Protect Your Influence

Jun 25, 2019

Being entrusted with influence is something I value, and also something I protect.  What I have discovered over the years, is whatever you value, you will protect.  I am a firm believer that influence is powerful, and should be governed properly.  When you understand the weight of who you are, what you carry, and the responsibility that comes with it, you will honor it, and secure it.  Influence should be something you honor, something you cherish, and something you want GOD to trust you to carry.  Regardless of your role, occupation, income, or amount of social media followers, influence is something we all have in our possession.  How you see it, and how you handle it will determine if you can be trusted with more of it.  Having influence, and not knowing what to do with it, is like having a pencil, and not knowing how to write with it.  This week, Im going to share with you the purpose of your influence, and what to do with it....

Influence - Responsibility

Jun 19, 2019

Influence is powerful.  When GOD is preparing you for influence, HE begins to deal with your personal character, to prepare you for a great responsibility.  Some people have failed to recognized the significance of influence, and its true meaning.  Influence is not based on popularity; celebrity status, or followers.  Influence is Impactand your ability to lead and shift the lives of others.  Influence is a responsibility because you are able to influence others without even opening your mouth.  Influence carries weight, and GOD is looking for those who are able to carry his weight with responsibility.  Influence requires a clear head, and a clear focus.  You must be able to discern well, and make the right decision even if it requires saying NO.”  When you have influence, you just cant say or do anything you want to do.  You have to use discernment because your endorsement to a person or...

How to Unlock Influence

Jun 11, 2019

I get asked this question all the time. “How do I gain influence.” Influence is powerful, influence is simply the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone or something, or the effect itself. Some of the most powerful synonyms of influence is: impact; control; sway; power; authority; leadership; direction and guidance. Again, influence is powerful. I’ve also heard people say, “I don’t need influence.” My face is always astonished, like, “Wow, do you have any idea what you are saying.” When you are declaring you don’t need influence, you are diminishing your power to walk in leadership, and demoting yourself from making an impact. Your words have power, and when you make those statements, you are demoting your impact.

Say this after me. “Influence is powerful, and I want influence.” Awesome, now say it over and over again until you feel the spirit of influence manifest in your...

Branding 501: Present Well

May 28, 2019

Presentation is everything.  Presentation is the representation that speaks one word, Value.”  What you value, you will present with excellence.  Presentation has a drawing power, that has the ability to bring your people forth.  If you want to draw people, present well.  People are attracted to what they are able to visually see, and they will invest in what they are drawn to.

What you value, you will present with excellence.  You will become so passionate about what you are presenting to others, that it will stir you to demonstrate your best.  Presenting with excellence will cause you to invest more in yourself, and what GOD has assigned you to do.  Let me take a moment to encourage you, that many of your businesses, and brands are diamonds hidden in the dust.  GOD is beginning to expose you to the power of branding, and embracing the awareness of I am my brand.”  The reason GOD is shining light on your...

Branding 401: The Value of the Brand

May 21, 2019

 Value is everything.  What you value, you will protect; honor; and serve with excellence.  To value something or someone is to regard something as worthy, and useful.  The synonyms of value is: Worth; Advantage; Service; Help; Importance; Significance, and Merit.  There are more synonyms found; however these are my favorite.  As we discuss Brand, and you being your brand, I want you to pause, and assess how much you value your brand.  Often times we want others to value, what we fail to value.  If I can be honest, you will never have someone value what you refuse to honor, appreciate, and deem worthy. Now slow your roll, dont get super deep on me, and say to yourself, My brand isnt worthy.  Only GOD is worthy of all Praise.”  You right, only GOD is worthy of such praise; however Im painting the picture.  (In my voice)

What I want you to understand is that you must value who you are, and what...

Branding 301: Brand Identity

May 14, 2019

We have spent a few weeks discussing the difference between brand, and branding.  It was so refreshing to unlock the revelation that You are your brand.”  I put so much emphasis on declaring the importance of you understanding that You are your brand.”  I want you to become solid in who you are, and who GOD called you to be.  This is a time to embrace your uniqueness and individuality.  Oftentimes,  we spend more time building people, that we forget about ourselves during the process.  Its necessary to have a good balance on serving, and praising others; however we cant neglect ourselves in the process.  

Now that I got that off my chest, lets move into this weeks teaching.  Brand Identity.  Although you are your brand, its important to have identity to who you are, what your mission will be, and how your audience will get the information.  Although my name is Sophia...

Define the Brand

Define Your Brand

You are your brand.  How powerful is that?  That was one of the most powerful revelations I discovered during my journey of unlocking the GOD Brand in me.  Yes, I said the GOD brand in me.  Thats exactly what we are designed to do.  We are designed to reveal the GOD in us, to the world around us.  GOD is an amazing Creator, and in the beginning HE speaks about his Creation with each of us in mind.  The same genius in GOD is the same genius He puts in each of us.  

 Its imperative that you grasp a strong understanding that you are your brand, and your Brand first begins with Identity.  You must begin by defining, Who you are.”  When people see you, and hear about you, what are they receiving.  The message is what are you communicating verbally, and non-verbally.

The more you are aware of who you are, and whose you are, the more effective you will be in...

Branding 101

Apr 30, 2019

Have you ever wondered to yourself, what is a brand? Well, let’s make it more personal. Have you ever wondered to yourself, what is my brand? If I can be honest, I didn’t know what my brand was, nor the importance of having a brand; especially living in a social media, branding and marketing generation where technology is everything. To be honest, if you are not careful, you can find yourself making your brand your idol, and that’s where the error begins. Branding is scriptural and very important; however, we must have a balance keeping branding in its proper place, and GOD in the highest seat.

I am so excited to teach a branding series to help you with setting boundaries and unlocking the beauty of your brand. Some of you may be thinking, I don’t have a brand, I don’t have a product, and I don’t have a following. Well, to be honest, you can have a brand without a product and without a following. Yes, I said it correctly. You can have a brand...

So, lets pause, and recap on what weve learned this month.  Yes, that means I want you all to physically take a deep breath, sit still for a few minutes, and meditate on what youve learned from each lesson.  Trust me, Im not requesting any of you to do what Im not willing to do.  With that being said, as your Coach, I did the exact same thing.  I took a deep breath, and spent time reflecting on what Ive poured out this month.

HOW TO HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD

Apr 17, 2019
  1. Hearing the voice of GOD is one of the most amazing benefits of salvation.  Having divine access to the supernatural realm, where you are able to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to the Church. The church within you, because you are the temple of the Holy Spirit.  I can recall days in my past where I struggled with hearing the voice of GOD.  I often wondered, Lord is this you speaking or is this me.  I was so confused, and desired to hear the voice of GOD so bad.  I would even look up messages, on how to hear and discern the voice of GOD.  

 Can any of you relate?  Have you ever wondered what the voice of GOD sounds like?  Awesome, Im glad youre being transparent. (smile, I´m speaking directly to you.)  

Discerning the voice of GOD is key to living a victorious life.  You must have the skill to decipher whats GOD; whats the enemy, and whats you.  There are three channels...
