Sarah is a genuine person and brings her natural charm, sweetness, intelligence and enthusiasm into everything she does. She has helped me in so many different ways: she is a wonderful and sincere cheerleader, and yet at the same time she is unflinching in her honesty and feedback.
She knows her shit and she’s not afraid to share what she knows.
I feel safe with her and free to explore my blocks, resistances, deepest fears and greatest dreams. I know I won’t be judged, and I always value her opinion and feedback.
Sarah offers a lovely balance between offering nurturing, kind-hearted support which artists need, and at the same time, leading you into structure and holds you accountable so that you can actually be pushed into the next level you didn’t even know you had inside you.
Sarah believes in dreams, and that is an important thing in a coach and a strategist. We all need someone to hold our hand while we take gigantic leaps into our creativity, careers and lives.
Sarah is no-nonsense; she has been invaluable in helping me focus on what really matters to me, while at the same time helping me, thankfully, to let go of the baggage that has kept me down in the same patterns year after year.
It is easy for me to get overwhelmed with all that I want to create and do in this lifetime, and Sarah consistently and gently guides me back into my own truth.
I love Sarah! She is such a rare combination of intelligent, charming, and bad-ass. I feel her authenticity which always inspires me to bring mine.
Sarah’s enthusiasm for connection, intuition, creativity, and systems is infectious. I love having a coach that I feel a genuine connection to. She is much more than a coach, she is a full human being, and brings her wholeness to everything she does.
I love that Sarah reveals her personal experience, while also bringing her professional expertise. I love getting to know Sarah’s personality while she encourages me to express mine. Working with Sarah is so much more than one could expect from a coach.
I can tell Sarah genuinely loves the work she does. She truly cares about the people she coaches, and you can feel that in her ability to accurately understand, reflect and encourage me from the place I am, rather than the place she wants me to be.
As a coach, Sarah strikes the perfect balance between intuitive and structured—leaning on her varied background, natural gifts and ability to connect with her clients.
Sarah has a certain magic about her–I can’t quite tell how she does what she does, but by the time we are done with our session, I feel transformed, blessed and ready to return to making my dreams happen.

Linda Brogan, an award winning UK playwright, secures nearly $20,000 USD within a month!
“…And the most interesting story in Twelve Years of Slavery is actually the white slave owner who loves the black girl. We’re never given an emotional journey. Even the word given, why am I saying given? I’m not being given anything, I’m going to take it.” – Linda Brogan on Excavating The Reno

I have this amazing idea. I’m gonna dig up my teenage cellar club covered in grass for the last thirty years. Get the go ahead from Manchester City Council. Willing archaeologists. Manchester Museum to exhibit its artifacts. Just need £150,000. Arts Council England want a plan before they’ll part with a penny.
You’ve heard of artist’s disorganized minds. I don’t know where to start. I read Sarah’s blog. Followed it to the letter. A month later I’ve planned the next 6 months. Raised £15,000. Am through to the second phase of the other £135,000.

Brandon H, corporate IT guy, gets two promotions and a raise of 36% in under a year!
I’m Going To E3 This Year, Hell Yeah!
For peeps who aren’t in the know, E3 opened their doors to 15,000 people of the public this year, the first experience of its kind in YEARS!
The Electronic Entertainment Expo, commonly referred to as E3, is an annual trade fair for the video game industry presented by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA). It is used by many video game publishers and accessory manufacturers to introduce and advertise upcoming games and game-related merchandise.
Why is this such a big deal?
- This is such a big deal to me because I have been talking about going to something like this with my brother for quite some time now. However, they have never opened it to the public before and if they would have I probably wouldn’t have been able to go. I was working two jobs and didn’t have a whole lot of free time for “vacations”. I feel that this trip is a huge accomplishment that shows where I was and where I am now!
How did you feel the moment you hit the buy button and confirmed your tickets?
- I felt a surge of excitement. I felt like this could be the first of many times I will be purchasing items like this. I felt empowered!!
Would you say you’re passionate about gaming, and if so, why?
- Gaming is definitely something that I enjoy doing. It allows me to be in my creative space and allows me to relax. I also get to play with people I would never have been able to interact with otherwise.
What are you most looking forward to?
- Oh, that is tough. I would have to say being able to see and touch the things I normally would have to watch live. I will get to actually attend in person and be part of the hype right along with the rest of people in attendance. I’ll admit, it would be really cool to some see famous bloggers and YouTubers too.
How has your experience with Sarah helped you get to where you are today?
- Sarah was able to help me achieve confidence and empowered me to take charge of myself and head in the direction that I wanted to take in life. I have gone through three promotions now increasing my income by some 36%. I no longer have a second job. I feel like I have more freedom in my day to day life and that’s an awesome feeling!
I had graduated college and received a Bachelor’s and an Associate’s Degree and was in the working two jobs rut. Working 70+ hours a week was starting to get to me as I had been doing this for a good two years after college.
I needed to either strike it rich or work my way into making more money at one of my two jobs. By increasing my income I could eliminate one of the jobs and make time for other things besides work.
Then, in comes Sarah.
Talk about something coming out of left field. She just popped into my life and had an air about her…
“This air, it’s the kind you pick up on when you meet someone that makes a difference, bestows confidence, and ultimately makes you feel like you can do anything.”
That air is a huge part of why I chose Sarah as a mentor to help release me from the chains of having to work two jobs. Now, I’m pursuing my dreams.
Sarah not only helped me gain more confidence in what I was doing but changed the way I looked at things. Now, I see present issues, how I can learn from them, and how to utilize them for my benefit.
Her help was unique in a way I haven’t experienced before. Instead of providing what she thought I was good at and what she thought would help, I was assisted in figuring all of this out on my own. I was able to see what I was good at and what I could improve on from my ah-ha moments, not someone else’s.
This experience opened my eyes and was what I liked best about her approach.
She didn’t try to spin anything her way and make me feel confident from her point of view; she helped me feel confidence from within myself with my thoughts which helped me figure myself out.
“Realizing how you can improve, when the thoughts come from your head, is such a fantastic feeling that you feel there isn’t anything you can’t do.”
Not too far into the future, my problems were resolved.
Everything I learned from Sarah allowed me to take advantage of opportunities which lead to a promotion and increased my pay to 18% more than what I was making previously. I was able to leave my other job and work a maximum of 40 hours a week. I have so much time for other activities and have been enjoying it ever since.
Recently, I got another promotion which came with additional 18% raise which is a total increase of 36% in my short time working with Sarah.
That’s a massive leap in pay!
The experience I’ve had with Sarah has been freaking fantastic. She lifted me off the ground and helped mentor me to get to where I am at today. And if you think my experience stops there, well it doesn’t. I have been continuously learning things to help me prepare for my next promotion.
My continued involvement with Sarah is helping me achieve my goals which will get me to my dream. Now, I know I can do it!
“I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone. She not only gets you motivated to fix whatever seems to be plaguing you but also gets you motivated about yourself.”
When you are motivated by what you have accomplished, who you are, and what you want to do nothing can stand in your way.
Anyone who wishes to get up out of the rut they are in should start working with Sarah.
She helps you step outside of your comfort zone so you can live a totally rad life!

Troy L, long time IT guy, took back control of his life!
“Troy has come SO far since we first met. He’s actively working on improving his life bit by bit and creating a new lifestyle that will afford him the opportunity to go after what he truly wants.
And today, he has a really good idea of what that is and he sees a path forward!
That’s a huge feat when you’re in a spot where there doesn’t seem to be a way to get from where you are to where you want to be. Troy has taken it all on, head to head!”
I was 13 years into a fairly successful career in IT, but work had become so stale. I wasn’t learning anything new. I was just going through the motions. I wasn’t motivated to learn or try anything new. I tried to tell myself I wanted to learn something, ANYTHING new but just couldn’t find any drive.
I met Sarah through work, and we started having some conversations about work, life, and goals. I told her how I felt stuck and wasn’t sure how to get going again.
Sarah helped point me in the right direction. She helped me find simple resources that encouraged me to keep going. She followed up with me every day. She pushed me, encouraged me, and continued to provide support and guidance along the way.
Sarah treated me like a friend. She learned what made me tick and how to push the right buttons to keep me moving ahead. To this day, she is still checking in on me. She still motivates me to keep going, keep learning.
Sarah is very personable in her approach. She cares about your success. She WILL NOT give up on you.
I’m still learning. Still growing. I’m looking into expanding my skills and freelancing so I can become self-supportive. All of this is possible because of Sarah’s guidance and support.
If you want to take back control of your life, I would recommend getting in touch with Sarah. She will motivate the crap out of you, give you a kick in the ass and get you moving.
