This week's Conversation Series post detailed how much I adore Christmas. It also revealed that it never used to be this way - and that the festive season used to stress me out like you wouldn't believe (you can read the full post here). Part of that stress was due to Christmas shopping; not knowing what to get, going into stores without a game plan or budget, and having to end up stuck at the shops on Christmas Eve.
I’ve made a few candles in my time at home and while it may be fun and games to create a couple for yourself, turning that passion into a fully-fledged business is an epic undertaking.
It’s not for the faint hearted, that’s for sure, and it’s something that - like any small business venture - takes loads of determination and a lot of guts.
