“I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.” — Oscar Wilde
Ben Goodwin is a college dropout who — alongside business partner David Lester – launched OLIPOP as the world’s first clinically-validated soft drink that’s good for digestive health.
Valued at US $200M+, OLIPOP is available in more than 20,000 stores (including Whole Foods, Walmart and Target) and has an A-list of investors such as the Jonas Brothers, Camila Cabello, Priyanka Chopra, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Raised on the standard American diet, and enduring a traumatic childhood, Ben had an epiphany at 14 where he began focusing on exercise and nutrition for the first time. Through that process, he lost 50 pounds and developed a love for how the things we put in our bodies contribute to physical and mental health – especially the human microbiome.
OLIPOP has taken off and been heralded as the most disruptive innovation in the soda category since Diet Coke in 1981.
In this episode:
» How a traumatic childhood shaped the man he is today
» Ben’s best entrepreneurial lessons
» What he’s doing to remain one step ahead of the competitors, and
» How he built OLIPOP into a disruptive powerhouse.
Let's WIN THE DAY with Ben Goodwin!
