Welcome to our blog! We are Swazic and Les—we are friends who maintain this blog while running our respective businesses. We’ve been entrepreneurs for more than 15 years, and throughout the years, we had our own share of joys and pains.

We aim to share your experiences, learnings, and inspiring stories to people who want to start a business. We believe that we learn from other’s mistakes, so feel free to learn from ours! The journey is not going to be easy—but with knowledge and wisdom from those who have learned things the hard way, the ride will be smoother and less stressful, or so we hope.

This blog caters to small business owners, but we also want to reach out to those who are not there yet but have been dreaming of having their own business someday. We hope that the articles you find here will encourage you to take the same path as ours.

And when you do get inspired by the stories and wisdom we have shared through this blog, we will be more than happy to listen to your own success story. Hit us a message at info@swazicandlesusa.com, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
