Who is the Charminguy?

My name is João Carlos.. how do you pronounce that? Yeap.. and that's the reason I just go by JC. I was named after Juan Carlos, the king of Spain, who was a client of my fathers (tailor to celebrity's) whilst he was exiled in Portugal in the late 60's.

I was born in Lisbon Portugal, immigrated with my parents to Philadelphia at the age of 5, until the romance & charm of Europe called me back when I was 26. I've spent the greater part of my life loving and looking for love, and I've been inspired to share my journey, knowledge & lifetime of experiences with you.

My intention is that I can save you some headaches & heartbreaks.. whilst living the coolest loving relationship you could ever imagine.

You can also checkout what I'm up to at Year of Living and Tango DIva. So.. how can I be of service to you today?

Life, love & success Dream Coach. Empowering greater romance & charm in your relationships.

Solid relationships = dedicated time

I read a fascinating article today entitled "Are You Making Enough Time for Your Relationship?". I though it was a powerful question and it led me to read on.

What I found most interesting is the quality of time that is required to maintain a solid relationship, as well as the need of at least 15 hours per week! WOW, 15 hours of solid conversation or intimate activity? Can you say you're "taking care of… Continue

London cab in Barcelona

Maria & I recently fulfilled our annual tradition of going to Cirque du Soleil. This time around we saw Quidam. But getting to the circus was the highlight of the night and I'd encourage any Charminguy to "suss-out" (aussie for find) one of two currently functioning London style taxi's in Barcelona.

We caught it at Plaza… Continue

Vivian's Birthday

My good mate Orrin was in town from South Africa this past weekend and he was asking about a romantic restaurant recommendation for his wife Veronica for her birthday. Little did he know he'd get a whole experience out of it.. here's the sms I sent him;

From Hotel OMM..down the main street passeig de gracia to the end, with El Corte Ingles (large department store on you left) go into the "gothic" neighborhood straight ahead. This is an open area that has Maximo Dutti, Zara &… Continue

Keeping the Love Tank Full – The Charminguys’ View on "Love is Learned"

The following are my brief points of view on the quotes in this years inaugural November 30th edition of Dr. Gary Chapman’s “The Love Language Minutes” newsletter.

Love is Learned

Marriage is designed by God to meet our deep need for intimacy and love. Again and again I have heard the words “Our love is gone, our relationship is dead. We used to feel close, but not now. We don’t meet each other’s needs.” Their stories bear… Continue

Keeping the Love Tank Full – The Charminguys’ View on “Speak Their Language”

The following are my brief points of view on the quotes in this years inaugural November 30th edition of Dr. Gary Chapman’s “The Love Language Minutes” newsletter.

Speak Their Language

The need to feel loved by one’s spouse is at the heart of marital desires. I believe this need can be met in any marriage, if each of them will discover the primary love language of their spouse and speak it regularly. There are only five love… Continue

Keeping the Love Tank Full – The Charminguys’ View on “Running on Empty”

The following are my brief points of view on the quotes in this years inaugural November 30th edition of Dr. Gary Chapman’s “The Love Language Minutes” newsletter.

Running on Empty

I liked the metaphor the first time I heard it: “Inside every child is an ‘emotional tank’ waiting to be filled. When a child really feels loved, he will develop normally, but when the love tank is empty, the child will misbehave. Their misbehavior is a… Continue

Thank you to my gorgeous twin friends! Talk about dreams coming true.. how amazing is it when a guy can get two for the price of one!

I love you gals! Going to have to come to Hamburg soon to hangout with you! Maybe you can organize a Charminguy workshop so that I can come sooner ;-)

Well join in on the fun and inspiration whenever you like. Charming Angel yesterday loaded up two videos and I just love the Katie Melua one! I'll be getting more music on here as I start to upload more daily content from next week onward, so keep looking for new stuff here and I hope you enjoy it.. :-)

Thanks for your welcome, JC! Well, I suppose there is nothing doing - not even a wig will procure an entry into GBW :-) As to your question how to support people, it depends on what they are looking for. Are they looking for comfort then warm-hearted words will give them the right thing. If they looking for "hard facts" then the "WOW"-concept seems to be effective. Not a very simple question you asked me... I give it a think an come back on you when I've worked it out for myself, ok?

I'll need time to think about it in peace, JC. And I will be away on a seminar until next monday. (with no means of Internet... in the deepest aera of Lower Austria...). By the way - as I just saw your sons post - Happy Birthday and many more to come!

Hi JC, browsing my music I found "I'm your man" - Leonard Cohen (in my profile). I've always found it very... sexy. But also a bit insane :-) I love it. May be in the spirit of The Carminguy?

Blessings, JC!

I responded to an e-mail from Xing: "Jo㯠(JC) Duarte has sent you a new message" I read it, answered the Q, hit send!

I'm looking forward to spending some time on your website since I've not yet had the chance to do so.

Today I am "officially" beginning a new home-based business & soon I will look to join "Entrepreneurs Organization", as I see above that you are a member.

I have high goals that I know I can and will achieve quickly w/ the help of God, obedience, & self-discipline. I am motivated for so many reasons, but the first being financial independence in order to help other people who are in need.

I very much would like to meet like-minded people who love God, life and want to live passionately in all they do!

Have a fantastic day, JC, & thank you for writing to me!

Thanks, JC! Keep that positive energy coming! I tried to look at your wife's site/link, but because I'm not a member of EO, I was unable to see it. I was interested that she is from Belarus. I hired a young lady from Belarus for the summer & she was wonderful & I was sad to see her leave. I also hired a man, @ 68 yrs old, & we became fast friends. He is married to a wonderful young lady(23 yrs old) from Belarus & they really love each other & are a joy to be around. He could qualify as a "charminguy"!
Thanks again for the positive energy & for writing back!
