Are you looking for more meaning and purpose in your career and in your life?
If you are like many of the clients I support and people I talk to, you probably are.
Well, if you are, there is a good question to ask yourself.
This is a question I often ask my private VIP clients looking for meaningful work. This is a topic we uncover that is deeply intertwined with their purpose and calling.
It was the case with one of my clients recently…
She came to me four months ago to find her career path and the meaning of her life. She said she had always been looking for the meaning of her life, but could never find it.
Well, after four months of deep dive into her core values and drivers, her natural talents, passions, and essence, we just clarified her biggest calling… Her mission is to help girls succeed and realize their dreams.
This is deeply resonant for her.
And I know this is it.
Do you know why I know it?
It is directly linked to her own life journey and her wounds from the past.
The biggest calling and purpose of your career and life is often linked to your biggest childhood wound OR to one of the biggest challenges you had to overcome in your life so far, and how you overcome it.
So here is the question for you to ponder…
>> What is the biggest life challenge or biggest childhood wound you had to overcome, and how you overcame it? What did you learn from it?
There is a gift in it. A gift for you and for the world.
I can’t wait for you to find it.
P.S. If you need help clarifying your career calling, or your meaningful career and life, I’d love to help. I’m currently accepting applications for private clients. 3 clients recently graduated; so I’ve 3 spots currently open. >> Apply here and I’ll be in touch.

Darius J. Mirshahzadeh invited me to his Live Stream Show – The Greatness Machine.
Darius was the organizer of TEDxGoldenGatePark and is one of the nation’s highest-rated CEOs by Glassdoor, he has cultivated a company renowned for “Growing Happiness.” He has led a cultural revolution in this industry that reverberates well beyond its scope and has been recognized in the New York Times and Inc. Magazine for innovation in corporate culture. He’s even writing a book about how to build a core value-driven organization.
“Before starting to work with Isabelle, I spent over 5 years trying to figure out why my current job doesn’t make me happy. Inside of me, I had a nagging feeling that there is something more to my career. I just couldn’t figure out what that is and I couldn’t explain why the everyday career coach couldn’t help me. Isabelle held a workshop and in that workshop, she explained how we need to find our true self. Only then, we can find our true calling.
As I worked with Isabelle, things just clicked. The exercises, the homework assignments, the discussions were so valuable to get me to where I am now. I gained confidence in myself, I discovered who I am as a person, and I saw the possibilities. It’s still surreal how I went from despair and frustration to total clarity about my true calling.
Once I figured out my path, there was no stopping me. I’m on a mission and every day I’m getting closer to making this dream a reality. Doors are opening for me every day, which is just another sign that I’m on the right path. I operate with strong and calm confidence.
Everyone should work with Isabelle at some point in their life – she is not just a career/life coach. She is your mentor and guide to your better self. Because of her, I understand myself better and as such I’m a better person overall.”
This is how she started. Exactly where you are now, with the same doubts, fears, and disbelief that you are probably feeling now.
Imagine being clear and on your path to the career you love by the end of 2020. How would you feel?
It is possible for you!
P.S. I currently have 3 spots open for my “Land the Career You Love” 1:1 coaching program. Is there one for you? Or for someone you know (spouse, relative, friend, co-worker, employee)? Please forward this email to them so that they can take advantage of this opportunity.
