Empowering and thoughtful

Simone does a great job of creating a space for people to share their stories authentically. And it’s not just about business and careers - there are gems in here for everyone! The result is a show that leaves me reflecting long after the episode is over.

A Very Inspiring Podcast! A Must Listen

This podcast has been such a blessing to me! The first episode I listened to was about not being afraid to ask. This was such an important message for me as I go through a career transition. It helped me to not feel guilty about asking for help from experts as I transition from Hospitality to Diversity & Inclusion.

Simone is a great host and asks the questions viewers want to know.

I highly recommend this podcast if you want to be inspired, uplifted and empowered.
