While many are in vacation mode during the summer months, we always suggest that you do not take a vacation from your business or take away time to start your business. If your goal is to make and sell candles for the holidays, then it is very important that you start the process now. It will take you time to choose the proper wax, select the proper wick and start identifying which fragrances to offer. The summer months are an excellent time to begin and perfect this process.
During the summer, many suppliers are somewhat slower and you can have more access to the technical people during this time period. Orders can be shipped in more timely time period which can help you do your testing faster. Sometimes the best sales are held by suppliers to ensure people purchase products during the summer months. Use all of these advantages from the supplier to your favor as you start your company or look to grow.
