In this episode, I am joined by one of my amazing clients, friends, and speakers, Dr. Sonia Chopra. Sonia was first on The Big Talk back in 2018 for Episode 191. And I’m super excited to be in conversation with her again today!


Sonia Chopra, DDS, is a board-certified endodontist, TEDx speaker, Forbes contributor, author, and endodontic instructor. She is the founder of Ballantyne Endodontics in Charlotte, North Carolina, and of E-School, an innovative online course in endodontics for general dentists.


I had the privilege of supporting Sonia 1:1 as she prepared for the TEDxFarmingdale stage. And I can’t wait for you to hear about everything she’s been up to since our last conversation on the podcast!


In this episode, we’ll explore:


  • How she overcame a massive fear of public speaking to become a sought-after thought leader and speaker

  • Her journey to taking a TEDx stage and what it took to prepare

  • The importance of self-awareness in leadership

  • Her current favorites: Book: Traction, Speaker: Brené Brown, and Podcast: The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett
