During Black Business month we kicked off our Lady Mogul Talk series on Instagram Live. Learn more about Courtney's motivation for starting Lula's Candle Co.
Founded in April 2019, Lula's Candle Company, LLC (Lula's Candle Co.) is a woman, minority-owned business created by Courtney D. Sykes. Born and raised in a small town called Apopka, FL she currently resides in Atlanta, GA with her husband. In her spare time, Courtney enjoys traveling with her hubby, serving her local community, and hanging out with her family, close girlfriends and fellow creatives/entrepreneurs. When not managing full-time responsibilities in her day job at a major research institution in the Corporate Development field, Courtney is balancing entrepreneurship by pouring her heart and soul into creating soy candles and room mists designed to enhance relaxation and restoration. Lula's Candle Co. was birthed from the pain and grief Courtney experienced when she lost her mom's Godmother and one of her grandmother's best friends. In January 2018, "Auntie Lula," as Courtney affectionately called her, gained her wings after passing away from her battle. Fast forward a year later to April 20, 2019 on what should have been Auntie Lula's birthday, Courtney announced that she was creating this company to honor her, to thank her, and to become the woman Auntie Lula knew she could be. Now, Lula's Candle Co. is a beacon of hope to remember those who have lost loved ones to cancer and celebrate the lives of those who have triumphed and beat their disease.
