Thousands of people around the world are getting inspired to start a business, work for themselves, and follow their passions. In fact, statistics have shown that over the last 20 years, the growth rate of non-employer businesses in the United States has grown by a whopping 62%! Payroll jobs, however, have only grown by about 12%. More and more people around the world are realizing the shaky ground that is occurring throughout “traditional employment” and deciding to take action and take their fate into their own hands.

On today’s episode of Fierce Feminine Leadership...

It took less than 2 years for CEO and Founder of BikiniLuxe, Candice Galek to  parlay her experience as a swimsuit model into a thriving multimillion dollar online swimwear business. What started as a tiny startup on her living room table in Miami Beach, FL  is now  a global powerhouse business with a team of 40 members worldwide and quarter million social media followers.

From the onset of BikiniLuxe, Candice realized she needed to leverage her wealth of knowledge about the swimsuit industry as well as the connections she had made during her modeling career to get BikiniLuxe off the ground. That coupled with her strong skillset in sales and customer relations laid the foundation for her success.

More about BikiniLuxe

  • They sell over 4000 swimwear products for women and men through the site.
  • Most of the brands represented on the site have demonstrated a corporate social responsibility in which they give back to the community.
  • Entering into their third year they’ll hit $5 million in sales.

Candice’s Advice to Entrepreneurs...

  • Be open to new ideas and push the boundaries
  • Leverage your connections to gain legitimate information and to gain new connections
  • When making connections make the highest connection you can possibly reach.
  • Don’t spend too much time on one thing.- pitch 20 people rather than spending a lot of time on one person
  • Look to large scale businesses to see what they are doing wrong and try and do it better
  • Be persistent
  • “Don’t spend your time or money on being boring.”


Candice on embracing controversy and being galvanizing in expressing your views.

  • Attention spans are short- people are one click away from scrolling by you and your content. Controversy can help keep people focused on you and your message. 
  • Controversy can be leveraged into massive social media reach.

  1. Celebration- Sarah celebrates every step of her business. All the little things need to be celebrated. No matter the results you have got out of your launch or event, you should still celebrate.
  2. Learn how to upgrade your thoughts-You need to learn how to look at things in a positive light, and look at them as upgrades.

Recently I was coaching a very successful, experienced, and established woman in business about speaking and taking the stage more, and she expressed to me that one of her number one concerns around doing that is opening herself up to public criticism.

When you are on a stage and somebody raises their hand to ask a question, there is always the possibility that you may encounter some kickback from an audience member.  Here's what you can do if you find yourself face-to-face with a dreaded heckler:

5 Tips to Handle Hecklers:

  1. Breathe. This is an opportunity for you to step into your leadership and demonstrate your poise. Do that by making sure that your brain is filled with good clean oxygen. 
  2. Determine if the person is simply asking a tough question or if it is a personal attack. If it's a tough question, you have several choices:
    1. You made endeavour to answer that question,
    2. You may respond with a question,
    3. You may pivot the question to something you actually want to talk about,
    4. Or you may simply say” let me get back to you on that, I don't have that information right now."
  3. Don’t engage, disengage. Do not respond to them by staring at them directly but by looking around at the audience while you are responding. Do not give a heckler energy and focus because that is what they feed on.
  4. If there is a rant, interrupt the rant. Say “Excuse me sir/ma'am, what is your question?” If they start ranting again you ask them to use the words “My question is” to receive more clarity.
  5. Ask for support. You may ask someone from your team to speak with this person individually or you may choose to involve the audience. You may say respectfully, to the audience, “Should I go on with the rest of my presentation, or do you want to hear more from this person?” At this point you will likely receive support to move on with your presentation.
