Today, I am presenting Genevieve Young. A creative serial entrepreneur from Quebec who had the chance to meet Oprah. I met her two years ago at one of her events Dreamclass. This movement is taking all over Quebec. Genevieve and her facilitators are on a mission to create a safe space for people to meet, to connect, to name and to share their dream publicly to accelerate its manifestation. She also has been a member of Women in Film, Television and New Media since 2009 and she is also a member of the Independent Journalists Association of Quebec (AJIQ).
Mlle Parker : Tell us who you are and what you do?
Genevieve Young : Wow, I do so many things. Let’s say that I am an author and a producer. I like to work with humans, I am like a journalist that puts light on humanity.
Mlle Parker : How did your passion and business idea came to light?
Genevieve Young : My path is very complicated. I have done so many things. Every time I would create something and feel a vibration, I would decide to do more of that thing in my life. I studied as a computer programmer, I am very far from that now. I don’t have one specific passion. I always keep in mind that things can change and that I am free to change. I recreate myself everyday.
Mlle Parker : What has been your best experience as an entrepreneur, thus far?
Genevieve Young : I have so many experiences. Creating my first business at 19 years old. I just knew that I could succeed. I love being an entrepreneur. Of course, meeting with Oprah was an extraordinary experience.
Mlle Parker : What is the best advice you ever received from your mentor?
Genevieve Young : It was from Jacque Salomé. He told me to never focus on the fear, but to focus on the desire behind the fear. So now, every time I fear something, I ask myself what is my biggest desire.Let go on the fear and focus on the desire #UnikLife Click To Tweet
Mlle Parker : What are your daily rituals ?
Genevieve Young : I meditate every day. I started meditating in 1998. I also like to jog for 20 min a day. It helps me to breath deeply and be more energetic.
Mlle Parker : What are you working on now ?
Genevieve Young : I wrote my first book in English, Constellation of Synchronicities. When I met Oprah and Iyanla Vanzant in Chicago couple years ago I realized that everything in life is synchronized and it has been so, for the past 13 years in my life. The book is a collection of short stories about my life that every one can connect to. And it invites people to focus on the synchronicity they have in their lives. Other than that, I also travel a lot for business and I have other projects coming up soon. Also, I am working on my sixth book.
Mlle Parker : Can you share some tips on how to generate an income when you have a new business idea ?
Genevieve Young : I make a plan and I am very creative. I build partnerships with other entrepreneurs and see how I can serve them first. For example, with my production company, I offer publicity.
Mlle Parker : What is one ambition you see for yourself ?
Genevieve Young : I don’t have a specific goal. My ambition is to always feel at my best, t0 have fun, to move forward and to bring something to others.
