100% Real, 100% Fun

Authentic, real, laugh out loud moments rolled up in conversations that are reflective, relationship building and thought provoking. Encouraged to go on and have those uncomfortable convos where growth and development are on the other side. Good stuff y’all!

Authentic and relatable to the core!

A good time that closes the age gap between the experiences of parent and child. I loved listening to the plain speak from Simone and the funny snap backs from Journey! It feels so good to hear a lot of the experiences that we have all gone through echoed from another. It’s inspiring to hear how this mother/ daughter duo recounts what we have all gone through in life; being a parent, and remembering what it was like to grow up, have life smack you around, all while becoming yourself. A truly inspiring, beneficial, soul-feeding, fun time!

Good Stuff

Simone looks like a kid herself but the advices she dishes is the real deal. The chemistry and bond between mother and daughter keeps it engaging while being informative and even fun. They have all “the talks” we adults often avoid with teenagers and they get thru it with their relationship left intact. I’m not a parent but I am a mentor and friend to many youth and found this very helpful.
