  • Grit, Grace, & Goals

    How to strike the right balance to set and achieve goals with ease.


    Do you set big goals but never achieve them? Why is that?

    To achieve big goals, we need grit. Relentless pursuit. When we face a setback, we need to find a way to continue. When we error or take a step back, we need to forgive ourselves. We need to give ourselves grace.

  • It's Allowed to Be Easy

    Of course, we can do hard things. But why do we make it harder than it needs to be?


    Climbing the corporate ladder is hard. Parenting is hard. Running your own business is hard. Eating healthy is hard. Sometimes, just taking a shower is hard. But what if hard is just a mindset? What if we remove the word hard and embrace easy as a mindset? What if it's allowed to be easy?

Sarah was great to work with when she emceed our community event. It was easy to plan the details with her before the event, she was always accessible and was great to brainstorm ideas with. On event day she arrived well before was required and hit it out of the park, ensuring the event ran smoothly, on time and was able to keep everyone engaged. Highly recommend her services and would definitely use her again.

School Assembly Testimonial

Kelly, Teacher

Sarah came to my school and gave a motivational speech on Leadership. Somehow in a gym with a couple hundred grade 4-8 students she was able to make a personal connection to each and everyone. Each student left the assembly feeling empowered with a least one way they could be a leader in their own life. Even parents who attended commented on what a great speaker Sarah was and how sharing her personal experiences with everyone was both touching and uplifting. I hope Sarah can have a chance to come back soon!
