About Kandis

Kandis Marie... knows what it’s like to be an above-average person living an average life. From being undervalued as an employee; dealing with the nagging fear of being “let go” from her job or having to move on to another, Kandis spent years telling herself “Something has to change.”

She found a way.

There is a saying: “Done is better than perfect.” and Kandis shows people how to get sh!t done. She understands that there is more than one way to finish a race.

Although Kandis experienced learning difficulties and dropped out of high school, she continued to educate herself on mindset and entrepreneurship. She doesn’t define herself by the abuse she endured; instead she has evolved into a loving wife, an advocate for animals & nature, as well as her community.

Her role-model, her mom, taught her to help others and Kandis memorializes her "Ma" by weaving those lessons into her work and teachings.

Her efforts are realized today by helping motivated business owners join her gang of Goal Getters, embrace an unshakable belief in themselves, and find a way to level up their lives through an enlightened approach to entrepreneurship.

As Kandis likes to say, “Do what you can until you can do better.” Regardless of where you are starting from, Kandis can show you how to improve.

“Anything is possible” is not just a saying. Anything is possible!

That’s the Goal Getter Gang’s way. You have to believe -- in yourself and in all the possibilities of what could be.

Where you start isn’t where you have to end, and everything we go through is for our greatest good.

Start Marketing Smart is Kandis’ contribution to like-minded people who choose to live an aboveaverage life.

The SMS courses are designed to be actionable tools for members to learn business & mindset best practices and proven methods of business development and marketing.

Kandis and the SMS community of experienced entrepreneurs at her side will welcome you and show you how to become a successful entrepreneur and a contributing member of your community.
