Looking at 46-year-old Khalil Rafiti now, you probably won’t have any clue that he was once a homeless man. Unless, of course, you’ve already seen his Instagram.

The successful entrepreneur has made millions from his business SunLife Organics juice bars. He has also released a book named “I Forgot To Die” where he detailed his experiences about how he rose from rags to riches.

According to Khalil, he was homeless and he struggled with drug addiction just 13 years ago. At the time, he weighed only 48 kg and lived in poor conditions. Fortunately, a friend took the time to help him by motivating him to start a natural juice business.

This inspired Khalil to start putting his life back in order.

With a friend’s help, Khalil started making juices for patients and staff of the Riviera Recovery Center.

The healthy beverages immediately became a hit among buyers in the area. His customers loved the fact that the drinks contained alkaline water, Himalayan pink salt, and dandelion greens.

SunLife Organics also serves fruit cocktails, coffee, and frozen yogurt. To date, however, the most popular product in their menu is the “Wolverine” – a smoothie made with bananas and dates.

Some of his loyal customers include Hollywood celebrities and other popular personalities.
