This is called "crush" encounters. With Sarah, it was immediately a beautiful friendly relationship that was established and I am very happy today to present you her portrait. Audrey, founder Rive Claire®.

Your journey in a few words:
I have a very "academic" background. After a literary preparation (Hypokhâgne and Khâgne), I joined Sciences Po. At the beginning, my dream was to work in a big fashion house. I have always been passionate about fashion and crafts. As a teenager, I used to spend my pocket money on special "fashion show" specials from Vogue or l'Officiel de la Mode, I used to get up in the middle of the night to watch reruns of Mode 6. I would have loved to become a stylist! But since I didn't really have any talent for drawing and rather good grades at school, I chose a very generalist path. I finally opted for journalism and joined lPJ in Paris to pursue my fashion dream through writing. I worked in the women's magazine press for ten years (l'Officiel de la mode, ELLE, Biba...).
When was the last time you changed lanes?
Everything was going pretty well in my life: I had a good education, a job I liked, friends, a lover... I had ticked all the boxes but I felt that I was missing something to be fully fulfilled. The problem was that I didn't know what.
I had everything I needed to be happy and yet I was still looking for my place. At the same time, since the age of 19, I had developed a real passion for what is called "personal development". I read tons of books, attended workshops, courses and lectures by fascinating authors. And then, at the age of 30, when my second child was born, it was a no-brainer. I realized that everything I had learned for my own pleasure, all this reconnection work that I had loved so much, it was my turn to pass it on.
Concretely, how did things get set up?
I first created www.inspireoseaime.fr to inspire women to live their lives to the fullest.
Then some readers of my site asked me to accompany them to get to know each other better and to reconnect with what vibrates in them. I then imagined a tailor-made accompaniment path via "one to one" sessions. In a few months, everything was set up.
What's your news?
Twice a week, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9am, on my Instagram @inspireoseaime account, I offer free live meditations. It talks about self-confidence, energy, empowerment... And I have just launched a 3 month online program Inspire Dare Love to allow women today to dare to affirm their values, their talents and offer them to the world. Following your desires, becoming a full player in your life and inspiring other women to do the same, it changes everything!
What are your days like?
They're all different. I write for my blog, speak to business leaders, teach meditation, create online programs, and I am currently finishing my first novel... I love what I do. I don't feel like I'm working! I have an immense pleasure to accompany these incredible women to reconnect with them. I feel fully useful and aligned.
A mantra ?
Love and service. Doing what we love and being able to contribute to the world.
What about fashion?
She's never far away... I love this universe and its incredible know-how too much for that. In fact, I enjoy the fact that my clients often come from this milieu.
