PRIVATE COACHING gives entrepreneurs the guidance and tools they need to resolve their current roadblocks, and GROW THEIR REVENUE.

  • Do you feel like you could be making or raising more money? And that your startup has so much potential, but you just haven't figured out how to get people to notice it?
  • Have you tried different approaches to boost your startup's revenue, but they're not working?
  • Are you constantly worried about where your next round of funds will be coming from?
  • Are you exhausted by the hustle, and wondering when you'll finally reach your goals for your startup? 
  • Do you want to reduce your workload and work less, while increasing your revenue and decreasing your work output?

Then PRIVATE COACHING is perfect for you!


  • Go through your mission, goals for the year, and your current challenges with a fine-tooth comb.
  • I’ll identify where your potential downfalls are, your strengths, and mix that all together to create an Optimization Plan specific to your startup.
  • With an Optimization Plan, you’ll gain clarity on the daily and monthly tasks you need to achieve revenue growth and reach your long-term goals. This assessment will be followed up with an action plan to help you with execution.


the Value

By the end of our work together, you'll experience breakthroughs for your business and progress your startup to the revenue, efficiency, and impact you desire. 

I'm known for leaving visible footprints for continued success after I finish working with my clients. Our work together will not be a one time event, and it will leave behind a trail for powerful changes in your startup's operations and financial growth. 

You’ll gain noticeable clarity on the steps you need to take to reach your goals, with a substantial action plan on the daily tasks to get you there. It's absolutely possible to feel financially stable and gain consistent revenue while pursuing mission-driven work. I am living proof of that. 

You'll relieve the anxieties tied around your biggest worries and be able to focus on the aspects of your work that you cherish most. This means less burnout, and you'll gain the shift to construct mature, thoughtful content that's light years ahead of your competition.

The best part?

You'll elevate your startup's revenue for a fraction of the cost of bringing on a full time Executive employee.

Who is this for? 

  • This option is ideal for entrepreneurs who crave results immediately. You need winning strategies, an action plan, and want Executive-level execution in achieving your revenue goals. 

With a 3 –month intensive, in addition to receiving a road map for your startup, you also receive my hands-on support during the execution phase of your Optimization Plan.

So for example, if your current roadblock is that your pitch to potential partners aren't winning you any business, a 3-month intensive differs from a 1-month intensive in that it allows enough time for me to help you craft, edit, and refine your pitch to its final form, and train you during a mock pitch. 


  • 1st Month: Goals and Challenges Assessment (Determine the challenges you'd like to work on together, and the goals connected to overcoming these challenges.)

My first startup was a clothing line bootstrapped out of a college dorm room when I was 19 years old. My second startup was a clean water nonprofit that my cofounder and I built from a $500 donation.

I spent years struggling to build a community, generating consistent revenue, and hitting the numbers that my startups needed to operate at scale. I tried every single fundraising event, strategy, and selling approach to boost my startup’s sales, but none of them had a lasting effect on my revenue. 

There were days when I felt that my startup’s mission was too big for me, and that my bone-grinding work wasn’t making a big enough impact. Or times where I wanted to crumble because the political dilemmas our organization was facing was confusing and scary. The most depressing days were when I didn't know where my next paycheck would be coming from. I was constantly working, but not getting anywhere. 

The turning point in my career came when I opened myself to complete revision.

Ten years of ups and downs at my startups instilled a deep understanding and clarity in me on the factors that enable startups to stagnate or explode in revenueI let go of my inhibitions and started from scratch. I decided that I wasn't available for defeat anymore. My life completely turned around that year, leading to large grants, notable accolades, and incredible personal breakthroughs. 

I've been where you are now, and I know how to navigate through the unique challenges of being a social entrepreneur. There's a way to create something giving and impactful for others while also making sure that we, the people behind it are also taking care of ourselves, financially and mentally. 

I began coaching social entrepreneurs because I was tired of seeing my brilliant friends create meaningful startup ideas that would never come to fruition because of a lack of funding. Generating consistent revenue for a nonprofit or social enterprise can be intimidating, challenging, and confusing.

Doing good doesn’t have to be so difficult. If I was able to grow my nonprofit to six-figures in revenue from a $500 donation, you can too.

I’ve used my experience to coach social entrepreneurs to build revenue-rich startups that allow them to reach the financial stability and impact that they desire. With hands-on execution and accountability, I'm known for delivering exceptional results.  

I'm also a firm believer that there's a way to feel grounded and safe, financially and mentally, while you're building your startup. So that there's no guilt behind stepping away from your computer on a Friday, and not checking emails on the weekends. 


You can go on vacation, and not be constantly checking your email. You can streamline your operations so that you're doing less busy work, and more of the work you love. I'm a living advocate of working smart and reducing overwhelm, all while keeping your revenue strong. 
I'm tired of seeing social entrepreneurs press pause on their incredible ideas.

If I was able to transform my life and my startup from rock bottom, so can you. 

This is what coaching is all about, making room for big transformations to catapult you to a new trajectory of success. 



Rachel Webre, Engineers Without Borders NYC.  Sophia was an excellent presenter at our Engineers without Borders chapter meeting.  She gave us some great insight into how we could be more effective at fundraising within the chapter.  She helped us think more strategically about how we can get more bang for our buck within the realm of public fundraising.  As a volunteer-based organization, we are somewhat limited in terms of resources we can put forth to get corporate or foundation money, and therefore we rely very heavily on our network.  Sophia encouraged us to think more creatively about existing donors and about how to get new donors.  I’m happy to report that we have since implemented some of her strategies and have been on a higher revenue trajectory!

Erin Zaikis, Sundara. Sophia has been the single best help to our organization this year. Investing in her services has paid for itself time and time again. Having her to consult with on important matters any ED faces like fundraising, board development and pitching strategy has given our organization the boost we so desperately needed at year-end. Since working with her we are on track to fundraise over $35k this month alone - more than we've ever fundraised in a month before. Sophia is reliable, easy to talk to and always willing to be honest about what works and what doesn't based on her own 6 years of experience in the non-profit world. She has kept me accountable to the goals I set for myself and her guidance has truly been transformative for myself and Sundara as a whole.
