What you'll do

Reinvention is essential for personal growth and evolution, but it's not always easy to achieve—especially now. To help you navigate this process, I'll share the transformational blueprint from my 100-day journey to becoming both the first African woman and the first black woman to compete in the Olympic skeleton—a sport I had no prior experience in and one in which athletes hurl themselves headfirst on a sled down an icy hill at 80 miles an hour.

In this interactive experience designed to invite courage and resilience, I'll teach you the valuable lessons I learned in those 100 days—a time when I had returned to competitive sport after a nearly ten-year retirement. Find a comfy spot in your house and I'll walk you through how I reignited my original dream of competing in track and field at the Summer Olympics. Then, we'll explore different ways of overcoming fears, defying naysayers, and shattering perceptions.

Imagine your limitless possibilities with an Olympian as I confidently guide you through this experience and help you push your limits and find your inner strength.

*This experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.

In 2018, I made Olympic history at the Winter Games, becoming the first African and Black woman to compete in Olympic skeleton. When I discovered that no African woman had ever competed in the Olympic skeleton, I saw an opportunity to take action.

I'm currently training for the 2022 Olympic Games and I also inspire audiences around the world. I've appeared in leading media outlets such as CNN, NBC, ESPN, USA Today, Essence, Forbes, and Sports Illustrated and the New York Times has hailed me as “a role model for Africa and beyond.”

Audiences have described my live experiences as being “captivating” and “highly actionable” with a "contagious energy and passion.” And now, I'm bringing my inspirational tips directly to your home with this Online Experience!

I thoroughly enjoyed the session with Simi. She was authentic, passionate and her story was inspiring. I walked away motivated to go after my dreams. I absolutely recommend her and look forward to booking her for a client or team building event.

This was an amazing experience! Simi has such an inspirational story of personal reinvention, and did a fantastic job incorporating practical takeaways throughout that are relevant to anyone (even if you don’t plan to become an Olympian!). I left feeling motivated and excited to accelerate progress on some of my own personal goals. Thank you, Simi!

Simi was engaging throughout and asked attendees questions too, which really involve everyone. She also did a great job sharing her story, incorporating visuals and video clips too, to keep everything interesting and helped relate it all to how we can take action now towards reinventing ourselves too based on individual goals. This was a really great experience!

Simi's smile and genuine interest in her audience draws you in. Her engaging stories and insider scoop to the world of Olympic skeleton keep you on the edge of your seat. Her passion for sport and life turn you into an instant fan.

Listen, this current social distancing/work from home/quarantine reality can make it hard to feel motivated or inspired. This experience is the antidote. Simi's story is absolutely fascinating and inspirational. This is a great first step in making a big (or small) change in your life in an effort to do what you love. This experience is great option for individuals, families, groups of friends. I know a few other people who've attended a session with Simi and we had a great time discussing what we learned and the different chapters in her journey that spoke to us individually. A few of us have even committed to working together to set goals for the next 100 days and check in and encourage each other throughout the process!
