We've run into some SUPER not supportive people since starting our businesses, as well as some AMAZINGLY collaborative people as well. Here's our take on what we've learned.

Episode 45: Turning Passion into Profit with Nycci Nellis, The Ultimate Foodie & Multimedia Maven

Happy Monday, Foxies! We are trying something new here and are going to be posting our new episodes on MONDAYS. What better way to start your week than with us?! We thought so too.

This week, we are super excited because we have Food Critic and Journalist, Nycci Nellis, in the Foxhole! What started out as an idea 15 years ago, has now turned into a multi-media operation that covers all things food, wine, and entertaining in the greater D.C. area. Her pre-blog website, TheListAreYouOnIt.com, now has over 40,000 subscribers and covers everything from restaurant openings, industry events, local buzz, and what next best things are coming to the District. I know, we are starting to get hungry too. 

D.C.’s OG Foodie tells us all about her journey and how she “stumbled” upon her dream job. From finding support in her local community to struggling to change with social media, Nycci gets totally authentic! P.S. She also gets real about  her skincare, and if you can’t tell by that photo up there, you DON'T want to miss that. Enjoy!

P.S.S. Our REVIEWS CONTEST is running until December 20th. Give us some love on iTunes and we'll love you right back with a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card. Winner will be announced on our Instagram December 21st!

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.
