"Simone is a master coach and highly skilled at helping successful people lead better and earn more. Her guidance and thought provoking questions helped me bring about great success in my business, doubling total revenue in the time I worked with her. But that's not the best part.
The best part is she helped me stay sane as I did it. Better than that, she continually guided my back to my Big Why–my purpose–so I felt more inspiration, power, joy, and fun along the way. When it comes to leading leaders, Simone knows what she's doing, and I couldn't recommend her more highly.”
~Dr. Aziz Gazipura, founder of Center for Social Confidence
"Simone and I have an ongoing debate: I like to call her my life coach. She insists that she is my executive coach. Aren’t they one in the same? AHA! Therein lies the rub. Simone has helped me realize that my life and my career are not one-in-the-same. This truism we all know, theoretically, but the practice of separation (aka balance) is elusive for the best of us. Simone will not only remind you; she will challenge you. Trust me, she’s not soft. She cuts to the chase. I always learn from her in every session. Along the way, she has made me a better human being."
~Nora Murray, Principal SoundBite Communications
"My audience enjoyed Simone Janssen’s compelling presentation. Grounded and clear, she created genuine connection with the audience and between audience members. Each person came away with new tools which can be applied immediately to their unique life circumstances. What I loved about Simone was how she embodied what she taught. I got great feedback from the audience after the event."
~Jessica Hadari, Founder, FEM Talks
"I first encountered Simone Janssen when she spoke at the G3 Women's Conference in Sonoma, CA. She had me in under 4 minutes. I knew I wanted to work with her to move my design studio forward. Her wisdom relayed as a speaker played out as the real thing and then much more as she worked with me over the next several months. She asked some hard, but imperative questions. I welcomed them. Simone 'gets' what it takes to bust out of our patterns to reach higher and get clearer. She has Really Good Ideas. Ideas I keep close—on the table, in a binder— that I continue to grow from and will carry with me always. Like the BHAG. You'll have to ask her about that one yourself."
~Lori Winter, Explore Creative
"Working with Simone has encouraged me to reflect on my strengths (cake) and challenges (cringe) in a way that has allowed me to think bigger and bolder about my goals. I have learned tools and tactics from our time together I have applied to both my personal and professional growth plans. Simone asks great questions and provides relevant resources I can turn around and apply to my work right away."
~Rebecca Zanatta, President, RJZ Connections, Inc.
and VP Growth & Strategy, The Ostara Group
"Working with Simone has completely transformed my way of approaching my work, my relationships, my thought processes and ultimately has elevated my whole life. I have reclaimed the passion and joy that I lost over the years and have renewed hope and abundance. "
~Liz Jenks, Founder, glowgirl
"Working with Simone has helped me see my strengths for their full potential and find ways to use the strengths to blow through areas in which I thought I was limited by weaknesses. Now I am looking at all aspects of my life and asking which of my strengths applies and how I can use it to maximize my gains both professionally and personally. I always seemed to feel energized when I was skiing, surfing, paddling, biking – all those “get away” moments. Now I’m experiencing that same energy build in everything I’m doing. And to create and use this energy in my work has already opened my eyes to opportunities that I thought were nonexistent. The best part is that I see myself growing in the months ahead and although I know I will end up many times out of my comfort zone, I’m excited for it. I wake up energized and look forward to all things I get to do each day."
~Francine R. Tone, Managing Partner, Tone & Tone, Attorneys at Law
"Simone came into my life at the moment when everything was falling apart. I had lost all sense of meaning in my marriage, my job and myself. I was paralyzed by self-doubt and I couldn’t see past my fear. Through Simone’s direct, no-nonsense yet compassionate guidance, I have navigated through huge life changes with a greater sense of my own power and courage. Now, I am the best version of me that I have ever been in my entire life. Where there was once doubt and fear, I am now a person of purpose, direction and clarity. My new career has taken off in ways I could never have imagined and I absolutely love what I do.
In her kind way, Simone will call you out on your bullshit and steer you back towards your goals. She will offer tools and practices to help you navigate your own personal path to success and fulfillment. If you are looking to live your best possible life, if you want to make your career dreams a reality - look no further than Simone to help guide you on that path!"

"It takes literally minutes to feel comfortable with Simone and certain you are in the hands of a competent and experienced coach. She balances a focused session with inspiration for taking your life to the next level. I like to get to the point and move quickly and Simone can do both. Simone offers extremely insightful feedback and has had dramatic impact on how I see and approach my worth, my goals and my progress. I could not ask for a better coach for creating a life for myself that is bigger, more meaningful and more satisfying than I could ever do on my own."

Simone created all the right pieces to transform my vision into a vision shared by all my employees. Through her engaging, intuitive and fun delivery my team really gelled. It was a great success."

"Simone is genuine in her affirmation of my strengths which gives me confidence to think bigger than I ever have. She pinpoints my fears and works through them with me so that they no longer stand in the way as obstacles. Simone is one of the best active listeners I’ve ever come across. She encourages me to look deeper into my own stories which introduces new thought patterns and problem solving strategies. I feel empowered in our conversations because Simone creates the space and gives agency for me to talk about whatever I know will be most useful at that given time."
~ Callie Waldman, CEO, castiron
"As a single founder of a growing business my coaching sessions with Simone are like having a business partner to bounce ideas off of and get honest, creative, and positive feedback, which stretches me and my company. Having the set coaching sessions also allows me to set aside quality time to reflect, strategize and plan for the future. To be able to go through this process with somebody with the kind of training Simone has, has been invaluable to my business."
