Episode 71: Frankie Simmons on Personal Development, Healing, & Magic
This week on A Braver Brand, as a part of our autumn our maternity leave series, I’m overwhelmingly thrilled to be sharing my conversation with my friend - and repeat guest! - Frankie Simmons.
Frankie is an Intuitive Business and Life Coach helping high-achieving magic-makers quit burnout do what they love with more ease, success, and fun.
In this episode, Frankie and I talk all about…
The life events - from illness to a toxic relationship to her own self-aware realization - that conspired and inspired her to quit school, go freelance, and launch her business
Looking back on how the detours led us to where we are today
How Frankie’s foray into personal development radically changed her health in totally unexpected ways - and how when we pursue healing in one area, we typically find ourselves getting better in other areas of our lives and work
Where she started in her personal development - and the modalities of healing that helped transform Frankie’s internal world
What it was like to witness her own healing - and the relationship she has been building with her own body
Reframing non-negotiables in her business - and how she’s built her business on a foundation of joy, health, and sustainability
How she’s using the tools of personal development in her own work with clients
With each guest, I ask them the same thing: Who or what makes you feel your bravest? Here’s Frankie’s response.
“I feel my most brave sometimes when I am really doing what I want, how I want, and being who I want, because that definitely wasn’t the mentality that I was raised with. I grew up with a lot of different sticky beliefs around what selflessness looked like and what it looked like to love other people. Seeing myself prove to myself that I get to be who I want to be and I get to pursue my desires and that that actually works out for the betterment of everybody was such a scary process. Now, every time I see myself get to do that a little bit more fully and with a little bit less hesitation, it definitely makes me feel super, super brave.”
