about building nations around work you believe in, creating infectious feeling and action through entrepreneurship and design, the process of screwing up your brilliant ideas until they become as beautiful as they were in your head, and the convoluted paths we take to make the great yearnings of our lives happen.
I also talk about the web projects I’m directing and what I’m learning from them, and I often give discounts and early access to readers. I’m happy to write to you, too (enter your email to the right).
I feel inspired and motivated after reading. I benefit from your words and see more possibility in my life and my business from your emails!
I open your emails because inside each one, I’m sure to find your unique and idiosyncratic take on doing your creative work in the world, your way, for the people you love to serve. I open your emails because I love your voice and I respect the way you do business.
You have the most unique voice! It’s so totally…you. And it seems like every time you are writing about something that I’ve been thinking about but didn’t even know it. You are an inspiration to me.
I invariably find something interesting and real in what you’ve written. Your voice is so unfiltered and your story is dramatic but always hopeful. I really like that your process of business building is intuitive and organic, and yet so successful. Your messages give off a beautiful sheen of love, for yourself, your clients, and your work.
Sarah, I read all of your emails because you write like a real person, not a marketing robot. When a message from you shows up in my inbox, it feels like getting a brief handwritten note in the mail from someone I met recently and really liked–a person I haven’t gotten to know in depth yet, but would like to.
I discovered your Field Notes in my Google Reader last night. First there were 2. Then there were 5. I was so excited! I love reading anything you have to say. Even if it’s to do with mollusks.Still Forming
Your emails are just so real! They’re like getting a letter from a friend. A particularly fun, interesting and insightful friend.
You are a great writer, and your content is always fresh. And, you inspire me to continue on the track of never becoming dull in the repetitive world of corporate America!
I really adore your voice. You read as a real, live human being with ideas and emotions and fears and beliefs… you aren’t afraid to share about your mistakes and you seem to embrace the fact that you’re always learning. Thanks for respecting us as peers and valuable contributors to your work. Also, love the hair.
It feels like a slumber party with business owners only invited. I get to listen to you talk about stuff that no one talks about but I’m always thinking about, and I feel validated & like everything I’ve been experiencing is legitimate & I’m not a freak. It’s inspiring because you’re always solving your own problems, and usually they were my problems, too, and I love being a part of that conversation.
