In today’s stressful and busy world Jay Daniel is hoping that her products will help customersrelax, unwind and realize the importance of self care.
“As a hardworking and busy mom of two I realized the importance of not just taking care of your family but essentially practicing self care. Oftentimes we become consumed with daily activities and neglect time for ourselves /relationships,” Daniell told ANN in an interview.
Rose and Candles, which is operated by Daniel who is a nurse by profession, has been operational for about two years now and has products which enhance the relaxation time in the comfort of the customers homes.
“I make handmade scented Candles…that are paraben and phthalate free. Bath soaks with rejuvenating organic ingredients, great for a relaxing soak, full body soak or otherwise… I sell embroidered robes and lubricating massage oils,” she explained.
Daniel stated that while the entrepreneurial journey has been a positive one, it has its occasional ups and downs.
She explained that she is able to hand craft 95% of her products, however getting them into big retail stores is a challenge because of competitive price points of bigger brands and the rising
cost of material.
Despite that Daniel says she enjoys working at vendor markets where she gets to interact with her customers.
“I enjoy vendor markets because I get to interact with my customers and I get to listen to the stories of why and how they use my items . It is especially exciting to meet and greet repeat customers.”
And, while Daniel thinks success is relative, she considers herself and her business successful.
“I consider my business a successful one. My reviews speak for themselves. I have not only grown from a business standpoint but self development has been a great asset. Success to me is relative. If you are at the desired level you wish to be, completing your targets and clearing your
goals, you are successful,” the young entrepreneur pointed out.
As for other small businesses, Daniel encourages them to do lots of research, be grateful, remain humble on their good days and remember why they started their business on their bad days.
