Whether it is from your overgrown driveway or if you do go off the beaten track- this product is a great solution for those annoying scratches.

Shark Tank Season 2 – E2

Disrupt Gary Elphick Gary is a great guy, who was immediately likeable and was very relatable to me. He is he a lover of life and I knew I could work with him, so big tick. TIP : when looking at investing into a business or getting involved in a partnership. Make sure there is a culture fit.

Secret recipes revealed….. Do secrets matter in business?

This week we had a staff member release our top selling smoothie recipes onto Facebook. I discovered this when a journalist gave me a call to see if I had a comment. My reaction was very different to what it would have been 20 years ago when I started the businesses. Back then, I would have gone into melt down, thinking our competitors were going to find out our secrets, that customers would no longer come to Boost because they now have our amazing recipes and can make them at home and the dozen other…

Find Love in Whatever Form It Comes In for You

Success is one word that has so many different meanings and conjures up dreams. Research has shown that when you are in your 20s, most people think of success as being rich or famous. Interesting however that when you look at the longest study ever conducted from teens to people in their 70s, success and happiness actually came in the form of relationships. When I was a young girl, getting into the representative netball team was the sign that I was truly successful; winning that grand final was up there at 13 years old and I would…

Walk your way to a better work-life balance & do the same for women around the world

I’d like to challenge you all to do one simple thing next week. Put your runners on and walk. Walk in the shoes of women around the world who walk for hours every day to collect water, food and firewood for their families.

Not only will it help your work-life balance, get you outside in the fresh air and improve your fitness; at the same time you’ll be helping less fortunate women and girls around the world to improve their…

Sometimes it just sucks

This month we had our turn at being smashed in the media. It’s unfortunate that I have to defend Boost, a company that prides itself on promoting a healthy and balanced lifestyle, however we have recently had a number of media outlets report misleading, unjust and unfounded information about our products. We have a large variety of products available in-store, ranging from low calorie options, such as the small-sized Ginger Tonic with only 60 calories (similar calories to an apple) to our Brekkie To Go Go, our highest calorie product which is high in protein…
