Episode 108 | Cliff Original

Summary:

Jared Friesner is the CEO and founder of Cliff Original – a hair, beard, and skincare company built around creating products from all-natural ingredients. The Cliff Original team believes that being ​healthy is more than just the food we eat or the miles we run or the sleep we get. It’s also what we put on our skin and in our hair and how that’s absorbed into our system.
