Today we’d like to introduce you to Ryan Hall.
Hi Ryan, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I’ve always been intrigued with crystals and the metaphysical properties they withhold. My goal was to create jewelry with crystals that will look beautiful, whether in a personal or professional setting. Our candles use the healing properties of aromatherapy and crystals. They are made using only natural essential oils and soy wax. Rayee’s of Light gets its name from my late mother. You’ll see the use of hearts throughout my work, symbolizing her love for helping others.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Being a single mother, having an adequate amount of time to fully pursue my passion has definitely been the biggest struggle. There have been times when I wanted to call it quits, but then I’ll receive an email from a client telling me how beautiful their pieces are or how my products have helped them. That’s when I realize there is no way I can quit. This is definitely my calling and the journey is definitely worth it.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
I specialize in making crystal jewelry and crystal Infused candles. I am most proud of the efforts and research I put into my products, especially when it comes to my candles. There is a very intricate process that I go through in matching crystals, oils and herbs to create the perfect blend for the effect of the candle. The product that I am most proud of would be my Twin Flame Massage Candle. These candles are made with safe skin wax consisting of jojoba, vitamin E, and sweet almond oil as well and as African Shea and cocoa butter.
Any advice for finding a mentor or networking in general?
I am a believer in Divine Timing. For myself, God has been placing the right people in my life at the perfect time. My advice would be to know that it is ok to let your guard down when it comes to networking and to not be afraid to ask for help.
