During these times, we are all having to find new ways to connect. Join me every week as I talk with people that inspire me, about love, life, leadership, and silver linings. The hope is that we all leave with something I think we need these days… A Bit of Optimism.
Enchantment with Chloe Valdary
What is the best way to navigate the world of diversity, equity and inclusion? Chole Valdary’s point of view is different from the norm. The founder of the Theory of Enchantment believes the best way for us to come together is to first find love within ourselves. And the results are...enchanting. This is…A Bit of Optimism.
The Value of Failing with Suneel Gupta
There are only a few people in the world who have made a success out of failing. Serial entrepreneur and author of Backable, Suneel Gupta is one of them. We talked about the importance of failing and the lessons we can learn. This is…A Bit of Optimism.
Awesome Responsibility with Kyle Carpenter
We’ve seen it in the movies, someone throws themselves onto a grenade to save their buddy, but how many of us could actually do it? Kyle Carpenter, the youngest living recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor, can answer that question. However, he sees what he did as the kind of responsibility we all have - to protect and take care of each other. His words are powerful and inspiring. This is…A Bit of Optimism.
Raising Resilient Kids with Angela Duckworth
With unprecedented levels of stress and depression amongst young people, I wanted to know what we, as an older generation can do to help. So I talked to psychologist, professor at the University of Pennsylvania author of Grit , Angela Duckworth. This is… A Bit of Optimism.
Learning to Love with Tim Shriver
Most people know him as a disability rights activist, chairman of the Special Olympics or for his book The Call to Unite. But when we talked, our conversation took a turn. We ended up talking about what it means to learn to love. And it was wonderful.
This is ... A Bit of Optimism.
Thinking Differently with Matthew Barzun
Every now and then, I get to meet someone who sees the world differently. Matthew Barzun is one of those people. He was early to see opportunities that others didn’t - in the internet, in political fundraising and even as US Ambassador. Put simply, Matthew helps us see the world differently. This is… A Bit of Optimism
Simon, you are a rock star 💫
As always, as expected, it’s all about mind set. I love your work and this was even better. More power to you!
My dose of oxytocin!
Listening to Simon fills me with so much of positivity and kindness. Every episode of the podcast inspires me to be a better person, give as much to others around me as I can without any expectations.
The way Simon summarises every podcast in the end gives me goosebumps because the message hits right where it’s supposed to. Thank you for being so beautifully optimistic Simon :)
