There has always been a part of me that wanted to be my own boss. I was fortunate to have a taste of entrepreneurship at at early age. My first products were making bead animals and lanyards. My parents helped me set up a booth at a flee market, and I sold my products. I remember being so excited to make things for kids that people wanted and were willing to pay for. This excitement led to me try out various Multi-level marketing companies. I was always sold on the fact that I could essentially be my own boss by selling someone else's products; however, I wasn't selling my own products. My desire to start something of my own grew even stronger. I want to have something that I can pass on to future generations. My family loves candles and natural products. I believe there's beauty in learning what's in the products we love to use and making sure they're safe. So I thought, why not turn this into a business? I was afraid of failure and not knowing where to start, but then I turned to Isaiah 41:10. After reading this scripture, I couldn't help but feel empowered. I have faith in this journey, and I hope to inspire you to start your own business journey!
