Full House to Full Plate with Candace Cameron Bure
Show Notes

“I really had to work my way back up, but I was never, ever willing to compromise.”

—Candace Cameron Bure

While you may know the name Candace Cameron from seeing her on The View or Full House (or through catching up on her new Netflix show Fuller House), you really need to know about her other work!

An accomplished entrepreneur and philanthropist, Candance has a west-coast-inspired fashion line on QVC, boasting inclusive sizing ranging from 3XS to 5XL. She also serves as a board member for the non-profit organization Skip1, which addresses hunger through renovating and building kitchens in schools and orphanages in impoverished areas, as well as organizing food and water distribution.

“Full House gave me a platform and recognition that helped me, but remember that was from when I was 10 to 18 years old,” Candance says. “A lot changes after 18. Once you become an adult, you have to forge your own way.”

In this conversation, we discuss why more clothing lines need to take an inclusive approach to sizing, Candace’s thoughts on the idea of being “self-made,” and how skipping a manicure or a few lattes can help ensure food security around the world.

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌

  • How Candance responded to frequent NOs while building her brand—and why she refuses to compromise on what she wants
  • Why her outlook and goals shifted in her 20s—and led to her eventual entrepreneurship
  • The importance of giving back to the community as an entrepreneur (and as a human being)!

Candace Cameron Bure is a former full-time co-host of ABC’s The View, currently stars in Netflix’s Emmy-nominated Fuller House, and is best known for portraying DJ Tanner in Full House. She is a bestselling author and fashion designer.
