Sophie Cooper and her husband Aden founded body care business Anihana around seven years ago  - creating bath bombs, solid shampoos and shower steamers.

They were parents to a young baby at the time. They now have two children, and as their family has grown, so has their business.

Anihana products are now sold in more than 8000 stores across New Zealand, Australia, and the United States in retail giants such as Target and Walmart.

Sophie tells Kathryn about her experience in business and a busy and challenging few years.
