Small Business Lives was created to help Creative Business Owners use Lives to showcase their business, develop their confidence, get used to being more visible on Instagram.
It’s been a huge success for the small businesses who have been involved and I am extremely proud and honoured to have supported them on their Social Media journey. So far 45 Small Business Owners have been involved, shared their inspiring stories and had amazing outcomes which you can read below. I can’t wait to speak to the next 40!
The Power of Lives is real. They help with business growth, raise brand awareness and provide inspirational conversations. Lives enable audiences to connect and get to know the people behind the business.
So do come and say Hi at SociallySophieB and connect with lots of amazing Creative Business Owners.
And if you would like help going Live on Instagram and would like the opportunity to go Live with me on Small Business Lives then do get in touch .

I look forward to welcoming you to Small Business Lives and becoming one of a group of fantastically supportive Creative Business Owners.
I can’t wait to hear from
Sophie helps you get to the core of what you feel about the carefully crafted questions she asks – it feels like a coaching experience, you feel in really safe hands. I came out of the whole experience knowing more about myself and what I want to do with my business! It has been extremely worthwhile in business terms, my Instagram attracted more followers post interview and I had such positive and uplifting comments from people that had attended the live and also watched it afterwards on IGTV. I urge everyone to take their turn at this. Sophie is running an incredible service for us all! YOU HAVE TO DO IT!
I was pretty nervous to speak on my first live. I needn’t have been as Sophie is a wonderful interviewer. Someone who really puts you at ease, genuinely believes in and champions your work and makes you giggle at the same time! Since going live I have had several student enquiries which have turned into ongoing lessons. I would not have had these opportunities if I hadn’t stepped out of my comfort zone. Small Business Lives has been amazing for me, and I’ve continued to watch and enjoy them do the same for so many other wonderful business owners.
I was recently invited to take part in an instagram live with Sophie which was a delight. I had been slightly nervous beforehand but Sophie put me at my ease and asked some very interesting questions. I think she enabled me to tell people things about my business and myself that they may not have been aware of and certainly helped people learn more about the face behind the business which is so important these days. I got some lovely feedback during and after the live and I would be very happy to do it again. Sophie is passionate about working with small businesses and that shines through in everything she does.
I enjoyed doing the Live and it has lead to increased visibility with an increase in followers and invites to guest on podcasts. People want to make connections, hear stories that relate to their journeys. Especially in a time where human contact has been denied. The experience has encouraged me to develop my own ideas for IGTV Lives on my own page. It was a lovely experience to chat with Sophie and I look forward to more conversations in the future.
I have always been so conscious and shy to do it, but Sophie gave me the courage and what better to start with than on her series of #SmallBusinessLives. She is such a business coach as well as a fabulous supporter of small businesses which is why I am already episode 39 on the list. It has definitely given me a boost of confidence and it shows, if you don't try you won't know what will happen
I really enjoyed doing a live with Sophie. She puts you at ease straight away and you chat about your business while answering some excellent well thought out questions which make the conversation flow. Speaking to Sophie is always a delight, I talked about my why and my motivations and what inspires me and I connected and gained new followers too.
Doing a live with Sophie helped me feel validated in what I was doing as a business and that there was an audience that wanted to discover what this young business had to offer! It gave me great exposure and welcomed me into an amazing community of small businesses supporting each other!
Relaxed environment to discuss my business, seems to have allowed others to see the real me. I feel it has helped people approach me since they have been 'introduced' to me. I have planned collaborations with 2 other businesses and gained numerous contacts from viewers
