Hey I’m Candice. The girl with the big hair and even bigger personality…
That felt really lame when I typed it so I’m just gonna leave that right there so you see what you’re getting yourself into.
I’m an entrepreneur currently running a small coworking space and content studio for creative black women in Atlanta, GA.
I also run Brown Girl Bloggers which is an influencer agency and community that represents black and brown women who create content online.
I’ve always been a “hustler.” My journey to entrepreneurship began in middle school when I decided to make money selling candy to my classmates after my school switched to healthier snack machines. I went out and bought a $2 pack of 200 piece candy and sold each piece for 25 cents or more. I eventually started selling chips and recruiting people to sell for me. That was my first lesson in supply and demand.
After a while, the haters in the front office shut me down but it was too late because I’d already been bitten by the entrepreneurship bug. There’s something about being directly responsible for the money and my days that appeals to me. Throughout high school and college I started several businesses while going to school and working for other companies.
After graduating from The College of Charleston with a degree in Communication and moving to California I decided to give corporate America a try but soon found it wasn’t for me. In 2013 I started freelancing and I haven’t looked back since! My most recent clients included a high end jewelry gallery, a real estate broker, and a sealant salesman… among others. I now only accept clients through Brown Girl Bloggers but freelancing was fun for the 5 years that I did it.
I blog at Life In Style record the Life Notes Podcast, and host events whenever I can. It’s safe to say I’m never bored.
I’m open to opportunities to speak and travel. The subjects that I love to speak about the most are cultivating communities, how to get hired, small business, and building a business the nontraditional way.
