[01:07] – Kenneth is gastroenterologist and has been working in the Dallas area for 15 years
[01:14] – He became interested in IBS because of his 10 years of clinical research
[01:31] – He is married and has two children
[01:47] – Kenneth has a family of tennis players
[02:19] – Share something we don’t know about your area of expertise that as Entrepreneurs, we probably should: IBS is a “trashcan” term and its market is a $30B/year market
[02:54] – There’s been a paradigm shift in the IBS market
[03:13] – A lot of symptoms are caused by bacterial overgrowth that creates a leaky gut—the root of all inflammation or chronic disease
[03:57] – All health begins and ends with the gut
[05:19] – Worst Entrepreneurial Moment: Kenneth realized treating the gut can be done naturally. He needed funds to start his company so he hosted a dinner with all his potential investors. The problem was all his guests were competitors and were not OK with being in the same room. The party took a turn for the worse, Kenneth couldn’t keep his cool, and he ended up losing the whole room of “guaranteed” investors
[08:17] – He didn’t show that he had it under control
[08:56] – Kenneth learned that staying calm can be contagious
[11:43] – Always believe that you are on the top of your pyramid
[12:18] – Entrepreneurial AH-HA Moment: Kenneth was engaged in his own research while running a clinical practice. One scientist told Kenneth that those struggling with constipation will never be cured by their medicine because of the methane. Kenneth’s research manager told him that her previous work experience with a senator involved decreasing methane production at cattle farms because of the greenhouse effect. Simply put, the research manager had all the data for methane that he needed
[14:35] – Always be open to anything and anybody!
[15:26] – What is the one thing you are most FIRED up about today? “I’m most fired up because after that ah-ha moment, ultimately, we have a company here and a lot of people are depending on me”
[18:44] – The Lightning Round
- What was holding you back from becoming an entrepreneur? – “People in the industry were either telling me it’s an impossible thing to do or that it had already been done and it’s a saturated market”
- What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? – “When you give someone 5 minutes of uninterrupted complete attention, it makes them feel like they have 20 minutes with you. Be fully present with people”
- If you could recommend one book to our listeners, what would it be and why? – Delivering Happiness – “I read that book and as I built my team I make every one of them read it”
[25:09] – “We are all eating for a hundred trillion”
[25:46] – “What is the point of success and wealth if you’re not healthy?”
