What is your day-to-day routine like at work?
My daily routine consists of working with vendor’s distributors, influencers, and more all in an effort to get exposure for the brand and our overall strategy for expansion into other markets.
What inspires you to show up at work every day?
Being a brand owner, one of the most rewarding things is to see my bottle in the store on the shelf and then being able to walk up to a customer and say thanks for ordering my brand.
