Balance & Our Health!

 

 

As a women business owner I’m well aware of the struggles women face in the workplace or while running their own business.  The demands that society places on us can be daunting, to say the least.   I’ve met some incredible women over the years, had mentors that were very successful, not only in business but in other aspects of life as well.  What I’ve noticed about the most successful women I know is that they have a common thread that seems to run through them all.  I define it as balance.
They have a balanced approach to life even when faced with challenges, major health issues such as breast cancer or other obstacles.  In honor of  Breast Cancer Awareness month, here at Laguna Candles we've created our new, big “Why” and we call it “Enlightened Living”.  As our business continues to grow and we embrace the concept of becoming a global brand, I've come to realize that to be enlightened is a true anchor point for me and my company.
To be enlightened means to be healthy, balanced, thoughtful, and considerate of others. It also means being patient, humble, loving & kind. Especially when the world says you should be otherwise.  Find time to breathe, to walk, to meditate, travel and enjoy your love ones while you can.  I guarantee the world and all its challenges will wait.

1. Loyalty

Private label candles is one way to build customer loyalty from people who like your products. High quality brands with limited accessibility to a large customer base help you gain loyalty from core customers. Your customers feel attached to your brand and product.

2. High Margins

Private label Branding is one way to separate yourself from competitors. One of the greatest attributes of private labels is that you inherently have an exclusive right to sell the products. If you market the brand well and create demand for it.  This contributes to your ability to charge premium prices.

3. Wholesaler

With the right quantity  you could operate as a wholesaler of your brand and offer limited access to other retailers who pay you premium acquisition costs for the right to carry your Private Label Candles This not only generates more income, but it also spreads the exposure of your brand even further. A relationship with a high volume re-seller can lead to more customers buying your Private label Candles.

Buy Local! Why buy locally Owned? 5 Good Reasons!

What an honor it is to be featured in the March issue of Orange Coast Magazine. There are times when I feel that our family owned local business Laguna Candles is not seen by the many. When we received that call from Astgik Khatchatryan from Orange Coast Magazine, we were honored. Take a look at Laguna Candles Featured Article and get to know our story. 

Now let's address the Benefits Of Buying Local!

Why should I buy Local you might ask? Here are five good reasons:

1. It helps create jobs:  One of the reasons why I hire local artisans to make our Heirloom Artisan Candles is simply because I sincerely want to do my part to support local artist in my community here in Laguna beach. Small Local business are the largest employers nationally and within our community.

2. You get get better as well as personable service:  Here at Laguna Candles we stand behind our product 100%. If you are not happy return it! Local business often hire people with a better understanding of their product.

3.It reduces Environmental Impact: Locally owned business can make more local purchases requiring less transportation. Which ultimately contributes to less congestion and pollution.

4. It allows you to invest in your community: Local businesses are owned by people who live in the community! We have lived in our community, for 20 years  and owned our Laguna Beach Business Laguna Candles, since 2003! Local businesses are less likely to leave and more invested in the community's future. We have so created many Private Label Candles for businesses California.

5. It gives the local business the opportunity  to support themselves and the community: Several studies have shown that when you buy from an independent, locally owned business, rather than a nationally owned businesses, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers and farms -- continuing to strengthen the economic base of the community. I hope you have a willingness to get to know our brand, and I would love to get to know and support yours!
