41. Living w/Intention w/Aaron Hinde
No Excuse To Miss
In this episode of No Excuse to Miss Podcast, Scott Volquartsen and Aaron Hinde start the discussion in the energy drinks industry and then charge into the empowering idea that how we react to life events determines the outcome we receive. Making the switch from successful chiropractor to energy drink entrepreneur, Aaron delves into the notions of staying true to your niche audience, how to become “uncancelable,” and the importance of quality people on your team that provide excellent workplace culture. Scott and Aaron bust the myth of work-life balance when Aaron makes the statement that “it’s just life.” Aaron explains that intentionality in life and work is what the goal is. Once there is intentionality, we live with purpose, minimize distractions, and can be present in everything we do. Connect with Aaron!

LIFEAID with Co-Founder and President Aaron Hinde
Glam & Grow - Beauty Business Podcast
While the beverage space is more crowded than it’s ever been, back in 2011 Aaron Hinde, co-founder of LIFEAID, was searching for healthy alternatives to what was out there. Being a sports chiropractor at the time, patients would ask him what sorts of drinks they could use to recover from various activities. He was offering some DIY home remedies when it occurred to him that there might be a real need that the market wasn’t addressing.The method that LIFEAID uses today is the same that Aaron used when creating the first formulas: look at what you want to achieve in the beverage, find clean, healthy, functional ingredients and make the drink taste great. In this episode Aaron also discusses:How taking the time to say “thank you” to a manufacturer that originally turned them down led to a life changing opportunityHow he lived in a 400 sq ft RV with his wife and two kids in the early days of the companyWhat advice he received to allow the business to focus and growLessons he learned from watching tragedy unfold in his personal lifeYou’ll also hear about the restful sleep powder stick line, which has been really important as people adjust to a major increase in screen time over the past 18 months.You’ll find Aaron’s insights inspiring and humble. You might even decide to try LIFEAID after this episode, I recommend Immunity.

#21 - Aaron Hinde: Co-Founder & President of LIFEAID Beverage Company, from the party scene to the boardroom, the meaning of hustle & going all in, scarcity mindset equals bankruptcy, and plastering flyers in porta potties
Ep 21: Aaron Hinde is the Co-Founder & President of LIFEAID Beverage Company where he has re-imagined the drink choices of those pursuing an active and healthy lifestyle. Previously immersed in the health field as a Doctor of Chiropractic, he noticed a genuine need in the marketplace for clean and effective sports drinks without the sugar and artificial flavoring. In 2011, Aaron co-founded LIFEAID to provide individuals with specially formulated, low-sugar, high-value natural supplement beverages. In the high-failure world of CPG inundated with huge manufacturers and immense competition, LIFEAID is now on a trajectory to reach $100 million in revenue and is all gas, no brakes. His path to success has been a story of “the road less traveled”. From the party scene to the CrossFit scene, Aaron makes no bones about how passion, work ethic, luck, pushing all the chips onto the table, and personal tragedy have equated to his ultimate success. In this episode he lays it all out there and leaves listeners with the truth about hustle and a personal challenge on how to improve their personal situation and experiences starting now.

Episode 153 - Re-Air - Aaron Hinde - Co-Founder and President of Life Aid Beverage Company
Midlife Male by Greg Scheinman
This is a re-air of episode 64 with Aaron Hinde, which was originally released April 19th, 2019. Aaron Hinde was a successful sports chiropractor before he and his business partner Orion Melehan co-founded the LIFEAID Beverage Company in 2011. As someone with a background in sports and fitness, Aaron’s intention was to offer consumers a range of vitamin-infused drinks that would naturally enhance their health and performance. Today, LIFEAID makes FITAID, FOCUSAID, IMMUNITYAID, PARTYAID, and GOLFERAID. The company also sponsors the CrossFit Games and the U.S Spartan Races. However, life hasn’t always been plain sailing for Aaron. He was bankrupted during the financial crash of 2009 and has had to work tirelessly to create a better future for himself and his family. Resourceful, driven, and resilient, Aaron believes in living for the present, planning for the long term, and learning from those who have gone before.

BI 372: From Bankrupt to a $60M Beverage Business (Ft Aaron Hinde)
The Scale Your Agency Podcast | Bright Ideas
Flowster Live Demo https://flowster.app/live-demo/ Episode Highlights [04:43] — Aaron introduces LIFEAID LIFEAID Beverage Co. started by making products for the CrossFit community. They aim to make beverages that are healthy and enjoyable. With 3,000 retail accounts, LifeAID earned $16 million revenue this year and continues to grow by 25-30% every year. [08:22] — Control your choices and mindset When the real estate market crashed, Aaron had to file for bankruptcy. His finances and ego both took a hit. Our perceptions form our thoughts, words, and actions. These directly affect our choices and the results that they create. By controlling his words and actions, Aaron found that he started to progress — slowly but surely. Overcoming adversity requires that you change your language. [13:54] — Breaking free from the victim cycle Being a victim means you are not in control. Discard the "cause and effect" mindset. Adopt the mindset that "cause plus reaction equals effect." We have the ability to choose. [17:06] — Ditching materialism When the house he had worked on for 17 years burned down, Aaron took this experience as an opportunity for growth. Don’t assign permanence to material things. Words, thoughts, and actions are what last forever and hold the most weight. [19:31] — Dealing with bankruptcy After going bankrupt, Aaron and his family lived in a 400-square foot RV. LIFEAID started as a side hustle with a fellow CrossFit enthusiast, Orion. Eventually, they decided to devote their time entirely to LIFEAID because they couldn't serve two masters if they wanted their business to succeed. Their finances were tight during this period. This experience served as a lesson in humility for Aaron. [23:36] — Choosing your target market and offering them something new Looking for tips that they can apply to their business, Aaron joined a high-level marketing group. There, Dean Jackson advised him to choose a single target market. By doing so, you can focus your time and resources on putting together a great product. Aaron emphasizes that you should bring something new to the market and not follow the usual path to compete in the market. [28:55] — How is LIFEAID different from other energy drinks? Rather than an energy drink, LIFEAID belongs to the healthy energy or performance energy space. Their ingredients consist of moderate hits of natural caffeine with green tea, nootropics Alpha-GPC, GABA, and B complex. It's cleaner and more sustainable approach that aims to stimulate the brain and nervous system. LIFEAID costs more, but it’s different and healthier than other energy drinks in the market. [31:26] — Creating their products Because of his background in nutrition, Aaron is well-versed in the right ingredients to use. Aaron researched the best ingredients to use and worked with a food scientist to make LIFEAID's first products. [38:12] — Hiring the right people Don't hire people out of desperation. If you do, it might cost you more in the long run. Instead, make sure that your prospects are a good cultural fit and can keep up with your company’s progress. [41:35] — Increasing business capabilities Focus on learning new things. Encourage holistic growth for the business. Pass on what you learn to the team so that you are all growing. Assess your goals. If you are not satisfied with the results, choose better. [44:41] — Developing the business process It's better to develop your business process sooner rather than later. Aaron hired a consultant who helped them set up a quarterly vision statement. Creating the systems and processes for your business is a constant work in progress that you revisit and upgrade over time.
