An Interview With Candice Georgiadis

LIMIT SUGAR AND STRESS — Consuming sugar found in processed foods, fruit juices, and sugary soft drinks creates a constant state of high Inflammation in the body. Prolonged levels of stress also create high levels of damaging inflammation. This type of inflammation wreaks havoc on the gut, and a number of other areas in the body. This depletes the microbiome of beneficial bacteria and greatly lowers protective immunity.

I’m a real advocate for listening to calming music or making music yourself! If you don’t play an instrument or sing, you can tap your fingers to the beat in a song or move around a bit. Have a dance party with yourself or with a friend. Often times when we focus on the music outside of us or music we create within us, we are transported into a space of not feeling the pain. It’s like the music gives us permission to feel hopeful and relaxed.

I wish I knew how hard it would be to open a business bank. Even though my products are from the hemp plant and contain no THC, it’s very hard or expensive to open a business bank account. One bank wanted to charge me $1,500 just for the application fee and there was no guarantee that they would approve my application to even start a bank account there.

Women are judged more emotionally. Certain attributes that both men and women share can be received quite differently based on gender. The whole “Bossy versus Bitchy” dilemma. People see a woman walk into the room and if she’s too pretty they assume that’s why she’s there, or if she has a certain last name, its proof of nepotism. I don’t see my male counterparts facing similar superficial judgement.

Take the timeout before you need it. I wasn’t kidding when I said my therapist put me on time out. At the end of 2019, I decided to take a short-term disability leave. I was at the peak of my most intense burnout experience and, as I put it, “life was life-ing” and was taking more of the bandwidth that I realized. My dad’s fight with cancer and other aggressive health issues was intensifying, the family stuff that comes with that, dual career, cross country moves.

It’s not just about “leading” in the typical sense. It’s about listening, collaboration and encouragement. It’s about trusting the people on your team to take ownership and then stepping in to make quick decisions when you have to. And it’s about always leading by example — we still take the trash out at the end of the day, we always say thank you and we treat everyone as we want to be treated ourselves.

Be responsive. I’ve always been a planner, and when my dating blog first went viral, I had dreams of writing a book. I never planned to be a tech entrepreneur — in fact people would often ask when I would launch my own dating app, but I knew it wasn’t possible without serious funding. The best points of my career have come when I’ve been responsive to opportunities which have come my way. …

Never underestimate your power to do great things. The safety of a regular paying job kept me from ever being a true entrepreneur and now I realize much later that I could have achieved more. Importantly, also stay humble. Your actions should speak for themselves. Talented PR people don’t need to PR themselves.

Do something for yourself, whether it’s your nails, lashes, a facial, or a new outfit! I’m a firm believer if you look good, you’ll feel good, and go out into the world with a little more self-confidence.

I’ve always found beauty to be so inspirational, consumers get excited when they find a product they really love. I think technology will play a bigger and bigger role in helping the consumer find the product that’s right for her, that creates this emotional connection. I think discovery, more dynamic recommendations, and understanding the benefits via technology are going to become an expectation for consumers in the near future.
