Hi All,

Big J1 here, but as many of you know my secret identity is Joel Goldberg C.P.A, C.F.P. My "real" job is Chief Operating/Financial Officer and athlete's rep of Species Nutrition. If you wish to ask any of me in any of my many roles you may do so here.

C.P.A. for 31 years..I have been operating startup Companies and growth entities for 25 years..My association with female bodybuilding has been going on for 27 years and I have been with Species since near inception.

Check out the Big J1 trivia quiz on muscle central...cool Species and Rx muscle stuff is given aways as prizes..I guess my 4x Jeopardy championships give me some creds there..

So on any subject you want regarding Species, FBB, me.....go right ahead

Humbly

Talk about your time on Jeopardy!

I will break this up into a couple of posts...In 1988 I was in Los Angeles for a family vacation and decided to audition for Jeopardy. It had been a lifelong dream of mine to be on the show and I felt I had the skills...To audition you need to make an appointment, they do auditions once a week and then show up at the Sony studios.

The first test was 50 questions where you wrote the answers down..They were on a screen for ten seconds. Then poof...next question. After this was over they graded the test and announced names of people that passed. Approximately 10 out of 100 people moved on to the next phase...I was one of them...I think I got 40-42 right but they didnt tell us the results

I remember some of the questions....Name the second vice-president of the United States.....Where are the Lippazaner stallions headquartered?

more to come..........

Jeopardy #2..cont...

After the first test, the 10 chosen moved to a different section of the theater and the non-chosen left.....The second test was interesting...we were brought up in groups of 3's and given a hand bell...Questions were asked and we were told to ring the bell at the correct moment... A little note about jeopardy!, you may not ring in until Alex has completed the reading of the question. In fact, in the actual game, a red ring around the game board is manually lit at the split second...If you ring in early you get a .2 second hold on your buzzer and are locked out.

I swear there was a direct descendant of Albert Einstein in my group, but for the life of him he couldnt wait for the end of the question..His IQ was like 4 gazillion but lo and behold he was disqualified and dismissed along with 6 others...

I had made it to the final 4 out of 100 and there was one more test to go........

to be continued

Jeopardy #3 cont.....

The final test..the remaining 4 contestants were asked to write 3 interesting facts about themselves on a note card...then an Alex Trebek stand in picked one of the factoids and asked us to speak about it....This was actually a test for the 15 second interview period on TV....every little fact was important to the testing process...

I was asked to talk about beating Michael Jackson in 8 ball pool (no not pocket pool) when I was 14 yrs old....Another fellow chose to speak about his restoration of a red porsche...he proceeded to break down the chemical content of the red paint. Needless to say he was never heard from again.....

When all was said and done, we were told the same thing that most women tell me, DONT CALL US WE'LL CALL YOU!

And call they did....However as you will find out in coming episodes I was the only one from that tryout ever to appear on the show..

to be continue....

btw, the shirt I got at the arnold I wore one night after work to the grocery store...one of the late night restockers saw it and asked about it and I told him about the product and dave and yadda yadda and now every time he sees me come into the store he goes, hey species!

I know of a store in the UK who are interested in being a distributor, but they told me the response they got from you is that you were not interested.
It would make things so much easier for us UK guys if we could order from the UK.
The store was www.predatornutrition.com (http://www.predatornutrition.com) by the way.

What are some of the requirements of an active distributor?

Perhaps related, I've noticed that Species Nutrition products are not available in GNC/Vitamin Shoppe locations. Could you expand on that or on Species' marketing strategy?

Hey mate,
Just wondering if you could let me know whats going on with the Species range in Australia?
Seems Carbolyze and Fiberliyze is all thats available through ASN or anyone elsefor that matter.
Just wondering if its unavailable due to Aussie regulations, or if your distributors may be dropping the ball.
If it the distributors, I can recommend another aussie distributor who is sure to be keen.

Cheers,
Duaneo.

I love all the species products and as a personal trainer and nutrition consultant i reccomend the supplements to all my clients and friends. Are there any plans for additional Isolyze flavors? Also, are there any plans for a new Testostolyze since the ph ban and 6-0x0 ban?

When will Martini Muscle have Species Products available?

Martini Muscle is a storefront that uses Europa Sports as their sole distributor and fulfillment house. They currently do not warehouse or fulfill on their own. Species does NOT use Europa Sports as a distributor for a variety of reasons. We have tried to have them make an exception for Martini Muscle customers but as of now have not been successful.

I pay attention to individual needs of individual women AND respect all of them without judging. This is especially important in this industry where much is evaluated based on looks.

I also try my best to be honest and DO WHAT I SAY AND SAY WHAT I DO. This makes me very very different from most in this industry. oops did I say that

What an interesting first post....

Would we ever see species nutrition being sold in Australia? Aparantly I can get whey brought in as long as the labeling has certain information requirements clearly listed. Customs said that the product needs to have less that 10% egg product eg lecithin, soy etc, and the label needs to be clearly listing the ingredients and country of manufacture..

Anyone know if the idolize meets this requirement. I'd really love to buy some online cause I can't get it here.
Thanks
