Sarah is a performance and clarity coach. Her approach is rooted in the ancient wisdom of Stoicism.
I recently had the opportunity to hang out with Sarah on her podcast, Live Without Borders. We talked about the most important life skills to prepare you for the future of work.
Lot of great lessons in our conversation including:
- How she found a way to live long-term in Europe by becoming an Italian citizen.
- How she landed a gig working for Apple through her LinkedIn profile.
- Unable to find work living in the UK, forced her to create her own work.
- How she discovered clarity for herself to arrive at the work she does today.
- Finding clarity by being present, so you can get clear on your priorities.

“Freedom is about more than getting on a plane, it’s about becoming the most heroic version of yourself.”
“We should be prioritizing our health and the people we care about and enjoying these fleeting moments that we have here on this earth.”
“Innovating companies like people who are doing innovative things.”
“I want to help women literally find their voice through podcasting.”
“I did have clarity because I had no choice.”
“You will never have this day again. Make every moment matter.”
Want to start finding more clarity? Sarah suggested these steps to get started:
1) Since we all have a tendency to overcomplicate things, ask yourself, “how can I make this easy?”
2) Think about what you’re great at, what are people coming to you for help with, and what’s something that’s easy for you that other people are struggling with?
3) Sometimes, to avoid getting stuck in planning, you just need to throw yourself into the fire and do something like move to another country.
