We had the good fortune of connecting with Paul Huizenga and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Paul, what do you think makes you most happy? Why?
Investing in the best interest of others is the most rewarding aspect of what we do. Without a doubt when we find out our products have cured someone’s health or skincare conditions, it brings an overwhelming sense of satisfaction. I always shed a tear or two when an individual shares a success story. One story that I really got emotional was when we donated our oil to a child that had these sores on his face. He is three years old, and the irritation kept this child from sleeping at night, and was really painful. When I visited my coffee spot three days later, Samantha showed me the pictures of this child restored to perfection. It is miracles like these that make me happy. The products were a free gift, and the reward was priceless to me. Tears of joy flowed freely

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Zi Dobre is a skincare & wellness brand that creates all natural products derived from grapes. We are thrilled with all the success stories from our clients. The testimonials include not only beneficial physical transformations but renewed sense of confidence. We arrived at this point by being patient and flexible, especially in this turbulent environment. Our journey has been filled with rejection, disappointment, and doubt. We remained steadfast, and with each obstacle we polished our approach. Brands that survive must adapt and overcome every step of the way. We overcame the challenges at hand by constantly looking for paths to improve our message and presentation. Some of the lessons included the understanding that developing trust takes time. The art of engagement was also crucial. Little by little we found ways to reach out, and spread the word and the benefits of our products. Getting reviews by giving away products and refusing to pay influencers was key. The world should know we are believe in the benefits of our products and we plan on educating everyone willing to listen about the benefits of all natural products and diet.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Miami is our town. From my place in Miami Springs we would start the day off by getting some pastries and cafe cubano from the local cafeteria. It’s always good to let the caffeine stimulate the mind before making any plans for the day. In Miami it’s better to go with the flow. If I did have to come up with a tentative itinerary, this is what I would propose: #1. Park off 20th Street and Biscayne and talk a walk down the shore line and cross the Venetian Bridge. We would end up at the Standard and Hotel Crash. My friend Fernando makes the best passion fruit mojitos. We could kick back, jump in the pool, and grab dinner at the Lido as the sun retires for the day below the horizon. #2. In a perfect world day two would be spent on the boat cruising the inter coastal winding up at the sandbar drinking the perfect amount of adult beverages. #3. After relaxing in the morning cooking some eggs and getting our coffee fix, we could head up to Ft Lauderdale. Possibly bringing the beach essentials to be comfortable and to enjoy the natural world for a bit. If the day goes just right we would end up at Coconuts to grab a plate of fish. #4. We would make a reservation for my favorite motel in Islamorada Breezy Palms. Possible find someone with a boat and explore the area for the next few days. #5. Our last few days we would travel South to Key West and stay at a B&B near Duval and pretend to be pirates and drink rum til last call.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
We have to recognize James Allen. He provided such a tremendous contribution getting our brand off the ground. jacobaa7@gmail.com
