Episode 039: Mom first, entrepreneur second - and still passionately present with an impact
with Mandy Trapp
Mom, entrepreneur and passionately present - that is how I might describe Mandy Trapp in a nutshell. I found myself relating to her on so many levels. I found myself enjoying the story of who she was, who she now is and the effect that has had on her business. Her bio is impressive and she is one who knows the power of the pivot.
“What I noticed very early into my career, was that whatever was happening in the body was obviously directly connected to what was happening in the mind.” - Mandy Trapp
“What we make of something, is a reflection of everything that is happening within our body and within our mind.” - Mandy Trapp
“It’s easiest to create those happy, healthy states for ourselves and to be good and okay with change, when we are not actually being forced to do it.” - Mandy Trapp
“Right now we’re being told how divided we are and how different we are from each other. We have way more in common. We have greater opportunities when we can ban together on the commonalities which are love, collective joy and intention. There are so many things that we could be focusing on that we are not focusing on.” - Mandy Trapp

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.
