Episode Info

Episode Info:

John Shegerian is the co-founder and CEO of SOM Sleep, a company that makes an all natural, vegan, non-GMO, allergen free, non-habit forming beverage that is formulated to help individuals achieve better sleep. 

In this conversation, John and I discuss what led him to found Som Sleep as well as:

  • How he went from making his own sleep formula at home to teaming up with food scientists and later packers and distributors to help make this company a reality.
  • Statistics related to microsleep events and the average American, that will frankly, shock you.
  • The current competition in the sleep space and how he plans to grow and expand in the future.
  • The plant-based food space and how overall wellness products fit in. 

We spend a lot of time talking about how we can build a healthier, more sustainable food system on this podcast, but realistically, we can’t even get to that point if we don’t stop to consider our own well-being. What I like best about this interview is that it shows you don’t have to run yourself completely into the ground to be successful in the business world. In fact, if we all just got some sleep, not only would we all be more healthy, but in the end, much much more productive.
