Model, entrepreneur, and mother of 4, Candace Oliver, shares how she dumped her victim mindset after losing the business she built for 11 years and then started fresh by launching her personal brand.

She dives deep into overcoming people-pleasing, performing and perfectionism while building a business in the beauty industry.

Candace is a dear friend to me and my wife, Shannon. She’s one of those people who makes you wonder, “How does she do it all?” And she’s the first to tell you that she’s just figuring it all out as she goes, just like everybody else.

She’s on a mission to pull back the curtain and bring authenticity to a superficial industry, and to empower women to women to find their JOY + look beautiful doing it. MIND. BODY. And SPIRIT.
