Are you tired ?
Do you feel like you are running after time?
Do you ever ruminate? Even get depressed looking at your agenda or your income statement ?
What if you suffered from the famous entrepreneur stress ?

Stress is a nasty parasite that feeds on you in the shadows. You don’t necessarily pay attention to it. You think it’s okay to run when you’re a leader. Yes you talk about stress management in the company — but you think about your employees and collaborators. Not to you. …


I ask you the question, dear reader. Do you think you have the right to free yourself up time? Or do you feel guilty when you give yourself a break?

Most CEOs that I meet have a very strong sense of responsibility and I’m sure you are one of them. It is a great quality, essential for a contractor. But this one can become your worst enemy. For example when she whispers in your ear that, to manage your business well, you have to devote it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Imagine yourself as the Alice in…


“Customers”: the CEOs use this word over and over! You too surely think of them a lot. You especially wonder how to attract them to develop your professional activity. Finding clients for your business is essential. Many entrepreneurs have a rather risky commercial prospecting, without follow-up and without overall reflection. However, the strategy is essential, in this area as in all others. Imagine your customer is a needle in a haystack. Are you going to pick it up by hand? Or are you going to use a magnet? In this article, I explain the stages of a commercial prospecting effectively…


You have created your box for some time. You’ve done all the right things, it pretty much works, but there you have it: you feel the fatigue come down on you after weeks, months, sometimes a few years of total dedication to your business. company. You no longer know exactly where you are or where you are going. Your desires for development are there, but you don’t know how to achieve them and you even wonder if you have enough energy left for that. You are like a runner out of breath and a little lost in the race. What…


Your business, you created it with your own hands. She is part of you. She is a bit like your child and it is normal that you want to transmit your values to her. I would even say it’s completely legitimate. So you do it in your everyday life, but you navigate a little on sight: you sometimes find it complicated to integrate ethics into your business, that it involves sacrifices, that you have less room for maneuver. You even sometimes doubt: are you not taking a path strewn with pitfalls? Are you not harming your business? Are you too…


When you became a contractor, you thought you would find some form of freedom. Now it is the other way around: you are drowning in tasks and the responsibilities and no longer find a minute of your own for your family, your friends, your former hobbies… Perhaps you are even cutting back on your sleep to lengthen the days. Stop! It’s true that you have to give your all when starting a business, but you’re still supposed to find fulfillment there, not a new form of slavery. Your business should not be a ball that you drag around like the…


When you’re a business owner, you have to communicate. Business partners, customers and employees expect information, advice and guidance from you. Business communication has two definitions or at least two different targets: one is facing outward (this is the business communication as such) and the other works internally (this is the corporate communication).
