Meet Sara HandSara Hand 2015

My personal mission: To spend the rest of my life working with cool people on cool projects that make a difference. Think big. Keep it Simple. Make it happen.

I purpose to be present. Personally I work each day to recognize the gifts and talents in those around me and to speak and life and possibility into them and the opportunities we face. I believe that together we are so much more than alone and work to cultivate collaborations. I believe that responsibility and freedom go hand and hand. I am a lifelong learner, passionate about my family, friends and the beautiful community I live in. I love traveling the world, meeting new people and learning about what makes them and the place they live unique in special.

For all of the above, I organize 3.0 Leaders a thought leaders’ conference annually, where new and longtime friends gather together. Some share from the stage, others in conversation with the goal of continuing to build out a network of thought leaders across sectors, with a global context and a desire to get things done.


I tend to be a busy person. I like to be involved. I like to make a difference. I can be a spectator, but I love to participate. Yet beyond all the activity, is the knowing that all of that is what I do. I do out of “who” I am. In contrast to…being…out of “what” I do.

Sounds funny to say, but this is all about “ME”. It’s about all the un-market segmented pieces that make up the whole ME all in one place.

For several years I worked with other coaches, consultants…with the questions, “How do I brand this, how do I get my message out?” It’s often hard to do for yourself what you do for others. So I looked for help. We developed strategies and processes and messages and cookbooks, yet something always seemed to be missing. You see the strategies were about different pieces of what I do, different areas of life that I move in…what was missing was ME!

Yet who am I?

I am a person who has learned and lives out a few simple truths. I have learned to become comfortable with the uncomfortable. I love learning new things, exploring and meeting interesting people. Dance, music and words whether written or spoken are incredibly valuable to me. I love working in my garden and the rewards of simply being able to enjoy it whether during the day or lit up in the evenings. Watching new life come forth and grow brings such joy.

What’s important?My kids

I am a person who is close to and loves spending time with my family. Developing real and lasting relationships that empower me and others to continue to grow into potential are a priority in my life. Appreciating the past, anticipating the future, and yet living in the present as a person of faith is something I reach towards daily.
