Sarah began her working life as a mergers and acquisitions lawyer at a leading international law firm. While she enjoyed several years building strong professional foundations, she found it increasingly challenging to reconcile the all-consuming corporate lifestyle with her personal passions for health, wellbeing, creativity and adventure. In pursuit of balance, Sarah and her partner started     Matcha Maiden     closing a gap they discovered in the health food market for matcha green tea powder. Matcha is now one of the world's premier health food trends and     Matcha Maiden     is leading the way with a growing community of over 1500 stockists including Anthropologie across the USA, Australian and US warehouses, and a very bright (green) future.      Sarah has now hung up the suits and heels to step into the business full time. In 2016, the matcha mission developed into a physical venue and cutting edge cafe,     Matcha Mylkbar    , which is taking the food world by storm. Sarah now splits her time between the two businesses and is thoroughly enjoying life as a full time funtrepreneur. She has also started a podcast,     Seize the Yay    , which investigates the difference between success and happiness, the importance of cultivating "joy" and showcases the down to earth, human side of her diverse and esteemed guests.

REAL TALK

With over 3000 women attending our 11 conferences over the the last 7 years, we have heard incredible stories of women starting their own business or completely changing their career to something that is more aligned with what their inner purpose is. Here’s a handful of feedback straight after our conferences.

 

“Nothing beats a room full of motivating women who want to change the world!” - JESS

“Run The World continues to be the most inspiring day of my year. There is truly nothing else out there like it for women” - SAMANTHA

“It was a magical day and I would highly recommend to any woman, whether they are interested in starting a business or not. I will be back next year!” - CHRISTINE

 

 
BEYONCé WAS RIGHT, WE DO RUN THE WORLD

If you’re still on the fence on whether you should come along to this life-changing day, let us ask you these questions.

Have you found yourself daydreaming what life could be like?

Have you found that you no longer connect to some of your friends and need more inspirational & positive influences in your life?

Do you wonder what your life’s purpose?

If you answered yes to any of those, you’re not alone - the women on stage have all asked themselves these questions and will be sharing their answers with you. Who knows, you might hear that one piece of wisdom, that one line of truth that will leave you breathless and remembering what you soul has been calling you to do.

Stay Peachy,

xx League Team
