We had the good fortune of connecting with Aleisa Stone and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Aleisa, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I enjoy the benefits of organic pressed juice, and I would like to share it with others as well. I fell in love with combining flavors together and the amazing energy you feel that comes with it.
I wanted to create something that described me in the best way “Introverted”. I’ve always been that way since I can remember. At the same time I enjoy talking to people and getting to know people, then running back to my room to recharge for the day, lol.
My favorite part of creating juices is creating a name for the juice. As soon as I taste the juice and look at the color, right away I instantly say the name of it out loud.
Never did I imagine seeing my mom making green juice from a loud machine growing up would be me today.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I believe In the heart of customer service. I treat every order the exact same, I always taste my juice to make sure it is the absolute best for my customer. I find pride in putting my labels on the bottles, seeing my logo, sitting back and saying “Wow, this is truly amazing”.
I set apart from others with my creativity and my personalized messages I handwrite for my customers each and every order.
This was not an easy process, a lot of researching, late nights early mornings. Writing notes and having an agenda helped me along the way.
The lesson I’ve learned is that if you have to go up on your prices in your business to have a better experience for the customer, they will still buy your product because they believe in you.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Of course the best city on earth “Phoenix, Arizona” has a lot to offer.
When my bestie lands in town, we’re going right to brunch at “Hash Kitchen” one of my favorite brunch spots in town.
We’ll start off at the Bloody Mary bar while we wait to be seated, throwing everything salty into our drinks.
Then we’ll head over to Scottsdale mall to meet all of our shopping needs of course.
Later we’ll head over to Zipps in downtown phoenix for their amazing Buffalo Focaccias and Zipparitas.
Being that I’m Introvert we’ll have to go to the hotel and chill out for a minute, lol.
For dinner were going to the best mexican restaurant in town “Chantico”.
We would also check out Sedona to get away from the city, go to a nice spa resort to relax and charge up.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to thank my friend Lysandra for pushing me and believing in me in creating the vision I had in my head. She has always been there throughout this whole process, I’m forever grateful for her.
I would also like to thank my partner Nickolas for seeing that spark in me even on days when I can’t make it out of bed.
Thank you for helping me with my orders early in the mornings and picking out the best fruit to make my juices pop.
