I’m having a chat today to Sarah Lancaster from Sew Love. Sarah and I actually lived next door to each other when we were growing up but probably haven’t seen each other for about 15 or so years, so it was great to reconnect through the podcast.

Sarah is a passionate person doing inspiring things but like all of us gets uncomfortable and goes through challenges. Sew Love is a social enterprise providing pop-up fun spaces and resources for people to be creative, learn new skills, and get to know their neighbours. We focus on reducing landfill and strengthening communities in a fun positive way.

Sarah rode her bike out to our place which was fine until she had to ride up the Ngaio gorge. I wouldn’t let her use that as the answer to the question what was the last thing you did that was uncomfortable. We did have a pretty awesome conversation though. Today we talk about courage, about stepping out and going for it in life and business and the uncomfortable feeling associated with that. We also talk through how you focus on different things at different phases of your life, that figuring out if your concept is feasible never really ends, how important it is to continuously learn and not to stop because it gets hard.

If you like the episode make sure to leave a comment and share it out as it goes a long way to helping let more people know that Uncomfortable is OK.

Awesome podcast! A very honest and encouraging interview that has been a valuable reminder to focus on the things I can learn from disappointing or challenging situations, and celebrate the positive. Thank you both.

Im thrilled I found this podcast through Sarah's tweets. I have comfort issues and fear of failure so it was nice to hear Sarah talk about these things because I think she's living the dream and is successful at what she set out to do.
