Dr. Young Wang | Founder of Upswing
Throughout my life, I have always been a victim of hangovers, they always stopped me from being productive in the morning and enjoy my hobbies. I can’t imagine how productive I could be if hangovers didn’t exist.
1.HOW’D YOU GET STARTED?
Throughout my life, I have always been a victim of hangovers, they always stopped me from being productive in the morning and enjoy my hobbies. I can’t imagine how productive I could be if hangovers didn’t exist. Whenever I suffered from a hangover, the first thing I’d do would be search on Google for a solution, I tried several methods such as drinking pickles juice or sport drinks, however none of those methods ever worked for me.
That’s when I decided to take matters in my own hands and create a solution. I first started looking into nutrition and dietetics. After months of research, I found out that there were natural scientific proven compounds that alleviate the effects of hangovers. That’s when I started working with a UK-based team of experts in the field of pharmacology and nutrition.
After weeks of research, testing (and drinking) we developed our finished product: Upswing. Aimed at people with active lifestyles who care about health, wellbeing, sustainable ingredients, and proven results. Upswing is the new standard hangover supplementation.
2.WHAT IS YOUR VISION FOR SOCIETY?
Ever since I started Upswing, I’ve been picturing a world without hangovers. Imagine this, what if we had the chance to reuse wasted hangover time on spending time with our beloved ones or even better on improving ourselves, to not even mention our work. How wonderful would it be?
You asked me about my vision, well, let me tell you, our purpose lies in pushing mankind forward and improving our society by helping people to be more productive and by sharing our values.
3.HOW DO YOU DEFINE SUCCESS?
The definition of success varies from person to person. When I think about success, I think about a positive effect on people’s lives. To me success lies in how much we can contribute to society, what difference we can make and how we can make it a better place for future generations.
4. WHAT’S YOUR ADVICE FOR PEOPLE PURSUING THEIR DREAM?
Sometimes it is worthy just to simply follow your guts. Passion is an important factor too.
“You need to be so passionate about your dream that it should be the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morning.”
5. WHAT DOES HEALTH MEAN TO YOU?
Health is the greatest asset we have from nature and our parents. You need to look after it and treasure it because it is your greatest companion in walking towards success.This is one of the reasons behind the creation of our food supplement range. To nourish and to boost health along our way to success.
6. HOW DO YOU HAVE FUN?
When I’m alone, I really enjoy driving, being able to go wherever I want gives me a great sense of freedom. When I’m with friends and family, I really enjoy attending parties.This allows me to meet new people and strike inspirational conversations.
7. WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT UPSWING?
Our values and core message are unique.We didn’t create our product so that people could party more and drink more, but rather because we believe our time and performance shouldn’t be compromised for the enjoyable moments that we deserve. We believe a balance between work and life is what makes up a person. It completes our life journey.
8. HOW DO YOU REACH YOUR FULL POTENTIAL EVERY DAY?
A good sleep is the key to reaching my full potential. 1/3 of most people’s life is spent sleeping. By developing a regular sleep pattern, we're more likely to be healthier and efficient. A good night sleep really boosts my potential for the next morning.
9. HOW DO YOU ACHIEVE WORK-LIFE BALANCE?
I’d definitely say a careful time plan. By fully utilizing our time, a lot of things can be achieved and learned. By organizing my time efficiently, I also get to have more time to enjoy myself.
10. WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU ARE NOT WORKING?
I read books. Reading is one of the best ways you can spend your spare time. There’s so much you can learn by reading; It is an efficient way to learn and achieve your goal in the short term.
11. WHAT’S YOUR ULTIMATE GOAL?
As for the company, we do not simply aim to sell food supplement, we also want to share more of our values with the public. We want to deliver the message of an ideal work-life balance. Ultimately, I hope our philosophy can be shared across mankind on earth or maybe even across the universe.
12.IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME, WHAT PIECE OF ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE YOUR PAST SELF?
I don’t look back in time, I enjoy the present. If we could change the past, we should instead focus on changing the present
