In this episode, host Pete Moore sits down with Tessa Arnold, a former banker turned wellness entrepreneur, HALO evangelist, and Co-Founder of Snapback Energy. She shares her journey from a 12-year career in commercial banking into the entrepreneurial space. She dives deep into the challenges and triumphs of transitioning industries, the importance of balance in life, and her passion for Ayurvedic health coaching. Tessa discusses the development of her patented supplement formula, her dedication to giving back to veterans, and the insights she's gained on living a fulfilling life while trying to balance the demands of running a new business. 

On building out the company, Arnold states, "I think my background in banking helped because I was a project manager. I knew how to do things methodically and figure out who I needed to reach out to and bring in . . . So working with my team, bringing in a food scientist, going through a ton of variations and developing our formula to what it is today was an incredible learning process. I couldn't have done it without them. . . We worked to push through and get the patent, which took us 3 tries to get!"
