Lilou Mace (born Aurelie Mace, on the 20th of August 1977) is a French-American author, socialite, TV host and international Internet self-improvement guru, a prominent proponent of the “Law of Attraction” and a co-founder of Law-of-Attraction-based Internet community, The 100-Day Reality Challenge www.CoCreatingOurReality.com
. Her website describes her as an “Oprah-inspired 2.2-million-view YouTube phenomenon” www.LilouMace.com
Using Internet social networking sites and tools, such as YouTube, Twitter www.twitter.com/liloumace
and Facebook, www.facebook.com/liloumace
. Lilou has built an online following of thousands (she had 4,600 subscribers to her YouTube channel
on 25 June 2009).
Lilou believes that we can fulfill our potential and manifest our dreams by focusing our thoughts on what we want, as opposed to dwelling on what we do not want, in accordance with the Law of Attraction (as popularized in the movie and book The Secret). Her mission statement indicates that she aims, amongst other things, to “inspire, motivate and empower millions of people to pursue their dreams” and to “help spread joy, freedom and empowerment”.l
In April 2009 she self-published I Lost My Job and I Liked It
: 30-Day Law-of-Attraction Diary of a Dream Job Seeker.
Lilou’s Youtube videos (over 560 videos with over 2.2-million views by 15 June 2009) document her participation in the 100-Day Reality Challenge, described in more detail below, and also include interviews with popular self-improvement authors from all over the world.
EARLY LIFE AND STUDIES
Lilou was born in Santa Barbara, California, to French parents, Jean-Yves Mace and Irene Martin. Moving back to France and celebrating her first birthday in a transatlantic flight, Lilou grew up primarily in France Nantes and Cholet) and in the United States Scottsdale, Arizona, until 1996 when her studies helped her fulfil her passion to travel, discover new cultures and gain the International experience she had been longing for.
During her four-year Bachelor degree in European Business Studies (1996-2000), Lilou studied in ESC La Rochelle and Oxford Brookes University, and wrote her final year dissertation on “How to create a strong brand online”, graduating in 2000 with honours. Her major in International Marketing led her to increase her Internet and marketing skills during a 14-month internship for Nortel Networks in Mainhead, UK and in Silicon Valley, California, US.
Between November 2000 and October 2006, Lilou resided in Florida, mainly in Fort Lauderdale, after which she moved to Chicago, where she went on to meet her role model Oprah Winfrey, start her own cable TV show, initially called “My Juicy Life” (and then “Live a Juicy Life”), living there until the end of July 2008.
In July 2008, Lilou was offered a position In London as Internet Marketing Director for a luxury hotel sales-and-marketing company based in the United Kingdom. She moved back to Europe to take up this position, and only seven months later, on 16 February 2009, lost her job . The event proved to be life-changing and, in Lilou’s eyes an entirely positive development. It inspired her to put the Law of Attraction to the test and write her first book I Lost My Job and I Liked It: 30-Day Law-of-Attraction Diary of a D...
(first published as ISBN 978-0-9562546-0-3).
Turning the loss of her job into a promising career as a writer and publisher in under two months, Lilou announced the publication of her new book at the 2009 London Book Fair, and was congratulated by Mayor Boris Johnson for “turning [her] job loss to good economic account”, an event she documented on YouTube. The first copies of her book were printed at the London Book Fair on the Espresso Book Machine 2.0, destined for a Blackwell bookstore, a fitting birthplace for a book by former Internet Marketing Director Lilou whose use of modern communications technology was fundamental to the creation of “I Lost My Job and I Liked It”. She recorded her thoughts on her iPhone and the Flip video camera, and used the Internet (and, she says, the Law of Attraction) to source a transcription typist in the Philippines, the book’s Edinburgh-based editor, Dr R Eric Swanepoel, the typographer, Gerry Hillman (also Edinburgh-based), and London-based collaborators, photographer Jack Latimer, fashion designer Jeminee and Artistic Director , Marc Holland (who designed the book’s cover).
One of Lilou’s vision for the book is to have I Lost My Job and I Liked It turned into a Hollywood movie.
GUIDED VISUALISATION CD
Lilou has recorded several daily law-of-attraction visualization mp3
s to “help people attract their dream jobs; restore their natural weight, set daily intentions and shift their moods”. Her “gentle yet powerful visualizations” are one of the daily practices Lilou uses in her life “to manifest her dreams”. The tracks were recorded and commercialised in 2009 as “Law-of-Attraction Visualizations and Meditations”. Other practices of Lilou’s include creating vision boards, video-blogging, participating in the 100 Day Reality Challenge, masterminding, journaling, “being grateful and taking 100% responsibility in her life”.

The first thing most people notice about Laura is her head. At the age of 11, she lost all of her hair to a 'dis-ease' called Alopecia Areata. Besides having no hair, she is perfectly healthy. This is a condition that affects about 5 million people in America and 1.7 percent of the total population. It's not been an easy journey, though it's one that she is eternally grateful for.
Laura believes that “our biggest challenges will become our biggest blessings when we are willing to look for the gifts they bring.”
Laura formed her company I Shine Inc. in 2001; its mission is to generate the conversation of love around the world through speaking, TV, film and the web. Her first book, I Love You More, originally self-published sold over 179,000 copies. Since teaming up with Sourcebooks their numbers are now soaring to over 225,000 copies.
She has been featured in magazines and newspapers across the country including USA Today, Writer Magazine, EPregnancy, Pregnancy Magazines Buyer’s Guide and was selected as 1 of 10 people under the age of 40 making a difference in South Florida by Boca Magazine. Her book has been endorsed by several world renowned teachers including Wayne Dyer, Mark Victor Hansen, Jack Canfield, John Demartini and Alan Cohen.
Laura has created a program entitled “Self-Esteem through Love-Empowering our Children to Shine!” that she shares with students, parents and educators. She speaks to aspiring authors and self-publishers as well as management teams and marketers. She has spoken at functions for Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, the National Association of Women Writers, Gilda’s Club, Joe DiMaggio and Chris Everett Children’s Hospitals, Delta Airlines, New School Xango Event, The Learning Annex, as well as many others, including dozens of schools nationwide.
One of Laura’s intentions for Co-Creating Our Reality is to get the whole world talking, so that it will soon occur stranger to ignore one of our brothers or sisters than to speak to one another-connecting her global family both in cyberspace and in person. Imagine walking down a street, getting into an elevator or riding on a train and having it be “normal” or expected to have a conversation with anyone that’s around you?!
There is nothing Laura enjoys more than sharing her story so that it might inspire others to know that through the power of love anything is possible. www.LauraDuksta.com
