Interview with Candice Burrows (@candicecburrows)

77

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

I was an assistant producer for the Documentary called “A Women’s Work: The NFL Cheerleading Problem” that was premiered at The Tribeca Film Festival.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

I was actually bullied on social media from NFL cheerleaders who have no idea we are trying to increase their wage for being a professional athlete. They make less than ten dollars an hour in a twenty billion dollar industry.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

Create a vision board either in your mind or get a poster and some tape, a pair of scissors and start creating a blueprint of where you want to be in the future. That blueprint will help you fine-tune your goals.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

Napoleon Hill. I love listening to his audiobooks he sounds exactly like the actor Leslie Jordan from the movie “The Help.” He promotes the notions of ‘What you can conceive, you can achieve.’

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

I am a member of an organization called “Giving Goes Glam” collectively they raise hundreds of thousands to help members a community within Houston Texas flourish and get back in their feet. I’m also a member of an organization called Happy who obtains thousands of backpacks from the United School Districts where members fill the backpacks with non-perishable food that children can open and eat while home for the weekend.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

“You bring about what you think about.” I always try to think with a positive mindset, and if I find myself thinking about the dark side I remind myself of the people who I live and reflect on gratitude.
