Social media may have catapulted her to fame, but Instagram’s favourite foodie credits good old-fashioned hard work for her success.

Patience was once seen as a virtue, but that was before social media could quite literally make your career overnight. Someone who knows all about the power it wields is Sarah Glover – the Instagram foodie sensation with enough followers (46,700 to be exact) to push her firmly into the influencer domain. While for many of us she arose from nowhere, Sarah is the first to admit her success was far from instant – crediting patience, persistence and good old-fashioned hard work as key to her success.

Her enviable feed might feature a dreamy concoction of creative dishes roasting on open fires and ‘surfaris’, but she tells Future Women she’s “been cheffing since I was 16 and I’m 35 now”. Her resume attests to that, beginning with stints at famed kitchens like Franklin in Hobart before developing the outdoor aesthetic for which she is now known. Her social media presence has allowed her to launch a catering business on the side (@thewild_kitchen), and self-publish her first book Wild, but there’s so much more to her triumphs.
