Interesting story of the success of Boost Juice and the woman behind it. I would have to say accidental entrepreneur is a bit misleading as Janine Allis is a very driven individual.

(Audiobook) Three stars perhaps is not a fair representation of the book. It is a good book and enjoyable to listen to. It was repetitive in parts and Janine's glowing references to everyone who works in Boost became underwhelming. I have the feeling this is her way of encouraging people. As a business book, there are some well-worth pieces of information. And Janine does not make it look pretty - a lot of hard work and many, many long days and weeks have gone into Boost becoming the company it ...more

I try to leave only positive reviews - if I haven’t got anything nice to say I just usually don’t leave a review at all. So let me do my best to offer a fair review... I love what I’ve seen of Janine on tv and wanted to love this book but actually, it’s a bit of a mess. It’s one thing to be great a business or juice, another thing entirely to be great at writing your story in an interesting and compelling way. There are some useful lessons here, perhaps especially so for women in business, but t ...more

I really wanted to like this book because I have so much admiration for Janine but it was disappointing. Weird structure that seemed to just jump around. It’s part memoir, part business advice and doesn’t blend the two well enough to flow from one thought to the next. On a positive note, there is some good advice, business insight and plenty of good stories shared by Janine. The writing isn’t amazing but it would have mattered a lot less if the book wasn’t so messy and repetitive. This book coul ...more

I enjoyed this read immensely. Janine provided a great insight into the passion and dedication required in running your own business and even if you are not in your own business or in or thinking of setting up a franchise many of her key points were valuable. Janine has provided a new lens on these points for consideration as well as offering more insight into the importance of controlling your own minds state.

I encourage anyone wishing to pursue personal or business growth to have a read.

Really interesting story about a girl who never finished high school but went on to create Boost Juice, which has now passed $2b in global sales. Goes to show that there is now blueprint or stereotype for a typical entrepreneur, and with the right attitude, anyone can do it.

(Audiobook) Very interesting how Boost has become a global company. My god this women has some energy. Interesting idea's behind the growth of this business. However not everyone wants to build a business as grand as this. So take from it what you will. I also found she kept referring to her husband as she needed her husband behind her to support this business, which was a little annoying. Because she was basically saying you need a strong partner behind you. A lot of women start businesses with ...more
