From the interview with CANVAS REBEL.
We recently connected with Brian Rose and have shared our conversation below.
Brian, looking forward to hearing all of your stories today. We’d love to hear the backstory of how you established your own practice.
Neural enhancement changed my life.
I know firsthand what it’s like to live a fast-paced, high-stress life. I spent twenty years as a Stockbroker and Military Police Officer, serving the country overseas and at the Atlanta Summer Olympics. For years, I felt over-stimulated, unfocused, and completely depleted of energy. I had lost my vitality and sense of self-care in pursuit of success. Unknowingly to me, my body and mind were trying to tell me that enough was enough.
Despite the warning signs my body was giving me, I didn’t want to give up my ambitions. At this point in my life, I knew there had to be a way for me to work hard, maintain my health, and gain success, all at the same time. This revelation led me on a journey that revealed to me how I could lead a life full of vitality and increased longevity, without giving up my dreams.
My search for increased vitality led me to Nootropics. With its benefits for cognition and brain function, Nootropics helped enhance my ability to absorb and retain material, which played a massive role in helping me achieve a goal that seemed unreachable in the past: passing the Series 9 and 10 Brokerage exams. At this moment, I knew I was only beginning to explore the world of neural enhancement.
As a Biohacker, I completely submerged myself in neural enhancement, receiving training in a Neuro Performance Program with Vitanya Brain Performance, and completing Vipassana, a 10-day Silent Meditation Retreat. These experiences trained my brain to change its frequency from Alpha to Beta and taught me how to move energy within my body to benefit my mind.
Equipped with new energy and a fully powered mind, I created a company that could help others begin their neural enhancement journey to realize their biggest dreams. Built on the foundation of a passion for personal wellness and success, KIYA Longevity was born.
Great, appreciate you sharing that with us. Before we ask you to share more of your insights, can you take a moment to introduce yourself and how you got to where you are today to our readers
I never dreamed that I would one day be the CEO of a telehealth company, heading up a team of world-class naturopathic and integrative medicine specialists who help people change their health and their lives on a daily basis.
In fact, I spent 20 years living a fast-paced, high-stress life as a Stockbroker and Military Police Officer, serving our country overseas and at the Atlanta Summer Olympics. Yet, like most of us burning the candle at both ends, I found myself overstimulated, completely unfocused, and just plain exhausted.
And despite the fact that my goal had always been to hit the next level in my career and pass the Series 9 and 10 Brokerage exams, my body and mind were telling me that enough was enough.
I completely submerged myself in Biohacking, receiving training in a Neuro Performance Program with Vitanya Brain Performance, and completing Vipassana, a 10-day Silent Meditation retreat. These experiences helped me train my brain and taught me how to move energy within my body to benefit my mind.
And that is when my dreams not only came together, but my world and my mission changed for good. I easily passed those Series 9 and 10 Exams that had once seemed out of reach. Even more importantly, I felt more vital, connected, and in control of my health and life than ever before.
Yet, as amazing as I felt, with new energy and a fully powered mind, I knew without a doubt that far too many people were still living with the same health problems and mental exhaustion I had suffered. That’s when KIYA Longevity was born…
Can you talk to us about your experience with buying businesses?
Well, I’ve dealt with insomnia ever since I was in the Army working various shifts as a Military Police officer, and once I got out of the military the difficulty sleeping continued so I tried everything. One day I came up with the idea to create sublingual products to deliver active ingredients rapidly into the bloodstream to fall asleep faster.
The first product I created was Limitless Sleep which combined Melatonin, Gaba, and L Serine
Why this was important:
A good night’s sleep promotes healthy brain function, protects your mental and physical health, and plays a vital role in your overall well-being. As essential as quality sleep is in our lives, we know how hard it can be to fall asleep when you are stressed, in pain, or inhibited by a chronic health condition.
The sublingual form allows for a powerful yet soothing formula to be absorbed directly into your bloodstream for rapid results, making it easy to finally get the revitalizing sleep you deserve.
Basically, we’re taking the science and technology of the Pharmaceutical Industry and applying it to the supplement industry to give people a better solution.
How did you put together the initial capital you needed to start?
Well my story continues, I’ve been through several startup accelerators both in Colorado and Arizona where I learned to pitch my startup idea to Angel investors. Up until now, I have always worked full-time and funded my startup with my own funds because I feel more comfortable pitching my company once all our services are in revenue this way it will maximize the value of our company. Who knows it maybe be possible to generate enough revenue to be successful without outside investment but time will tell.
A book recommendation is Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
Something I wanted to pass on is that creating a startup is more like a marathon than a sprint because you have to build a foundation and gain momentum. You really have to look at each milestone as a windfall then drive on until you get a big break or you latch onto what works to gain customers then you’re off and running.
