Happiness Studies at Harvard show that complimenting or thanking someone in your network once a day can help make you happier.  

Here is a sample of some of the many hundreds of compliments I’ve received from happy clients I’ve had the privilege of working with and who inspire me daily.


“I admire you greatly.  In the short time I had the opportunity to experience you it was easy to see that you are a truly amazing person.  In a world filled with selfishness and hostility you stood out like a beacon.  A beacon of life, laughter, love, compassion and understanding. (…) You are a freaking champion Samantha Biron.  A stand alone, one of a kind, salt of the Earth, truly amazing champion. Don’t ever forget that.” Joel Dawes, Manager, Customer Service, Dollco

“I am just finishing reviewing our evaluations from the Conference in Montreal and had to let you know about the OVERWHELMINGLY positive reviews from the attendees! Many commented on what an amazing speaker you are, how fast the 3 hours went (that is a long period of time to keep these kids engaged), it was the best presentation they had seen, and how they learned about themselves and how to communicate with others. Thank you for being so great!” Sue Wood, Canadian 4-H Council, September 24, 2012

“Just a quick note to let you know that the session on stress management given today to us by Samantha Biron was just excellent. I think this is one of the best sessions I have seen in years at our company. All our staff really appreciated it; I think I have rarely seen such a consensus on the positive outcome of such a training session.” Sébastien Hamel, Director, FCM (Federation of Canadian Municipalities) October 2012
