“You’re amazing Sabrina Polakoff! It is an absolute privilege having you as a mentor!
You’re always happy to help, you have a fresh pair of eyes, you share great expertise, you’re helpful with new ideas, you create more structure in my muddled and windswept head.
But the thing I like the most, after a meeting with you, I have so much more energy and it feels like I can lift the world with one hand. Thank you so much! 🙌🏼”

“Sabrina worked closely with us at Mindbody to grow The Little Gym franchise and each franchisee’s revenue. She’s an amazing partner, all around good person, and one of the deepest strategic thinkers that I’ve worked with. She simultaneously thinks in years, quarters, and months; which is really rare for most leaders. I see her as a very flexible leader with strong business and leader fundamentals, who could add value to any industry, in any geography.”

Sabrina brings a unique blend of marketing, operational and network management skills and can build on her multi-cultural background to develop solutions that work across geographies.
She is a hard-working and very committed professional who can be relied upon and takes charge. She has risen to the occasion during Covid in helping the entire network navigate this period of turbulence, uncertainty and accelerated change.

“The true test of leadership is how well you function in a crisis” – Brian Tracy
When the global pandemic began in early March 2020 for most of the world, Sabrina leaped into action and took a business that relied on face-to-face, customer interactions to one that could also be conducted online. Sabrina was able to lead a franchise network throughout Europe to where they could continue to provide an exceptional product while remaining front and center with their customers. Due to the complexity of various government rules and mandates in different countries, Sabrina was able to collaborate with local business owners to create operational standards vital for the re-opening each business. Collaboration exists when there is a proven track record of success and through trust. Both are a quality and characteristic Sabrina exemplifies.
