I have recently begun to create some stock to open up a new small business in hand made candles and soaps.
To start with I have been concentrating on making scented candles to sell over the Christmas period, but in the new year I will also start to develop hand made soaps (all of which will be sustainable, free of harsh chemicals and contain amazing skin loving ingredients)
Once I have created enough stock to sell online on my Etsy store then I will blog about the different products and gifts for sale, and include the link to the store so that you can order them online.
As with any new business, there is an initial start up cost that needs to be considered, you need to have enough money to buy your equipment and ingredients/materials in order to create enough stock to start selling your products.
The key to having a successful business is to be unique and original and most importantly to not give up, be persistent and to not let anything get in the way of your long term goals!
