I’m a high-energy, creative gal who loves coffee. I need it because I have three kids, a dog, and work a couple different jobs.
I love all kinds of coffee! Dark roast, light roast, iced, I love it all! A couple of years ago, I transitioned to drinking my coffee black, and I never went back!
I’ve been writing since I was a little girl. When I was in high school and college, I worked on the student newspaper, and through my English and Literature classes, I fell in love with essay writing.
I started a blog in 2009, and I’ve been publishing online ever since. I write weekly posts on my blog, and I also freelance write for other publications. Currently, I’m also writing a book!
I started The Sarah R. Bagley Podcast in 2014 because I wanted to host conversations with creative people. Each week I host conversations about creativity, writing, community, entrepreneurship, leadership, and overcoming obstacles to live a full, passionate, and creative life.
In 2016, I started a second podcast with my friend, Kim. This podcast, 25% Friends, is a conversation between Kim and myself about, well, everything! We chat about fitness, health, love, and goals.
I’m a connector at heart. I love meeting new meeting, having real conversations, and developing relationships.
I’m a part of several online and in-person communities of passionate and creative people. I’ve found we quit when we don’t feel supported. I love to bring people together to support each other, bounce off ideas, and come together for a common goal.
I’ve spent years feeling lost and uninspired. I searched for my purpose like it was a hidden truth I had to uncover, and I could only uncover it by toiling away, burning myself out, and striving for perfection.
After years of hiding behind perfectionism and attaching my worth to outcome, I reached a breaking point. I asked myself, what would it take to feel happy and fulfilled? More accolades? More likes? More gold stars?
When would it be enough?
That was my lightening bolt moment. I’d been running to someplace I believed was bigger and better than where I was now.
But I realized: there is no there. There is only here.
And it’s up to me to choose the bigger life.
The Sarah R. Bagley Creative Network is a suite of media all about choosing the bigger life. Bigger doesn’t necessarily mean more. To me, bigger means pushing to the edge of my comfort zone. Bigger means taking risks. Bigger means loving deeper and wider.
