Ghost St-Patrick Is More Than A Fictional Character, He’s Your Modern Sensei!

Ghost St-Patrick is the gun-totting-evil-mastermind-Machiavelli-look-a-like life coach you always wished to get (even if you didn’t know it yet)

For those who lived under a rock for the past 2-3 years, Ghost St-Patrick is the main character of Power. The show is executive produced by 50 Cent and its the most popular drama/gangster TV show on earth at the moment.

“See, Short Term Thinking Creates Short Term Results”


The show evolves around Mr. St-Patrick’s desire to escape the drug trade by investing his dirty money in the nightlife industry to turn his life around.

On top of that, Ghost is also in love with his high school sweetheart who happens to be a lawyer for the prosecutor’s office (tricky right?!). Somehow someway, he finds himself in crazy situations that require him to be strategic and often leave a trail of dead bodies behind him.

The show beautifully shows the thin line between business and crime, friendship and betrayal and also power and downfalls.

Today we will overview 5 life lessons that Ghost St-Patrick taught us during the show (no his sex game is not a “life goal” fellas)

#1 Never Give People An Open Access To Your Life Or Your Business

When you call yourself Ghost there are a lot of things that come with that! Indeed James St-Patrick mastered the art of concealing his intentions and keeping people away from his business.

A part of it may comes from the fact that he needs to keep his family safe but on another note it’s all about being on top of your business.

When people can’t figure you out, figure out what you got going on or what’s your next move, you ALWAYS have the upper hedge.

When you deal with your girlfriend who’s working hand in hand with the FBI, a partner moving kilos like Pablo Emilio Escobar & running the biggest nightclub in your city; you have to draw lines between all those things (and stay alive in the process).   


#2 Stay Calm In Time Of Crisis & Plan Your Next Move

Ghost St-Patrick gets caught up in all sorts of bad situations like recently going to jail, dealing with his best friend trying to kill him and seeing his son turn into a “mini Ghost” in front of his very own eyes.

One thing we all have to admire about Ghost is his ability to keep his cool when things get heated (he’s like the New York gangster version of Neo at times).

A lot of times we believe that problems require an immediate response. By doing this we often make it worse than it initially was.

I mean James is able to face life and death situations with a “IDGAF” attitude and still manage to move his pawns better than the rest which also contributes to the epic season finales we’re all craving for. Keeping your cool when the going gets rough is a true sign of power (never mind the wordplay just bare with me) .


#3 Make Sure You Have Multiple Sources Of Income

This one was quite obvious but don’t take it to the extreme (for all my potential kingpins out there). At this point it’s just simple mathematics, the more stream of revenues you have, the more you can become a wealthy person.

If drug trafficking is not your forte try to find a passive income system or build something from scratch. No matter what you choose, you have to make sure it runs on its own and to pick something that allows you to still sleep at night.

#4 Get Yourself A Tommy

Tommy & Ghost had their fair share of ups and downs but they kept their brotherhood intact through it all.

Tommy may look like the total opposite of Ghost at times but that’s what keeps a balance in their partnership. You have to know your strengths and weaknesses and surround yourself with people that can fill those voids when it’s necessary.


Tommy is the man of action when things get complicated and Ghost is the mastermind that sets everything up.

Through whatever you’re trying to do, you have to build a team that can bring valuable assets to your ideas if not you’re completely wasting yours and their time.

#5 Family Comes First

Ghost St-Patrick is often perceived as selfish because he gave up his marriage to get his high school sweetheart (which is something I still can’t understand too well).

Regardless of how many hand in hand moments or hard-core sex scenes he has with Angela Valdes, Ghost thinks first and foremost about his kids.


Mr. St-Patrick has a lot on his plate but keeping his family safe financially and alive is what drives him (and also activates his killer instinct) .

No matter what goal, career or ambition you have in life, you will always achieve great things when you keep your family as a focal point.

What Do You Think?

I know I sound bias but between me and you, Power is one of my TV highlights of the past 5 years. What do you think about Ghost St-Patrick and the season 4 of the show (spoilers are welcomed for once)?

Myraï Lavoie Is Creating Her Own Universe And You’re Invited

What I appreciate the most about my work is the fact that I get to meet great minds & humans with a powerful story and this time around, I got to cross path with the talented Myraï Lavoie.

The city has been quiet fashion wise over the years and as platform that mostly talked about fashion in its inception, we’ve felt it the most over here.

There would be sparks of hope here and there but besides Festival De Mode & Design, not a lot of things really stood out.


When I heard about ”The Glitch” it’s like I knew what it was about without nothing what it was about.

I mean good branding is good branding but it was more so who’s behind the good branding this time around. I had the chance to work with Myraï Lavoie in the past and one thing I can is : there’s a method to her madness.


Every artist has an eye and that eye is shaped by our views of the world and life experiences. Myraï had an interesting life.

One where being different is actually the move. One where if you don’t fit somewhere, you don’t try to get in the mold, you bend it.

For all the lack of support or misunderstand she got in Montreal, she found a place to be creative working or being in room with the likes of Paris Hilton & P. Diddy to name a few.

What she’s learned from coming out of her shell and experiencing the world she’s about the share it with us with her own fashion called ”The Glitch” tonight.

”The Glitch” is exactly what I thought it was going to be. A standout experience and experience and something you’ve never seen before just like its creator.

We are now entering an era where we want to know more about what is going on on the other side of the world.

How people are living, their culture and what is their reality compared to ours.


Sometimes the depiction of such reality is either unfair or made to look down at somebody. Other times, filmmakers have the challenge to depict a reality in a way to uplift what other cultures are bringing to the table.

Milan Bihlmann and Muammer Yilmaz are two filmmakers who know where they stand when it comes to that.

Rêves D’Afrique” is the epidemy of that. The two filmmakers decided to go to 7 countries in Africa to not only paint the picture for the world but to give the good people out there something we forget to give one another : ”a piece of yourself’.

Armed with a backpack, film gear and true altruism, the duo spread love and good deeds wherever they could throughout their trip.

Les Grands Explorateurs being this platform to uncover the world made the right choice by adding this beautiful piece to their program.

Up until November 1st, you still have the chance to see the beautiful piece in theater and then online starting November 2nd.

Isabelle Mugwaneza Desmarais: An Unlikely Journey For An Unlikely Unique Success Story



isabelle mugwaneza desmarais

A Change Is Coming…Finally?

I grew up in the 90’s and although we can only realize it now but seeing people like Isabelle Mugwaneza Desmarais striving in a space where not a lot of us do is what was missing this whole time.

The thing about representation is that you won’t know you need it until you need it. As most of us were just looking at society, we didn’t see ourselves but also normalized it.

I think Isabelle saw something that we couldn’t see in ourselves. The truth is not at the extreme it’s right in the middle. The intersection between being different but also a part of the ecosystem was what she saw.


Representation is not about doing what’s right because it’s right but more so because it needs to be done.

Starting her career in the public sector wasn’t a thrill anymore. Then she did some soul searching and probably came to the conclusion we all come to at some point in our existence:

Life Is A Joke

For her it was literal though. She figured out that humor and the business around it was her calling so what was the first step? Becoming a comedian herself and teach a thing or two to Dave Chappelle?

What about producing your own show with up and coming artists? Well, for Isabelle Mugwaneza Desmarais the start of this new chapter was simple as getting a non-paid internship.


Just For Laughs became her new home and with that started her mission to be at the forefront of what the landscape in comedy was to become.

Through thick and thin, work and dedication, intuition and know-how, she pulled through and the big way too!

Isabelle Mugwaneza Desmarais became the director of ZooFest. With her pulse on the scene, she fought and pushed for upcoming talents that are more than just tanned.

We’re seeing more BIPOCs getting a chance on stage and I would like to believe that this is just the beginning.


Speaking of ZooFest, if you want to see for yourself how this festival has grown in diversity and get a good kick out of it. You still have the opportunity to do so tomorrow as the last day of the celebration

With french performers like Lenny M’BungaAZMarine EllaMeryem BenouaAyoub Marceau & Hugo.

Live podcasting will also be a part of the last run of the show. In the corner of Jeanne-Mance & Maisonneuve, you can can get a good view, a good potential date, you get to see greatness in all shapes, size or color AND of course a good laugh!
