Sophia first joined us Friday night at the George Urban Mansion for a Meet and Greet mixer, where I first had the opportunity to meet her.

Then on Saturday, she shared with the professional group of women the 5 Traits of Highly Successful Women.


1. Like Yourself, believe in your self-worth
2. Be humble. You can't make it by yourself. Lift others as you climb!
3. Don't participate in gossip/slander of other women. Uplift and inspire them.
4. Don't look at people as seasonal - see people as an investment. Successful people don't cut what they can they untie.
5. Successful women sponsor other women.

Today I had the pleasure of interviewing Sophia on the air and learning even more! Listen to our conversation here:
