Sabrina Victoria is the owner and operator of Human Better 365 a human transformation company focusing on time management and organization within businesses and the family dynamic. In short, she specializes in creating absolute masterpieces out of complete chaos.
As an empath and serial people pleaser, she was always looking for the solution to everyone’s problems, and that attribute eventually became the catalyst for her own survival.
Sabrina was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago.
At the age of 20, she became a single mom which led her down a whirlwind of struggles and challenges. Not only was she fighting off an identity of what it meant to be a single mother, but she was also broke.
So desperate for attention she fell into an extremely toxic relationship with a man who took her on the most emotional roller coaster her life. Using sexual and financial abuse to exploit her dreams.
With no where else to turn she dove head first into her partners company, expanding it from a small office in her townhouse to 5 offices in 4 different states. Sabrina ran every single aspect of that company, completely consumed by work day and night. Although she knew this was not her passion, she loved to work, loved to build and loved to create.
Stumbling upon the world of personal development in 2008, Sabrina went all in.

In 2012 Sabrina started her first YouTube channel and eventually blog called pureaspirations, focusing on health and fitness and started to acquire a small cash flow from individuals seeking health advice.
Soon after she set up a plan to leave her relationship and started 3 online business that generated over $50,000 over 4 years. She left that relationship with her son, their clothes and her bicycle...starting all over again with a mattress on the floor. Her ex said she would never make it and mocked that she would be living behind a dumpster in a cardboard box within 6 months. 
At this same time Sabrina opened her first Airbnb, renting out 2 bedrooms in her home to help pay for the rent. She also continued to make money by pushing forward with eBay, OfferUp and Fiverr. 
In 2018 she started Nation of Diamonds, a women’s mentoring program which eventually was renamed Human Better 365 along with a podcast completely dedicated towards time management and mental and emotional health.

In 2021 she launched The 21 Day No Alcohol Challenge that takes place for the first 21 days of every month and she officially became an author when she published The 21 Day No Alcohol Challenge book. Around that same time Sabrina launched her first Amazon Store selling abuse record keeping journals, inner child work journals, regular journals along with her books. Following her calling of giving back, she eventually launched another podcast called Her Talk Show, based on one questions, 'What do you know, that everyone needs to know?'.
