Well...if you enjoy straight talk, short-windedness, depth, and humor, we're off to a good start.
My mission and what I stand for
I stand for the advancement of women in the world.
I aim to help women discover and connect with the extraordinary creative power that is inherent in them.
I’m on a mission to help women build businesses that bring them high levels of prosperity and fulfillment.
I love to inspire women to fearlessly create the life of their dreams without apology.
But I should probably do the whole biography bit and share some of my background with you. So here goes - starting with an image of Vienna, Austria where I was born.
From Austria to South Africa
I was born to very young parents. My father dreamed of sunshine and opportunity so we immigrated to South Africa when I was seven.
At 23, I realized my dream of opening my own store. As a trained jewelry designer and manufacturer I built my business into a successful enterprise while raising my two young kids. Six years in I went through an awful divorce and lost everything leaving me and my young kids having to rely on strangers for shelter while I worked to rebuild.
That experience taught me many valuable lessons that have served me and my clients very well ever since.
After my children left home, I sold everything in South Africa, traveled for a while, and finally settled in San Diego in 2002 where I became a licensed financial advisor and added divorce financial planning (C.D.F.A.) and mediation certifications to my skill-set.
I built a coaching practice helping women manage the mental, emotional and practical aspects of navigating their life transitions which included divorce and career change.
It’s during this time that I published my book ‘WAKE UP your life! A woman’s guide to real personal power’. Click HERE to learn more.
New business in the USA
After going through a second (unwanted) divorce, I took a few years off to add new skills (internet marketing, web development, IT), and do more personal growth work. I learned how to truly master the inner 'game' of life. As a result, I'm able to see very quickly what my clients' true issues are and how to solve them.
During this break I wrote a second book, continued to coach a handful of private clients, and became a volunteer C.A.S.A (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for children in the foster care system.
From West to East Coast
I eventually left San Diego and moved to Oregon where I turned my love of technology into a business helping clients with their computers, software, and websites. See it at Tech Savvy Sofia.
Not long after my grandson was born I moved to Knoxville, TN to be near my only family in the US. Once there I felt a strong calling to reboot my coaching practice and do what I love most – teach women how to create fulfilling, thriving businesses that allow them to share their gifts with the world and make an impact.
My natural ability to simplify anything and put it into easy-to-understand language and action steps is what you could call my 'superpower'.
We tend to make life a lot more complicated than it needs to be. It only takes a few mindset shifts and some practical tweaks to transform your life. I would be thrilled and honored to help you do just that!
