"Letting Go as a CEO"

39

“If you’re an entrepreneur you’re always one." – Sophia Rossi

In this week’s episode, we’re talking with major girl boss Sophia Rossi about work, life transitions, and how to integrate spirituality across it all. A former producer of the hit TV show The Hills and cofounder of HelloGiggles alongside Zooey Deschanel and Molly McAlleer, Sophia is no stranger to kicking butt at anything she does. But after HelloGiggles successfully sold, she found herself slightly lost for what was next and reevaluating her values. We talk about how both her Jewish roots and Transcendental Meditation practice have shaped her perspective and regular rituals (including the ability to turn her phone off and set harder boundaries), the power of positivity and an online community, and ultimately how to go through challenging times to honor your experience on the other side.

“You have to re-heal your body. That’s how you honor yourself in the next round.” – Sophia Rossi
