FEATURE: Joey Cutting on “living out your values”
To keep things fresh, I’ll sporadically host “Keepin’ it 100” style writeups from colleagues, friends and celebrities. It’s only fitting that for my first feature blog I host someone who is all three!
World: meet Joey Cutting. Currently serving as the Assistant Director for Western Carolina’s Catamount Club, he’s the ultimate people person. Together, we co-class-clowned our ways to masters degrees as fellow marketing graduate assistants: Joey in athletics and myself in collegiate recreation.
You may know him as “Emcee Joey” rocking the mic at sporting events. He’s probably stolen the show at your local karaoke night by singing (and yes, definitely dancing to) Enrique Iglesias’ “Hero.” If you’ve ever crossed paths with him - you know he embodies the true meaning of a friend.
Fortunately, he’s shared the secret to his consistent authenticity: his core values - AKA the Five F’s Filosophy.
Before you just assume he’s a terrible speller, let’s let him explain why his values drive his successful life:
Faith in myself to do the right thing, believe in my upbringing, and the values my family has instilled in me.
The driver of my success—making them proud and living up to our name through respect and love.
The reason why life has been enjoyable thus far, plus the social balance needed to break free from adulthood stresses.
My biggest hobby and contributor to my peace and well-being. When I’m on the river, I’m in my happy place.
Giving back full-time in philanthropy to my passion that will always be part of who I am – collegiate athletics.”
