Sara Kolata is an architect and entrepreneur whose passion is raising the financial well being of architects through digital transformation.  Listen to JJRR 91 as Sara shares how her discovery of humanitarian design initially brought her to Guatemala and inspired her to start a charity there.  Yet after a few hard years managing razor thin budgets and not being able to pay herself, Sara knew the only way to grow and prosper for her was through entrepreneurship.  Taking time out to self-educate on business and digital marketing, Sara now helps other architects with their own digital transformations.
