The Soy Clever Crew

We are excited to work with you!  Read on to learn more about each of our members!

Welcome!

Our family is working to help our 5 kids learn about entrepreneurship and how to successfully operate a business through hard work and determination.  A very large part of our lessons are that we will not operate with debt!  We want our children to learn that taking a risk on something they are passionate about is possible and achievable with the proper planning.  Each week our business helps the children to learn a new task that is associated with their homeschool education.  Math, science, writing are all part of running a business and makes it much easier for them to put the new knowledge areas to work as they are learning!

Since 2017

We started our R&D in June of 2017 and started selling in September!  Our kids attend most of our vendor events and participate every week in building our brand!

We care about you!

All of our Candles are hand-poured and made from US grown natural Soy Wax!  Our family carefully chooses the seasonally available scents for the candles to ensure that we remain paraffin and phthalate free.  The quality of the candle that we provide you is very important to us.  Our goal is that your candle should leave no wasted wax at the completion of it’s burn.
