"DESIGN YOUR LIFE"
Know thyself – Discovering your personal beliefs and expectations. Finding your passion. Why do you want to be an entrepreneur? What do you want your life’s contribution to be?
“I am French, born in New York and grew up in 6 different countries. I started in consulting, then got an MBA at Stanford and worked in 3 large media companies. I spent some years in venture capital exploring great ideas and helping build amazing companies. I then left to pursue my dream, started a few online businesses, (www.first30days.com, www.mindful365.com), wrote 4 books and now also do some talks and workshops. My focus is personal development, living consciously and making a difference.”
