How (self) trust + experimentation = CEO success with Simone McNish

Oh, gorgeous listener… you are in for a special treat today, and that’s because I have the pleasure of speaking with the incomparable Simone McNish on the show.  Whether you have been consuming her awesome Instagram content for years, the past few months, or will become a brand-new fan today, trust me when I tell you that this is an episode that you’re going to want to bookmark and listen to time and time again. 

Simone is a badass business coach and the CEO of Simone McNish Coaching, which provides premium coaching to a diverse group of successful clients.  And just four and a half months ago, Simone was still side hustling… but now, she’s a full-fledged entrepreneur and she’s already had such an amazing and wild ride in her business. 

And we unpacked a LOT in our conversation.  From the side hustle, to the bittersweet-ness that came with her recent big business boom, to running a more inclusive business to protecting your time and your boundaries… Trust me when I tell you that you don’t want to miss the lessons, stories, and insights she brings to you today. 

More specifically, we leave no stone unturned as we talk about:

  • How Simone turned a layoff in April – at the start of her second trimester of pregnancy – into an entrepreneur success story 
  • The lessons in client management that changed the course of her business
  • How her expertise in diversity in entrepreneurship helped catapult her to five figures in a single month …and why she still has mixed feelings about it
  • How she is shifting her business model to work for her instead of chasing shiny objects
  • Her warning about moving the success goalpost, what it will do for your mindset – and what to focus on instead
  • Why having a few pathway offerings not only makes you a more inclusive entrepreneur, but a better (and wealthier) one
  • How her transparency in business and what she’s testing comes from a place of service – and inspires others
  • What’s she’s piloting next in her business and why it excites her
  • Why TRUST – in yourself, in your clients, in your business will be your North Star in your entrepreneurial journey
