Hi, I'm Carrie Gillaspie. I believe our world gets bigger when we bring our whole, authentic selves to the table each and every day. I'm the first to admit, vulnerability and authenticity can be scary words. So how do we forge through the unavoidable heartbreak and scariness that comes with living life?

My answer is connection. And not scripted, surface deep connection - real, candid connection. That's where this podcast comes into play. In Candidly Speaking, I bring relatable and authentic interviews, conversations, and messages on self-improvement, wellness, mindset, and motivation all in the hopes of inspiring you to pursue life as your whole, authentic self.
