  Reading this book by Marsha Sinetar inspired Paul Aldrich to do what he loved, and not worry about the money. An entrepreneur and self-described 'start-up addict,' Paul turned his candle-making hobby into a thriving, successful business, the old-fashioned way --- through lots of hard work and initiative. Paul remembers being a teenager in the 1970's, melting his mother's leftover canning paraffin, pouring it into milk cartons, and making candles. In 1993, while unemployed and looking to fill a void, he resumed this hobby of making candles. Paul was already spending a lot of his free time at the local library so he decided to put that time to good use researching the complexities behind the art of candle-making. It wasn't long before family and friends began offering suggestions for fragrances and asking Paul to create candles for their personal use, or to present as gifts. Village Candle® candle company was born when, on vacation in Pennsylvania, the car laden with candles for his family they were going to visit, Paul stopped at a candle shop along the way. Quite by accident, this store enthusiastically placed the first of what would turn out to be many, many orders from them, as well as thousands of other retail stores.
