Today’s episode, with Candice Nicole, is one for the books! Candice is a Publicist who has worked with some of the biggest names in music and film and landed them big deals and media spots on the local and national level. She runs her firm full time and also has a passion for connecting women and helping them find success and balance in their careers and businesses.
For over a decade, Candice has been growing her firm and brand. She spends her time representing talent, speaking, writing books, hosting a podcast and winning awards in her field. Today she talks about her experiences as a PR professional while working in the corporate world (and hating it), starting her own firm, leaving her 9-5, navigation client contracts and huge brand deals, and building the life she desired. She talks about the unconventional path she took to becoming an entrepreneur and how she has used social media and word of mouth to build her empire. She also gets into how entrepreneurs can stay profitable and innovative even in the midst of uncertainty, the importance of reading contracts and having paper trails, and how to avoid common pitfalls in business.
