“YOU CAN START MAKING A NAME FOR YOURSELF BEFORE YOU HAVE ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES ON THE MARKET,” WITH SARAH AVIRAM
Sarah Aviram has held Human Resources and Talent Development leadership roles within Fortune 500 consumer product organizations as well as in smaller, high-growth technology companies. She has worked remotely from 12 different countries and wrote the book “Remotivation: The Remote Worker’s Ultimate Guide to Life-Changing Fulfillment”. She now has her own business empowering remote workers to stop the inertia of their unfulfilling lives and build ones full of the freedom, authenticity, and intention they desire ( www.sarahaviram.com). Sarah holds a BA in Communications Studies from the University of Michigan and an MBA in Leadership and Change Management from New York University Stern School of Business.
Can you tell our readers about your background?
I’ve spent most of my career in human resources and talent development leadership roles. These roles have taught me a lot about what motivates people to perform at their best and be fulfilled in their careers. From these experiences, my MBA in leadership and change management, and extensive personal research, I’ve created programs and processes that have helped thousands of people (including myself) have more fulfilling careers.
What inspired you to start your business?
In 2019, I worked remotely (for a company based in New York) while living in 12 countries in 12 months. The more time I spent with other remote workers, the more I realized that they still felt stuck and unfulfilled even with the freedom and flexibility of their lifestyle. Working remotely was only a band-aid solution for a deeper challenge — they didn’t find their work fulfilling. I leveraged my knowledge and experiences in Human Resources and Talent Development to write a book and build a business that would empower remote workers to create more fulfilling careers and lives.
Where is your business based?
My business is location independent. Currently, I’m in New York but my business is completely virtual and is wherever I am in the world at the moment.
