Hi, I’m Sarah Peck. I’m the founder of Startup Parent, and I write about how people work and why we do the things we do.

In my work, I look at the fundamentals of psychology, behavior, habits, and ask questions about the nature of our existence. Most of my writing on this blog is personal: I use myself as a guinea pig to test new ways of building habits, learning, and growing. There’s a lot of noise out there about supposed best practices, but I’m interested in what actually works, and why. For that reason, I strive to write about the entire picture, including the failures, mistakes, human quirks, and lessons learned.

If you’d like to join me in conversation, you can sign up for my newsletter. My writing touches on leadership, business, habits, and how to set up a life that allows for perpetual learning. I’m constantly experimenting in my own life and sharing the results on this blog, as a life out loud, as part of my own learning. I’ve met some of my now closest friends and mentors through blogging, and I love being able to stay in touch this way.

Other fun facts: I host a weekly podcast on startups and parenting, I’m an open water swimmer, and I’m trained as a yoga teacher.
