was even more proud of my son than ever, as he listened to you keenly
while taking down notes and important points! He was very excited about
the information you shared and he wrote down three questions for you!
And he asked you his questions for further clarification. He was very
satisfied with your responses and he asked me ” mom, when is the next
tele seminar?”…Feedback from an excited parent whose son recently participated in one of her tele seminars
Meet Dr. Nicholas Ambe..She is a force to reckon with for lack of a better phrase to describe this dynamic lady
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.
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
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
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.
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
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
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.
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
