From Surviving to Thriving: Overcoming Trauma & Finding Purpose | Sarah Blankenship

In the face of tragedy and loss, she found the strength to keep going for her kids.

"I mean, if it weren't for them, I'm honestly a little afraid of what would have happened because they were my everything, everything I did for them."


In the face of tragedy and loss, she found the strength to keep going for her kids.

"I mean, if it weren't for them, I'm honestly a little afraid of what would have happened because they were my everything, everything I did for them."

 

Here's what Sarah and I discuss in this episode of The Life Shift podcast:

1. The challenges Sarah faced as a single parent after her divorce, including financial struggles and depression.

2. How Sarah's perspective on love changed after her mother's death, leading her into a codependent relationship.

3. Sarah's experience as a rebel Gen Xer - who didn't go to college and took a nontraditional path in life.

 

We take the time to cover her early experiences with loss and how it led her to seek out unhealthy relationships. Throughout this journey, we learn about Sarah's single-parent experience, how she coped with extreme poverty and depression, and how her children helped her get through it. By the end of the conversation, we understand how one moment triggered a change to lead Sarah to become a successful business owner and finally being able to build her dream home for her family.

 

In 6 years, Sarah Blankenship went from food stamps to six figures. She now uses her story to inspire others to excel in their own careers. Through her coaching business, Brite Launch, Sarah provides one-on-one career coaching and workshops with a specialized emphasis on accelerating Gen X careers. As the voice of Gen X Nation, Sarah is a fierce advocate, leader, and community builder for Generation X. Above all, Sarah has a servant's heart and loves helping others to navigate life's biggest challenges!
