Get to Know Jeff: Finance Manager for Nutracelle

Hey Nutrafam!

I have a special treat for you today! 

Our feature guest on the blog is our very own Jeff.  If you've ever had your referral bonuses paid out, you've probably communicated with him (though the list of things he handles is much, much longer than that!).  Jeff is our finance manager here at Nutracelle, and we're so lucky to have him.  Not only is he passionate about his job, numbers, and finding the best way for us to save money (so we can spend it on you!), but he's also passionate about his Nutracelle.  

I decided to do this blog a little differently, so we've set it up as an interview! Take a look and let us know what you think!

(This is Jeff and I! Aren't we adorable?!)

Would you say you were a confident person growing up?

Growing up I was a very happy child. I had everything I wanted, which was lots of video games! I would go home and just play some Mario or Zelda. My family is a very close knit family; my grandmother lives next door and I'd spend many nights over there watching tv together. If I wasn't there, you'd find me talking to my mom about Star Trek (yes I am a proud Trekkie ha-ha). I was the definition of a mommy's boy. It wasn't until I was a young adult that I started to lose confidence.

At what point did you start to realize your confidence was wavering? 

Being underweight especially through Grade 9 to Grade 12 was very difficult, because when I was growing up if you were a skinny boy who wasn't into sports you weren't popular. I was more into my video games and books and studying. I was one of those kids that loved school but hating going to school because I was teased so much. Thinking back, Grade 9 is my earliest memory of where I lost a lot of my confidence as a kid.


(This is Jeff before Nutracelle!)

I happened to be one of the tallest boys in school, being 6 ft 1 and only weighing 125 pounds. I was that tall lanky boy with acne who was beyond awkward and introverted. I thankfully had a close circle of friends that I stuck to like glue to help me through those years.

When you began working for Nutracelle, did you have any previous knowledge of protein/fiber and their benefits on both your gut flora and your body?

When I first starting working at Nutracelle I was going in to begin my first accounting job after graduating. I didn't know anything about the importance of a healthy gut flora, or how beneficial protein was for your body. I went in completely clueless! Little did I know how much Nutracelle was going to help me with my self-esteem.

What was your honest opinion the first time you tasted Nutracelle?

That very first time I tasted Nutracelle I was not expecting how yummy, how filling it would be or how good it would smell! You hear those horror stories about how gross protein shakes can be, where you have to plug your nose and swallow it quickly. NOT NUTRACELLE! It blew my mind! It tasted SO good, and it was incredibly smooth! I have been using Nutracelle now for almost 2.5 years and I still can't get over how many different ways you can use your product.

How has Nutracelle benefited you?

At first I didn't think Nutracelle could do anything for me. When I was asked at first what Nutracelle was, my very narrow definition was it could help you lose weight. I personally didn't need to lose weight - I was too skinny as it was. So why would I want to use this product? Well, little did I know that if I changed up a few things and started eating differently, Nutracelle would help me reach a healthier weight and just make me feel better about myself!


(This is Jeff AFTER Nutracelle!)

Would you say you're more confident now?

I will always be an introvert and want to avoid people as much as possible ha-ha , but has Nutracelle helped me gain confidence? The answer is 100% YES! I am not ashamed of my body anymore. I am not afraid of summer where I have to show my arms. That was one of the things I hated about summer - wearing a t-shirts and shorts. I was so self-conscious of my small wrists, my small legs and my chest area. I am not ashamed of those parts of my body now because this is the only body I will ever have and with Nutracelle I have learned to love every inch of myself!


(Looking good & feeling good! Loving my new confidence - Jeff)

What's your favourite thing about your job?

My favourite thing about my job is seeing the success stories from our customers. I love seeing everyone's before and after photos or hearing about someone's win for that day because it makes me proud to be a part of a company that is doing good in the world.

Now that we've gotten the feel-y stuff out of the way, tell us your absolute favourite shake!

My favourite shake is 1 scoop Vanilla Cream, 1 Scoop Coffee Mocha added to heavy cream, water and ice. I have this almost daily, and if I'm lucky -- my partner Josh will make it for me before I head to work!

Finally, what's your favourite Nutracelle recipe?

Oh this is a hard one, I love so many of them! I'm going to have to go with our Zucchini Noodles recipe combined with our Meaty Pasta Sauce recipe! I can't imagine ever going back to plain 'ol spaghetti. Nutracelle's healthier version not only tastes better, but it keeps me full for way longer thanks to our Natural Nutralean.

Stay tuned for our next feature blog: Michelle's continued success!

A big thank you to Jeff for sharing his story and introducing us to his struggles of being under-weight. His story is one of many; proof that Nutracelle's versatility extends much further than just the ability to shake, bake, or blend.  We're all so proud to be a part of a company that's changing lives and helping people build confidence.

Thanks for reading everyone,
Tracy & Jeff
