For more than a decade FreeLife has built upon its mission of serving others by providing an opportunity to realise improved well-being, wellness, and abundance in life. What began with Co-Founders Ray Faltinsky and Kevin Fournier has grown to one of the world’s leading providers of scientifically backed nutritional products including TAIslim and GoChi. Here are some of FreeLife’s most memorable moments:
Against all odds, Martha Faltinsky, Ray Faltinsky's mother, is healed of osteoporosis through the use of nutritional supplements defying modern medicine's prediction that she will eventually be wheelchair bound, and igniting a passion for nutrition and natural healing in FreeLife's future Co-Founder and CEO.
Ray meets Kevin Fournier and they develop a friendship that will lead to the launch of one of the most successful companies in the Direct Selling industry.
CEO & Co-Founder Ray Faltinsky travels across America meeting with corporate executives in the Direct Selling industry while writing his thesis on the subject. He graduates from Yale Law School with a passion for the industry. At the same time scientific research from major universities around the world begins to validate the remarkable health benefits of the goji berry. Since then, over 80 studies on the goji berry have already been published in prestigious journals, such as:
- Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine
- Nutrition Research
- Journal of Medicinal Food
- Journal of Chinese and Herbal Medicine
- Journal of Asian Natural Products Research
- British Journal of Nutrition
Ray and Kevin see their dreams materialize with the launch of FreeLife. By the end of the year, FreeLife becomes the youngest company ever featured on the cover of Success Magazine.
History is made when Inc. magazine announces that FreeLife ranks #296 on the Inc. 500 List as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in America.
