My New Gig?

Thanks for the hundreds and hundreds of supportive and encouraging emails, phone calls, and text messages over these past few weeks. For those who are not aware, I was relieved of all duties as Chief Science Officer at LifeVantage on June 1 – with July 1 as my last official day of employment.

Many people have asked why I left LifeVantage after only about 18 months? The company has instructed me to not talk about the details of my “resignation” or the fact that my office was already cleaned out when I returned from speaking at a scientific conference in the Philippines. Suffice to say that I (obviously) had a difference of opinion about certain things with the new CEO and the Board of Directors.

I enjoyed my time with LifeVantage – particularly working with a stellar R&D and Marketing team and getting to know so many great Distributors by helping them build their businesses around the world. Sadly, I believe that the only remaining member of the R&D team is Dr. Nathalie Chevreau (a good friend and good scientist) – and I really wish her the best success in keeping LifeVantage products on the right track. There are a lot of great folks involved with LifeVantage, and I honestly wish them a huge amount of success in getting the company back to a growth trajectory.

So, what’s next for me?

I’ll be starting a new wellness company called EQQIL that will be dedicated to “Empowering Your Best You” (so you can develop and achieve your best future self). The name EQQIL is a play on words – combining the Western scientific concept of “biochemical balance” (equilibrium) with the Eastern philosophical concept of “balanced life force” (Qi in traditional Chinese medicine, or “vigor” in Western psychology research). This concept (equilibrium/Qi/vigor) is based on the understanding that “biochemistry drives our behavior” – which is something that I’ve written several books about, lectured about at scientific conferences around the world, and dedicated more than a decade of my work to understanding – and it will be a concept at the very heart of everything that we do at EQQIL.

Our mission at EQQIL will be to empower people to “Look, Feel & Perform their Best” by balancing biochemistry and restoring vigor naturally. Our products will be distributed through a variety of direct-to-consumer (but non-MLM) channels, including health/wellness/medical clinics, health coaches, and online. We plan to develop a range of products, programs, and people by asking, “What are you doing today to improve yourself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually?”

The company is already fully funded (actually over-subscribed, a good problem to have) and we have several formulas already in pilot evaluations (human trials, no animal or test tube studies). Our first formulas (to help you feel your best) should be ready to launch in the Fall – just in time for back to school and ahead of the stressful Holiday season.

Thanks again for all the positive vibes that have been sent my way over the last month – good Karma for sure!

Please stay tuned to this blog – and to the social media feeds below – for future updates.

All best,

Shawn

Nrf2 & Brain Webinar

Last night (May 20, 2015) I held a LIVE webinar about the importance of Nrf2 Activation for brain health and performance. It lasted a little over an hour and you can view the webinar below.

I’ve also written a brochure on the topic that you can view as a PDF (click on the link below) or order in printed form – and I’ve written entire books about using lifestyle interventions to improve how we feel in terms of mood, energy, and focus.

NRF2 Brain Brochure

Please tune in to the webinar to hear how Nrf2 Activation in the brain can improve mental focus, stress resilience, physical energy, mood, and overall mental function.

The webinar will also be posted at: http://www.nrf2science.com/live/

Chicago – May 13 2015

Earlier tonight, I had the great pleasure of speaking to a fantastic group of people in Chicago at Loyola University.

We talked about cellular stress, how natural Nrf2 activation can alleviate cellular stress and improve health, and how all of that can help people to feel – look – and perform at their best.

My slides and audio from the presentation are posted below – enjoy!
