sarah_chartier_familycropped8finb.jpgSarah Chartier, a Colorado bsiness owner who recently completed her certification as a financial coach. Sarah is also a franchise owner of The Spice and Tea Exchange Fort Collins,  a  ​Huge Packer Fan! Wisconsin beer, cheese, and Packers are in her blood!

Sarah is like many today – balancing being a business owner,  a wife, a mother of a kindergartener and step-mom to a middle-schooler,  juggling virtual schooling, continually expanding her own knowledge, keeping customers engaged, and, of course - shopping! Most importantly, learning to stay afloat when the waves are rough.

Sarah has made three career pivots, including to and from law enforcement (you have to hear this), and taking lessons learned along the way. She loves coaching - whether it is in the spice shop engaging customers in new experiences, in law enforcement with training, and now, helping others create sustainable lives to impact their future.

How does she it, what and how does she define important, where does she find her inspiration, and what does she want to leave us with today? Let’s find out!

Mariam Haddad - CEO & Founder, The Performance Communication CompanyMariam_Pic_resize8895i.jpg
Entrepreneur, Classical artist, Lyricist, Storyteller, Reinventionist 
On the way to our dreams, life happens. What you do with what happens… is what matters most.
Life called Mariam to re-invent herself multiple times, to persevere as well as to be creative in converting the seemingly negative into the positive gift life presented. As a result, she learned that struggle is the pathway to joy itself, helping us to come to know ourselves better and find the inner stillness from which peace is born.
As a Syrian American who grew up on the El Paso – Mexico border steeped in American society, she learned each struggle serves as a vehicle to help find the sameness in others as well as to celebrate our differences. These diverse experiences helped her to view life as a canvas, allowing her to be God’s paintbrush in bringing new realities into being. 
“A storyteller at heart, I believe that words ARE power, words are LIFE.”
Through her company, The Performance Communication Company, her team creates innovative, in-person, and virtual learning for those who want their voices to be heard in their professional lives. Having performed throughout her career
as both a classical pianist and opera singer, she brings a different view to her work with others as a communication strategist and delivery expert.
Mariam’s passion is guiding others into the expressive art of themselves to frame their brilliant ideas, passions, beliefs, and life's work and embrace the fullness of possibility as the reality in the workplace and world.
Mariam has spoken and or provided services to TEDx Houston, The Business Maker’s Show, Boeing, NASA, Shell, BP, Chevron, Sinopec, The Asian Chamber of Commerce, Asia Voice Radio, The University of Houston Wolff Center, and many other Fortune 500 Companies.
