We chose to use soy because of the benefits it gives to you, our valued customers. We offer Soy candles, Soy Cubes, accessories, warmers and nectar.
What inspired you to start your business?
I was looking for something to cure my personal craving of candles along with building a business I could stand behind & be enthusiastic about selling.
What has been the biggest challenge in your business and how have you dealt with it?No big challenges as of yet… I’ve been in some form of direct sales for the last 10+ years and have learned quite a lot. Remembering not to completely flip out over what is going on and just have faith and prayer and it will all eventually work out, there is always a solution to every problem.
What would you say has contributed to your business success?
Patience and persistance.
What advice would you like to offer to other women/moms who are thinking about starting a business? Research it thoroughly, find something that you are truly pssionate about and you will have greater success.
What is your favorite tool/resources you use for your business and why?
Oh Wow favorite, um, I have so many. Business cards are the best you keep them with you 24/7 and push pins, best way to get you business out there with minimal cost to you.
Share one business goal you have for your business: I want to get my product information out to anyone and everyone for a cleaner eco-friendly candle solution.
