How does one turn a passion into a business?
Join us in person June 9 at 11:30 am as we meet Emlyn Roesler of Solid Soaps. Emlyn successfully turned a creative hobby into a business that has flourished even during the pandemic. Emlyn will share how her journey led her from being a clinical nurse specialist to a professional entrepreneur. She will also teach us a little about soaps and the soap-making process. Guests will walk away from this presentation not only inspired to follow their dreams but also smelling amazing with a handmade mini soap!
If you would like to pick up some soap products or make your own soap bar(s) during the event, Emlyn can accept cash, card, or Venmo on location.

About the Presenter
started making soaps in 2013 as a “make the presents” Christmas project. Her very first soap was made from a melt-and-pour kit she had gifted to her husband. What started out as a fun craft project turned into a business and Solid Soaps
was born in April, 2018. Emlyn went into full-time soap making in 2021, making the tough decision to leave her profession as a clinical nurse specialist and move into something new, exciting, and creative through her business.
Emlyn creates consciously-crafted soaps using phthalate-free fragrance, essential oils, natural colorants, and botanicals. Her soaps are sold in tons of stores around Austin, and she also does custom orders online. Emlyn is a mother of two youngsters and works from her home studio, affectionately known as “Stu.”
The next Women's Club meeting is via Zoom – July 14, 2022 – "Get Noticed on Social Media: Inspire People to Engage with Your Stellar Content"
