Virginia Presseault: Canadian Small Business Woman of the Month of April 2016


Virginia Presseault is a Life and Wellness Coach with her own private practice. She has been enthusiastically coaching people for years. She found her calling after working in the mental health field for 4 years, herself having suffered from anxiety and depression since her early teens.  As far back as she could remember she was on a quest to find healing techniques to help her feel a sense of wholeness again. She fervently believes in championing her clients to create and live their authentic lives.

She is a passionate storyteller and humorist who believes we all have a story to tell and that laughter is the best medicine. Her first book, “Mother Load” is a humorous and lighthearted story about a career woman with three dogs, two cats, a bag of crazy patients, a mystery to solve, and an overbearing Macedonian mother, with all of it leading to a series of amusing adventures and mishaps.

“Our Willingness to Invite Change: An Unconventional Approach to Coaching through Example, Reflection and Storytelling” is a compilation of the knowledge she acquired during her long journey to come to terms with and understand her anxiety and depression. Through a great deal of self-analysis, numerous insights came to light. When you learn, you teach and inspire others. Her love of storytelling helped her to convey her message with stories that capture the imagination and bring understanding in a unique way.


Our Q & A with Virginia

What Inspires You?

Warriors inspire me. The unsung heroes who stand up for truth and justice and devote their lives to elevating human consciousness through their tireless work each and every single day. Those that stand up for all sentient beings, and demand that compassion and fairness be our guide.

As a small business owner, what achievements make you most proud?

Through all the struggles of my life, I have remained open-hearted and compassionate and that I strive to impart the gifts that I gained to be of service to others. To be given the opportunity to share what I have learned and to possibly inspire others and assist them in my small way so they too can find their power within and hopefully from there be able to take that new awareness and share it with others.

What advice would you give to other aspiring small business owners?

Find a mentor, a support system that will help you to achieve all you seek. Having your own business can be a road fraught with challenges sometimes, so find those people that will uplift you, encourage you when you falter. I firmly believe in the power of someone standing behind, beside or with us as we journey to create our dreams.

What new things can we look forward to from your business in the upcoming year?

I would like to promote my book and write a sequel to “Mother Load.” I am also interested in setting up a center to teach and inspire.
