Sophie-Marie Odum

Sophie-Marie Odum

Sophie joined Wonderly in 2014 and played a fundamental role in the relaunch of Lifestyle magazine – a quarterly magazine, which is distributed to more than 640,000 Motability Scheme customers.

 
What’s been your Wonderly highlight to date? 
 
Working on IB World, for the International Baccalaureate, and Lifestyle magazine, for Motability, as both have allowed me to share the stories of many exceptional and extraordinary people (such as Tom Enoch, pictured), and write about important topics.
 
Any upcoming projects you’re excited for? 
 
We recently retained the contract to publish Lifestyle magazine for another three years, with an added digital offering. I’m really excited to help lead us through this next step and share many more stories.
 
If you could recommend one thing about Wonderly to a friend, what would it be?
 
We’re a small team, which means that there’s so many opportunities to get involved in different projects. All ideas are welcomed and heard.
 
Tell us something people wouldn’t know about you…
 
I’m a qualified life coach, with a particular interest in maternal wellbeing.
 
What are you reading/listening/watching at the moment?
 
Reading: ‘I Am Not Your Baby Mother’ by Candice Braithwaite; listening to: ‘The Diary of a CEO with Steven Bartlett’; and just finishing watching ‘Mike’ on Disney+ (highly recommend), next on my list is the new series of ‘The Crown’
 
Top three dinner party guests?
 
Iyanla Vanzant for the inspo

Judi Love for the comedy
Whitney Houston for the entertainment

If you could only eat one item for every meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

One item?! That’s hard, but it would have to be potatoes – I love chips, jackets, roasted, boiled and mashed!

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

Not everyone thinks the same as you, and that’s OK.

Tell us your best joke…

I love the jokes at the back of a Penguin chocolate bar, such as:

How does a Penguin build its house? Igloos it together

 
Thank you, Sophie-Marie!
