Sustainable self-care for entrepreneurs

Justine Sones (www.justinesones.com) is a writer and stress management coach who loves drinking coffee, helping burnt-out humans set boundaries, and talking about things that hurt. During her career as a massage therapist, Justine’s practice was dedicated to exploring the roles that stress, pain, and relaxation play in healing the physical body. She came to realize that the support her clients needed required more than a massage, and made it her mission to help them. Justine now spends her time writing about feelings and coaching other over-functioning humans develop healthy boundaries and practice sustainable self-care as they navigate the messy intersections of partnering, parenting, -preneuring, and pandemicking.

Self-confidence is making a commitment to yourself and following it through

Jacqueline Frederick truly believes life is a gift every day. Her goal in life is to always live, laugh, love, and fulfill her plan and purpose. As a personal trainer, she saw the struggle as her clients tried to achieve their goals but experienced setbacks and failures through a lack of self-esteem and confidence – the very same issues she had struggled to overcome herself. Believing that she was not smart or capable enough kept her confidence low and her achievements minimal. Finding the strength to have confidence in herself was a game-changer; she learned that she can trust herself and that she can do anything. Now, she shares that same experience with her clients.

I show them that self-confidence is making a commitment to yourself and following it through. By creating a safe space for being vulnerable, I help my clients shed the weight of other people’s expectations, their own fears and stand with them every step of the way as they power through to their goals.

La bonne communication… un des conseils de Olivier Caré-ActionCoach Québec!

Passionné par l’aviation depuis son plus jeune âge, Olivier Caré a suivi des études d’ingénieur en mécanique aéronautique mais son goût pour l’entrepreneuriat et les technologies de l’information l’ont conduit sur une autre voie.

Ces 25 dernières années, il a donc évolué dans ce domaine, tout d’abord comme Directeur Technique Associé, puis dirigeant d’une entreprise spécialisée dans les Services informatiques pour les PME en France. Le développement de cette structure lui a permis de vivre plusieurs projets d’acquisition, fusion et cession dans un contexte international.

En 2014, il quitte la France pour le Québec afin de rejoindre l’équipe TI d’un grand groupe financier Canadien. Ayant occupé différentes fonctions de gestion dont celle de Directeur de la Sécurité de l’Information, et désireux de lancer un nouveau projet en tant qu’entrepreneur, il quitte le groupe en 2019 pour créer sa structure spécialisée dans l’accompagnement des dirigeants d’entreprises en s’appuyant sur une franchise déployée dans plus de 80 pays (ActionCOACH).

Sa priorité pour la suite de sa carrière est d’associer recherche de sens, respect de ses valeurs et actions en contribuant au développement de l’entreprenariat au sein de sa communauté. On le décrit comme étant rigoureux, professionnel, humain, loyal, curieux, et doté d’une forte capacité d’adaptation.

Marié et père de deux adolescents de 16 ans et 18 ans, il saisit toute l’importance d’avoir un équilibre entre sa vie professionnelle et personnelle.
