Hi Vanessa, the Science Of People team & everyone on here!
I'm Pierre, from France, 33 years old and I absolutely want to be part of the July 2017 training program.
I love everything you do at SOP...no exageration. I got 3 SOP Udemy courses, your book "Captivate", watched tons of your Youtube videos & interviews with Lewis Howes, Chase Jarvis & Jordan Harbinger. I still have so much I wanna watch.
My background; I struggled with my self-image & my communication with others since early age. My "popular kid" older bro kept telling me I was too ugly for people to like me. As a result, I've decided to invest tons of energy in becoming the best human being I could be & observe people to discover how they work so, I could "compensate" my ugliness by knowledge and kindness and finally make people to like me. (Tricky master plan right…just remember, It’s been built up in a kid’s head! ahah)
It took me years to figure out that I was actually not the black swan and many more years to be able to act upon it. Since, I spread my wings but kept intact my love for getting to know people's mechanism and help them out.
Always fascinated by self development, I lived abroad +/- 7 years, I wanted to test my adaptability to a new environment, building a life & a social circle from scratch every time.
Florida (Too bad I haven't met Danielle from the SOP team back in the days), Switzerland, London,... where I went to become a social dynamics coach back in 2011 to help people getting better in social situations, seudction & in parallele worked as a PR. I ran an events company (Vesper Black) working mainly with prime nightclubs. I got to know & lived with lots of insanely interesting people and embarked on tons of crazy adventures.
Learn what makes people connect and teach it to those who have so much to give away but struggle to get it out to the world is, what makes me feel good. I need to feel as being a good person and as lame as it may sounds, making the world a tiny better. Make a living out of a passion, which does not harm anything, anybody or even our planet earth is simply magic.
4 years later, back in France, I came to realize that building up my communication business to help people to get the most of their life was the only thing that could drive me long term. I turned my ideas upside down for over a year 1/2. I recently quitted my job to create something similar to "Science of People" french version - smaller scale/no lab. Simply spreading the knowledge!
I am working on it, following an online course from a very famous french blogger to launch my business online as a start but I am so keen on public speaking gigs and live trainings.
I expect to get the "expert authority" pillar from being certified and recognized under your SOP flag after completing the non verbal trainer program as my coaching experiences & so on, have not been officially certified by some kind of title. This is mostly real life trainings and experiments, as valuable but not tangible.
Looking forward to be part of the family!
Send you lots of love,
