Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in candle-making but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Asia Fogle, Owner of Her Candle Company, located in Orangeburg, SC, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

Our highly scented candles are hand-poured in individual batches, ensuring a quality product every time – no mass-produced products here! We use only premium fragrance oils that smell true to life – no fake chemical smell with our products. All of our candles are made using natural soy wax, natural cotton wicks, phthalate-free fragrance oils, and no dyes.

Just a bomb a*ss woman, making candles, raising beautiful girls & helping them & women like yourself understand that there's no limit to what we, as women, can do! 30ish old single mom of two girls.

With the ultimate goal of becoming a full-time entrepreneur, I am extremely happy to say that as of March 2022, I am a full-time entrepreneur. From local markets to renovating a 1980 Shasta Camper to turning my business mobile, I'm always busy while trying to navigate life. Motherhood, entrepreneurship, & growing as a woman.

Leaving my full-time job in March 2022 to run my business full time.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
