Everyday Women, Unsung Heroes: This Is My Story -- What Is Yours?

It’s March and that means it’s Women’s History Month.

CEO Twice Over

I am the founder and CEO and sole owner of two companies: Studio Sarah Records LLC and Studio Sarah Music Publishing LLC.  I believe I had “start record label and music publishing company” on my list of 1-3 year goals when I was 19 years old.  This goal continued to appear on my lists of 1-3 year goals until I started the companies at the age of 26. ...more
