1) Emma, what is your favourite thing about running The ANSC?
I love that I’ve been able to create a business out of a passion. Most of our products have come out of my family’s own personal journey to reduce household waste so it’s wonderful to think that our soaps have become an important part of other people’s households.
2) What is one lesson you've learnt on your journey - could be work or personal?
Never undervalue your own time. I still fall into the trap of thinking I can do everything. But I’ve regularly learnt the hard way that my time is best spent on the development and management side of the business. It is hard though when a big part of my job when I first created the business was actually making the soap... I sometimes miss those days!
3) Are there three words to describe your day?
I’m still the primary carer of my 18 month old daughter so a typical day in 3 words would be: A juggling act!
