Sophie Chiche is a French American entrepreneur, optimistic and intuitive. 

She’s fueled by the desire to share, stimulate, and inspire meaning. Her lifelong dedication to exploring the question of “why” has taken her all over the world, where she’s presented speeches and connected with movers and shakers like Arianna Huffington and Nelson Mandela with the goal of advancing human consciousness.  

Sophie’s written for several renowned international publications, served as a coach for high-powered entrepreneurs and executives in large corporations, and helped craft businesses and social ventures of all shapes and sizes.

She’s earned masters degrees in business and journalism in her native city of Paris, France and added one in psychology soon after she moved to Los Angeles in 1993. She’s given two successful TEDx talks and co-authored the well-received book, “The Power of Personal Accountability: Achieve what Matters to You.” Her latest book, “closer to my bones,” is expected to come out later this year.    

Sophie’s the founder of Shape House, Los Angeles’ premier Urban Sweat Lodge, where people flock to enjoy the rejuvenating benefits of infrared sweat therapy. She’s also the founder and curator of, an online community dedicated to exploring meaningful conversations.  

She is also the producer and showrunner of her upcoming TV show about food, weight, and body image, called “war and piece of cake.” Sharing her own journey of losing 200 pounds, she chats with people about their [disorderd] eating habits.  

Her most recent venture – becurrent – is the culmination of everything so far. She comes to it with  a unique blend gathered over the last 30 years of building teams, writing books, running companies, coaching peak performers, and raising children.

When she’s not doing all of that, she’s freeform dancing in a burgundy tutu, or riding her Harley on the PCH.
