We had the good fortune of connecting with Jennifer Crute and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jennifer, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
ZenJen Juices was ignited in 2015 when my grandparents was suffering from “small gut syndrome”. For those who don’t know, ” small gut syndrome” is a disease you develop from poor eating habits which causes bowel blockages. Theirs was so bad that each time they had to get a major part of their intestines taken out. So as you can see my written is on the wall. I needed a change!! I created Juices that’ll are designed for overall digestion. With the 6 flavors I offer attacks different parts of overall digestion. My juices are bold, intense, and worth a try!
My mission/purpose is “CHANGING HUMAN PERSPECTIVE ONE HUMAN AT A TIME”.
What I’ve learned on this journey is OVERALL HEALTH begins and ends in the GUT! Treat it well! 😊
What should our readers know about your business?
It took a lot of hard work and dedication to get to where I am today /going. I’ve learned so much opening a business. However, it’s all trial by error never a failure only lessons learned. Shipping is the hardest part of my business since all my juices are live ingredients with no preservative.
I would like the world to know that ZenJen juices are changing human perspective one human at a time!
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.
I love ponce city Market, downtown, Jeju spa, and SLUTTY VEGAN!
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 Sasha at SMB Studios who keeps my label designs fresh and new.
I would also like to thank Robyn my photographer for all she does for my brand and shoots!
