Please introduce yourself to our reading audience.
Hello, my name Candace Holyfield. I’m widely known as Six Figure Spa Chick on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube. I am a 3-time award winning spa owner who is dedicated to helping other spa owners open and operate successfully.
What made you want to become an entrepreneur?
I really never wanted to be an entrepreneur. It just happened. My waitress job was sick of me doing what I wanted to do when I got ready so they tried to get rid of me. I needed a plan before I got fired. I decided to attend massage therapy school and the rest is history. An entrepreneur beast was born.
What would you tell your 21 year old self?
I would tell my 21 year old self always remember your a Queen and never settle for anything less.
What do you want to say to the woman who doesn’t feel like she’s good enough to make it in the marketplace?
To any woman who doesn’t feel like she is good enough just think of me. I was called ugly, fat and worthless. Today I’m told how beautiful I am and how I have changed so many lives. Don’t believe the negative you hear from the universe or in your head. Anytime you’re feeling down simply change your circle. They will empower you.
What do you want people to know about you?
I want people to know that I have dedicated my life to helping others open and scale their business. It’s my life mission to help as many people as possible.
