Simon Stanley is an energetic, vibrant digital entrepreneur with an insatiable thirst for life; he thrives on unlocking life experiences and sharing his learning journey with others.
In his early years working for £3.75 an hour on minimum wage, his dream was to become a professional human beatboxer. He began performing at different venues, and competed in the 2010 UK beatbox championships in an attempt to get recognized, however it became evident that wasn’t the path he was destined for.
In following his inner-voice, Simon began travelling the world and documenting his own breakthroughs and life experiences in video form.
