“A successful business starts with an idea, and the ability to execute the essence of that idea,” says third-generation entrepreneur Sarah Shaw. The celebrity designer and Sarah Shaw Consulting CEO is an experienced business owner who has created and nurtured six businesses selling multi-millions in sales. Sarah understands not only the complexity of a start-up, but also the thrill of it: “I love coaching people and teaching the steps to take, in the right order, so they can save time and money and shorten their learning curve, which means they can stay focused on the creativity of being an Entrepreneur,” says Sarah.
Translating ideas into action is Sarah’s strength, and she lends her wisdom willingly through her company Sarah Shaw Consulting, in which she coaches entrepreneurs through the process of taking their fashion, home, lifestyle, accessory, or widget product ideas from concept to reality. Sarah provides private one-on- one coaching packages that give entrepreneurs the overall know-how to create and launch a product as well as the strategies she used to grow her own million-dollar company. One of her special areas of coaching is teaching clients how to get their products into the hands of celebrities and then leveraging their celebrity clientele for press and sales. (Fans of Sarah’s products include Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Debra Messing, Cameron Diaz, Katie Holmes and Academy Award-winners Gwyneth Paltrow and Marcia Gay Harden.) Additionally, Sarah provides her clients with advice, systems and concrete information as well as creative input and even strategies for efficient time management, which is a must for her busy clientele, many of whom are mothers like she.
