Aimee Marks is the founder of TOM Organic, an organic feminine hygiene company with purpose.
As a school student, she wanted to stop tampons from rolling around in the bottom of her handbag. Now in 2017, TOM is giving thousands of Australian women access to pure and reliable organic tampons and pads.
But without the support of the strong women in her life, she wouldn’t have been able to build the kind of successful and conscious business TOM is today.
“A handful of amazing women have believed in me along my journey, but it all began with one woman believing I could create anything if I was passionate and maintained my values throughout the process,” the entrepreneur told Mamamia.
“The defining female force throughout my whole life has been my mum. She has empowered me from a young age to see the positive in everything, to see the best in everyone, to think differently and be creatively curious and most importantly to have incredibly strong values in business and life.”
