When my daughter makes me sad or a #mummy on a #mission

When my daughter makes me sad or a #mummy on a #mission

I understand why my daughter dreams of the next pair of sneakers. You can be a bit materialistic when you are a teenager. However I feel a bit sad when she says she liked it when I was working in a law firm. Even though we did not see each other, I was earning money.

Today I am looking for a way to earn money through my creations, my videos, my books and teaching French on Skype. I am on a mission to empower women. I cannot fulfill my mission if I go back to the corporate world, even more so because I know it was making me ill. I had a burnout before I left the law firm. I feel I am now so much healthier and happier. I need to find a way to pay my rent and buy shoes to my beloved daughter once in a while.

How my #business #strategy changed within 10 years or from lack to #heart

How my #business #strategy changed within 10 years or from lack to heart

I started an online business many years ago, in an attempt to be a stay at home mum who supports her family.

However, my business strategy stemmed from fear of lack. I had to close the business down because I was loosing money.

Today I focus on being of value to others. I have written a book which I sell, while giving free videos and articles and clairesamuel.com to inspire women.

Why did I choose to go and live in Tunisia Africa? #newlife

Why did I choose to go and live in Tunisia Africa? #newlife

One member of our beautiful community asked me why I decided to go and live in Tunisia, Africa.

First I love this country for a reason which is difficult to explain. I feel like the spirit of this country is running through my veins. I feel like I am 9 years old again when I am in Tunisia. The air feels familiar. The magnificent ever-present sun, the softness of the weather, the beautiful blue sky together create a magical bubble. I feel I live in paradise. I feel like I can really fulfill my mission in Tunisia. Had I stayed in Paris, I would have gotten very ill.

Second, I wanted to go and live in Portugal because it was in the European Union. However I could not find schools where classes were taught in French for my kids. On the contrary, it is easy to find French schools in Tunisia.

Why I do not tell where my address is? #respect of my #children

Why I do not tell where my address is? #respect of my #children

One woman member of our beautiful community asked me where I lived in Tunisia, Africa because she knows this great country very well.

The reply implies my mission as well as my children.

I dedicate a large part of my days to creating content in writing and on video. This is how I fulfill my mission.

My aim is to empower women by being as true as possible.

However, such authenticity is not always flattering nor easy.

Therefore, I refuse to associate my children with the work I do for you.

Once they are older, they can evaluate things better and decide whether or not they wish to be linked to my content.

Why our ability to express is a gift #notgranted

Why our ability to express is a gift #notgranted

Recently I bit my tongue so hard that I could hardly speak. Probably magnesium deficiency. I will add more raw cacao to my diet.

Anyway, it taught me not to take my ability to speak whenever I want for granted.

Your voice matters my friend my sister. Please do not take your ability to speak for granted. Freedom of speech did not always exist. Knowing how to express yourself in multiple languages is a true gift; use it.

I am grateful, for my mic and for my phone. I am grateful for youtube for being a free platform which enriches my life so much.
