Sarah Ashworth: Life Transformation Strategist (specialising in relationships and personal development).
Biggest professional achievement to date?
Finding the courage to leave a very successful corporate career, to follow my purpose, to help people through challenging times in their lives.
Best life advice ever received?
The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.
Which book has had the greatest influence on your life?
How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. This book started me on my journey. It has completely stood the test of time and even 60 years since it was first published, the principles are still being used by the current experts of our time.
If you could make one change to the world?
For mankind to treat each other individually as they would like to be treated themselves.
The most influential woman in your life & why?
Oprah Winfrey; a woman who did not let her past define her future but instead became one of the most influential women in the world.
Things happen for us, not to us; always look for the opportunity in the challenge.
“Change your thoughts, change your world”

100 Most Influential Women 2018
Grow Exeter Magazine launched the ‘100 Most Influential Women 2018’ in Exeter and the region in December 2017 and we received around 500 nominations for influential women from all walks of life; our panel was spoilt for choice and hard-pressed to select only 100 from the talented nominees that they viewed. The Launch of the ‘100 Most Influential Women’ awards in 2018 has perhaps even more value than in any other year as it was just 100 years ago that the first woman was granted the right to vote in the UK.
Women have truly shown that they can shine in any environment, whether that be in the boardroom, teaching our children, climbing mountains, navigating uncharted waters, they can do anything that they set their mind to and we can’t wait to celebrate our own talented 100.
Honouring women in our March edition of Grow Exeter fell in line with International Women’s Day on the 8th March and the 100 finalists have each been featured in this special edition. To see the 100 finalists individually featured, please grab a copy of our March edition by ordering through the link below. We will be publishing each woman online throughout March and April so keep an eye on our Facebook page or website for their stories.
A huge congratulations to everyone nominated and to the #100WomenExeter, you are all amazing!
