73What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Hi my name is Amy Kocher at A & W Candles

Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I have been in business for 3 years now.  It all started after I moved back to this area and I had my electric shut off and was begging for help.  It sure was not a good time. But my daughter and I decided to do this to make a little extra money out of my apt to help with bills and to buy food.  So that was my motivation to make sure I was providing for my daughter who at the time was a junior in high school, now she is a thriving college student at Kent State University and I could not be any more proud of her.  Now in 2013 my motivation is to bring awareness to a charity who I hold dear to my heart Alzheimer  Association  of Ohio, my mom who recently passed away a few weeks ago had Dementia a form of Alzheimer Disease she was my rock, stood by me when no one else did, I decided I needed to be her voice in the fight of her life to let everyone know this is a disease that is heartbreaking to those who take care of them and those who have it, it is no fun watching a love one not remember who you are. So I now use my business for my fundraising efforts and make Purple candles to represent Alzheimer Awareness a hope for a cure one day.

What products do you make? I make two sizes of container candles 16oz and 8oz.  I also make melts in the clamshells and 1 and 2 oz containers which you can pop out and be put in any warmer, I also make Air freshener bags called sachet bags.

What are your business goals?   My business goals are not huge as I just work out of my Apt. but one day I hope to be retired from my full time job and do this on a regular basis, I would love to do craft shows and markets but most of them around here are only in fall and with a job its hard to do them all.

What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  I use just about everything from Natures Garden….Joy Wax, Fragrance Oils, cotton wicks, clamshell containers.  My favorite product from Natures Garden is their fragrances there is so many to choose from and I do not have to order from anyone else to get them.
