And so it begins…Natural Products Expo West 2014

Well, it has been a while since I posted anything.  I apologize, we have been busy with Super Happy Juice and some other things.

I did attend the Natural Products Expo in Anaheim two weeks ago, and it was a BLAST!  I went there to meet several potential partners, suppliers, industry connections, and source a few items we still need.  It was a very successful event.

Jay Kordish, aka, The Juiceman!

I had a chance to meet, this guy–Jay Kordish.  He was one of the first “juicers” in the industry.  He had several infomercials and is still rockin’ the heck outta the Puma track suit.  He’s a legend!

Speaking of legends, how about this.  I am an Olympic Fan to no end.  Hannah Kearney, two-time Medalist was at the Chobani booth, signing a few autographs.  I was able to get a photo with her and my friend Mike.  AND, she let me hold her medals.  First time I’ve held an Olympic Medal.  Very inspiring, to say the least.  Hannah was super cool, and gave me her info to send her a copy of our photo.  She posted it to her Facebook page, and is interested in trying out Super Happy Juice when we launch.  Super Happy Olympian!

The captivating Vanessa “Chocolate Girl” Barg, Founder of Gnosis Chocolate

As I mentioned, Expo West is a great place to network, and reconnect with people.  Since I absolutely love raw chocolate, I get to sample a seemingly endless supply of tasty bites.  One of my favorite people in the cacao space is Vanessa Barg, the Founder of Gnosis Chocolate.  If you haven’t already…check it out.  You’ll fall in love.

I also saw Josh Handy, with Earth Circle Organics, and Mirek Boruta with Seed Group.  Look for great things out of both of those companies.

Go for the people, stay for the SWAG!

The above photo is the real reason to go.  At the end of the event, the exhibitors give away the product, rather than haul it home.  I try to to get greedy, and I think I did a decent job.  Some of my favorite products were shaving items.  Every Man Jack gave me an outstanding shaving brush and after shave lotion…I LOVE them!  Also, I tried a shaving cream from Elvado in almond scent…OMG!!

Finally, I found a few super cool products that I’ll be revealing in a short bit, and we start using them with Super Happy Juice.  Which, is about to launch!!

Super Happy Excited to get this started!

Until next post…
