From Corporate America to Owning a Business
In 2002, I found myself wanting greater flexibility in defining my role and work schedule. But this was difficult to do in my salaried position within a corporate environment. As much as I tried to redefine my role and gain the flexibility I sought, the organization was only willing to bend so much.

Career Strategy
Sarah helped me get at the essence of my expertise and passion, and assisted me in defining the ideal situation. She also helped me realize that ultimately I wanted to be my own boss but that I needed a plan to help me make the transition. After she and I developed this plan, I started down the path by seeking opportunities that revolved around my key criteria.

Outcome
Within a very short timeframe, I landed a freelance, telecommuting position with an agency. The position met most of my requirements – a flexible schedule, the ability to engage in what truly interested me, and the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the business. After a few years with the agency, I decided to make the big leap and start my own consulting business. I’ve been successful from day one. Now in my second year as a consultant and principal of my own business, I couldn’t be happier. Sarah helped me map out a solid plan to reach my goal and instilled in me the confidence to reach this place.
