Can you have three businesses at once, and live the multipod dream of variety, control, and fulfillment?
Sarah Hockett is doing that very thing and finding that balance. But it has not come easily or quickly, nor without a fair share of obstacles and vulnerability along the way.
Sarah has always been a side-hustler, in addition to regular jobs, and was recently working in non-profits. But bad bosses and toxic workplaces drove her to full-time self-employment. A visit to the Everything Conference in the fall of 2019 was a life-changer. Putting her story – her challenges and successes – out there started the process of finding the people who needed to find her.
Co-hosts Vanessa and Ted, and new special co-host Cristy, sit down with Sarah to discuss her approach to work/life balance, multitasking and how to carve out a path for yourself that allows you to help others.
