Build Unshakeable Confidence From the Inside Out

Build Unshakeable Confidence From the Inside Out

Hi, I'm Simone.

International Speaker, Award-Winning Author & TEDx Speaker

As a busy mom of 6, working full-time and managing a bustling household, everyone always assumed I must’ve had my sh*t together. Nothing could have been further from the truth. The reality is I was riddled with self-doubt, second-guessed every decision I made and struggled accepting even basic compliments because I did not believe in myself.

It wasn’t until I was asked to do something that shook me out of my shell that things finally started to shift for me. Summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro at age 42 was both the hardest and best thing I’d ever done for myself. It taught me that we need to do the things that we think we cannot do, the things that seem impossible, because THAT is where true growth happens. 

After conquering what seemed like an “impossible” goal, I felt inspired and empowered to conquer all of my daily doubts: comparison, judgment, fear of what others will think of me… The decision to climb MY mountain of insecurities set me on the path to becoming the best version of myself and it changed all aspects of my life and my family’s life.

This is why I’m so passionate about helping women who struggle with self-doubt and identity build bold confidence and reach their full potential.

The REAL Method to Build Bold Confidence

So, how do we build unshakeable confidence and become unstoppable?

In the 10 years since summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro, I devoted myself to studying the transformation that I underwent so that I could boil it down to a simple (and repeatable) framework that I could share with others.

That is how the REAL Method was born. I discovered that there are four key areas that create unstoppable resilience, rock-solid boldness and unshakeable confidence.


Self-respect forms the foundation for how we treat ourselves and dictates the boundaries we set with others, impacting our overall well-being. If we don’t show respect to ourselves, how can we expect it from others?


Self-acceptance allows us to embrace the totality of who we are, including our strengths and accomplishments and our weaknesses and shortcomings, leading us to understand that failures are simply stepping stones to success.


Self-worth is the internal sense of your own value as a person, regardless of external validations or accomplishments. When we have strong self-worth, we feel more confident, make healthier choices, and build more positive relationships.


Self-love is the practice of appreciating and valuing yourself, which involves treating yourself with kindness and understanding, and prioritizing your own well-being and happiness. When we love the woman in the mirror we can navigate life with confidence and resilience.

Silence the inner critic. Embrace every opportunity. Achieve your dreams.

It's more than just having confidence; it's a profound sense of self-worth that positively affects all aspects of your life.
