Welcome to the latest edition of Tell Me About It: A Biz Babe Interview Series! This month we are hearing from Sarah Kucera who is the author of The Ayurvedic Self-Care Handbook.
This series is meant to be an inside look at other babes who are leading incredible lives, to serve as a source of information and inspiration for you to live your dream life! Let’s get after it!
What’s your company / job / “who” you work as?
Founder of Sage Center for Yoga & Healing Arts where I practice as a chiropractor, Ayurvedic practitioner, and yoga teacher
Your career purpose, in three words:
Authenticity, empowerment, care
What are you most excited about right now?
My book! It launches April 2 and I can’t wait for it to be in the hands of others!
What were some of the biggest obstacles you faced in the past year?
Though it has always been a challenge, the biggest obstacle of the past year was creating the space to maintain the work that I have already started while allowing myself to evolve personally and professionally. Specifically in the last year, this meant writing a book (something I was doing for myself both personally and professionally) while running my current brick and mortar business and simultaneously seeing patients. It’s difficult to step away for a moment or reduce hands on time with certain things and trust that everything will be okay.
List the top habits that keep you feeling like you can take on the world:
I always go for a morning walk (unless it is below zero), eat three meals a day, and meditate. These are key–and there are other components–yet, I do allow myself grace if something has to give here and there.
Any words of encouragement for someone trying to forge their own path?
Remember, it is YOUR own path. Don’t get distracted by what others are doing or feel like what you do has to be done the same way. You are your unique you and you’ll be most successful when you are working in a way that is most authentic to you!
It’s time to dance, and you’re the DJ. What music are you playing?
What book(s) changed how you think about work + biz most?
It’s an oldie, but the book E-Myth Revisited by Michael E. Gerber is one that has stuck with me for a long time.
If I could collab with anyone right now, it would be…
How can I not answer this question with “Oprah?”
When I need to hit the “reset” button on my life, I…
clean my live space and then watch a superhero movie with my cat.
I can’t start my day without…
a long walk outside.
I feel the most alive when I…
am outdoors, without a schedule, and not carrying a bag.
And lastly: what’s your biggest win this month? Brag about yourself!
My book! I finished recording my audiobook days ago, and it was a fresh and rewarding experience.
