I’m really excited about today’s guest, Danone Simpson, the founder and CEO of one of the 25 Fastest Growing Insurance Companies in Los Angeles.
While I was preparing for this interview, I found another cool new tidbit of information about Danone; did you ever watch the TV show, Dallas? Danone played the secretary (Kendall) on the show! When I was in college, this was my favorite time of the week. I’d grab a bag of Doritos and a Big Gulp, plop down in my bean bag chair in my dorm room and forget about tests and term papers.
Today, Danone is an extremely accomplished businesswoman, being selected by Forbes Magazine as one of their “Women in Power” in Southern California.
On today’s show, Danone shares a story about how she “begged” her way to the front of a casting call (there was a line of 250 women in front of her). She also shares her best action step to gain momentum in business, how her company became No. 1 in the “Best Place to Work 2017: Small Companies” in the Los Angeles Business Journal, how being an actress on a hit show helped her become a better business owner, how she manages cash flow, plus much more.
