President, CEO / Boca Tanning Opportunities
Coconut Creek

In addition to her day job overseeing the training of more than 200 employees and managing marketing and finances at Boca Tanning Opportunities, Jen Boronico is also a regional commentator for boxing and mixed martial arts on FightZone TV and manages and plays lead guitar for Pandia, a well-known cover rock band in south Florida. "I try to strike a balance between work and fun and live a life that is as stress-free as possible in this day and age," she says. "If you have a creative outlet you enjoy and you can make money at that, it's a beautiful thing."

Her routine: "I'm mom to a 7-year-old little angel, which is my most rewarding job. I wake up with my daughter, get her to school, go about my Boca Tanning day — meetings, conferences, visiting stores — then I pick up my daughter at 4, spend time with her until around 9, and then I'm off and running to a performance with the band or commentating."

Energy boost: Boronico attributes her boundless energy to a consistently healthy lifestyle. "I've spent 25 years in the gym, three or four times a week — it's just part of my lifestyle. People there know me as the 'pull-up girl' because the first thing I do when I get there is 30 military-style pull-ups."

Rock and hip hop: "I'm the lead guitar player, but they give me the mic for one song a set. I like hip hop, so I love to rap Kid Rock — that's my favorite thing."

Prices have been increasing on beef and pork. How will this impact your grocery bill?

  • Greatly: I will be spending more because I buy a lot of beef and pork
  • Some: I will likely be switching to cheaper cuts or to poultry
  • Not much: I have been cutting back on meat anyway
  • Not at all: I don't eat beef or pork
