The Motherhood Village Podcast

Nov 11, 2022

Sarah Maynard is the founder and CEO of THE START EFFECT. She helps people understand the impact the digital world has on their offline lives and helps them find balance between online and unplugged so that they can live a safe, healthy, and intentional life in both worlds.

Sarah is a passionate storyteller and lifelong learner. She has worked with kids for almost 20 years and she is a children’s book writer and illustrator and digital marketing communications strategist. Her big current project is helping teens become published authors and teaching them to use digital media to their benefit.

In this episode, Sarah and I discuss:

  • How to manage being online without burning out.
  • What we should, and shouldn't, be sharing online.
  • How to find balance between being online and unplugged for yourself and your family. 
  • Ways to get your kids to talk about what they are doing online.
  • The positives and negatives of being online.
  • How to manage your digital presence so it helps create the best, truest impression of you.
  • How to prepare our children to navigate cyber space in a safe, healthy, and beneficial way.
