THANKS FOR THE WARM INTRO, EVERYBODY. >>THANKS FOR BEING HERE. >>BEFORE THERE WAS TAB, THERE WAS ELLE MACPHERSON IN AUSTRALIA THINKING ABOUT GOING TO LAW SCHOOL. >>ABSOLUTELY. I JUST FINISHED SCHOOL AND I APPLIED TO LAW SCHOOL. MY STEPFATHER WAS A LAWYER, AND I FELT LIKE THAT WAS THE MOST SENSIBLE THING I COULD DO. I TRULY BELIEVE EDUCATION IS IMPORTANT, BUT I NEEDED TO FINANCE MY BOOKS AND SCHOOLING, SO SOMEBODY SUGGEST I START MODELING TO GET MONEY FOR EXTRA BOOKS. I SAID OKAY. >>THAT WORKED OUT PRETTY WELL. >>I KIND OF CHANGED TRACKS ALONG THE WAY, BUT I’M REALLY PLEASED THAT I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLORE AND GET TO KNOW WHAT I REALLY LOVE TO DO AND VERY HAPPY THAT I HAD A SOLID EDUCATION AND ALSO I MANAGED TO CHANGE COURSE AMONG THE WAY. >>YOU WERE LIKE THIS, LIKE THIS.

CAN I JUST SKRKS WHAT DID THAT E FEEL LIKE, AT THE TOP OF THE GAME, PART OF THAT MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, CINDY CRAWFORD AND YOU, WHAT DID THAT FEEL LIKE WHEN IT’S HAPPENING?>>IT’S NOT ONE OF THOSE THINGS YOU RECOGNIZE AT THE TIME. IN HINDSIGHT YOU HAVE 20/20 VISION. IT WAS AN INCREDIBLE PERIOD. AT THE TIME I WAS JUST DOING MY JOB AND TRYING TO DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY. THAT’S WHY IN ABOUT 1989 I HIT A CROSSROADS WHEN I HAD A LICENSE OPPORTUNITY COME TO ME AND MY MODELING AGENCY AT THE TIME DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH IT. SO I DECIDED TO LEAVE THE MODELING AGENCY AND SET UP MY OWN BUSINESS THAT COULD THEN FIELD BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES. YOU KNOW, IT WAS JUST — YOU MADE DECISIONS AS — I’VE ALWAYS MADE DECISIONS AS I FELT THEM TO BE AND MY INSTINCTS. >>THAT’S SMART. SO MANY MODELS DON’T RECOGNIZE THIS COULD BE A TIME LIMITED OPPORTUNITY AND THERE HAS TO BE LIFE BEYOND MODELING. YOU’VE ALWAYS BEEN A BUSINESSWOMAN IN ADDITION TO A SUCCESSFUL MODEL. SO THIS DAY. WELLECO. GET IT?>>THAT WAS MY CEO AND I SAT AROUND ONE NIGHT GOING, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO CALL THE BUSINESS?>>I LIKE THAT. WE’RE GOING TO EXPLAIN WHAT THAT IS AND THE SURPRISING THING>>>WE ARE BACK NOW WITH MODEL AND BUSINESSWOMAN ELLE MACPHERSON. CAN I ASK, WE SAY McPHERSON. IT’S NOT RIGHT. >>YOU SAY TOMATO, I SAY TOMATO. WE HAVE LOTS OF AUSSIES HERE. >>THEY KNEW YOU WERE COMING. YOUR BUSINESS TIES IN PERFECTLY WITH HOW WE CAN LOOK LIKE YOU. >>FEEL LIKE ME. >>PROTEIN POWDERS. NOT JUST WELLNESS POWDERS. YOU ACTUALLY DO THIS, WHEN I READ YOUR DAILY ROUTINE, NO WONDER SHE LOOKS GOOD. IT’S ALL ABOUT WELLNESS. WALK US THROUGH. POWDERS ARE NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT YOU’RE SELLING. >>WHAT HAPPENED, WHEN I TURNED 50 I WASN’T LOOKING WELL. MY SKIN, MY HAIR. >>CHALLENGE. >>I CAN SHOW YOU THE PICTURE. SKIN, HAIR, WEIGHT, JUST FEELING NOT INSPIRED. THE SUGAR CRAVINGS, POOR DIGESTION, POOR SLEEP. I WENT TO MY NUTRITION, I SAID, LISTEN, SOMETHING IS WRONG. WHAT I USED TO DO ISN’T WORKING ANYMORE. I REALLY NEED TO ADDRESS MY LIFESTYLE, SOMETHING. SHE LOOKED AND SAID YOU’RE TAKING A LOT OF SYNTHETIC VITAMINS. WE NEED TO PUT YOU ON A POWERFUL MULTI-VITAMIN MINERAL PREBIOTIC, PROBIOTIC POWDER THAT I STARTED TO TAKE. I REALIZED THE VITAMINS I WAS TAKING WERE SYNTHETIC, MY BODY WASN’T ABSORBING THEM. I WAS KIND OF MALNOURISHED, I WASN’T SLEEPING ENOUGH, WASN’T EATING ENOUGH PLANTS, FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, DRINKING LOTS OF COFFEE. I STARTED ON THIS PROGRAM AND WITHIN A MONTH I NOTICED SUCH A CHANGE. I WAS WORKING WITH MY CEO, NOW MY CEO. AT THE TIME SHE WAS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? YOU LOOK AMAZING. I SAID, YOU KNOW, I’M TAKING THIS GREEN POWDER. IT’S CHANGED MY LIFE, THE WAY I FEEL. >>THERE’S A LOT YOU DO I’VE NEVER HEARD. CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE COCONUT OIL IN THE MORNING?>>INSTEAD OF TOOTHPASTE I USE COCONUT OIL WHICH I SWIRL IN MY MOUTH. IT’S CALLED OIL PULLING. IT’S A VERY OLD-FASHIONED PRACTICE. IT’S NOT HOCUS POCUS, SOMETHING WE’LL HAVE DONE FOR A LONG TIME. THE THEORY IS YOU DETOX DURING YOUR SLEEP. WE HAVE A PRODUCT AT WE WILLE CO. YOU SLEEP, RID TOXINS. >>IT’S NOT THE SAME BENEFITS AS IF I EAT AN ALMOND JOY. >>LOVE THOSE ALMOND JOYS, DARK CHOCOLATE ONES. >>EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE YOU HAVE TO DO IT. >>YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT ELLE’S PUTIN LINE AND SECRETS, SOMETHING SHE DOES BEFORE SHE GOES TO BED WITH A YOGA POSE.
