Explaining Your Longevity Challenge

Speaking with fellow business owners every day, this is what we hear:

I love what I'm doing, but it requires working very long hours, and I feel guilty because I'm eating too much and settling for unhealthy food.

I don't have enough time for my loved ones, let alone time for myself.
To be honest, it's taking a toll on my health. I know I should exercise, but because of stress and limited time, I don't work out regularly and sleep just a few hours - probably too few to fully recover.


Lately, there's been so much change; supplier networks aren't working, costs have significantly increased, and marketing has become more difficult and expensive.

Everyone is talking about AI and how it will replace almost everything.
I'm afraid I can't keep up with all this change and feel I'm falling further behind. I experience a lot of anxiety and it leads to sleepless nights.
How can I master these multilevel challenges, keep and grow my business, and provide for my loved ones and the families of my employees?


I feel exhausted and overworked. I've gained a lot of weight, my blood pressure is too high, and I have difficulties focusing.
Looking back on my day's work, I'm unhappy with my performance. I wasn't able to focus on business development, just managing fires that popped up everywhere in my business. Especially in the evenings, I'm depressed and full of worries.

When I talk with potential new customers, clients, and partners, often times I just can't answer their questions, and in those moments, I feel like a fraud. Someone who was an expert and on top maybe sometimes in his life but now - with all these tech and science advancements - I just can't learn and upskill quick enough to stay relevant.


And there are many more distractions like sick family members or children and grand children to care for, aging parents who need help, failing marriages... an endless list of things competing for your attention and available time.

All of it - if not skillfully managed - will destroy your health.

As a business owner, your health is your business's backbone.
If your health fails, everything you're working for can too. It's like running a car non-stop without ever checking the engine. Eventually, it breaks down. This issue is urgent. Ignoring your health isn't just bad for you; it puts your whole business at risk.

Think of it this way: no health, no business.

It's that simple and that important. And speaking from experience, it happens to the best of us, all the time.


Imagine waking up each day energized, with time for a morning jog before a healthy breakfast.
Your business runs smoothly, leveraging AI to automate routine tasks, allowing you to focus on growth and innovation.
Financially, you're more than secure, able to invest in new opportunities without hesitation.
Weekends are spent with family or pursuing hobbies, not catching up on work. Vacations are regular and rejuvenating, not a distant memory.

This is the life of a business owner who has transcended the usual challenges, living a balanced, fulfilling existence where dreams are the new reality.

Vavida's Founders

Growing old is a privilege, staying healthy a choice.

I am dedicated to empowering individuals to make proactive health choices for the present and beyond. At Vavida, we are committed to helping you make conscious decisions that support your well-being by offering powerful evidence-based solutions that optimize your overall health and extend your lifespan. We do the research and bring the receipts.


Having graduated from European Business School in Germany, for over two decades I contributed my expertise to our family business in the music and technology sector across diverse global markets.
From my initial role in business development, I diligently established a strong network of licensees in our key markets. Later, I transitioned to more senior roles in finance, becoming the financial gatekeeper for our companies.

In the area of finance, I navigated intricate international tax landscapes, collaborating closely with our local CPAs to ensure compliance and maximize revenue streams.
By implementing forensic accounting strategies, we significantly bolstered royalty income for our clients and our own music catalogs.


Motivated by a thirst for knowledge and growth, I embarked on a transformative journey into the field of psychology, studying and graduating in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
Now, I blend my multifaceted expertise to advocate for holistic well-being, drawing from the latest research and insights gained across both business and psychology domains to support others on their longevity journey.
