confident Preneur’ mission is to enable people to live healthier lives and to help prevent and fight chronic illnesses by empowering them to make smarter nutritional choices anywhere, anytime.
Benjamin Franklin said that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. Just imagine what a “pound of prevention” can do for you.
As a family member- a husband and a father- I regularly witness firsthand the need for practical guidance on healthy habits. While many of us understand the important impact of healthy behavior on our lives, I often find myself struggling to translate an overabundance of information on healthy eating and exercising habits into a practical and actionable plan. The realization that many of my family, friends, and extended community members are facing similar challenges, drove me to co-found confident Preneu . The corporate name is indicative of the commitment to deliver both “healthy” and “wealthy” (i.e. money saving) solutions.
We hope that you choose to use our services, and we invite you and your family to embark with confident Preneu on a journey to develop healthier habits that will serve as your “pound of prevention” and improve your health and happiness over time.
