My grandmother is my real-life beauty icon. She never took medicine, not even a Tylenol, nor ever did any cosmetic procedure to her face. She attributes her longevity to her love of people, parties, spirituality, daily naps and martinis. She is a great beauty for her wisdom, wit, adventure, and independent mind. She was an orphan by 11 years of age, never felt sorry for herself, and has lived an extraordinary life... those are the qualities I want to continue embracing as I grow older.

Our guest this week is Candice Bruder, owner of Pure Sweat + Float Studio, a one-of-a kind wellness destination offering full-spectrum infrared saunas and float therapy.

Before Candice dived head-first into life as a first-time entrepreneur, she cultivated over a decade of public relations expertise specializing in positioning, launching and promoting businesses in the luxury lifestyle, travel, entrepreneurial and real estate fields. She was a former Senior Vice President at Nadine Johnson & Associates and a Vice President at MWW, and has worked with brands including Dom Pérignon, Superfly Presents (founders of Bonnaroo), Related Companies, Time Warner Center (NYC), Hudson Yards (NYC), Eventbrite, Travelzoo, Luxury Retreats, The Beekman Hotel (NYC), Faena District (Miami) and countless others.

Candice moved to Nashville from New York City in 2015, and for over a year, would regularly commute to NYC from Nashville for work. It was during this time that Candice leaned on her love for a deep “shvitz” and float therapy as a way to reduce stress and the idea for Pure Sweat + Float Studio was born. In July 2016, Candice resigned from her position with NJA to focus exclusively on developing and launching Pure Sweat + Float Studio, and opened the doors in May 2017 in the Belle Meade neighborhood of Nashville.

In this episode, Candice talks about how she got her start as an entrepreneur and offers up some real-world advice to others looking to launch their own small business. Candice also talks all things beauty, including her oil-cleansing ritual and sharing her experience getting a vampire facial (thank you Kim Kardashian for putting that on our radars). She also tells us all about her 100 year old real-life beauty icon, her grandmother, the iconic and glamorous Brownie McLean from Palm Beach.
