The Top 40 under 40 is a showcase of local business talent under the age of 40 compiled by the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber (NMBBC).
Lynn Erasmus (31), owns the local publication, Your Money.
Her publication may have only just celebrated its one year anniversary, but Lynn Erasmus is already attracting attention and reaping the rewards. A free publication providing financial advice, Your Money was recognized by the 2011 Vodacom Journalist of the Year awards in the regional community media category.
This ambitious entrepreneur credits the power of networking with helping to her realize her potential and expand her business. To improve the financial literacy of the man in the street, Your Money hosted a seminar directed at emerging entrepreneurs in New Brighton in August this year.
November saw Erasmus raise the profile of the Eastern Cape as local celebrities raced through the region to complete various challenges for charity in Your Money’s The Power Plate Incredible Race – Eastern Cape.
Erasmus says she is only just getting started. “I have a great passion for what I do, and an absolute belief in myself and my company” she says, “and I want to help others where I can. If you can dream it, you can do it.”

The Top 40 Under 40 list, an NMBBC initiative, was compiled from nominations and selected by an independent panel at the NMBBC. The end result is a showcase of talented and ambitious young businesspeople from diverse sectors in Nelson Mandela Bay. From 7 December 2011, MyPE showcases one under 40 achiever a day.
