Coming to you from Venice, California at Bev Headquarters, talking to founder and CEO Alix Peabody about her female-first beverage brand Bev. Bev is a mission-driven #breaktheglass beverage company that has risen in a real phoenix from the ashes story. Alix got sick, really sick. Collapsing in agony, suffering an ovarian torsion, which is a severe medical condition where the ovary twists and cuts off the blood flow, Alix was in and out of surgeries that left her with a huge debt. Bev grew out of a risky plan to pay off that debt. Now, Alix is on track to build a beverage company with a focus on empowering women. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/beautiful-hollywood/support
