Honesty is often accompanied by disappointment. What people would like to hear is rarely in harmony with reality. But, like the rising tide, reality is inevitable. The larger the castle you build on the sands of an alternate reality (the one which exists only in your mind), the more catastrophic your downfall will be. Become comfortable disappointing people with honesty. And know that a true friend will never allow you to build that precarious fortress in the sand.

What does De Novo mean to you?

To me, De Novo Nutrition is a conduit for creation and expression. That’s really why we’re able to do so well – everyone is simply doing what they want to do. This creativity and passion shows through in our marketing, branding, and through the products themselves. We all get a chance to put our own “art” out there and actually reach an audience through the “big other” that De Novo Nutrition has become. It’s like I’ve been handed a metaphorical megaphone – but more than that. Our team has such a wide range of skills that I could not acquire all of them in my entire lifetime. Ideas and creations that would have otherwise gone unrealized are brought to life.
