We had the good fortune of connecting with Simone Adrianne and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Simone, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
For me owning my own business was about legacy building, it was about freedom, and being able to control my most valuable asset…my time. Becoming a business owner is the only way the I am able to remove any limitations for my earning potential. In my mind it is the only way.
What should our readers know about your business?
I am the Owner of S.A.B Global Enterprise, LLC the parent company for Overcoming Her, Overcoming Him, SimoneAdrianne.com, & The Ultimate Business Planner. S.A.B Global Enterprise, LLC was legalized in 2019 and hold all of my brands that people have come to know and love. Overcoming Her & Overcoming Him are personal development brands created to help a person get out of their own way, it was created to empower the ambitious women or man on their journey to greatness by providing tools and resources in the area of Mindset Mastery, Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship, & Relationship Readiness. The are the key areas of life that I believe have the greatest impact in transformation and understanding how to turn any obstacle a person has had to face in their life into an opportunity. SimoneAdrianne.com is my personal brand, my self-published book Refusing to Quit “Key Principles to Overcome Life Challenges” along with the ability to work with me in the capacity of coach in my signature program “The Launch Pad” a 12 week incubator the takes a new idea or concept and provided the business owner with the framework to launch successfully, or in my monthly mentorship “The Morning Meetup” where a business owner get to start their day with intention by working on the business instead of in it. Lastly, this is also where you can book me to speak for events and conferences. The Ultimate Business Planner is a full stationary product line to help the busy entrepreneur stay focus and productive. This business will be launching Q3 2021. My newest venture is Emerson Group Holdings, LLC the parent company for The Emerson Group Creative Consulting Agency, The Emerson Group Real Estate Development, & The Emerson Group Venture Capital. Now this new business structure is what’s going to make me a Billionaire and here is why…. All of these brand and businesses will have high revenue potential and will be strategic partnerships. You can get way further together then you can when you are alone. The Emerson Group Creative Consulting Agency is how I provide strategic business development plans for business owners ready to scale in to the multi six figure and seven figure mark. This is for businesses that are already in operation and are generating consist revenue they just need the guidance to go to the next level. So we offer Marketing & Branding, Product Development, Global Manufacturing and Sourcing, Financial Panning, Media & PR, and Event Planning. The Emerson Group Real Estate Development is where all of the real estate project and partnership are executed. My goal for the real estate development company is for multi family housing project (duplexes & apartment communities). We will be looking like purchasing, rehabbing, and holding or selling real estate assets to a long term investor. The Emerson Venture Capital is my Angel Investment firm. I have the luxury with working with some amazing entrepreneurs that have all the hustle, faith, and dedication to growing their businesses, often times the only thing they lack is the money to take it to the next level with strategic marketing campaigns. So through the venture capital firm we will be making investments in to their businesses in exchange for an equity stake. But this is only offered to or even considered with business owners that are Emerson Group Consulting clients it is not open to the public. I am most proud of the impact that I have been able to make on the world. I have literally been able to transform some of my greatest challenges in life into multi seven figure businesses. The joinery to get here has included tons of personal development and professional development. Not only have I invented in year of formal education from a Bachelors degree in Marketing to a MBA in International Business and Supply Chain Management. I have my sights on a PHD in Consumer Behavior next…I have always been a seeker of knowledge and even in my darkest times I looked for the lesson to learn in every situation. The journey has not been easy but it has definitely been worth it. I have been an entrepreneur since the age of 21, I am now 34. I thought I new what I was doing in my 20’s but in reality that was just my preparation phase. That was where I was learning the skill set of an entrepreneur and developing the discipline. The things that I know now in my 30’s with the continued investment in my knowledge has turned me into a business expert. You can place me in any business model, and industry, any market and I can make the business a success. The way that I have been able to overcome the challenges is that I just did give up…I embraces them. I know that may sounds very cliche but it is the truth. I have been through it all. Failed business, failed relationships, negative bank accounts, 13 month incarcerations but I never gave up on myself and my dreams. Which is why my debut, self- published book is titled Refusing to Quit. I want to show the world what it looks like when you don’t give up on yourself. When life has dealt you a fair share of challenges but you rise above them all to live the life you desire to live. The lessons I learn are never ending I make it a point to learn something new daily. But the most valuable one I can say has to be, to have a relationship with the creator, regardless of your religious beliefs develop a solid relationship there and listen to the direction you are being called to. My life changed drastically when I made the decision to be obedient to the assignment that God had for me instead of trying to do life my own way. I want the world to know that anything is possible as long as you believe and then do the work. I am no different than you. I am a product of a household where my father abused drugs, I had my first child at the age of 16, I overcame domestic abuse, went to prison for 13 month because of a business bad business decision, and through it all I am still here standing. I just want to be a witness to the world what it looks like when you follow your purpose and live in your assignment everyday.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Wow this is a tough question for me because I am such a home body. I focus on my family and business majority of the time. But I am definitely a Foodie, I love great food so a week long adventure in my city would look like hitting all the hot black owed restaurants that are here in the city. So The Turkey Leg Hut, Lucille’s, Taste Bar & Kitchen just to name a few. We would also do a little shopping and visit the Houston Galleria and have spa days at some of my favorite spots. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to my amazing husband, Zackery Emerson. Because of you I am able to show up in my business every single day with the level of discipline and focus needed to make an impact on the world. The protection and covering that you provide allows me to not have to worry about my basic needs being met, which in turns give me the space to go out and be the absolute best version of myself. I would also like to shoutout my team over at Overcoming Her, what we do there is purpose driven work and I wouldn’t be able to see type of results that we have been able to achieve without you all.
