This episode’s guests

Heather and Sean Lake are an adventure-seeking, health minded couple living in Southern California with their two young children (ages 2 and 4). Between their hunger for exercise and thirst for new experiences…this couple is always on the go!

Sean Lake is the BUBS Naturals co-founder and credits his wife, Heather, for urging him to give collagen a try in the first place. He still remembers the day she held up some collagen, rattled off some of the benefits and then looked at him and said, “You’re not getting any younger,” so Sean gave it a try. Needless to say, he was hooked right away on the benefits. 

Sean leaned on his experience as a former professional athlete, skilled marketing director and entrepreneurial spirit to create BUBS Naturals along with business partner TJ Ferrara , the purest form of collagen protein on the market.  The spark for the business came as a combination of FEELING GREAT with quality product and DOING GOOD by donating 10% of all profits to charity. That charity is the Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation in memory of his lifelong friend, Glen “BUB” Doherty, a Navy SEAL heroically killed in Benghazi during the 9/11 terrorist attacks (if you’ve seen the movie 13 Hours then you know part of Glen’s amazing story). 

She and Sean enjoy pushing their bodies and minds in effort to grow continuously and live by the BUBS’ motto: Die young, as late as possible.
