Here’s his transformation story:
I’ve spent many years dedicating most of my time and effort building my business at the cost of maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Although my efforts were recognised when I won the Top ICT Entrepreneur in Africa award, I lacked balance and was desperate for change. Health and fitness has always been an important aspect of my life, but I somehow managed to push it to the background whilst focusing on “what I thought” was bigger goals.
I realised that, just like my business, my body needed care and attention in order to function at its best. I started introducing positive lifestyle changes during 2012 and never looked back. I now strongly advocate leading a healthy, active and balanced lifestyle as it improves your mood, productivity, energy levels and happiness. Having a healthy balance in life has not only benefited me, but also my business and allows me to work towards goals that are bigger than ever before. I encourage everyone to do the same and make the change, it’s so much more than just worth it.
Why I love PURE!
I love the fact that the ethos of Pure Nutrition has been built on the following principles: Integrity, Quality, Commitment, Education and Efficacy. Their products are based on intelligent research, which guarantees the highest quality, ensuring that we as consumers achieve optimum results.
