Who are you during holiday season?

ID-100297297Christmas is approaching and every year, I take a moment to look at what’s happening in many families.

I find it sad to see all these people go into debt just to give gifts, to prepare big parties and on the 
other hand to see all these people feeling sad to be alone or not to be able to offer gifts.

If the commercial Christmas did not exist, there would less poor people and in debt, what do you think? And in fact, the main purpose of this day is not the number of gifts we give I believe. 😉

Giving gifts because we really feel it in our heart is one thing. Giving gifts because we feel obliged since it’s Christmas, is something else. When I met my wife 6 years ago now, I immediately told her that at Christmas and for her birthday, I would not give her gifts. Ouf, a shock for her since she had never been used to this and it “seemed wrong” for her. I told her that at any time of the year, when I would feel like giving her one, I would and never wait for a special occasion since everyday is special. The first year was difficult for her but now she understands the whole meaning of it. I also stopped giving a gift to my mother for Christmas the day we gave each other the same gift: a gift certificate from the same store and for the same amount !!! This is where I realized that the most important is to see each other from time to time over a good dinner and laugh. And for clothing now, it does not matter for me and  I’m often wearing jeans. I always dress like I feel in the morning, even at Christmas.:-) Continue reading

9 testimonials of people who propelled their dream because of a Dreamclass

A question I often hear: attending a Dreamclass, is it worth?

A Dreamclass is a workshop that allows you to use the power of a group to get resources, to create connections and to accelerate the manifestation of your projects, dreams, and goals. It is a propulsion towards your full realization.

You can achieve every dream you want, and everything is always perfect as it should, and that, no matter how long it takes.

If your dream is to have more money or customers, it is important to ask yourself this following question: Why do I want more money or customers? For what? Imagine if everyone would want more money, how would it be possible to help each other 😉

It’s important to be accurate with its dream. When our intention is clear, and our dream comes from the heart, only magic can happen.

Since one year, I saw all kinds of dreams come true through because of this event. Today, I want to present you 9 people who have propelled their dreams after participating in a Dreamclass:

1. Anna Giannone

anna giannone“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality, and so it is. My dream is to become an international speaker and have my TV talk show. Expressing my dreams out loud to the Dreamclass participants has set out the intention into the Universe, and it’s working. I gave 2 conferences to an audience of 200 people, and I recently joined the Huffington Post Blog team. I also had a Radio segment on CJAD 800 AM to talk about my stories and passion to assist Co-parents, Step-parents to shift their attention from negative personal aspects of their divorce to develop a harmonious family environment for the best interest of their children and for themselves. Dreams do come true !!!!”

2. Mélanie Ratté alias Mélou

“My dream was to entertain and help children by taking a character’s role. The Dreamclass helped to realize my dream. Today I became Melou, and I help children manage their emotions through movement and unique entertainment with my songs and my funny stories.”

3. Cindy Morin

“In the last Dreamclass, I realized my dream of connecting with awesome heart-based women. From this Dreamclass, I meet Carol-Chantal, and she asked me to be not only part of her BOD of Wow-World of Women Toronto but to be her Vice-President. This DreamClass has had a huge positive impact, and I cannot wait for the October one.”

5. Helen Tanyan

helen tanyan“I attended my first Dreamclass event last April in Montreal and the dream that I shared with the group is to develop partnerships with event-related industry experts to expand one of my product lines. The energy in the room was incredible, and I met so many people who referred me to event industry companies and professionals. Since then I met with one event planner and have meetings set up with a few more this coming fall. I highly recommend attending one of the Dreamclass events in your area!”

6. Mylène Sauvé

Mylène Sauvé

” When I attended a Dreamclass, I mentioned my dream of writing a book. Eventually, I was able to meet the right people to write it. I have published my book in French: La guerrière, le combat d’une femme pour sa liberté. ”

7. Régine Coicou

régine coicou“I participated in my first dream class in April 2015, and it has been one hell of an experience. Besides the fact that I was able to “refine” my dream and get a better understanding of what I truly wished for, more importantly it made me realize that I was also able to help others achieve their dream. As a bonus, I met women with whom I have developed great professional alliances and true friendship. It’s an experience I would encourage everyone to try at least once.”

8. Caroline Thélémarque

Caroline Thélémaque

” My dream was to see my company ” Le Club des Gazelles ” reach a total of 250 members in 2015. After attending the Dreamclass, I met extraordinary women who are now very active members of the Club. My Dreamclass experience was amazing.”

9. Tania Boucher

Tania Boucher

“Last spring, I went to a Dreamclass not knowing what I would do. It was one of the most memorable afternoon in my life filled with an energy of sharing and mutual aid. I had a piece of a dream that became clear because of the contacts I have made. A few months later, “ma voix, ta voie” will be launched and my dream will come true. Do not keep your dreams for you, they are worth sharing! ”


Isn’t this so beautiful to read these wonderful stories ?!

Conclusion:

Have dreams.
Dream Big.
Believe in your dreams.

6 reasons why use Google Plus vs Facebook for your business

google plus vs facebook

 

 

I receive a lot of these following questions: What is the difference between Google Plus vs Facebook? Is it important to use Google Plus as an entrepreneur?

1-The power of the circles

Google Plus offers the possibility to classify people you follow, by circles which are like folders. So when you post, you can show it only to certain circles of specific areas, which is a great way to target your customers.

On its part, Facebook does not offer this option with their business pages where it makes the posts lot more general.

2-The speed of Google Plus’ SEO Continue reading

target customers To attract your target customers, once you make the decision to create a social network account, it is important to keep them in action so people will get to know you better.

It is important to complete each section of your profile. It is like your business card for people to discover who you are. Each section must be completed by going straight to the point without losing people with long texts.

2-    Constancy

Be constant and publish every day. Still too many entrepreneurs forget this most important step. This step is necessary for your credibility. Post 1 to 3 times per day and test to find your business magic number for posting . It should never be under 1 time per day. You are on vacation? Then, program everything in advance. I tend to do more business with entrepreneurs who are constant with their social networks as opposed to those who have a presence from time to time only. And by committing to post every day, take care also of the people who follow you and comment. What a beautiful way of building strong business relations!

3-    Keywords

You probably heard about the term SEO (search engine optimization). With the millions of websites on Google, to appear in the first pages of this search engine would help your website and also your target customers to find you faster. Inserting the best keywords for your business in your social networks is also essential because millions of entrepreneurs are now using them and because of using your ideal keywords, your customers will find you much faster.

Conclusion

Apply these 3 precious tips day after day, month after month, year after year and you will obtain success.

5 basic tips to attract more clients with Linkedin

Linkedinastuces

Linkedin is the network of choice for connecting with other professionals.

Depending on your business, you will find either clients or strategic alliances, or entrepreneurs who will refer you to others.

1- Profile picture:
Have you uploaded a profile picture? To connect with other people, it is important to have one, a professional one, one that represent who you really are. Nobody is willing to connect with profiles without a picture.

2- Title:
Do you have a short targeted work title under your name when we arrive on your profile? Avoid falling into the trap of being too general by only writing: coach or speaker or real estate agent, etc. Add to your title your uniqueness that sets you apart from others in the same field of expertise.

3- Sections:
Take the time to carefully fill each sections of your profile. Your profile represents yourself. It becomes your business card. Would you rather like to leave a feeling of credibility or emptiness ?

4- New connections:
Connect with new people every week. Take time to care about them and avoid taking them as a number. There are specific actions to take when you connect with new people and create a personalize connection.

5- Posts:
Make sure you regularly publish new posts, even every day. Your new posts will appear in your contacts’ news feed. You want people to remember who you are and wanting to learn more about you and your business.

Conclusion

One key is to distinguish yourself on Linkedin and these 5 basic tips will help you do so. There are certainly many more tips to get results on Linkedin. Something I teach in private coaching.

I give, I don’t give, I give …

Oh dear Facebook which is now synonym with constant changes and headaches for many. Facebook shows less and less business page’s posts in the news feed simply because they want entrepreneurs to purchase advertisements. This is normal, Facebook is a business.

To purchase Facebook ads is one way to be more seen in the newsfeed. Now here is another way. On Facebook as on any other social networks in general, it is important to avoid falling into the trap of only posting and never take the time to leave comments on other pages. As in life in general, there is the principle of “Give and you shall receive”.

One way to increase your business page visibility and traffic is to create a synergy with other entrepreneurs. To do this, it is important to create interests lists on Facebook.

I invite you to watch this following video to learn how to create lists.



So is it necessary to reduce our presence on Facebook? No, it is always important to be there every day. I do not recommend you spend most of your time there. I encourage entrepreneurs to invest more time on Linkedin and Google Plus, Google Plus being very powerful.

Conclusion

Take time to create interest lists of all kind and targeted on Facebook, and keep the human side which will greatly help your business.
