Today, we speak to Janine Allis, founder of Boost Juice, on her unusual path to the top.
Having held jobs as diverse as a cinema manager in Singapore and a stewardess on David Bowie’s yacht, Allis says she had invaluable, if unconventional, training for the world of business.
She explains how she turned Boost into a multinational brand and gives some essential tips for start-ups aiming to emulate her success.
In an equally remarkable entrepreneurial tale, we interview Larissa Robertson on how she saved 180 of her colleagues’ jobs by buying the remains of their failed company, despite never running a business before.
Plus, James Omond outlines the legal ramifications of getting an investor on board.
