A Thought From Our Co-Founder Pat…
I recently came across an article about a weight loss app, and it made me reflect on why we do things the way we do.
I understand why a company might focus on weight loss. It’s easier to market and easier to build a business, playing to people’s fears and their deepest insecurities. But, what’s good for business isn’t always what’s good for the consumer.
I’ll never forget one of the first calls we had with a Member, “I have to hand it to you, it takes a lot of balls to charge someone money and then start by telling them to drink water, but it works. Thank you.”
“It works” and “it sells” aren’t always the same thing. It’s why companies sell shortcuts, sell hype, sell the idea that their way is the only way. The biggest offense isn’t even that they are wasting people’s time and money, it’s that they are robbing people of their belief in themselves when things don’t go as planned.
Madefor provides a holistic approach to wellness, helping Members feel good while doing things that are good for them. Along the way, one discovers that there isn’t one way to live better, but that there is a better way to live. It doesn’t come from counting calories, it comes from the recognition that self-worth is found within—that you can simply count on yourself.
