Sophie Cornish: ‘Women, don’t be so hard on yourselves!’

When Sophie Cornish and her business partner Holly Tucker started notonthehighstreet.com from their kitchen table in 2006, they didn't expect it to grow into a multi-million pound firm.

"Women tend to be their own worst critics," Sophie says. "I wish I could say to my younger self, 'Stop beating yourself up. Trust yourself.'”

If only Sophie's younger self could have predicted the company's success – the online marketplace has an annual turnover of £150m, over three million customers and 200 employees.
