One of my members, Dawn Shaffer of French Hill Country in Spring Mills, Pennsylvania, designs and creates non-stick candle and soap silicone molds that candle and soap making. Among other shapes, Dawn makes molds in the shape of fruit, hearts, tin cans, pretzels, jelly beans, sunflowers, alphabets and even hot dogs! Today, she shared this short video about why she loves her business.
Chief among the reasons Dawn loves her business is that she has a lifestyle that allows her to be available to her family. (Sound familiar?) And look at (and listen to) the nature Dawn is surrounded by! It's wonderful to be able to raise your children around such beauty, and also train them in the ways of entrepreneurship.
This video is short, but it speaks volumes about today's small and independent business owners, who are defining success on their own terms. I don't have horses or vegetable garden, but other than that, I can completely relate to what Dawn is talking about because I'm living it right now. What about you?
Question: Why do you love your business?
