They offer a 21 Day Detox to Reset, Restore and Revitalize the digestive system, resulting in significant weight loss. With over 10,000 members the company motto is BE WELL, LIVE WELL and STAY WELL. Here is our conversation with Dax.
Q: Are you a business person or entrepreneur or both?
I am a business man because I am always looking for an opportunity to create value. But I find most businesses men are focused on making money. I focus on Creating Value for myself and the people around me. I have been blessed to share things that people need and from a position of supporting the experience and it’s been good business.
I am an Entrepreneur as I am cured with ideas galore. The most important innovation that I can focus on is Self Care, a simple App to SHARE WHAT’S WORKING FOR YOU. And learning about what’s working for others.
Q: What was your profession before you started your business?
Mortgages and Radio Personality
Q: Who or what motivated you to go into business?
Getting amazing Results
Q: Did you face any challenges in mobilizing your capital?
Not this time, we just used what we had
Q: Tell us about your business?
21 day Natural Detox for weight loss
Q: Many businesses have a moment they call their “big break”, whether it be a news story, a big contract etc. Have you or your business had that “”big break ” yet?
Yes when we tapped into the Indian community internationally. My partner and Fiancé, Vanya Chopra is from India. Today we serve a significant part of the Indian Expatriate community and countries like Suriname have played a significant role in the company’s development.
We are currently looking at producing some of our products and distributing some of the other products that we currently represent.
Q: Currently what is our biggest business challenge?
Staying connected with the changes in technology can be sometimes challenging…by partnering with young dynamic entrepreneurs we stay abreast of the newest and best business solutions.
It has been a process to reach our ideal clients, but they get it right away. They are ready for a solution, so getting to them is the key.
Q: Other than the money, what types of satisfaction do you get out of your work?
Life, I live my ultimate lifestyle, I have wanted to go to India for my whole life. Because of this business not only did I go to India, I did way more that I could ever imagine.
Q: What motivates you on a day to day basis?
Love, sounds like “Really” but it’s the LOVE of Life, I see it constantly. We have opportunities in every moment to love life. That’s what I live for, or that’s at least, my intention.
Q: How do you motivate people that aren’t close to you and enable them to see your vision?
Honestly I don’t feel that’s necessary, we all have a spark, a vibe inside that tells us what’s up. I can only speak for me, but I just know the people that are right for me. Yes I do have disappointments but that’s my expectations. I am always sharing my vision in ALL WAYS, those who get it get on board and it’s JUST LOVE.
Q: How do you remind yourself of what’s important?
God, in every Breath I give thanks, it’s all about the Breath of Life, if you are not breathing you are dead, it’s simple, so remember to breathe deeply and pay attention to your life.
Q. What time do you wake up and do you have a routine?
I wake up at 4:30am I intend to meditate but more often than not I am in conversation with our Partners in India and the Philippines. I work from home and socially, I prefer small intimate gatherings.
Q. Do you have any hobbies?
Vanya and I enjoy taking long motorcycle rides and aside from business travel, we love traveling to ancient lands and remote destinations…Recently we visited the Fabled Island of Fire and Ice, Reykjavik, Iceland and discovered Ancient cities like Machu Picchu, Peru… just to name a few….One of my hobbies is flying remote-controlled Helicopters.
Q. If the economy crashed hard and there was no more room for you in the business sector, what would you do with yourself?
I have actually been there…and so I know it’s possible to “build a better model” from scratch in a totally different sector.. my passion for Wellness led me to create a new vision. I will continue sharing with others how to live well and create wellness every day.
