In this series titled Member Showcase, we publish interviews of members of The oracles. This interview is with Harlan Kilstein, founder of Completely Keto and the Speed Keto diet. It has been condensed by oracles.
Who are you?
Harlan Kilstein: I hold a PhD in Education, but I left teaching to become a business man and a marketing expert. I've struggled with weight all my life. A few years ago, a doctor diagnosed me with a metabolic syndrome, or syndrome X, and even told me that I could never lose weight. In my quest to get better, I discovered the keto diet and it transformed my life. As a result, I founded the Facebook group and the Completely Keto lifestyle site, as well as the Speed Keto program, which help others lose weight and get better.
How are you more skilled than most people in the world?
Harlan Kilstein: My superhero talent simplifies things for others. Keto can be a very complex diet that requires you to calculate your macros: the amount of carbohydrate, protein and fat you absorb each day. Some people have the feeling of needing a doctorate in math to understand it! The Speed Keto program that I developed eliminates the calculations and makes the scheme less intimidating.
What are you passionate about most in your business right now?
Harlan Kilstein: It's easy: changing people's lives for the better. We have clients who have lost more than 80 pounds by participating in the program. People have abandoned their diabetes medications, knocked out their doctors and impressed their friends and family. For example, a woman just published on Facebook how nice it was to wear smaller jeans and that her son noticed that she had lost weight. Every day we hear dozens and dozens of stories of this kind in the world.
What did you learn from your favorite mentor?
Harlan Kilstein: In fact, I am writing a book about my favorite mentor, titled "The Wizard of the Island of San Juan". He was a therapist named Dave Dobson. I have spent years going to his home, on the island of San Juan, off the coast of Washington State, to study with him. He especially taught me to help people make changes that they would otherwise think impossible.
What advice would you give to your young man?
Harlan Kilstein: Dark. Dark. Dark. You can do a lot more than ever. You can change the lives of thousands of people.
How do you define great leadership?
Harlan Kilstein: Excellent leadership inspires people to excel. Good leaders do not think to know more than everyone else. They listen to the members of their team and give individuals the opportunity to grow.
How do you rate a good business partner or a good deal?
Harlan Kilstein: I would do a lot of research and find out what were the ultimate goals of the person. If someone wanted to buy my business, for example, but I could say that his ultimate goal was to make money, I would not engage with it because, for me, it was Was acting to help people.
How do you prevent burnout?
Harlan Kilstein: My secret weapon against burnout is meditation. This has taught me patience and when to say, "You know what? I have spent far too much time on the computer today. It is time to end our activities and focus on life. "
What are you working on right now?
Harlan Kilstein: After much research and testing, we publish a range of keto nutrition bars called Completely Keto. They are absolutely delicious and I predict they will sell as soon as they go on sale. We are also about to launch keto shakes and bread, so it will be a busy time in the next few months.
What are the two things on your bucket list?
Harlan Kilstein: The number one is to go fishing for salmon in Alaska. It has been on my list for a long time. Number two would be to have a vacation home where my family and I could escape, turn off the computers and just relax. I have four children, four stepchildren and four grandchildren, so we would need quite a large place. Somewhere near a lake or the ocean would be ideal because the water is so soothing.
