Meet Amber Williams of ScentsXchange

Today we’d like to introduce you to Amber Williams.

Amber, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started ScentsXchange three years ago after starting my first Human Resources position and realizing it wasn’t a good fit. I was enrolling for my MBA, balancing being a single mom, and making next to nothing. I found myself overwhelmed, overworked, and stressed out.

As you could probably imagine, I never made time for myself. And to be honest, I didn’t even know how to make time for myself or what self-care looked like. I just knew that I was stressed. And I was tired. It’s not until I realized that taking care of me was the solution to my problem – and what’s crazy is that it didn’t take any extra time.

I developed a line of all-natural self-care products that relieve stress, provide relaxation, and improves your quality of sleep. I also help moms, wives, and entrepreneurs to incorporate self-care into their everyday schedule using the time they already have.

I believe that self-care is very important and it’s how you become more effective in your everyday routine.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has not been a smooth road. Some of the struggles I’ve dealt with along the way were time management, consistency, and building organic traffic. Running a business isn’t easy especially when you are a parent and working a corporate job. All of my challenges tie together, but everything starts with time management. Once I was able to get that under control, the rest fell into place.

Please tell us about ScentsXchange.
We make all-natural handmade self-care products, but we are known for our luxury candles. We strive for you to incorporate self-care into your everyday routine and we provide self-care consultations to help you incorporate self-care into the time you already have. Our products provide a relaxation so that everyday is your self-care day. As a company, we are proud to know that we are helping our customers be more productive and effective. It’s easy to get bogged down or in a routine that is not effective.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Just being able to be a kid and have no worries. Life was easy!
