Leading with Heart: Lessons from Simon T. Bailey's Latest Book

5 - thought leadership content creation Apr 06, 2023

Simon T. Bailey is my former Disney colleague, and I can't wait for him to share his entrepreneurial journey!

He had four jobs over seven years at Disney, including parking event sales, selling the Braves spring training, handling international wholesale, and being the Sales Director for the Disney Institute. During his time at Disney, Simon was interviewed by a journalist and stated that he saw himself in 10-15 years as the President and CEO of the Walt Disney World Resort and eventually the Chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company. This statement caused an uproar with his superior! 

Today, Simon has been an entrepreneur in the content distribution business for nearly twenty years. He started by hiring an instructional designer and investing in developing content. He has since branched out into speaking, coaching, writing books, creating online courses, and licensing content. His main focus is creating content once and using it to create multiple revenue streams. 

Tune into the interview to hear about Simon's journey as an entrepreneur and his new book, Ignite The Power of Women in Your Life!

His new book discusses:

  • Living in relationships that are whole, genuine, and open.
  • Understanding how and why men think the way they do.
  • Being your best, most-vulnerable self.
  • Celebrating and connecting with the women in your life more meaningfully than ever before.
  • Creating new opportunities — and even new definitions — for success.

In this episode, you'll hear:

  • Simon's roles at Disney
  • Why he decided to leave Disney and how he gained the courage to leave
  • What inspired him to become a leadership coach and speaker
  • The importance of living a purpose-driven life. 
  • His new book and why igniting the power of women interested him
  • What gave Simon the courage to be open with his story and struggle
