We’re speaking with Army Veteran, Ian Sparks, who along with his brother created Battle Bars – a protein bar created for those who accept nothing less than victory, from the battle field to the gym. Battle Bars are created with handcrafted ingredients, an amazing taste, texture and no artificial sweeteners to help you have the energy to face all of life’s challenges. Ian speaks in depth about his career in the Army and his transitions from active duty to the Army Reserves. He speaks about how a tough deployment was the inspiration behind Battle Bars and how this helped spark his start to entrepreneurship.
“Don’t get disheartened. [Success] will come if you put the time into it.” – Ian Sparks
