brigham Young University.
