As our economy continues to change rapidly, I believe how we define entrepreneurs is expanding. Sarah Weaver wants to inspire you to invest in real estate to fund your passion!
She technically works for someone else, but she is such a great example of an intrapreneur or a careerpreneur. She might not own her own business, but sure sure managers her life like she’s an entrepreneur!

How Sarah Works and Thinks
- Wake up time: Currently 5:00 am, but it depends on where she is in the world.
- Core work activities + habits: 1) Write and create. 2) Engage with her community. 3) Stop what she’s doing and just think for at least 30 – 45 minutes.
- Ideal work environment: She loves having a view, but is otherwise very adaptable.
- Resource recommendations: For women, the Digital Nomad Girls Community and The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss.
“I use discipline as a way to allow myself to experience all of the amazing freedoms that I have.”
“In that place of vulnerability is where magic happens.”
“You don’t actually have to do it alone, you just have to do it with someone that you 100% believe in.”
“Slow down and listen to yourself and reflect on, ‘how do you feel?'”
Want to start meeting and connecting with people more regularly? Sarah had this advice to help:
1) Remember that when you reach out to someone, that’s a real person, so craft your messages so that the recipient feels like a person.
2) Focus on approaching from a place of value.
3) You never know what could come from a connection so focus on your why rather than your fears.
