re-write your plan for success.
new button nameWatch Webinar






If you feel burned out, overwhelmed, and completely stalled in your personal development, this program is for you.

I know you’re frustrated.

You work hard every day to develop your professional skills and personal habits. You strive for success.

But something isn’t quite right. You’ve had it. You’re full to the brim. You feel like a Jack-in-the-Box: one more twist and you’re going to pop.

You’re fatigued. You can’t remember why you started. You look at your task list at the end of the day and wonder, “What exactly DID I accomplish today?”

To put it simply: You want to work less and accomplish more so you can achieve even greater levels of success AND balance in your life.

You want:

» Clarity

» Ease

» Growth

» Commitment

» Peace

And most of all

» Success

The problem is:

You’ve worked yourself into the ground.

You feel like you don’t know how to start putting your life back together.

You set a goal and make a foolproof plan, only to second-guess why you bothered to set the goal in the first place.

You set your expectations so high that you’d have to be on stilts, with a pogo stick on a trampoline just to get close to the bar.

You feel like you’re a hamster on a wheel.

You’re stuck in a never-ending cycle of up and down and all around.

Have you created a fool-proof plan, only to wake up the next morning and eat a cupcake for breakfast while second guessing why you bothered to set the goal in the first place?

Do you answer YES to any of these:

» Have you lost your “why”?

» Do you hate getting up in the morning?

» Do you plan and prepare but fall short of your goals?

» You don’t believe you can cross the finish line so you don’t take that first step?

» You compare your circumstances to someone else’s journey and feel inadequate about your efforts?

Let’s regroup.

Help me help you put this behind you.

I want you to know you’re not alone.

You can get past this.

There IS hope.

How do I know?

I’ve been down this road too.

I have many passions and I’ve pursued several career avenues. That means I’ve weathered trials and celebrated triumphs throughout my life.

I’ve managed an art studio and gallery. I’ve been a certified Pilates instructor with True Pilates NY since 2003. I’m certified Level 1 Precision Nutrition Coach, and I’ve trained private clients along the East Coast for 15 years.

In 2010, I completed a M.A. in Interior Design from the Corcoran, with a LEED AP credential (the USGBC Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).  I completed residential design projects in Baltimore after that.

For the last five years, I’ve been climbing the corporate ladder as a project manager. These days, I’m a C-level corporate executive in three of our family businesses, two of which ship internationally. My husband and I have cultured a corporate environment and we outsource almost everything. We work from our home office. Our staff and sales reps also work remotely. I rarely, if ever, see any of the products we sell or the labor we hire. I’m so far removed from the “end user,” and I only converse with contracting officers via email. It’s incredibly isolating.

I’m steady and grounded and can guide a project from start to finish, minimizing any “wrinkles.” I can juggle many things, multiple tasks and maintain a cool, level head.

It’s not always rainbows and unicorns around here.

I’m an extroverted introvert.

This means two things are true for me:

(1) I constantly nibble at other people’s requests for help on their projects until I’ve bitten off more than I can chew—then, my projects suffer.

Hi. My name is Sarah and I have a problem saying NO.

(2) Some people see my calm exterior and assume I’m aloof. What they don’t see is my sensitivity to high-stress situations. I need, and crave, some serious chunks of alone time to recharge.

I had to build systems so I could keep my fears and limitations in check and ride the wave of any surge of energy and confidence I have.

That hasn’t always been easy for me.

I still stumble. Last year, I let the stress of running international projects get the best of me. It took me about six months to realize I’d buried myself in the sand. I gained 20 pounds in 30 days. I couldn’t sleep at night and then I couldn’t focus during the day. I was irritable and the people around me suffered. This was all compounded by the fact that I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me.

I started to panic, which of course increased my stress level.

You can see how this cycle quickly becomes quite evil, right? Can you imagine living six months in a miserable, exhausted, state of mind that crushes any shred of confidence or self-awareness?

Ugh. Nope. No thanks.

I finally had enough of that. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I started down the road of blood tests, hormone levels, food allergies, biopsies and Western medical treatment. It wasn’t until I sought the counsel of a Naturopath that things started to shift. She asked, “What have you done for your spirit lately?”

Say whhhaaaatttt?

While we tweaked my vitamin regimen and my sleep and exercise habits, I dove into the deep end of the pool to develop my spiritual habit, too. That meant I journaled. A LOT.

What did I discover?

I went back to my roots. I reread my journals from college and my early 20s. I flipped through my sketchbooks from grad school. I remembered what it felt like to actually help a client, to work directly with another human in a meaningful way. I remembered what it felt like to create something beautiful. I remembered what it felt like to start with “Why?” and let the inspiration flow. I recalled key moments with some of the clients I helped before I fell into the corporate world. I realized this is the critical component that’s missing in my corporate work.

I got to work redesigning my life around my responsibilities and commitments.

How do you design your life?


Prioritize health.


Redesign habits.


Reconsider priorities.

Do you have room for improvement?

Lifestyle Designer

I work with executives and entrepreneurs to reverse the catastrophic affects of stress related fatigue with a blueprint for a balanced lifestyle.

Why do I do that?

» I can’t keep this all to myself.

» I want you to help me HELP YOU.

» I want to help you rewrite your plan and rewire your thoughts.

» I want to help you be clear about your purpose.

» I want you to plan for success.

» I want to help you design your life.

» I want to help you upgrade your lifestyle.

» I want to help you design your life.

Some case studies:

» A senior gentleman came to me with high blood pressure and cholesterol. He’d negotiated with his doctor a three-month window of natural interventions to avoid going on prescription medication. We discussed a variety of strategies he could employ to achieve his goal. He settled on a few key points and we planned a course of action specific to his needs. He centered his focus on these key points and “stuck like glue” to his commitment. When he returned for his three-month check-up at the doctor, he’d not only beat his goal of lowering his blood pressure and cholesterol, he’d dropped his numbers even lower than before!

» A single mother approached me to help her gain some clarity as she began facing the reality of becoming an empty-nester. She’d realized once her daughter left for college, she’d lose a large part of her schedule (which is a large part of her identity) when the softball games, basketball games, and family meals were no longer on her calendar. She used my system as a road map to discover parts of her personality she wanted to explore and develop now that she’d have more time for herself. She was a little timid of this at first, but once she’d awakened this curiosity, a whole new world of possibility opened to her. Now, she has the tools to navigate and explore this new chapter in her life.

You may be wondering why you can’t just do this own your own.

I know I did.

I thought, “I got this far on my own. Why not push a bit more?”

I lied to myself like this for WAY. TOO. LONG. Even when I made strategic partnerships, like hiring a personal trainer 3x a week (HELLO. I AM a fitness trainer. Why should I need one to put me through my paces?), I remained stuck. 

I didn’t tell anyone about my desires and dreams. 

So even though the personal training appointment guaranteed I’d show up to the gym, no one was in a position to call me out on my emotional vacancy to my goals. This created an environment in which my negative self-talk and self-limiting beliefs persisted.

You’ve already come a long way (or you wouldn’t be reading this). I know you’re ready to develop your plan, strengthen your spirit and experience the shift you seek.

THIS is exactly why I’ve developed the Design Your Life program.

This is a 1:1 coaching program for executives and entrepreneurs who are ready to clarify and finally commit to personal development goals. I help my clients foster a personal culture of wellness and success by cultivating their body, mind and spirit.

As a certified Pilates instructor, interior designer and corporate executive, I’ve developed a specific set of skills over the last 15 years of my multi-passionate career. I lean on philosophies, tools and systems I’ve learned and developed to guide clients from overwhelm and inconsistency to clarity, commitment and balance. The end results often far exceed the original goals they’ve set for themselves.

You can redraw this blueprint.


Break your excuses.

Together we explore why you think you can’t do it. I help you dissolve those limiting beliefs one by one. Trust me. I’ve been there so I can see past your BS. Because I’m here to serve you—not please you—I can empower you to finally reach your goals.

Learn what to skip.

I use philosophies, tools and systems learned in my 15 years of independent consulting and solo-preneurship in various industries to teach you how to adopt the systems that work for you. Skip all the other noise.

Life requires flexibility to roll with the punches and resiliency to pick yourself up when life’s fist connects with your gut. I give you these tools so you can design a life you love.

Find a partner.

Think of me as your accountability partner. I want you to succeed. Together we’ll set up a system of checks and balances so you feel the pinch when you need to get your tush in gear, and the reward after you do it.

what you can expect:

During our 3 months together, I’ll help you slow down, clarify and concentrate your efforts. Through our work, we’ll conquer barriers and excuses and analyze former setbacks. 

I must tell you… I’m a tough love kind of girl. So you can expect me to serve you by telling you the truth. NOT telling you what you want to hear.

Clients enjoy working with me because I’m grounded, practical and loyal. Often, they confide their deepest desires and darkest fears in me through our professional relationship because they know I won’t bring any judgment to the family dinner table or the corporate conference table.

This makes room for open communication so we can truly explore what makes you tick without any fear of dismissal, rebuke or judgment. Removing that fear of criticism is powerful.

what you’ll gain:


You’ll understand that you CAN make time to pause, slow down and take a breath. Like changing the film reel for the movie playing in your mind, we’re going to rewrite your internal script.


You’ll clarify the root cause behind everything you do or want to do so we can center your focus. We clear out the cobwebs and junk so you can get clear about what drives you.


You’ll develop tools to help you concentrate and prepare for success in anything you want to accomplish. We narrow the focus to achieve more.


You’ll have an arsenal of strategies for proper and precise goal setting techniques that you can apply to other projects and areas of your life. We develop an understanding of deliberate action and delegate any other busy work that doesn’t serve your ultimate goal.


You’ll develop a sense of awareness and alignment so you can design your life with ease. With awareness, we strengthen your precise action toward your ultimate goal.


Control is defined as: noun, the power to influence or direct behavior. We work to melt away any needy, controlling behavior and develop a new mindset around self- and situational awareness.


What good are all these tips and tricks if we can’t get them to mesh together seamlessly and effortlessly? We blend these concepts in a meaningful and sustainable way.


You’ll cultivate a flow; strategies to integrate what you’ve learned in an ongoing and repeatable fashion. In our final weeks, we develop strategies to maintain flow and adjust our emotions when life throws us those inevitable curve balls.

how it happens:


Each week you’ll receive a video and accompanying workbook so we can dive into the deep end of each concept and put it to work.

» Month 1: Get DEEP

These 4 weeks are devoted to slowing down, clearing the decks, honing your focus and planning ahead.

» Month 2: Take ACTION

We dive into the DOING part of reaching your goals. We take measurable action and evaluate the results at regular intervals to assess quality of, and commitment to, the plan.

» Month 3: Work It Out

We use what you’ve learned in previous weeks to sharpen the tools in your tool box and integrate them seamlessly so we can go with the flow. Life WILL throw you curveballs, but you’re prepared for that so you can keep going with grace and stamina.

Live call:

Each week, we’ll have a private video conference to discuss the week’s intention, work and progress. It’s just you and me so don’t hold back.

If you seek a deeper intervention, a custom-designed VIP optional add-on is available for clients looking for an upgraded jumpstart. During this in-person intensive, I will meet with you in your hometown or city. We’ll review your current routines, evaluate your mindset, and work together to dissolve the barriers holding you back.

This is made-to-order coaching, so we work on your most pressing issues. To paint a picture of how this might look, here are some ideas from programs I’ve developed with former clients:

Pantry Purge

Clean out the pantry/refrigerator and rid the kitchen of tempting foods that derail clean eating efforts.

Closet Purge

Clean out the closet and rid the wardrobe of dead weight items you no longer use or need.

Farm Market

Shop at your local farmers market together to discover plant-based foods while getting connected to your community.

Food Market

Shop at your local grocery store with a strategy and meal plan.

Meal Prep

Prepare a meal together. Try a new recipe. Gain confidence to prepare your own meals in your own kitchen.

Gym Buddy

Go to the gym together to meet a new trainer or take a new class. This fear of trying something new pops up quite often. It helps when you have a workout buddy to take that first step.

Outdoor Exercise

If the gym really isn’t your thing, we seek out local hiking/biking trails for outdoor workouts. We get the minimal gear you need to create a fun workout in nature. If kids hijack your schedule, we can design a workout plan you can do at the park/playground.

Calendar Review

Daily/weekly calendar review, breakdown, plan and strategize. (THIS is sometimes the most transformational program block for my clients.)

While these things are deceptively simple, it took me a LONG TIME to absorb.

An example from my own life: I’ve always wanted to try road biking (think Lance Armstrong), but the idea of cleats clipped into the pedals completely intimidated me. I delayed this for YEARS. Finally, a friend took me to her bike shop and showed me the ropes. I spent an afternoon riding around my grassy backyard deliberately falling so I could get over my fear. Now, in my 5th season of cycling (I’m not die-hard enough to bike in the winter), I’m striving to double my mileage over last year and LOVING it.  I only regret that I waited so long! The breakthroughs you’ll experience when these concepts begin to integrate will astonish you!

“If you are most fortunate in your life, there will be a Sarah Reed to support you just when you need her most. For you, she will be wise and gentle. She will be strong and you will make that strength your own. She will care deeply and you will see yourself heal from her compassion and your confidence returned to you. She will be intuitively flexible, sensing where you are guiding her on any given day and how she best can help you help yourself accomplish what you came to her for. And, if you don’t know why it was that you sought her out, but only that things were not right, she will help you with that, too.”
