''You can take a horse to water, but you can't make it drink''. Somehow, Nathalie can.

Hi, I'm Nathalie! 

Do you talk to people like this?

"Hey, you look fat in these jeans!"

or

"Hey what’s up? You're starting your own business? It’s never gonna work, you’re not good enough..."

No way, right? Well, if we don’t talk to others like that, why do we talk to ourselves that way, in our heads? I certainly used to. 

Let me take you back to when I started speaking professionally, about 12 years ago. I needed a promotional video filmed, so we used three cameras: one for the wide angle, one for the close-ups, and one at the back, so the video could show the LARGE audience… the only problem was that there were no more than 20 people in the room! We kept asking them to move from one section to another so that when we would put all the segments together in editing, it would look like there was a huge crowd! LOL!

That video was the one that actually got me my first paid speaking engagement. I got a call from an organization who wanted me to train their sales force. They asked for my rate… I didn’t have a corporate rate. I went: "Um, $250?" They answered: "Okay, so for the full 4-hour training, that would be a thousand?" I had meant $250 for the whole thing! I retorted: "Um, yes, that’s correct. One thousand dollars." I nearly choked on my words! We booked a date for the training and I got the contract. I got the contract!

The truth is, I should have been excited, but when I hung up the phone, I felt like a fraud. I remember sitting in my office, hearing this nasty voice in my head telling me: "You aren't a REAL professional speaker, you don’t deserve a $1,000 paycheque for one afternoon of training." The video making the audience look bigger than it was and the made-up corporate rate... None if it was real. I was just trying to look like more than what I really was, because somehow, I felt like JUST me wasn’t enough.

Why am I telling you this story? How is it connected to Confidence?

Because thinking that we are not good enough is directly connected to Confidence and to our ability to live to our full potential. 

I was half-living. I was building my business “on the side” because I had this negative self-talk: "You gotta keep your full-time job, there’s no way you’re gonna make it as an entrepreneur…." I wanted to become a professional speaker, but that voice kept holding me back: "What? You want to be a speaker? In English? Ben voyons donc! Tu parles même pas anglais! You don’t even speak English! You want to write books too? In English? It's never gonna work!"

Let me take you back to that day, when I sat in my office feeling like a fraud as soon as I hung up the phone. That’s when I realized I needed to find a system to shut down that negative self-talk  and start changing the way I talk to myself!

So, I spent the last decade studying neuroscience and I created a system to reprogram our inner voice. It’s the D.N.A. System; the one I shared in my 8 International No.1 Bestselling books, the system that's at the root of all my online courses and the system I use with my one-on-one clients… I finally figured it out. Now, I can share and help you Find Confidence and Clarity so that you Can Unlock your Full Potential.

I am fascinated by the brain and by its astonishing power! I now teach how the brain works, how people use it wrong and the things you need to do to make it work for you.

I was born in Saint-Raymond, a small town near Quebec city, in Canada, and was raised by the most positive and amazing parents. I lived in Quebec for a big chunk of my life as a successful entrepreneur. I was a co-owner of a manufacturing business in the printing industry and had over 50 employees, mastering human resources and sales techniques. Then, I moved to Toronto, Ontario, where I got into fitness, personal training and nutrition consultation, all while accumulating 16 more years of experience in sales in the Natural Food industry.


After reaching the top of my game as the No.1 Fitness Instructor in Canada, I realized that being my own personal best wasn’t fulfilling enough for me. I started to realize that even though I was helping people, my clients were not becoming successful just because I gave them a better kale salad recipe or showed them a different way to squat. They thrived because they were changing the way they thought. That's when I traded the spandex and hand weights for a pen and paper and started to help my clients with their transformations by coaching their brains instead of their bodies. Working "in" instead of working "out". The system I created is inspired from my Master Practitioner Course in Neuro-Linguistic Programming and my Master Life Coaching certifications and combines my experience as an entrepreneur, my health and wellness knowledge along with the specific processes I use with the thousands of clients I have helped reach their full potential. I am also a certified Practitioner of the Reconsolidation of Traumatic Memories TM (RTM) Protocol, which helps people with trauma and PTSD get their life back.

I work with clients one-on-one and propel people into the life they want through my coaching, online courses, books, events, and speaking engagements Keynotes and Conferences. I also continue to teach fitness classes (33 years and counting), using fitness for my personal fitness goals and as an introductory platform in order to help people be their best. I also work with kids in schools, which gives me an even wider audience to impact, because I believe that if certain seeds are planted at a young age, flourishing happens sooner in life. The program I am the most proud of is certainly the THINK Yourself® POSITIVE for Kids program where children learn to transform their inner language in order to build self esteem and perseverance through The Adventures of Captain Vic and Captain Miserable. 

I have also built a full Online Coaching Certification to teach the D.N.A. System to others so that they can also transform lives around them as certified THINK Yourself® ACADEMY Life Coaches.

I am honoured to have recently received the 2021 Canadian Presenter of the Year Award and now live in White Rock, British Columbia in Canada with my loving husband Duff. He is the most inspiring and wonderful man in the world, and we are celebrating our 18th anniversary this year.

The Adventures of Captain Vic

Co-Founder TYA Education

MARIELLE-PLAMONDON

For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a teacher. My love of children has been with me for a long time. At the age of ten, I was already babysitting my young cousins. Later, I became involved in leading different groups of children in my community. Therefore, it was natural for me to choose a career in education.  While studying at university, I went to France to improve my skills as a summer camp instructor.  I worked there for a summer and came back filled with unique new experiences.


With my bachelor's degree, I left for Ontario to be a teacher. For six years, I taught French immersion: first for the Petawawa Military Base School, then for the Durham School Board of Education in Oshawa.  I taught kindergarten to grade seven. I was also a music teacher and a librarian. 

Back in Quebec in my native area, I still teach with the same passion, for Portneuf School District. With my guitar and my devoted puppet Pierre Roquet, I am perfectly happy with my precious students.


When Nathalie spoke to me about her project to create a program for children, her enthusiasm and dynamism easily convinced me to join her. We connected from the beginning and the pleasure of building this program grew unexpectedly fast.


Each story was tested with my kindergarten students. Their great interest in the characters and their adventures confirmed that we were on the right track and that this program filled a need. I also validated the questions and discussions with them for each unit. Adjustments were made along the way to enhance this program. Students often sing Captain Vic's song and remind me to give instructions with words that would please our Captain! These reminders clearly demonstrate the integration of the concepts taught.


It is with pride that we are now offering THINK Yourself® POSITIVE; a proven program to develop self-esteem, awareness of inner dialogue and positive thinking. Reprogramming thoughts with positive words is possible, even at the age of five.


I would have loved to have had access to the THINK Yourself® ACADEMY for Kids' programs thirty-three years ago when I started teaching, for the well-being of the students.
