“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.
I just helped another of my client clarify her ultimate career dream and the work she is here to do on the planet.
After 4 months of working together, this is what she said in our session last week:
“It’s like a North Star I can finally see and some kind of purpose. This is the first time I’m seeing that for a very long time. It was hidden. I’ve something I can work towards. It’s a huge relief, to not have this constant fear that I don’t know what I want; that what I’ll do will be a mistake.” (Shared with her permission; name kept confidential)
When we started together, like many of my clients, she was anxious about her future:
“I don’t know what I’m here for, what I’m supposed to do. I fear that what I’ll do will be a mistake.”
Now, only four months later, she is clear about her dream career and her purpose. She has found her North Star.
She wants to “found a business that develops solutions to help close the gap of inequality for women in the workplace. Covering aspects such as equal pay, equality of opportunity, and equal representation in executive leadership.”
She is only 27 and I know this will happen in her lifetime.
This is her DESTINY and she has what it takes to fulfill it.
You do too.
Whatever yours is.
and however old you are. I’ve helped clients in their 20’s all the way to clients in their 60’s.
If they did it, so can you.
P.S. Your North Star is waiting for you. Will you go and find it?
Contact her if you know of a web designer with WordPress knowledge who could help her redesign her website. It would be pro bono but she would “credit them in whatever way they would like.” Email Carla at:email@example.com
Please take a few minutes of your day right now to do one of these things.
Your action, however small, is helping in HEALING the Earth.
Are you expecting a big change in your career/life overnight?
Well, this is what my client Adam expected when he started working with me…
This is not how things played out for him… and for the better!
Following my guidance, using patience and listening to his own true voice, he ended up over time in the perfect work-life balance situation that matched everything he wanted, including releasing an album with his band!
Listen to his story in the video below.

When Adam started working with me:
He was bored, unchallenged, and depressed in his work.
The long daily commute was killing him, as well as working at a desk from 9 to 5, and lacking the flexibility and freedom he was craving.
As a result, he could not spend as much quality time with his partner and kids, and could not develop his passion to play drums as much as he desired. He wanted to be part of a band, but could not carve out enough time because of his commute and work situation.
Following my guidance through the Roadmap to the Career You Love program and listening to his own true voice, the perfect work/life situation progressively unfolded for him. Read his email below.
I thought I would take a minute to update you on my career since I went through your program last year. In short, I have made some subtle and not so subtle adjustments of my work role which has enabled a much better actualization of my true self!
My career “success story” is more subtle than other case studies but has worked wonderfully. I thought it would be good for you to have as a reference in the event others have a similar experience as mine. I think I was expecting a big change over night which is not how things played out but I ended up in a great work-life balance situation over time. Patience and listening to one’s true voice is the key!
I am still at the same company and working in the solar industry. I was able to transition my role to “Product Management” which actually plays wonderfully into my “Improviser” tendencies. It also does not involve managing people directly which I actually quite like because it facilitates my need to feel “free”. This is typical of product management roles where it involves collaborating (something I do well) with all parts of the organization but does not involve managing others peoples time. Better yet, I requested flexible hours (up to 50%) and work from home a majority of the time. The net result is having the security of a formal “job” but the flexibility of working for myself and dictating my own schedule.
My ability to negotiate this outcome was a direct result of the authentic-self work we did. I was very comfortable negotiation for this situation because I knew it would work better for me and so was able to convince my boss (the CEO) as well. But that’s not the best part….With my more flexible schedule I was invited to join a band. The universe delivered that one up right on cue!. My band has already recorded an album which is streaming on applemusic and spotify. We even did a little tour to Southern California a few weeks ago.
So, although I did not quit my corporate job and join the circus I was able to sculpt my career to what works best for me in a very non-traditional way.Simply knowing what I wanted and listening to my authentic self changed everything.
Thank you so much for your help. I hope this story will help someone else who may be struggling with what “success” looks like.
Here is his band: The Reverbivores. Adam is the guy on the right. You can find him on Spotify and Apple Music or use the link. Enjoy!
Are you ready to find your perfect work-life situation?
