Diving into Personal Branding

Welcome to SarahHaselkorn.com and thank you for taking a look at my site! I will be using this as a forum for sharing my thoughts on entrepreneurship, startups, and early-stage investments - my first foray into the world of personal branding. I've been involved in entrepreneurial endeavors since I was a kid - selling lemonade, crafts, and anything I could think of out of the back driveway. I really hit the ground running with startups during my sophomore year of college when I left school to work with the two cofounders of a mobile analytics company in Boston called Media Armor. Eric and Liz taught me what it meant to show passion through business, and that really fueled my entrepreneurship.

When I left Boston, I began to raise money to open a fast-casual restaurant near campus in St. Louis. That fall I launched Green Bean, a sustainable salad shop that became the first true venture that I founded. For two years I learned the ins and outs of running a brick-and-mortar business, and dealt with the struggles that come up in that industry.

In May, I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a degree in Systems Science and a minor in Entrepreneurship, and began a rotational management program at Anheuser-Busch InBev. I've been traveling around the country training and doing projects within every part of the business, from supply to sales to IT support. The corporate perspective has certainly increased and enhanced my business knowledge.
