Episode 047: Defining values - A talk about vulnerability, trauma, leadership and legacy.
With Lisa Morton
Whew. When I read the bio on Lisa Morton I felt all kinds of intimidated. Then we met online to podcast and it was like I found a long lost sister. This woman shared her story and entrepreneur journey with me with such vulnerability and transparency it was like taking a deep breath of fresh mountain air.
This is a show for the very-human big-dream kind of woman who knows her limits, faults and shortcomings… and shows up every day to do and offer her best, right or wrong, mistake or not… but always to try.
“It’s integrity, I will never finish a job that’s not finished properly.” - Lisa Morton
“It is absolutely okay to be vulnerable.” - Lisa Morton
“Show vulnerability in life, ask for help, don’t try and profess that you can do everything. You’ll be surprised that the offers of help do come because people feel that you’re a human being and that they can relate to you.” - Lisa Morton
“What drives me is to make a difference, to create an impact, create purpose and put people together and create magic.” - Lisa Morton

“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.
