Born And Raised In New Orleans
Of course, I wouldn’t be where I am today without making a lot of mistakes, but also a lot of good choices. And one of the greatest blessings in my life was having my parents. I have to admit, they were equally as blessed for their parents; both of my grandfathers served in the military and fought on the front lines for this country.
Growing up, my father owned a men’s clothing store just outside of New Orleans, and as you might have guessed, he gave me my first job. Sandwiched between learning what color suit was best for a job interview, and the difference between a sports coat and dinner jacket, dad gave me my first business lessons. Those lessons, about treating employees and customers with respect, and taking the time to do each job to the best of my ability, are ones I have carried with me to this day, in my current business, REDCON1. As you may have guessed, the name and military theme of the company is directly inspired by my grandfathers.
THE IMPORTANCE OF EMPATHY
After working for my father, even as a teenager, I was never without a job for long. I was also never with a job for very long during my 20’s as the dark side of addiction to heroin consumed my attention.
It wasn’t until my later 20’s that I was able to fight through and break this life gripping addiction and I’ve remained clean ever since.
I’m open and transparent about the dark part of my past as it’s through this real-life experience I’m able to share with my kids the importance of empathy for others going through difficult situations (even if self-inflicted).
From Passion To Profession In Bodybuilding
Eventually, because I loved bodybuilding, I began working in the field as a trainer at a gym. One day I approached a co-worker driving a brand new Porsche. “How can I get a Porsche too?” “You’ll never get a Porsche working here,” he responded.
He wasn’t being mean, he was telling me that being a trainer, even though I loved bodybuilding, wasn’t what I was truly passionate about. Not truly.
Constantly Striving For Knowledge
This was the “eureka” moment that escaped me until that point. I continued to train clients in order to pay the bills, but spent all of my spare time listening to radio shows, reading books, and immersing myself in the world of bodybuilding.
Eventually I wrote to the host of a podcast who had been endorsing a product that didn’t work. I was a huge fan of the show and couldn’t believe that the host (who I am still friends with to this day) would knowingly endorse something that didn’t work.
Creating My First Podcast
I was right – he wouldn’t, and he even had me on the show to talk about it. That led to a spinoff show with me as the co-host, and my first legitimate job in the industry. We recorded over 300 hours of podcasts and that led to another job within the industry, this time at a very well-known bodybuilding media site.
With me as editor-in-chief! I was traveling the world covering bodybuilding shows and interviewing competitors. But still, this wasn’t for me. I wanted my own company, and more importantly, a family.
27TH ON INC. 500’S LIST
I was ready to go all in and create a business of my own. I literally used all of my savings and teamed up with a business partner, and managed to found my first company.
It was named to Inc. 500’s list of fastest-growing companies in the United States (well… 27th in the country and number 1 in the brand’s actual category).
Leaving The Company I Built
It was with a heavy heart in May of 2016, I realized that the company I built with my own blood, sweat, and tears wouldn’t be able to grow into my grandest vision.
Having a business partner can be a blessing. But, as our company grew the vision my partner had and I had also grew apart.
REDCON1, The fastest growing sports supplement brand in history
I left to found my own company, REDCON1. I guess some of those lessons about treating everyone with respect, learned in dad’s clothing store as a kid, paid off.
When I founded REDCON1, I was able to recruit the best of the best from the whole industry—people I’d met over the years and with whom I had developed friendships and mutual respect, who were willing to take a chance on a new company because they trusted me and my vision.
REDCON1 is the fastest growing sports nutrition company in history. In four short years, we have gone from five employees to over a hundred, and as we’ve grown, have been able to branch out with our own charity (The REDCON1 Foundation) as well as being able to support numerous other charities and charitable causes.
