"The founder of Zhena's Gypsy Tea Company tells her extraordinary story of struggle, hope, and audacity, inspiring women to overcome setbacks--no matter how daunting--and pursue their dreams. As a twenty-four-year-old single mom, Zhena Muzyka had a young son in need of life-saving surgery and only six dollars in her wallet. But she also had three other powerful motivators: hope, a love of tea, and a dream to share beautiful, aromatic, organic teas with the world. By combining her knowledge of aromatherapy and her gypsy grandmother's teachings, Zhena started selling custom tea blends from a cart on California street corners--and with a lot of ingenuity and grit, her business took off. Now, thirteen years later, her son is healthy and Zhena's Gypsy Tea isa thriving, purpose-driven, fair-trade, multimillion-dollar brand. Life by the Cup is the inspiring story of Zhena's journey to a meaningful life as CEO of a company that benefits health, protects the environment, and supports humanitarian efforts. Zhena's message to women is that no matter where they are, they can change their circumstances and live their dreams. Each chapter illuminates an inspirational life lesson through stories and wisdom passed down through generations--and also shares one of hersignature tea blends as well as mouthwatering tea-based dessert recipes. Zhena's gentle insight will motivate you no matter where you are in life. Her message: Be audacious in your dreams, commit to your values, and see your passion transformed into possibility"--
