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!

Simi was positive and personable. It was really interesting hearing about how much she accomplished in such a dramatic way in only 100 days. I took a lot of notes during her presentation since there were so many takeaways about how she reinvented herself. She gave me a lot to think about regarding how I can apply her experiences to my life.

You want to book this experience with Simi. Her story telling is so engaging, you can't help but stop and stare. Her journey is incredible and so inspiring. My team really appreciated it and will for awhile. Something truly special.

Why did I book this experience ? I was attracted by Simidele's amazing story and courage, by her positive, radiant aura and the title of the experience. I need(ed) more inspiration in these crazy times. Indeed Simi is such a vibrant, engaging and lovely person with a great sense of humor, telling her incredible story and giving me new thoughts, input and the feeling that I can (also) influence the direction of my life. I enjoyed every minute of the conversation and it felt almost like talking to a friend. Finally I left feeling very motivated and excited. Now I ask myself: What's my goal in life ? How can I achieve it ? (before I kept asking myself: When will Covid and the lockdown end ? I can't influence that. I was also influenced by all the negative people around me + I felt somehow paralyzed). It's time to leave my comfort zone. So - highly recommended if you want more sparkle (or sparkle more ;-) in your life !

Simi was just wonderful. I gifted Simi's Experience for my mother's birthday as a way for us to connect. Simi made it all worth far more than the actual cost. She's an inspiration and her program is thoughtful, humble, knowledgeable, and kind. Both my mother and me have discussed what we learned and how we are going to try to implement some of our learnings. Simi also gained two HUGE fans on her Skeleton journey.
