Conversations with Camelia Layne

Today we’d like to introduce you to Camelia Layne.

Hi Camelia, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
My company was started from a desire to create a candle that truly filled my home with its long-lasting scent. What began as a hobby quickly grew into something greater as Cami Candles was featured at many pop-up shops all over Maryland and Philadelphia. Growing up in the islands I was exposed to many different fruits that gave off amazing scents and I wanted my candles to capture those fragrances.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Not at all, it took my three years to get my candles to where I wanted them, a lot of trial and error and quitting. I still struggle to hit my sales goals at times but I won’t get up because I have a great product.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I just started a new job as a Service Coordinator for those with disabilities. Before this, I worked as a Registered Behavioral Technician working with kids with autism. Growing up with my grandmother I was always her little helper so I get great joy out of helping people. I majored in Psychology in College.

What sets me apart from others is that I am very genuine and supportive. My friends and family can always rely on me for anything!

How do you think about luck?
I would say I am lucky to have an amazing family and husband that support everything I do!
