Pride in Your Work: David Goldberg
David Goldberg founded Curos, a natural supplement company after his father Gregg was diagnosed with brain cancer. The health crisis encouraged David to research naturopathic medicine. He has since worked with Dr. Josh Trutt, using use peer-reviewed research to develop natural supplements that optimize cellular health.
Taking pride in his work, he starts each day with one of his own supplements. David does more than put pride into his work, though. He also takes time to focus on relationships with family and friends so he can enjoy a fulfilling life with strong connections to the people he loves.
How would you describe your grooming routine, and what is your goal?
I am all about efficiency. I love to look good, but I also have busy days (and, admittedly, some lazy days, where I can’t be bothered). Every morning, I use BSG Hair Serum after a shower and every three days or so, I wash and condition with BSG products.
I also have been using the same natural face wash daily for a few years, although I’m starting to think it’s time for a change. As I age, I’m starting to notice my skin wants a bit more gentle cleaning.
Of course, I use natural body lotion, premium coconut oil, daily to stay looking smooth…
What does your typical day look like, and what do you do to make it productive?
I believe in listening to your own needs. I notice that every three to six weeks I go through a change, which dictates my needs. Currently, I am waking up early (6 a.m.), having a cup of coffee, Curos Essential and some MCT Oil, and working until late afternoon, get a workout in, and then back to the grind for another few hours before dinner with the girlfriend.
How did you choose your career and why?
I involuntarily chose my current direction, but could not be more grateful I ended up where I did. In August of 2016, my dad was diagnosed with Grade IV Glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. I quickly became obsessed with understanding how we could help him have as many “good” days as possible while limiting the “bad” days as much as possible.
Curos was born from my personal struggle trying to get to the truth of naturopathic medicine.
Today, we are building the future of integrative healthcare, making world-class care accessible and affordable for all. You can learn more about us at www.getcuros.com.
The BSG battle cry is “Pride in Your Work.” What does that phrase mean to you?
I sometimes find myself in the aisle of a grocery, drug or supplement store talking to random people about natural products and what they can do for their specific needs.
The pride I have in my work comes from a desire to help people live the most fulfilled days they can.
What are your personal and professional goals right now?
- Be happy.

If you could talk to a younger version of yourself, what advice would you give?
ALLOW, don’t rush the process or the moment. Move with urgency, but allow circumstance to happen. I would also ask that he learn as much about Dharma as possible. Become comfortable with the idea that my journey is uniquely my own, as I believe all of ours are, not to be compared or questioned, rather relished and enjoyed. Lessons I am still learning every day.
What are the most important things you do to make yourself more appealing to a potential partner?
I remember to love and take care of myself first. I cannot be there for anyone in the way I want to be without first showing up for A#1.
… and I work out like a maniac, keep the grooming standards high and stay mentally sharp.
What’s the most played song in your library?
At this exact moment, L.A. Salami “Gets You Wondering.”
What’s something you recently bought that changed your life?
Crow Collective, Journey Pant. Simply the best pants ever made.
What designers, artists, trend leaders or other people are you inspired by?
My older brother, who is a founder of BSG. His relentless and successful pursuit of greatness.
I am also inspired by local cultures wherever I go. Not the specific individuals as much as the collective waves of influence, movement, and change.
