Sarah Leads An Inspiring Life Inspiration Sarah is a true inspiration to both women and business-owners. Despite many trying times (including the sudden loss of her husband and the burning of her hotel) she never lost sight of her ambitions and pressed on with her bridge charter, as well as taking full ownership of her husbands business endeavors. Sarah was also a kind and caring mother to her four surviving children and a compassionate member of the community. It is truly inspiring to witness a woman who so expertly balanced the strengths which are perceived as most masculine (taking action, business-owning, etc.) with those seen as most feminine (care-taking, kind, compassionate, etc.).
