Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that sparked the beginning of this initiative.

We have been in self development for 9 years working on the mind specifically. In 2015 started to drink wheat grass juice to find balance in body, mind and soul and raise our personal vibration. It worked so well that we started a prototype to make this freely available for all.
