Designer Sarah Shaw on Women Entrepreneurs Radio™
Designer, Innovator, Coach
A successful business starts with an idea, and the ability to execute the essence of that idea.
As a third generation entrepreneur, Sarah is nothing short of an energetic innovator and is an information "junkie". With five businesses under her belt, Sarah understands not only the complexity of a start-up, but also the thrill. Translating ideas into action is her strength, and she lends her wisdom willingly.
In 1998 Sarah launched a uniquely fashioned pinked felt bag, and wore it everywhere she went. Soon, people were clamoring for them, and her handbag business Sarah Shaw was born. Within a year Sarah Shaw Handbags could be found on the pages of Instyle, Oprah, People, Lucky and Marie Claire magazines and in Anthropogie stores nationwide. Over the next five year the business grew quickly selling to over 1200 boutiques and major dept stores nation wide.
Sarah realized that her flare for design and conceptualization translated easily into ideas for house, home and lifestyle - to which Simply Sarah was born.
This e-commerce website is committed to providing beautiful and practical products for the home. Sarah counts celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Debra Messing, Cameron Diaz, Laura Dern, and Academy Award-winners Gwenyth Paltrow and Marcia Gay Harden among her fans.
Sarah was also behind the successful, made-to- order costume company, Raggs to Order as well as the wardrobe trailer rental company Rack and Roll Rentals Inc.. Her experience in production and entertainment has lent itself to unique approaches to packaging, marketing, distribution, and public relations.
Harnessing her expertise and extensive knowledge base, Ms. Shaw launched a 22-week Tele-seminar workshop called The Entreprenette® - A step-by-step guide to launching a product-based business from your living room. Sarah teaches all the secrets one needs to know to have a finished tangible product in your hands, in stores and on the shelves making you a return on your investment.
In her spare time, Sarah enjoys her 23 month-old twins, yoga, long walks and gardening. She is very close with her family and wishes her French husbands family wasn't so far away. Sarah is excited about her new Entreprenette business and looks forward to seeing great ideas come to life.
