Goddess with Guts & Co-Founder of WelleCo
WHAT’S YOUR MOTTO?
One day at a time.
WHAT’S ON YOUR NIGHTSTAND?
Reading glasses, books, photos of my husband and children, my WelleCo Sleep Spray
WHAT GIVES YOU GOOSE BUMPS?
The absolute truth.
WHAT IS YOUR BAD DAY BACKUP PLAN?
I can always start the day again (even if it’s 3 pm).
WHAT ARE YOU GRATEFUL FOR?
I’m equally grateful for – My Health, My Children, My Husband.
HOW DO YOU DEFINE SUCCESS?
When I was younger I probably defined success by covers of magazines or income earned… Today I believe success is navigating the ups and downs of life and still keeping a sense of faith and a sense of humor through the rocky patches.
BEST ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?
Drink 3 litres of water a day (with 2 tea spoons of Super Alkalizing Greens in 500mls). Scheduling personal appointments in a diary with as much importance as a business meeting.
BEST ADVICE YOU’VE EVER GIVEN?
I prefer not to give advice unless asked – although always happy to share my experience though.
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NOW THAT YOU ARE EXCITED ABOUT?
My wellness business WelleCo and my lingerie joint venture Elle Macpherson Body are filled with the release of new products to expand the offerings and growth of both companies in 2017. There is a lot to do and it’s an exciting year ahead. I’m so passionate about these two businesses and I find it fulfilling and inspiring.
HOW DO YOU PRESS PAUSE?
Stop. Breath. Respond. (not React)
WHAT DID YOUR 8-YEAR-OLD SELF LOVE DOING?
IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE MAGIC POWER WHAT WOULD IT BE?
To be 100 percent heart lead.
WHAT MAKES YOU FORGET TO EAT?
Well, I don’t eat when I fly does that count? – Preferring to drink lots of water. Skipping meals is not really an option though. I believe in Balanced Nutrition.
WHAT IS THE HARDEST THING YOU’VE EVER DONE – YOUR GREATEST CHALLENGE?
Starting 2 new businesses at 50, walking away from a steady income stream in licensing and converting it into equity and investing and creating in my own businesses; starting from scratch.
Can I swear!?!
FAVORITE WORK OF ART?
A painting by Basquiat I bought with every last cent I had in the bank – late 80’s. I loved it and had to have it (and still do). This coupled by various paintings and drawings from the kids.
I love to read, so it’s difficult to choose one book… Maybe Tuesday’s with Maurie? (Mitch Albom). I also love Marcus Aurelius’ book Meditations.
WHAT 3 THINGS WOULD YOU GRAB IN A FIRE?
Photo Albums of the children pre digital camera and hard drive with all the kids baby pics and my modeling library, phone with all my contact and the Basquiat! Actually all the art! Oh gosh let’s hope for no fire!
