An interview with Sadie Lincoln | Founder of barre3

Why She's the Toast of the Town

Sadie Lincoln is an inspiration. I first met the founder of fitness franchise barre3 at the Create and Cultivate conference in LA. Her story was so powerful I had wished we’d had more time to spend together. Fortunately, this summer I had that chance when a weekend getaway brought me to Portland.

I met Sadie and her team at their community studio. There she shared more about the founding story of barre3, her aspirations as an entrepreneur, and her dreams for the future.

Sadie Lincoln is a renowned wellness expert, media personality, and founder of barre3. From her flagship studio in Portland, Oregon, Sadie has created a unique style of whole-health fitness classes combining the disciplines of ballet barre work, Pilates and yoga. Her modern approach offers serious results, accessible programs and inspiration for balanced living. Barre3’s worldwide franchise locations and Online Workouts have attracted A-list celebrities, major publications such as Self, Fitness and In Style and everyday moms – just like Sadie.

Sadie began teaching group exercise 20 years ago while attending UCLA. She was awarded a Graduate Assistantship from the College of William & Mary, where she developed and ran the group fitness program while earning her master’s degree in higher education administration.

Prior to branching out on her own, Sadie spent 10 years at 24 Hour Fitness serving in a variety of roles, including running the group exercise program and developing global sales, marketing and brand communications strategy. Working directly with the founder and CEO, she helped grow the company into the largest chain of health clubs worldwide.

Today, Sadie is thrilled to own her company while raising her two kids alongside her husband and business partner Chris. – http://barre3.com/sadie

Why She's the Toast of the Town

 

Jessy Fofana has the kind of story that entrepreneur dreams are made of. Her first company, Femme Arsenal, (yes, she’s had more than one) was born almost by accident. What started off as a fun hobby whipping up beauty products in her kitchen turned into Jessy’s first enterprise which she built and sold all by age 27. Coming off that success Jessy went on to found her second company, La Rue PR.

The La Rue website describes the company as a project “born out of Jessy’s love for finding emerging designers and amazing indie retailers to help them realize their full potential and achieve success. Together with her LaRue PR team, Jessy’s strategy is to bring attention to each client by targeting media in regional, national and international markets to create the kind of take-notice, multi-faceted publicity campaign that delivers brand-changing buzz and media exposure. From brand development and marketing to traditional and new media relations services, LaRue PR provides the skill and experience of a large agency with the creativity, singular attention and affordability that can only be offered by a boutique firm.” – (c/o http://www.laruepr.com/about.html)

Why She's the Toast of the Town

I met Hilary Sloan at this year’s Create & Cultivate – a conference designed for female entrepreneurs in the digital space. Her outfit was on point and she looked every bit the part of a fearless woman rising the ranks in the fashion world. Not to my surprise, her savvy extended far beyond her flawless leather jack.

As we got on with our interview, Hilary shared how she made her way to the role of Director of Business Development for ShopStyle, the e-commerce arm of the hugely popular site PopSugar. Would you be surprised to learn that the journey started with a position in the U.S. government’s department of Homeland Security? You can bet I was. She also talked candidly about the challenges that came along the way including being told that she would never get a job in fashion.We also get the insider scoop on her Insta-famous dog Ella Bean and where the idea behind her account came from.

If you’re looking for an example of a women who knew her passion and followed it with all of her heart, look no further than Hillary. And for anyone who’s wondering if that crazy career change is possible this is an interview not to be missed.
