No, Cowgirl Candace isn’t a talented musician, but strumming a guitar after every punch line along the shoreline goes over brilliantly with the people. One thing about me: I own up to my super-wild imagination and sarcastic humor. This month I wanted to fulfill a personal goal of beach bummin’ in Tybee while pretending to entertain folks with my amateur, guitar-playin’ skills. And it worked. Beach dwellers loved my look and random, witty behavior. Now when I’m not exercising my comedic abilities, I do wear other legit — and sometimes lucrative — creative roles worth exploring for my fashionable adventurers:
- Product Reviewing: Throughout my decade-plus career, I’ve tested so many random products — jewelry, boots, shampoos, dog leashes and Coast Guard-approved personal floatation devices — for national brands and publications. You name it, Cowgirl Candace has reviewed it for pay, and oftentimes, for keeps. So, if you’re a quick-witted writer, find products and services you dig, and start contributing for professional perks;
- Brand Campaigning: Serving as an ambassador for brands I’m truly passionate about is one of the coolest gigs I do on the daily. Developing engaging content around images, videos and illustrations to help sell ideas/products I believe in is so Southern belle boss. It builds meaningful industry relationships, which can turn into part-time and full-time magazine, marketing work; and
- Beauty/Fashion Modeling: Because I’m the South’s bowlegged bombshell, my phone blows up with modeling jobs all the time. Not really. However, I do occasionally snag modeling work from national companies to starter businesses looking for original stories that relate to their audience. My luscious dreadlocks, beautiful light-brown eyes and original, stellar Southern style helps open up these positions across the globe, so do work distinguishing features about yourself into beauty career opportunities.
