We had the good fortune of connecting with Sophie Shepherd and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sophie, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Honestly, I just wanted to help women not stay stuck in sick bodies. I had no idea what I was doing at the beginning, no one had trained me in business, that came later. I just knew that there was a better solution to women”s mental, gut and period health issues. There was a deep guttural need to pay it forward and to empower the women of this world to become the CEO’s of their hormones & gut. I just knew that through my own healing journey and the years of functional nutrition and health coaching I had invested in, that I could teach women how to take back control of their health and learn how to love themselves again.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I’m so excited about our proprietary program called the SHE Health Experience where we infused energy work, with tools to build self love with functional lab work and lifestyle science to transform women’s lives. We find that when we truly look holistically at a person and support their nervous system, immune system, view of themselves, energy systems, endocrine system, digestives system and detox system that we uncover what is at the root of their chronic gut, period & mental health symptoms. Through this process of not only working with me but my team of SHE coaches these women not only reclaim their health but reclaim their lives. We see women ask for promotions, get better jobs, improve their relationships, and walk through the world with more confidence.
It’s also what sets us apart from other Functional practitioners. We are there with you every step of the way, walking with you, there to support every aspect of your health so you no longer have to go through this alone.
I got to be a multi 6 figure business owner through the biggest personal development journey of my life. Nothing prepared me for the challenges that come with creating something from scratch, trusting your instincts, sticking with it after you keep hearing no, learning how to master sales, managing and international team of 8 and how to provide excellent customer service and satisfaction. It’s been really hard but also so very rewarding.
I learned to keep picking myself up, that failures are how we learn and grow and that as long as my energy is behind it, the business will be okay.
SHE Talks Health is here to help the women of this world with their health in deeper levels than they could even imagine and that by doing so we hope to spread an international movement of empowered healthy women.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would take them for a sunset at Look out point and dinner at the thai place in golden! If it was summer I’d have them grab some tubes during the day and hit the river in Golden.
I would probably take them for a gelato boy ice cream and then hang out at Wash Park.
That night I might take them to Avanti and recommend the Arepas followed by drinks at Forest Room 5 because the vibe rocks.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Kristin Thomas from Health & Wellness Business School. She changed everything for me! She is an incredible business coach for health coaches and she helped me create the HOW behind my big vision. I’ve been working with her for 3+ years and I would never have gotten here without her.
