When Michael step outside of working for distributors and into working with manufacturers he first worked directly with Fresh Samantha Juices and Smoothies.

Michael was responsible for introducing their product line of fresh juices and smoothies into the New York Metro market. Within three years, he had increased regional sales in the market from zero sales to over $20 million a year.

After establishing the New York Metro market, he and the Fresh Samantha team traveled throughout the eastern seaboard, opening up additional markets along the way. Michael later became a National Sales Manager and opening Barnes and Noble college bookstores and cafés, Costco and more national key accounts.

Living Intentions was similar to Brads Raw Foods in many ways, a private raw food company, owned and operated its own manufacturing facility and Living Intentions primarily used the UPS direct delivery system as its means for distribution.
