With nearly 20 years of experience as a middle school science teacher, I'm an expert in helping people get started with their projects and seeing them to completion. In fact, if you factor in the years of experience that come with being the first-born sibling and bossing around two younger brothers, I have over 40 years of experience! FosterForward was created to couple this lifelong practice with the desire I have to lift the weight of unfinished business off all of our shoulders.
I’m Sara Foster, and I am a Productivity and Accountability Coach who will help YOU complete your neglected projects.
In my own life, in instances where I have set goals, timelines for action steps, and found ways to hold myself accountable, I have been successful. I’ve been known to accomplish some really big things.
Earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Stanford University while training as a member of the Cross-Country and Track teams.
Expanded my horizons by living and working in Chile for two years.
Earned a Master’s Degree from the University of Colorado while working full-time.
Traveled to all seven continents.
Completed a historical 100 mile run called the Leadville 100.
Followed my heart and risked my livelihood by starting a new business.
Most of these accomplishments could not have happened without passion, but they also required structure and accountability checkpoints to guide my forward progress. I naturally tend to hold myself accountable, but I’ve also employed accountability strategies along the way as well as hired coaches who have guided me in my training for the ultra distance races and in discovering and building my dream business respectively.
Full disclosure -- In my own home, I’ve stopped noticing the unfinished home improvement projects that have been underway for years. I feel overwhelmed by the files of disorganized photos and unread emails on my computer, and I get frustrated with myself for not keeping up with them as they’ve happened. I’ve failed in these instances because I never set a clear goal for action. I haven’t taken the time to analyze the projects and break them into actionable steps. And I certainly haven’t set up an accountability system complete with timelines. Yep, I confess, when I haven’t had structures in place I’ve been known to let things slip through the cracks.
Because we are not all wired the same way when it comes to motivation and because our personal productivity ebbs and flows, FosterForward was created with customization in mind. Our accountability check-ins will benefit you, even if you are a highly disciplined and motivated person because research has shown that the likelihood of meeting a goal increases by participating in ongoing progress meetings. If you lie on the other side of the spectrum and happen to be someone who is resisting forward motion or is blocked for one reason or another, you will give me a greater opportunity to apply my expertise gathered during my decades as an educator. Through the years, I’ve sharpened my motivation and persuasion skills in order to target my most unmotivated students. Working together, you and I will accomplish more than you might be able to imagine. FosterForward is your solution.
I know how wonderful it feels to complete a project, and I want you to feel that way too!
