Kemi Sogunle Interview
Kemi Sogunle: Certified Professional Coach ~ International Speaker ~ Multi-Award-Winning Author
Q: Tell me a little bit about yourself.
A: My name is Kemi Sogunle. I am a certified professional coach, an international speaker and multi-award-winning author of life and relationship books. I started my journey six years ago after my painful divorce. I found myself after an encounter with God and connected to my purpose of helping single men and women to find who they are so that they can experience true love and also supporting married couples with conflict resolution, intimacy and trust issues.
Q: I saw on your blog that you are a certified professional coach. I was wondering if you could explain more about what your mission is as a coach.
A: Absolutely! My mission in life (my life’s purpose) is to help single men and women to find who God created them to be prior to or while in a relationship, experience love first for themselves so that they can build on a healthier relationship that will make their lives better not bitter. I believe the foundation of love starts with God as the center of our core.
Q: I also saw that you are the “Founder/CEO of the nonprofit organization, Love Not Hurt, an organization that promotes self-development building healthier stronger relationships while living with a purpose.” What else would you like people to know about Love Not Hurt
A: Love Not Hurt empowers others through mentoring programs to develop themselves and build on healthier and stronger relationships. We work with other organizations and churches by teaching others (both young and old) on self-awareness and love.
Q: Let’s say that one day you’re walking on the street and you hear someone crying. You go up to them and say: (What would you say, why would you say it, and in what other ways could you, non-verbally, comfort this person?
A: I would ask them what is wrong and how I can assist them. This question reminds me of the story of the good Samaritan. We are our brothers and sisters’ keeper and ensuring that everyone we meet is left in a much better stay is vital. If I could render a hug, a word of encouragement or a prayer and in anyway possible support them, I will do exactly that.
Q: How has your walk with God impacted your life?
A: I grew up as a preacher’s daughter and I have always had a relationship with God even though I slipped away. I found myself back to God after my divorce and dedicated my life to serving Him. I believe God is the reason I am still alive and standing. This is why I take my purpose seriously and work towards touching lives through love and coaching. Without God I would be nothing and I am so grateful for the opportunity to experience His love and share it with others.
