I'm Sarah, the heart and brains behind Love & Spreadsheets and I'm so excited you're here! I'm a systems strategist & educator for creative entrepreneurs on a mission to help you maximize efficiency in your business so you can spend time on what matters most.

Equally right and left-brained, I think like a creative but act like an administrator, which means my knowledge of the color wheel and Rule of Thirds is nearly as robust as my arsenal of organizational systems and productivity hacks. I believe time is the most precious gift you can give someone, so I want to give it back to you by streamlining your business, cutting the clutter and noise, and equipping you with the right tools so you can get back to why you started this entrepreneurial adventure in the first place.

I live just outside Washington DC and can be found adventuring as often as I spend a night in with friends. I am an unabashed bookworm and constant traveler who believes life is a gift meant to be celebrated, Tuesday morning should be as memorable as Saturday night, and nothing boosts your confidence like the perfect red lipstick.

Systems Overhauls: Every business can benefit from more efficient systems and processes, whether it’s day one or 1000, and sometimes you need a little help to get there. During these 4-week projects, we'll dive into your biggest pain points — be it client management, project & task management, or content management — and work together to cut the clutter, streamline the heck out of things, and get you back to running a business and living a life you love.

Systems Strategy Sessions: You’ve read the blog posts, watched the videos, attended the webinars, and taken the courses, but they're just not doing it anymore. What you need is personalized advice about what's happening in your business. In these 90-minute strategy sessions, we'll deep dive into the top one or two organizational areas of business you're struggling with and identify what's working, what isn't, and why that's the case. You'll walk away with customized recommendations and an action plan to get you from stressed out to streamlined!

fun facts!

fact 01

I'm a total theatre nerd and visit New York City almost every single year to see Broadway shows! I've seen 21 so far!

fact 02

I'm a major bookworm and have documented every book I've read since the beginning of 2016 on Instagram. Feel free to ask me for recommendations! ;)

fact 03

I grew up in a military family, but have moved more times as a single adult than a military brat... 20 moves and counting!

When I came to Sarah, I was using multiple systems to manage my business. She has helped me define every single process in my business with a streamlined system and has it all organized beautifully in Trello with working checklists for me, boards for my clients, and checkpoints for communication with my team. She’s a Trello wizard!

Working with Sarah was unbelievably eye opening and clarifying! The email management hacks alone were well worth the price of our mentoring session! She teaches you why your business will benefit from organization, and then teaches you organizational skills that are not only effective but sustainable.

Sarah’s work with me on my business has given me the tools and confidence I needed to take on more clients and grow The Creative’s CFO.

My email inbox is no longer a point of stress in my day. I'm able to clear out my items every morning and have had an empty inbox ever since I met with Sarah!
