A couple of years ago I was introduced to Coal and Canary candles through a friend. I loved the scent and I loved the wick on the candles as it crackled like a fireplace. So I may have gone and bought a few for myself.
Little did I realize at the time that these candles were made by Canadians, Amanda Buhse and Tom Jansen. I can officially say after having interviewed Amanda that she is one of the nicest women you’ll meet. So, it’s not hard to believe that this rock star business was born out of friendship and a couple of glasses of wine.
Amanda shares how she and Tom launched Coal and Canary, how they got their candles in to the Oscar and Grammy gift bags, the hardest parts of entrepreneurship, working with your best friend, and the best advice she’s ever learned.
And… Amanda was so kind to join me in doing a giveaway! At noon on July 11th, head to @coalandcanary on Instagram to enter to win some gorgeous candles and one spot on Stress Less in 90 Days Group Coaching. I believe the giveaway will be live for 48 hours so don’t miss out.
