Naomi Simso, CEO Red Balloon, says: Ooh.. a star.

Sarah Harris: You are a television star.

Naomi Simson: You say that and it just doesn’t occur to me like that.

Sarah Harris Is it weird?

Naomi Simson: It is weird, it’s really weird, because that’s not how I view myself.

Long answer. (LAUGHS) Sorry.

Carl Jackson, CEO, OzSale: Well, thank you for shopping with Oz Sale, that’s a very, very important start. (laughs)

Karin Adcock, CEO Alex and Ani: Pandora is still a baby of mine. That’s not ever going to change and Alex and Ani is really something completely new and different.

Jody Allen, Founder, Stay At Home Mum: I was pretty shattered. You know, I chucked a tanty.. cried.. (SARAH LAUGHING).. drank wine. All those sorts of things.
