The biggest thing that all entrepreneurs should be doing is to
be really in tune with our bodies and the signs that something is
wrong. It just kills the momentum in business when we stop taking
care of ourselves. So, paying attention to the signs and being
consistent with your routines such as fitness, diet, breathwork, or
plant medicine can help keep you on track and be
present. - Aaron Hinde

Being a Wellness Warrior For Our Children
"Kids are strictly in download mode from ages 0 to 7. They're
not even making rational decisions; they're just absorbing
everything. So, everything that they see us do, hear us say, and
what we teach them as parents will affect them either positively or
negatively for the rest of their lives. Everything that they have
to deal with is a result of us as parents and that responsibility
is heavy. So, do I speak to them in scarcity mode? Do I eat
McDonald's every day or do I eat clean? That programming can affect
these kids in perpetuity." - Aaron Hinde
Leading Your Brand With The Golden Rule
"There is no 'work' and there is no 'personal' life, it's just
life. So, we have to approach it like that and when personal things
come up, let's figure it out together. We can overcome all
obstacles but we have to treat people like human beings and treat
them as we or they want to be treated. It all comes back to the
super basic, Gold Rule we all should follow." - Aaron
Attracting Your True Tribe
"It's okay that you're not friends with everybody. It's okay
that not everybody is in your tribe because the great thing about a
tribe is that you attract who you're going to attract and you're
also going to repel who you're supposed to repel. If you're
authentic, then you'll attract people who are also authentic and on
that same wavelength and have a true tribe." - Aaron

LIFEAID founders Orion
Melehan and Aaron Hinde first met in a Crossfit Box in Santa Cruz,
California, in 2009. Melehan was a Certified Financial Planner and
Hinde was a sports chiropractor who worked with many local
athletes. A friendship was quickly struck, which later evolved into
a business partnership. The two were convinced that conscious
consumers would start to demand alternatives to high sugar, high
caffeine, and artificial mass market drinks.
The Launch of LifeAID
They were equally convinced that consumers
were looking for more functionality than the caffeine found in
energy drinks or isotonic sports drinks. After months of
brainstorming and collaboration, they created their vision for
LIFEAID and funded it with a mere $30,000 apiece. Melehan’s
financial expertise helped craft the business plan. Hinde’s
background in nutrition and chiropractic care proved essential when
developing LIFEAID products as he worked with their team of a
biochemist and beverage scientists. LIFEAID now makes six
specially-formulated blends, plus a protein/carb food pouch
Fast forward to today and the company’s products can be found
in hundreds of golf courses, thousands of gyms, and nationwide in
fine retailers such as Whole Foods, Sprouts, and The Vitamin
Shoppe. FITAID is the official recovery drink of the 2017
