It’s Lonely at the Top … or, Is It?

by candy barone Mar 21, 2022

As leaders, executives, and business owners, we often get told and believe that “it’s lonely at
the top.” That the higher you go and grow, the more you stand on an island of one.

 

What if, or better yet, imagine if … that was not the case.

 

Imagine if, instead of feeling isolated, alone, and like the lone wolf...

Baseball Is in My Blood: A Special Tribute to My Great Grandmother, a Woman Who Made Her-Story in a Big Way

by candy barone Mar 15, 2022

I am a huge baseball fan. I’m talking crazy, obsessed, nut-type of fan. In fact, when the Chicago Cubs finally won the World Series in 2016, I lost my freakin’ mind … seriously, it was both scary and comical at the same time. I get lost in the sport, emotionally, and totally invested.

 

You see, baseball is in my blood.

Procrastination vs. Purposeful Pressure

by candy barone Mar 01, 2022

I don’t know about you, but I love the feeling of things coming down to the wire. You know, that adrenaline rush of trying to bring something in at the 11th hour … that feeling of energy that builds up as you think about how much time you have left. 

 

There is something about that buildup that opens up huge creative...

The Value of a Relationship

by candy barone Feb 01, 2022

Aside from my time, I view my relationships and my network as one of the most valued and treasured aspects of my life, and of my business. I believe in creating the space and demonstrating the grace to cultivate and nurture real relationships.

 

Simply being linked on social media, or being on someone’s email list, doesn’t ...

Butter on My Waffles

by candy barone Jan 26, 2022

This past weekend, I indulged a little and made myself some waffles (they were only the good protein ones from the freezer section … but, still waffles, nonetheless). As I was beginning to butter my waffles after they popped up from my little toaster, I found myself amused at the way I was buttering them.

 

I was being very...

My Journey with Journaling

by candy barone Jan 18, 2022

Sometimes the thought of journaling overwhelms me. I find I am afraid. Afraid to put pen to paper. Afraid to uncover my truth. Afraid to really see myself. Afraid to find out what I truly need, what I really desire, and what is being asked of me.

 

I struggle with intimacy and vulnerability. This is a space I’ve tried to keep at...

Sacred Contracts: Why I Choose Them Over New Year’s Resolutions

by candy barone Jan 12, 2022

As we are heading into the middle of January (already), it’s so interesting to me the conversations we have around how we are going to “own the year” and that this is the “year of
YOU” … or, better yet, how it’s going to be a “New Year, New You” kind of thing.


And, what I have found over...

Happy TRUE Year: Leaning into Our Own Truth

by candy barone Jan 07, 2022

A dear friend shared a powerful post on New Year’s Day with me from DeVon Franklin (American film producer, and author of Live Free: Exceed Your Highest Expectations and The
Wait: A Powerful Practice for Finding the Love of Your Life and the Life You Love).


I have since read it 3 times now.


And, each time DeVon's message hits me harder,...

The 3 T's of Tithing

by candy barone Dec 01, 2021

As we are embarking upon the season of giving once again, I thought I’d take a moment to talk a little bit about the power and energy of tithing.

 

I know often times we hear the word tithing and it makes our body cringe. We have such notions, ideas, and programmed beliefs around what tithing is … and, in many cases, we are...
