WHY SIGN UP TO A ONE TO ONE COURSE WITH ME? I have built my business from scratch combining my job in the city with my love for artisan products. I made this possible with dedication, passion, perseverance and hard work. I found soap and candle making a very therapeutic way to escape from the daily stresses of working in finance and a great life balance. I love helping others achieve their goals, whether you are working full time, part time, retired or unemployed there is always time to learn a new skill and the possibility to run a business that fits into your lifestyle. I am an accountant specialised in budgeting and forecasting with an Honours Degree in International Business Administration. I enjoy teaching others and helping them along their candle making journeys.
