inspiring interviews Aug 03, 2023

From facing financial constraints to overcoming imposter syndrome, the entrepreneurial journey is filled with a myriad of challenges. It requires not just a strong will, but also the ability to turn setbacks into comebacks. Sarah Gleeson, a successful business owner and a personal development coach, exemplifies this spirit of resilience. Sarah's journey is an open book, marked by both triumphs and trials. A victim of a con man in the world of personal development, she had to rebuild her trust in the industry and herself. This resilience became a stepping stone to her growth.

Sarah transformed from a consultant to a mentor, helping others navigate their path to success. The journey wasn't without its obstacles. Sarah faced imposter syndrome, a psychological pattern where individuals doubt their accomplishments and fear being exposed as a 'fraud.' It took time, but she overcame it, learning not to compare herself to others and appreciating every experience that has shaped her journey.

As a business owner, Sarah learned the importance of discovering one's purpose and niche. Her experiences with starting her business and her unyielding belief in herself and the power of mentorship serve as a strong narrative of persistence and resilience. Her mission is to guide people in realizing their maximum potential by transforming their past pain into purpose. One of the key chapters in Sarah's journey was discovering her purpose and niche. She got her business off the ground by enrolling in a course.

However, she discovered that overcoming imposter syndrome and improving her connection with people was essential. This came when she allowed her personal stories to drive her empathy. Sarah believes that every experience, good or bad, serves a purpose. She used her past experiences, especially the difficult ones, as a foundation to build her business. She advises entrepreneurs to utilize their experiences to help others. The journey may be long and filled with obstacles, but nothing is ever wasted. Turning past pain into purpose, Sarah now helps others understand both the business and psychological aspects of success. Her program, 'Purpose Project,' guides people to find their voice and use it to make a positive impact in the world.

The story of Sarah Gleeson serves as an inspiration for every aspiring entrepreneur. It's a reminder that resilience, self-belief, and the ability to transform pain into purpose can lead to success. Through her journey, she has not only built a successful business but has also become a beacon of hope for others facing similar challenges.

Remember, as Sarah says, "every dollar spent and every experience, even those that didn't seem to have a direct return at the time, have served her in her journey of becoming a successful business owner and coach." It's about learning to trust yourself and your ideas and understanding both the business and psychological aspects of success for long-term triumph.
