“The #IAlso campaign is absolutely aligned with my values in helping women to define their own measures of success and to build a thriving business without sacrificing time with their family or their wellbeing.”

Michelle Ovens CBE, Founder of Small Business Britain, added: “Congratulations to Erin and each of the phenomenal women featured in this year’s #IAlso100.
