In this week’s interview, we have the pleasure of introducing you to Sarah Kalmeta, Coach and Wellness Practitioner of Pivot Point.

Having worked hard, and played harder, for 15 years in the corporate world, Sarah understands the hidden dangers of high performance and the impact it has on people’s lives, both personally and professionally. After her own experience with overwhelm and burnout, she realised she had been living for other people and their definitions of success. Through her own journey, Sarah has learned how to transform challenging situations into growth and enlightenment. It is now her mission to help others reframe and vocalise their individual expression in order to live a more holistic life in alignment with their values and true selves.

Connect with Sarah
Let’s start with the timeless 60 seconds ‘elevator pitch’, what’s yours?

I’m a coach and wellness practitioner ready to help YOU build resilience, cultivate awareness and breathe authenticity. Through 1-1 coaching sessions,  online programs and wellness practices such as meditation, Reiki and Yoga, I help you navigate life’s changes and embrace emotional mastery, healthy boundaries and communication. Are you ready to dive deep and regain focus and clarity in life?

At one point or another, it is inevitable that challenges will pop up in business. What’s your approach to overcoming challenges?

I leverage my network of friends, family, mentors, and industry colleagues to ask for advice and support. I wouldn’t be where I am at today without them.

Sales and marketing are two very important, but different, functions within a business. What is your number one sales tip?

Be of service to others. Show them how you add value to their life or business and be genuine. Build a community. The rest happens naturally.

What is your favourite business tool or system?

I am in love with Trello to keep me organised and Acuity for scheduling clients.

It is important to celebrate your achievements, particularly during the difficult times. How do you celebrate your achievements?

I have a daily gratitude practice and do a weekly check-in with myself to see WWW and WCBI – What Worked Well and What Could Be Improved. This helps me recalibrate my sails when needed and reminds me of the wins.

Being in business is like an education in itself, what are the three most important lessons you’ve learned in your business?

Lesson 1: Take care of yourself first.  Healthy mind, Healthy body, Healthy business.

Lesson 2: Cultivate relationships and nurture them. Ask for help when you don’t know what to do. Your network is your net worth.

Lesson 3: Fall down 7, stand up 8. Resilience is a skill you can build. Use your failures to learn, pivot and grow. Remember, F.A.I.L. is simply “First Attempt In Learning”.

What business-related book or podcast has inspired you the most?

Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life by Nir Eyal and Atomic Habits by James Clear. Both of these books are ones I return to again and again to stay focused, maintain momentum with goals I’ve set and create my own reality.

The purpose of such an interview is to promote your business. Please tell us, who is your dream client?

My dream client is someone who is confident at work but feeling like there is more to life than money and status. She is wildly successful – a high-performing individual and business-oriented yet suffers from Imposter Syndrome and often feels alone, lost and stuck in her personal life suffering from anxiety, overwhelm and is constantly on the brink of burnout. She hasn’t nurtured her passions for a long time and is in need of support to reframe, recover and PIVOT into calm confidence and uncover her true self.

If you are Sarah’s dream client, please contact her through her website, www.sarahkalmeta.com.

Thank you for taking the time to connect with us Sarah. We are delighted to showcase you on our site.
