Sarah Furuya Coaching: Are you ready? February is the New January  (2018/2019) 

Sarah Furuya Coaching introduces for the 2nd year: Ive-got-your-back

A 12 month coaching programme. 1:1. You and me. Let’s reset the year, walk through the year together, and step over the threshold of 2019 with a year of coaching work and inquiry driving you. It’ll be so sweet. Imagine investing in yourself now and this time next year being clear, confident and motivated and STILL having another month of coaching support for your New Year Goals. YES. Every time I have invested in the support and work I need to support myself and my business, I have experienced growth, joy and transformation. AND it was tough without. I am making a huge investment in myself this year to ‘sharpen the coaching saw’. It will be a stretch, but I KNOW it’s worth it. All the pennies.

Here is the link for more information:

Registration and applications open in January (look out for dates!), with early bird bonus special, and registration closes January 31st. We kick off with first coaching sessions in February and I am strictly limiting the numbers. I am genuinely excited. Want to get on the very special waiting list? Email and make sure you mention you are a FEW member.

FEW members receive special bonuses!

When Emi Takemura graduated, the internet pretty much didn’t exist, and in her first job there was only one computer, and one email address. So how have we gone from there, to the current situation of more and more powerful computers and an explosion in connectivity? That’s the question the Emi gave FEW members and […]

How I Got Here: Alicia Narusé

After leaving my home town of Taipei, Taiwan, to study aboard in the United States at age 10, I received an American education from middle school all the way to university. Since I was a child, I was talented in sketching and painting. I didn’t know then I would use my art skills to make […]

Strategic Partner Spotlight: Megumi Moss, Founder and CEO, Carefinder

I joined FEW 4 years ago, around the same time I started my company CareFinder, a bilingual babysitter matching site. CareFinder aims to support working women and families in Japan. CareFinder’s mission is similar to FEW’s. Four years ago, when I left my job to start CareFinder, I needed support as I was embarking on […]
