JOSH THRONE

“I NEVER REALLY VIEWED MYSELF AS PARTICULARLY TALENTED, AND I DEFINITELY HAVEN’T EVER BEEN THE MOST TALENTED IN THE ROOM. WHERE I DO BELIEVE I HAVE EXCELLED IS HAVING (WHAT SOME MIGHT CALL) AN UNREALISTIC BELIEF IN MYSELF AND A VERY INTENTIONAL WORK ETHIC. I’VE SURROUNDED MYSELF WITH EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE WHO ARE BETTER THAN ME, MORE TALENTED, AND CONTINUE TO CHALLENGE ME TO BE BETTER. I LEARNED TO EMBRACE FAILURE AND ACTUALLY SEEK IT OUT. I TRY TO CONSTANTLY PUSH MY LIMITS. AS I ONCE READ, ‘LIVE LIFE AT THE EDGE OF YOUR CAPABILITIES.’”

Josh Throne has grown to be a widely experienced, known and accomplished go-getter. He had his start in the game of football, as he played for the Arkansas Razorbacks. From there, he continuously took and learned from what life handed him, growing to believe in the importance of constantly pushing his limits. So, after a stint as a successful player-manager in the NFL, Throne made the jump to marketing, serving as the vice president of an Arkansas agency before deciding to make his next leaps: co-founding Craft SEO, acting as a sports personality with Pig Trail Nation and working as a real estate agent.

FIRST TASTE OF SUCCESS:

When I was 23, I worked for Players First Sports in Baltimore (an NFL sports agency). I signed Zach Hocker and Kiero Small out of the University of Arkansas. They both got drafted to the NFL. It was a big day.

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:

I’m really stuck between two. It’s either recently beating DJ Williams in our latest series of 1v1 basketball. (He’ll hate to know this news went public!) Or, maybe it’s partnering with Arkansas Money and Politics on the design/development of its new website. Honestly, I’m not sure which one felt better!

MOST ADMIRABLE QUALITY IN OTHER MEN:

Humility — and the best example that comes to mind is Anthony Lucas. He probably doesn’t even know this (he’s a living legend to people like me), and he’s incredibly humble. He stands out even more because of it. He has a way of making people feel like they are the important ones. It’s special.

SURPRISING FACT:

I worked in the NFL marketing world for most of my early career alongside some of the NFL’s all-time greats. Also, I’ve got a soft heart for animals, dogs especially. I have plans to start a rescue foundation for homeless dogs in the future.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT WHAT YOU DO?

Since my hands are in a few different pots, I learned to love the variety of experiences; every day is different. And in my line of work, I get to help people. That’s the best feeling in life: When you know you have helped someone’s business, which affects their livelihood, their personal goals, their family, etc. It’s the best feeling in the world. (Talking Razorback football on Pig Trail Nation is pretty fun, too!)

REMEMBER ME FOR:

I’d hope that I am remembered for caring about other people more than myself.

ADVICE TO OTHERS FOLLOWING IN YOUR FOOTSTEPS:

To look at self-discipline as self-love. So often in life, we know what we want to accomplish, we know what our goals are, what will make us happy both personally and in our careers, but we don’t stick to the tasks that will allow us to achieve them. Self-discipline is self-love. I first heard Will Smith talk about this, and it really stuck with me. Love yourself enough in this life to be disciplined, so you can be happy with who you see in the mirror.
