I worked for many years in a job I was so done with so I know exactly the challenges you face when you want to start a side business you love. From the fear of starting a new project, to the deep desire of creating something of your own, to the anxiety of not knowing where to begin with when starting a business, to the lack of confidence in your entrepreneurs’ skills, to the fear of failure and more.

I believe that people who use their unique gift to create a business are more happy and successful. Why? Because they use what God, the Universe or whoever you believe in to make a real difference in the world. I show 9 to 5ers how to find their unique gift and use it to start a side business they love. Helping you achieve more happiness, abundance and success in your life is my way of making a positive difference in the world. 

I’m here to help you live the life of your dreams by sharing with you simple but effective tips to do more of what you love in your side business and in your life. Yes, even though you’re super busy, now is still the best time to start living with passion. I’ve deconstructed the business world and broke it down into clear steps you need to take to succeed. I’ll show you how to start your lucrative side business without having to quit your job.

At a very young age, we learn that to be accepted we need to fit in. Because we are wired to live in community, for too many of us this means settling for a regular job that pays the bill, but that doesn’t stimulate us.

The truth is that we all have a unique gift that we must share with the world. I believe that to succeed you have to put the real you forward. Your own way to see the world, your own personality. This is how you can turn literally anything into something unique and amazing that will help others at the same time.

My goal is to help you uncover the treasures that lie underneath the surface without having to leave the security and the benefits of your job. I do that by giving you simple and concrete tools to improve your life and find the time and the ressources so that you can shine from the inside out with a side business and life you love.

So if you’re tired of feeling like a servant at work and want the opportunity to find your unique gift and use it to start a side business you love or do more of what you really love, you’re at the right place.

You see, the business world was this complex matrix before. I had no clue where to start and what to do to succeed. So I really took the time to figure it out (I took business classes, studied, tones of business books, etc.) and I broke down the cruciales tools you need to use to have a successful side business. To me the business world is one where there are constant learning opportunities. I’m a bit of a nerd (in cool clothes) so this is one thing I love about business. Another thing I love is to share. So whenever I create amazing stuff and I learn new things that I think will help you do more of what you love, I’ll share it with you via my mailing list.

Stéphanie Dauphin has always been fascinated by the unique gifts residing inside each individual. This fascination led to an active study of the way human beings develop and how they embark on a journey to reach their full potential.

Stéphanie Dauphin holds a B. A in Psychology and a Masters in Social Work. She has worked as an educator and a social worker for 8 years. It is through her work that she was able to understand poverty as the biggest impediment to growth. Additionally, struggling to find happiness in her professional life and being surrounded by similarly unhappy professionals, she got curious about the patterns of unhappiness and unfulfillment. 

It is through these insightful experiences that Stéphanie Dauphin was able to understand Purpose to be the most powerful driver of positive change, one that elevates a person to enrich one’s life and the lives of others. In her hearth she knew that the best way to live a life full of purpose is by turning your unique gift into a business that serves others.

Everything changed when Stéphanie Dauphin had the opportunity to move to Europe for 5 years. Their, she took the time to deconstruct the business world: took business classes, read business books, etc. She also did case studies about 9 to 5ers who wanted to gradually make the leap in the business world: what challenges did they faced, what was the best way to help them make their dream of starting a business come true? 

She has since dedicated her career path to assist individuals discover their purpose so that they can start building the lucrative side business of their dreams, without having to leave the security of their job…yet.
