Makers on the Move (Episode 2: September 2017)

Our members are always on the move. There is no grass growing under their feet. They have a plan, and they are executing it, regardless of what anyone else is doing. It is my pleasure to tell you what they are doing, not only so you can buy their products, but so you can be inspired to maximize your potential through small business ownership.

Recently, we brought you Makers doing awesome things in New York, Arizona, and New Jersey. This week, we bring you inspiration from California, Wisconsin, and Maryland. See anyone you know?

Celebrating 14 years in business!

It's awesome when we can celebrate a member who has been in a business a year or two. Every single day is worth celebrating, right? But it's not every day that we celebrate a member who has been in business for over a decade. Today, we do that!

Lori Nova Endres and her team at The Nova Studio are celebrating 14 years of success teaching people how to make their own bath and bodycare products, and start businesses in the field. The company was once located in California with a physical studio. Today, The Nova Studio is totally virtual, brining you opportunities to learn from the comfort of your own home.

Check out The Nova Studio's website here, and enter to win some great stuff … including a signed copy of my book, Making Aromatherapy Creams and Lotions, at this link!

Tonight at Burlap & Lace Marketplace in Waukesha, Wisconsin, Tiffany Sessoms of IMBUED in North East, Maryland will be doing free product demos. If you're in the area, look for their booth!

Donna Maria, Indie Business Network

A new candle Store in California!

Who says retail is dying? Ha!!! Not our member, Tennessee Viduya. Tennessee, a flight attendant from San Francisco, has opened 676 Candles Co. retail store there. Tennessee says that her position as a flight attendant gives her opportunities to meet more people than usual from all over the world, and she turns this inspiration into fragrances. Some of their collections represent different cities like Maui, Austin, and Seattle. Maybe yours will be next!

Visit the 676 retail store if you're in the area, at Westfield San Francisco Centre, 3rd Floor (Nordstrom Side), at
865 Market St. If you can't get to San Francisco, visit them online, and be sure to check out their subscription box and custom candle options.
