OMAHA,NEB(FOX42KPTM)-Nic Bianchi is a 15-year-old high school student. He runs track, but in between time, he's also a boss. He's the CEO of his very own candle business.
"I've put my heart and soul into this, I love it. This is what I really enjoy," Nic Bianchi said.
Bianchi was first introduced to the craft at 12-years-old. Bianchi's parents bought him a candle-making kit on his birthday. They helped him make his first candle.
"From there, I fell in love with it because it really helped encourage the math and science which I love so much."
He spent the last three years building his brand. It's called "Bianchi Candle Company" also known as "The Wild Worksman". He's been all over Omaha speaking at events and telling his story.
"We truly have a meaning behind the company, we aren't in it for the profit, we aren't in for all this stuff. We want to help people, we want to help ourselves grow, we want to help the company grow," Bianchi said.
He receives orders every day and it's up to him to keep track of them all.
"To me it's not really a job or something like an obligation I have to do. It's kind of like a feeling to me. It's part of me."
He makes sure each candle tells a story that could encourage others.
"It's not just really a candle, it's truly trying to go after this is how I feel about my company I want other people to feel this way too."
Bianchi plans to keep his business going until retirement. It has become his safe haven.
