Here at LIVELY, we’re constantly surrounded by swoon-worthy women that are killin’ it in their businesses. We're launching #WomenCrushWednesday to celebrate the boss babes who provide us with a constant flow of inspiration, support, and endless girl-crushes.

Up next, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Frank Body, Jess Hatzis!

frank body scrub is the coffee-based skincare company that has taken over Instagram since their 2013 launch. Their taglines are "skincare that makes babes feel like...babes" and "let's be frank, skincare should be simple." and Jess Hatzis is the brains behind the incredible marketing campaign! 

What is your hometown?

What are the biggest challenges of the work that you do?
Being constantly "on". When you own your own business you never really stop, I tend to work from the moment I wake up until the moment I go to sleep.

What advice could you give on find a healthy work-life balance?
Exercise. It's so important for your mental health. Meditate if you find it helpful. Learn how to put your phone down and be present with your family and friends.

Learn how to put your phone down and be present with your family and friends.

What’s the best advice you’ve gotten from a mentor?
If you don't ask, the answer will always be no.

What is your process when approaching your creative work?
I tend to write down every idea I have and then return to it a day later and cull out the crap. Being open to people adding to or improving the idea is so important.

When do you feel most empowered?
Walking down the street listening to "Hot child in the city". Seriously.

Where do you go in NYC to unwind?
I find wandering through the West Village or Central Park helps me relax a lot. I'm going to try AIRE tomorrow and I can't wait.

What’s your biggest guilty pleasure (life’s all about balance after all!)?
Red wine. Clothes. Chocolate.
