About the Author
"Suzanne sent me this manuscript for my opinion, after reading it, I realized that this is one book that can truly help those who always wanted to show their creative side and rise to the top by creating something unique that sells. But I didn't know that my daughter got a hold of it and read the entire book, I found out when I saw our garage was being set up as her new soap making factory!." - Mary B. Johnson
I am Suzanne Carpenter; I always had a dream about making beautiful soaps and candles and have a successful business where people would see my soaps on store shelves and know right away that it came from me. I was able to make that into a reality, well for the most part, other than the personal recognition part.
Thought the process was extremely tedious and difficult especially since I didn't know much about starting a business. Only passion I ever had was to make beautiful soaps and boy! I made some great ones. But soon after starting to build my business I realized, making soap is totally different than making the soap making into a full blow business.
The learning curve was steep, and I was determined to make a go of it even if that meant I would have to sacrifice whatever I had. I took me two long years to finally be able to break through all the walls and see success. I build my business from zero to a 6 figure business in 26 months which is little over two years' time.
By then I figured out the Ins and Outs of this business and had a great distribution channel set up who were helping to market my soap all over the country. My soaps were mostly selling in boutique shops, some TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Home Goods and even in few Whole Foods market.
One day I got a call from an agent who was representing a name brand soap company and they expressed interest in buying my business. After three months of hard negotiation and planning, I was able to sell them my company for a good price. Due to the NDA agreement, I cannot disclose their name or how much I sold my company for, but let's just say I am happy and content. Now I can pursue other dreams I have. But I can't start another soap manufacturing company in next seven years as that is the Non-Compete Agreement I had to sign with them.
Since I can't make soap anymore, I have decided to share my "know how" so you don't have to go through what I have gone through and waste two years trying to make a go of it.

It is published in haste I think as there are many gramatical and spelling errors. It is poorly written, and even more poorly published. It is only for American soap makers really as alot of what she says in this just does not heed anything remotely useful for British folk.
Thanks for nothing. What i needed to know was actually a quick google away and would of saved me the price i paid for this book (which was more then its worth).
