At 38, Sarah found herself a bankrupt single mum on income support, having lost a seven figure business in the recession of 2008. With her home about to be repossessed Sarah made a plan:
“I thought my life had ended when our business closed in 2008. With my home about to be repossessed and me and my son about to be thrown out, I had no choice but to act. I rethought the way I looked at everything and I redesigned my life. I took control at 40!
I went from income support in 2008 to becoming the founder of “Britain’s Most Promising Business 2012”, awarded by British Chambers of Commerce. The company I founded is called Simply Bows and Chair Covers, a business I started on a small business government grant and now franchised to 11 UK offices. I have gone on to develop property, become an international keynote speaker, a mentor and business coach to business owners and executives, and I’m soon to be a published author.
My intention is to inspire people by sharing the lessons from my bumpy life and business journey and to encourage others to build and maintain a growth mindset so they too can realise their full potential and push their most meaningful goals over the line”
