critical elements to success

I love the stats in this audiobook, they definitely gave me the itch to get started and get my piece of the pie!
I already have a small business making wax melts and some beeswax candles. I never imagined it would be anything more than a hobby.

Now that i have been through the pandemic and have seen what its like to depend on an employer to get paid I am going to put in the effort to start my business professionally!

The bonus of 11 free and easy steps to triple sales has already given me a boost!
Can't wait to see my growth over the next few months.

Great Information!

I loved this book and got so much information I thought I knew but didn't! The author shared so much helpful information and the narrator was by far my favorite of any audio book I've ever listened to; made it so easy to listen I will probably listen again. I'm a bit frustrated that I can't find the pdf that is supposed to be available, but besides that I have no complaints at all and have also downloaded the 2nd book, Candle Making Business 102.

I am impressed

Enjoyed what I have listened to. The audio version of this book was very useful to me, it helped me to understand a bit more about candle making and the manner in which the information is being read leaves no doubt in my mind about the subject matter, it is easy to follow and I can actually complete it within the given time while making notes.

Great idea, great book

I found this book very useful, and it can be used as a guide to starting a candle business. There is a lot of information that will guide you and teach you even if you have very little knowledge of making them and marketing. It is an excellent idea for a home-based business, and my wife is going to give it a try. It could easily make you some extra income that could help to pay for some bills!

Let's make some freaking candles!

This is action oriented and I love it! I honestly got the book because I've only been thinking that candles could be a fun hobby that maybe makes a little extra money. I got the book more as research to see how difficult it would be but now I'm going to go all in and really see if I can make a brand and a business!

5* advice for even an experienced candle maker

The first half of the book wouldn’t be so valuable if you already make candles, however, the second section about marketing is really useful!

This book was everything I needed. The author took time and research to provide all the necessary tools, and more. Although i purchased an audible version, the information is clear. Worth every penny, well done!

Bought this for my wife as she's been looking to start a candle making business, and had been feeling intimidated by the business side of it. Candle Making Business 101 is the perfect guide for those getting into candle making, and breaks down the relevant considerations and strategies for successfully starting up, and running a candle-making business long term.

After listening, my wife has been able to start the early stages of her business confidently, and has everything lined up for herself as things take off. Would definitely recommend for anyone trying to get into candle making!

A new side hustle!

Highly recommend this audiobook if you'd like to start making some money on the side candle making! This book outlines EVERYTHING that you need to know about the business, save actually doing the candle making for you. It's very specific with regard to the important parts of the process. There are also many new ideas that I had not known beforehand, which makes it a good thing I found this audiobook. And it even helps you with marketing ideas! Great audiobook and narration!
