Did you know I’m a writer?
Always been one of my passions… and I’m not ashamed to say: talents.
(That’s right, Bees. Take note. It’s totally allowable to acknowledge your own awesome.)
But don’t take my word for it.
Sarah Foutz and Lisa Martinello – two of my very favorite coach colleagues – have these kind words to add about the book I wrote as the capstone project to my Master Coach certification:
“Read this from cover to cover in one sitting and I’m still thinking about it.” – Sarah
“It doesn’t hurt that all of the profound lessons and takeaways in this book are delivered with lightheartedness, humor and openness from Candice’s own story. Must read!” – Lisa

I share all the secrets and setbacks on my road from not at all involved in coaching to the business I’m pretty damn proud of today.
Such a wild ride.
And the best news is – the same principles that helped me build the career of my dreams are the exact strategies we’ll use to make the marriage you’ve always wanted happen too.
Here you go:
Remember the first time you heard someone say that “thoughts create results”? And how she went on to explain that everything in your life – good or bad, perfect or pitiful – was of your own creation? That only you held all the power to change anything you wanted? No matter what it was?
Maybe she also told you that this was “the best news ever”.
Maybe you agreed with her. Went out and immediately set to work creating everything you ever wanted. Slid into your dream life like you were always meant to be there.
Or maybe you turned off her podcast.
For several months.
I’m Candice. And that’s me I’m talking about two lines back.
Early 2017 found me driving around aimlessly, in the middle of the night, alternately fuming and crying to one of my dearest friends. I was working hard to convince her that my husband had stolen all of my dreams and lamenting the fact that I was stuck in a dead-end relationship because of the two sleeping littles in my backseat and the third on the way.
She heard me.
And loved me.
And invited me to listen to Jody Moore.
And then I didn’t.
Because Jody had the nerve to suggest that my husband’s behavior wasn’t hurting me.
I gave her a couple more episodes, as a courtesy to my friend, but Jody lost me completely when she unapologetically stated that it wasn’t my husband’s job to take care of my needs.
What. The. Actual. Hell.
Had she never heard any of the traditional wedding vows? To have and to hold. In sickness and health. Richer? Poorer? To love and to cherish?
Promises were made. And broken. What about that?
I knew right then that Jody must live in a wildly different world than mine. Probably with a husband who was naturally gifted in anticipating her needs.
What I didn’t realize at the time was that I’d encountered my first unicorn.
Here was a woman who genuinely seemed to be living in a fantasy land where love conquered all, dreams came true and money flowed freely in a sparkly river of abundance.
How nice for her.
And how unlikely – dare I say, impossible – for me.
I wasn’t mad at her for it. Not really jealous even. More like fascinated. And wistful. And skeptical. I heard her repeatedly say that I could also enjoy everything she was experiencing. All it would take was a belief in the idea that I could create my own future, an acceptance of how terrible I’d be at it in the beginning and a willingness process my feelings all along the way.
She didn’t believe she was a unicorn.
But a lot of signs pointed to that being the case….
…looking at Jody can make it feel challenging to believe in your own ability to achieve similar heights. Especially when you’re slogging through the muck, face down in seemingly continuous failure.
But what if it were possible?
What if all that that stood between you and unicorn status was a deeper understanding of your own power? Your own value? And the absolute imperativeness of your place at the worldwide table?
Could be amazing.
And maybe even fun.
All of what follows is my thoughts – of course – on how to become a unicorn. It’s really not tricky. There’s no big secret for me to reveal. Unicorns only seem like unicorns because most people aren’t willing to do what’s required. But every person who wants to, can.
Here’s what you’re going to need…
