The ultimate life hack is when your passion and purpose can fund a life that surpasses your wildest dreams. Now that Candiss Pitts has mastered this hack, she is helping others do the same as the founder of The Royal Shaman, a spiritual advising business that caters to CEOs and entrepreneurs who are the cream of the crop.

As one of five children raised by a single mother, financial hardship couldn’t seem to escape the now 30-year-old who felt as if she always had to pay for her mother’s past mistakes when it came to money. “At this point in my life, I’ve done really well for myself, but I will never forget the feeling of constantly being rejected because my mom had bad credit,” she said, according to the outlet.
