Man’s Search For Meaning – by Victor Frankl (WYWL podcast)

Man’s Search For Meaning – by Victor E Frankl

We find ourselves in middle of World War II. Frankl had been captured by the Germans and is in a concentration camp. “Every man was controlled by one thought only: to keep himself alive for the family waiting for him at home”. This is a dark book and highlights the atrocities of the time, but also shows us that terrible things happen when we lose a sense of meaning in our lives.

Janine Allis (WYWL podcast)

Our interview with Janine Allis

Janine Allis co-founded Boost Juice in the year 2000. In 2004 she was awarded Australian Businesswoman of the Year. Today, Boost Juice has 500 stores in 17 countries employing 7,000 staff and has made over $2 billion in sales. Janine is also one of the ‘sharks’ on the Australian version of Shark Tank.

In this conversation, we discuss:

– Life is a journey

– Selling your house and quitting your job to chase your dream

– Two types of people: VERBs and SOARs (hint: you want to be a SOAR)

– How she was a ‘dormant’ entrepreneur and didn’t really discover that entrepreneurial spirit until her 30s

– The new season of Shark Tank Australia, starting in May 2017

We hope you enjoy Janine as much as we did!

The Accidental Entrepreneur – by Janine Allis

The Accidental Entrepreneur – by Janine Allis

Janine Allis is the co-founder of Boost Juice, which grew from her kitchen table to 500 stores and $2b in sales across the world. But Janine wasn’t always destined to be an entrepreneur. She tells ‘The Juicy Bits’ in this warts-and-all book about her journey to success. When Janine was in the twenties, all she wanted to do was travel; she left on a six month trip and came back seven years later with a two year old child.

We learn that Janine didn’t really even think about running her own business until she was thirty. Boost Juice was founded when she was in her mid-thirties, and she was awarded Australian Business Woman of the Year in 2004 when she was 39. Janine is one of the five ‘Sharks’ on the Australian version of Shark Tank.

Dealing With People You Can’t Stand – by Dr Rick Brinkman and Dr Rick Kirschner (WYWL podcast)

Dealing with People You Can’t Stand – by Dr Rick Brinkman

‘How to Bring Out the Best in People at Their Worst’

This is a phenomenal book. Top 10 in our eyes. EVERYONE has someone in their life that they can’t stand (and there’s plenty of people that can’t stand you either). The two Dr Ricks provide some great tactics for dealing with all different personality types.

The ‘Lens of Understanding’ itself is worth the money and time invested into reading this book. It combines two spectrums (task/people focus and passive/aggressive assertiveness levels), three zones (cooperation, caution and danger zones), four behaviours (get it done, get it right, get along, get appreciated), four intents (control, perfection, approval, attention), and thirteen different personality types (tanks, snipers, grenades, know-it-alls, think-they-know-it-alls, yes people, maybe people, nothing people, no people, whiners, judges, meddlers and martyrs), all in one simple diagram! Absolutely amazing.
