" I am actually making money with my candles!"

I just wanted to thank you for your books on candle making. When I first began looking into making my own candles I was only looking for a way to save money on Christmas presents. Now I actually know how to make money with my candles! I can't thank you enough!!

"As a former student of Sarah's"

As a former student of Sarah's "Candle Making for Fun & Profit" workshop I can say that she has a natural gift for teaching this hobby. When I heard that she was putting this system together I emailed her immediately and insisted that I get the first copy. After going through the entire system I have to say one thing, "Girl, you need to raise your price!"

"These book makes it fun and easy..."

"This is, by far, the most easy-to-read candle making guide I have seen. I have checked out books from the library and found articles online, but I swear, it seems you need a degree in chemistry and hundreds of dollars of equipment to even think about making a simple candle, let alone learning to sell them. I've dug through so many websites on candle making and was about fed up. These books make it fun and easy! It is so nice to have all of the material available to easily go back to and refference. So far I have been having so much fun making different candles I haven't got around to selling them yet. But when I do, I am happy I have eveything I need to get started.

"...I had no idea how easy it could be... "

I just bought your books and am impressed. I am not new to making candles but I never put effort into trying to sell my candles before. I must admit when I first came across your books I was a little skeptical but figured with your 100% guarantee I did not have anything to lose so I said what the heck, and I am so glad I did. I only wish I had the information earlier because I had no idea how easy and profitable it could really be! Thank you so much.
Aimee from Jackson, MI
