I just returned from a week in Montreal where I was attending the International Coach Federation Global Conference (I am a professional life & business coach). At the conference I had the chance to speak to many people from around the world as 43 (I saw the irony as well) countries were represented by over 1,400 coaches who were in attendance. Aside from the insightful and educational coaching related experiences I had during the week the other thing that kept coming up in conversations was how excited people were about Barack. On many occasions, people (from Europe, Asia & North America) were telling me that they felt the US was back on the right track and we should be proud having elected him President. Additionally, many Canadians told me that even though they were having their own elections during the same period; people were more excited about what was happening in the United States.
During some downtime at the conference I went for a walk thru the old section of Montreal (which is very French), and passed a gift shop that had amongst all of its Canadian & Quebec inspired products for sale, the t-shirt in the photo caught my eye the most. 4 years ago
