I’m Speaking at the Tennessee Soap and Candle Meeting!

I am thrilled to announce that I'll be speaking at the Tennessee Soap and Candle Meeting in Nashville, Tennessee, next month. I know it will be an amazing time because I spoke at the event in 2013, 2014, and 2015, and it has never once disappointed.

The Tennessee Soap and Candle Meeting is a one-day gathering of soapmakers and candlemakers from Tennessee and throughout the southeastern United States. While it's an informal gathering, it's always chock full of great people, great fun, and great learning opportunities for Makers and Handmade Entrepreneurs from all walks of life.

This year, as in years past, the speakers are awesome … I am so fortunate that I get to hang out with these ladies! Here is the lineup and topics:
