Sonia is a successful Entrepreneur, TV and Radio Show Host and award-winning Author. She is also a Mentor, Business and Communications Trainer, Consultant and Inspirational Speaker.
Sonia creates strategies, tools and tips that enable her clients to overcome life and career struggles – shine like a star and master their hustle.
Since 2002, Sonia has worked for herself. She’s owned a letting agency, transforming her first property into a profit of a quarter of a million pounds. She’s also owned a successful shoe stop and a children’s nursery. These are all business experiences that she draws inspiration from.
“Every thought, idea, ambition that ever came into my mind, I’m going to achieve it… In order for you to have dreams, you have to dream.”
In 2014, a guest appearance on local radio transformed into her latest endeavour – a talk show.
Sonia’s talk show, Colourful Life, airs on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, part of Colourful Radio’s award-winning lineup. She’s animated, passionate, excitable, self-driven, sassy and saucy.
Sonia’s on-air chats are about culture and lifestyle, sandwiched between tunes – has included spicy conversations with top-notch guests like Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child, Desiree Rogers – President Barack Obama’s former Social Secretary, Levi Roots – a British-Jamaican Reggae Musician, Lisa Nichols, ET and many more.
Not surprisingly, her sultry tone is often tapped for voice overs, communications training and public speaking. Sonia also delivers nuggets of knowledge on her YouTube channel (Sonia Poleon).
When she’s away from the microphone, Sonia mentors the next generation of Disc Jockeys through her Radio Rookie program and helps those who are stuck to master their hustle.
When people tell me they can’t do X, Y, Z because of their kids, she tells them it’s a load of rubbish. “If I did it, you can do it!”
