Embracing Joy with “Chewbacca Mom” Candace Payne

Candace Payne became an overnight sensation when her Facebook Live video of her trying on a Chewbacca mask in a parking lot went viral. What do you do with that success? We dive into the whirlwind life of Candace with those why me moments and defiant joy!

What we talk about:

  • Growing up and moving around
  • The life of a bully and changed perspective
  • Who was that “Masked Women”
  • 15 minutes of fame
  • Writing a book and defiant joy
  • Why me and being intentional on a New Year

“I had no desire to make a quick buck or to get famous. I feel that 15 minutes of fame comment cracks me up every time I hear it. I feel if people really knew me, you would see a woman who has been obedient and not advantageous or opportunistic.”
