“HELPING PARENTS RAISE HIGH ACHIEVERS”…Meet CAMpreneur, DR. NICOLINEAMBE!!
Meet Dr. Nicholas Ambe..She is a force to reckon with for lack of a better phrase to describe this dynamic lady
Please tell us a bit about yourself. Who is Dr. Nicoline Ambe?
I am a former law professor, now a special Education Teacher in Compton, California. I am also a Keynote Speaker, Author, and Parent Mentor. I help parents prepare their children at home to become high achievers in school and to pursue their personal talent. I do this through a 3-step signature system – Prepare, Position and Pursue. The System is due out in a book and CD within one month.
In my personal life, I am a wife and mother of 3 girls, ages 13, 11, and 7.
What was the motivation to start working as a parenting mentor?
When I first started teaching special education and working with students who had been designated as having a disability, I realized that there was nothing “special” or “disabled” about my students. After many conversations with them and getting to know them personally, I was convinced that they were perfectly normal children, very intelligent and gifted, but needed more support and structure from home. I felt that parental influence was crucial in helping these students learn and excel in school. For this reason alone, I took to the community to show parents exactly how they can empower their children at home to do well in school. I’m excited to inform you that the message resonates well within the community and amongst parent groups.
You are also an Author, please tell us about your latest book?
Yes! The title of my book is “A Teacher’s Notes: Helping Parents Prepare their children at home for Success in School.” The book is based on my classroom experiences as a teacher. Throughout my teaching career, I garnered stories, experiences and incidences and shared them as lessons in this book.
I am currently working on a second book titled: “Prepare. Position. Pursue.” This book is a discussion of my signature solution to this critical parenting issue.
What are some of challenges of parenting in the US?
I think one of the biggest challenges of parenting in the US is that many children want to be, look and sound like everybody else. There is too much peer pressure and children do not understand why their parents are so anxious to protect them from the wrong influence.
Yes I have several upcoming events. They are listed on my website at www.nicolineambe.com/speaking. I get calls all the time to speak at events. I am particularly excited about the upcoming event in Bamenda, Cameroon on July 25 and 26, 2014. Ironically, I also get calls for non-parenting events. People who just want me to share empowering information with their audience. This is my ultimately goal – to become a world-renowned speaker
How do you manage such a busy schedule?
I keep something I call my “life script.” I carry it in my purse everywhere I go. My “life script” delineates every area of my life and the expectations to be met in that area. So I have expectations for “health” “Wealth” “passion” “family” and “friends.” I have set expectations for each of these areas and designated times to spend in each area. I believe in living a balanced life and making sure that all aspects of my life are fully taken care of. This is a goal that I have deliberately set an intention to achieve and it is helping me forge ahead in a consistent and predictable manner. I want to encourage your audience to try it too.
Do you have any words for people who want to pursue a passion like you?
Certainly! One the most important things I can say is that in order to succeed in doing what you love to do, you must read, listen to cds, dvds, attend trainings and learn everything that you can about making your passion marketable. It’s not enough to love what you do, you must make it meaningful and relevant to those who will be buying what you’re offering and this takes a specific set of skills. It’s also important to note that it will not happen overnight. It is a process that you must be willing to endure. One other thing I will also say is that branding is important. How people see you and how you present yourself, will determine whether people will be drawn to you. So you must be careful about how you put yourself and your message out there. It must be pristine and clear.
Any last words?
Yes! I want to congratulate you, and encourage you on your blog. I know your passion may change at some future date, as it usually does for many people, but I encourage you to stay on purpose. To stop all the distractions and focus on the things that will add value to your life and to other people’s lives. Thank you immensely for the opportunity to be a part of your blog. It’s a privilege that I am utterly grateful for. I look forward to collaborating with you in the very near future.
