“Sara is the secret ingredient that you’ve been searching for… Her ability to synthesize your thoughts and turn them into written word is incredible. It’s as if everything you’ve wanted to say suddenly appears – and it reads even better than it sounded in your head. In addition, her ability to lead a project like a seasoned pro makes the things you’ve been “hoping to do” finally happen. Sara’s impact on my business has been revolutionary and will benefit my operations for years to come. If you’re tired of just succeeding and really want to blow the doors off, you need to get Sara on your team ASAP!”

“Sara’s support and guidance early on in the editing and development process was highly impactful. She helped me own my story and my unique voice in a way I never thought possible. She believed in me, even though I felt like my first (and possibly only) book was a bit rough around the edges. I’m thankful to call her a great friend for life.”

“Sara not only did a great job editing my book but she educated me in the process. She pointed out where I had issues and gave sound suggestions to resolve them. I highly recommend her to all who are serious about their work.”

“Sara Stibitz was a godsend as the editor for my book. I knew that I wanted to work with her from the moment we “met” on Skype. We instantly clicked and I knew deep down that I could trust her with my tender manuscript (and my own heart… authors know what I mean here).
My greatest hope was that she would represent the voice and thoughts of the reader. I knew that I had something to share and it all made perfect sense to me. But if I lost my reader at some point, then it didn’t matter what I had to say – they weren’t going to get that far.
Sara was absolutely brilliant for this. She took everything in my manuscript and intuitively felt that a reorder of the themes would help people travel through their journey with my book. Her extensive experience working with authors shone through; she didn’t want to force her thoughts onto me and was more than willing to work with the manuscript any way that felt good to me.
I really trusted her and asked her to follow through with her intuition. And she was absolutely right. Her re-order brought my content to life and made my book beautifully readable and still honoured its content and my intention.
To this day, I get emails from people who are reading my book for the second time… Others who keep it by their bedside and just open it to parts that they need to read in that moment.
I am eternally thankful for Sara’s help in crafting my book. It was truly a combined and beautiful effort… and as much as Sara contributed to the editing process (which was a lot), the resulting book still sounded like me. Even my friends say that they can sit down with my book if they are missing me and it feels just like chatting with me over a cup of tea.
So, thank you Sara, from the bottom of my heart. I look forward to working with her again in the future and highly recommend her to anyone – especially if you are particularly attached to the spirit of your work and you need someone you can trust.”

“Despite having authored a book, writing does not come easy to me. I do a good job of coming up with ideas, but can’t ever seem to get them on paper in a way that does them justice. Fortunately for me, I can call Sara Stibitz. While Sara is amazing at adding better structure to words I have already written, she has been a game changer for me when I can’t even get that far. I can pick up the phone and share my ideas and then she produces an incredible finished product that doesn’t compromise my message or tone. I highly recommend (and have many times) Sara for all your writing and editing needs.”
Author of Networking is Not Working, founder of CADRE
“Sara has a gift for organizing (and reorganizing) a multitude of ideas thrown onto the page and transforming them into a coherent stream of chapters and sections which readers can understand and be moved by. Sara, thank you for taking on this passion project of mine amidst another much larger opportunity for your editing career with Penguin Portfolio. That you were able to shape this book into what it is today on such a limited time and budget is a testament to your outstanding skill set. After our first email, I knew I picked my editor correctly.”
Author ofSustainable Business in Iowa and Stress-Free Sustainability, founder of Eco-fluence
“Sara has the most unusual ability to take the words someone else has written, hone and refine them in the author’s voice, and make cohesive chapters from disparate parts. Working with Sara on The Money Savvy Student was a blessing, as she added a layer of reliability (and perfectionism) between myself and the publisher. I highly.”
“I highly recommend Sara Stibitz as a writer…I found her writing to be authentic, rich with detail, and engaging with a touch of humor. She really knows how to draw the reader into life’s experiences – whether they are her own or someone else’s. Her words exude compassion, empathy, and humility about whatever subject or experience she is writing about…she meets the deadline, keeps within the word count, our proofreader makes very few edits…she delicately intertwined the theme of each issue into the articles.”
