My name is Candice Renee. I am an educator who has learned how to use personal development and multiple streams of income to pursue my passion of building lasting partnerships between educators and the communities they serve.
I teach others how to leverage their gifts to live a life of freedom and choice.
I have always had a desire to do more. While I have worked as an educator – special education, English and ESL – for more than 15 years, I have always pursued other endeavors as well. I love to write and pour into the communities that I live and work in through service and community activism. My greatest wish was that I would create the financial freedom to be able to devote more of my time to creating positive change in the urban, disadvantaged communities from which the students who I often teach come.
I finally took the leap after my daughter was born. I remember, it was December of 2015. It just hit me. I decided that it was time. And I started a home-based business that has been nothing short of a blessing for me. I did not know how great of an impact my decision would have and still is having on me.
I love what I do because I will always be an educator, whether I am inside or outside of the classroom. Now I get to help many more people. In addition, the skills and habits I had to learn and develop have changed who I am as a person. The biggest change was in my understanding of myself. Thanks to the education I gained by engaging in personal development, I was able to recognize unhealthy patterns in my personal relationships. I left an unsafe, unhealthy relationship. Now I am focused on raising my children in a safe and enriching environment. I am not sure if I would have had the strength to make that change in the manner that I did without that first decision to do life differently at the end of 2015.
I also love my business because if fits so perfectly into the lifestyle that I currently have. I do not have to “sell” products. I do not have to be a walking billboard. I don’t have to spam my friends or plaster my social media with advertisements about what I do to be effective. I can live my authentic life and enjoy the benefits that the additional income brings into my life. That is a blessing.
I am available for speaking engagements and one to one consultations. For more information, check out my website: https://www.lifedesignwithcandice.com/
