Jake Carnley is the founder of Great Bear Wax Co. and they make some of the most amazing candles you’ll ever smell. Jake started pouring candles in his apartment while he was attending Auburn University in 2013 and since then he’s seen the brand really take off. They’ve been able to get in to some large retailers and he’s hoping to announce partnerships with more stores you’ve definitely heard of very soon. I was curios to hear what Jake’s journey has been like and why he chose to build a business selling candles in the first place.
