HELLO! I’M SARA ANNA POWERS.
I’m a Success Coach and The Copy Couturier™ for you, the motivated, dedicated, faith-filled entrepreneur who is ready to pursue your powerful purpose.
Did you grow up with big dreams of leaving a lasting legacy in the world? Me too! When I was little, my goals were to go to Princeton and then to become a Supreme Court Justice! But perhaps your dreams have been bruised and battered along the way? I can identify!
I always thought that if I just worked hard enough, I’d achieve everything I desired. So I gave up parts of my childhood in order to meet my goals. I was a cheerleader, the lead in an Equity theater production, and the valedictorian of my prestigious (and expensive) prep school. I barely slept as I spent hours and hours engaging in activities that were meant to impress people and build my resume.
But I quickly learned that hard work does not guarantee success.
I met my dream goal of getting admitted to Princeton, only to find out that after spending thousands of dollars every year for me to attend private school, my parents couldn’t afford Princeton’s $30,000/year price tag. I went to a state school on a full scholarship, and I tried to keep my spirits up and to be grateful for my opportunities, as all good Christian girls are told to do.
I got a scholarship to law school, too, but learned that it’s basically impossible to be a Supreme Court Justice unless you’ve attended a top-tier law school and made stellar grades throughout. While I attended a well-reputed school and made good grades, I didn’t meet the necessary qualifications to go after what I had always thought was my dream job.
I took a “good” job just out of law school, making nearly $100,000 as my starting salary. I had a handsome fiancé with a posh British accent, a beautiful three-bedroom house in a family-friendly suburb, and I was on a career path that would lead to eventual partnership in a reputable law firm.
To everyone on the outside my life seemed pretty awesome, but I was dying inside.
I took 3 days total off in my first year and a half of work, and I worked most weekends. I missed my grandfather’s funeral for work. I missed Thanksgiving with my family even after buying a plane ticket when my boss told me I needed to work through the holiday. My relationship crumbled as I poured all of my energy into my job and had nothing left over for my partner. After 9 months of me pouring my soul into work at the expense of my connection with my fiancé, my engagement ended.
Then, the unthinkable happened.
The economic downturn hit, and I lost that “cushy” job. I was looking at a mortgage that I had no way to pay, and I was terrified. I remember one of the partners saying, “I’m so sorry. One day I promise you’ll look back on this day as one of the best days of your life.”
Really, I thought? I doubted that would be true. I felt like a failure.
BUT GOD. God is bigger, God is greater, and God is GOOD!
In the midst of this trial, I clung to my faith. I KNEW that God had a plan and a purpose for my life, and I prayed diligently for His help: to bring me work that was fulfilling, to give me a future, and to give my life the purpose that I knew He had for it!
The road has been longer than I expected, but God continues to fulfill my desires in His perfect timing. I know that He will do that for you, too! And part of my purpose is to help you clarify and fulfill YOUR purpose.
If you’re wondering about how God answered my prayers for a meaningful life and work, I’ll give you the Cliffs’ Notes version. God gave me a position at a prestigious Big Law firm, which I held for nearly 5 years. When that job demanded that I leave my home and live in hotels for ten months, He opened the door for me to work for the Firm I’m at now, where I feel both valued and valuable.
God brought me the most amazing relationships with other women who speak life into me and encourage me as I wait on Him to connect me with my future husband.
And God opened the door for me to fulfill my dream of running my own coaching business in January 2015. I spent my first year and a half in business coaching women who struggle with weight, size and shape, to begin to love their bodies NOW so that they can step into their full potential. (Part of my story is a long-time struggle with anorexia that left me weighing 103 pounds at 5’7” and then a struggle with binge-eating that drove my weight up to 220 pounds. I have gratefully been living at a steady, healthy weight for the last decade. You can read about that part of my story right here).
After building my wellness coaching business and helping dozens of women find freedom from food obsession, more and more faith-centered entrepreneurs began coming to me with the desire to create or up-level their own heart-centered business. I heeded the call and began the transition to Success Coach, and I now help motivated, dedicated, online entrepreneurs clarify and fulfill their powerful purpose in life and business.
You do not have to settle for a lackluster life of soul-depleting work. You are here for a reason, and you have God-given gifts and talents that were meant to be unleashed in the world! Let’s get to work and start pursuing your powerful purpose.
