“Love Others And Especially Your Closest” Words of Wisdom with David Wolfe, Co-Creator of the NutriBullet
I had the pleasure of interviewing David Wolfe, who’s accomplishments include: innovating the Superfoods category in grocery stores, co-developing The NutriBullet Blender and daily creating and operating his Facebook media
Thank you so much for doing this with us! What is your “backstory”?
I’m a nutritionist, organic farmer, adventurer, herbalist, water scientist, paranormal researcher, author and media voice all wrapped up in one. I’m not sure that makes sense to anyone but me. When Steve Jobs said “think different”, I took that advice to heart.
Can you share the funniest or most interesting story that happened to you in the course of your career?
One of my employees, Tony T, way back 15 years ago, had one of the wildest pooping in Nature stories ever. He ended up being observed by an entire train of people passing by slowly as he was in a compromised position. This happened somewhere in the UK, as I recall. I remember all of us sitting in a wild hot springs as he explaining this story from his youth. We laughed for hours on that one.
One of the most interesting things about my career is that I have never missed an event in my entire career. For some reason, I always made it. I’m 3000 for 3000. I’m pretty proud of that!
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
My non-profit Fruit Tree Planting Foundation is the greatest thing I have ever been a part of — ever. We plant anywhere from 35,000–100,000 fruit, nut and medicinal trees each year all over the world. A miracle a month every month for 16 straight years. Check it out for yourself: www.ftpf.org or
If someone would want to emulate your career, what would you suggest are the most important things to do?
- Come at your work and your life with a lot of energy.
2. Break boundaries and keep going.
3. Be a light in the world, a spark of wonder.
4. Find your way to become inwardly happy and content.
5. Love others and especially your closest.
6. Plant forests and jungles and laugh with the most high!
7. Have The Best Day Ever every single day.
Is there a particular person that made a profound difference in your life to whom you are grateful?
Most grateful to my mom. What an amazing woman. Fiercely strong. She’s blowing my mind all the time with the energy and fun she’s having now at her age in spite of the odds.
Can you share a story?
My mom, in her mid-70’s, is the funnest. I got her a stem cell treatment. We were down in Mexico with Hulk Hogan and his wife. Having an absolute blast. Like The Best Time Ever. After my mom’s stem cell treatment she’s at dinner with all of us and the doctors. Suddenly she climbs on her chair and jumps on Hulk Hogan’s back. I had to quickly get out from behind a thick wooden Mexican dinner table loaded with guacamole and grab my mom from his back and lower her down safely. That was 4 hours after her treatment. In all my life, I had never seen my mom get on a chair and jump on someone’s back like that. It was literally The Best Ever.
So what are the most exciting projects you are working on now?
I found DiLogR through my social media. This software fixes a big and coming problem in the social media space. How do you keep people engaged in your media? DiLogR provides numerous tools in one software where you can solve the problem and immediately gain engagement. You see what I’ve done with my Facebook site (facebook.com/DavidAvocadoWolfe) with 12,000,000 fans and you can see what this one tool, with so much versatility, can do for your social media and business.
DiLogR.com is the Next Big Thing. I believe it will change marketing advertising & sales forever. We have seen astonishing results with 100% quiz completions and up to 90% lead generation. We are adapting DiLogR as the platform for all of our businesses as it unifies content and commerce seamlessly. DiLogR’s one-on-one conversations convert at every touchpoint across our entire business on auto-pilot. This is a must to standout and stay ahead of the competition. Its a real game changer.
Another incredible project I am excited about is the software/toolset/book/peak performance coaching Invest In Your Destiny system — that I had to get involved in. I am helping by adding my favorite personal touch to the system originally developed by Gary Spirer, and then we are launching. It is like the summation of my life’s work on personal development, business, relationships, social media, software, and already complete — due to Gary. It feels like this kind of educational work will guide the next 25 years of my career.
Let me keep going. I am super excited about my band MonAtomic. This is a three piece band I am in with two 23 year olds from Sydney, Australia looking to migrate to stay with us in Beverly Hills. It’s outrageous fun. Just beyond awesome. Complete breakthrough on all levels for me from the inside out. We wrote 10 of my favorite songs of all time in 2 ½ weeks while enduring -33C weather in Canada. It was and is outrageous. MonAtomic is The Best Ever!
What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why. (Please share a story or example for each.)
I have trouble coming up with this answer. Got to be honest. I don’t think that way. I love the way my life has turned out. It feels like the only way it could have turned out. I’m proud of my personal accomplishments and I am inspired for the future!
But there is one thing I can think of: I wish I had learned early on to only move an audience 5% at a time. Most of us cannot learn in big jumps. Just a little at a time. The information about the tonic herbs or superherbs (the world’s 50 most important herbs) that we put out 15 years ago, was way ahead of its time. We were trying to move the audience 50% at once, not 5%! Interestingly, the time for superherbs such as turmeric has finally become ripe now!
Some of the biggest names in Business, VC funding, Sports, and Entertainment read this column. Is there a person in the world, or in the US whom you would love to have a private breakfast or lunch with, and why? He or she might just see this. :-)
Ray Dalio: That guy just strikes me as wise and exceptionally intelligent with good karma to become that financially successful. He has a good spiritual countenance for having so much wealth. He’s interesting to watch. I take his advice.
