American Faces #45 -
American Faces No. 45
I met my subject for this American Faces installment back in 2001. Sarah Hanley is a wonderfully talented graphic designer who, when I first met her, was certain her career would track towards a large, cutting edge advertising agency. But the road of life often has twists and turns and changes in directions we cannot see when we first set out on our adult journey. Sarah’s road had stops along the way at a small food-focused ad agency, a large hospital marketing department, and other freelance gigs. Her road of life has also had a husband and two children join her in her journey. Family has a way of changing the direction we first set out on. Sarah now is a published author, something she had no “ah-hah” moment for when she was in school dreaming about Ad Agency life. However, this additional creative skill was there, and has blossomed into a wonderful world of artistic expression.
Sarah shared with me that doing what you love doesn’t always look like what you built it up to be. She started as a graphic designer and now adds to that talented resume the title author.
To those that read this. Keep dreaming! This world needs the future version of you.
Now is a great time to read a book or two (or seventeen).
