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.

"The ROI I received made the investment more than worth it"

Today one year ago is the moment that my life started to change for good: I attended two of your masterclasses plus a 1-1 coaching taster, and was fully convinced. I signed up for 3 months of coaching, an investment that cost me an arm and a leg at the time. But the return on the investment I received, made it all worth it. 

 

What has changed?

I started my own company, quit my previous job, wrote my second book, created and started giving my own trainings, I collaborate on trainings for other companies, bought myself a ring to celebrate all the big steps I took, and I have established a position of authority in my field. I constantly do things out of my comfort zone, I challenge thoughts that keep me small, I acknowledge my giftedness and my quest for balance between action and relaxation, I listen to what my feelings tell me, and I trust my intuition, even if it makes me do scary things. 

In short; thank you for being the fuel for my growth. You gave, and still give, me wings!

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, go on a public speaking tour, and fulfill one of my biggest dreams: to work on ships in Antarctica.

 

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