Has your body ever told you to slow down? Do you listen when your body makes you rest?

Sarah Taylor, Founder of Fitness By Sarah Taylor, runs a fitness community for plus sized women who want to feel confident, strong, and learn to truly love themselves inside and out. Sarah’s passion for changing the lives of the people in her community can often lead to her overdoing it and not listening when her body says no … which has led (more than once) to her body forcing her to slow down due to injury or illness.

Listen in as Sarah shares her entrepreneurial journey and what it really looks like to get stuck on the hustle until burnout roller coaster … and how she finally learned that running a successful business doesn’t matter if you’re not well enough to enjoy it!

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Listening to your body and slowing down for your health
  • Building trust and authentic relationships with your clients, not just on a transactional level
  • Doing the inner work to heal from your trauma so you can share it and not be triggered
  • Using affirmations to build your confidence
  • When your priorities shift due to a pregnancy
  • Pivoting your business from a brick and mortar to going virtual, during a pandemic and life events
  • Setting boundaries and healthy habits  within your business to have work-life balance


“At the end of the day, what it comes back to is if you're currently miserable, what's the point?” - Sarah Taylor
