The best way to predict the future is to create it.

Welcome back to Win the Day! If this is your first time here, we sit down with some of the world’s true changemakers to give you all the tips, tools, and strategies to win the day EVERY day.

The quote for this episode comes from management expert Peter Drucker and says: “The best way to predict the future is to create it.”

And our guest today did a hell of a job at creating a future that has now completely transformed the health industry. 

Kurt Seidensticker is Founder / CEO of collagen-based wellness company, Vital Proteins®. In addition to being a former NASA Aerospace Engineer, Kurt has more than two decades of experience as an entrepreneur and has successfully grown a number of digital-first companies.

As a passionate runner, Kurt had a huge lightbulb moment when knee discomfort threatened to put him on the sidelines. Kurt vowed to find a solution, and his research led him to understand the benefits of ingestible collagen that has been linked to healthy hair, skin, nails and joints.

Since 2013, Vital Proteins has been empowering others to find wellness, and recently enlisted Jennifer Aniston as its Chief Creative Officer.

Kurt’s passion for health and fitness – and his ambition to help others live fuller, more vibrant lives – became the core of the Vital Proteins brand, and ultimately, the company’s mission.

Long story short, we’re lucky to have him here!
