Students mingled with local vendors selling a range of items from clothing and jewelry to crystals and tarot card readings. Among the charming group of entrepreneurs was small business owner Amber Magny.
Born and raised as a Haitian American in Miramar, Florida, Magny moved to Tallahassee with the goal of furthering her education in 2015.

Under the MurderBunny Productions holding, Magny’s second luxury candle-selling business was born, receiving the name Elaqor to reflect the spirit of his first company. “The idea is to create an atmosphere,” explains Magny. “Just light a candle, grab a glass of matching wine and hang in there to read a book – complete relaxation.”

To achieve this, the CEO of Elaqor says that she usually spends more than 10 hours a day working on various projects to fulfill the orders and wishes of her customers.
When asked what she hopes for in terms of growing her business, Magny outlined two central goals she is looking to achieve in the near future. “Elaqor seeks to give back by donating to organizations,” she says. The entrepreneur wants the opportunity to create a meaningful impact on the surrounding Tallahassee community, specifically focusing on helping the cause of cancer research.
Magny also hopes to secure office space to take her luxury candle business to a national level of marketing and sales. While Elaqor’s primary form of advertising is currently through an online store and seller-friendly venues such as Market Wednesday, an opportunity has arisen to market its products in physical stores. “I’ll have a space to showcase some candles at The Fuzzy Pineapple in the near future, so I’m looking forward to that as well,” the entrepreneur said.
When asked what advice she would give to a businesswoman who has just started her own business, Magny said she would tell her not to give up and avoid becoming your “biggest enemy” in the business. pursuit of success. “Growth and change are painful, but nothing is as painful as getting stuck in a place you don’t belong,” says Magny.
