People always ask me how I became the “Candy Lady”. I immediately giggle. I’m not sure really. It was one of those late night awakenings when yes, the stars align and everything falls into place.
I knew when I was in business school that I wanted to start my very own company. I admired my parents and what they had accomplished in the candy business. But graduation brought with it some major self-discovery and some serious question asking. Something about teaching and my summers as a camp counselor kept calling me in. And so eventually, I listened. I left business school and hopped right on over to teachers college, moved to London, England and discovered I was far more creative and independent than I ever gave myself credit for.
Two years passed and it was time to move home. Being far from family seemed silly. Life is too short to be away from the ones you love. And that’s right about the time when this happened:
So, how does this equation equal candy you ask? I really have no idea! But in my heart it all seems to make a whole lot of sense.
And so here we are, creating smiles and living a very ‘sweet’ life! Yes, I love my job.
