New York: Concrete jungle where dreams are made of, and the place where Sabrina Sablosky, truly calls home. A born and raised New Yorker, she spent four years at Boston University, before moving to Brooklyn. Since graduating, she has become an incredibly successful content creator who has amassed thousands of followers across social media, as well as developing her own popular YouTube channel and inspirational Podcast Sync’d Up. Sabrina is a fiercely determined, intelligent and ambitious individual who could and would smash her way through every inch of that concrete jungle to make her dreams and yours come true.
‘I’ve always loved expressing myself and my passion for health and wellness.’ She tells the Atlantic Dispatch. It was never something she had intended to turn into a full-time job. However, having graduated from college in 2020, during the pandemic, her plans of working in product development at MAC cosmetics fell through. She did what she does best though. She innovated, didn’t let her head get down, and turned a negative into a positive. ‘I have ADHD, so during quarantine, I needed a creative outlet and decided that I’d start putting my energy toward being a full-time content creator and see where it went. It’s been a roller coaster, to say the least, but I’m here now and very grateful for my platforms.’
LITTLE WINK FROM THE UNIVERSE
Sync’d Up was created as an accumulation of my personal self-development and spiritual journey. Not to get “woo woo,” although that’s the basis of my content, as my connection to the Universe really strengthened, I wanted to share this experience and teach others how to develop a connection of their own.
“Sync’d” is shortened for “synchronicity,” which I describe as little winks from the Universe. When you’re thinking about someone and they call you minutes later, that’s a synchronicity. They’re little reminders and meaningful coincidences that you’re on the right path, you’re aligned with the Universe, and your energy is powerful.
As my platforms began to grow, I remember asking myself, “what do I want to be known for?” This question shifted everything for me. Through my spiritual practice and really developing that connection to myself and a power greater than me, I knew I wanted my content to be of service to others – but in a way that is authentic to me. As someone who is Gen Z, I think there’s a really cool opportunity to discuss topics like spirituality and self-development in a way that resonates with a younger audience (and older as well!)
During our chat with Sabrina, she said something that has stuck with me. I asked her: ‘How important is it to support women in business?’ Her answer. ‘You would never hear someone ask how important it is to support men in business – why would it even be considered to treat women differently? The world would be nothing and nowhere without women. Period.’
She’s right in every way. Why in this day and age are we still asking this question? It shouldn’t even be a question. Yet I still found the need to ask it. When you really look at the question, it’s actually incredibly patronising and condescending. We wouldn’t ask that question of men. Despite the fact, they are literally millions of women in business who could wipe the floor of any man, in terms of ability, work ethic and a whole lot more. I found it a really interesting and insightful response. It’s a way of answering that questions, that I had never heard before. But it is well and truly the right answer. This is a 24-year-old woman who knows her worth.
As it stands 42% of all U.S. businesses are owned by women (13 million). Women-owned businesses employ over 9.4 million workers. Women are three percentage points more likely to start a business than men. The top three motivations for women starting their own businesses are pursuing their passion, gaining financial independence, and increasing their flexibility. Gross receipts for women-owned employer firms increased by 51.9%from 2012 to 2019, while men-owned firms only rose 34.2%. It’s estimated that 849 women-owned businesses open every day. Since the early 2000s, women-owned companies have increased by 114%. In 2020, the average annual revenue for women-owned businesses was $330,226. I think it’s time we all adjusted our thinking and thought process towards women in business.
I GET TESTED A LOT WHICH IS A BLESSING IN DISGUISE
I’ve learned that there will always be something new to learn, new to heal, and new to grow from. I get tested a lot, which is a blessing in disguise because it forces us to grow and learn new lessons, getting us to the next level. Then once we reach the next level, there’s another test there and another thing to heal and grow from! It’s a never-ending journey, but it’s taught me how resilient and truly powerful I am.

WAKE PRAY AND SLAY EVERYDAY
The topics that Sabrina is bringing to the table, are relatable for so many, especially in this day in age. She puts it out there. Wears her heart on her sleeve. She is an incredibly level-headed, self-aware individual who is using her content to benefit the mental health and well-being of so many others. Her honesty in what she talks about is incredibly refreshing. Social media can often be guilty of giving us a false impression of real life. Sabrina openly discusses how she deals with her ADHD and some days are more of a struggle than others.
She’s not pretending to be anyone or anything else. She is building a community where people can come together in a safe and open space and share their life stories. She is from the school of wake, pray and slay each and every single day, and throughout her content she emphasises how we receive tests from the universe, and how they are the perfect opportunity to practice letting go, surrendering, and healing more deeply. She is pragmatic and knows this isn’t easy, especially when you’re going through a tough time. She shares her advice with her followers on how she deals with this, and what she does to reconnect with her magnetic self:
Emotional release: JOURNAL! Write how you’re feeling and don’t be afraid to express lower vibrational emotions. You gotta feel to heal baybay. Finish with 10 blessings in your life so you’re ending on a positive note.
Mental release: MEDITATE. Strengthening your mind is the best thing you can do for yourself. Find an uplifting meditation and fill yourself up with love, light, and a deeper connection to yourself and your body.
Physical release: MOVEMENT. Move your body to move your energy. This is the final step to really let all that stagnant, low vibrational energy OUT.
Be patient with yourself and take things one day at a time. If you’re feeling low, just focus on feeling a little better each day and repeat the mantra: “Everyday, in every way, I am getting better and better.”
You don’t need to feel 100% overnight, just focus on feeling 1% better each day
Prioritize you, your energy, your future, your wellbeing, your JOY…and everything else will fall into place.
BUILD YOUR DISCIPLINE
The best piece of advice I’ve ever received…that’s tough. Something that’s always stuck with me is to approach and treat everyone as if they’re grieving. Meaning you truly never know what someone is going through and to always offer grace and compassion. Advice that I would give is to build your discipline because it is one of the greatest skills you can develop. It breeds consistency and repetition which are vital if you want to succeed in anything you do, whether that’s being a content creator, podcast host, creative director, or financial advisor.
As our chat with Sabrina, comes to an end it’s clear to see, not only how ambitious and positive she is, but more importantly, how level-headed she is. She is forthright, intelligent, and creative, and family and friends are everything to her. She also works incredibly hard and has created a platform for thousands of people that genuinely cares for them. Her positive energy is palpable and you can’t help but be influenced by her aura. It takes someone special to turn a negative into a positive and when the pandemic hit, she could have crumbled, but she made the most of the situation and has flourished and she continues to do so, each and every day bayyybayy.
