Episode 123: In the Know: How Sarah Benken Created an International Community of Like-Minded Women
Sarah Benken is passionate about supporting women, specifically high-achieving businesswomen that are overworked and lacking community with like-minded women. 𝑾𝒉𝒚? Because she has been there - in the wrong rooms, stretched thin, and feeling like I was alone on the journey.
As an accomplished Founder + CEO of 12 years, Sarah has built and scaled two brands internationally.

She has made it my mission to help women connect with a community that is centered around growth, development, championing, and sisterhood. Through the KNOW Women Global Membership and KNOW Book, she is providing space for dynamic female leaders to gather, collaborate, and be celebrated for their successes and hard work.
Sarah is active in her community. She teaches CEO classes to pregnant teens, works with women through ministries, and mentors many women throughout North America. She has always been enchanted by women who break the mold, even while working in male-dominated fields.
