Michelle Wrights for Family Friendly Working

We’re celebrating 10 years as a social business at Cause4. As I reflect on where a decade has gone, with the various twists and turns of life including having two children, moving house twice and finally upping sticks to live in the country– it strikes me just how much has changed, not in my energy, ambition or commitment to the work we do, but in how different my perceptions are now about what’s important and what really constitutes a successful business.
