I hope this newsletter finds you well. Today, I want to share a personal story with you about the struggles of balancing life as a candle maker, mom, wife, and boss.
As some of you may know, I started my own candle making business out of my Postpartum period and passion for creating. However, being a mom of a now almost two year old child and a wife, I soon found it difficult to balance all my roles. With candle orders and markets pouring in and deadlines at work to meet, I would often work long hours, leaving little time for my family.
I know that many of you can relate to this struggle, whether it's juggling work and family responsibilities, or finding time to pursue your passions while still maintaining a healthy work-life balance. It's not easy, but it's important to recognize that we are not alone.
Through hard work, determination, and the support of my loved ones, I learned to prioritize my time better and set boundaries, making sure to allocate quality time for my family while still meeting my business and career obligations. It wasn't easy, but I learned to manage my workload more efficiently and delegate tasks where possible.
As a result, my business continues to thrive, and my family remains my top priority. I realized that it's okay to ask for help, and that being a working mom doesn't mean sacrificing your family or your dreams.
I hope my story serves as a reminder that we are all capable of achieving our goals, no matter how difficult the road may seem. Let's continue to support each other and push forward in pursuit of our passions and dreams.
Thank you for being a part of my journey and for supporting my business. I couldn't do it without you.
