Create the Ripple Podcast was started to tell stories, to tell the truth and to make an impact. Candice loves the quote by Muriel Rukeyser
What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life? The world would split open.
And in a nutshell that's the podcast's intent, mission and main ideal - to hold space for story and truth that causes the world to split wide open.
After an intense period of grief brought on a full life healing and transformation, Candice's lifelong love of speaking, sharing ideas and telling stories emerged in the form of the podcast. After resisting getting her own story out, Angel turned the mic toward Candice and asked her some questions...
This is Part One of the Tell All Series you'll be hearing more of over the coming months.
Do you have a story to tell? Candice and Angel would love to connect with you and support you to share it powerfully on the Create the Ripple Podcast. No previous experience needed.
“What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life? The world would split open.” - Muriel Rukeyser
“The whole reason for starting the podcast was to hold space for conversations that mattered.” - Candice Smiley
“One of my core values are connection, communication, having conversations and having conversations that take courage to be had.” - Candice Smiley
“If you can’t be honest with yourself, you are not going to make any kind of change. You are not going to move forward at all and you certainly can’t be honest with anyone else.” - Candice Smiley
“My life got so much bigger when I was able to let go.” - Candice Smiley
“You don’t attract what you want, you attract who you are.” - Candice Smiley
“Figure out exactly what you want and who you want to be. You can find a level of peace and happiness that you are only dreaming about right now, if you just start the process. Figure out what your core values are so it becomes easier to make decisions. If you don’t know who you are, figure out where your core values are and then you’ll begin to shape it from there.” - Candice Smiley
“Be brave, choose brave, choose to be courageous. When one of us chooses to live at that level of truth, the world does split open.”- Candice Smiley

“20 years ago I survived a sexual assault from my boyfriend.
13 years ago I decided not to kill myself.
10 years ago I was left with 350 k worth of bad debt.
8 years ago I went into consumer proposal to fix that.
6 years ago I welcomed my beautiful daughter into the world.
4 years ago I left my marriage to fall in love with myself.
2 years ago I allowed myself to heal and reconnect with my feminine;
AND rebuilt my life as I moved into my own tiny home and found my lifetime love.
This year, I started my podcast and welcomed my second baby earthside."
Candice is a self proclaimed master manifestor and personal development junkie who loves to engage in interesting conversations with other influencers and entrepreneurs. Her favourite conversations are the ones that take courage to engage in. (Check out her podcast, Create the Ripple Podcast wherever you stream your podcasts for more of that!)
She spends her time living - in a tiny home (250 sq ft), traveling with her daughter - speaking - on her podcast and on stages, and sharing candidly with other women how to find love after betrayal, to trust themselves, to speak up for themselves and set powerful boundaries.
After a narcissistic and abusive romantic partner cheated on her with multiple women and left her (and the country) with significant unexpected bad debt and ruined credit, Candice was forced to rebuild her life, her credit and her trust in herself.
Over the next few years Candice navigated the challenging world of foreclosure court, filing for financial proposals and divorce. During these times she adopted a minimalist lifestyle, leaned on her personal network and practiced radical personal forgiveness, acceptance and responsibility. The journey was not without its impact and Candice shares powerfully about dealing with anxiety, depression, shame and learning to let go.
Now debt free, financially stable and in a safe committed relationship, Candice loves her minimalist lifestyle for the beauty and freedom it offers her. She knows the power of a good thrift store shop and loves her wardrobe! She has learned the power of saying no, listening to your own heart and speaks openly about subtle abuse as it occurs in relationships. She’s become a voice for listening to your own truth and speaking it powerfully. She knows how to save money, make money online and in creative ways to balance the books as a single mom and yet live your biggest and best life.
Candice can never resist the urge to take off her boots to walk barefoot into a clear mountain lake or stream. When she is not connecting or writing, she can be found disappearing into the backcountry trails of Canada with her life-love Mark and losing herself exploring waterfalls and mountain trails. She is a quiet introvert who adores eating clean foods and reading a great book.
