From technique to troubleshooting, basics and beyond, learn everything you need to know to start making professional candles!
That was me 22 years ago!
I practiced and tested, sold at markets and grew, melted and played and sold more until I had a store, and another store, and another and another! If I can do it, so can you!
"Why take this course? I’ve watched a thousand videos already!"
It's simple. Learning and testing take time and money.
Or it could be a new adventure in retirement. It might be that a person's health dictates what their day will look like, or daycare costs mean working from home.
Maybe it’s time for a small business that fits your life and restores your creative soul.
That was the case for me… a sick child meant my normal 9 to 5 workday wasn’t possible. But look where I took it!
And I have helped hundreds of folks – moms, nurses, hair dressers, boutique owners, bakers, florists, horse trainers, craft beer makers…. biker dudes! Every walk of life, and each niche as interesting as the next. Those with physical limitations have found both peace and pride…accident survivors, cancer patients, those suffering from depression to fibromyalgia. All ages and walks of life … hipsters, retirees, even an eleven year old! And the obvious … candleholics, healers, aromatherapists, soap makers, beekeepers, brides-to be and artists. Each of them, successful in their journey.
All of them wanted to learn how to make a candle PROPERLY, and in LESS TIME wasting LESS MONEY.
To do this, you need the ground rules. Plain and simple facts.
I will take you through all of the steps you need to know to get started, from choosing the right supplies to colours and scents, to pouring your own candles.
