Years ago, educational & motivational speaker Sophie Areli, was in a New York City homeless shelter with her daughter.
Determined to overcome her situation, she went to Grace Institute where she trained for 9 months to become a secretary.
Sophie did so well in the vocational program that she and her daughter were asked to represent Grace Institute in a TV commercial.
Upon graduating, Sophie went on to be a legal secretary at one of the top law firms in America: Cravath, Swaine & Moore, LLP.
However, after five years on the job, an illness caused her to leave.
As a single parent, she then had to figure out how to support her daughter once again!
In response, Sophie became a serial entrepreneur who has done it all: from photography to blogging to web design and even to sales (just to name a few ventures)!
The online expertise she has developed over the course of almost a decade allows her to understand her audience of women who want to build their own businesses so they can transition out of the rat race.
