My name is Clarisse Bilongo Libene, business coach and strategist, speaker, writer and holistic practionner since 2010.

I graduated from SKEMA Business School in 2005 and started my career in the media industry as a sales and marketing strategist at Yahoo!

I have discovered the power of the internet as a media and never left it since then.

In 2008, I launched my first blog, Bellebene dedicated to the beauty of Natural Hair. I quickly upgraded it into an online shop, events and coaching. In that journey that stopped in 2015, I have helped thousands of people discover their natural beauty in my Parisian boutique, online shop, and the Natural Hair Academy, the first European event dedicated to the beauty of women of color that I have co-founded.

In 2015, I started my practice as a consultant and business coach, helping women in Europe and Africa launch and grow their businesses, initiating the Afropreneuses movement.

As a strategist and coach, I help my clients in the process of getting free from what blocks them from getting the business and life they want.

My practice, deeply rooted in my own entrepreneurial journey and African heritage is centered on active listening, exchange, strategy, kindness and energetic work. I offer a sacred space giving you the opportunity to freely express everything you feel and your concerns, visualize the business and life you want and more importantly co-create it.

I also ask you a lot of questions to help you go further. I talk a lot with you throughout our interview. I often suggest practical exercises to do between each session.

Happy mother of two and divorced, I decided to settle in Anjou, France, where I now offer my services globally.
