I am Hélène
A lifestyle entrepreneur; Education is my passion, change is my way of being.
If you feel so inclined, you can read the story of my inner-life here.
The short version is I thrive on freedom, adventures, teaching others and conquering my dark parts. I learned to love them until they resume their proper function.
French is my first language so you will notice some weird turns of phrase here and there. Forgive my mistakes with English, it’s all part of my charm! If you do speak French, however, please visit my French site: www.helenenicole.com where I focus solely on abundance.
I have learned that every defect is a quality used in the wrong place.
I have changed my life from the inside out, again and again, to make my dreams come true, one by one. I did that despite my wounds, despite losing my way, again and again, erring and making all the mistakes one can make.
Using my qualities and my flaws as a guide towards change, I was able to create a way to earn; living the lifestyle I wanted while educating others.
I make my dreams come true. One by one. As they show up.
It’s never too late to make your dream come true.
I have practiced lifestyle entrepreneurship since I was 18. First with my mom, starting a daycare when I became a young mom. I have moved on to create La Capoterie – Condom Shack, Canada’s first condom specialized boutiques, of which 3 are still in operations nearly 30 years later. I then became a coach in the late 90’s when the profession was just starting. It was during that time that my next dream would come to me unexpectedly. I participated in a ‘Star for one-night’ evening, to encourage one of my clients. She put me on stage to sing in a chic piano bar. It changed my life.
That night, at 35, on a piano-bar stage in Montreal, I knew I wanted to sing more than anything else. I had never sung in public before. People told me I was too old. I thought I was too young to live the rest of my life wondering if I could have done it. So I did it!
Following my gut, I moved to Toronto and a few years later, (I substitute taught for a while to pay the bills), I was creating and producing kid’s shows full time. In the fall of 2016, after years of touring, 1200 school shows behind me and a lot of praise, I realized that I was satisfied. I had done it!
My dream had come true, I felt at peace and ready to move on.
It was scary at times to abandon a ship that had kept me afloat for so long, just on faith. A ship I had loved, a ship that took me all over my country. I had made over 200,000 kids fall in love with French with my extravagant multimedia shows. But it was over. I just knew it. But I had no idea what to do next.
I followed my heart once again and came back home to Quebec, in a small town in between Montreal and Vermont. Not knowing what it was I was to do. I just knew something amazing was around the corner. I was 52 and knew deeply something else wanted to come out of me.
I took a year’s sabbatical to figure myself out. It took me 4 years.
Being in between dreams is possibly the worse place for me to be; in uncertainty. I had on my dresser a sign that said: Rest into the unknown. Many times I asked my CPU (Creative Power of the Universe, my name for God), what do you want from me? The answer always :
I want you to be happy.
So I tried many things that made me happy for a while. I created a one-woman comedy show and recorded a live album. I wrote a book on abundance. I bought and renovated a century-old home. I attended seminars and read a ton of self-help books. But I did not find a passion that would give me the necessary energy to make any of these projects a long-standing success. I know the energy that is required to make a dream come true. I did not feel that energy just yet. I was getting impatient. And then, finally, I got it.
Canada’s most exciting school for the study of interior design.
I found my next calling participating in a vision board activity to celebrate a girlfriend’s business 3rd anniversary. My friend suggested we make a vision board of feelings, not things. The pile of magazines in front of me happened to be all about interior design. It dawned on me that I spent my life renovating houses and myself. I would teach inner beauty. I would show others how I had done it.
It was a scary idea. Who was I to think I could take others on a spiritual path? Then I read Brene Brown’s Daring Greatly.
And I knew I had to do it. It’s already happened and it’s pulling me forward.
That is how you know you’re on the right path. It’s pulling you.
Within you, it’s a done deal. It’s the law of attraction in motion. Now, my wish is that you find within you this place filled with beauty. And that you let it guide you to create even more beauty in and out of yourself. Helene’s inner beauty school is the next right thing for me.
I am here to guide you in your inner journey
What is your next right thing? What is your heart calling you to express next? I would love to grow with you.
