    LG Sciences 2013 - The real story


    Hi all, this is Eric. It's been quite a while since I have been on here and it's been a crazy two years. During the past year not one person besides myself has kept their job, including my partner Warren. Every single employee has been replaced. Why?

    If you know me, you will probably know I am a pretty generous person. I have probably sent free supplements to half this board! My folly was to be too nice to people and try to have a happy work environment. Oh well, live and learn right?

    That all to say that I am back and alone in leading this thing. No longer saddled by people who are takers, I am going to rebuild as much as possible LG.

    I am thinking of doing something radical. I am thinking of doing an open source company of sorts...

    I want build a user base that will design, improve and promote our line of supplements. This unique because I spent the past year contracting with a state of the art manufacturing plant. Thus, I can make pretty much any supplement on the planet.

    Now, I want to set the expectations straight, this isn't a "tell me what to do and I make it " system, it's going to be split up into segments that all people can work on.

    There will be certain teams such as:

    Prohormones

    PCT

    Preworkout

    Basics

    Book

    Being on these open source projects will give you access to many things. You will have access to raw materials, our two biochemists, my database of papers, flavoring and marketing... we can try various concepts, but the ultimate goal is to make these products a staple brand.

    LG has always stood for quality and integrity and we want team members that will contribute to this and be part of the organization.

    There will be those that oppose us, but I really don't care what other people think...for people who want to be part of something meaningful this may be your chance.

    I used to love LG. You were one of premier suppliers during the peak PH era. Nearly everything you produced worked. To be honest I haven't noticed much from you latest line of supplements.

    Good to see you posting Eric. Sorry to hear about the prior employees only taking and not giving what they should. Glad to see you have turned it around though.

    Thanks, I wouldn't say it is turned around. I spent the last 4 hours on the bank trying to track down a rogue credit card...

    It's been a tough road and all I can say is this:

    Trust no one...or better yet trust but verify often.

    Always trust your gut...if something seems wrong it probably is

    Growth isn't always a good thing!

    Other than that we have good packaging, solid products and a good message. I am just trying to get things moving in the right direction so I can establish LG as a brand again.

    Like I said, I am open to ideas on products but I am going to need a lot of help getting things right. I don't always make perfect decisions and also a lot of this business is grass roots with guys like you.

    I noticed that when I entered law school and couldn't spend as much time on AM and other boards, that we really suffered. I am still in law school but I realize that being here and interacting with friends and enemies alike is important to the business. So I will be here as often as possible.

    All very true points. Well i know there will definitely be people willing to help!

    Interaction is huge in my opinion. I know it can be hard but if consumers can interact with the owner of a company they seem more willing to spend their hard earned money, so long as the owner isnt shady etc etc.

    Nice to see you back. Been pretty absent myself over the last year, but still keep in tabs with those outside the forums. Nice to see Chris and Josh still around as well - Chris, email! Have been a supporter of Eric since first interactions several years ago - you have those few you trust and who will always just say it as it is. Definitely agree with Josh in that owner/designer interaction is important with consumers, because it gives them a chance to get it from the source, and if that cannot happen, a team who is knowledgeable and available in the same way is an asset. Look forward to seeing how things work

    I feel your pain with law school. It's brutal.


    You sent me free protein last year and I shared it with my roommates and everyone loved it. I wish it was more widely available. I know PHs are really your company's base, but that flavoring was delicious .

    I had many customers at my old shop that loved the protein too. As soon as I let them know that I was not able to get anymore for the time being it was gone it a day.

    Well, we were visionaries with the pea protein blends. The problem was the taste was not consistent enough and that was a pea protein thing (all manufactures had the same issue). By the time we got it all straightened out the price tripled! It's good quality protein and super clean.

    Lots of good stuff coming. Stronger Natadrol (more actives and switched to tablets). A couple of PH's possibly...

    The big announcement for the brand will be later today!

    Awesome!! Eric looking forward to it. Especially the stronger natadrol. I've been saying this for years. But natadrol is hands down my favorite natty supplement.

    Glad to see you are trucking ahead! Natabolic stack was one of my favorite supplement stacks, can't wait for the new natadrol and new products.

    Just kind of wondering how this open source thing will work? I am a chemical engineer, and have always wanted to dabble in this sort of thing...

    yeah, I am kinking around the wyked, but without the DMAA it's going to change a bit. Still, my favorite preworkout.

    As far as how to get involved. Send me a PM and I will give you my yahoo IM. Basically, as we move forward there is an opportunity to optimize and create new supplements. New ideas, refining of packaging, refining of marketing etc... I only want one project at a time, so I am looking for people that want to really be part of something.

    Glad to hear about the improved version of natadrol. I never gave that one a fair run but I know it has a loyal following and those folks were disappointed to learn of it's retirement. Great news!

    wow sorry to hear about your company eric. Admit-tingly I haven't used too many of LG's products as I never really got into the pro-h fad, but I did use the EAA product you guys had out. I admire the way you guys kept your products affordable, always had the most competitive prices for your protein, eaa's, and preworkout. If you need any help writing sport-specific type training articles then i'd always be willing to lend a hand.

    This is all awesome to hear!

    Hope everything works for the best Eric.


    I'm ready to see what LG has to offer, I can't say I've used much of your previous products but I am very excited for a stronger natadrol.

    Now I understand that you are looking for new better products, but are you satisfied with the current lineup or would you like to make changes to that as well.

    I would like to make some minor changes to the current line. I want to redesign Wyked and release it but I am not sure what to do without the DMAA. Maybe I will try some with Dendrobium.

    More drama yesterday...my accountant couldn't work with our CPA and quit opposed to have a 1 hour meeting with the CPA. I couldn't make that up...she was super nice and a hard worker.

    So, just be patient.

    To refine my ideas...I would like to have a person each work with me on a product that they believe in and want to help improve and promote. They will have input on the product and the marketing of course they need to be sane about it! I want people that really want to be part of something and I only want people that believe in the products. A person can also suggest a product from soup to nuts but it has to of course make sense!

    Thanks for all of the good wishes and for being patient. Running everything by myself is tough but I hope that I can bring LG back to a place where people were proud to be a part of it!
