Meet Jacqueline Kuntzman

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jacqueline Kuntzman.

Hi Jacqueline, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I am a mom and a full-time student. I also work part-time. When covid hit, it was hard everything stopped kids didn’t go to school and all classes went to online. The dental office I worked at closed and so I needed something to make extra money so I thought hey, start a business. At first, I thought soaps because with covid washing hands and soap was a demand. Then I was like, well people are home a lot now and they are doing stuff to work on their homes and candles are a nice smell and decor. So that’s how I got started and I love what I do and never looked back. My plan is to run a business and still go to school. One day I wasn’t to own a storefront and work in a hospital as a radiation therapist. Thats what I’m going to school for.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Covid kids school being a mom life in general has been a struggle. But I’m strong and I bet addiction and being a single teen mom so I can do this too.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I’m most proud of the fact I didn’t stop. I didn’t let negative remarks from family and friends telling me I can’t do this affect me. My kids see a mom who works hard loves them and goes to school and I teach them nothing can stop you if you work for it. I also even added more then candles and soaps to my business. I sell online and I go to events to sell so I started making accessories and cups and other things…I have always loved art and being creative and I can do this now with my business.

Shameless plug. Etsy CandlesSoapsMd check me out sometime.

Do you any memories from childhood that you can share with us?
My childhood I don’t like to talk about. My parents are wonderful but we grew up broke and lived in the city and as a family went thru a lot.
