Candace Jordan is a renaissance woman. She began her journey in tiny Dupo, Illinois, found her way to the St. Louis Playboy Club, then to Ms. December 1979 and numerous covers of the iconic magazine created by Hugh Hefner. Using her platform to the utmost, she would go on to capture the pulse of The Windy City, being named to three of Chicago's top 100 lists – 100 Most Powerful Chicagoans, 100 Women Making a Difference and 100 Women of Influence. CJ writes the Candid Candace column for the Chicago Tribune along with her own her Chicago Now blog and her own blog, CandidCandace.com
From helping to raise millions for charity to hanging out on the Red Carpet with Al Pacino to collecting rare books to being a voice for our four legged friends, she has much to say about the power of kindness, appreciating the journey and insisting that you are "more than enough" just as you are.
