The first step into Sarah’s Next Chapter came when her children, a daughter and twin boys, were born within a short period of time. “I needed to leave, as my then husband was traveling a lot and it was just not feasible for two corporate careers to coincide. But even though I did make the choice, I struggled with the loss of identity. It took me some time to let go of what had been. Since then, I’ve had many chapters!
Sarah’s entrepreneurial journey began in the way that many of our stories do. We take the skills from our corporate lives (in Sarah’s case, marketing and sales) and launch a freelance or consulting business model. But although this work was enjoyable, Sarah knew there was something missing from the mix.
It wasn’t until her separation and subsequent divorce that the call to follow her heart became too loud to ignore any longer and her new business, ‘Spark your Light” was about to be launched, with a focus on helping other business owners to truly connect to and communicate their own bigger messages.
But there was more to come, additional layers that needed to be experienced and peeled back, as Sarah explored new opportunities that mirrored where she was on her own personal journey before her current, blossoming business “Your Relationship Marketing Mentor” was born.
Along the way, Sarah developed and built a Circle of Support that has held, supported and stretched her. “I knew I couldn’t do this on my own”

About Sarah Tovey
In Sarah’s own words….”
I’ve loved all things sales and marketing for most of my life. I have always wanted to run my own business from the age of 10 or so. When it gets under your skin there is no turning back.
For the past 12 years, since leaving Corporate, I have been consulting with many different small businesses primarily in the area of sales and marketing. But as I grow a little older and wiser I now know that it is working with women that really makes my heart sing. In particular women who are transitioning into a new business or wanting to take their current business to the next level.
A single Mum of three beautiful kids, a daughter 13 and twin boys who are 11. Life is certainly full and vibrant, but together we make a great team as we navigate our way through this thing called life. I want to be a positive role model for them, show them that you can create a life doing what you love.
And so Your Relationship Marketing Mentor V3 has been born!
