Summary "Two female cofounders of a wellness start-up struggle to find balance between being good people and doing good business, while trying to maintain their best friendship. Have you ever scrolled through Instagram and seen countless influencers who seem like experts at caring for themselves--from their yoga crop tops to their well-lit clean meals to their serumed skin and erudite-but-color-coded reading stack? This novel delves into the real lives of the people working in the wellness industry and exposes the world behind the filter. Maren Gelb is on a company-imposed digital detox. She tweeted something terrible about the President's daughter, and as the COO of Richual, "the most inclusive online community platform for women to cultivate the practice of self-care and change the world by changing ourselves," it's a PR nightmare. Not only is CEO Devin Avery counting on Maren to be fully present for the upcoming Series B closing, but indispensable employee Khadijah Walker has been keeping a secret that will reveal just how feminist Richual's values actually are, and former Bachelorette contestant and Richual board member Evan Wiley is about to be embroiled in a sexual misconduct scandal that could threaten Richual's future forever. When self-care is part of your revenue model, can confessing your damage be good for business?"-- Provided by publisher.
