Thank you for interviewing with us today, can you introduce yourself to us?
I am Adale Boudreau; I live in Corbeil, Ontario, Canada, on beautiful Lake Nosbonsing above an airplane hanger with my husband Henri and my dog Discount. I believe we create our own reality that we get what we think about, and if we want a different life, we all have the ability to create it.
I am a Certified Master Coach Practitioner and facilitator of The Leadership Coach Practitioner Certification through the Certified Coaches Federation™, a coach with The Platinum Pro Coaching Business, a Health & Wellness Coach, and a Certified Law of Attraction/Allowing Your Success Coach.
Can you take us through your journey to where you are now?
After breaking off two engagements, being fired from my corporate career of 15 years, and gaining weight at the same speed, I was losing confidence. After some difficult reflection, I knew it was time for a change. Dedicating myself to a healthier lifestyle and falling in love with the new version of myself, I decided to purchase an underperforming weight loss franchise. Fast forward four years: my franchise was a top performer, shattering numerous sales records. I walked down the aisle and married my ideal man.
I had mastered my mindset, which allowed me to create a life of abundance in health, wealth, and happiness. After 16 years of owning my Weight Loss Franchise, I felt the calling to transition into one-on-one personal development coaching, where I continue to help countless women achieve the same results so they can feel empowered and fulfilled. Over the last few years, I have also begun to work with female entrepreneurs who want to add coaching to their respective fields.
What outlets do use for marketing?
I use all forms of Social Media, focusing on Facebook and Instagram. I like to build my following organically through referrals. It’s important to me to work with like-minded women
Which methods are you using to build your own support network?
I think it’s essential to have your own coach as a coach. My success has had a lot to do with my high level of personal accountability, but I can still be lazy and procrastinate like so many of us. Since I became a Certified Life Coach, I have worked with my Coach. It has been a game-changer for me.
What is the best piece of business advice you have received to date?
When you feel the fear, do it anyway! So often, we let fear of the unknown, fear of making a mistake, and fear of looking foolish keep us from going after what we want in life. We all still have the “caveman brain ‘ that is designed to keep us from not being eaten by the sabre-tooth tiger. Too often, we listen to it and don’t push past the fear. But when we do, everything we want is on the other side.
How do you create an evenly balanced work and personal life?
Covid was a big game-changer for me. It taught me to slow down, to take a breath. I started going for daily walks in nature. It is through nature that I learned to be present. Being present is where the joy is found. It’s allowed me to let go of any worry of the future and enjoy today.
Name a seminal point in your career so far?
Getting fired from my 15-year career was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. I thank the universe daily for that blessing. When I look back on it, I see I wasn’t truly happy with what I was doing, which is why I was overeating and unable to find the right life partner. Without that happening, I can’t imagine where I would be today and what kind of shape I would be in, physically or spiritually. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would become an entrepreneur, let alone become one of the top producers in the over 340 Franchisees. But, when we find and do something that we love, we can succeed beyond our wildest dreams.
These last 20 years have been a blessing that I am grateful for daily. I love my life!
What gives you ultimate career satisfaction?
Seeing women find self-love and acceptance by letting go of limiting beliefs that had held them back for so long and supporting female entrepreneurs to begin and grow their coaching business.
Are there any leading entrepreneurs or SME leaders that you admire, and if so, why?
I took my coaching certification through the Certified Coaches Federation™ and was honoured to work with Mike Chambers as my coach. He is the President of the parent company Healthy, Wealth and Wise®. He sets the bar high and pushes me out of my comfort zone, which I greatly appreciate.
Lindsey Anderson, President of The Build and Monetize Agency, Online Coaching Business Expert, Content Marketing Coach, creator of The Launch Circle and one of the most outstanding females I have met. Lindsey is not only superb at online marketing, but she is fantastic at being herself, being vulnerable and showing the rest of us how to excel at it. I have learned so much from her regarding content creation and launching, but watching her grow as a person, woman, and business leader since covid made many of us pivot has indeed been inspirational. When I watch her Instagram stories, it reminds me once again how important it is for all of us just to be ourselves!!
How do you define your own success?
Up until my mid to late forties, I would have defined success as obtaining enough financial security to work my own schedule while making a difference in my clients’ lives. However, as I approach my 60’s, success is about waking up every morning loving myself and my life and being open to the contrasting moments that the universe delivers to me to help me continue to grow and evolve. While making a difference in the lives, I am honoured to connect with.
Finally, What can we expect from you this year?
I have been asked by The Certified Coaches Federation™ to recreate their Certified Leadership Coach Practitioner Certification and become the new facilitator of their live online course. I am super honoured to be the course teacher and can’t wait to teach the first course in April 2022. I look forward to continuing my work with women to create their best life possible and supporting female entrepreneurs in developing their coaching businesses.
