“Expertly written, exceptionally well organized, and thoroughly ‘reader friendly’ in commentary and presentation, Organizing and Big Scary Goals is as insightfully practical as it is inherently thoughtful and thought-provoking.” – Midwest Book Review

“Sara talks to ‘real’ people and in ‘real people language’, and Organizing and Big Scary Goals resonates with those of us who experience self-doubt, self-criticism, and at times, lack of confidence. I love that she works on her goal right there alongside the reader, and I am sooo ready to get organized after reading this book!” — Cindy Chafin, M.Ed., MCHES, editor of Unconditionally HER Magazine
