Exploring Life & Business with Talithia Bell

Today we’d like to introduce you to Talithia Bell. 

Talithia, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Talithia Co was created from one candle. My mom passed away when I was a little girl. I found myself missing my mother as an adult. I started thinking about what I could create to help her memory comfort me. That is when I thought of creating a candle, not knowing what fragrance the candle would be. I started thinking of my mom’s pound cakes that she would bake, and it struck me “that was it”! I created a pound cake soy candle just for myself. My sister experienced the candle and stated that I should sell them, so I did just that. Now, currently, we have a variety of fragrances. Talithia Co not only has soy candles, but we also carry body products such as whipped body butter. We are a minimal, clean ingredient business that thrives off providing a natural product. Our business wants to create a memorable experience for all of our customers through our products. We are an e-commerce business, and we also participate in pop-up shops. 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Talithia Co’s journey has been and still is a struggle, In many areas. You are faced with many obstacles as a small business owner. As a business owner, I work long hours  that would leave me feeling very exhausted at the end of the day. Many of the operations within the business are performed by the owner. When starting the business, I did not know how much work would go into a business. Learning the World of an entrepreneurship is hard. I had this perfect vision of what running a small business would look like and boy did I get an awakening fast. Making a profit I learned depends on how the business is marketed, and if you have not set up marketing tools for your business, there will be no sells. What was learned through all of the struggles is that if you have a passion for your business you can get through the tough days. 

We’ve been impressed with Talithia Co., but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Talithia Co is a natural body product and soy candle business. We specialize in clean natural body care and clean scented soy candles. We are known for our unique scented soy candles and are rich whipped body butters. I am most proud of my whipped body butters. Our body butters are created for all skin types, so if you are a person who struggles with allergies to nuts, our body butters will not interfere with this. What sets Talithia Co apart from other body care or soy candle businesses is that we aim to create an experience for all of our customers. We are hoping that our customers create an experience when using our products that will be memorable. Maybe it could be lighting your candle for the first time, and it takes you back to your childhood, or when you open your candle for the first time and beautiful fragrance you experience, or maybe you just want to feel happy. We want our products to help the customers with this. Through fragrance, touch, and self-care. We would like all of our customers to feel that they have done something extra special for themselves or for someone else. 

Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
What truly makes me happy is seeing someone else happy. I love to hear compliments from customers after they have purchased a product. This makes me so happy knowing that a business and a product that I have created is helping bring joy to someone else’s life.
