Entrepreneur Yanni Hufnagel founded the flavoured lemon water company Lemon Perfect in 2017 and is responsible for creating the company’s unique, high-energy work environment. Hufnagel, who has an intrinsically driven mindset, takes the helm with a fiery optimism that propels him through obstacles. He actively seeks out colleagues who share this unbridled enthusiasm so that he may be surrounded by individuals who fuel his drive. He is aware that the quality of a startup’s hiring is tied to the tone established by the founder.
No one could have predicted where Yanni Hufnagel’s career would go. He spent ten years as a college basketball coach for the California Golden Bears, the Vanderbilt Commodores, and the Harvard Crimson before quitting in 2017 to concentrate on the introduction of Lemon Perfect. In his last year as a coach at the University of Nevada, Reno, he went on a recruiting tour and stopped in a sports nutrition store in a strip mall. The shop could be found smack dab in the shopping centre.
One of the first things Yanni Hufnagel did while working on creating his product was, as could be expected, look into how he might outdo his competitors. Bai water’s coffee berry extract is an antioxidant, and this information grabbed his interest. Free radicals are unstable molecules that may damage cells, and antioxidants neutralize them. Free radicals are produced when the body metabolizes food or is exposed to environmental pollutants. Free radicals are neutralized and cleaned up by antioxidants.
Hufnagel, a former NBA coach, saw firsthand the value of antioxidants and other fast-acting vitamins and minerals for his players. However, nearly all the sports drinks on the market included unhealthy levels of high fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners like aspartame and sucralose. Hufnagel decided to develop a sports drink free of these components. The best option would be to find a technique to improve the food’s nutritional value without sacrificing its flavour.
