First of all, thank you SO much for taking the time to reach out and for your interest in being part of the Nutrition Faktory Team!
I wanted to start by sharing a little bit about me, @MichaelBires, the founder of Nutrition Faktory. I'll try to keep it as short as possible :)
I grew up in a small town (13,000 people) in Northern Ohio with a dad who worked his butt off at Ford to provide for my sister and I. I graduated high school at age 17 and found myself working at a factory to save up money for school. While in school I worked part-time at a health food store where I'll never forget meeting an elderly woman who claims I "saved her life"! About a month prior I had recommended a joint product that allowed her to work in her garden again because the product stopped her knees from hurting. Her garden was everything to her since her husband had passed and it was the one thing that gave her joy and made her want to continue living. This was CRAZY to me that I could change someone's life for the positive by simply "doing my job"! THIS is where I fell in love with this industry!
After that experience I owned a few nutrition stores in Ohio, moved to Southern California and became VP of a big chain of nutrition stores (where I learned so much) and left there to become VP of a large supplement brand (again, more learning). Ultimately I felt like I was "chasing money" and lost sight of WHY I fell in love with this industry in the first place. That's when a group of us started @Motiv8Performance in 2014 with the goal of creating an empowering brand that genuinely wanted to change peoples' lives for the positive...and it worked!
Fast forward to 2017 when I moved here to Tennessee to get closer to my family in Ohio and I was still focused on Motiv8. Living here I quickly noticed that it was hard to find affordable supplements here in Middle Tennessee so my focus shifted. Having been in the industry for so long I reached out to supplement brand owners that had become my friends over the years and asked them if they would sell directly to me. This would allow me to sell wholesale to the public so we could show Middle Tennessee that supplements can be AFFORDABLE! They agreed and Nutrition Faktory was born! Since that moment my goal has remained the same, give customers the best experience they've EVER had buying Vitamins and Supplements while changing lives for the better along the way!
I share my background, not because it's anything special, but because if I were to join a movement, I would want to know the answers to a few questions...Who is this girl/guy? What does this person stand for? Why are they doing this? What am I REALLY becoming a part of?
I can tell you that I am done chasing money. I'm done doing things for the wrong reasons. I'm here to be a part of something TRULY SPECIAL and the only way it becomes special is WITH people like you! We can DO MORE together!!!
As mentioned in our post, my dilemma and hesitancy in launching a program like this has been that by offering the lowest every day pricing it makes it tough to give an extra discount. I NEVER want to offend a potential teammate so I asked myself, "what can I do extra for these great people that want to be a part of this special movement?!?!" Here is what I came up with:
