Your purpose… (and why I was quiet)

Your purpose… (and why I was quiet)

What is your purpose?

Like my clients, it may be…

  • making a difference in the lives or careers of your employees, students, patients, or clients
  • supporting the environment, diversity & inclusion, health, art, architecture, children’s education, girls and women’s empowerment, real estate, or anything else.


But have you considered that…

  • being an amazing spouse, a good parent, or grandparent that leaves a legacy in your children and grandchildren’s life,
  • or bringing happiness and joy to your circle of friends and family 

could also be part of your purpose?

What if BOTH categories were an integral part of your purpose or “sacred work” as my colleague Beverley Barnes calls it?

Your purpose–what brings meaning to your life–, can take many forms. And some of its forms are all too often ignored. 

For many of my clients, whatever their gender identity is, being a good parent or a good partner, is as important to them as making a difference in the world with their work.

It’s why, when I help them clarify their purpose in my Land the Career You Love coaching program, we look at the holistic picture to ensure we integrate it all. 

Career and purpose coaching need to be holistic to make a true difference in people’s lives and ensure fulfillment at ALL levels, not just at the professional level disconnected from the rest.

It is also the reason why in the past eight months, I have been quieter and not sharing as much. I’ve been putting attention to another important part of my purpose and sacred work while continuing to serve my 1:1 clients. 

As you probably know, a BIG part of my purpose is to help high-achieving leaders discover the work that reignites their passion and makes a difference. 

Well, I recently realized that there is another part of my purpose that is as important. This is being an amazing partner and deepening the relationships with my loved ones. 

I had always known it was important to me, but I had never considered it part of my purpose. So, I would spend a lot of time on this part of my life, but I would dismiss it as outside the scope of my purpose or my “work.” I would feel some kind of guilt that I would spend so much time on it at the expense of what is supposed to be “real work and purpose in the world.”

In the past few months, I realized that being an amazing partner is an integral part of my purpose and calling. It is not outside of it. It is IT. When I spend time and energy on it, I’m actually living my purpose and doing my sacred work in the world.

  • Do you know what are the components of your purpose and your “sacred work’?
  • Do you dismiss anything that does not look like what society tells you should be “work” or “purpose”?
  • Do you hold a holistic view of your purpose?

I’d love to hear your insights. Comment below and let me know.

I’m baaaccckkk!

I’m baaaccckkk!

I’m back writing to you after a few months break… 

I’ll give you more updates soon–including why I’ve been silent–as well as inspirations and tips on your path to finding and living your career calling

In the meantime, I want to share a celebration. 

Yesterday, for the first time, I had the honor of speaking on a French Enneagram panel virtually hosted in France by Cecile-Flora Lefevre. The Enneagram is a powerful transformation system that I use with my clients. On the panel, I shared–in French–my personal journey of transformation using the Enneagram.

I have spoken on countless English-speaking and/or American-based Enneagram panels led by internationally known experts–including Beatrice Chestnut, Uranio Paes, Ben Saltzman to name a few– but it was my first time sharing in French with fellow French and French-speaking Enneagram practitioners.

SO GOOD!

Bridging cultures and languages is part of my mission. It’s why I love supporting clients from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and countries. 

What are you celebrating?

Comment below and let me know. I’d love to cheer you on. 

Big or small, shared celebrations help you increase your well-being and become more magnetic to good in your life. It’s why this is the first thing I have my private clients do in our 1:1 sessions.

This training is the result of some labor of love I’ve been engaged in the past four months to provide even more value to you. The content is brand new and I’ll share things I’ve never shared before

—> If you have been curious about my approach and what gets my clients such powerful results, this is the BEST way to experience it at no cost.

This free masterclass is perfect for you if…

  • You feel trapped, lost, or confused in your career.
  • You want meaningful work that allows you to make a contribution and impact in the world, maybe leave a legacy, but you can’t figure out what that next work or career is.
  • You have so many ideas that you don’t know how to choose the right one.
  • You don’t know whether your current career, business, or industry is the right path for you or not.

* Even if this masterclass is primarily geared towards high-achieving and successful professionals, you will still get value from it even if you don’t identify as such. 


In this masterclass, I’ll share with you…

the secrets to aligning your unique talents with your unique purpose, so you can have a dream career making a positive difference in the world.
If you’ve been searching for this kind of meaning and freedom for a while and are starting to feel stuck or hopeless, I know this promise can seem far-fetched. But after years of helping hundreds of clients successfully land their dream careers, I know there truly is one key element that consistently unlocks this hidden path and I can’t wait to share it with you!

I ended my workday swimming with turtles.

I ended my workday swimming with turtles.

As I went to the beach after work on Monday, I saw sea turtles coming out of the Ocean. At first, two, three, four… and then a total of twenty! It was magical. 



Working on an exciting brand new training during the day (more to be revealed soon!) and swimming with turtles in Maui after my workday is my dream career + lifestyle combined.

Yes! Maui… This is where I am for three weeks.

Travelling and working remotely has been a dream of mine for a long time, and I’m taking steps to make it happen this year. 

What is yours?

If you could have ANY combo of work + lifestyle you want, what would that be?

  • Where would you live?
  • Where would you work? When?
  • What would your ideal schedule look like?
  • How would you spend your time outside of your working hours?
  • What would you work on?


Imagine it ALL. Exactly as you want it. On your terms. Whatever they are.

If you already have it, what is the next thing you are longing for? More balance? More freedom? More time with the people you care about? More time to travel?

Manifesting it starts with visualizing it! 
It’s how I start every single time. Getting really clear about what I truly want, NOT what I should want to “look good” or to “appear successful” according to external standards of success, but what my heart truly desires for my fulfillment.

Doing work that lights you up and makes a difference in the world is also about having the lifestyle, freedom, and balance you want, on your terms! What is the point of doing work you love or being very successful if you are living a life in conflict with your values?

To your next-level dream career and life,

Isabelle 

P.S. If you or someone you know need help clarifying and stepping into your next-level dream career and lifestyle, I’ve space for 2 new private clients at my current pricing. Apply here to explore working together. 

I don’t do “regular” career coaching.

I don’t do “regular” career coaching.

I don’t do quick fixes.
I don’t help you find a career just to bolster your resume. 
I don’t help you find a new career that matches your conditioned notion of “success.”  
I don’t help you find a career based on your current or old conditioning and limiting beliefs.
I don’t help you find your next career based on the market, what jobs or industries are “hot”, what “makes sense”, what you “should do.”
I don’t help you stay in the false belief that something is wrong with you and you must work harder to fix yourself and find work you love.

Why? 
Because all of these don’t work.
It’s by following these scripts that many high-achieving and “successful” professionals stay stuck in careers that don’t work for them for years, even decades.


 I help you unlock and step into your next-level career dream that allows you to live your purpose and make the difference you are here to make on the planet… without sacrificing your lifestyle and balance. 

As a result of working with me…
My clients start their nonprofit.

They are well on the path to their next dream career they will have for the next 25 years.
They find their true calling and North Star, once and for all.
They are crystal clear about the legacy they want to leave behind.
They find the courage and confidence to step into the career of their dreams.
They step into their multiple-career dreams, combining multiple passions into work.
They negotiate their ideal role and schedule in their company and get it. 
They reach career certainty, clarity, and confidence for the first time in their lives.

They create their ultimate dream lifestyle. 
They start living a life truly aligned with their values. 
They discover their authentic self that has been buried under decades of trying to be somebody else.
They heal childhood wounds that years of therapy have not touched or transformed.

When they first come to me…
My clients are scared.
They doubt the process will work for them.
They feel hopeless.
They may be burned out.
They don’t think this is possible for them.

Despite their fears and doubts…
They commit to doing the work.
They take one step after another.
They understand that real change does not come from a quick fix.
They step into the unknown despite their doubts.
They know they need guidance and that doing it alone has not worked.
They are ready to look honestly at themselves to find the answers that have been hidden for long.

This is why working with me privately is an investment, an investment that will serve you for the rest of your career and life.
…so that you stop the cycle of being trapped in the wrong career once and for all.
…so that you start living your purpose and make the contribution you are here to make. 


I have space for 2 new clients in my private coaching before I raise my current price.
