WW Interview: Candle Creations by Jessy
WW: Tell me about your business. Why did you start? When did you start?
I started making candles 7 years ago or so as Gifts for family and friends.
WW: What makes your product stand out from the competition? (You can give as much detail as you’d like)
My product is highly scented and people who try them come back for more as the competition doesn’t put the max amount of scent in theirs and I do.
WW: What advice would you give to others who want to start a small business?
My advice to anyone looking to start a small business is make sure you love what you do! I see too many people out there struggling every day simply because its not what they love.
WW: It’s tough being a small business owner. How do you manage your business time, free time, and home life?
My business, thank goodness, allows family time to be incorporated with it as my children love helping mommy! I work a full time job at my parents business and have my candle business so life is definitely not boring!
WW: How has your business changed throughout the years?
My business started out so small with approximately 5 scents I could use as far as candles or melts, now I have over 150 always in stock! Now when I go to craft shows and festivals people seek me out !
WW: Who was your biggest business mentor?
My biggest mentors have been my mom and dad as they have owned their own business for over 30 years!
WW: What is your favorite marketing tool?
My favorite marketing tool I have to admit is Facebook. Once someone comments on my newest post it has the chance to go viral.
WW: How do you see your business in 10 years?
I hope to one day have a few store fronts of my own!
WW: What are links to your business’ website, store, or blog?
Now for a giveaway!!
