A company begins with hard work and your whole heart, and that's just what I am doing.
Big and Bold
I had an idea. A big one. To start a business.
One simple product is what I was going
to need, but there's a second part, to figure
out what it's going to be. I questioned
myself, "What is small, perfect for a gift
and a lovely home decor?" Answer: Candles.
Wonderful to give and receive, plus you can
personalise it with your favourite candle scent.
I've been too caught up with everything else I didn't get to tell
you a bit about myself. My name is Kathryn Miles Bauer and I
am nine years old. I have had a lot of experience with businesses
before. I have done bakeries and camps to get an idea of what
a business is and what the steps are. My favorite camp of all time is Break into Business. I'm into writing, baking, projects, and especially business. I have been into business since I was seven years old, when I started my first lemonade stand and bake sale.
I like the activity of business because you work hard and learn new things in life.
My company so far contains three simple things:
- Curiosity & Hope.
- Ambition & Fun.
- Help & Support.
My candles are handmade, thoughtful and eco friendly. These candles are made with all natural ingredients that are good for the environment. I hope, in the future, my company will expand to more than just candles and also contribute to the world.
Why did I choose business of all the hobbies I could've chose from? Well one spring break, I had the opportunity to attend an amazing business camp called "Break into Business" I had an old friend there and two other partners to work with. I realized I'm more of an independent person who likes to crreate things and make my own products.
I decided to do a bake sale in my yard and start small, it paid off by all the learning experience I got from camp. After that, I wanted to go bigger. I was going to launch my business at the Atlanta Ice cream Festival. Over 10,000 people were going to be there. This was the next big step. I organized this website, the plan, the budget, and the area with a little help from my family. In my heart, I know this is the right thing to do.
