Worry that if you start to feel good, you won’t like your life anymore?
Today I wanted to give you a very strategic tip about growing a business that most people overlook.
When I was in the first few years of my business and lived in NYC, I spent a lot of time “networking.” I went to a lot of parties and tried to meet people who were more well known than I, in hopes I could get a picture with them, they would post it on Facebook, and I could be instantly famous. It sounds so bad when I talk about it like this, but it’s true! And I think a lot of people get caught in this trap. I wasted so much time and money doing this. I was just so attached to appearing a certain way and finding the fast track to my success.
But it just doesn’t work like that.
When I moved to San Francisco, I didn’t know anyone. And people didn’t really network there. It’s just a different scene, with almost no social hierarchy. So I spent a lot of time at my computer, which led me to enroll in B-School.
The biggest takeaway I took from B-School was how to grow my mailing list, and I focused 100% of my business energy on that one thing. Before I enrolled in B-School, it took me 2 ½ years to grow my mailing list from 0-300 people. After taking B-School, I grew my list from 300-1,000 in 6 months, and then to 3,000 in the year after taking the program. Now, 7 years later, my mailing list is almost 100,000 people. This was not a miracle, good luck, or good networking. It was 100% from strategies I learned in B-School. Now, these strategies aren’t about trickery or sleaziness. These strategies include being of service, knowing your client, providing what they want, being real, being true, and being clear.
Having a great mailing list has allowed me to:
I am so grateful for this skill B-School taught me because it is truly the foundation of my business that I know will serve me for years. This is one of the reasons I love supporting women in investing in this program and being with them on their journey.

Here’s a little more about each bonus so you can make the right decision for you:
Bonus #1: Sacred Business Circle
A one-day, in person, intimate retreat at my retreat center in Medfield, MA, for entrepreneurs who need a divine intervention. April 20th, 2018. Spots are limited. (This retreat will also be available as a livestream, but I really encourage you to show up in person if you can.)
The backstory: In the 9 years I’ve been in business for myself, I’ve realized that having a successful business is equal parts marketing, talent, and magic. When I first started out, I believed that if I had a good idea and a lot of coffee, I could make anything happen. The truth was that my first few business ideas seemed smart on paper (“Advertising Wellness”: corporate health coaching, or “Breathtaking Bride”: emotional eating coaching for brides to be), but they weren’t what I was meant to do on a soul level, so work felt like rolling a huge boulder up a mountain. It wasn’t until I got that my calling (at the time – as you know, this is expanding) was to help women with emotional eating through empowering them to live the life they are meant to live NOW – and nurtured a consistent connection to the divine for direction, inspiration, and energy – that my business took off. What’s exciting is that over the past few years, my soul has called for an evolution in my work, and spending all of my energy on Live More Weigh Less started to feel like wearing too tight shoes. The more I connected with the divine, the clearer I got that I needed to create a model for Live More Weigh Less that was more sustainable for me so I could grow my business to include a new calling: integrating the sacred into everyday stuff, like your career, for example :). I’ve been studying the divine feminine formally for 6 years, though I’ve been interested and called since a little girl (all of us are), and in 2014 I released my first body of work on the subject, The Live More Method (part of my B-School Bonus), taught from this place at Live Free (my weekend event for hundreds of women entrepreneurs with Nisha Moodley), and at my 3-day retreats at Hawthorn Farm, HOME, and Wise Woman Winter. Now I am so excited to offer this intimate, in-person retreat where we’ll be combining guided meditation, ceremony, business coaching, and releasing + manifesting rituals. It’s going to be so juicy you’re going to lose your mind.
About our day together: Let me paint you a picture… The day before we gather, I encourage you to travel to Boston, check into one of the many hotels in the city or closer to my home just 35 minutes from Boston, have a delicious dinner, and go to sleep early. We will gather at my house at 9am the next day, and you will be welcomed by the embrace of the Moon Lodge, really good coffee and tea, and a hug from me and the other spiritual, ambitious, loving entrepreneurs. We will sit in circle together around a beautiful altar. The day will be designed around what’s needed in the moment but will most likely include meditation, guided visualization, dancing, journaling, coaching, sharing, rituals, and some serious manifesting. All of this will be with the intention for you to:
Lunch, snacks, tea and coffee are included. Breakfast, dinner, accommodations, and travel are yours to handle.

“When the Sacred Business Circle was discussed, I was immediately interested but began to worry if I wasn’t a good “fit” for what the group would be working toward. The moment I walked through the door and was greeted by this amazing gathering of women from across the country, I knew I was “home” and my anxiety melted away. Spending the day singing and journaling and sharing and encouraging these other beautiful creatures – each on her own but parallel journey – was one of the more powerful things I have experienced. Thank you, Sarah.”
“If you have a smidge of an instinct to join Sacred Business Circle, do it! Sarah provided the in-person guidance and sisterhood I needed to tune out the noise and doubt in my mind so I could tune into my soul’s calling. Joining Sacred Business Circle wasn’t just an amazing time surrounded by amazing women (although it was!!) but also an incredibly strategic business decision. I now feel confident that my soul is “backing up” my business, and the combination feels unstoppable. Thank you, Sarah!!”
Bonus #2: Live More Method
The Live More Method is a 6-part, in-depth audio course which combines spiritual discovery with strategic coaching to uncover your soul’s blueprint and make it a reality. It is deep and p.o.w.e.r.f.u.l. Here’s what some women have to say:
“Wow. This program held my hand as I stepped into living in alignment with my soul. Sarah is an incredible teacher, a clear guide, and such a loving support. The women working alongside me created the most amazing community. My life has changed in ways I could never have expected and has given me a whole new trajectory. Thank you, Sarah!!”
“The Live More Method program created the perfect platform for diving deeper into what I want in my career and personal life. Sarah’s laser-focus, transparent, nurturing coaching style gave me the courage to take massive action toward creating a life I love. The program allowed me to slow down and tune into what makes me happy to be alive and that creating a life around those things is within reach.”
“Being a part of the Live More Method has allowed me to reconnect with my soul’s essence. I am more clear about the woman I am and want to be in the world after going through the program. The combination of Sarah’s coaching and visual meditations really helped me dive deeper into my soul and find out what I needed to do to express her more. I am so grateful for this work, and will continue to implement in my daily life.”
