A careergasm. According to Sarah Vermunt, yes it feels as good as it sounds. Really good. And honestly, isn't that what we're all searching for? It leads to the inevitable job hopping or Sunday nights crying at home because Monday's suck and you just want to figure out what the hell it is that you want to do that's going to feel good. For Sarah, her journey began long before the breakdown in the middle of a crowded Starbucks, but that was the catalyst for quitting her job and finally doing work that felt good. Now, she's a coach, booked out months in advance, and a published author. And she's sharing her story. We're talking about self-sabotage, owning who you are even as a chronic people-pleaser (it's totally possible), setting boundaries with yourself as an entrepreneur, and why rest is productive. Fill up your coffee and get cozy. This is one hell of a convo.
