Ep. 102 – Sarah Knight – Bestselling Anti-Guru on Not Giving a F*ck

Share

  

Sarah Knight is the internationally bestselling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck, which has been translated into more than twenty languages and has hit bestseller lists all over the world, including in the US, Canada, England, Germany, Italy, and Poland. The sequel, Get Your Sh*t Together—a continuation of her crusade to promote “mental decluttering”—was on the New York Times bestseller list for twelve weeks and is also being published worldwide.

In 2017, she delivered a TEDx talk called “The Magic of Not Giving a F*ck” at TEDxCoconutGrove in Miami, Florida, which has now been viewed more than 3 million times.


And in November 2017, the third book in the “No F*cks Given Guides” series—You Do You: How to Be Who You Are and Use What You’ve Got to Get What You Want—was published in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand, with other countries to follow.

As a senior editor with several major publishing houses in New York, for fifteen years Knight worked with authors such as Jessica Knoll, Gillian Flynn, Chris Cleave, Jen Kirkman, Emily Nagoski (future guest on the show), Jay Rayner, James Lee Burke, and many more. In 2015, she left corporate life behind and moved with her husband from Brooklyn to the Dominican Republic. She no longer gives a f*ck about winter.

I invited Sarah to be on the podcast after listening to her three books on Audible. Not only does Sarah have her books available on Audible she also narrated them. Her style drew me right in. While at times listening I found myself getting annoyed at her message. Ultimately, I realized my annoyance was because she was completely right and it was something I needed to examine in my own life.

I was honored when she said yes to being on the podcast and hope you enjoy our conversation and honestly, if you need a life kick in the ass this book series will help you get on track and give you permission to be your authentic self, without losing all the people you love and totally messing up your life in the process. Enjoy our episode.

    • Before, during, during, and after. Hours of work, lessons learned, and more hours of work. Restoration Bungalow continues with one more room nearly finished. The moment I saw the house I was inspired to restore it back to its original beauty, one room at a time.  Tons of credit to Forest for all his hard work! Classic colors, furniture, and fixtures. Half the fun is the research and the rest is seeing the vision executed!! All that’s left is artwork and new bedding.

    • Quiet night in a quiet town living a quiet life.
    • Making a house... a home. Everyday I’m filled with gratitude.

    • Seriously pinching myself while settling into my new home. Being able to walk out my backdoor into a canyon full of deer and jack rabbits, the dogs being able to run free the whole time, and quiet country life waiting when I get home. It’s hard to believe this is life.
.
2019 is off to a pretty good start! First day of work at my new job is Monday and spending these last couple days working away on the house and taking the dogs into the mountains behind our house.

    • This year I got the ultimate gift, on Friday I was handed the keys 🔑 to my new house.
.
We spent the weekend starting to bring her back to her original 1920’s charm. Christmas we woke up in the  house, drank coffee, opened presents, and took a hike out the back door up into the canyon behind the house. I already love being back in a tiny town you’ve never heard of. People have stopped by, given us cookies, fudge, and chocolates. Heard stories of previous families who lived in the house and a few nuggets of the property history.
.
Beyond excited for the next chapter of life. It’s been a crazy last month and a half. A dream job came to me, bought a house, and now in the process of moving and bringing this little beauty back to life.
.
The lesson learned in the last couple months is - trust life has a plan for you - things happen for a reason - and life is full of good people.
