Some of the best things in life are started on a wing and a prayer, often out of necessity.
In 2003 I was in the middle of a serious life change. So when a chef suggested that I make candy professionally I was frankly amused. Sure – I had made Bourbon Balls for family and friends since I was a little girl. But make candy professionally??
After a decade as a flight attendant with the airlines, I had been seriously hurt. It ended my career. There were years of healing and trying new careers on for size. My favorite – the National Educator for an Aromatherapy company had abruptly ended when the company sold. Prayer and Meditation, along with Aromatherapy were the foundations in my healing process and I was devastated at losing another career.
I shared the conversation with the chef, with friends. Then, all around me, things begin to happen. First, someone came to me – Had I started my company yet? If I had, she had an order for me. A large one. Another friend gave me leads on packaging. A website was created. Synchronicities and Miracles were around every corner and I knew I was being divinely lead.
As I write this in 2015, I’m amazed at how far this little company has come and I just love it. I have many, many people to thank for their help along the way. And I am so grateful!
Blessings to you and yours,
