This week’s show is with Sophie Chiche. Sophie is a renowned life strategist, multi-talented entrepreneur, author, speaker, journalist, and psychologist. She is the founder of Be Current Today which is an innovative methodology that turns traditional productivity on its head. Likewise she is also the founder of the celeb-favorite Urban Sweat Lodge Shape House and LifeByMe.com which is an online platform where all sorts of people share meaning and where different personalities such as Deepak Chopra, Arianna Huffington, Seth Godin, Mariel Hemingway, Kenny Loggins and Jason Mraz have contributed to the website.
She published The Power of Personal Accountability: Achieve What Matters to You with Mark Samuel in 2004 and Petite Eloge de le Reponsabilité, French Edition in 2005. Equal parts philosophical and practical, Sophie has a unique ability to cut through the BS that keep people trapped in frameworks that don’t match their dreams. Sophie’s presence and care create a bond where individuals, staff, and businesses feel supported and connected, which breeds safety and brings courage that leads to incredible results.
Fueled by the desire to share, inspire, activate, and amplify, Sophie’s lifelong dedication to exploring the question of “why?” has taken her all over the world. She’s presented speeches and connected with movers and shakers like Arianna Huffington and Nelson Mandela with the goal of advancing human consciousness. Sophie’s helped craft businesses and social ventures of all shapes and sizes, written for several renowned international publications, and served as a coach for high-powered entrepreneurs and executives in large corporations.

Sophie has been on a weight loss journey that started in her early teens. Her weight went up to 340 pounds. And back down to 150. More learning and healing came out of that experience than anything else in her life. Used as a mirror reflecting what is going on inside her psychological, mental, even spiritual worlds, Soph has become an advocate to loving what is. And using everything that happens as a blessing to receive.
In this show, Sophie and Lian spoke about her experiences of being 320lb to losing much of that weight and what she’s discovered about feeling her feelings, physical expression, judgements of others, what’s true for her and why she believes created that experience in the first place – we went deep!
I’d love to know what YOU think about this week’s show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- Sophie’s experience of being larger and then smaller is a powerful example of how our physical expression is received by others, regardless of our other qualities
- I love Sophie’s insight on WHY she created that experience of herself and life – this is such an illuminating question to ask ourselves
- Harnessing the conscious creation of our expression in alignment with our Soul’s Will means that we may or may not align with cultural expectations in various ways – our work is to express ourselves anyway
