I'm Simon, a speaker and trainer.
I was adopted at 5 weeks old and told about it so young I can't remember not knowing.
All went pretty well apart from suffering some merciless bullying during childhood and fear about failure in business as an adult.
I found out at 40 that my teddy bear was a gift from my birth mother.
This led to some very intense anger about being unloved and not good enough.
So I got into personal development to find happiness, eventually sold my publishing business to help others.
I started working with kids in 2013 - running fun activity workshops with 1600 youngsters to inspire them to be happy, confident and make their dreams come true.
I then decided to share what I've learned with parents and professionals so I could make more of a difference.
I started talking at online events in the UK, USA and Australia and my podcast.
I want us all to thrive
I wrote Jack Cherry and The Juicer to share the secret to happiness with children. The Activity Book builds on that with fun puzzles and quizzes to help them choose their mood. Jack Cherry's Recipe for SATs Success helps children be more confident so they can do their best in tests.
