Q&A with Simon T. Bailey, Emcee of SUCCESS Live: Long Beach
What book are you reading right now?
Completing Capitalism: Heal Business to Heal the World by Bruno Roche and Jay Jakub
Did you do more talking or listening today?
More listening today, for sure.
Who was kind to you today?
David, my server at Seasons 52. He took care of me and my client. Most importantly he did it with joy.
I really wish ____ hadn’t been invented.
What is your favorite television show or guilty pleasure entertainment?
My guilty pleasure entertainment is watching reruns of Casino Royale. I love all things James Bond. The Notebook, I believe in love. And Coming to America, I can repeat at least 5-7 lines from the Eddie Murphy classic.
Describe your last life-changing moment.
Recently, I was on a trail ride and was thrown from a fast-galloping horse. I landed on my side and cracked a rib. This was actually the second time I’ve been thrown from a horse. My takeaway: Next time I’ll let go of the reins, instead of holding on tight. I am so glad to be alive and everything is healed.
What impact do you hope to have on the world?
50 years from now, billions of people are still talking about how to discover, release, and shift their brilliance.
