Raw Organic Juicing = The Ultimate Superfood!

Eco Tan Loves_ Raw Organic juicing = The ultimate superfood.

Here is what I know: Raw Organic Juicing by Sonya Driver

Superfoods contain a high concentration of vitamins and minerals. Raw organic juicing of superfoods is a power packed way of optimising your health and vitality. I have found by just adding one small thing, what a big difference it can make. Raw organic juicing has changed my life and it will absolutely change yours too!

Do yourself a favour and watch “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead”. I’m telling you, this documentary started a revolution. It follows Joe Cross, an Australian man, who regains his health by juicing fruit and vegetables. It truly inspired me.

Following My Calling – Romania Bound

Following my Calling – Romania Bound – by Eco Tan Founder Sonya Driver

Eco Tan Founder Sonya Driver just returned to the Gold Coast after visiting a single mother and her 5 poverty stricken daughters in Romania. It’s a beautiful story, worth a read…

So last year a friend of mine who travels the world helping and feeding street people, came across a woman with five young daughters, living in a village in Romania.

My friend thought he had seen it all… But this time, his heart was broken and the videos he shared about how they were living horrified me. They were literally sleeping on piles of rags with mice and rats. No water, no food, no door, no window, no beds. Nothing.

Lonela, the mother, was digging in the dirt for worms for 13 hours a day so she could sell them to fisherman as bait. The family were always hungry and sick.

The Joy Givers Soiree Lunch

Sonya Driver, founder of organic Eco Tan, hosted the Joy Giver's Soiree Lunch - a Fundraiser Event, to raise money & help a poverty stricken family.

It’s rare to get the opportunity to REALLY change the lives of this those in desperate need.

My friend and fellow joy giver, Owen, of many years has a heart for the homeless and broken, and he spends his time travelling the world helping those in need. Recently Owen visited Romania and one family in particular rocked him to his core… We decided, it was time to rally our folks, we needed to organise a fundraiser event.

Lonela’s Story:

Lonela is a single mother of five daughters. She can’t read or write. To earn money to feed her family, she works for the fishermen and fisheries digging through dirt for worms for 13 hours per day! Sadly Lonela hasn’t seen her eldest daughter smile in three years.

Tips & Tricks to Success in Business…

Sonya Driver’s Business Success: Tips & Tricks

What I believe is… what you love to do is your calling.

You will naturally be good at it and you will instinctively know how to make it a business success.

So many people go looking for business ideas, I hear all the time, “I don’t know what I want to do.”

My answer is always: ”Well, what’s your passion? What’s your gift? We all have something”.

At the risk of sounding like a bragger, I am good at business.

Anyone’s business. I don’t know why, I can just see how to make it successful and what structures and models need to be put in place to make it a success.

I am driven to see other people succeed! It excites me.

I love the doers of this world and will extend myself to anyone that has the right motivation and when my gut feeling goes crazy!

My team, on the other hand, hates it because I spend many hours per week mentoring mainly CEO’S of all sorts of different businesses. I also genuinely like to do it for free (much to my accountants displeasure). The reason I don’t like to charge is because that way I don’t have to censor myself.

You Need to Believe to Receive

Eco Tan Founder, Sonya Driver, deeply connected with Dr Libby's talk 'The Pace of Modern Life versus our Cavewoman Biochemistry'... Read her review!

This video changed my life: The Pace of Modern Life versus our cavewoman biochemistry

I seriously urge you to watch Australian leading nutritionist and international speaker, Dr Libby Weaver, present The pace of modern life versus our cavewoman biochemistry. Dr Libby discusses how in today’s age women are feeling the pressure of trying to be all things to all people and our current biochemistry has yet to catch up…

Ever had the feeling someone was peeking inside your soul?

Well when I stumbled across this video on FB that is exactly how I felt! Instead of feeling convicted or guilty I felt so sorry for myself and other Women. I even cried for Dr Libby

The Most Important Question Of Your Life

We ask you American self-help author, blogger and entrepreneur Mark Manson's question... What is the most important question of your life?

The Most Important Question Of Your Life – Mark Manson

A few of us at the Eco Tan HQ connected so deeply with this article that we had to share… Written by from American self-help author, blogger and entrepreneur, Mark Manson.

Everybody wants what feels good. Everyone wants to live a carefree, happy and easy life, to fall in love and have amazing sex and relationships. To look perfect, make money and to be popular, well-respected and admired. To be a total baller to the point that people part like the Red Sea when you walk into the room.

Everyone would like that — it’s easy to like that.

If I ask you, “What do you want out of life?” and you say something like, “I want to be happy and have a great family and a job I like,” it’s so ubiquitous that it doesn’t even mean anything.

New Year, New You! Time to Embrace 2016!

Will you commit to a new you for 2016? Come January 1st we always promise this year will be different. Let's stick to our 2016 New Years Resolutions!

New Years Resolutions

It happens every year. We all promise to ourselves that come January 1st, a new version of ourselves will emerge. A version that actually enjoys exercise and doesn’t stuff their face with junk food at every chance they get. GUILTY! It’s time to set our New Years Resolutions for 2016, something we can actually stick to…

It always starts off with good intentions, but suddenly it’s January 7th and we’re still in our pyjamas at 4pm. Having spent the whole day watching TV, with 2 empty packets of Doritos by our side. Oops!

Fear not! This year is different, because we want to inspire many to embrace 2016 as a year of holistic and healthy living. We want you to feel healthier and, in turn, happier!

Highlights of 2015 – The Year That Was!

Well 2015 has been kind to me personally and to our Eco Tan team.

I really hope our loyal customers have blossomed and thrived in 2015. Just a few quick highlights!

At the age of 49 my family and I moved in our first house that we built. To begin with we had a small pool ? In the extreme heat of QLD! Given this, we are going to truly enjoy our first summer in 10 years. This house was on my vision board for 8 years.

Personal Highlights in 2015

After being a single mum for the past 7 years, to now living with Gary (who has been in our lives for the last 5 years) the compromise has been interesting! Poor bastard doesn’t know what all the screaming is about. We scream when we are excited, sad, mad whatever. We love noise. That’s why we built him a man room with a dirty big telly.
