That Work-Life Balance
Everyone always seems to be looking for the magical work-life-balance. To find that magical place where your work-life and your personal life are both optimal and nothing every takes over the other. Sophia stresses the importance of finding your own work-life balance, especially as someone who is a freelancer, without the structure or a normal 9-5 you might find your work imposing on your personal life and vice versa.

The Power Of Thought
”There’s the everyday kind of magic that we make for ourselves. And that’s really not magic at all. It’s just recognizing the fact that we control our thoughts and our thoughts control our lives.” Sophia explains that although the idea that we control our thoughts is simple enough, it’s hard to totally understand and embrace.
Introverts Vs Extroverts
Believing that you need to be an extrovert to be successful in this world, whether it’s school or work is an easy assumption to make. But Sophia explains that it’s not accurate. Although being an introvert makes you feel as if you can hide in the shadows and be overlooked, this doesn’t directly correlate to success. Just because you’re not the loudest voice in the room doesn’t mean your ideas don’t hold value.
Starting a business also takes a lot of personal sacrifices. If you start a business, expect that you’re probably going to be broke for a long time. If you’re not broke, consider yourself broke.’ Sophia explains that there are two different breeds of entrepreneurs. The ones whoa re well educated and make the decision to start their own business. And the ones who don’t see any other choice.
