How do you define success?

I believe success is defined by executing your purpose and depositing everything into the earth that you were destined to deposit while you remain here.

How have you used your influence to enhance the lives of others? 

To assist people with identifying their voice and being ok with launching out and executing that purpose in the earth.

How do you keep going when you want to give up? Or, have you ever experienced this before? 

Yes, I have experienced this before. I take a moment to recalibrate, rejuvenate and realign, but quitting is not an option.

How do you plan to make noise this first quarter of 2022? 

By exposing brand awareness and extending or adding value to businesses, communities and organizations across the globe.

What is the mantra that you live by?

Love shall remain my motivation.

What is it that one thing that Sarah knows for sure?

If God allows IT, IT has a purpose.

How can people connect with you?
