115: Measuring Human Potential — How We Can Finally Measure the Performance of Your Brain, with Paul Sorbo
Manage episode 232883275 series 1459861
If I asked you to measure your inner badass, what would you say? Or, if I asked you what the objective data was that supported your badass status, would you have an answer?
My guest today is the Director of Sales of a company called WAVi — Paul Sorbo. The WAVi is an incredibly fascinating piece of technology that can actually measure one’s state of badass — because it actually measures brain activity. The WAVi is an EEG scanner which enables us to actually measure raw brain waves to get a sense — of not only the amplitude of connectivity — but also the types and density of waves that we are seeing within the brain. In short: what we can actually do with the WAVi scanner is measure how well your brain is working. And, to me, the most badass feature of any individual is what actually happens between their ears.
So, if you have an interest in how you can actually start to optimize your brain health; how you can clarify your ability to think and execute; and quite literally how we can measure your human potential with some really amazing, well-established, FDA-approved, extremely researched tools — then my friends, we have an episode for you.
Tune in to find out more about how you can optimize your brain performance!

More About Paul Sorbo
Paul Sorbo is a serial entrepreneur and adventurer. Paul started his entrepreneurial journey at the early age of 19, owning and operating nutritional stores, while also pursuing his degree in Biochemistry and Developmental Biology. Originally wanting to continue his education in Medicine, he realized that through nutrition and preventive healthcare, i.e. diet, nutrition and exercise, he could bring more good to the world by educating people rather than treating them.
He continued to grow his nutritional stores with his team and by focusing on the people rather than the money, they reached the top two locations in the country regarding total revenue. After ending his retail journey, Paul wanted to be able to reach more people and provide the tools to help them be successful with their nutrition while keeping up with their busy lifestyles. He eventually teamed up with his business partner and began growing Go Mix Technology, a revolutionary delivery method for supplements and nutrition on the go.
After losing his grandfather to dementia, Paul has always had a passion for living a healthy lifestyle and had the opportunity to be involved with a Boulder-based company WAVi, founded on the prevention of Dementia and Alzheimer’s. Serving as the Vice President of Sales for WAVi, they are on a mission to help provide easy and reliable information about brain performance ranging from age management to concussion information. His philosophy “we look at just about every other marker in the human body — heart, lungs, kidneys — but we don’t look at the thing that runs it all?” embodies what WAVi’s mission of bringing quick, fast, and affordable information of brain performance to everyone.
When Paul isn’t working, you will find him either on the ski slopes, working out, or spending time with family and friends. Paul continues to advocate for young entrepreneurs and businessmen and women. As someone who didn’t “fit the mold,” he advocates that if you’re passionate about something, work for it; the only one stopping you from your dreams is you.
