We had the good fortune of connecting with Sara Acevedo and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sara, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?
When I first started styling, I was on the phone and working 24/7 and I think that’s appropriate when you’re trying to break into something; you can’t approach it as a hobby. In order to get over barriers, you’ve got to operate at a certain speed. But once you’ve grooved in, so to speak, you can’t really continue to do that on a forever basis. It’s not healthy mentally or spiritually. So I have become a more whole person after many years of hard work. I think over time you learn which jobs are worth it and who are the right clients for you, etc. and things become easier. If that isn’t happening, you need to find out what you’re doing wrong and learn how to fix it, you should be ascending and becoming more competent through experience.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I do wardrobe styling; which helps support other artists and brands, through their image so they can focus on their message. In one sentence, I would say that’s a great description of what I do. Probably my biggest lesson in success is to find where I fit in and what works best through personal observation, rather than letting the media or pop culture tell me what my path and style should be.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I have a great support group; friends, family and social groups who help me. All play a huge part in my success!
