With a passion and determination that knows no bounds, Véronique Fargeot has built a booming business at a remarkable rate with global entrepreneurship training company, Learning Enterprises Organisation Ltd (LEO).
In just over a year since joining the company, this true LEO ‘lioness’ has risen to reach the rank of Marketing Director, and her star is still seriously in the ascendant.
Located, rather appropriately, in Lyon, in the South of France, where the city’s mascot is the same as LEO’s – a lion – Véronique Fargeot is a force to be reckoned with. Leading highly successful teams of nearly 13,000 LEO Members across the globe, her progress has been outstanding since joining the company in April 2016.
Motivated by a genuine desire to help others develop and grow, with a background as a personal development coach, Véronique has found her calling with LEO – an organisation with values closely aligned to her own, to unleash human potential and inspire people to live their dreams. So, to gain a greater insight into the rapid rise of this high-flying, French direct selling professional, Ted Nuyten asked Véronique a few questions:
You have achieved so much in just over a year with LEO – what would you say is the secret to this stellar success?
Any success I have achieved is the result of teamwork and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank all my teams and my wonderful leaders who do an amazing job – we all move forward together! If there’s any other secret to my success, it’s down to my passion, determination and fierceness. I have learned to work hard and I always go above and beyond, by targeting what I want. I also use all the tools and methods I have learned as a personal development coach –
I have been teaching personal development since I was 21 and I am certified in many techniques. I believe that when we develop an optimistic, happy, passionate and determined personality, we end up attracting opportunities and extraordinary people, allowing us to achieve what is important to us! One hundred per cent of all the changes and successes that we experience in life always come through meeting people out of nowhere. We never succeed alone but always thanks to others. It is true to say that alone, we can go faster, but together we can go further!
What led you to join LEO and what do you like most about the organisation?
I admire LEO’s values – its integrity, transparency, ethics and sincerity. This company has a vision for the future that is ambitious and daring and that’s what I like. LEO is the concept of visionaries and pioneers! It has a business Ecosystem that comprises different sectors – eLearning, crowdfunding, cryptocurrency and LEO Banking. What I like most is its cryptocurrency, LEOcoin, as it represents the new economic shift that is taking place.
I also like LEOcrowd, its crowdfunding platform, which provides an alternate solution to help fulfil your dreams and start your own company when other traditional solutions just don’t work. When LEO came into my life, I was just starting to show an interest in cryptocurrency and I was approached by several companies, including LEO. Dan Andersson [LEO CEO] explained the business to me, and what touched me the most was his vision for the future, his values and, in a broad sense, his vision for humanity and the potential within everyone. LEO was created to support and help each person unleash their inner potential. I have shared this vision as well for a long time, so I made the decision to work with LEO and ever since I have worked daily with passion and determination to develop my LEO business.
What motivates you most to succeed in your LEO business?
Seeing my teams succeed and seeing results! My journey and my own results have an impact on my team globally. It is my duty to be a role model, to give them a boost and help incredible men and women reach the top, worldwide. What motivates me is to see my teams grow every day, not only in terms of numbers but mostly on a human and spiritual level, by connecting them to what motivates them, their own profound goals, and by giving them the key to succeed on their own and in turn have a great impact on the people that surround them – that’s how what I call ‘the virtuous circle of success’ happens! When my team Members see results, they start to have more self-confidence, they believe in themselves, they have more love for themselves and others, and that fuels leadership. When everyone is a winner, success is guaranteed.
You must have had to work very hard to achieve such success – how does this fit in with your family life?
I work full time for LEO. I am so passionate about it that time flies by very quickly! I am always on my computer or on a call with people worldwide and I regularly travel for LEO events across the globe, so I have had to learn to manage my time. Start-ups are very demanding and involve commitment, time, energy and focus to sustain momentum and the team’s energy. When I started with LEO, I had many personal challenges to deal with at the same time (health, family and life changes), but I chose to put my work with LEO first so that I could achieve my goals. I am not always available for my children, but I try to find a balance between my busy schedule and my children’s needs. It’s a delicate situation, especially given the size of my team, and it’s not always easy to manage with the children. But the price I have had to pay is really worth it for all the benefits of this work – more freedom, projects that are more appealing and fun on a daily basis.
What top tips would you give to other women who might want to start their own business?
First and foremost, you must reconnect with your own power. You need to have faith in yourself and believe that your dreams are possible. Women must awaken their ‘inner lioness’, as they have a tendency to belittle their power and talent. By finding something that motivates them to go above and beyond, and makes them passionate about what they do, they will start seeing results. When women become more determined and enthusiastic about their lives, by visualising a better quality of life and a better family life, they can achieve great results – this is something LEO can gives us all.
