Today we’d like to introduce you to Jeniffer Erickson.
Jeniffer, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Five months ago, I took the determination to educate myself on the candle subject, then to start my own business, ‘Jada Candle’. Here, I make candles with natural oil wax, soya wax (a material derived from plants). This makes the product sustainable, as it comes from a renewable and biodegradable source.
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?
To start was the money, I didn’t have enough money to start a candle business, the supplies, locations, marketing, then I started by posting on social media my first candles that I did for myself, then I started getting orders.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
Due to life circumstances. I had to start over, I had a job from Monday to Friday in a tow truck company office until the pandemic began and they had to close the office, seeing that my only source of income had ended, I began to despair and began to light a candle at home, in the mornings, then in the afternoons and I was indulging in that light and the aroma it transmitted, I started by making them to decorate my house and then without realizing it became my only source of work. Without realizing that emptiness that it had, it was gradually filling up and my life was taking more shape and color, I had forgotten that I loved working and I have found the best job I can have. I am very blessed and fortunate and I am grateful every day for having gone through every cycle of my life that passes to be where I am today.
What matters most to you? Why?
Love, purpose, time and Health! Do not stop believing in your dreams, in the things you want to do; everything is possible, we have everything inside us, a lot of things that we never know are, but there they are. Ready to go out when it’s time to go out, and then life once again surprises us with all the new things we can do because we have one of those many gifts inside. And believe me, each with his own. That’s why I always say cheer up more and don’t hesitate for a second to do what you really like. Life is a box of surprises where you don’t have to miss a single opportunity that comes your way to achieve what you want.
