Sarah Ohanesian – Improving your productivity starts here…
Self Made Strategies is now also available on the Self Made Strategies YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOG-mybCfvYWhoXo4vPoB5g

On this episode, we sat down (virtually) with Sarah Ohanesian. It’s “O-han-e-san”. But, as Sarah will tell you, she “will respond to anything that starts with ‘O.’ No stress!”

Sarah says that “Outwardly, (she) was on top of (her) career, running a multi-million dollar business, respected by (her) peers.”  However, inside, her stress had gotten out of control.  She lived to work, was exhausted, and felt weak.  She was missing family events, and had been diagnosed with chronic insomnia.  So she needed to figure out how to get back to being her normal, Sarah-self.  That’s why she created a simple system to get back control of her day and life.  Guess what?  It worked!  She started accomplishing more, leaving the office during daylight and running a sustainable race toward success.  Now, she is helping busy professionals do the same, and is here with us to help you do the same!  Sarah will help get you from survival mode to smart business leader ASAP.

If you need to get more done, Sarah is your gal.  She is A CMO turned Productivity Coach – she knows what feeling overwhelmed is like versus that feeling of accomplishment, fulfilment, and joy you might be able to find every day.  Sarah’s goal is to get you from burnout to loving what you do.  If this sounds like you: “leaving work late, without an ounce of energy or mental capacity left for your family;” then, Sarah should be your next call (or email if you’re not into the whole “calling people thing”).  The struggle you feel between work and home life is real, and Sarah knows how to fix it.
