Rick's Story

It was May 12, 2018, a day I’ll never forget. It was a beautiful spring day and I was excited to be back outside, hosting guests and cooking burgers on the grill after a long dreary Maryland winter. Suddenly, without warning, pain hit me like a gunshot to my back. The excruciating pain took my breath away and I could barely move.  After a trip to the ER, being issued what seemed like every test known to man, and a 24 hour stay in the hospital, I did what I always do … 


You see, the thing is, I just can’t help myself. Every time I see a problem, I also see an opportunity.  This was no different.  I had just suffered a life-threatening PE (pulmonary embolism) which shocked me to my core. Like you, I thought I would live forever.  Everything changed for me that day and I knew it was time to focus on my health and wellbeing.        

I’ve experienced a variety of opportunities and challenges in my life. I was a Marine Corps pilot, a General Manager of several Hyatt Regency Hotels, founded a successful apparel retail chain from scratch to over 110 stores (White House/Black Market), made a couple of movies, opened a hip Mexican style restaurant called R’s Americantina, partnered in a swim and surf wear company and formed a new apparel retail concept called Boho Nation.  BUT my health was never my focus or in my thoughts. I was an avid runner and I thought that was enough to keep me healthy. It was a start, but I have discovered there is so much more to it than just that. I’d like to share with you what I’ve learned and invite you to join me on this journey of wellness and good health.  

It is said that “the greatest wealth is health” … AMEN TO THAT!  You know as well as I do that we all tend to take our health for granted…while we still have it that is!  In our rush to succeed, taking care of ourselves is put on the back burner.  My PE and the ongoing worldwide pandemic laser focused me on taking action to stay healthy.  It doesn’t happen by accident…you have to DO something to stay healthy.  

It's time to stop worrying about your health and DO SOMETHING about it, do it now, do it today! Don’t wait until after you suffered a life threatening illness like I did.  Taking natural supplements like we offer at Rick’s Supps can help, but there is a lot more to it than that. Your diet, exercise, positive mental outlook, and adequate sleep are all important parts of the equation.

This isn’t just about me, although I’m trying like crazy to follow my own advice, it’s about YOU and what YOU can do to stay healthy.  I’m just leading the charge and I’ll be doing what I preach and sharing it with you. Starting off with Rick’s Supps.  I hope you join me on this journey as we provide you with many other tools and knowledge that will help you stay fit, healthy and relevant.  Please share YOUR story with me and others if you choose to do so.   

The time is NOW.  The time to take care of yourself is here.  Every day is precious.  Stop worrying and take action.  Remember: “WORRYING WON’T FIX ANYTHING”.   

Do something, do it now!
