Hi, I’m Isabelle!
I am an auditor turned into F&B entrepreneur, writer, author, content creator and community builder.
From the business school, multinational corporate, coffee business, to the creative industry, I documented my journey of fear, tears, soul-searching, hitting the rock bottom, getting back up, quitting, and trying in a tiny book called ‘The Art of Owning Your Story’.
When I started to share my story, I realised that my voice is the most powerful tool I have.
I say, 'life is supposed to be hard', and here's why.
I suffered from a minor depression when I was running a business and having everything that made a ‘good life’.
When I let go of everything and experienced a free-fall to the rock bottom, I learned that what I need to feel joy and fulfilled is all in me. Hitting the rock bottom gave me the freedom to reinvent my life on a blank canvas.
The process of finding ways to a fulfilling life wasn’t sunshine and rainbow, but life is too short not to live it.
What am I up to in 2020?
In this blog, I write about life lessons, personal development, community building as well as other things that matter, such as family, relationship, and adventures.
Besides providing content writing services, I spent my time building a community platform Own Your Story with the mission to create a safe space for self-expression, exploration and personal growth, cultivating authentic human connection in the process.
In 2020, I will focus on distilling my philosophy of work and designing/testing the storytelling framework that be applicable across different communities and organisations, to empower more people to own their stories and change our world with stories.
Thank you for taking your time, if you would like to get in touch, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
