We had the good fortune of connecting with Zach Schultz and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Zach, is there a quote or affirmation that’s meaningful to you?
One of my favorite quotes is, ‘Your network is your net worth.” I love this quote because it reminds me of how grateful I am for all of the people I have met along my journey and also inspire me to get out and keep making connections with new people. Relationships are so valuable and I have learned so much from the people that I have worked with and shared friendships with over the years.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Beyond my health and fitness blog @becuasejuiceland I work in finance in the tech industry. I started in tech after graduating from UT Austin with degrees in Business Honors and Supply Chain Management. I have really enjoyed being in such dynamic and growing industry but the fast pace can certainly be challenging to keep up with. Being a fast learner and having a curiosity about the business are keys to success in the tech industry. Part of my brand in balancing my health and fitness and my career is being proactive and aware of my priorities and my schedule. Setting up my week with fitness and health scheduled into my calendar help me keep on track despite crazy work weeks.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
For a weekend in Austin my first recommendation to a friend would be to schedule restaurant outings.. I would point them to my food Instagram, @zacheats512, where I document some of the best food in Austin, TX. Enjoying Austin weather outside would also be a part of the weekend and for this I would recommend a visit to Zilker park at sunset and then a Greenbelt hike one day as well. Austin is such a beautiful place and there truly are activities for everyone.
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?
My friend since grade school, Chantam Duong, is my partner in crime when it comes to health and fitness, which was the inspiration for our health and fitness blog, @becausejuiceland. Having someone who brings positive energy and motivation to your life is essential.
