    Building Success Through to Maturity, with Childs Farm

    Building Success Through to Maturity, with Childs Farm

    Childs Farm came to life back in 2010 when Joanna Jensen, a devoted mother, faced a challenge that would set her on a life-changing journey. When she found out her two daughters struggled with sensitive and eczema-prone skin, Joanna, like so many parents, was determined to find a solution that would help them feel comfortable and happy in their own skin. With a demand so close to home but no solution available in the market, Joanna created Child’s Farm predominantly to remedy her children’s eczema. Today we will hear how this gap in the market led Joanna to start her first business and how she worked her way to selling the £36.8 million company 12 years later.
