Meet our amazing Hosts.

Candice Smiley

Heart Driven Hustle

Hi you! I’m happy you stopped by to say hello. I’m a mom, a social marketer and entrepreneur. I find a ton of my life’s joy in connecting people, to other people, places and things. Here we are going to have a conversation about all things relationships, collaborating, sales, collaboration, events… and all things words — to help you create the life you want as you SPEAK it into existence. Listen to your heart dear one; it knows the way. Recently, the company that I loved and had poured almost 9 years of my life into was sold… and while at first, this seemed like a magical “merger”, it wasn’t long before I realised that wasn’t the case for me. Sometimes the “plot twists” of our lives become incredible new chapters in our lives. Transition can be a magical time in your life; if you have a Values Driven life – you can know what lines up, and what doesn’t! (Ask me and I’ll share more or check out the links on my profile!) I was introduced to the industry of network marketing in my early twenties, so I’m able to lean on over 10 years of networking and sales experience. Disciplined action, scheduling, discernment and encouragement are defining points to my success in this industry. I feel a strong desire to help… believing we achieve our best when we stay in our strength zone, share what we love and work in cooperation and collaboration. Collaboration is a magical word! I am a master closer, engaging speaker, Word Wizard and lover of all things marketing or sales. A natural leader and disruptor, I have a passion for helping women to not be afraid of the numbers and to understand how to build rapport quickly to create lasting and synergistic relationships that are always win-win.

After studying countless experts in the industry and doing extensive research into neuroscience, the brain, memory of emotional trauma, and ancient oriental wisdom and medicine, a system began to emerge.
