The Woman Who Manages Australia’s Biggest Celebrities
Michael Bublé, Delta Goodrem, Guy Sebastian, Jules Sebastian, Fleetwood Mac, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Human Nature. What do all these famous musicians have in common? They are just a small fraction of the talent managed by today’s guest, Jennifer Fontaine. Jennifer started her career at Sony Music Entertainment Australia, before moving on to Warner Music Group. But then, like so many women, she decided she wanted to do exactly what she wanted to do. She wanted to work for herself. So in 2007, she founded Private Idaho Management, and began to look after the careers of Human Nature, and Guy & Jules Sebastian. But with offices in both Sydney and LA, Jen was travelling a lot. All while taking care of her son and trying to grow her business.  So how did she do it?  And how on earth does she find time to lift weights 6 times a week?  THE END BITS: You can find Private Idaho Management here - Follow Jennifer on Instagram here - Are you busting to start your own business but you don’t know where to start?

We're back for another episode of Beauty IQ Uncensored, brought to you by Adore Beauty.  What’s on this episode? We’re glad you asked... Cringey: IV Drips We recently visited Grown Alchemist to try "drip therapy" - please note, this is a medical procedure so always consult a doctor. We had a fusion of vitamins and antioxidants, prescribed by a doctor and administered by a registered nurse in a sterile and clinical setting. Our experiences are individual, and we're not suggesting anyone "needs" this treatment. You can out more about drip therapy here: Sebaceous Filaments vs Blackheads Dermal therapist, clinical educator and Head of Dermal at Extra Clinic in Canberra, Elise Birchall joins us to discuss the difference between sebaceous filaments and blackheads, how to treat them, why some of us are more prone to blackheads, and why you shouldn't try to squeeze them out of your boyfriend. Elise mentions the following products during her interview: Medik8 Pore Cleanse asap radiance serum Medik8 Crystal Retinal You can find Elise on Instagram at @elise_skin PWDKWN: Jo: a teabag... see the TikTok we were mentioning here: Hannah: Apotecari Mane Event Disclaimer: Hosts: Joanna Fleming & Hannah Furst Guests: Elise Birchall Support the show: See for privacy information.
