Maggie Rodriguez set off on her second entrepreneurial adventure in the summer of 2017, Coco La Vie Home Fragrance + Apothecary, a new brand with coconut oil as the main ingredient. The collection delivers luxurious bath and body products, as well as amazing home fragrances. All the bath and body products are infused with the goodness of coconut oil with decadent massage candles, perfect for the spa lover! However, Maggie started her career as a school teacher, never did she plan to become a business owner, or did she have any formal business education. She attributes her business savvy to her father; growing up she watched him build a textile business and witnessed firsthand the ups and down that lead to success. Naturally, when her daughter was born in 2005 the desire to stay home and be a mom drove her to launch a soy candle business with her childhood friend. Hard work, dedication and vision mixed with sleepless nights, wearing multiple hats and traveling non-stop made the line a huge success. In 2017, the sale of said company was finalized and she was free to launch Coco La Vie, where the Miami native has incorporated her love for coconut oil and dream of creating a beautiful and complete collection of bath and body + home fragrances.
