About the Episode:
In today’s episode, we’re talking to Andrew Kozlovski, a college senior at The University of Southern California and entrepreneur behind the company, Brainz Power about how to start a business in college (amongst many other things). Andrew’s company produces a cognitive enhancement supplement known as nootropics.
However, Andrew’s supplement is comprised of 100% FDA approved ingredients and has shown to help his customers with enhancing memory, focus, and overall brain health—without the use of caffeine, which gives you all the benefits of neural stimulation without the jitters and subsequent afternoon crash.
Andrew got started on creating Brainz Power back when he began his college career… when he noticed how many of his fellow students were taking—and arguably abusing—the prescription drug Adderall.
He started researching healthier, non-addictive alternatives, and eventually partners with the FDA-approved lab that he still uses today to produce a proprietary mixture of all natural ingredients. After just 6 weeks of selling the supplement when his first shipment arrived, Andrew started bringing in over $1,000 a day.
Since then, he’s grown an Instagram following of more than 100,000 people for his brand (@Brainzpower), more than 86,000 followers for his personal account (@AndrewtheKoz), and he plans on expanding through major distributors when he graduates college in the spring.
This interview is a free master-class in how to start a business in college—enjoy!
