Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with François Sauro, President of Improov, located in Montreal, QC, Canada.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

Promoting the mastery of work tools on a daily basis means putting forward a human-centered approach. Transformative efficiency through the mastery of time and technological tools strikes a deeply human chord. It is rewarding. What if we approached it this way for a change?

Tell us about yourself

I'm passionate about efficiency, making things go better, managing my time, and knowing how precious Time is in our lives. I have an ADHD condition and feel how I can inspire people to improve their life for the best.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Starting from nothing (no business experience) and transformed over 12 years into a more experienced and solid entrepreneur that built a team that trained over 50 000 people in small training sessions.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Creating something out of thin air and often being unable to show exactly what you have in mind. You have to create many iterations before people finally understand what your vision was all along.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Make sure you surround yourself with quality people as soon as possible. So you don't have to do everything by yourself.
  2. Understand that if you want to be the best in your field, you WILL HAVE TO sacrifice something. If you want a Wholesome life, Entrepreneurship might not be for you.
  3. Execution and the timing of your idea are the 2 most important factors for success.
