WELCOME TO THE GOLDEN LENS, IN DEPTH CONVERSATIONS WITH FOUNDERS WHO WORK AT THE INTERSECTION OF THEIR INTUITION AND THEIR INTELLECT.
I hope you will recognize yourself in the women featured here. I hope their stories encourage you to keep expanding, to stay curious and agile in pursuit of your own dreams. Sophie Jones Wright, breathwork healer and business guide shares her story, of transformation and trust.
Welcome Sophie, tell us about yourself.
Where do you live?
What made you take the leap into entrepreneurship—tell us about the “why” behind your business?
Gosh, I’ve had an interesting life and the springboard for me getting into business was coming home from being humanly trafficked by a man in my early 20’s. The universe put a mentor in my life and I started studying personal development and business, not long after that, I got my real estate license and the 5 companies later I think it’s safe to say I love entrepreneurship!
What has been your proudest moment?
I’ve had a lot. That’s the cool thing about life or business you are always growing so cool shit keeps happening. Another answer would be I have too many to narrow down to just one.
What's Something That You're Still Working On When It Comes To Understanding Yourself?
Trusting myself. When you want to succeed at the highest level you subscribe to different mentors and programs that might not 100% align with you. I’m learning to take what works for me and leave the rest!
Where do you find inspiration, especially on the days you’re not feeling it?
I find inspiration in people. I love being a part of someone's transformation so it’s easier to show up when I know other people are involved.
Tell us about your experience having a virtual shoot with Lisa and what led you to hire a photographer?
Lisa was warm and funny. I so appreciated that because I find getting my pictures taken is a vulnerable experience.
What was your favorite part of the process?
I would say planning and co-collaboration with Lisa.
If you could send your younger self a tweet, what would it say?
Things are going to be better than you can imagine.
