Coaches: Sonia Satra

Life coach, NLP practitioner and fitness instructor Sonia Satra shares her story with Purist

What if it were easy? What would you do? That was a question Sonia Satra asked her husband when he lost his job and felt like “everything” was “impossible” and he could never earn a deeply desired million dollars. He finally responded, “I guess if it were easy, I would start my own business.” After tapping into that truth, the next day he launched his own company and one year later he had earned $1 million! 

Sonia Satra—a life coach, NLP practitioner and fitness instructor—began her journey many years ago. With $500 and a beat-up Honda Accord, she drove across the country to follow her dream of becoming an actress. She quickly realized that rejection was a daily part of that business, so to cope and persevere, she began studying mindset as much as acting. It worked; she started landing commercials and television roles. Now, with over 10,000 hours of television and onstage time, the former star of Guiding Light and One Life to Live is passionate about helping other people achieve their dreams. 

In her new book, What if it Were Easy: Using Mindset and Movement to Create Success in Life, Love and Business, she shares her award-winning program Moticise, Mindset Reset, which follows a seven-step process to achieving life goals. This unique approach combines mindset and exercise and people have said it’s like having a life coach and fitness trainer in one!

Satra uses life coaching, Moticise and the Sphinx Code, a new assessment that uncovers your soul’s purpose to help people get unstuck, overcome fears, gain confidence and truly live the life they were meant to live.

With her guidance, clients have started new businesses, earned a million dollars (not just her husband), changed careers, found love and even lost 300 pounds!

As a past president of the National Speakers Association NYC, Satra also delivers keynotes, breakout sessions and corporate presentations. She has spoken at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Applied Positive Psychology, Goldman Sachs, Disney, Cisco, Verizon, Bank of America, United Healthcare, and others. 

Satra has been featured in Forbes, the New York Post, Huffington Post, Reader’s Digest, Celebrity Parenting, CBS, ABC, Fox and other media.
