SHARK TANK S4 E11

This week was interesting. We met someone who has made a healthy ice cream….. I am pretty sure that would have hooked you.. So here are my thoughts: FROPRO I really enjoyed Ed’s pitch, he is creating the worlds healthiest ice cream….I am assuming this is as voted by Ed, as I am sure there was not research of data to back up his claim. Fropro has no added processed sugar but did have Stevia which has been quite common on Shark Tank this year.  Stevia getting utilized more and more in healthy products, but…

SHARK TANK S4 E6

This week it is all about appealing to people’s indulgences, from the finest chocolate and vibrating underpants to a healthy vodka and an environmentally friendly solution for winter clothes drying. One of the contestants even got me standing on my head and doing some other moves that I never envisioned that I would be doing on Shark Tank.. Oh and Steve cracks it again – this time at Naomi!   WEARABLE X https://www.wearablex.com/ If you follow my blog or social media posts you will know that I am a massive fan of yoga and it…

SHARK TANK S4 E5

This week we have Steve sucking on a bottle and getting very excited, some seriously yummy food, a very sad story of what you should not do in business, and an actor who wants to be a business person, or does she..? have a read of my blog post and see what you think of the businesses on tonight’s episode.. SCRUBBA https://thescrubba.com.au/   One of my investments from season 1! I love working with Ash and watching his business go from strength to strength. SUBO https://www.suboproducts.com.au The Subo cup is a solution to the mess…

SHARK TANK S4 E2

Episode two was full of surprises, a family business, a cure for menopause, reminiscing on past deals, creepy babies and a new way to do retail. This is what I love about Sharktank; you never know what is going to come through those doors and yes Steve did crack it and walk out…. So let’s look at the businesses that were on Sharktank episode two… DESSERT BOXES The good old family business. There are lots of positive aspects to a family business, they should be able to get over their differences quickly as they have…

Orange you glad you don’t get sucked into fad diets.

The “it” word is steering us away from fruit and vegetables and for some reason we are believing it in a misguided attempt to be healthy. The so-called “it” word I am referring to is sugar, and guess what?! Fruit and vegetables have sugar in them – in fact some of them have lots of it and I hate to break it to you, they’re not the problem. Each and every day Aussies are surrounded by messages of what we shouldn’t be eating because we are told as a nation that we need to watch…

New year, new pantry. Combating obesity is simple.

With Christmas and New Year fast approaching, a lot of people will over indulge on food and alcohol and come January, will be looking to join the gym or jump on the latest diet fad to lose weight, eat better and be fitter. It seems like a mammoth task, when in fact, with the right head space and education, you can make informed decisions on the path to being healthy and it doesn’t have to be hard work. We hear about new diets every day and they are all backed by different, confusing research. We…

Sacrifice is the biggest thing you need consider when getting into business

There is no one on the planet who would not say that your health is your greatest asset. Mind you when you are in your teens and early 20s you think that by the time you are ready to die there is probably going to be a cure for death. In the meantime, you drink too much, experiment with all sorts of things and do risky and some would say stupid things (I may be just talking about myself here), and health really is a low priority – as long as we look good in…

You want me to put the coffee where?!

It always amazes me that people spend a fortune on their car every year to make sure it’s in peak condition but they only spend a fraction of that cost on their own engine; their body. You can always get a new car if it’s a dud but you can’t get a new body. I love a good detox challenge as much as the next person, so I have been going to health retreats for years. Like most people, I’m really dedicated at the start and get inspired to make all the healthy changes. I…
