Dr. Sabrina Starling

Disrupting the traditional “hustle” culture in entrepreneurship.

About Dr. Sabrina Starling

Entrepreneurship is in crisis. Dr. Sabrina’s latest research reveals almost 9 out of 10 entrepreneurs are experiencing symptoms of burnout, struggling to get through each week, laying awake at night worrying about payroll, employee issues, and the endless list of things needing your attention. We are two times more likely than the general population to suffer depression, 70% more likely to experience addiction and our divorce rate is 5 to 10 times higher than the general population.

Grinding it out is grinding us up!

YET, while all this is going on, entrepreneurs are responsible for two-thirds of net new jobs and 44% of US economic activity. 

We are amazing! 

And, Dr. Sabrina can’t help but wonder: How much more are we capable of when we are thriving? 

Dr. Sabrina’s latest research with over 225 entrepreneurs reveals critical gaps in our mindset and our business systems that keep us working unnecessarily hard, sacrificing our health and important relationships all for the sake of our businesses.

Dr. Sabrina brings forward the missing solution. The Tap the Potential Solution™ is the step-by-step guide to designing your growing business to give you more time for what matters most and more money in your bank account than ever. 

Dr. Sabrina Starling is the international best-selling author of How to Hire the Best: The Entrepreneur’s Ultimate Guide to Attracting Top Performing Team Members and The 4 Week Vacation®: The Entrepreneur's Ultimate Guide to Taking Your Life Back from Your Business.  Named a Top 50 Entrepreneur to Watch in 2022 by Apple News for her mission to disrupt traditional “hustle” culture in entrepreneurship, Dr. Sabrina and her team at Tap the Potential coach entrepreneurs through business transformations that give them freedom to take 4 Week Vacations while their businesses grow profitably in their absence. 

Although sipping margaritas on the beach is what most envision when thinking of a 4 Week Vacation, the numerous benefits of fully unplugging from the business start with simple steps to set healthier boundaries in the business, such as leaving work at 5, turning off your phone, going for a walk and spending time with your family. 

Dr. Sabrina’s message of small steps forward, taken in a consistent direction lead to big change over time, make a 4 Week Vacation and its numerous benefits for the entrepreneur, team and company accessible to entrepreneurs everywhere.

Countless ‘Take-Aways’ for Small Business Owners.

Let me be very clear about this… Dr. Starling is the number one, most remarkable business coach I’ve ever witnessed, known or worked with. I know hundreds of coaches and have personally worked with a dozen or so coaches that I have the highest regard for, but Sabrina (or The Doc, as I call her), is the world’s best.The reason she is so extraordinary is because she genuinely cares more about small business owners than anyone else. So much so, that at times I have seen her care for the business owner’s success, growth and happiness even more than the business owner themselves. I didn’t even think that was possible! But The Doc doesn’t stop there. She understands the complexities of the psychology of business, which is 95% of what it takes to succeed in small business. Added to that is the depth of experience she has from working with so many business owners over the years. She brings a combination of talent, experience and caring that I rarely see.When Dr. Sabrina is speaking, her straightforward, tell-itlike-it-is manner, combined with an approachable, warm personality, draws audience members in. She deeply understands the mindset of the audience and connects with them where they are, while providing easy to implement strategies, tools, and resources to move them forward. I can only rave about the countless ‘take-aways’ she provides.I can’t recommend her more highly
