In this week’s episode of “Someone You Need To Know”, Rashanah chat’s with entrepreneur and Chicagoan Chrishon Lampley who shares her experience of turning losses into wins by founding Love Cork Screw Wines to how she was able to pivot during COVID-19 in 2020 and now in 2021 expanding her wine brand nationally.

Many businesses and specifically Black-owned businesses were forced to close their doors after the economic fall out from COVID-19, Chrishon did the complete opposite and she shares with Rashanah how she kept moving her businesses forward.
