JANINE ALLIS - Founder and Director of Boost Juice and Shark Tank Investor & Mentor.
‘Boost your Business’
Janine is not your everyday self-made businesswoman. She grew her juice and smoothie empire in 2000 from her kitchen bench, to an international success story. Boost Juice Bars are now in 14 countries with three new brands of Salsas Fresh Mex Grill and Cibo espresso and Betty's Burgers totaling over 600 stores.
But her path has been anything but ordinary.
‘I’ve had no formal business training, just a simple common-sense approach to business. I did not know what the traditional path looked like so I made it up along the way” she admits.
For most people, the formula for achieving success in life is to study hard, get good grades, get into a good business school or university and work your way up the ladder…. Janine’s way was to work 3 jobs so that she could fulfil her dream of travelling the world and let life take her on a journey. This journey took Janine around the world where she took on roles from a nanny in a little village in France to working for rock and movie stars on a yacht in the South of France and the Caribbean.
She has a great passion and love for business which has translated from inception into sales of over 2 billion dollars globally.
Janine’s business approach has made her a leader in her field, with BRW listing Janine as one of the top 15 people who have changed the way business is done in the last 25 years.
Janine is now sharing her knowledge with others, including through her role as a ‘Shark’ and mentor on Channel Ten’s Shark Tank. Her latest adventure has been as a champion contender on Channel 10’s Australian Survivor.
Apart from her Directorship with Retail Zoo, Janine is a Director on the publicly listed Michael Hill Jewellers, and was the first female director on the board of the Hawthorn Football Club.
She is also the best-selling author of ‘The Accidental Entrepreneur, which is the story of Janine’s journey with Boost Juice and podcast co-host on Superwomen We Ain’t.
Janine’s philosophy is simple- if she can do it, anyone can.
