After 8 weeks of travel in France and Mexico, combining vacation and remote work, I’m back in my California office. Lots of new things are cooking in my work and life. I’ll share more soon.
In the meantime, I want to give a shout-out to my awesome clients, past and present.
Many of them are innovators who are called to forge new paths in the areas they care about, such as:
environment and climate change diversity and inclusion homelessness and hunger community services entrepreneurship and business design and art children and young adults education girls and women education real estate
and many more.
It’s an honor to help them uncover the impactful work they are here to do and make it a reality.
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 realize their long-time dream of moving to another country and finding their dream career there. 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 uncover their own unique compass to make career decisions for the rest of their lives. They publish their first book. They make it to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list. Their work gets showcased in the press. They start their dream business. They unlock the artist within, create their own studio, and start selling their art. They make plans to retire early to implement their big visions. They leave toxic working environments they have been stuck in for decades. They land some amazing work opportunities because of how aligned they are with their unique talents and purpose. 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.

My clients’ visions are coming true and Covid did not stop them!
Lately, I’ve received many updates and celebrations from clients who are making their dreams come true. I’m getting so many of them that I can’t hardly keep up or share them all…
There are clients who have worked with me in 2020 during the pandemic.
The visions I helped them clarify during our coaching work are happening!
Here are a few of them: ✅ A director of marketing and communications with 20 years of experience and a passion for fashion just started an online fashion store—I will share it with you as soon as she gives me the green light—, has taken a few small business clients who need assistance with marketing and presentation coaching, and is experimenting working remotely with her husband, which is part of their dream lifestyle.
✅ A successful software consultant with 20 years of experience, initially depressed and feeling like a failure, was able to see his work in a totally new way. As a result, he grew quickly in his executive leadership role while embarking on a new career as a coach and trainer.
✅ A project manager with 12+ years of experience applied for the health coaching certification program she wanted and just made an offer on a house in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania where she moved with her husband to be closer to her family.
✅ An actuary turned data scientist living in San Francisco with her husband achieved her long-time desire to move back to England to be with family and friends and is getting closer to buying a house in London.
✅ A public relations and communications specialist, initially stuck, stressed, and demoralized in her work, became so clear about her strengths, true passions, and vision for her career through the coaching process that she was able to seize an opportunity for a new fulfilling career that came right in front of her. This work will allow her to fulfill her purpose of stewardship and keeping the legacy of the past for future generations.
All of these are visions we clarify together during the coaching process.
All of these clients started working with me 8 to 12 months ago in the midst of the pandemic.
Covid did not stop them!
If they did it, so can you.
Want to be next on the list? Or maybe someone you know (spouse, relative, friend, coworker) who is stuck in their careers.

I look forward to being of service to you or someone you know,
P.S. This is what Ryan says about his experience working with me.
“After 20 years in the tech industry and 2 major depressions, I was finally ready to take seriously the fact that I didn’t love my work like supposedly people did. I had been successful in consulting, building a new offering from the ground up, creating a new organization around it and selling over $150M of new clients in ~3 years and yet I was depressed and felt like I was a complete failure.
Isabelle’s process of identifying the “personal blueprint” (focussed on the “authentic self”), using tools very different from the traditional Myers-Briggs personality typing, brought tremendous insight into aspects of my personality that were huge assets and strengths that I had previous taken for granted or barely noticed and which had really powered much my success. It also helped me to become comfortable with what didn’t come naturally to me in a way no other personal development work I’d ever done (StrengthsFinders, MBTI, etc) had been able to do. For the first time, I was able to take seriously the often extremely powerful feedback I had gotten from others and fully accept that the aspects of myself – loving working to serve other people, coaching, mentoring and charting ambitious visions for teams around me – that I had previously overlooked, undervalued or simply denied (thanks to long help beliefs from childhood about what I was and wasn’t) were very real and in fact powerful. This sent me on a journey of self-development that ended in not abandoning my career at all, but being able to see it in a completely new way. That has allowed me to access resources I din’t know I had and grow immensely and quickly in my executive leadership role while at the same time also embarking on a new career simultaneously.”
In the midst of the stressful times we are experiencing in the US and worldwide, I want to continue bringing light and inspiration to you, while also acknowledging all the emotions and challenges you may be experiencing.
In these times, I encourage you to feel and welcome all your emotions, get supported in community, be gentle with yourself while continuing to celebrate life.
It’s why I want to share with you the success of some of my fabulous clients in 2020.
By courageously stepping into their career callings, they are making the world a better place for all of us.
