Finding your Why in 2021

Finding your Why in 2021

“I found my Why.” 

This is what my client said last week after several months of working together. 

She had been looking for quite a while before working with me and could not find it. 

I have heard that many times for the past seven years I’ve been in practice. My clients had been looking and looking before working with me and could not find it. 

Some clients even said they took a course with Simon Sinek—a well-known inspirational speaker and author of five books, including “Start With Why”—or listened to other inspirational speakers—such as Tony Robbins and Brendon Burchard— and they are still clueless about their “Why,” their true calling. 

Then, they start working with me through my rigorous step-by-step process and they find it!

Listening to inspirational videos or taking a short online class is most often not enough to uncover your true calling and know with confidence this is it. This is why I created a dedicated, 1:1, step-by-step process to get there. And it works!

For the past seven years, I’ve helped hundreds of clients find their “Why.”

I’m not your traditional career coach. I help people who are ready to find their career calling—or their dream career—, not just a job. 

Will 2021 be the year you find your “Why” and the career that aligns with it?

Imagine ending 2021 crystal clear about your calling and doing work you are passionate about. How would that feel?

I’d love to help you get there. 

This is my calling, helping you find yours. 

Are you ready?

Apply here if you want 2021 to be the year you find your Why.

To your brilliance,

Isabelle 

P.S. Maybe you are clear on your “Why” already but know someone (friend, spouse, relative, co-worker) who can’t find it. Please forward this email to them.

Time for some shoutouts to my amazing clients and their success in 2020!

Wow…it blew my mind!

“Wow”

This was my reaction when my client, Davis, told me last week he made it to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list!


Davis started working with me last May to increase his clarity, motivation, and confidence in building his second business out of his passion for teaching and entrepreneurship.

Since then, he has been totally rocking it. 

Removing blocks after blocks in our sessions and stepping even more into his talents for entrepreneurship.

He just published his first book “How To Start a Business (In 50 Pages)” that I received in my mailbox today.

Watch out!  He is up to big things in the world. 

You can too!

“From despair and frustration to total clarity about my true calling”

“From despair and frustration to total clarity about my true calling”

“It’s still surreal how I went from despair and frustration to total clarity about my true calling.”

This is what my client, T.G., just wrote as she graduated from my “Land the Career You Love” 1:1 coaching program.

Read her full testimonial below—the 33rd five-star review on Yelp for Brilliant Seeds. 
 

****************


“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.”

(Client story + Video) 3 reasons why now is a great time to reevaluate your career and your life

She is doing it, so can you. 

I just had a session with one of my clients who is British and currently lives in California. She is moving back to the UK in a few weeks to fulfill her vision of being closer to family and friends.

She spends the last few months of sheltering in place clarifying her vision for her dream career and lifestyle with my help, and now she is clear and making it a reality!

She is moving back to the UK and will be taking steps there to explore career and job opportunities in alignment with the plan I helped her flesh out.

This time of sheltering in place is a great opportunity to look at reevaluating the vision for your ideal career and lifestyle.

Are you taking advantage of it?

Watch the video below to find out why and how you can do it. 

To your brilliance,

Isabelle

(Client Success Story) At 27, she found her North Star

(Client Success Story) At 27, she found her North Star

OMG. I am so pumped up!

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)

She started working with me in May after attending my workshop at General Assembly in San Francisco. 

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.

Isabelle

P.S. Your North Star is waiting for you. Will you go and find it?
