What comes to mind when you hear the words ‘core gifts’? Some might immediately think about talents or skills. And yes, that is correct. According to our guest for today’s podcast, Ms. Britney Jeanine Canidate, these ‘core gifts are the things that show up no matter what you’re doing’, and no matter the job or position that you are in. Why are we talking about this? It’s because these gifts are essential if you are to make a major turn in your life to follow the path of being a successful entrepreneur.
In this episode of the DreamNation podcast, Brittany shares some tips and tricks to keep in mind if we are to walk the path of a successful entrepreneur. She is also going to share her insights based on her own experiences, her struggles, and the lessons that she learned along the way.
Brittany had quite a successful life while still young as she was able to earn her Masters in Public Relations & Corporate Communications. She was also a corporate worker of Pentagon. But her thirst in being her own boss kept on tapping on her until she gave in and became a wedding planner. She was able to stay as a planner for quite some time but because she didn’t have any solid plans, she ‘failed.’
However, being the strong and independent woman that she is, she was able to make a mega pivot which made her to who she is today: a successful entrepreneurial coach. If you are someone who takes inspiration from a story like Brittany’s, now is your chance to learn her secrets as you listen to the podcast. So, sit back, grab your notes and pen, and get ready to be amazed by her journey.

(5:48) I feel a lot of times we stay stuck in something just because we have the fear of the unknown.
(7:54) Ultimately you get to a point in business where you hit a brick wall. You’re burned out. Nothing makes sense.
(8:42) I tell all of my folks that I work with that sometimes we got to pop that bubble. Cause that’s a bubble that I lived in and it just kept me trapped.
