We had the good fortune of connecting with Sarah Lucky and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sarah, how do you think about risk?
In order to grow personally and professionally in life, we must all take risks and step out of our comfort zones. I am constantly taking a risk in my career. When you work freelance, basically working for yourself, you are constantly at risk of not making money or not having a job. Money and jobs are never guaranteed. Yet, I couldn’t imagine living any other way. I strive to live a life full of joy, and the only way to do that is to pursue things that really make you happy. Life without risk is not a life worth living.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I have always wanted to do something creative in my life. Ever since high school, I have wanted to be a film editor. It feeds into my two favorite things, being creative and puzzle solving. The path to becoming an editor wasn’t easy, and it is still a constant grind to keep moving up and in the direction I want my career to go. There are people who will help you along the way and some that will not. The important thing is to always believe in yourself. If you don’t, who will? Being confident in your skills and your talents is key. The challenge is not to listen to the naysayers. That is one thing that I am really good at. I don’t like when someone doubts my ability to do anything. My passion for baking and editing came together during the beginning of covid, when I wanted to cheer up friends and family that were stuck at home. I started a baking show and delivered the treats all over Los Angeles and even shipped them all over the country. It made me happy to make other people happy. I have a incessant desire to create bliss. My brand is all about working hard to do what makes you happy, because life sucks when you are doing something you hate. Boop.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would start our day off with a little workout at the Reebok Lab in west hollywood. The owner Yumi Lee is literally the best coach you could ask for, and when you work out there you are family. After we got our workout in we would need to get some coffee and breakfast at GGET (Go Get Em Tiger). One of my favorite coffee spots in Los Angeles. The place and the people are awesome. A place that I have been going to since I was little is the Farmer’s Market, and a trip to LA would not be complete without a coffee and donut from Bob’s Donuts. It’s a LA staple. A definite hang out spot for me day or night is Zinque on Melrose. It has great coffee, breakfast, lunch, happy hour, wine, dinner, you name it! The people watching is pretty great too. I love the vibe here, and you can find me hanging out there on the regular. There are so many spots to hit in LA that you really can’t go wrong. The one thing I know for sure is we would be eating and drinking a lot.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I have to start off by saying I have always loved Martha Stewart. She has been an inspiration to me. I would have to say that my friends and family are a constant motivation for me to be successful. Baking is something that makes me very happy, but a big part of the reason I bake is to bring happiness to others. I also have to give credit to my dad. Even though he passed about 20 years ago, I still want to make him proud.
