LOLU™ - Leap Out & Level Up

Original & non-conformist business development coaching & mentoring for professionals and creatives with no patience for the label “starving artist.”

You’re legit at what you do, yet when it comes to business - you’re limited in what you know.

So imagine being limitless.

Imagine:

  • Knowing what to do next instead of fearing you will do it all wrong. 
  • Understanding selling is serving instead of believing selling is slimy.   
  • Streamlining your process, so you don’t feel pulled in one-hundred different directions. 
  • Progressing your business instead of procrastinating within it. 
  • Knowing you’re respected for you skillset instead of feeling like another disposable “creative.” 
  • Producing more instead of falling victim to inspiration-killing perfectionism. 
  • Leaping at your opportunities instead of telling yourself you aren’t ready. 
  • Being right in the middle of the game instead of standing outside of it. 
  • Having tons of excited buyers instead of just tons of Instagram followers (huge difference). 
  • Feeling well-connected instead of isolated in your entrepreneurial journey.  
  • Getting the right press so potential clients believe in you, not just your friends and grandmother. 

To know where to start, you first have to know where you stand.

And that’s how LOLU™ works:

During our complimentary, one-hour interview, we take a comprehensive look at your brand, your product, your ideal client, your numbers, your price, your margins, your market, your marketing, your beliefs, your story, your plans to “launch,” and your money goals – just to name a few things.

This helps us determine EVERYTHING – where you are, where you want to go, and what the problems are that stand in your way.

Assuming we’re a fit, you’ll receive a proposal for one-on-one business development coaching & mentoring tailored specifically to your business needs and goals, so you’re always taking smart, actionable steps to grow your brand.

Clients:

Depending on your needs, your LOLU™ tailoring could include:

You have the talent and intelligence to get your dream out into the world.

Question is - do you have what it takes to get out of your own way?

JULIEN MADE THE EXPERIENCE FUN AND ENGAGING FOR EVERY STAKEHOLDER IN THE BUSINESS
We wanted to further our strategy in a new category of our business (high-end jewelry) and to broadly understand how to represent multiple jewelry brands in a large-scale live luxury event. Julien made the experience fun and engaging for all business stakeholders. His professional ethic and his work approach to all the problems that arose during the project made it absolutely necessary to have him in the process. It has been great working with someone who is so knowledgeable and who walks you through every step of the process, making sure that the company, its employees and customers always receive the best.

UN « DIAMANT DUR À TROUVER » POUR TOUS CEUX QUI VEULENT COMMENCER
Quand je parle de toi avec quelqu'un je dis toujours que tu accompagnes, aides, soutiens, conseilles et écoutes. Que tu accompagnes les marques et les projets dans toutes les phases de leur développement. Que tu n'es pas une personne qui impose ses convictions, mais que tu te poses les bonnes questions pour qu'on se remette en question et qu'on avance dans la bonne direction. Que tu es sincère et direct, des attributs valorisants, puisque tu ne cherches pas à plaire à tout le monde, mais à partager avec eux ta vérité, tes valeurs, ta vision et ton opinion. De plus, tu analyses très bien la situation et tu sais où tu veux emmener les personnes avec qui tu travailles, mais tu leur accordes le temps nécessaire pour qu'elles découvrent elles-mêmes le chemin qu'elles doivent emprunter. Je termine généralement en disant que tu es un "diamant difficile à trouver" pour quiconque veut commencer.

IT IS EASY TO TALK ABOUT NEW IDEAS, BUT IT IS DIFFICULT TO CARRY OUT THEM
It is easy to talk about new ideas, but it is difficult to carry them out. If there is someone who is good at the latter, it is Julien. I had the honor of studying the altMBA with him, where I was able to discover first-hand his desire to learn, change and evolve. The clarity of his thinking and his ability to highlight the parts that matter most in each project never failed to impress me. If those are the skills you need to take your business to the next step, I highly recommend Julien. I am sure that, in just a few minutes, you will realize the value that he will bring.

Dear Julien, It has been an enlightening and transformative journey that has empowered me to discover my true worth, leverage my strengths, set meaningful goals, and gain a profound understanding of myself.

Your guidance allowed me to identify my unique abilities and talents, and understand how to apply them effectively in different areas of my life. This knowledge has boosted my confidence and empowered me to tackle challenges with a renewed sense of self-assurance. Moreover, your course helped me develop a deeper understanding of myself. Through various self-reflection exercises and thought-provoking discussions, I gained insights into my beliefs, fears, and motivations. This self-awareness has enabled me to make more conscious choices and cultivate healthier habits, both personally and professionally. Overall, the ten-session course has been a life-changing experience for me. Your expertise, compassionate guidance, and genuine care created an environment that fostered growth, self-acceptance, and personal breakthroughs.

THE CALM CONFIDENCE DEVELOPED IS A GIFT FOR LIFE!
I have known Julien for half my life now and witnessed his transformational journey over the last decade or so to become a phenomenal life coach. So when our son found himself facing a serious health issue which could potentially have life-changing consequences for him and expressed great doubts about where he was going, what the purpose was of everything that he had initiated and whether he had made the right choices in his young life, we immediately reached out to ask Julien whether he would step in and have a talk with our son…who reluctantly agreed. Julien's insistence that our son needed to make the decision and take the first steps has been crucial in the process that followed. So has his total commitment to keeping things between him and our son confidential, an aspect which was really reassuring as they set out on the path together. Today, our son is in a much better place than he has ever been in his young adult life. The clarity of purpose that he has found through the process and the calm confidence that he has developed is a gift for life!

THE BEST COACHING EXPERIENCE
In the space of just two months, Julien tapped into the deepest part of my ambitions. It probably sounds crazy, but at no time did I think that coaching of this type could bring so many benefits. Through intensive discussions with situational scenarios and a disconcerting look at the world of work, Julien prepared me for the start of my career. How to ace interviews, how to match your ambition to your abilities and how to say no are just a few examples of what I call a real experience. Beyond that, it is also a revelation on the personal side that takes place, as suddenly your short and long-term goals are clear, and everything becomes very simple, leaving time for your passion. I recommend Julien for his expertise but above all for his personal dedication and his commitment to spotlighting each personality.

LOVING THE PRESENT MOMENT
"Working with Julien is without a doubt one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I was going through the most difficult period of my life, both professionally and personally, when I heard about coaching. Being a high-level triathlete ( 25 hours of sport per week) is honestly not easy and a lot of questions arose about the sacrifices and decisions I was making at the time. Finding meaning in getting up every morning at 5 a.m. and being too worried about my future has caused me to have serious health problems. Thanks to my background and the work that I did at my own pace with Julien, I was able to learn, thanks to his skills, what I wanted to do and why while learning to know how to love the present moment. A few months later, after I started, many of my problems, which many thought could not be solved, disappeared. I consider myself extremely lucky to have met this person who knew how to carry out a real rescue."

THESE SESSIONS HAVE BROUGHT ME MORE THAN I COULD IMAGINE.
“Awesome, intriguing, and essential. Personal coaching and the development of my brand have become inseparable, evolving in perfect correlation. … Doing personal development coaching sessions is not as simple as that, you have to know how to push yourself to the limits, you have to be ready to let your unconscious take over your conscious mind and you have to trust yourself first and trust Julien. These sessions have brought me much more than I could imagine. Before that I was ignorant. Clueless about the questions I was asking myself when I was facing me. It is a journey that is not easy, but it turns out to be essential when we want to evolve on healthy foundations and create something that comes from our guts. “Know thyself” this sentence makes sense with Julien’s work. Private coaching and the development of my brand have become indissociable, evolving in perfect correlation.”
