How can you start a nutrition supplements company at the age of 25, and bring in over $100,000 in sales within just a couple of months?(?!)

That’s what we’re answering on today’s episode, where we are joined by Ben Hebert; a young entrepreneur with a wealth of lessons and wisdom to share that are truly inspiring.

Learning By DOING

While getting his college education, Ben became an intern at GiftCardRescue.com, an online business where he was doing SEO, blog writing and many other operational activities, mainly focusing on marketing. The company was growing rapidly and he was offered to become the start-up’s first full-time employee.

He eventually left the company in search of something he wanted to do and that will give him the freedom he always wanted in life that no corporate job can give. All of the things he learned combined with his passion to music, and inspired him to create his next business venture:

With the Electronic Dance Music (or EDM) trend going strong in the US a couple of years ago, he capitalized on it and created something that was close to his passion that gave birth to WhiteRaverRafting.com, which has now become one of the leading dance music websites in North America.

However successful WhiteRaverRafting.com is, he knew that the Electronic Music trend will eventually wear off – and he wanted something more stable… something more substantial.

Going Natural

“People want to buy from a company they can trust.”

Born out of an idea like anything else, and inspired by a friend/client who knew a lot about the nutritional supplement world, Ben decided to navigate the world of supplements and came up with Natural Stacks.

Unlike other shady nutritional supplement companies, Natural Stacks is a company that has information supported by science, has good manufacturing practices and 100% FDA-compliant.

How did he do it? How did his product get Tim Ferriss excited? How did they go from zero to $100,000 sales in just two months? Tune in to today’s interview to find out!

  1. Loved the show, as always. “Stick to things you’re good at, and make them better.” Become the best. And be foolishly optimistic. Great takeaways.

  2. Another great show! I especially like it because it was about a non-digital product that he created and sells. A great discussion of how to create a business. I especially like his point about “all in, or all out!” (That wasn’t the exact quote, but summarizes it.

    1. Always honored to inspire you, Trev 🙂 Ben does have a very unique attitude, doesn’t he? 🙂

      + Congrats on winning the CLTAP giveaway! I already know your address from another giveaway… you haven’t moved yet, have you?

  3. Great interview. Particularly interested in his SAAS business – so close but yet so far – I feel like I’ve lived that particular one myself 🙂

    If you have any of those samples left, I’m on to try them.

  4. Ben’s approach to business and life was really interesting in this interview – I think he cuts away a lot of the crap and over-thinking that we all seem to struggle. It’s refreshing to hear!

    Plus he’s only a little older than me and I always love hearing about what people in the same ‘stage’ of life as me are accomplishing. It gives me a little push to stop ‘waiting’ until I’m older and have things ‘figured out’.

    Thanks Meron 🙂
