About us

We are Tech Empowered. We specialize in Content creation and website development. When you work with us, you are not just a client, you are our partner and we believe in building trusting and meaningful relationships.


I loved working with Sara and Yoshie. They were great at listening to my rough ideas and turning that into a beautiful website that has exceeded my expectations. The color theme perfectly matches my brand and compliments my photography editing style. Sara was able to capture in words the feel I wanted for my site and Yoshie was so patient and helpful with teaching me how to take care of my website behind the scenes. They are a great team and I would recommend Tech Empowered to any entrepreneur wanting excellent customer service and a beautiful website that is personalized to fit their wants and needs.

Hi! We are so happy you’re here.

We are Sara Beth Wald and Yoshie Barnett. Sara and I have been friends for… I don’t even know how many years! We started out as coworkers in an office setting, but remained good friends long after life took us both in different directions. Sara and I have supported each other through some crazy life transitions, including divorce, single parenthood, remarriage, blended families, and, most recently, starting our own at-home businesses.

We know what it feels like to have a passion and a vision

but absolutely no idea how to bring those two things together in a meaningful, profitable way. Sara and I share an interest in helping others, and know a thing or two about letting our desire to help interfere with our profits. The good news is, we’ve learned through lots of trial and error that you can, in fact, do both!

We’ve discovered that if you can learn how to make an income doing what you love, you’ll end up helping more people than you ever could have otherwise. Because, let’s face it, money matters. We all need to, you know, eat and stuff. And pay the bills. And buy endless pairs of soccer cleats (or basketball shoes, or whatever… Why do kids need so many stinkin’ shoes??).

Not a mom? Well, there’s still bills to pay, and dreams to chase. Am I right?

Long story short, Sara and I were chugging along in our respective business ventures, when one day it just occurred to us, why weren’t we working together? By this time, we both knew we wanted to dedicate our work to helping women succeed in business. And we’d collected quite a bit more knowledge than we’d had starting out. Thus, over tea in my kitchen,

Tech Empowered was born.

Sara Beth Wald is my professional name, but you can just call me Sara. I’ve always had a heart for helping others, so I started out my career as a social worker. It didn’t take me long to realize that what I really wanted to do was write, always and forever. I went back to school to earn my master’s degree in journalism. Since then, I’ve worked as an editor or writer in academia, the media, and the corporate sector. I’ve also done my fair share of freelance journalism, and published a weekly column in two rural newspapers for eight and a half years. In 2018, inspired by my own complicated experiences in the ups and downs of interpersonal relationships, and hungry for a creative outlet, I launched a blog called Redefining Love, which teaches people how to set boundaries and hold themselves and others accountable with love. And in 2019, I took my newspaper column The Sara Beth Times online, as well as started my freelance Content Writing business, Content Empowered. When I’m not typing feverishly, I’m loving my life as a mom of two active boys and laughing with my sexy wildland firefighter husband. I don’t really have spare time, but when I pretend to, I love reading, painting, and hiking (although most of my “hikes” are just around the neighborhood).

“The lotus flower blooms most beautifully from the deepest and thickest mud.” ~Buddhist Proverb

Just like the lotus flower, I believe that we can learn and grow through unknown times and find beauty and strength in our lives.

I am a Multipotentialite and have experiences in IT, Business Management, Project Management, Operational Management, Website Development and Maintenance, Accounting, Translation (Japanese – English) and energy healing.

In 2019, I started Lotus Flower Journeys and now offer Distance ReikiIntuitive Guidance, and Tech Empowered services to both English and Japanese speaking people. I focus on the details of what people need and can customize my services to meet those needs. Currently, I am studying to be a Certified NLP Practitioner in order to serve my clients at a higher level.

Of all the many roles I play, my most important job is being a mom to my amazing son. My dear husband and I love traveling and gourmet cooking.
