Tell us about yourself
I came to the U.S. with $400, a backpack, and a dream of making a difference. I absolutely love helping people reach their goals and be the best that they can be. I continue to strive to be the best possible athlete, biohacker, father, entrepreneur, and leader myself so that I can help and mentor others to achieve the same. I knew that to become the best person I could be, professionally and athletically, I needed to be in optimal health and top physical and mental condition.
My motto is: "I never lose, I win or I learn." With each failure and disappointment, I learned a lesson, never gave up, and persisted in reaching my goals. My passion and drive led me to become a World Record holder in swimming, a CEO of a successful and fast-growing Regenerative Medicine company, an international keynote speaker, a bestselling author, a successful mentor, and a beloved father.
I have helped over 1000 patients. I have a PhD. in holistic nutrition and almost 30 years of experience in health, wellness, nutrition, supplementation, athletic performance, regenerative medicine, and biohacking. I believe I have the knowledge and resources available for anyone to achieve optimal health and maximum performance. You just need to make the decision that you are willing to perform at maximum potential, be the best you can be, and fulfill your purpose in life. I will guide you and keep you accountable, push you above and beyond, help you avoid pitfalls, cut the learning curve, make your goals and dreams bigger, and be there until you reach them!
The real treasures of life are health, happiness, abundance, and living for service. However, without health, none of the other treasures can be achieved. That's why I believe in Health Freedom and have educated and specialized myself in health, nutrition, regenerative medicine, and biohacking. I speak at conferences around the world and educate and mentor people to be the best they can be. I look forward to connecting with you soon!
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Become the CEO of a successful Regenerative Medicine company and help thousands of people abolish their pain and regain their function. With our innovative protocols, we had the privilege to treat NFL players, Olympians, and World Heavy Weight boxing champions.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The hardest part of being a business owner is to find and hire the right team, people with the same morals, values, and passion that believe in the mission of the company.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Create a company culture that engages the entire team.
- Hire the right people, not the right resume.
- Establish systems and proper communication lines, and manage with statistics.
