Ebony Flett and her daughter.
Red Hill Candle Co. founder Ebony Flett has won three categories at the 2021 AusMumpreneur Awards. Ebony took out the Handmade Business, Creative Entrepreneur, and AusMumpreneur Rising Star for Victoria/Tasmania categories at the recent awards, which were held online.
“This evening has just blown me away,” Ebony said. “I’m so thrilled by this, and to be acknowledged amongst all these other incredible people, it’s so humbling. We’ve been working on this for five years now, but the last 12 months have just been amazing. My daughter was born three weeks before the new factory experience and store opened, and it’s been such an incredible and at times interesting year.”
Ebony credited her “small but remarkable team” for their role in the success of the business, which is based in the Dromana Industrial Estate. “Without all the support of my family and the team, we wouldn’t have been able to grow the business to where it is now,” she said. “When we started, we were a home-based product, but now we help others to come together and explore their own creativity. And with our new mezzanine floor complete we can hopefully host even more workshops and special events alongside our core candle product range and continue to spark joy with memorable experiences.”
This is the 12th year the AusMumpreneur Awards have been held to recognise the growing number of women who are achieving outstanding business success while balancing the demands of motherhood.
