In the first part of this Feature, we interview Zak Williams, Co-founder and CEO of PYM (Prepare Your Mind).  PYM is an all-natural, non-GMO, gluten, and no-added-sugar, “mood chew.”

Whether it’s learning to cope with personal anxiety throughout daily activities or it’s your first try, PYM is solely created to help lift your mood.
Zak also shares with us that they donate a portion of their proceeds to Bring Change to Mind.

Through their mission, Zak is truly devoted to helping break mental health stigmas and normalize, reaching out to receive mental health care.

In Part 1, Zak discusses Zak Williams and his own journey in mental health; Starting an accessible consumer goods company; Developing the chews; Creative solutions that help maintain productivity and assurance; Growing the company’s mental health initiative with the brand; Discussing mental health & productivity; and much more.
