Everything Happens For A Reason. Be Resilient.”
My dad would say.

My parents came from “the old country.” My dad was Swiss, and my mom was French. I was the first person in my family to be born in America. My dad started a textile business in Greenville, South Carolina, in the 1970s and, with a few thousand dollars to his name, created a multi-million-dollar company.

My dad’s love languages were SUCCESS, HARD WORK, and PRECISION. He was my hero, and I always admired his resilience, work ethic, and commitment to excellence.

Unfortunately, he wasn’t my mom’s hero because of his intense focus on business success, he was rarely home due to business travel, and he was a womanizer. Having grown up in Paris, France, my mom didn’t acclimate to living in suburban America very well. She was not happy with my dad or her life in general. All this led to significant conflict between my parents and many intense and passionate arguments. When I was three years old, my mom divorced my dad and moved back to Paris, France. She left my brother and me with our dad, who did his best to raise us while running a business.

My dad primarily looked after us by having us work in his business. I started working for him when I was 11 years old. As a result, I started learning about work ethic, entrepreneurship, and what it takes to build a business at a young age.

One of the most important things I learned from my dad was the importance of maintaining a positive outlook on everything in life, no matter the circumstances, and even amidst tragedy. He often said, “Everything happens for a reason. Be Resilient.” My dad was my first mentor and my first introduction to Mindpower.

Thank goodness he instilled that wisdom in me because tragedy struck when I was 16 years old. My step-mom divorced my dad and abandoned me, my high school sweetheart broke up with me, my brother (another one of my heroes) moved out west to start a career, and my Dad left on a sabbatical and never came back. My world was collapsing before my very eyes!

What got me through it all? A voice in my ear saying,
“Stéphane. Everything happens for a reason. Be Resilient.”

I employed the resilience and work ethic I learned from my dad and started my first business, mowing lawns.

On top of that, as my world was falling apart and I was trying to put it back together, I was asked by my high school principal if I would be willing to coach and mentor other students at my school who were experiencing crises.

This was when I started really understanding Mindpower and would step into my purpose, which is to make a positive impact on the world and to help others to… Be Resilient.

At 21 years old, I began to leverage both my business-building experience and coaching experience to become a highly decorated INTRApreneur within some of the country’s top Fortune 500 companies.

I made my first million dollars in my mid-20s by outworking all my competitors and consistently reminding myself to… Be Resilient.


I grew up in a small town and was raised in a hardworking, blue-collar family. My father tirelessly provided for us, while my mother cared for my brother and me. I witnessed my parents struggle financially as we grew up, and I saw their determination to make ends meet. New clothes and toys were a rarity for me; I mostly relied on garage sales and hand-me-downs.

My brother, who was six years older than me, was my ultimate hero. While he shone brightly as an all-star athlete, known throughout the town as “The Dream,” I often found myself living in his shadow. Comparing myself to him, I couldn’t escape the feeling of not being good enough. I wondered where my place was in this world.

However, my true existential crisis unfolded in my early twenties. A series of events left me feeling lost, confused, and not knowing who I was. I slipped into a depression, neglecting my health and well-being, and succumbed to unhealthy habits for comfort. It wasn’t long before I noticed the weight I had gained, physically and emotionally.

Then, one day, I woke up! I decided to make a change, and that I could BE more, I could DO more, and I could HAVE more.

Flipping through a fitness magazine, I stumbled upon Jamie Eason, a famous fitness model who inspired me. Motivated to regain my health and confidence, I carried that magazine into an MMA fighting gym and approached a trainer, saying, “Can you help me look like this?” I expressed my desire for increased confidence and pleaded, “I need your help to get there.” Surprisingly, the trainer responded, “Alright, let’s do it!” And that began my path to resilience. It demanded immense hard work, determination, Mindpower, and unwavering resilience.

And I got my goal!

I uncovered the confidence that lay dormant within me. I embraced a healthy and fit lifestyle, ultimately transforming into a fitness model. Remarkably, my massive transformation attracted people who sought my guidance. For the first time in my life, others were asking me for help, and their requests ignited a newfound sense of purpose within me. I felt inspired to assist them on their transformational journeys and to help them become the best versions of themselves possible.
