The Bulu Crew

Paul and Stephanie Jarrett do everything together. They train together, they work together, and they even write their bios together. After running the San Francisco half-marathon, this husband and wife duo stuffed samples upon samples of supplements, vitamins, and recovery gels from various vendor tents into their bag. Looking at their haul, the idea for Bulu Box hit them. Just a few weeks later, the plan to build a company that provides premium samples to help individuals discover better health was in action.
