Today we’d like to introduce you to Chanthini Harrell.
Hi Chanthini, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
What started out as a hobby, creating body products free of chemicals and dyes, became a business in a very short period of time. Taking the time, and care to produce spa quality products quicky caught on with friends and family. Once this took on a life of its own, it was time to expand. Emerald Escape Spa Products was born. The best compliment to spa products was creating candles to deepen the escape. Over the course of a few short years, the line has over 10 products, handcrafted in small batches to ensure consistency and quality with the number 1 rule being, no toxic ingredients.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
When turning a hobby into a full-blown business, struggles are a part of the journey. From business insurance, managing social media, keeping in touch with customers, shipping expectations, growing the customer base while being employed full time, my priorities became clear. I had to adapt to the road by effectively managing my time, staying ahead of demand and keeping supplies stocked. Preparedness is key but every business will have highs and lows. This makes the goal worthwhile.
As you know, we’re big fans of Emerald Escape Spa Products. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
Aside from creating spa quality products that create an escape from the everyday. We also encourage self-care via our Wellness Wednesday live Q&A with brands that align with our mission, a self-help guide, meditation and journaling. Our approach is all around wellness and this sets us apart from other spa product providers. Our biggest accomplishment to date is when students of our Candle Business Masterclass begin their own candle business and thank us for our professionalism and guidance.
To continue expanding the brand and products and helping students become successful business owners.
Starting May 8th through August, you can find our Candles, Carpet Refresher and Create Your Wax Melt Kits at the Seminole Towne Center, located in Sandford, FL, brought to you by the Absolutely Anything Essential Gift Shop.
