As an entrepreneur, father of four and husband, I make taking care of my health a top priority. But it hasn’t always been that way.
In my late 20s, I was working non-stop to get my first business off the ground. My daily routine consisted of fast food, no sleep and an enormous amount of stress — until one day my body just gave out.
For the next two years, I could barely function. I was in and out of doctors’ offices trying to understand what had happened and how I could get better. Finally, I got a diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The effects could be permanent, but one doctor thought I had a shot at recovery, if I was willing to do the work.
The trade-off? Extreme lifestyle changes: better stress management, a strict diet, regular exercise and 100% focus on my wellbeing.
Over the next few years, my health improved dramatically and along with it my ability to perform at work, be present at home and get real rest.
During my recovery, I met with a crew of phenomenal Western doctors, who introduced me to the far-reaching benefits of Eastern medicine and the untapped potential of CBD. The downside was the supplement market itself. Unregulated with poor quality ingredients, empty promises and false claims. I found myself mixing and matching pills hoping for the best. The trial and error was exhausting and expensive.
I realized that if I wanted high-quality wellness products made with the best ingredients and totally transparent manufacturing processes, I was going to have to make them myself.
So I created FOCL.
My experiences taught me that focus is the key to living better. Focus on work, relationships, wellness and rest. We can only be at our best when we’re able to give our all to the things that matter most.
My mission is to empower everyone’s next-level performance through plant-based, high-quality wellness.
Because we all deserve to live healthier and be happier.
