Janine Allis, Founder of Boost Juice on building one of the biggest juice bar businesses in the world

Giants, this is episode #69! Our guest is the Founder of Boost Juice & Retail Zoo – the parent company of Boost Juice, as well as Salsa’s Fresh Mex, CIBO Espresso and Betty’s Burgers. She’s also an Australian Shark Tank Investor, Author and mother of four children. It all started with her vision of getting more fruit and veggies in people’s diet and – loving life along the way – which is now a reality, with over 2 million smoothies and juices sold every month. Boost Juice has more outlets in more countries than any other juice bar in the world. She also has a long list of awards to her name including BRW naming her one of fifteen people that changed the way Australia does business in the last 35 years. In total, her businesses span across over 650 stores worldwide, so it’s no surprise that as a Shark Tank investor, she can quickly pinpoint the difference between a good business – versus a great one. Part of her unique philosophy is that it’s not necessarily about “being better” – rather, it’s about “being different”. Some of the topics we spoke about include: Her epic “go-to” concoction that she makes each morning What she learnt from backpacking for over seven years The sacrifices involved when starting a business Having an ‘always learning’ appetite and mindset And the ‘BBQ Test’ she uses to inform and grow her business. So if you’re looking to learn from a powerhouse businesswoman, who’s worn all the hats, has weathered many storms and has more proof in the pudding than most entrepreneurs I’ve ever met, then this is for you. I present to you …the opportunistic, out-of-the-box thinking, power mum and business giant … Janine Allis!

Kevin O’Leary, aka Money Expert Mr. Wonderful and Shark Tank USA Investor on succeeding as an entrepreneur

Giants, Ram Castillo here. This is episode #68! Today’s guest is a Canadian businessman, author and TV personality from Shark Tank USA. He co-founded the technology firm SoftKey – which was later acquired for more than $4 billion dollars. He has since launched O’Leary Funds (an investment fund company), O’Leary Fine Wines – and a best-selling book series on financial literacy which covers everything you need to know about making, saving, and growing money. He’s even stepped his foot into the world of politics (which we briefly talk about). He has a current investment portfolio of 29 companies (possibly more from when I interviewed him 2 months ago to now). He first learnt about entrepreneurship at a young age after his step-father advised him to not become a full-time photographer – a story I won’t spoil as our guest delivers it so well. And now he is on a mission to educate the next generation of entrepreneurs to truly succeed. Some of the topics we spoke about include: The common mistakes he sees people aged 20 - 35 make with their money His advice for going ‘all in’ professionally in your creative craft The best and worst investments he has made The three common attributes all successful pitches have on Shark Tank So if you’re thinking about making a success out of your creative craft – or are looking for ways to grow your financial freedom through running a business, then this is for you – as we uncover what truly makes an entrepreneur successful. I present to you … the brutally honest, relentless and generous … Kevin O’Leary!
