Women in Business

This past weekend, I hosted a pop-up that included my business, Bath Body Candle Moments, as well as LuLaRoe with my friend Jenn Rivera, and Origami Owl with my friend Sandra D’Auria.  We met on the Vine Vendor Network; a group I created about a year ago to help local small businesses connect and collaborate with one another.

During this pop-up Valentine’s Shopping Social, some of my best local customers stopped by to shop with me, but they were also introduced to Jenn’s and Sandra’s businesses. We built a relationship with each other’s clientele which aided in growing our own.

I never imagined how much fun I would have doing a small show. We laughed all day long, taking photos, trying each other’s products; it was the most fun I’ve had in a long time.

What made the whole experience so much greater was how business brought us together. We’re three women, each will full-time day jobs, but each with full-time entrepreneurial ventures, as well. We each complement each other’s business because we share the same core values: Collaborate, Inspire, Empower, Achieve.

“Women in Business” means so much to me these days. It means we can and we do. It means stepping outside of the expectation that we only have the ability to emotional. It means stomping on the stereotype that we only look to cut each other down. When women support one another in business, we’re unstoppable.

I was at dinner with some friends when my phone alarm went off at 8:00 p.m.; it has rung at the same time for the last 14 years. People look at me strangely, and sometimes it has been awkward, but that alarm has saved me from myself, reminding me that I have to take an … Continue reading The Six Wellness Alarms You Need to Program Into Your Phone Right Now

Brewsome Bar Soap: Making Soap With Coffee, Beer, Wine, and Tea

June 08, 2017

A normal cold-process soap recipe calls for distilled water as one of the main ingredients. But what happens when you decide to kick your water to the curb? Apparently, brew soap is what happens. I was tired of the same distilled water base for my soap recipes, so I decided to see what the outcome … Continue reading Brewsome Bar Soap: Making Soap With Coffee, Beer, Wine, and Tea
