Get What You Want Club is a 4-week program that will help you pursue goals in a way that feels GOOD + gives you the support and accountability to actually achieve them 💪🙌🏆
Figure out what you truly want
This is where most people struggle, because they think they should want what everybody else wants. Hard nope! You'll unearth what you actually want, so you can create a plan to get it.
Name your goal +
make it doable
The most fun week! Once you know what you really want, your goal-setting becomes a ton easier and doesn't feel quite as overwhelming. You'll also learn how to ask for help!
You know how you always get derailed when you start making true progress? There’s science behind that! We’ll uncover why you’re sabotaging yourself + how to recognize it so you can achieve your BIG goal.
Get out of your comfort zone to achieve your goal
Once you get the sabotage road-blocks out of the way, the highway to goal-achieving is open but winding. We’ll navigate it by practicing getting out of our comfort zones - together.
You’re smart + self-aware, but you know you’re doing things that are getting in the way of what you say you want.
You see an ad for a big sale at Target and half an hour later you’ve spent $160 on shit you don’t need, and there goes your debt-repayment plan.
Two days into your third attempt at giving up caffeine, you've got an extra large latte from Starbucks in your hand because you smelled that dark roast from 15 feet away.
You meant to work on your novel, but you see a preview for a new Netflix show and - whoops! - there goes three hours of your evening.
You can look back on the choices you’ve made and glow with pride that you’re making progress towards what you want. Even if it’s occasionally scary or uncomfortable, you’re 👏 doing 👏 the 👏 dang 👏 thing.
After reading every self-help book and productivity article under the sun, I realized that ‘the usual’ approach to goal-setting wasn’t working for me. “Break your goal into small steps” just isn’t enough.
When I changed my approach to goal-setting, my life blossomed:
Find a new job, change careers, launch a product, start a side hustle
Finish that scrap book, plan a big trip, find a literary agent, decorate the guest room
Lower your cholesterol, bench press x pounds, run a faster mile, sleep 8 hours a night
Learn a language, take a specific test, get accepted into that acedemic program
Where was all this resistance hiding?!
"Going over the workbook was so powerful. I'm surprised how much craaaaaaap came up for me over my goals. Where was all this resistance hiding??! Pretty sure it was behind "I'll do it tomorrow" and "Yeah, sure, but..."
Happily, I've already checked off 3 of my 20 Uncomfortable Things, and I'm almost done with step one. Yay!! Thanks again for a great course!"
I submitted my work to a writing contest + had a tough conversation with my boss!
"I took Get What You Want Club to help with my writing goal and now I'm 25% done with my novel!
I've studied goal-setting before and I was worried it would all be stuff I'd already heard but Sarah was the first person to talk about doing uncomfortable things and tracking efforts, not outcomes. Since taking this workshop I've entered my work into a writing contest and had a tough, frank conversation with my boss!"
I booked 3 new clients!
"I wasn't going to send out another email newsletter to clients because we all hate spam and do they really need to hear from me every single month? But I decided to get uncomfortable (like Sarah taught me) and I booked three jobs because of that email!
Since then, I always take a breath and just go for it, and I'm always glad I did it. Sarah is so fantastic with her great ideas and her motivation — take any and all courses this woman has to offer."
