How long you have been in business for yourself?:
Business product or service:
Tiddleywink Toffee, the Thin English Delight, the very best thin toffee slathered in milk or dark chocolate covered with a variety of toppings. (walnuts, pretzels, almond & coconut, hot spicy pretzels, and crushed peppermint for the holidays)
What led you to start your business?:
The loss of a full time job after 19 years. The company downsized and eliminated a whole department. It was time to change it up and throw fate to the wind, so I decided to start a toffee business.
What kept/keeps you going during challenging times?:
The thrill of listening to people confirm that Tiddleywink Toffee is the best toffee they have tasted, so thin and buttery. Knowing that people believe in what I do.
One lesson you’ve learned during your entrepreneurial journey:
You have to keep a positive attitude, because it is so easy to get discouraged.
One thing about your business that makes you smile:
I realize I have done everything myself and people really love the product.
Favorite motivational quote:
There are so many, but one I like is: “Not admitting a mistake is a bigger mistake.” We all make so many and if we can learn something from our mistakes and turn them into something positive we can move forward.
I like dark chocolate of any kind!
