On this episode of the Kathryn for Real Podcast Kathryn Gordon is joined by Candy Valentino.
Originally from a rural, northeastern town, Candy started her very first business just out of high school. With only a high school diploma she has started, scaled, and successfully sold businesses in service, ecommerce, and product manufacturing in addition to creating a debt-free 8-figure real estate portfolio. She also founded a non-profit at just 26 and has been actively involved for almost 15 years, saving thousands of lives and personally raising millions of dollars.
During her two decades as an entrepreneur she has been named to Top Business Leaders 40 Under 40, Top 50 Women In Business, and 10 People Making a Difference, to name a few.
With a list of clientele that ranges from small business owners to 8-figure CEOs, to non-profits and members of Congress, Candy has bootstrapped, hustled, and persisted her way to creating a life of meaning and purpose, and she knows what it takes to create a strong and successful company.
The proprietary frameworks she’s created and trains and speaks on of the 7 Forces of a Powerful Business and Your Path to a Powerful Purpose were taken directly from the real life experiences that have made her the savvy business woman and purpose-drive leader she is today.
