At the end of January 2019, I discovered some Big Big news: I am pregnant (for the very first time in my life!!). Our baby is set to arrive towards the 1st week of October, and so I have a few months left of working during pregnancy to get ready for this big life change… and entrepreneurial journey change!!

Although I “felt ready” for a couple of years and was delighted when the happy news surfaced, I have to admit this has been challenging for me… How continue working during and after pregnancy?

You see, I LOVE working, I am PASSIONATE about having an impact and maximizing my potential (I am a “ruler” archetype meaning super determined but also a stubborn workaholic ^^).

My big fear or question has been: how can I continue growing my impact & revenues, if I can’t work as much (both during and after the pregnancy)?!

I DON’T HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS YET, BUT HERE IS WHAT I BELIEVE:

IT IS POSSIBLE TO ‘BOTH’ CREATE A POSITIVE IMPACT IN THE WORLD ‘AND’ HAVE A HAPPY BALANCED FAMILY LIFE.

And so after a number of emotional roller coaster (“it’s magic! I am so happy…. but wait, I need to stop taking on so many clients?!”) and a few emotional breakdowns (probably amplified by the pregnancy hormones… but breakdowns nevertheless including litters of tears and hours angry journalling ^^), I’ve made a few decisions :)

Again, I don’t have all the answers just yet but I want to share them with you… because all challenges come with an opportunity to grow beyond what would have been possible without.

I hope they will inspire you !

HERE ARE 3 BIG CHANGES I HAVE DECIDED TO IMPLEMENT TO CONTINUE WORKING DURING PREGNANCY, AND HOW IT MAY IMPACT YOU AS A MEMBER OF CREATORS FOR GOOD’S COMMUNITY:

BIG change #1: I will offer Discovery Sessions ONLY until May 20th 2019 this year

Starting from June, I’ll only work with existing clients (so I can slow down during my 3rd trimester, and take time of in the fall), and not offer any extra one-on-one support.

In other words, if you want to benefit from a free (and no-strings-attached) 45 minutes skype session with me, so that you can clarify your priorities and action-plan to make your impact dreams come true, click here ;)

ALSO AND FOR YOUR INFORMATION, I ONLY HAVE ***2 SPOTS*** LEFT TO JOIN ONE OF MY PROGRAMS IN 2019.

So if you want to either:

  • Find & validate your impact-driven business idea
  • OR validate & launch your impact-driven business (meaning build the foundations to have your first few clients)…
  • OR re-align your business model in order to reach financial sustainability...

before September, NOW is the time to get my help!
>> The first step is to apply for a discovery session so we can meet, and decide together if one of my programs could be a good fit for your current situation & goals.

BIG change #2: I have started to write a book!

I have decided to take on less one-on-one clients this year, and take 3 full months off my business (from September to November) as a maternity leave + work part time before & after.

Now if you know me, you know that I LOVE working and I LOVE my mission, and so it’s actually hard to make this decision to slow down. I know it’s good for my body, my baby, and my family’s ballance, but the ambitious side of me felt quite frustrated with the decisions… until the idea of writing a book emerged.

Or should I say “re-emerged”, because in fact it has been there – below the surface – for quite some time already!

I can’t tell you much about it yet, except that it will be a practical book to help citizens like you and me define their impact-driven business ideas thanks to a step-by-step methodology, practical guidelines and inspiring case studies.

Everything I learned and experience in the last 5 years mentoring over a 100 purpose-driven entrepreneurs, will be helping as many individuals as possible to turn their dreams into an actual, feasible & impactful business project !

BIG change #3 : I am developing more & more online courses!

Online courses are a great way to learn: I have myself joined a number of course since I became an entrepreneur so that I could make progress in specific areas (time management, marketing), and so I know it can be beneficial for my ideal clients.

It’s also a great way to share knowledge and so, create value & an impact on a bigger scale (it takes less time than 1on1 clients).
Win – Win!

My ambition for the few coming month is to:

  • Grow the online course Captivate (which I co-created with Change Creators magazine in order to help impact entrepreneurs use storytelling to improve their marketing),
  • And launch a series of affordable online courses in collaboration with my business bestie Danielle (with who I co-founded Changemakers Association) that will help purpose-driven entrepreneurs grow their business depending on where they are at precisely in their journey.

More about that soon, so stay tuned!
