In my case this is the main reason that Swede Farm Naturals started. At the end of 2006 they were looking for vendors for the conference and mom wondered if a friend of ours who made soap would like to be a vendor. Mom hates making phone calls, so she had me do it (I had to call the lady anyways, so why not kill two birds with one stone?) So, I made the phone call never really know how it would change my money making future. lol
I asked her and she replied with "No, but you can! Here's how you do it. And while you are at it why don't you try candles and lotions? Oh, and I have enough stuff to get you started!"
When I was talking to mom about it she thought I should also add a "mommy and baby" line, a balm line, and a pampering line. It also went like this. "If you are going to do candles you should do Soy candles, they are the best and my favorite! I think you should look for scents that smell like _____, try and match you candles to you soaps and lotions, and make gift baskets!"
To this day I am SOOOO Glad that I did not look at my list of products that I had to make until I had them bought, made, packaged, and labeled!
Well, after that fast and surprising start, I am still going one year latter and attended my second conference. All the midwives loved it (even though I did have to do a little correcting "No, this is MY business! The dairy is the family's and the soaps are mine, when I get married and move out I am taking it with me. :D ) and I had a very enjoyable time. :D
Now, we will have to wait and see if I will be there next year in Austin, like so many of them wanted me to. :D
