I am David, the guy who owns and runs this Pavlok information website. I thought since you are here, I might as well introduce myself quickly to you.
If the content of this website may sometimes display a lack of knowledge of the English language, then this is because I am not a native speaker. So, please try to not mind any incorrect spelling, expressions etc. Thank you 🙂
Born and raised in Germany, at the age of 28 I moved to Greece, where I still live. I’d describe myself definitely as a guy who is no stranger to gadgets, starting from everything related to Apple as well as gadgets around long distance running (a small passion of mine). Therefore it seems only natural to me that I also test the Pavlok wearable. The wristband is even more interesting since I am, too, interested in the subject of creating habits that help you to achieve your goal/s. I guess that is natural for someone who has a great deal of interest in everything that Napoleon Hill came up with while he lived.
Although I don’t have really strong ties to Maneesh Sethi, the brainchild behind Pavlok, I did have the chance to meet with him in person once. It was in 2010 or 2011 when I arranged to meet him in Berlin where he happened to be at that time and where I happened to go for a conference. Back then I had a website called “4 Hour Workweek Success Stories” (it doesn’t exist anymore), where I wanted to interview people that are passionate about the bestselling book The 4 Hour Workweek (affiliate link to Amazon) aka 4HWW by Tim Ferriss and who were on a good way to a 4HWW-like breakthrough and lifestyle. Maneesh was one of the people I was made aware of the earliest, as he too was inspired by the book, as it seemed. Long story short: we met in Berlin and I video interviewed him for about 40 minutes.
Already back then he appeared to be a smart guy, but not just in the traditional way. He seemed to know how to make things happen. He called it more ‘hacking the system’, also based on the fact that he usually didn’t go about things in the ‘normal’ way. But other than being connected on Facebook, there wasn’t much contact with Maneesh afterwards.
Fast forward to 2014…
Because we are connected on Facebook, of course I could see what he was up to over time. When Pavlok took shape, I was intrigued by the idea behind it, and also by the press it got. Most of all I am intrigued by the Pavlok story so far, and I am very excited to see where this will be heading. Therefore it feels only natural that I got on board as one of the Alpha testers of the Pavlok wristband and app. This means that I willingly paid the US$ 200+ for a device whose software isn’t perfect yet. I hope that I will be able to play a small but still important part in the success of this device. This is owed to the fact that on the one hand I’d like to see Maneesh succeed with his project, and even more so because I know that good habits are essential for reaching goals. After all: Maneesh himself lost 20 lbs with the principles of Pavlok.
I will do my best to publish regular posts here on this website about what the Pavlok team is up to and about the Pavlok experience of different people. So, stay tuned!
I started this website in September 2014, in order to support an idea that I believe in, created by a friend that I also believe in. At some point the Pavlok team created an affiliate program which allows other people (like me) to advertise Pavlok and earn an affiliate commission for each sale. So, I want to let you know that I am an affiliate for Pavlok. Plus: Since summer of 2015 I am also an investor in Pavlok. I heavily believe in this product and the solutions it can provide for its users. That’s why becoming an investor seemed a ‘no brainer’ to me. But I thought I let you know about those two aspects, so that you have that in mind when you read through the info on this Pavlok info website here.
