Irene Falcone
2016 Telstra New South Wales Entrepreneur Award Winner Nourished Life

After spending 10 years in senior marketing roles for some the world’s largest companies, Irene Falcone created her own business to fill a gap she saw for trusted, environmentally-friendly beauty products. She created Nourished Life to provide sustainable, eco-friendly, natural personal care, beauty, home and lifestyle products – all backed by substantiated information. Irene leads, inspires and empowers her growing team of more than 20 working mums and her proudest achievement so far has been to successfully take her online-only business to a bricks-and-mortar retail store with a large warehouse, office space, and on-site naturopathy service.
