In the summer of 2015, broke and defeated after two years of failing at my first startup, I moved out of my Boston apartment and back home to Mom & Dad’s. With the pressure of rent and food no longer plaguing me, I had time to reflect on the previous years from both a business and personal standpoint. Where did I go wrong? What could I have done better?
I decided to start reading and experimenting more with diet and exercise, maximizing productivity, improving my relationships, and bettering myself as a whole. I soon found out that one of those (diet!) drastically impacted all the others.
Through trial and error, I learned that eating whole plant foods and avoiding meat, dairy, and processed foods had me feeling invincible. As I gradually made a transition to becoming vegan, my life started to change.
At the end of 2015, I sold the majority stake of my business to a venture capital firm in Singapore. I literally went from living and running my business in my parents’ basement to selling it to an entity on the other side of the world. What’s crazy is, I truly believe that adopting a whole food vegan diet was the catalyst for it all to happen.
