  • It would depend on the quality of your product. Do you have any prior experience in doing this?

  • it depends on alot of factors: cost, ability, do you have customrers in mind. If you are asking would I buy that? no because money is tight so I cant afford any extras, but also because I woud never want to burn it if it had a nice pic in it. good luck mom:)

  • Honestly, unless you have a demanding crew of people now and such..probably not. The candle companies from what I gather from friends who do them are NOT doing well, it is a tough economy for more STUFF. ANd the competition is steep, Gold Canyond, Bella Mia, Scentsy, Yankee etc.
    FInd a Business that is Cheap and In High Demand for..Thats what I looked for and found a service , that everyone in america needs and I made a FT income working 20 hours a week now from home with all the kids with me

  • It is tough to start any business, you would need a market for it, where would i sell them?

    I work from home with a reliable company that has been around for 25 years if u are looking for something from home!
