Bouger parce qu’on s’aime! La philosophie de Cathy Lam

Même si Cathy Lam a démarré MonGymEnLigne en 3 mois, c’est l’histoire d’une vie qui se cache derrière sa persévérance.

Cette salle de sport virtuelle francophone est passée de 20 vidéos à son lancement en 2016 à plus de 800 vidéos d’entrainement en ligne en moins de 6 ans. Avec plus de 15 entraineurs qualifiés qui partagent ses valeurs, elle rejoint maintenant près de 20 000 personnes inscrites à leurs différents défis #Fitness. Elle rayonne de Québec à “WorldWide” puisque plusieurs membres européens l’ont adoptée.

Entraineur privé depuis 2011, c’est un évènement incomparable qui l’a complètement transformée: la naissance de Fiston. En effet, c’est à ce moment qu’elle a réalisé qu’elle a passé plus de 20 ans de sa vie à contrôler son poids, avec un manque envahissant d’estime de soi. Elle découvre alors que la pression sociale, l’idéal minceur et les standards de beauté ont ont eu un impact nocif sur sa propre vie, mais aussi, sur la vie de plusieurs.

Son histoire est unique – comme tout le monde! Sauf que c’est exactement à ce moment-là qu’elle de “changer le monde”. Pour léguer un meilleur monde à son fils.

Elle découvre alors une force, une confiance en elle, en ses capacités et en son corps qu’elle souhaite te transmettre. Elle a donc effectué un changement de carrière, en quittant son poste de directrice de restaurant pour se lancer en affaires afin de te transmettre ce bien-être intérieur.

“Quand ta motivation est plus grande que tes craintes, c’est là que tu peux réellement faire une différence, peu importe ton objectif” croit-elle fermement.

Depuis, elle aide les gens à reprendre leur pouvoir sur leur santé et leur estime de soi. Elle change peu à peu l’industrie du fitness en proposant des modèles sains et en dénonçant la pression sociale ainsi que les modèles irréalistes. Son objectif est d’améliorer non seulement ta condition physique, mais aussi de t’aider à découvrir ta force mentale et physique. Sa mission, c’est de t’aider à éliminer tes pensées limitantes et les métamorphoser en actions concrètes et motivantes.

To build a business successfully surround yourself with people who are smarter than you and let your ego go by the wayside

A fourth-generation entrepreneur and an iconic Canadian brand, Gillian Stein tells us what it takes to be the fourth generation to continue Henry’s success and speaks out about mental illness.

It’s clear that people truly do like a physical shopping experience. The important part is embracing both. The digital experience is a really important part of the customer shopping journey. So you need to make sure that you’re digital. But you also have to be physical, and for Henry’s the key is: what’s the value proposition?

We have setup the Henry’s Foundation in support of mental health. Our healthcare system is really not set up for mental health care. It’s a real challenge right now. When it comes to mental health, talk to somebody. The most important thing is to start talking.

Calgary-Based Entrepreneur is Changing the Way We Sleep

If you ask Lara Smith what led her to create Lusomé, she would tell you it was partly circumstantial, partly destiny.

She kicked off her 20-year career at two of the biggest fashion houses in the world – Ralph Lauren and Gucci – and quickly worked her way up as a senior executive at some of Canada’s largest retailers. There, she traveled the globe to discover and create innovative apparel solutions that would make a difference in the lives of consumers.

But it wasn’t until Lara watched her sister battle with breast cancer and the uncomfortable, long-term side effects that resulted from her treatments that she set out to find the most important solution of all – a solution to preventing overheating and night sweats in the clothing that is meant to make us feel beautiful. Lara looked throughout North America and Europe for a sleep brand with beautiful style and fabrics, but they were using 100% polyester and chemicals in the finishing process. Not to mention, their cooling technology never truly worked.

That’s when Lara decided to create her own solution, one that fuses beauty, comfort and science. Her vision came to life through Lusomé, a new pajama brand that promotes the health and sleep of its wearers through first-of-its-kind technology that stops night sweats before it starts.

Doing business with the 2nd most consumed beverage on the planet

Tracy Bell is a corporate exec turned start-up CEO.

In 2016, a health scare in the family prompted Tracy and her husband to reimagine the way tea is processed in an effort to extract more antioxidants. That concept led to the creation of a new category of tea – called Fresh-Leaf TEA – and a product that is being called “the future of tea” by industry leaders.

In 2017 their innovation was named Best New Product (Innovation category) at World Tea Expo. And in 2019 Millennia TEA was one of eight companies globally selected for participation in the #1 food innovation accelerator in the world, Food-X, in New York City.

Before Millennia TEA, Tracy worked as PR strategist and television reporter, receiving national and international accolades for her work.

Originally from Southern Ontario, Tracy has lived in Atlantic Canada for 15+ years and considers herself a full-fledged Maritimer. Tracy and her husband Rory live in New Brunswick with their two (awesome!) kids.
