Description

What if you only had five years to live? How would you show up differently at work and in your personal life? These were questions that Sarah Jones Simmer, CEO of weight care startup Found and a former executive at Bumble, faced after a May 2020 diagnosis of stage 3 breast cancer—and a potential worst-case prognosis from a doctor. Now one-year cancer-free, the experience fundamentally changed how she lives her life today. In this episode, Sarah talks with Shine’s co-founders Marah and Naomi about reprioritizing joy and gratitude in her life, her approach to building workplaces where people can show up authentically, and how vulnerability can help us all conquer mental health stigma.
