When I started Life Is Sweet, my life was a mess. But when life handed me lemons, I decided to make lemonade! I had a dream of creating a happy place for myself and to serve others. My little candy store had to work! I just kept reminding myself... Life Is Sweet.
When you start a business, the odds are stacked against you, but I knew I could do it. My children grew up in this candy store. They learned to count change and serve customers. they were my first employees! We have learned, struggled and persevered. Even through a pandemic.
Life Is Sweet is still here and we are growing!
It's been 15 years, and it's still super fun to be in this happy retail game. My children are all grown up and I am now a Grammy.
In 2020, I brought in a partner, Shannon, who has three children. They are the next generation of kids growing up in the candy store. :)
It is good to know your business means so much to people. We share #candylove every day. And continue to find new ways to connect families with sweets and candy. We are only going to get better at it! That's because we spend a lot of time listening and learning from our customers - our amazing "candy family".
Pretty cool, right? :)
