Interview by Abner Jackson III
How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
The concept of my business came from me loving scented candles. However, I felt that every time I purchased a candle I was disappointed, because the scent didn’t last long after lighting them. I wanted to make my very own.
What is unique about your business?
What’s makes my business unique is that, I use soy wax and other all-natural products for my body scrubs, body oil, & body butters. I am very particular what I put on my skin, so I wanted to use the best all-natural ingredients I could find.
As a business owner, what are your top three priorities?
Quality Products. Customer Service. I want the customer to feel good and enjoy the products that I make.
For a first-time buyer, what items would you recommend purchasing from your website?
I would suggest The Birthday Cake Candle or it’s My Quiet Time Candle. As for body products, I recommend the it’s My Quite Time body scrub and the Glowing body oil.
Where do you see your business in the next year?
In the next year I see my business with a storefront and having my products in some stores or spas.
If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?
Stay the course, have faith and while staying the course work on your craft.
What would your perfect room look like?
This is a fun question; my perfect room would have a big floor to ceiling window. Drapery from the ceilings, a unique and beautiful ceiling fan with the most comfortable couch or bed adored by pillows. Fresh roses, candles everywhere, a sound system to listen to my playlist and of course a sage stick. Light airy colors everywhere.
How has your family shaped your personality and who you turned out to be?
My family consist of with mostly women, strong women. At a very young age I watched my grandmother work her ass off. She stressed the importance of being independent. My mother has always been a great cook and crafter. My sister is the black Martha Stewart. Naturally I have the innate ability to be creative.
What’s the worst job you ever had?
The worst job I ever had was being a bill collector. Lol, I hated every five days of it.
