June 28, 2017

  • "There’s two kinds of leaders in this world: there’s the leaders that people choose to follow and there’s the leaders they hate to follow."
  • "She looked at me and she said, ‘You saved his life."
  • "You don’t know who, you don’t know how, and you don’t to what level you can affect, influence, or change another person’s life simply by showing up. But the challenge is, you have to show up."

One of my favorite Hollyisms that I share with audiences around the world is: “Do you let your trials & tribulations DEFINE you or REFINE you?” My guest today, Candy Barone, is one of the amazing individuals who has let her difficult childhood refine her into a beautiful diamond that is helping children and adults stay accountable to their goals while leading with heart & soul.

Known by her nickname, The Pull-No-Punches Accountability Powerhouse, Candy Barone shares with me how her dynamic personality and dedication to accountability has helped her earn that nickname while utilizing her expertise in leadership & accountability with corporate organizations around the world. We discuss the issues organizations face by placing the value of profits over people, and how Candy is working passionately to help “connect people back to something that’s more powerful than the almighty dollar and the bottom-line.”

We also dive into how a toxic relationship in Candy’s life has impacted her ability to help people around the world, and how a pivotal moment in her childhood really made her stop, reevalute, and commit to helping others live their best lives. You’ll also hear how this distinct moment helped save someone’s life!

I know you’ll enjoy Candy’s interview as well as the reminder that you never know the extent to which you can have a positive impact on the people around you. Enjoy!
