1. Tell us a bit about yourself
Hi, I’m Sarah Irvin! I am a southern entrepreneur from East Tennessee currently based out of South Carolina. I’m the founder of two successful businesses, Quick Tan Sunless and Powerhouse Coaching. Just a few years ago with nothing but a vision board and 10 clients, I quickly grew to hundreds of clients in the first few months. My mission is to create nurtured entrepreneurs through community and support. I know it is not just about
starting a business, it’s about finding freedom and enhancing your whole self, all with the support of a community of other businesswomen to cheer you on.
2. What was your first job and how did you get it?
It was at a small town diner in Saint Claire, TN that I lived right down the street from called Di’s Diner. I walked in the diner one day at 15 years old and talked to the owner about wanting to work and that’s where I learned to make those good home cooked southern meals!.
3. How did you decide and get to your career today?
In 2015, I endured a premature birth experience that led to my daughter being in the NICU for 6months. I decided to open Quick Tan Sunless to make an income with a flexible schedule in order to be with my daughter for her appointments as needed. By pursuing my love by making women feel beautiful, I found my purpose to support and mentor other women to build their own empires. I want to help women achieve amazing personal and business success no matter how difficult their odds may seem to themselves.
4. What advice would you have given your younger self? Or what is the best career advice you have ever received?
Just take the first step, there is no perfect time, place, or moment. Stop overthinking it and take action now.
5. In 5 years, where do you hope to be professionally and personally?
In 5 years, I hope to have groomed Powerhouse Coaching into a team of amazing entrepreneurs that help empower and motivate thousands of other like-minded entrepreneurs. Professionally and personally I wish to continue to inspire, uplift and have a positive impact on those around me.
Stay connected with Sarah!
