On episode # 048 Stephen Sashen, co-founder of the footwear company Xero Shoes, reveals the benefits of walking barefoot and his „MOVEMENT movement” which has helped hundreds of thousands of people ‚Live Life Feet First‘. We learn about the fun and benefits of natural movement as well as the truth about entrepreneurship.

Steven Sashen is a serial entrepreneur who has never had a job, a former professional stand up comic and award-winning screenwriter, and a competitive sprinter – one of the fastest men over 55 in the country (maybe the fastest 55+ Jew in the world!). He and his wife, Lena Phoenix, co-founded the footwear company Xero Shoes.com, creating “a MOVEMENT movement” which has helped hundreds of thousands of people ‚Live Life Feet First‘ with happy, healthy, strong feet in addictively comfortable footwear. Steven and Lena also appeared on Shark Tank, where they turned down a $400,000 offer from Kevin O’Leary.
