Interview with Rolande Sumner of Butter Angels

Rolande Sumner and I became fast friends through the Indie Business Network. She opened her business, Butter Angels, LLC., a bit over a year ago, and I just fell in love with her enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge. We started with speaking to each other through the IBN forum, but quickly began messaging and calling one another. Our professional relationship morphed into a true friendship, and I am ever grateful to have met such an intelligent, ambitious, compassionate, giving woman and fellow entrepreneur.

Rolande has had an interesting journey into entrepreneurship, including beginning her career in the military. One of Rolande’s, and Butter Angels’, main goals is to support fellow women veterans. Much of Rolande’s work is based in charity, including the KEY P.E.A.R.L.S. Youth Mentorship Program of Kappa Epsilon Psi Military Sorority Inc; this program supports and mentors little girls so they grow to become intelligent and strong women. Butter Angels, like Bath, Body, Candle Moments, is certified by Leaping Bunny Cruelty-Free International, and they donate a portion of sales to the Leaping Bunny program, as well. There is no shortage of charity involved in Butter Angels, which is just one of the reasons why I personally love Rolande’s business.

I purchase from Butter Angels, and I am a huge fan of their lip moisturizers and lotion bars, which are completely natural, moisturizing, and totally fabulous. I encourage you to listen to Rolande’s interview because she is a true American dream and inspiration. Of course, you absolutely need to try Butter Angels’ products!

 

Bath, Body, Candle Moments is proud and honored to support other small businesses, especially those businesses we patron and believe in – Butter Angels is at the top of our list!

September 28, 2018

I am always so excited when I get the opportunity to handcraft custom candles for party favors. It means that I get to be a part of someone’s wedding, shower, birthday party, bat mitzvah (to name a few we’ve done) in a little way.

The Hardest Part is Getting Started

August 31, 2018

I recently started going to the gym.  I’m not a big fan of the gym, in fact, I would dare say that it is slightly above medieval torture on my scale of things I loathe.  I have tried so many different ways to make the moments at the gym joyful – from classes, to workout … Continue reading The Hardest Part is Getting Started

Scents and Spirituality – Contacting the Dead with Candles?

July 30, 2018

I received a really interesting direct message on the Scents the Moment Instagram the other night: Initially, as you can tell from my response, I was a little taken aback. I mean, if you look at my Instagram, I have photos of products and my dog, Lucy – I never thought my branding would direct … Continue reading Scents and Spirituality – Contacting the Dead with Candles?
