The Heart of a Man: Pushing the Bounds of Love, Business and Health.Friday, October 14, 2016 Jen Gordon
Constantin Bisanz is a pretty extraordinary guy. Although, I am sure he wouldn’t agree. I have a feeling that he thinks of himself as just an ordinary guy, pushing himself to experience the most out of life. He has a humble demeanor and a great, Austrian accent that exudes warmth. He is both cordial and kind.
So who is this Constantin guy that I speak of? Well, along with being a world record breaking kite-surfer, a life-long entrepreneur building his fifth successful business, he is a man passionate about contributing to the quality of people’s lives.
Back in 2007 his company Brands4Friends, a fashion e-commerce site that grew more than ten million members, across three countries, in three years, sold to eBay for more than 200 Million dollars. He was named, “Entrepreneur of The Year” by Harvard Business School and named “Exit Champion” for closing Germany’s largest Internet exit transaction … And the list of accomplishments goes on and on.
More recently, however, his entrepreneurial spirit lead him down a path more near-and-dear to his heart. In January 2014, he founded ALOHA, with a mission to help people live healthier, happier lives. He and his team create real food products, made from only the simplest, sustainably-sourced ingredients that offer a holistic approach to a balanced lifestyle.
“Since 18 –years old I began to realize that even if I live to 100, that it isn’t a very long time. That I need to create goals for myself that push beyond my comfort zone. I set goals for the year, in smaller increments like until my next birthday, I set fitness goals, etc. to continue to give more of myself and to the lives of others.
Tapping into my natural abilities to bring people together has then helped support these goals …”
Whether bringing people together, for kite surfing events, the global “CEO Dinner Series”, or building companies centered on creating health and wellness, Constantin is making sure that the span of his life is packed with the joy of creating new experiences.
Just like Constantin, whatever creative endeavors you feel are pulling at your heart, make the most of your life by pushing the bounds of what you currently think is possible.
Here are some things to keep in mind:
- Think big and get out of your comfort zone - try new things and be prepared with the right planning and tools to accomplish your goals.
- Set both short and long-term goals and do not believe in limitation.
- Surround yourself with people that believe in you and support your aspirations.
- Learn from others who have gone before you.
- Be your most authentic self. Be comfortable with who you are.
