Boston native and entrepreneur, Kristina Tsipouras, is best known locally as the founder of Zoos Greek Iced Tea and Busy Girl Daily, which offers business consulting life coaching and assistance on how to launch a brand. Her latest endeavor was in creating Moroccan Magic, a USDA organic, Argan oil infused, super smooth lip balm, that quickly caught the attention of a nationwide audience.
Tsipouras is coming out with her fist book this spring, Busy Girls Guide to Happiness and is also the woman behind the Boston Business Women Innovation Conference with keynote speaker Arianna Huffington.
We caught up with Tsipouras recently to find out what she loves most about Boston.
