My Story

Hi I’m Sarah Pittendrigh, I am a multi awarding winning entrepreneur. Through the lessons and life skills I have learnt throughout my career, I would like to support you as your Business and Personal Breakthrough Coach.

Helping you turn your “I can’t” into “I can”.

Like you, I have had my fair share of turbulence in my life, (well maybe more than most)! I have experienced first-hand divorce, bankruptcy, being a single mum on income support and I was diagnosed and successfully treated twice for Malignant Melanoma.

Fast forward 10 years and I am at my strongest, I have used each obstacle as a learning curve to gain strength, knowledge and understanding. I am a multi-award winning entrepreneur the founder of Simply Bows & Chair Covers, which I have successfully franchised across the UK using my own franchise model. In addition my ex-husband and I remarried and together diversified his family farm into a multi-million- pound property portfolio.

I am not a believer in I can’t. I have never liked to be beaten and have always been determined, but at my lowest point when I knew something had to change, I knew that ‘something’ had to be me.

I had to have unwavering belief in myself that I could turn my biggest adversity into my biggest opportunity and from then on, I approached every challenge with what I call my 'I CAN' Method.

Whenever I have found things are not going to plan or I have started to feel negative or stagnated in life or business, I use my special 4-step ‘I CAN’ method and it works every single time.

Today, my mission is to teach this method to you, for you to use as a tool for your personal growth, or in your business, to help you overcome barriers and self limiting beliefs that are holding you back and to allow you to reconnect with your passion and get back on your purposeful path.

The ‘I CAN’ method has 4 pillars….

I IGNITE Reignite your passion, your purpose and connect back with yourself or your business vision.
C CLARIFY Regain an understanding of where you are now, why you are in this position, where you want to be, why and by when.
A ACTION Create and implement a realistic plan to achieve your utopian goal.
N NURTURE To nurture the process, which includes nurturing yourself and your own inner wellbeing to ensure you do not fall back into the negative pattern/state.

Are you ready to prove to yourself that YOU CAN?
