How to Prepare for Maternity Leave as a Solopreneur, Plus Words of Wisdom After 5 Years in Business, with Candice Elliott

so ya wanna be a Sep 11, 2023

In May of 2021, we interviewed Candice Elliott to learn what it’s like to be an HR Consultant. At the time, she was pregnant with her first son and shared with us all of the plans she’d made to prepare for maternity leave.

More than two years later, we catch up with Candice to hear how those plans actually panned out (hint: it didn't quite go as expected...), what it’s like transitioning into motherhood as a business owner, and what she’s doing differently the second time around. Candice’s candor and words of wisdom will be helpful for anyone navigating maternity or paternity leave as solopreneurs. 

But wait, there’s more!

Candice has been in business for more than 5 years, so I couldn’t let her go without hearing more about that journey. We dive into her personal and professional growth, the various mentors and training programs that have helped her evolution, how she's incorporating AI into her biz, and invaluable advice on keeping clients satisfied.

Tune in for a deep dive into Candice's journey and gain invaluable insights that are sure to inspire and educate you!

You can check out her first interview right here (episode 41). All of the other resources we mention are linked below. Enjoy!
