Career and Business Coach for Women of Color and Allies

What if you had a business or career aligned to the life YOU want?

Spoiler alert: You don’t have to do what other people do just because it’s what works for them. If you want to reach your definition of success, we do that here.

At Elaine Lou Coaching, we guide women of color, and allies, who’ve established themselves in leadership and executive roles to create a holistic life so they can lead without sacrificing their well-being. 

We’re creating a movement empowering you to embody your values while leading teams, sustaining culture, doing less, and living more. While working together, we’ll do the deep inner work and design systems that support and sustain growth while prioritizing a life led by fulfillment and self-trust.

And all you have to do is just be you. I’ll be here as your guide, holding you accountable to your long-term vision.

PS. Why can you trust me and my team? Apple News featured me as one of the top 5 business coaches, LA Weekly awarded me as the #1 thought leader, and LinkedIn recognized me as a Top Communication Voice.

There are 2 ways to work with me and my team.

Unlike other coaching programs where you don’t get coaching with the head coach, no matter how you work with me, you get guaranteed 1-on-1 time. In addition to either a monthly or bi-weekly 60-minute 1:1 call, there are also two 90-minute office hours with me every month, an in-person retreat, and monthly office hours with my other coaches (Monica Schrock – a Marketing Strategist, Gabrielle Lacasse – a Systems and Project Management Strategist, and Iryne Carrasquillo – an Intuitive Guide).

Our goal is to keep our services accessible, as well as pay our team their fair wages. For this reason, we offer payment plans to adapt and adjust to your needs.

Through 1:1 and hybrid group coaching programs, we can support you to lead with conscious conversations, create sustainable systems, and build teams that carry your legacy while ensuring everyone has a sustainable life.

My coaching program is selective, with no more than 24 active clients at any one time. This ensures client results.

A mastermind group for business and career leaders to define and create their definition of success in their career AND life in 6-12 months.

The Business & Career Mastermind is for leaders like you who are done doing the most and want to create their own definition of “enough” so they can be present with themselves and loved ones.

No matter where you are in your leadership journey, you will learn sustainable strategies to:

✓ Get your time back while making the right amount of money to live the life you get to live, whether that’s binge-watching on Netflix or going on vacation. You get to work with us to audit your systems with our Operations Coach, Gabby, and better understand your numbers to create aligned decisions. Hello, P&L report!

✓ Communicate effectively to attract ideal clients and work with your team. You get marketing and messaging audits with our Marketing and Messaging Strategist, Monica. And, you learn better communication and assertiveness skills with me when it comes to communicating with your team, who might have different personalities.

✓ Create an aligned flow and structure for your life so you aren’t overwhelmed or burned out and can actually do the hobbies you love doing, whether it’s hiking, reading, or lying down 😉

Together we work on your business or career to find what has worked and what can change to create your aligned life.

You receive an in-person group retreat, monthly 1:1 sessions, and 2 group office hours per month with me, plus monthly office hours with my other coaches (Monica Schrock – a Marketing Strategist, Gabrielle Lacasse – a Systems and Project Management Strategist, and Iryne Carrasquillo – an Intuitive Guide). A marketing OR systems audit. You’ll also get 24/5 Voxer access for further support.

This is a 5-digit investment with extended payment plans if needed to meet accessibility. Click on the link to apply below.

1:1 Mentorship

I work with a limited number of clients 1:1, where you receive 24/5 access to me via emails, Voxer, and two 1:1 coaching sessions per month. You’ll also get everything in the mastermind mentioned above. It’s a 4-digit investment with payment plans to meet accessibility. There’s also an opportunity to work with me through a VIP day in-person as well.

Meet Elaine

Hey Legacy Maker! I’m Elaine Lou Cartas. I help heart-led, high performers create a legacy defined by their own terms.

You’ve already established yourself in a leadership or executive role, whether that’s in your own small business or a successful career. You know what you want and have a proven method of success. Now you’re looking for support to navigate the challenges that come from success. My team and I are here to create the space for you to hold conscious conversations with your team, implement holistic leadership, and prioritize a life led by fulfillment and self-trust.

Now you’re looking for support to navigate the challenges that come from success. My team and I are here to create the space for you to hold conscious conversations with your team, implement holistic leadership, and prioritize a life led by fulfillment and self-trust.

After starting your business, you can grow your business to reflect your values and not a carbon copy of the latest trends.

We work with consultants, service-based business owners, architects, dog trainers, human resources, nonprofit consultants, jewelry designers, marketing consultants, c-suite executives, and many more to design a business and life that grows with them.

Some of our clients are coaches who already started a career coach business. Perhaps you are an executive coach or life coach. Regardless of whether you have a coaching certification, we help you become a coach charging your worth.

We work with established leaders who already have a product or service that they believe in but need support in managing the messiness of building a business: dealing with growing teams, outdated systems, and navigating difficult conversations.

  • Maybe you’re in an identity crisis and want the support and accountability to honor yourself and your legacy fully.
  • Maybe you have a habit of going into auto-pilot mode and “just doing” because it’s what’s worked so far.
  • Maybe you’re navigating huge growing pains and need support guiding a team through the transition.

Let’s change that together.

My Why

I do this for my family.

I’m a proud first generation daughter of immigrants. My family immigrated from the Philippines. I’m creating my dream businesses because I want to honor the generations who came before me who sacrificed so much so I can have a life of choice.

The picture from left to right: This is a pic of my dad, his mom (my Nana/grandma), and me. My Nana is holding a pic of her dad (my great Grandpa).

My business is dedicated to generations before me who gave me this privilege, this life of choice — to serve WOC and allies in their businesses and careers.

How can you create a life and business aligned to you?

Through our Color Your Dreams® transformation, we uncover the legacy you are meant to create.

We don’t look at what other successful people have done, we look at your values and how they best support your community.

In fact, we create businesses that are less dependent on or even independent of social media and are focused on creating relationships. My clients have 50%+ of their revenue coming from referrals and renewals instead of doom-scrolling and comparing themselves to people on a different path and with different lived experiences.

By understanding yourself from the inside out, we can scale and sustain the business and life you deserve.

The Color Your Dreams® Approach

This is the approach that my clients will follow in no particular order depending on your current situation, lived experiences, and what makes the most sense for you.

This process is adaptable to meet where you are, and there’s no pressure to do it at any timeline that doesn’t honor you.

Our intention for this Color Your Dreams process is that you stay true to your personal legacy, while my team and I hold you accountable to your vision.
