In her conversation with us, Sara discusses her new book, Take The Leap: Change Your Career, Change Your Life, which includes over 60 stories of successful individuals who left their current position and took the leap into their dream career. We explore the common characteristics Sara discovered as she interviewed people for the book, how to prepare yourself before taking the leap, and why simply following your passion is a bad idea.

Sara also shares her own experience as a writer when the newspaper and magazine industry transformed and her job was eliminated. She speaks candidly about the financial considerations and how she has been able to build a successful career by expanding her scope and reach.
