621 Sarah K Peck: Hustle Culture
How to Understand Your Full Value as a Female Entrepreneur
No one ever said owning a business was easy.
Our work as entrepreneurs is never done and it never seems like there are enough hours in the day to check off that growing ‘to do’ list. It’s easy to fall into the trap of being a “human doing” instead of a human being, getting burned out and frustrated with the very business meant to manifest our dreams.
So, it may seem counter intuitive to learn that when we slow down, we actually speed up our progress.
Today we talk about the negative impact “Hustle Culture” has on female entrepreneurs, how we can focus more on attraction rather than pursuit, and why slowing down leads to greater productivity.
Sarah K Peck is the founder and CEO of Startup Parent and the host of The Startup Parent Podcast, an award-winning podcast featuring women in entrepreneurship, business, and parenting. She writes about work, culture, and parenting, and her work has been featured in Forbes, Inc, Fast Company, The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, and more.
Sarah started out in environmental psychology and design, and with her Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning, she focused on international design projects before charting out a path as an entrepreneur in media and communications. Her goal was to change the way we talk about the world around us and how it influences our behavior and wellbeing.
In 2011, Sarah began consulting with Y-Combinator backed startups, and launched her own consultancy in 2013. Today, she’s the CEO and founder of Startup Parent, a company focused on the narratives we share (and the ones we don’t share) about work, parenting, and motherhood.
