FEMME NOUVEAU (PRONOUNCED FEMM NOO-VO) IS INSPIRED BY THE FRENCH PHRASE FOR NEW WOMAN.

THE FEMME NOUVEAU HAS MASTERED THE ART OF LIVING IN HER WORK, PLAY, AND LOVE.

When you meet someone, how quickly does the phrase, "What do you do?" come up? Living here in LA, that question is pretty much the basis of every new interaction I've had. It really reflects how we as millennials value ourselves based on what we do instead of who we are, which can sometimes seem even harder to answer than how we spend our 9-5. 

In an age where we are defined by our career choices, it can be depressing to feel like you don't love what you do or don't even know what to do. If you hate your job or feel like you're on the wrong career path, then how can you love your life? 

Because we spend most of our time at work, it's easy to feel like this is the most important part of who we are. But our lives as a whole are more than just work. What we do for fun and the people we love are also pieces of who we are. When we balance work, play, and love, we master the art of living.

That is where design thinking comes into play. Design thinking is used by designers and companies (like Apple) to solve problems. The idea is that you come up with a design (or lifestyle) that focuses on the solution and not the problem. A design mindset is not problem-focused, it’s solution focused towards creating a preferred future. Design Thinking uses logic, imagination, intuition, and reasoning, to explore the possibilities of what could be—and to create a desired outcome--a life that is completely designed by you.

So if you find yourself asking questions, or your life needs balance, or you just need help deciding your next move, Femme Nouveau offers a unique lifestyle consulting that will help you design the life you've imagined. Click "Let's Talk" to get started.
