Meet The Maker: Tessa Clancy from Sweet Soaperie
We're back this week with another Meet The Maker blog post! This week, we are featuring a wonderful woman from Miramichi, New Brunswick, who makes the most amazing bath bombs you've ever seen - and smelled!
What inspired you to start your own business?
My inspiration to start my own business was my love for making soap. As a child, my mother always made her own handmade soap. As I got older I got brave enough to try it myself and it seemed as though there was a market for it. I got messages that people would like to purchase some of my creations and it all started from there.
What are some of the challenges you face as an entrepreneur?
Some of the challenges I face as an entrepreneur is to stay organized with taxes, purchases, and invoicing. As we grow, we find this difficult to handle sometimes through our busy season. QuickBooks really comes in handy!
What advice would you give to others looking to become makers or creators?
The best advice that I can give someone who wants to start their own business is to believe in yourself, make sure there’s a profit in what you’re doing, never under pay yourself, and know your worth.
