Angelique has enviable determination. While deciding to make her own favors for her bridal shower, she stumbled into a lucrative soap favor business that has been featured on countless party blogs, in news articles, and on party theme inspiration sites. Angelique’s robust Etsy shop delivers thousands of soap favors a month bringing happiness to kids and adults while making every event that much more special with favors that guest can actually use.

While raising their daughter and managing a thriving business, Angelique also works full time for a law office to support their family while her husband finishes his degree in engineering. Despite only having 24 hours in a day, Angelique juggles three full time jobs (job, store, mom) and is confident that if you dream big, work hard, stay focused, and surround yourself with good people; anything is possible.

In this episode, Dana chats with Angelique about how her business got started, the unique niche she's found for herself, and why Angelique thinks bowling is awesome. Let's dive right in! Oh, and before we get started it is important for us to note that Angelique's soaps are all natural and great for kids who might want something fun in the bathtub but can't use traditional bath products due to their sensitive skin. Now, on with the show!
