You have a deep drive, a smart mind, a hunger to learn, a thousand different interests, and a burning desire for more. Yet you feel unfulfilled. Deep down, you sense that you're different from those around you. No matter how hard you try, you struggle to fit in.

YOU REALIZE THAT SO FAR, YOU'VE NOT EVEN SHOWN HALF OF WHAT YOU'RE CAPABLE OF.

And when you imagine what life could be like if you showed up in your full potential, it scares you. Because that's how BIG your impact would be.

But it also excites you. It makes you feel endlessly curious... And you LOVE to follow your curiosity.

If you want to unlock your giftedness and start living the life you know you're meant to live, then you've arrived in the right place.

Hi there, I'm Simone

I'm a giftedness coach, a leader in life design for smart multi-talents, and founder of The Smart Rebel.

My giftedness journey came with many ups and downs. In primary school I was bullied because other kids noticed I was 'different'. In high school I was bored out of my mind and teachers were clueless as to what to do with me. I became depressed and ended up with severe school trauma.

Things changed when I started to channel my frustration into building my own educational path: I began to attend university at age fifteen, took courses abroad in Spain and founded a language cafe. After high school (and after solo-traveling the world, working as a sailor, and dropping out of college in Berlin...) I took on three full-time BA degrees and completed them all at once in three years' time - with cum laude results. 

These experiences taught me how to successfully create my own challenges and set my own course. I've since applied the same mindset to my career. This has led me to conduct award-winning research at the University of Cambridge, design new scientific methods, become a published writer, release a music album, and go on a public speaking tour.

 

Today, I coach some of the most talented people in the world from my current home base in Croatia.

I'M HERE TO HELP TURN YOUR SMARTNESS INTO YOUR SUPERPOWER

"I'm now doing things that, a year ago, I would've never even dared to dream of"

"Thanks to coaching, I've learnt to think differently, and more imaginatively, about my own abilities and what's possible for me. Through her patient and empathic guidance, Simone has given me the space, trust, and tools to take on new challenges that I didn't think were possible before. 

I've since started to apply my new skills and insights. As a result of this, I'm now doing things that, a year ago, I would've never even dared to dream of. Simone encouraged me and helped me apply to my dream job, something I never thought I'd get. And guess what? They offered me a position! I'm so grateful for Simone's inspiring coaching and the world of possibilities she has introduced me to."
