Welcome to Business Over Drinks, one of the most unique podcasts you will find anywhere in the world helmed by two people from different walks of life.

The podcast is an extension of their real-life experiences as business owners, salaried employees and industry mavericks who made mistakes along the way and lived to talk about it.

WE SPEAK TO: Ginny Truc To 

Co-founder of Shoe Mo, shoe & sneaker cleaning, repairing and customization service brand. Started in 2016 in Malaysia, Shoe Mo now has 12 outlets across 4 countries. The idea came across as Ginny struggled to find a place to send her running shoes for a cleaning when she moved to KL from Vietnam. Then she discussed with her co-founder, then friend, Jack Wong and a few weeks later, Shoe Mo was born right in the middle of the sneaker trends in Malaysia. They managed to grab the sneaker lover market and from then expanded to non-sneaker shoes & bag services.
