How do you “break into” the supplement industry? What experience and educational background do you need? In this vid I cover the truth behind how different people get into the supplement industry.
Last week I put up a study showing more young girls are going into puberty at ever younger ages. The study found obesity was the number #1 factor.

In this report, I cover the essential issues of why some are successful as fitness models while others are not! The successful fitness model can be found on the cover of magazines, working trade shows, or as a paid representative for sports and supplement companies, to name a few ways fitness models get to combine their love of fitness with their job. Many people attempt to “break in” to the fitness model business but don’t know where to start. Just having a great body does not guarantee success.

About the guest:
Mark Divine is from upstate New York and did his formal undergraduate education at Colgate University. His years at Colgate University were focused on the athletic endeavors of competitive swimming, rowing and triathlon racing. After graduation Mark embarked upon his professional career as a CPA with Coopers & Lybrand in New York City. Clients included luminous and no-longer existent financial firms such as Solomon Brothers and Paine Weber.
Four years later, with an MBA from NYU Stern School of Business and a CPA in his briefcase, he left behind the suit to pursue his inner vision to become a Navy SEAL officer. He was 26 when he graduated as honor-man (#1 ranked trainee) of his SEAL BUD/s class number 170. Mark was fortunate to serve with many great men and women on active duty for nine years and in the SEAL reserves for eleven – retiring at the rank of Commander in 2011.
