1. What’s your name & Your Company Name: Kristi Varner and Payton Varner. The Soy Candle Connection
2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business? I started making candles for myself and took one to work with me and the next thing I knew co-workers were wanting to buy them and customers started wanting to order them. My motivation was to be able to not have to rely on my job. I never know from year to year if it will be there. My daughter has joined me this year making candles for her SAE (Supervised Agricultural Experience) for FFA. I am very proud of her as she is going into the agricultural field after graduation. I have been making candles for over six years.
3. What products do you make and sell? We make candles, melts, and soaps. We offer over 150 scents.
4. What are your business goals? My business goal for this year is to be able to not have to rely on my job.
