Listen to this week's episode


Well hello there, and welcome to the first episode of The Power in Purpose Podcast.  I’m Candice Coppola, and I help creative entrepreneurs build a profitable business with purpose. I couldn't be more grateful that you are tuning in to listen to our very first episode. I mean that from the bottom of my heart– I feel so overjoyed to be able to do this, for you, and I’m looking forward to sharing what you can expect from this podcast in this episode– along with, the story about how I came to uncover MY purpose.

I believe that entrepreneurs who lead with their purpose are more successful, less likely to burn out, and deeply connected to why they do what they do.

The Power in Purpose Podcast is a business podcast that explores the stories behind some of the most successful entrepreneurs. How did they discover their purpose? What were they doing before they found success? How do they live and work each day on purpose, serving their customers better than any of their competition? Yes, folks — this is an interview show! And I like to call it a show of collective experiences.

I believe that have so much we can learn from those who came before us. All the entrepreneurs that we have as guests on our show are open and honest about what it took to get them to a point of living and working on purpose.

So you might be wondering what type of guests will we have on this show? My background is in the wedding industry– and yes, some of guests will be from that industry. But this show is more than just an industry; the guests I invite on the show are from diverse backgrounds and industries. So if you’re a maker, baker, creator– a photographer, artist, or lawyer– this podcast is for you– and the guests we have will make up all industries.

That’s because purpose isn’t about an industry. It’s fundamental. Foundational.

Purpose is truly the ♥ behind why we do what we do.

It’s why we wake up every morning, turn on that coffee pot (or tea kettle), and begin our day. It’s the driving force. Its what makes work enjoyable. It’s why we push ahead, with big ideas– outside of our fears and our comfort zone. So no matter why type of creative business you have, I promise there is always a place for you here at our table.

I’ve been so lucky and fortunate to be surrounded by some amazing creative entrepreneurs. They’re inspiring, their stories are unique and by sharing their purpose and the journey it took to get them there, I hope that you, the listener, will uncover YOUR purpose. Along the way, our experts will share the ups, downs, and pitfalls — and as you heard in the intro, with honesty and humor.

This podcast is a conversation that I hope leads to transformation for you. If you’re listening and you’re struggling to define or uncover your purpose– let me tell you friends, you’re in the right place. If you’re at a crossroads in your career– were you feel called or compelled to go in a new direction– then you too, are in the right place.

As you’ll hear later on in my story, I uncovered my purpose well into my business. So if you’re an established business owner and your struggling– and you’re finding that something is lacking in your business– it might just be not being able to answer this question: why do you do what you do? If you can’t answer that question in a way that serves your customers, than you too, my friend, are in the right place.

My hope for future episodes is to be able to interview YOU, the listener, on how this podcast helped you to uncover your purpose. My inbox is always open to you should you need anything or have an idea of how I can make this podcast serve YOU better. I truly mean that– get in touch– talk to me– I want to make sure that when you carve out an hour to listen to an episode it’s worth your time.

In this episode you'll learn:

  • All about the mission behind this Podcast and why I started it, for YOU!
  • My background and how I came to uncover and discover my purpose
  • The struggles I was going through at the time, including a divorce, depression and burn out
  • How purpose helped me to recover from that phase and reignited my passion
  • The beautiful aftermath of how purpose changed my life and my business
