Simon T. Bailey is no stranger to success, even though he’s quite familiar with failure. 

At a young age, Simon was turned down for multiple sports teams-but he didn’t let that stop him. 

He left his first college after just one year and moved into a low-income neighborhood. His path took him to a high-level role, which he transitioned away from when it became clear his days as an employee there were numbered. 

But in every situation, Simon was constantly searching for a way to use what he was truly passionate about-- helping others to discover their inner brilliance.

Simon is unafraid to transform himself, to recognize the need to evolve. He understands this means putting yourself out there and potentially failing. 

He spends this episode sharing his experiences and dropping life-changing perspectives on how you can help yourself grow, forgive others, and take responsibility for pursuing your dreams and find success.
