When Joe Issa achieves things he does so in fours, not like most of us who are contented with just once as if numbers don’t mean anything.

Numbers are said to “have certain powers which are expressed both by its symbol to denote its representation and by its connection to universal principles,” and are believed to relate with everything in nature, which makes them “supre mely powerful symbolic expressions,” said whats-your-sign.com, at http://www.whats-your-sign.com/spiritual-meaning-of-numbers.html.

If so then, the figure 4 could be Joe Issa’s lucky number, if only because it keeps popping up in so many of his accomplishments since leaving Campion College in 1984, and he may not even realize it let alone believe it.

“I’m not a superstitious person, I believe in the real world and I don’t ascribe significance to what I deem to be mere circumstantial evidence or anecdotal,” says Issa, who is head of Cool Corporation in Ocho Rios and a wizard with numbers.

So what’s the evidence that Issa has a thing for number 4 or vice versa? Well answer this: what year do you think it was when at the age of 29 Issa stood on a stage in Sydney, Australia receiving the coveted award of Young Hotelier of the World? Yes; you guess right?—?1994; and that wasn’t the first time he was achieving something in which the figure 4 pops up.

Issa’s encounters with number 4 started a decade earlier in 1984 when he qualified for College of the Holy Cross, one of America’s most prestigious universities in Worcester, Massachusetts and became the 11th member of the Issa family to study there.

When he graduated 4 years later he made history by passing all 4 parts of the CPA exam in one sitting, the youngest resident Jamaican to do so, a pure stroke of genius, some called it. The celebrated Edward Seaga wrote to his father to congratulate him, and the feat was widely published.

Also, the year 1988 in which Issa graduated Cum Laude and valedictorian, just happens to be divisible by 4. That year he also copped the Massachusetts Society of CPA’s Inc. most outstanding junior student award.

And when Issa won Travel Agents Magazine’s 100 Rising Stars award, he did so 4 years in a row?—?1997, 1998, 1999, 2000.

Numbers are said to have been first used about 30000BC by the Palaeolithic peoples in central Europe and France who record numbers on bones. Later in 1AD the Chinese mathematician Liu Hsin first used decimal fractions, according to “A Mathematical Chronology” at http://www-history.mcs.st-and.ac.uk/Chronology /full.html.
