Interview @ Reggie Hathorn (reggiehathorn)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

Mental health has always been so important for me. I believe that everyone needs to feel loved and know that their existence matters. My product is like a warm hug for the people who have been feeling low and unloved.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

Be kind to others, it is very important. But more important than that is to be kind towards yourself. As long as you’re doing your best, you do not need to worry about anything else.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

I would like to thank the people around me who showed me the power of empathy and compassion. Because let me tell you something, it can take a person so far in life and it is very essential for human existence.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

I carefully craft my scented candles in hopes that it will make someone’s bad day into a good one as they take out 10 minutes of their lives for themselves to relax. I also try to raise awareness about important issues such as Mental Health.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

Jus Jivin once said, “Scars simply say ‘I survived.’” This is such a powerful quote because nothing matters more than your well being. As long as you’re alive, everything will be okay.

How can our readers follow you on social media?
