SOLUTIONS FOR PROFESSIONALS
Integrate the most important areas of your life in a way that works.
You don’t have to give up what matters most to you when you become a working parent: your marriage, your friends, you hobbies, your time and energy, your identity…. You just need to learn how to integrate all aspects of your life in a way that works best for you in this season of your life.
THE OPTIMIZE YOUR LIFE PROGRAM
A PRIVATE CONSULTING PROGRAM
I designed the Optimize Your Life Program to help professional moms and dads integrate three key areas of their life in a way that works for them: Personal Development, Marriage & Relationships, and Parenting. These are the three areas that tend to be neglected the most for working parents, but they’re also the areas that contribute to the most fulfillment when they’re working well together. We dive deep into each of these areas, but we also focus on how you can blend them in your own unique way to create a full and balanced life as a working parent. Together we explore the big, overarching questions that come up when you’re trying to juggle the conflicting demands of a career with those of raising a young family. We also identify the small, practical actions you can take to refine your daily routine.
WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
I was really struggling with time management and acting with intention. I was also having a hard time identifying my own needs within all the noise and how to make taking care of those needs my top priority. I have become really aware of how my own values fit or don’t fit with my activities and have been making a conscious effort to work and live with more intention…. From great little tips to deep insights, Sarah has set me on a great path.Beth D.

You can go through the program on your own, with your partner, or get a group of your friends together for a discount and even more community support.
WEEK 1 | ASSESSMENT
In this introductory session, you will discover the main reasons why you’re suffering from burnout, exhaustion, or a lack of fulfillment. We’ll identify your personal gaps in knowledge or skills, as well as the source of your most difficult struggles. You’ll learn fundamental principles of learning and habits so you can integrate what you learn throughout the program into your daily routine.
WEEK 2 | SELF DEVELOPMENT
All human development starts within. We’ll spend this week focusing on developing the overall foundation of your life. You’ll examine your core personal values, top priorities, and all of the different elements that make up your unique life. You’ll learn how to maximize your energy, reduce stress, assess your own needs, and problem solve more effectively.
WEEK 3 | RELATIONSHIPS
One of the biggest indicators of our fulfillment and success in life comes from our relationships. In this week you’ll learn how to improve interactions with the various people in your life: your partner, children, extended family, friends, colleagues, and other community members. You’ll learn how to manage conflict, demonstrate empathy, set healthy boundaries, and minimize distractions so you can remain engaged and present in your most important relationships.
