From Obese to Olympian: The Entrepreneur Pledging His Earnings to Tokenholders

From Obese to Olympian: The Entrepreneur Pledging His Earnings to Tokenholders
Alan Frei Interview

The Defire podcast welcomes Alan Frei, a Swiss entrepreneur successful in selling sex toys online. Alan shares his belief in creating interesting stories versus convincing people about his business ideas. He discussed his journey from multiple start-up failures to eventually finding success with his online sex toy business, Amorana. Alan has since stepped away from that venture and is now pursuing an Olympic dream in curling for the Philippines. His entrepreneurial spirit has led him to tokenize his new venture, the Alan Frei company, under Swiss law, creating a unique investment opportunity in his future earnings. Alongside becoming an Olympic curler, Alan is focusing on building stories and creating products with his new venture as he transitions from a traditional business model to a more content-creation and community-focused approach.
