Janine Allis and her company Boost Juice are well known all over the world. With over 400 stores in 12 countries and an average earning of $AUD135, 000, 000 per annum, there is no doubt that Janine Allis and her Boost Juice empire is an international business success story.

What makes her journey to the top even more interesting is that Allis went from a stay at home mum with no business experience to head honcho of a multi national corporation. Her path to success was unconventional. Boost Juice was a concept that Janine came up with over her kitchen table and which grew into a phenomenal success seemingly overnight.

In her latest book, The Accidental Entrepreneur, Boost Juice founder Janine Allis shares the tips, tricks, skills and secrets that took her from housewife to business guru. The book guides you through the long journey that she embarked upon, sharing with you the lessons, mistakes and experiences that have helped shape her business success.

Allis has always acknowledged that part of her success is related to her zest for life and her desire to win over the hearts of her consumers. She also recognises the importance of creating the right team of people, to support your business and allow it to reach its maximum potential. In The Accidental Entrepreneur, Allis stresses the importance of listening to your customers, sticking to your personal core values and being a team player.

As a mother of four, Allis clearly understands the importance of work/life balance and emphasises that you don’t have to sacrifice your health, lifestyle or morals in order to play with the big boys in the business world.

Boost Juice is now in more countries than any other juice in the world, employing over 6000 people and is still growing. The simple idea of a juice company by a Melbourne mum has grown to an international success story and is living proof of how big successes can start out small but can grow when nurtured.

If you have a desire to develop a business idea, Allis is proof that you don’t need fancy degrees and loads of experience. The Accidental Entrepreneur will show you how you too can pursue your business dreams, point you in the right direction, show you what pitfalls to look out for and ultimately help to set you on the right path to success.
