We had the good fortune of connecting with Jennifer Kelly and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jennifer, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I think about risks as opportunities to grow and expand to greater heights! Taking risks has played a significant role in not only my business but in overall my life. I remember when I used to be afraid of taking that first step as an entrepreneur. It was totally scary but I managed to face those fears and now I have not only a candle business but a whole brand! Taking risks has helped me in developing more confidence in myself and my business, The risks that I took pushed me in the direction where im living out my dreams and providing amazing valuable products to the world! I promise you it is possible, You have to just take that initial step into that thing you’ve always wanted.

What should our readers know about your business?
Atmozphere candles was started in 2018 by me and my husband, as we were welcoming our son, we wanted to bring in another source of income. After doing much research, I found out that many candles are made with harmful chemicals. With that in mind, we wanted to set our business apart by providing a cleaner candle experience with more natural ingredients. Every candle is made with natural sustainable materials, We utilize a premium coconut & soy wax blend that contains no harmful paraffin. Our wicks are made with 100% cotton and are lead-free. Our fragrances are phthalate and paraben-free. I got to where im at because I never stopped believing in my business and my abilities toward my goals in business. Entrepreneurship is not an easy road. I was funding everything out of pocket which made it so hard at times. I didn’t have money to have someone create a website so I had to learn how to do it myself and I sure did it! love it too. Since I have a background in graphic design I also went ahead and designed my logo and branding materials. Having to do all parts of the business is pretty hard, but so rewarding. learning that there are many resources and people in your family/friends circle that are willing to help sure has taken ease to my mind. Stretching ourselves thin will not help much, so ask for help when you can. Another lesson I have learned is that health and fitness are vital for your life and if you are on the fitness side of life, you will have more energy and clarity of mind. I want the world to know. that you can create your Atmozphere. You are the author of your life, you write every page, every experience you face, You create your ambiance, you create your Atmozphere. We just make amazing candles that help ignite that fire in and around you; Create Your Atmozphere. <3

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Going to vidorras in deep Ellum for some food and drinks! Downtown Dallas is always a vibe!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Oh, where do I even begin, first off I would love to thank The Most High for allowing me to have a vision to work towards. I would love to also include my family & framily and when I say my framily, I mean my friends are family too. The amount of help, belief, support, and faith that I’ve received has been such a blessing. If anyone has ever purchased a candle from me or has supported my business thru word of mouth you’re included. Truly I wouldn’t be able to be and do what I do today if it wasn’t for those that have contributed some type of energy whether that’s sharing, encouraging, or talking about my candles to buying from me. My soul thanks you! Follow me 🙂
