Want to join us at the sandy beaches of St Pete’s Beach in Florida? This January, we’re convening our first-ever Startup Pregnant retreat weekend for women entrepreneurs and female founders. If you’ve been craving meeting more business owners and working women navigating parenting and business, read on.
For our fall podcast hiatus, Sarah’s on a break so she can focus on writing. In this first update, she shares how much changed even in the first week of making a decision to pause—and why making space was so important. (Plus, a huge piece of hers was published in Harvard Business Review the week she decided to pause—coincidence? You decide!)
What will you finish by the end of the year? We’ve got 90 days left. Here’s how I think about planning and structuring the fourth quarter of the year—and what to be aware of as we head into the year end.
As we gear up for Fall, I feel the urge to stop this podcast for a while. To be honest, it scares me a little—I can’t stop, can I? I took this question to the group of smart women in our online Startup Pregnant community group and got a ton of wonderful feedback.

Summer Break? Where Do the Kids Go While Their Parents Work and Other Thoughts On Summertime — Episode #124
Startup Pregnant is taking a summer break! That’s right, we will be off for the month of August, but back to you with fresh weekly content in September. For this summer’s final podcast, Sarah digs into: the real life struggles of being a double working parent family over the summer, the breaks she wishes she’d taken as a new mom and business owner over the past few years, and explains why literal brakes—like on cars—are the real reason we can get so much done.
Motherhood, work deadlines, unexpected projects—chaos can descend quicker than you can make your morning coffee. Here are three tools we love to regain focus and clarity.
Today Sarah shares a simple and universally applicable tool which is the best way she’s found to develop more empathy and more understanding and to arrive at a place where we can have better conversations. It’s the same tool that Sarah has personally used to grow her business, taught to her mastermind students, and to her speaking audiences around the world.
