Being open to whatever comes next
Do you ever wonder where your life is going? Question whether you’re on the right path or making the right decisions? Like, all the time? Not my friend Sarah. Sarah is blessed with the ability to go with the flow, take opportunities as they arise, and have faith that the steps she is taking are leading her in the right direction.
That mindset has led to an interesting career path, from starting out as an intern on the Today Show, to working as a personal assistant, to anchoring the local news, to now working for her local state Senator. Sarah’s latest venture is a business all her own. Over the last few months, she’s launched Soiree!, an event planning, day-of event coordinating, and consulting business in Upstate New York.
I, personally, think that’s a ballsy thing to do and I love it. So, I talked to Sarah about starting a business and going with the flow.
Caitlin: Did you always want to have to have your own business?
Sarah: I don’t necessarily think it’s always been a goal, but that it’s something I’ve always wanted to do deep down. When I first started this my mom reminded me of something I’d forgotten. When I was probably ten years old I was down at my grandmother’s cottage with my cousins and I created a bakery called 5 cousins Bakery. I created a brochure with a menu and went to all the different cottages along the shore line and they would place orders and we’d go back and bake everything and deliver them.
So, I kind of think it was always in the back of my mind to start something up for myself. I think I’ve always wanted to be my own boss.
Caitlin: I think a lot of people have ideas of what they kind of want to do, but it feels really out of reach or you think, like, can I really do that? Is it worth it? What’s your advice?
