Erica Werber, founder of Literie Candle,
joins me on today’s episode. She launched what she thought was a pandemic hobby with the help of her kids scent sampling while remote learning and planned to then return to her normal career. However Literie sold over 10,000 candles in just nine months after launching. Literie’s inspiration and branding is like a love letter to NYC with scents for different memories throughout NYC, developed during a time when people couldn’t go out and smell them. Literie candles are created with a vegan soy and coconut wax blend paired with high-quality fragrance oils. They are always sulfate-free, phthalate-free, animal cruelty-free, and non-toxic. Listen in to hear about Erica’s journey launching a new product during the pandemic and the decisions she made that led her business to success.
