hello, darling!
i'm sarah

Bachelor’s degree in hand, I stepped into the big, wild world of adulting in 2011 and promptly found myself wondering,

I KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO SPEND YOUR DAYS DOING THINGS THAT FEEL LIKE THEY DON'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE, INSTEAD OF THE THINGS THAT MAKE YOU COME ALIVE.

With a borderline obsessive love of all things color coded and organizational, I spend my days helping creative entrepreneurs just like you streamline your business and maximize efficiency so you can spend time on the things that matter most to you in this one wild and precious life.

"IS THIS ALL THERE IS?"

There had to be more than 5am wake up calls, gray cubicle walls, and absolutely no natural light.

six years, four industries, and five jobs later, i found the creative "more" i'd been looking for.

these are a few of my favorite things

Neither of us remembers exactly how we met, but after four years of friendship, and two months of dating, he asked me to be his forever. Life with him is an absolute dream come true and I can't imagine it without him.

Ever since I was a little kid, I've been in love with stories. I've been a book nerd for as long as I can remember, to the point that I even started a YouTube channel specifically dedicated to books. I read at least 52 (one a week!) every year.

The ampersand — & — is my favorite punctuation mark. (Yes, I have a favorite punctuation mark.) I collect them in all sorts of styles, sizes and colors. You'll find one in every room in my house, plus one tattooed on my wrist.

I've never been a coffee drinker. My dad gave it to me black at age 6 and I've despised it ever since. But hot tea? Yes, please. Give it to me all day, every day. Especially if it's mint or Good Earth's Sweet & Spicy blend.

The first musical I remember seeing was Grease at the at of 6 (not exactly age appropriate, but it happens). I fell in love with musical theatre and never looked back. I minored in theatre in college and visit NYC to see shows at least once a year.

When I was 10-years-old, my mom handed me a composition notebook with the word "journal" written on the front. It was an assignment for school, but I fell in love. Twenty-one years and 32 journals later, it's safe to say I'm a fan.

In truth, I think there are few things that can make a woman feel more confident than the perfect red lipstick. I wear it (with all black) at least once a week (usually more). My favorite shade is Fringe from Kosas Cosmetics.

I spent most of the first five years of my life living on islands, so is it any wonder I love salt breezes and sandy toes? The mountains are lovely, of course, but nothing beats the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore.

Even though I love systems and automation, I'm an analog girl at heart. Snail mail is one of my favorite things in the world and I love few things more than sending or receiving a little note in my real mailbox, just because.
