Ep 341: Eirini Schlosser Interview - Helping You Chuz

"Pray for mistakes early on and hope that you realize them." - Eirini Schlosser

Eirini Schlosser - Founder & CEO of Chuz

Eirini Schlosser is the CEO and Founder of Chuz, a mobile app that curates quality spot content (discovery of restaurants, bars, and cafes) with the ease-of-use of a single mobile interface. Eirini Schlosser completed her masters at London Business School and started her career in investment banking in Morgan Stanley's M&A Execution Team in London. At Morgan Stanley she had exposure working on multi-billion dollar technology, consumer, and retail deals. Though an incredible learning opportunity on how businesses scale, how to problem solve analytically, and how to execute and work very hard, she craved creative outside-the-box impact. The idea of Chuz was born as a direct solution to a problem that her and her friends faced: the time consuming difficulty in planning where to go with friends for food and drink.

Ben Rhinesmith hails from Muskegon, Michigan and currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

After nearly two years of work in high-level public relations, Ben has stepped out on his own to create Blue Public Relations, a firm dedicated to working with the best and brightest talent in music, sports, and entertainment.

Ep 334: Megan Collins Interview - The Style Girlfriend

"Put in a little bit of effort for a big payoff” - Megan Collins

Megan Collins - Founder of Style Girlfriend


Men’s style expert and former nationally-syndicated newspaper columnist, Megan Collins first discovered an appreciation for men’s clothing through inheriting her older brother’s hand-me-downs.


Today, Megan is making it “okay for guys to try,” through Style Girlfriend - the only lifestyle destination of its kind for real guys seeking real advice from a friendly, female voice. This girl-next-door approach to providing straightforward support to guys who want to up their game has captured the attention of thousands of grateful readers, as well as brands like Visa, H&M, NFL, Rogaine, and G by Guess. As the face of Style Girlfriend, Megan also appears regularly in fashion, menswear, and lifestyle publications and websites including: GQ, Esquire, Men's Health, Lucky, Metro, and the Huffington Post.


Perhaps most powerfully, Megan has opened up a trusted dialogue with her audience, tackling everything from the proper pant length to dressing for a first date. Style Girlfriend is the rare place where guys feel comfortable connecting - with Megan, her contributors, and with each other. Topics covered include style (of course), food, fitness, home and travel, but also the stereotypes and insecurities that too often keep men and women at odds with one another. In this regard, Megan’s work goes far beyond the superficial.


Originally from Wisconsin, Megan now resides happily in New York City.
