[ARCHIVED] Young & Determined

Orlando Luna

Orlando Luna Protein shake

A success story of hard work and determination! At just 22 years old, Orlando Luna started his own business. However, getting there wasn’t easy.  

The Odessa native recalls when he opened his store that times were so tough that he had to live out of his business for a while. Orlando owns “West Texas Nutrition” and  has big plans of opening even more locations in the future.

His journey to this kind of business started after losing weight from running.  He saw fast results!  Then, a buddy took him to New Mexico where there were smoothie shops.  He quickly learned exercising was one piece of the puzzle and saw the value in having a healthy diet.  That INSPIRED him!  He wanted to bring that culture here to our incredible city.

He attributes much of his success to his girlfriend Valerie Vasquez. He says she’s been a big help. Not only does she hope with the store, she also juggles raising their 2 year old son.

The moral of the story.  He hopes inspire young people and remind everyone, no matter you age…. if you want something bad enough you can always get it. It takes heart, dedication, and patience.
