"Motorvationally Speaking" - Soap Star

“Les remords sur le passé et la crainte des lendemains tuent l’espoir”
“Remorse over the past and fear of tomorrow kills hope.”

Samuel is the kind of guy who is always bubbling with enthusiasm about the life of business and the business of life.

Still in his early thirties, he has already played a key role in the rapid growth of many Canadian start-up companies.

Armed with a degree in Business Administration from UNB, specializing in International Business , Samuel joined a handful of entrepreneurs to launch Canada¹s premier pet insurance company in 2000 in Oakville Ontario. As a publicly traded company, it was recognized by PROFIT Magazine as being Canada's 2nd fastest growing company based on Sales for the fiscal years between 2000 to 2005.

His mandate completed, Samuel entered the industrial and commercial real estate business in Montreal before moving back to New Brunswick to assist a number of start ups such as Heritage Elevator, Focal Track Solutions and more notably Olivier Soapery in Ste Anne de Kent. As Director of Business Development, Samuel's primary focus is growing the Olivier distribution networks around the world, promoting a brand that aims to save the cultural heritage of soap crafting.

Samuel has also been a Parliamentary Page in Ottawa, a founding member of MASA (Men Against Sexual Aggression), founding President of SOAR-K (Student Organizing Aid and Relief for Kosovars). Lately, he has been volunteering as a Peer mentor for high risk boys in the Kent County area and helping the Moncton Womens Progress club raise money for Crossroad for Women.

Today on TSB, we get up close and personal with a Business Development star trying to change the world one soap at a time ... Samuel Saintonge!

"Motorvationally Speaking", on CHCD TV, is a weekly, internet-based show focused on people who embrace the power of positive thinking. The guests may not always be famous, but they are always enlightening, and each one of them has an interesting story to tell. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome as we do what we can to inspire, educate and motivate.

"I want to work for a company that contributes to and is part of the community. I want something not just to invest in. I want something to believe in"

Samuel! My fellow bachelor! It was great meeting you at the auction. I had no doubt that you were going to bring in the most money for Crossroads.

Congratulations on all your success in business and life!

Hope to see you this summer at the get-together.
