I recently had an opportunity to speak with Erik Delarosa, Texas’s own hunky & hard-working businessman & familyman.

Erik DeLaRosa, is a: nutrition/fitness expert, entrepreneur/MBA, finance/sales/marketing, online health coach, founder of Patsy G Mustard, and a sponsored athlete with team Gaspari, based in Dallas, Texas. I am inspired by DeLaRosa, personally & professionally. Personally, I am inspired by his incredible physique, style & charming southern accent. Professionally, I am inspired by his work ethic & entrepreneurial spirit.
What is a day in the life of DeLaRosa like?
“I wake up really early, like 4 or 5 am, and I go to the gym for about an hour and a half. Then, I get ready for work and go to work. Then, I have different things going on, that I have to do. I also own a mustard company, so like on my breaks or right after work, I have to make calls, setup demos, and set up my employees so they can work. Then, I have clients, that text me all day, it’s just nonstop until I go to bed, usually Monday to Friday. Scheduling, working & doing a full-time job too, so just business, all business all day, I work a lot,” said DeLaRosa.
What is one sentence would DeLaRosa use to describe Patsy G Mustard?
“There’s nothing like it. So it’s a condiment, that has multiple uses, and it’s one of a kind & you can use it on anything,” said DeLaRosa.
DeLaRosa’s most memorable year was the year his daughter was born. If he could leave her one quality it would be to be driven.
“What is one quality that I would like to leave my daughter, just to be driven, and work hard for what you want in life. Don’t expect anything to be handed to you and don’t rely on anyone. Just do things yourself, work hard, do a good job and just follow your dreams,” said DeLaRosa.
What does DeLaRosa prefer boxers or briefs and what is his favorite brand?
“I would have to say, that I wear them all, but I, wear briefs mostly and my favorite brand is Armani,” said DeLaRosa.
What would be the title of Delarosa’s life story and who would play him in a movie?
“Breaking the cycle and I’m going to play myself,” said DeLaRosa.
What is DeLaRosa favorite quote for inspiration?
“My favorite quote is, work hard, have faith and be tireless. One of my mentors told me that, just when Patsy G was just an idea, being made in my kitchen. I was trying to get it off the ground, and I will never forget it, said DeLaRosa, “but I am tired,” DeLaRosa added humorously.
