Emery and Sarah Meeks are on the show, the founders of Sarah’s Eats and Sweets based in Petaluma, CA, in the Sonoma County Wine Country.
I met the two of them back at the beginning of the year, stopping by to try their new shop. I was instantly won over by their welcoming friendship, and of course their food.
Sarah’s Eats and Sweets is part cafe, part bake shop, with a focus on locally sourced ingredients, in-house preparations, original recipes, and most notably, a welcoming experience that treats everyone as a friend and family. Also, this shop has the brilliance of a classically trained chef and the warmth and experience of a master relationship builder.
Sarah and Emery have created something special, for them and their community. That’s why I wanted to talk to them. They’re a great example of starting something with meaning, while becoming part of the community they live and work within.
So many times we hear guests on shows that are changing the world with their nonprofit, or a new idea, and so on. Those are amazing stories. But great stories and change also happen at the community level, around the corner, in a shop. That’s Sarah’s. They’re making great food, supporting other small businesses, and helping their community prosper. All while creating a life they love.
And as Emery mentioned to me, if you love what you do, you won’t work a day in your life…
