(SISS)  Hi Ginny, where are you from and where are you currently spending your time?  (Ginny Hooft)  I was born in The Netherlands, but raised in Thailand. I am currently spending most of my time in Jacksonville, FL.  (SISS)  What was one of the hardest things that you had to go through? What advice would you give someone going through the same struggle?  (Ginny Hooft)  While being young and even now at times, I think one of the hardest things is to train your mind to be strong. Since I was young, I was never really into having a lot of friends, so I dealt with a lot of emotions I went through myself and at times it got very tough, specially being young. It is almost like a mental war you are having with yourself and only you can change the situation. It did not have anything to do with being weak in my case, but it was more the things I went through and I would not let it go in my head. My advice to others would be, train your mind to be strong, think positive and find peace within. As you grow you will be more aware of things and that will also help. Ginny Hooft (SISS)  Founder of LoveCandle | SkinCare | Fitness #SISS Tell us more… who is @lovecandle93 and what are you most proud of?  (Ginny Hooft)  I am the CEO and founder of LoveCandle LLC. The reason I started making candles is, because I want to bring back the importance in life that we should focus on. Love, Joy and Happiness. Skincare is just something that I loved since I was younger. I think because I am so horrible at putting on makeup that I fell in love with just the natural look of what skincare can do for you. Also, I am appreciating my skin more than ever. Fitness was there from young age. My father Henri Hooft was a world champion kickboxer himself and is now the striking coach of UFC and Bellator fighters. He always told me that it was very important to be able to defend yourself as a woman. I love kickboxing and fitness. I would encourage woman around the world to practice kickboxing, it does so much for you. Your body, your mind and also for confidence. I am proud of the woman I am becoming.  (SISS)  Finish this sentence, I have a dream… ?  (Ginny Hooft)  I have a dream of giving and caring for everything around me. (SISS)  What makes you the happiest? What is fun for you?  (Ginny Hooft)  I am I blessed that makes me happy. I am healthy, my brain works, I can feel, I can see, I can hear, I have food, I have a roof, I have awesome parents that are enjoying life and I have a wonderful man who is growing everyday so all of that makes me happy. I honestly can have fun anywhere. I choose to have and be fun lol.  (SISS)  How do you deal with disappointment? How do you Keep Going?  (Ginny Hooft)  Easier said than done, but I try to not expect too much. You just gotta keep on going.  (SISS)  What is your superpower?  (Ginny Hooft)  There is just one me. Doesn’t matter what happens, now that is my superpower.  (SISS)  Finish the sentence, my life has gotten so much better since… ?  (Ginny Hooft)  My life has gotten so much better since I found peace within, there is so much focus within. Also, I am in charge of energies I am allowing into my life. That also made it much better.  (SISS)  Can you tell us four things people might not know about you?  (Ginny Hooft)  (1) I speak four languages, (2) I love spicy food, (3) I have a soft spot for kids and animals and (4) I am scared of mice.  (SISS)  Can you tell us where else can our readers follow your daily inspiration?  (Ginny Hooft)  Instagram: @lovecandle93 | FB: Ginny Hooft | Twiiter: Ginny HooftGinnyLovecandle | Website: (THIS WILL BE PUBLISHED WITHIN 2 WEEKS!)  (SISS)  Got a Story to Tell?

Just gotta move on and be happy.  (SISS)  What’s your favorite quote?  (Ginny Hooft)  Respect is how you treat everyone, not just those you want to impress.  (SISS)  At Smart is so sexy we love to see women who are thriving in their career or business.  What are you most passionate about?  (Ginny Hooft)  LoveCandle that is passion together with being the best version of myself.  (SISS)  Who was the most influential person in your life and why?  (Ginny Hooft)  I should not be naming one person. I got several, my grandmother, parents but also people that came in my life and left overall, they taught me a lot. Good and bad, there is balance.  (SISS)  Where were you five years ago? What advice would you tell your five years younger self?  (Ginny Hooft)  I was working my ass off for people that would not even appreciate 10% of what I was doing for them. My advice to my younger self is, if you can work your ass of for someone else, you might as well double work your ass off for yourself.  (SISS)  Can you take us through a typical day? From Waking up to going to bed, Can you give us a play by play of a typical day for you?  (Ginny Hooft)  I wake up around 7-8am. I work out, eat breakfast, clean the house and I work. I work on everything, my brain, my candles, the stock market. I do as much as I can. But everyday is a different day. (SISS)  What is your favorite book and/or the latest one you’ve read?  (Ginny Hooft)  The Secret(SISS)  What would be a good theme song for your life?  (Ginny Hooft)  I have been listening to a lot of Jeezy songs. Parry (my man) put me on it and it gives me motivation, but it also makes you want to go harder lol.  (SISS)  When do you feel the sexiest?  (Ginny Hooft)  Being myself 100%.  (SISS)  Is there someone on social media that inspires you and is a great follow?  (Ginny Hooft)  I am the worst when it comes to social media, but what people do for a good cause is what inspires me.  (SISS)  What does Smart is so Sexy mean to you?  (Ginny Hooft)  Exactly what it says. Brains! Being half naked, or being wild on social media gets so old. You want to have brains, manners, you want to speak words of kindness and mean something to someone. It is the whole package you know; I think people forget that. You want people to remember you for the good things you did. No one is going to remember you a hundred years from now dancing wild and being half naked.  Smart is so Sexy is more than a nice body, and a cute face. It has everything to do with how beautiful your heart is, your patience, your peace and respect.  I think that's sexy!  So, you are either a somebody or a nobody... (SISS)  Great interview Ginny, Thank you so much for sharing with us, Keep Going #SISS
