Episode 133: Candice Brathwaite on Pull Not Push Energy

Oct 26th

I pulled together this season just before my baby girl arrived and changed my world. As always I let my curiosity lead the way when curating Wanna Be. This season is no different, and this time I speak to mums who continue to level up their careers after the babies arrive. I can assure you that while every guest is a parent, this isn’t a parenting podcast, so expect the same great practical steps to elevate your career.

Where do I even begin with this babe! Candice Brathwaite is a Sunday Times Bestselling author, journalist, TV presenter, and founder of Make Motherhood Diverse. Candice started her blogging career in 2016 and has turned her online presence into a very lucrative career. Her book I Am Not Your Baby Mother was a groundbreaking expose of the disparity black women face while pregnant in the UK healthcare system.

Candice is known to keep it 100 with you and she didn’t disappoint in today’s episode. Candice reveals the real reason she chose a career online as a blogger and influencer. She shares how she’s able to write a book a year. You’ll learn how she protects her energy and attracts so many lucrative opportunities. All this and so much more. Let’s get into it.

Candice was 100% worth the wait. This edit was tough I can’t lie, we chatted for a full hour and just know I could pull a part 2 out of this. Be sure to check out her books I Am Not Your Baby Mother, Sista Sister and her debut YA fiction novel Cuts Both Ways. If you liked her energy you can find Candice on Instagram @CandiceBrathwaite.

​​That’s a wrap, thank you so much for listening. I hope this half an hour has made you think, reflect and contemplate what your next step should be.
