Sarah Rawley on Getting "Stuff" Done


Sarah Rawley races pro in the enduro circuit, is the co-founder of Colorado’s first women’s only mountain bike race, the Yeti Beti Bike Bash, and the VIDA MTB Series, a women's mountain bike clinic. She also has a full time job with Yeti Cycles. In case you didn’t have time to get that “thing” done, I think your excuses have just been removed by Sarah’s display of Type A level achievement. 

What I love about Sarah is she is a woman on a mission. A mission to grow the mountain bike community and get women into racing and mountain biking. She is that person who makes ideas happen. You might be hanging out with Sarah and say something as casual as “we should have a mountain bike clinic for women,” and she says, “OK, let’s do it." And she does. Because that's how she rolls. 

We talk about taking ideas from the concept stage to a viable business. And lest you think it's easy, how she overcame challenges along the way. But not just how she overcame them; how she reacts to them. I found it enlightening and thought you would, too. We tackle other topics like the importance of partnering with the right people and knowing your strengths not only in work but in life. She wraps up by sharing with those of us who aspire to be better riders how to use a safe progression to build your skills. 

Lots of good stuff today So let’s listen in and get up for what’s next:
