About Me

Hello, my name is Olivia Woodward (aka Lulu)! I was born and raised in Taylorville and have been very active ever since I was little. I am a senior at Taylorville High School and have been a part of many clubs and activities throughout my high school career. I’d like to say I love to stay busy as I’ve been involved in Basketball, Volleyball, Softball, Key Club, Unified Tornadoes, Spanish Club, Purple Reign, National Honors Society, and am currently in Student Council and have held Executive Board positions within it as well. Besides doing these extracurriculars, I also am in the College Now program through Lincoln Land Community College and have diligently worked to obtain above a 4.0 grade point average all throughout my high school and college classes. While it may seem that I never stop, I do love to spend time outdoors, hangout with friends, and work on growing my business in my spare time. I am so excited for the opportunities that CEO has to offer and I can’t wait to see where it leads me in the future!

About My Business

Lulu’s Candles has been up and running for over four years now. I sell individually hand poured, authentically made, clean candles with a soy wax blend. In addition to candles, I also sell wax melts, hanging car freshies, and take custom orders. All of my products are perfect for all of your smell-good needs! I started this business during COVID whenever all of my activities and sports came to a raging halt. I was inspired as a little girl by my grandma, Nonie, who I used to make candles with. Since then, I have independently worked to grow my business and have expanded by selling within two local shops in our community. My products are for people of all ages looking to freshen up their spaces or wanting a cute multi-functioning decoration. Ultimately, I focus on offering exceptional customer service and work to build strong connections with all of my customers.
