Why It’s Time To Stop Adding Value

Sonia’s love of personal development and fierce ambition led to her position as National Sales Trainer for peak performance expert Anthony Robbins. In this position, she traveled extensively throughout the US and Canada, delivering sales and leadership training for major companies.

As the only woman in a small team of men, Sonia developed some invaluable and influential skills. In the span of 8 weeks, she and her team would build a customer base capable of generating $800k- $1million in sales – then pick up and start over in a new location.

Now, she is a popular speaker, mentor & direct sales/marketing coach for women – as well as one of the founding partners of Women United for Change – a network marketing organization geared towards the empowerment of female professionals.
