My story so far as an entrepreneur B-School 2020 w/ Marie Forleo | CLAIRE SAMUEL’s Scholarship Entry

My friend my sister, below is my business and life story so far. I sent it to Marie Forleo and her team when I applied to b-school.

Hello Marie, my name is Claire. In 2011, I left an abusive relationship with a baby and a toddler. In 2013, I went back to college and passed the French bar exam three years after. In 2017, I had a massive burn-out and my kids had issues because I was never home, always working, usually 14 hours a day including week-ends sometimes.

So I quit the law firm. I started two YouTube channels: one in English Claire Samuel in English and one in French Claire Samuel en francais I post videos every day with healthy lifestyle tips to empower women. I also wrote a book called The Knot in the Spiral where I share how I rebuilt my life from nothing.

In January 2020, I launched a third YouTube channel French With a Smile to help English-speaking people learn French and promote the online lessons I offer on Preply.

I have been a single mum for almost ten years now and am reaching the end of my savings. Although I am very committed and hardworking, I do not earn enough money for the three of us and as you can see, we share a 25 square meter studio flat.

I need your help Marie to generate money with my book and YouTube channels so I can continue to empower women from my heart to theirs. Thank you Marie and the Team!

My friend my sister, I was not picked up to get a scholarship for b-school but I am working ever harder!

To support the channel, your donation is greatly needed and appreciated!

Blessings my friend my sister,

Claire

How to pass an oral exam or job interviews with success ? my four great tips

How to pass an oral exam or job interviews with success ? my four great tips

Whether you have an oral exam at university or an interview for a job, these four tips will help you my friend my sister:

1. When you enter the exam room, wait until you are told to sit down before doing it
2. Always look the people in front of you in their eyes while you speak. If the jury is composed of several persons, look at them alternatively without one of them feeling left out.
3. If one person has to leave the exam room, stand up.
4. When your speech or oral presentation is finished, simply say thank you and stop talking.
