Today we’d like to introduce you to Chandra Chase.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Chandra. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I was working for a fashion jewelry company and like most fashion jobs the benefits were amazing. However, I was not satisfied with my purpose or day-to-day activities while working there. As a true millennial, I set forth a plan to make up for the lack of “purpose” in my career. I dedicated all my time researching entrepreneurial opportunities and, every article, book, or blog that I read referenced selling handmade goods. I did not want to reinvent the wheel but I wanted a product that would stand out above the rest and speak to who I am.
Candles have given me the opportunity to showcase my creativity freely and benefit financially. Fast forward to now, It’s A Candle Los Angeles, CA has completely taken over my life. I am 100% dedicated to my business, it’s growth, and mastering the art of candle making.
Has it been a smooth road?
I think like most businesses I’ve had my fair share of struggles and adversity. I’ve found my main place of frustration to be in scaling and finding the resources to maintain an efficiently ran business. I’m a true optimist and I try not to fear the unknown, I ask a lot question (sometimes too many) in hopes that what I need will come to me in its own time.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
It’s A Candle is a Los Angeles based candle company specializing in scented soy-based candles. Each candle is meant to create a euphoric experience and coupled the names like “That’s What I Mint” and “Good Wood” they have a tendency to remind you of special moments in life. I really pride myself in the cultivation of the brand. I spent a lot of time trying to find the best way to communicate my brand, and what I’ve done thus far truly makes me happy.
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Oh my, YES Los Angeles is a perfect place to start a business. I moved to LA from Nashville, TN where resource, in general, were very limited, and one’s imagination can go only but so far. Los Angeles has a way of making your dreams come true, I mean of course with hard work a dedication. There’s a certain energy the city exudes, and that same energy creates opportunities like no other.
