FOX BYTE #1: How to Ask Someone to Coffee

It's our first FOX BYTE! In addition to bringing you awesome interviews with amazing women, Erin and Casey will be chiming in with topics as they come up in our little brains. This week's mini-episode is focused all around the semi-controversial "Can I take you to coffee?" question, how to best approach the ask, what do when someone says yes and just how important the follow up is. Before going the entrepreneur route, Erin and Casey worked in the PR world where they networked their little fox tails off so they know their stuff. Enjoy this FOX BYTE.

Episode 42: Running the Wellthy Empire with Shizu Okusa, CEO + Founder of JRINK Juicery

This week, we talk to Shizu Okusa, Founder + CEO of JRINK Juicery, a juicery that has been booming in Washington D.C. since 2014. After an Eat, Pray, Love-type experience, Shizu was inspired by all the different ways to incorporate wellness into your everyday life and JRINK was eventually born. Now, the brand has evolved to cover all your wellness needs with the opening of their sister company, Apothékary. JRINK focuses on reactionary health - think: I am hungover and so need the ‘Clean Me Up’ right now. Apothékary is more about proactive wellness and covers anything from mental health to sexual health. Shizu talks about the journey of the brand, the challenge of finding her niche, and how she’s been able to define her business in an ever-changing health and wellness industry. Plus, Shizu introduces us to the Dosha quiz, a personality test to help you identify what wellness strides are best for you - and we ALL know how we’re suckers for a good personality quiz.
