Sarah Ramsden is a Personal Coach and Nutritionist who works with women who’ve won the battle with major health issues, but are left feeling like an impostor in their own life: out of place, everywhere they used to feel at home. A brain tumor survivor who’s been exactly where they are, Sarah helps her clients stop wondering if they’re making the most of their second chance, and turn it into the most exciting and meaningful time of their life.

Entrepreneur Interview Q & A

1. What is your business/Business Name? What does your business do?

Going through major health issues doesn’t just change your medical records, it fundamentally changes who you are as a person. I help women navigate the disappointment and confusion that can come from returning to normal life after recovering from major health issues. They get to know themselves again, and start living in such a way that really makes the most of the second chance they’ve been given.

2. Why did you get into this field? What opportunities did you see?

Around 8 years ago I became the very person I now work with. I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, and multiple sclerosis (MS) in the same week, and that was quickly followed by brain surgery. This experience initially inspired me to quit my six-figure career as a designer, and return to school to be a nutritionist. My values, my priorities, and what I expected from life had completely changed.

After working as a nutritionist for several years I realized my true passion and opportunity lay with helping people who’ve recovered from major health issues, just like I had. There’s a complete lack of holistic support outside of the traditional therapy model. I don’t want people to think there’s anything wrong with them, they’ve already been through enough of that. I want them to see the incredible opportunity that lays before them as they look at their life with fresh eyes.

3. What have been your biggest challenges?

My biggest challenge so far has been finding my audience. This will always be a work in progress as I seek out individuals both online and locally, as well as connecting with doctors who’re giving their patients the good news, and discharging them from their care.

4. What has been your greatest reward?

Seeing my clients making huge realizations about what is truly important to them now, and taking action to make those things a priority in their life. My reward is witnessing them getting to know the person they’ve become post-recovery, and having the courage to change their life to match.

5. If you could change something, what would it be?

Traumatic life changing events like major illness can be the motivation to make more of our lives. If I could change anything, I would do this same work without my wonderful clients having to go through so much beforehand!

6. If you could give a new entrepreneur advice, what would it be?

Take steps that feel right to you. It felt right for me to quit my design career not only for my health, but also to align with my values. At that time I could never have imagined where I am now, but by always following what feels right, you will always end up in the right spot.

7. Social Media. Yay or Nay?

Yes! It’s one my main tools to help me reach and inspire others. You’ll find me mostly on Instagram and Facebook.

8. How do you market your products?

Through providing value to my followers through email and by chatting directly with my ideal customer in social media. I will soon start marketing directly to medical professionals.

9. Is your business a service or a product? If you are a product, how do you handle production?

Service, although I do have a digital product called Fearless Fermentation – an online fermentation classes for beginners. In this class they learn how to make Kombucha, sauerkraut, water kefir, and brined vegetables.

10. What is unique about your business?

It is based entirely in my personal experience, to which I’ve added coaches training, and health and nutrition qualifications for credibility.

11. Sell me your product/service.

I work with courageous people like you, who’ve taken charge of their well being, and recovered from health issues. Maybe it was depression, cancer, or an autoimmune disease, but whatever the diagnosis, you’ve won!

The only problem is, as good as it is to feel better, your life didn’t just go back to the way it used to be. You didn’t expect as many things about you as a person would change, and that’s where you feel stuck. You take less for granted, but you’d like to feel there’s more to health than this.

If anyone deserves to feel such contentment in life, that even total strangers can see it in your eyes, it’s most certainly you. Together we slow down, listen, and get to know the person you’ve become.

Post-Recovery Coaching allows you to finally stop wondering if you’re making the best of this second chance, and turn it into the most exciting and meaningful time of your life.

12. How can people get in touch with you? What’s your website/Contact information?
