How Ultra Violette Created A Cult Brand Almost Instantly
There are some products that you need but just aren’t fun to buy. Coat hangers, staples, ironing boards, flour... Here’s an idea for a business: find a product nobody likes buying and then make a version of it that people will describe as a “cult buy”. That’s what Ava Matthews and her business partner Bec Jefferd did when they noticed that skincare was having a moment but sunscreens were a product that just weren't very…. sexy. They changed that, almost overnight, with Ultra Violette. Their range of sunscreens come in distinctive bright blue packaging that you've probably seen all over Instagram. So, how did they do it? What was their approach to revolutionising a whole category?  Mia Freedman chatted to Ava to find out.  THE END BITS: Check out Ultra Violette here -  You can follow Ava Matthews on Instagram here -  Are you busting to start your own business but you don’t know where to start?

Lucy Kate Jackson & Nikki Westcott // HAPPY HOUR WITH THE WILD ONES
If you’re a regular podcast listener, today’s guests probably need no introduction but if you haven’t already tuned in to *Happy Hour with Lucy and Nikki* I’m sure you will be after this. Their banter is absolutely UNMATCHED, I don’t think I’ve laughed as hard in an episode for a long time and it’s absolutely clear why they’ve grown a cult following across their joint account *We the Wild Ones** *started in 2015 to follow their festival adventures, *Jagger and Stone* their booming fashion label kicked off with a bang in 2018 with an iconic shoot at Joshua Tree after Coachella and of course, their podcast that just took home silver at the Australian Podcast Awards. Lucy and Nikki have such a refreshingly different take on work/life balance to many of our past guests taking the party wherever they go but also building highly successful careers and businesses at the same time. Their straight-up approach to self-doubt and worst-case scenarios is also the example we all need of people who don’t let fear control their decisions and a reminder that two can achieve far more than one can alone. I had SUCH a great laugh - Lucy and Nikki are an absolute breath of fresh air with the perfect blend of self-deprecating and no f***s given and after a very serious year. Amazing reminder that life is far too short not to enjoy! I hope you love them as much as the rest of us already do! + Follow *We the Wild Ones** *here + Announcements on Insta at *@spoonful_of_sarah* + Subscribe to not miss out on the next instalment of YAY! >>> *JOIN THE SEIZE THE YAY FB GROUP* <<<
