A leopard can't change its spots, you say? Well, Khalil Rafiti ain't no leopard! And he did a great job putting his life back in order.
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.
He started to make juices for the patients and staff at the Riviera Recovery Center. This same institution helped him to recover his health as well.
In just 5 years, Khalil felt motivated to push further by opening a chain of juice bars in his hometown Malibu. He named the business SunLife Organics and the rest, as they say, is history.
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 Khalil’s prominent customers include singer Anthony Kiedes of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and actor David Duchovny of X-Files fame. They love the juice bars’ “The Elixir of Life” and “The Happy” cocktails.
These days, many aspiring entrepreneurs look up to Khalil’s example. What makes him even more amazing though is that he never forgets where he came from. He is a great boss to his employees and many of his staff members are individuals who also need help – just as he was once before.
Needless to say, this humble guy has restored our faith in humanity.
