Guest, CHAD PRICE
While working as a gas controller in corporate America for TransCanada in Houston he discovered that corporate America wasn’t sustainable for him long term and he wanted to start his own business. Seeing the inner workings of a large corporation gave him the impetus to start his own e-commerce focused business.
Along with two partners they narrowed down their product list and settled on kettlebells. At the time it wasn’t a known space but was a growing market. He desired to build kettlebells as the centerpiece of a health and wellness community. Then started the first BIPOC owned Kettlebell company, “Kettlebell Kings” which is like the ESPN of the kettlebell world. A place to foster a community of people using kettlebells as the centerpiece of fitness. Take everyone’s content alongside their uniquely created content and display it in a way that’s easy for people to consume and feel part of a community.
In business he can be as competitive as he wants and not worry like he did on the sports field, when he was in Rice University.
After ten years, Chad’s first venture Kettlebell Kings was acquired by Razor Group for millions of dollars.
Then went on to create and start “Life Grows Green” is a side project that he started as a result of negative images and culture around hemp plants. Being a big believer in natural and green products which is naturally encompassed in Hemp he tried to make products just from nature; natural based products. Products that include: CBD related capsules, oils, tinctures, salves, peanut butter, honey, melatonin and protein powder and made them available direct to the online consumer.
Chad continues his commitment to fitness, health and wellness and makes sure to travel extensively and spend time with his family.

Life Changes Show
Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!
A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.
In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.
The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
