#062: Sean Lake - Co-Founder of BUBS Naturals, Professional Athlete, Marketing Executive

Sean Lake and Glen Doherty grew up best friends, teammates and roommates as they chased their childhood dreams of adventure. Glen became a Navy SEAL. Sean became a professional athlete and marketing executive at Burton Snowboards and DC Shoes. 


In 2012, Glen lost his life in Libya defending American interests and freedom. To honor Glen, Sean helped launch the Glen Daugherty Memorial Foundation. Sean co-founded BUBS Naturals as a tribute to his best friend, Glen "BUB" Doherty, who was heroically killed in Benghazi. They produce supplements for athletes, the Boston Red Sox, and just about anyone who has pain in their body and joints.


Host Fran Racioppi and Sean Lake hop into the back of the Land Rover Ambulance at Sandlot Jax to talk about Glen, their life together as extreme athletes, the importance of collagen protein and MCT Oil, and what it means to truly live in the service of others. Take a listen, then try Sean's morning routine for a clear mind, from meditation to lemon water.
