Connie E. Sokol
Teaching people how to navigate a life shift. Educating them to become profound leaders in continuing the change. Providing them with accountability, support, and resources. Helping individuals keep core values first as they define personal purpose and contribute in meaningful ways.
Back to Basics stemmed from Connie’s mission to improve people's quality of life, both professionally and personally. Over time and through experience of working with hundreds of women through presentations, programs, and life coaching, she defined key principles that produced positive results but were simple to use. That led Connie to share them in 17 books, become a bestselling author, and create the Back to Basics program. Back to Basics is a value-based self-help program that educates individuals--particularly women--to live purposeful, organized, joyful lives. The Back to Basics program includes support, accountability, and resources to ensure success. In professional or personal life, dealing with life challenges or improving your quality of life, Connie has the principles that will make the change.
“Be realistic, be wise, and remember that goals are not to inhibit our quality of life but to improve it.”
