Turmeric lattes are all the rage these days, with the anti-inflammatory and health effects of Turmeric, we can understand why! We featured Golden Grind Turmeric Blend in our Spring Retreat Yourself Box and everyone loved it! We decided to go behind the scenes and find out a little more about the crew behind the grind...
Tell us a bit about the person/people behind Golden Grind…
Golden Grind was created by Tahli and Renwick Watts and Sage Greenwood. Tahli is a certified nutritional scientist with a love for health and nutrition. Having owned and worked in various cafes, she’s a wealth of information about the hospitality industry. Renwick is a sportsman with a degree in Business Marketing and an extensive history in hospitality. Sage is an ex-model with a law degree and nerdy love for data and numbers. We all have had and still have our reasons to care for and nourish our bodies. We live in South East Melbourne and are massive dog lovers.
What would an average day in the life look like for you?
Well we all still have full-time jobs, so Golden Grind runs after hours and on weekends. Plus we all exercise and find time for balance so our days are long and very, very full. We wake at 6am and either exercise or have team meetings. We work our day jobs from 8.30-6pm and then come home for dinner and a couple time before doing a couple of hours each night on Golden Grind. Let’s just say there is no time for TV!
It sounds like you’re flat out having to run your business work full time, how do you maintain your own health and wellness whilst being so busy?
Balance. Good food and nutrition, and park time with the dogs.
What inspired you to want to start Golden Grind?
Probably the fact that we are all so passionate about health and well being and because we saw a gap in the market. At the time of creating Golden Lattes, there was no such thing and we loved the idea of setting a trend with something that is so genuinely good for you.
What have been the biggest trials so far in starting and running Golden Grind?
Probably being time poor. And always having so much to do. Lucky there’s 3 of us. We also find it hard to really portray how passionate and genuine we really are and make sure we continue to set ourselves apart from the now, many competitors.
Here at Retreat Yourself, we LOVE dreaming BIG – what is your vision for Golden Grind?
We are going to be the most known, most successful and largest turmeric brand in the western world!
For anyone out there wanting to start their own business, what would your biggest piece of advice be?
Do your research. Be true to what you're trying to achieve. Pay attention to detail. Work hard – but always keep a balance and be ready to make sacrifices.
As we're greeting the warmer weather, our bodies begin to crave extra moisture to stay hydrated, so it's important to drink plenty of water and to find great skincare products to keep you feeling moisturised from head to toe.
When we came across Wild Fox Apothecary we were instantly blown away with the stunning design and functionality. To then discover they're made from all natural and organic products utilising native Moroccan ingredients, so we simply had to chat to founder Nicole Louise!
Activated charcoal is one of nature’s most powerful cleaning agents! So when we discovered PearlBar's Konjac Facial Sponge, we were excited to try it out.
This light weight sponge harnesses all of the benefits of charcoal so we just had to sit down with founder Bridget Rose to talk skincare, wellness and to learn a little more about the benefits of this amazing facial sponge.
