On this edition of In Black America, producer/host John L. Hanson Jr. speaks with Sophia A. Nelson, Esq., author of ‘The Woman Code: 20 Powerful Keys to Unlock Your Life.”
Nelson is an award-winning author and journalist. She is also a highly sought-after corporate leadership trainer and motivational speaker. Nelson has a national platform that is making strides to help women lead more fulfilling and powerful lives in and out of the workplace.
In her latest book, "The Woman Code," Nelson asks women to examine their spiritual, professional and personal daily habits in an effort to guide them to purposeful and successful lives.
Nelson's personal and professional journey is the basis for her popular columns, writings, events, corporate workshops and TV appearances. A former Congressional Committee Counsel, Lobbyist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and a senior attorney with the international powerhouse law firm of Holland & Knight, LLP. In 2008, Nelson left the practice of law to pursue her life-long goal of becoming a journalist and TV commentator during the historic 2008 Presidential campaign.
Every woman lives by a code, whether she realizes it or not. It informs how she treats others and herself, how much she expects of herself, and how far she is willing to go in order to find success. But is the code we're living by truly helping us create the lives of purpose and fulfillment we desire? Or are we sacrificing the deeper things for mere achievement?
