hi, i'm sara sweeney. thanks for popping by my site - i'm in transition.
i'm in pursuit of grieving - healing - from the way relationships evolve. as an artist, my portfolio spans poetry, curating gifts, baking, candle making and more that is to be discovered. I have musical talents playing the guitar, flute, piano, violin, and saxophone - but i've never learned the drums.
as a day-time tax clerk for my local county government, i interact with community members every day who face the sensitive, emotional work of wealth management (or lack thereof). as an only-daughter to two chronically ill parents, i'm facing questions about the future that most of my peers haven't encountered yet.
right now, i'm inspired by the work of atul gawande (being mortal), tori dunlap (@herfirst100k), and the incredible confidence i've gained by utilizing the budget software You Need A Budget.
i envision eventually becoming a certified financial planner so that i can be the financial advisor i need right now- one who breaks open hearts, holds space for fear, and ignites clarity. one that works best in the blended, suspended space of wealth, mortality, health, and faith. one who begs the questions to 27 and 72 year-olds alike: if time were short, what is most important to you? (atul gawande) and what do you want your legacy to be?
as i transition into wherever this tickling inclination is taking me, please stand by & be patient. i really think great things are coming!
what you'll find on this site right now regards my 8+ years of private tutoring and writing consultancy, which i grew as a lucrative "side-hustle" on my winding path toward financial independence.
i still offer case-by-case collaborative writing work, so if you're looking financially accessible and high-quality direction on a resume, essay, or writing product, email me at email@example.com or hit up my connect page. for that, i work on a pay-what-you-can hourly rate. if you're looking for an ongoing private academic tutor, you can find me and my areas of expertise on the tutoring platform Wyzant.com.
i donate my time as a pro-bono grant writer for organizations and small businesses that align with my values of responsibility, interconnectedness, indulgence, and liberation. causes i stand behind fight for the dismantling of white supremacy. i collaborate with institutions that uplift the financial freedom and economic justice of human beings regardless of (but not without regard to) age, sexual orientation, race, gender, ability, economic background, faith, or language. if you know or work for an institution that is in search of development and fundraising forces, drop a line to my direct email firstname.lastname@example.org
i so look forward to where this inspiration is leading me, and blending my creative knack as an artist hope to connect more deeply with folks out in the world asap. faithfully, sara
