Sonya is an award-winning entrepreneur, founder of the Like Minded Females network (@LMFnetwork), diversity business coach, BBC radio host (everyday side hustle) and author (unprepared to entrepreneur). Sonya shares with Sarah how some difficult experiences and a lack of support network early in her career prompted her to start creating change for herself. Sonya talks candidly about the challenges of creating change, and how she aims to share an honest picture of her reality through the different work that she leads. Sonya talks about the significant role her family has played in shaping who she is today and how they continue to be her biggest sponsors and supporter everyday.
