From "Hustle & Grind" to Living in the NOW, with Sarah O'Brien Hammond

From "Hustle & Grind" to Living in the NOW, with Sarah O'Brien Hammond

Episode 63.   “My hope is really for people to reclaim or to claim and know that they have the power to design a life that truly serves them first and foremost.” Sarah O’Brien Hammond

Sarah O’Brien Hammond is Chief Community Officer and Founder of The Network of Women. Driven by her own life’s journey, her mission is to bring together growth-minded women through diverse and unique experiences focused on helping them live their best, most fulfilled life. 

She is also one of New York City’s most successful recruiters and career coaches and a proud mother of two daughters and a fur baby, a wife, and fitness enthusiast. 

What started as a side hustle, quickly became her life’s work and purpose. Her mission is to bring together growth-minded women through diverse and unique experiences focused on helping them live their best, most fulfilled life and hopes that the members of the network find greater clarity, fulfillment and happiness and create the positive shifts in life they desire. 

In this conversation, Sarah shares:

 - “Whatever you want in life, you have to first have a connection to self and know what it is you even want.”

- “I call it a midlife awakening which is really a woman's version of a midlife crisis. I think that's a bit too dramatic, a crisis. Mine wasn't a crisis, but it was more of an awakening of  “what do I want in this life?”

- “Ditching the hustle and grind, which I think is also a myth that we have to work hard and grind it out. And every day is just a churn and burn. And I did that for 20 years and society pays you handsomely for working like that, but it's at a really big sacrifice and expense.”

- “Gluttony, gluttony, gluttony, that’s a very strong societal message.  Forget about happiness, just have a lot.”

-  “…mindfulness is everything, it creates awareness. It lessens that loud voice, lowers that loud voice in your head, whether it's limiting beliefs, inner critic, anxiety, it just turns the volume down. It allows you to power through really difficult situations. It lets you have hard conversations. It grounds you, it allows you to have awareness, which is key to everything.”

Founder / Mom / Wife / Athlete / Personal Development Addict

I am Chief Community Officer and Founder of The Network of Women. Driven by my own life’s journey, my mission is to bring together growth-minded women through diverse and unique experiences focused on helping them live their best, most fulfilled life. By day, I’m one of New York City’s most successful recruiters and career coaches. I’m also a proud mother of two daughters and a fur baby, a wife, and fitness enthusiast. What started as a side hustle, quickly became my life’s work and purpose. Fueled by the same desire that drives my role as a recruiter, I started The NoW to connect, support and empower women, who like myself, were looking for something more. My hope is that through this network, you too will find greater clarity, fulfillment and happiness and create the positive shifts in your life which you desire.
