MEET OUR FOUNDER FOR INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY - Freedom Moses

MEET OUR FOUNDER FOR INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

MAR 07 | 21

MEET OUR COOL, CALM & FEARLESS FOUNDER, JUST IN TIME FOR INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY


If you ask us, every day is a good day to celebrate women’s empowerment—and all of the amazing achievements we’ve accomplished, from raising kickass families to inventing invisible glass (yup, a woman did that in 1938). But the arrival of International Women’s Day 2021 presented the perfect opportunity: to give you five minutes with our favorite female founder, Sarah Gurt. For the uninitiated, Sarah is the mastermind behind all things Freedom Moses, including our too-cool prints, those joy-sparking colors and, of course, the comfy, light-as-air feel of our sandals.

In honor of amazing females—and International Women’s Day—Freedom Moses will be donating 10% of every purchase made on March 8, 2021 to Girls For a Change, an organization that empowers young women to create social change in their own neighborhoods. We can all do our part to support the next generation of female leaders...and even better if this women’s empowerment day gives you an excuse to add a cute new pair of shoes to your closet.

Now, onto our chat with the always inspiring Sarah.

 

01. What’s the one piece of advice you wish you knew before starting your own business?

Take your mornings off to do things you love! I practice yoga, meditate (well, not daily) and would love to add more things to my morning routine. Drawing, walking and clearing my mind is on my list for 2021!

02. What are some of the smartest ways you prepared yourself to launch Freedom Moses?

Ah, I didn't at all! It's been a huge learning to surf the big waves of experience; everything with Freedom Moses has been organic, which is the way I prefer things to happen. But if I was a planner at heart, I would have taken more time to make physical moodboards and learn to organize folders. :)

 

03. What are some stellar sources of info (and inspo) for starting a business?

I love the podcast "How I Built This With Guy Raz” and I also listened to the book 10% Happier by Dan Harris. On the women’s side, since this is after all International Women's Day, “SuperSoul” by Oprah!

04. Who are some fellow female entrepreneurs you look up to and why?

My friend Brielle Collins, a yoga teacher who just launched her website (go check it out!). It’s not just a wonderful platform to practice with but it’s a female community where meditations and women related content are beautifully delivered.

 

05. How do you make sure to set aside time to take care of yourself, so you can be the best boss possible?

My habits change constantly—I’m a typical Gemini in that sense—but I always try to make time to do the things that make me happy, like practicing yoga, dancing with my earphones on or walking barefoot on the beach. But spending time with my sister and girlfriends has always been instantly uplifting for me!

 

And there you have it, straight from the mouth of our very own boss lady. Sarah’s the one who created the Freedom Moses Chill-Mandments—so she’s perfect proof that female founders can be totally down-to-earth and not take life too seriously, while meeting the demands of entrepreneurship. Though, we’d like to add that she always has a great pair of shoes on her feet.
