Excited to share with you a little of my story

I am Nadege Fleurimond: Entrepreneur, Coach, Speaker, Cultural Ambassador, Master of My Own Fate, and your Personal Cheerleader! If you landed on this site accidentally, stick around and have a read, hopefully, while having a drink; it will make me appear funnier.

I spent the first 10 years after high school trying to decide on a career path. Over the last decade, however, I realize that I did not have to choose one particular career path; I could instead craft my dreams and aspirations into reality and create a life and business that fulfill all my desires. My passions — love of food, need to serve, ability to create, a penchant for great gatherings, and a strong need to help others succeed — can all be intertwined. ROAR is for others like me, who prefer to craft their own path.

Graduating with a degree in Political Science, from Columbia University, my family wanted me to become a lawyer. And for a very long time, I believed that’s where my path lay. Even after starting my catering company, Fleurimond Catering, fears and doubts still lingered and lasted for years, as this was not my expected path.

After 15 years as a culinary professional and caterer, with clients including Dr. Mehmet Oz (Healthcorps), Paul Weiss, Stephen Colbert, Vivica A. Fox, BET, Ogilvy & Mather and the White House, most people would consider me a success. My friends and colleagues wanted nothing more than to see me evolve within this field. But while I loved cooking and catering, something still did not feel right. Though cooking and catering are my passions, I am much more.

I realized through the growth of my career one thing remained constant: People and my desire to see them become their best selves!

I love writing. So much so that I am a published author who has written two books. Also, I love my native land; my patriotism and love for my home country, Haiti, runs deep. As a proud Haitian, I wanted to share its beauty, culture and amazing history with the rest of the world. To combine these two loves, I wrote “Haiti Uncovered,” a coffee table cookbook which uses Haitian food to explore culture, gender, and class, and simultaneously educates the world about an amazing country, people, and cuisine. Through recipes, pictures, and anecdotes, “Haiti Uncovered” takes you on a journey of discovery.

For over a decade, I have taught cooking classes (which is still an activity we offer through Fleurimond Catering). Still, as much as I enjoy teaching others about the Culinary Arts, I am more enamored with the virtues the cooking process teaches: creativity, patience, loss, grief, willingness, perseverance, and acceptance, to name a few. In essence, learning how to cook can develop character. At one of my nutrition classes, I watched a football team of tall, muscular men, do dainty activities, as they delicately arrange their strawberries and other garnishes to their dessert platter. I have seen people explore and find parts of themselves they did not know existed. Their growth excited me. And the lifelong relationships and friendships forged from these gatherings only serve to reinforce my belief that beyond nourishment food is the tie that binds us all. I love writing. So much so that I am a published author who has written two books. Also, I love my native land; my patriotism and love for my home country, Haiti, runs deep.

Through recipes, pictures, and anecdotes, “Haiti Uncovered” takes you on a journey of discovery.

The team building element that developed from these culinary experiences later sparked my interest in the power of human connection and group coaching and support.

I’m an avid reader and love the work of Napoleon Hill and Jack Canfield. I formed a Mastermind group as a way to connect other individuals looking to grow and live out their passions. Over the past 5 years, the ROAR(link) mastermind group has helped individuals start businesses they never dreamed possible, confront toxic relationships that hindered their growth and find the courage to be vulnerable and allow true love into their lives.

I say all this to reinforce the importance of living in your purpose and not being afraid to aim and aim high! Your purpose is in no way connected to a specific job title. It is connected to you developing your environment to suit your happiness and ROAR! As important as adapting is, you gotta know it is just as important to shake things up and shape them into your vision. You have to take control for what you want.

For the longest time I tried to conform. Conform to my dads vision of what I should be doing with my life. Conform to what others ideas and desires were for me. But even in that attempt at conformity I failed. I failed because it wasn’t me. I knew my space was right here and in this moment. To have all these experiences and share them with you.

So as the team and I whip up another batch of delicious bread pudding to be shipped to our customers, or one of my consulting clients reaches out with a marketing dilemma for their business, or I am on a stage speaking to youth about the power of entrepreneurship, I realize as different as my various experiences may seem on the surface they are all connected by a common thread: Passion and the need to impact lives.

TIME to stop Wishing and start ROARing!
