I choose my career path! And you?


April 2007: I am sitting among the 100 Most Powerful Women of the year, at the awards ceremony organized by the Women’s Executive Network of Quebec. I am attending this prestigious event with a sense of pride in the progress I have made since entering the labor market and that I occupy a challenging position in a large company.

To my left is Nicole Beaudoin, President and CEO of the Quebec Business Women Network (RFAQ) and winner of the category ‘Champion” that we celebrate today.

We discuss the mission of her company and the different components available to its members. What resonates most with me, is that unique self-help service offered – which bring together women from different backgrounds and businesses to provide professional support. At the end of this discussion, I sense that a new career awaits me.

January 2014: In the conference room of my company, I welcome Ms. Beaudoin as part of the certification process to the «We Connect» program. As I had not crossed her path, I took this opportunity to express my gratitude for giving me inspiration to expand the horizon of my abilities.

For me, the first step to prosperity was to form my own company.

And you, what will you do today for the rise of your professional life?
