Josh sits down with Wild Zora co-founder Zora Tabin. Wild Zora is a paleo snack and meal brand that supports people who live a healthy lifestyle have clean food on the go! There’s truly no planning for a spark of innovation and the same can be held true for Zora’s paleo meals. After being dissatisfied with the sweet snack bar options that left you hungry after a half hour, she decided to make her own savory take on backcountry snacks. By combining quality meat with organic veggies Zora slowly perfected her tasty treats and meals into what Wild Zora has become today
Josh sits down with UnTapped co-founder Ted King. UnTapped makes maple-based energy products. Though you might not think it, that sweet succulent syrup is actually packed with nutrition containing amino acids, electrolytes, antioxidants, as well as being low glycemic source of energy. But why maple syrup? Before King became the maple guru he is now, he was (and still very much is) a professional bike racer, having ridden in just about every race you can think of. Being the only athlete from New England competing in these races, he would often get greeted to new places with quarts of maple syrup by fans to feed his maple obsession. After being fed up for far too long with the rough effects of energy products on the market, Ted resorted to downing maple syrup and in turn discovering the perfect alternative for the processed products he was used to. Since then, UnTapped has blown up and we’re lucky enough to get a front-row seat to the story behind the syrup.
Josh sits down with Livsn Designs founder Andrew Gibbs-Dabney. Livsn Designs is an outdoor clothing company dedicated to making durable goods for people who want to own less, experience more, and spend more time outside. It’s no secret that there is a ton of waste coming from the apparel industry which is why Andrew is so dead set on going against the tide of mass-produced cheap goods. Having a ton of experience in the outdoor apparel industry, Andrew cut his teeth getting his start in the warehouse of an outdoor apparel company and slowly working his way up to become CEO, gaining knowledge with every step of the way. It’s no wonder Livsn Designs has been rapidly on the up and up and we’re psyched to see what comes next!
Josh sits down with Hemp Daddy’s Therapeutics co-founder Caleb Simpson. Hemp Daddy’s Therapeutics makes CBD or Cannabidiol oil, transdermal cream, and capsules that offer a wide range of both mental and physical health benefits to help with inflammation, depression, anxiety, pain, and a number of other ailments. We’re no strangers to Caleb as he was a founder of Bearded Brothers, one of our earliest brand that we worked with so naturally, we had to find out the motivation for stepping away from bearded brothers and jumping into a completely new endeavor. With more and more studies and acknowledgment of the health benefits of CBD we are beyond interested in its effects and development, especially since Simpson's motivation to start this budding business (no pun intended) came from witnessing the pain relieving and anti-inflammatory effects of CBD first hand.
