Ep. 150 Turning a 401k into Rosé: The Wild Story of Founding Bev & Creating a Brand Dedicated to Female Empowerment with Alix Peabody

Screen_Shot_2018-09-12_at_9.24.15_PM.png

Alix Peabody founded Bev, the rosé “made by chicks” and drank by, well, anyone who enjoys a tasty rosé wine!  

We admire the way that Alix walks the walk and talks the talk, nurturing Bev into not just a beverage company but also a mission-driven brand dedicated to female empowerment. Her story is wild, and she’s been a mentor to us over the past few crazy months. She’s helping us grow and spread our wings – and we know she’ll be an expander for you too!


We discuss…


  • The Bev mission statement

  • Going on destination first dates (like Hawaii with a guy you’ve never met before)

  • How the male-dominated social scene in college led Alix down the path to starting Bev

  • Experiencing ovarian torsion

  • Creating the first bar designed with women in mind

  • Investing her 401k into rosé

  • Finding a wine supplier on Hinge

  • Attending four high schools in three countries

  • The loophole that allows Bev to sell wine directly to consumers, without a distributor

  • What people don’t see in building a business

  • Working in and running a business with radical transparency

  • Knowing your worth
