Tell a Member’s Business Story: Kandra Hudson with Cakamile
The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce has close to 500 AMAZING members. From restaurateurs to retailers and everything in between. They add a great amount of value to Liberty County and the surrounding area. Each member brings something special to our chamber family, and we want to take time to highlight our members by telling their business story. We had one of our program coordinators meet with Mrs. Kandra Hudson from Cakamile to get her story.
Who are you and what is your business?
My name is Kandra Hudson the owner/CEO of Cakamile. My business provides Holistic care for your mind, body and soul.
What made you start your business?
I wanted to focus on using alternative natural products that were safe because a lot of what we put onto our skin is absorbed into our bodies. Soon after I became motivated to then change certain habits that could potentially break down our immune systems. I look at it as if I am here to help guide and allow others to be better, do better, eat better and most importantly live better.
What brought you to Liberty County?
I have been a Liberty County resident for at least 20 years. My father was stationed here at Fort Stewart where he later retired after 25 plus years of service. Staying local wasn’t difficult due to having family residing in Savannah.
What’s an interesting fact about your business most people don’t know?
The name Cakamile was created by my father. It is a combination of my name, my father’s, my sister’s and daughter’s name broken down into one word creating the name Cakamile.
Do you have any advice for new business owners?
The advice I would give to any business owner starting out is that it’s a proven fact that the harder you work the more successful you will become. Being a business owner isn’t easy, it takes a lot of work and at times it can become draining. Always accept the help that is offered to you, take breaks, relax and apply selflove. You should always separate your personal life from your business. Remember, you are the face of your brand, representative and also the marketer.
When you’re not working, where in Liberty County do you like to spend your time?
Due to my schedule, I try to spend my off days at home with my family. I enjoy my garden, cooking and reading. If the parks were still assessable, I would be there with my children. This pandemic has limited us in many ways, so in turn we had to come up with other ways of enjoying each other more.
What made you join the Chamber? What value have you gotten out of your Chamber membership?
The reason I joined the Chamber was that I wanted to be a part of something great here in our local community. I have my own personal family but wanted to be a part of this business family as well. I enjoy receiving insight, guidance and support from our local Chamber.
