How One Adventurous Entrepreneur Survived a Near-Fatal Car Accident to Create a Thriving Nutraceuticals Company

In 2014, while living and working in Dubai, Gagne was involved in a single-vehicle car wreck, instantly taking him from a professional skydiver with a budding career to a spinal injury survivor.

Everyone dies, but not everyone truly lives

Imagine being a professional athlete at the peak of your performance. You’re making waves in your sport as your name becomes more and more well-known to people both within and outside of your professional circle. Then, imagine, suddenly having your dreams of competing professionally effectively stolen from you by the actions of another human. One minute, you’re driving around your local town; the next, you wake up dizzy and disoriented in a hospital bed only to have doctors tell you that you will never be able to live an active lifestyle again.

This is exactly what happened to Matthew Gagne. In 2014, while living and working in Dubai, Gagne was involved in a single-vehicle car wreck, instantly taking him from a professional skydiver with a budding career to a spinal injury survivor. 

From Death’s Door To The Showroom Floor

“I suffered 10 fractures to my cervical and thoracic vertebrae as well as a full subluxation at the C5/C6 level,” says Gagne. “In other words, I broke my neck and was internally decapitated. I was struggling physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, as well as financially. The internal and external battles were real and the stress of not knowing was almost unbearable.”

With a sleek titanium cage installed in his neck, as well as bulging discs both above and below the fusion, pain and discomfort became a part of daily life for Gagne. That is, at least until he made the conscious choice to not allow that pain to control his life. As a seasoned skydiver, Gagne was no stranger to facing fear head-on, or to the trade-off of “risk vs. reward”. According to Gagne, it was this same mindset that not only helped him kickstart his recovery to overcome his injury, it also gave him the confidence to use the tools he used during that recovery to help others regain control of their lives.

CBD Helped Me Help Myself

In April of 2018, nearly four years after his life-threatening injury, Gagne founded Flock Goods: a nutritional enhancement brand that offers a line of CBD-based nutraceutical products that help nourish and strengthen the body’s physical building blocks. Each of Flock’s all-natural CBD products is designed to help those who suffer from chronic pain, anxiety, mental fog, and more to improve their mental health, physical fitness, nutrition, and lifestyle along the road to recovery. These aspects, along with that of the recovery journey itself, make up what Gagne refers to as the “Five Finger Framework” – the fundamental factors in which Flock Good’s core values and philosophy is rooted in.

“Pain is not only humbling – it’s the best teacher I’ve ever had,” says Gagne. “The layers of healing are complex, but with self-empathy and a strong, conscious effort, you can find true understanding, perspective, and patience.”

Indeed, healing is often a long and tumultuous process. Though the events we endure that cause our bodies and minds pain and trauma are inherently subjective at the individual level, the process of healing is not. As such, it should never be undertaken alone. Gagne stresses the importance of this, too, citing that the road to recovery since his life-changing accident would have been impossible to walk by himself.

Strong As FLOCK

In his founding of Flock Goods, Gagne has helped to create a community that perfectly matches the definition of the name. Chasing dreams, facing fears, and overcoming adversity in spite of our limitations are all terrifying to think about doing alone. Together, however, any obstacle truly can be overcome.

“I consider myself extremely lucky,” Gagne continues, “which is one of the reasons why I feel so compelled to give back to others. I didn’t get to where I am by myself. It started with a healthy mindset, was aided with proper nutrition, and I was lifted up by a community of others when I needed it the most.”

Nearly seven years following his horrific accident, Gagne is proud to say that no one “has any idea” about it until they see the scars for themselves.

Why Health And Wellness Coach Jason Nemes Helps Others Achieve Their Fitness And Financial Goals

Published

on

Life can sometimes knock a person flat on their back. At times it seems impossible to overcome some challenges, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any better days to look forward to. 

This is what Health and Fitness Coach Jason Nemes hopes to impart to the people who come to him for help. 

“I know first hand what it takes to build something from nothing, but a vision can help anyone that is willing to be coachable and go to work to do the same,” he said. 

Fueled By Passion 

Jason offers his services to people who are not just looking for results but serious about attaining them. This includes anyone wanting to gain muscle, cut fat, lose weight, live a healthy and active lifestyle, and even those who want to build a business. 

To help others realize their goals, Jason developed a very targeted message that talks about the principles that he believes drive human nature to achieve greatness. He then provides the practical steps to get his clients there. 

Since his message for success is universal, Jason doesn’t let distance keep him from spreading his message to people who need his guidance. His messages have been heard worldwide. These places include France, Belgium, South Africa, Canada, Trinidad and Tobago, Australia and more!

When he is speaking to audiences, Jason is known as THE “tattedprezzz” and he promotes the idea of personal health as the key to success. 

“My passion for fitness has always been my main focus. I took that passion and got involved with the industry and now I’m generating millions of dollars in sales by helping lots of people get fit and increase their bank accounts,” he said. 

Getting Into The Industry 

Despite his success as a health and wellness coach, Jason wasn’t always in the health industry. But thanks to a good friend of his, he realized the potential of the industry as well as his own. 

As a graduate of the University of  North Texas with a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree in Economics, Jason started in the corporate world selling digital media advertising. 

“I quickly realized that wasn’t for me. I ran into my buddy after college whom I consistently said no to in regards to an opportunity. This time, I was able to see his house and cars and was extremely inspired,” he shared. 

Seeing the numerous benefits, Jason decided to give it a shot. Now, Jason earns more monthly doing what he loves helping people than he did annually at his corporate job.

Author Daniel Kelly Releases New Book Optimized Under 35

Daniel then decided to undergo testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) so he could optimize his testosterone levels. After that, he saw improvements in his energy, libido, and mood. As a result, he started a coaching business focused predominantly on teaching men how to optimize their health without the need for medication.

Facing Challenges When He Started

“What most people don’t realize is that starting a business is easy. Maintaining it and making it profitable is the hard part,” Daniel said, recalling that he had two main challenges when he began.

The first challenge was having to deal with his self-doubt and lack of confidence in his ability to pull it off. The second was his lack of skill. He had quality service to offer that includes coaching and mentoring men to optimize their health through nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle change but he had no idea how to market himself. So how did Daniel overcome these challenges as well as grow and maintain his personal brand?

It was through the advice of a close friend of his who has a successful e-commerce business. To Daniel, he said, “Everything will change when you make your first dollar online.

Before he created his personal brand, Daniel quit his job in investment banking so the reality of having to rely on himself to make a living rattled him.

Investing in Himself to Grow His Brand

One day, after months of struggle and self-doubt, he made his first sale online.

“I thumped my fist on the table in jubilation and did a little victory dance in my co-working space. My colleagues looked at me with mouths wide open. Little did they know I had just had a breakthrough that was years in the making,” Daniel shared.

He Became a Bonafide Entrepreneur!

For the next months, Daniel invested heavily in coaching programs and masterminds to learn invaluable business skills to market himself online and become a better coach. Three years later, his coaching business thrived and he has been making a genuine difference in people’s lives which gives him a sense of fulfillment.

“Entrepreneurship and perseverance go hand in hand. If you want the former you must possess the latter,” he said.

Now, Daniel has coached hundreds of men to optimize their health, written multiple best-selling books, has even been featured on the pages of national newspapers such as The Guardian, The Sun, and the Staffordshire Sentinel.

But despite all that, Daniel is just getting started.
