About Simone and Eden
Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself and your work and business?
I have a full-time job as a school counselor and another part-time job as a therapist. My brand is about feeling loved and valued, and I am excited to have the resources of IBN to help spread that message even more.
I am an office manager who became a life and personal coach because I believe in the power of overcoming limiting beliefs that have held people back from pursuing their life's purpose.
Q: Why do you feel you are a good scholarship recipient candidate?
I am a lifelong learner and know how to embrace new information and use it to innovate. I would love mentorship from IBN on the ins and outs of my business.
I strongly desire to connect with people who work to create a more unified environment for everyone to live and thrive in. As an entrepreneur, I strive to access resources like IBN that will teach me more about industry education and best practices. I would like to take the leap of faith to leave a full-time job that is holding me back from full-time work empowering people to pursue their dreams.

Apply for IBN's Maker Scholarship
The Indie Business Network offers a valuable and transformative experience, and we recognize that not everyone has the resources to access our suite of entrepreneurial mentoring, coaching, and training services, especially when they are first starting out. To help offset the challenge for as many as possible, each quarter, we offer a scholarship for a year of membership and private one-on-one email coaching with me.
At the Indie Business Network, we believe that every woman can provide for herself and her children because she can sell something she made with her own hands. If you have started your business, but lack the resources needed to grow, you can apply for next quarter's Maker Scholarship Award at this link.
