The Adventures of Starting a Business

Right off the bat I’m going outside of the stated topics for this blog. Oh well, I’m not good at sticking to a script. I’m also not very good at grammar or sentence structure and tend to jump around depending on what pops into my head. I’m ok with that though.


As you’ve probably figured out, I recently started a candle company called Knox’s Favorite Candle Company. If you haven’t stumbled upon it yet, here’s the link Anyways, a lot of work goes into creating a business! Which I knew. To some extent anyways.

First blog post

Hello everyone and thanks for making it this far! I hope that you continue on this journey with me as I attempt to write a blog for the first time.

With this first post I’m going to be brief. I just want to introduce myself and my hobbies and passions. With that being said, lets get started!

My name is Stephen. **Wait a minute, why is the title Knox’s Favorite then? Who is Knox?** Knox is my dog!

Half Beagle/ half German Shepherd, Knox is the best companion I could ask for. Except for my beautiful and loving girlfriend Kirsten. I’m sure you’ll hear from her on here at some point, but she is just about the only thing I love more than Knox. We love having Knox as our “fur baby” and he even thinks he runs the show here, much like most young humans do.

Aside from Knox, I have a few other interests. Some of these will feature prominently in the future, others probably not so much, but I really have no idea which will take front and center. These interests include: Running, Bicycling, Surfing, Hiking, Camping, Frugality, Minor Construction and Carpentry, and of course Dogs and Candles. There are many more, and I’m sure at some point throughout this journey my interests will change and I’ll have stuff I enjoy doing that I don’t even know about right now.

So fasten your seatbelt, everyone. We’re about to take a ride into the unknown.
