LIVE YOUR MISSION | #010: David Simnick, CEO of Soapbox is on a mission to clean the world one soap bottle at a time.

In this weeks episode, Peter chats with David Simnick, the CEO & Co-Founder of Soapbox. This idea was hatched when David was working as a subcontractor for the United States Agency for International Development and saw a need for basic cleanliness. Soapbox started a one-for-one program and now donates soap to combat illnesses. Plus stick around to see him dominate the reaper round where he has a few Fabio moments and kills an ENTIRE bag of Reaper Jerky while adding some extra hot sauce!
