I bought a one-way ticket to France…

I bought a one-way ticket to France…

I bought a one-way ticket to France…

For the first time.

and I’m surprisingly excited about it. (the one-way ticket) 

NOT because I want to stay indefinitely in France or move back there.

I don’t.

California is my home. At least for now. Even if France is very dear to my heart; It will always be.

I bought a one-way ticket because of some unknowns related to the US Covid travel ban.
Whether I’ll be able to come back directly to the US or if I’ll have to spend 14 days in a country outside of the Schengen area.

(No matter what happens, I’ll be working and meeting my clients remotely, which is my joy.)

I’m realizing I LOVE one-way tickets!!! It feels SO good.

🔥 It means… FREEDOM. 🔥

Going with the flow
Going with my desires
Deciding when I want to come back.
Letting things unfold and deciding from the unfoldment.


I LOVE living my life this way.

Open-ended
Going with the flow
With space for the unfoldment of what wants to emerge


This is where the magic happens.

✅ In the unknown
In the open space
Where everything is possible.

❌ Not in the constraints
or the confinement
or the preset and preplanned

It feels safer BUT it limits possibilities and creativity.

Let me ask you: 

  • Where do you limit creativity and possibility out of fear of the unknown or clinging to safety?
    • In your career? in your life? 
  • Where do you cling so tightly to safety that you have been stuck in the same place for years or even decades? 
  •  Where can you let loose to make space for the new?
  • Where do you plan things so tightly or you want things to unfold a certain way that you don’t allow anything new to enter your life?
  • Where do you sacrifice JOY and your heart desires for SAFETY?

This is why so many people are unhappy and never go for their dreams and desires.

Is that YOU?

Ask yourself honestly.

Change starts with self-honesty. Not denial

It takes courage but this is the path to the career and lifestyle of your dreams.

This is the path I’ve taken over and over again. This is the path my clients take to reach their dream careers. 

I want that for you too.

This has been on my mind for a while…

This has been on my mind for a while…

It is time to make it a reality.

2021 is the year… 

I live my dream of traveling and working remotely from all kinds of gorgeous places around the US 🇺🇸 and around the world. 🌎

It started two weeks ago.

How I get inspired and tap into my inner guidance (pics inside)

How I get inspired and tap into my inner guidance (pics inside)

As a coach and business owner, I’ve learned that this is key that I take rejuvenating breaks during the year so that I can be of best service to you, my clients, and community. 

This is NOT optional.

This is an integral part of living my purpose in the world and giving the best that I can give. 

I am recently back from a rejuvenating camping trip to the Trinity Alps in Northern California. 

This is one of my favorite combos to get inspired and tap into my inner guidance.

💦 Immerse my body in water
🌲 Spend time in nature
✏️ Contemplate, journal, write and draw



I came back feeling refreshed and clear about what I want to create in my life and business for the rest of 2020

I connected to the BIGGER VISION I’m here to create for the next five years. 

How do YOU get inspired and tap into your own guidance?

Whatever your life and work situation, this is KEY to the success and fulfillment of your goals. 

THIS IS NOT OPTIONAL.

I remind this to my clients all the time.

A lot of them experience a higher level of clarity and success as a result of doing things they enjoy and that rejuvenate them.

I’d love to hear what are your ways and practices. 

Comment below and let me know. Bonus points if you share pics! 🙂

In service,

Isabelle

I’ve the best boss ever! (Birthday pics inside)

I’ve the best boss ever! (Birthday pics inside)

I have the best boss ever! 😜

For my Birthday today, she rescheduled my clients’ sessions so that I could bask in the glory of my special day and treat myself. 

which means: 

  • Sleep in
  • Stay in my pj’s for how long as I want
  • Receive and bask in all the love from family and friends (video calls, texts, messages, Facebook messages)
  • Order a delicious French meal for lunch, delivered to my doorstep


This is an intense time of expansion in my business and in my life, and I’m grateful I got to rest and treat myself today. 

So that I can be rejuvenated to be of best service to my clients and to keep evolving and growing. 

I cannot serve well if my tank is empty. You cannot either. 

We serve and give the best when our tank is full. 

I love my boss and she loves me. 

Here she is! 😉 

Why am I sharing that with you?

So that you get reminded that treating yourself, self-care, and taking the time to receive are key elements of a fulfilled, happy, and successful career and life

especially in this ultra-productive and busy environment we live in.

Take the time to stop and take care of yourself. You deserve it. 

What are you going to do to treat yourself, or what are you already doing?

Let me know. I’d love to hear. Comment below.

With love,

Isabelle

This morning, I did this. (NEW practice to start 2020 clear & empowered)

This morning, I did this. (NEW practice to start 2020 clear & empowered)

This morning, I did this.

I highly recommend it.

It is bringing me inner peace as I start 2020, a new year and a new decade of my life.

I recommend this practice if you want to start 2020 with more peace of mind, empowerment, and acceptance of where you are in your life.

It may sound confronting or heavy at first, but it is SO worth it. It really works!

Try it and let me know what you find out.

It is like when you look at your finances. It may be uncomfortable at first, and then it brings you peace of mind to know where you are at.

Here is what I did.

It took me about 2-3 hours of reflection/journaling.

I looked back at the 3 past decades of my life.
– 2010-2019
– 2000-2009
– 1990-1999

For each decade, on one piece of paper, I listed the main themes in terms of achievements and personal/professional transformation and lessons learned (work, life, personal development, travels, and any themes that are personal and meaningful to me and to my own journey. Eg. Living my life purpose, becoming bilingual, discovering my passions, doing what I love).

Then, I noticed the overarching theme for each decade and the evolution from one decade to the next.

As a result of it:

  • I feel great as I got in touch in touch with how much I and my life have positively transformed and evolved in 3 decades, despite challenges along the way.
  • I notice the evolution decade after decade, and how what I did in each decade prepared me for the next. I can see that there is a natural progression and unfoldment that I could not see at the time. Seeds planted in one decade beautifully blossomed into the next.
  • I feel so much clarity about the past three decades of my life and what the themes have been.
  • This clarity empowers me as I enter a new year and decade of my life.
  • I feel at peace and more accepting of where I am in my life, trusting that things are unfolding for my best and highest good.
  • I know that I don’t have to do it all alone: I can see a bigger plan and higher power at play in the unfoldment of my life purpose that is with me on this journey. I can surrender to it, instead of pushing, efforting, and complaining about things not going MY way.

I want that for you too.

It is SO worth it.

TRY IT.
