Your issues with great music


Sonia is an Entrepreneur, Mentor, Coach, Author, Consultant and Inspirational Speaker who has run many businesses in her time.

Soon after achieving her degree, Sonia decided, she had enough and was going to set up her own business, because of her acquired skills in Housing she set up a Letting Agent but then found she was still managing what was called “bad tenants”. With all this knowledge, skill and passion she decided she was going to invest in properties, later she began seminars teaching people how to invest in properties and went on to finding investment properties for her clients.

By now she was approaching mid life and had a burning desire to give back to the community, she remembered when her sons were young and how much she had to pay for childcare costs, having twins meant she had to pay double money and there was no concessions for having 2 babies. It was a desire that she opened a nursery and showed parents how she could not only provide a valued service for their children but also make it affordable for their pockets. That was almost 10 years ago and her nursery is still going strong today.

Radio Show

Hi Sonia it was a great show today. I caught the tail end of your first guest Eddy Chan which was very informative in terms of a more affordable way for students to study rather the cost of a tutor. However I would like to congratulate Yvonne for being so brave in sharing her story. Also having the courage to leave her abusive relationship. We know that stories such as Yvonne must not be swept under the carpet. Her story as well as many others will help others in similar situations. Domestic violence does not discriminate. I am currently writing my first fiction novel, Walk Quiet. Run Quick which starts with romance but ends in abuse. Which of course sends a message. Once again great programme Sonia.
