Episode 71: Frankie Simmons on Personal Development, Healing, & Magic

Frankie Simmons on Personal Development, Healing, & Magic | A Braver Brand with Kate K. McCarthy

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.”
