Before this once laid off single mom, Kristin Scott—founder of Gifts From A Virgo, hit it big with her candle business, she admits to being a lost person at one point in her life.
In April 2012, in a moment of divine intervention, feeling overworked, underpaid, and miserable, the single mother was laid off from her job when the idea of starting a candle business came to her.
Kristin hails from a small city plagued with violence. Killings occur almost daily and while growing up around the violence, she admits to being the chick who would throw down in a heartbeat if you just looked at her wrong.
In an exclusive with XoNecole, the Youngstown, Ohio native mentioned that her candle business is probably the one thing that saved her life.
“My business has allowed me to grow and mature so much, and I’ve been able to have a better relationship with God. I was a lost person at one point in my life. My business, this is my everything right now. I put my all into this. I dedicate myself to this everyday of my life.” “If that ain’t God, I don’t know what is…”
Well, today, things are different for this once single mom. Now, she is a positive beacon of hope for her community. People in her hometown now view her as a heroine of sorts. Kristin told XoNecole, “I’ve grown so much to the point where I’m so positive that I could shake any negativity off. I have too much to lose at this point in my life.”
Just three years after launching her candle business, Kristin has opened up her first store front in her hometown, Youngstown, Ohio. Read the entire exclusive: “This Ohio Native Went From Being Laid Off To Doubling Her Income With Her Own Candle Business”
