A few years ago, at a women’s empowerment luncheon, Simone Knego was listening to a motivational speaker she admired and thought, ‘That will never be me.’ But then she realized, that’s the whole point. You’re not supposed to be someone else. You’re supposed to be YOU. So, what if we all stopped comparing ourselves to others and chose, instead, to embrace and build on what we already have going for us?
Simone is the writer and keynote speaker behind The Extraordinary UnOrdinary You, a platform that helps people realize what we’re capable of and recognize what we already do to inspire others. As a wife, mother of six and serial entrepreneur, Simone leads what she calls ‘an ordinary life filled with extraordinary moments.’ And she shares that unique journey in her bestselling book, The Extraordinary UnOrdinary You: Follow Your Own Path, Discover Your Own Journey.
On this episode of Wickedly Smart Women, Simone joins Anjel to discuss her do-what-you-love approach to business and describe her willingness to evolve into the next entrepreneurial venture she wants to pursue. She explains what inspired she and her husband to have three biological children and adopt three more, sharing the strategy she uses to say NO to the things that don’t serve her or her family. Listen in for Simone’s insight on starting each day with positivity and learn how to change not who you are but the way you see yourself—and make a positive impact on the world!
