I found that starting a business from scratch is challenging in many parts, like even coming up with a good company name & logo. But every challenge that I encounter is worth the reward of creating this awesome business that I did! When I created the name "The Expedition Soap Company", I remembered reading about the struggles of the Victorian explorers of Africa, and I wanted to tribute my site to my love of history. Being that I am an avid reader and study of words, just look at the definition for:
1.a journey or voyage undertaken by a group of people with a particular purpose, especially that of exploration.
The Expedition Soap Company name is just fitting, as we're all on a journey in life. But, when we are open to exploring new experiences, your mind will grow and your whole life can change (and smell better!)!
Now, I have a business that I never dreamed possible, and I couldn't be more grateful for this expedition that I have embarked upon. So, if you would, please join me in my expedition, and you will be sent into sensory heaven with my delightfully scented soaps and amazing body butter, plus bath bombs. Your shower will never be the same again!
Even better than just owning a business, I give back to organizations far and near, through ExpeditionSoapsFundraising.com, my other website which is dedicated just to fundraising! I give back ~40% on my products so my fundraiser can rival even the biggest companies, with my ~40% returns! The entire fundraiser is very simple and user-friendly, as well! I also give back annually to USAutism.org, and OU CARES, two autism organizations that I love to support! There is one lesson in life that I learned young: You Get Back What You Give! It's important to me to give back when I can, as this is an important part of my life expedition!
