Why Candle Making makes Great Business Sense:

Picture of Professional Candle Making School in Thailand & Online
 Candle making is a profitable profession. It enables you to work for yourself in a creative and lucrative business. Many people spend a lifetime in a job which they don’t like, purely for the income.

• It is truly a gift to earn money in a highly creative profession we enjoy doing year on year. Learning a new profession can be done through videos and books but as with any trade, it needs to be taught and studied correctly with a specialist who is actively participating in that profession at the highest level.

• Most businesses can take up to 3 years to return the initial investment and to break into profit. The candle making business has proven a return of investment in under 1 year. 

 From the start after taking the Business Setup Course course, it is possible for 1 person to produce up to 100 candles a day. 

 Highly-guarded candle making formulas can take years to create, yet can be taught in minutes. Once a student knows these secret techniques, his/her own creativity emerges and blossoms.
