Nicholas's story

Specializing in goat whey protein isolate, Nicholas’ Austin-based business, RAW, targets athletes, providing them with a wide array of nutritional supplements.

“Goat whey is premium protein available for a diverse market,” Nicholas says.

Beginning three years ago as a personal trainer, Nicholas has first-hand experience finding the right nutritional supplements for bodybuilding and toning. Though he is new to the retail industry – he had his first sale in July 2013 – Nicholas, 31, has a lot of experience owning and running businesses, including selling alcoholic beverages and operating a pest-control service.

He sells the goat whey at traveling shows. His next selling and promotional trip will be in Phoenix from November 10-12, 2013. After his sister applied for a loan in El Paso, Nicholas learned about Accion Texas Inc.

Once he applied and was approved for a loan, he purchased inventory and began website construction. In the meantime, visit his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/rawnutritions2013#!/rawnutritions2013/
