Today, I’m joined by Dr. 索尼娅·赖特 – a board-certified radiologist, a sexual counselor, and a certified life coach. She received her education from Stanford University, the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine, 梅奥诊所, and the University of Michigan. Dr. 莱特 completed her life coach training from Brooke Castillo’s The Life Coach School and Learning Journeys.

Sonia is on a mission to help women embrace their sexuality and end the emotional pain and isolation associated with sexual difficulties. Dr. 莱特 believes wholeheartedly that all women deserve to experience pleasurable sexual intimacy.

When she first started her author journey, “My original plan was to write my book, and I had this plan that I would go away for the weekend to Las Vegas.” January came along, and her plans didn’t work out. Sonia didn’t get to write her book.

To build her public speaking platform during COVID, Dr. 莱特 reached out to her network to be a guest on LIVE events and then started reaching out to podcasters to spread the word about her coaching and speaking availability. “I learned about my niche that really helped me hone in on the types of people that would listen to my message and make sure I directed my message in that direction.”

At first, 脸谱网 LIVE speaking worked out the best to bring in clients to interact with people. After her website was built, she had more people contacting her through her website after listening to her interview as a guest on another podcast.

Find out how her speaker kit made a big difference for her business, how Dr. 莱特 “normalizes” her topic, and how she grew her business while doing her regular day job.

Listen in to find out how Dr. 莱特 chose her niche and avatar, how to get clear on your solution, and how to feel confident talking about an “outside of the box” topic.
