In 2017, I quit my job doing North American marketing strategy for Disney to pursue travel content creation full time. People told me I was insane to quit a stable job, but I trusted myself. My salary was low, I felt chained to a desk, and, worst of all, I was building someone else's dreams.
IF YOU DON’T BUILD YOUR DREAMS, SOMEONE ELSE WILL HIRE YOU TO BUILD THEIRS.
Fast forward to 2020 and I make a comfortable six-figure salary as an entrepreneur, show host for GoDaddy and Travel + Leisure, and influencer with over 200K followers and 9 million monthly impressions. I’ve been featured in Forbes, Frommers, Travel Channel, and other major publications. My work has appeared in 40+ countries and in multiple languages. I’ve been in commercials with Babbel, Royal Caribbean, and GoDaddy. I run a successful tour company in New York City with weekly sold-out tours and have nine eBooks about the city.
I share this not to brag, but to show you what is possible for ANYONE.
HOOK TO COURSE
SINCE I QUIT MY OFFICE JOB, I HAVE QUADRUPLED MY INCOME DOING WHAT I LOVE.
THIS COURSE IS MY EXACT SUCCESS BLUEPRINT
You may have tried other courses, so what makes this one different? I’ve actually achieved success from the strategies that I’ll teach you. I know they work because I’ve done them personally, unlike many other “teachers” out there that are selling a course just to make money.
INTRO TO COURSE
BE YOUR OWN BOSS (BYOB) ACADEMY
In this comprehensive (yet fun) course, I provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to build your own brand. I like to keep things fun and approachable, which is why I named my course “Be Your Own Boss” aka BYOB. I believe that building a business is fun, and I’ll guide you through your journey hand-in-hand!
My academy goes beyond simply teaching you how to gain a large following on social media or how to build a business. It does BOTH and MORE. It teaches you how to monetize every aspect of your business and launch a product/service that your customers will love.
This course includes 26 video lessons (more added monthly), a PRIVATE consulting call with me, email templates, and professional contacts to walk you through exactly what you need to do to succeed in building your dream brand.
You’ll also get access to this course FOREVER; including future updates and lessons without ever paying extra. In addition, you will become a part of my Facebook community where you can network with like-minded individuals in the program and get to ask me questions in real-time.
I know exactly what it takes to build a brand from scratch because I’ve personally done it. The BYOB Academy is the course I wish I had when I started. It would have saved me a lot of time and headaches.
“THE BEST INVESTMENT IS IN THE TOOLS OF ONE’S OWN TRADE.” – BENJAMIN FRANKLIN
“Your course has literally been a step by step for me and that is how I learn. So glad I jumped in on it when you offered it a while back!” – Michelle
"I am a tour guide from Amsterdam and when COVID hit, I had no income to speak of. I knew Sarah from YouTube and was aware of her business sense. All of her tips and lessons are so valuable to me! I can translate so much from what she is doing to my own business even though it is not exactly the same. The way she explains everything is clear and practical." – Louke
FURTHER BYOB BENEFITS
JOIN MY ACADEMY AND LEARN HOW TO MAKE YOUR BRAND STAND OUT FROM THE REST
The most common question I get from people is how to stand out in a seemingly saturated market.
In BYOB Academy, you’ll learn:
- What I did to grow my following to 200,000+ with 9 million monthly impressions and over 11 million YouTube views in only two years.
- How I went from no experience in NYC’s tourism industry to selling out tours weekly in a saturated tourism market.
- How to market yourself in a unique way that stands out from the crowd.
- What it takes to stand out to large brands and get selected for major jobs (like being a show host on GoDaddy or Travel + Leisure)
- How to get your brand featured in major publications like Forbes, Wall Street Journal, Travel Channel, and more.
But you’ll learn MUCH MORE than that too.
Frequently asked questions...
I've tried other courses and they didn't work for me. How is this different?
The difference is that unlike many other "teachers", I have actually accomplished these things and am teaching you how it REALLY is done. I'm not selling the course just to make money because I have other income streams. This course is EXACTLY what I did to grow my business from $300 to six-figures. I know it works because it has been proven. I wouldn't sell you something I don't believe in and haven't tested personally!
It seems expensive. Is it worth the investment?
Yes, it is worth the investment. Think about it. The strategies I'm teaching you won't only get you sales of your product or service, but they will also help you grow a following. With one just FREE hotel stay or one FREE meal at a high-end restaurant, you'll make your investment back. And getting things for free is just the beginning!
Wait until you start getting paid hundreds or thousands of dollars just for an Instagram post. Or until you make 5-figure or 6-figure sales to customers who love your product. It is absolutely worth it and I'm here to guide you each step along the way.
Do I really need this? I think I could google this information.
If you've ever dreamt of starting your own business but became overwhelmed with the idea of where to start, then joining the BYOB Academy will help you.
Googling information only brings you so far in the process and is extremely time-consuming. The number of hours that I have spent finding information online is wasteful. In the BYOB Academy, I provide you with a short cut to success because I've actually accomplished building my own successful brand and will give you the answers you need right away. If I can do it, you can do it.
Can I REALLY trust you?
I grew my business from $300 to six-figures in two-years using the methods I teach in the BYOB Academy. I make a comfortable six-figure salary as an entrepreneur, show host for GoDaddy and Travel + Leisure, and influencer with over 300K followers and 9 million monthly impressions. I’ve been featured in Forbes, Frommers, Travel Channel, and other major publications. My work has appeared in 40+ countries and in multiple languages. I’ve been in commercials with Babbel, Royal Caribbean, and GoDaddy. I run a successful tour company in New York City with weekly sold-out tours and have nine eBooks about the city.
I share this not to brag, but to show you what is possible for ANYONE. I had no experience as an entrepreneur and I made it happen. You can too!
