Simon T. Bailey is no stranger to success, even though he’s quite familiar with failure.
At a young age, Simon was turned down for multiple sports teams-but he didn’t let that stop him.
He left his first college after just one year and moved into a low-income neighborhood. His path took him to a high-level role, which he transitioned away from when it became clear his days as an employee there were numbered.
But in every situation, Simon was constantly searching for a way to use what he was truly passionate about– helping others to discover their inner brilliance.
Simon is unafraid to transform himself, to recognize the need to evolve. He understands this means putting yourself out there and potentially failing.
He spends this episode sharing his experiences and dropping life-changing perspectives on how you can help yourself grow, forgive others, and take responsibility for pursuing your dreams and find success.

Podcast of the Year!
I listen to tons of podcasts in lots of genres, and although there are many ‘interview-style’ podcasts out there, few are jam-packed with as many takeaways as The Wedding Biz. I only discovered it towards the end of 2019 and I’ve been quickly working my way through the back catalogue. Andy has such a great interview style and provides so much value to everyone working in the wedding industry. As a photographer/film-maker, I’ve taken away so much. Definitely my podcast of the year.
Yes, the wedding biz is definitely different from all other business. Thank you for sharing all these experiences!
Great Interviewer and Interviewees!
The commentary between Andy and his guests is always flawless and so smooth – you can tell he works in audio 😉 I always appreciate his conversational lead to keep his guest’s words flowing and keep his listeners on our feet for more! Likewise, unlike some other podcast hosts that try to take the limelight at any moment, Andy keeps his ego in check at all times and gives his guests the proper treatment and time to share their thoughts. I look forward to his podcasts every week, and makes driving/treadmilling so much more enjoyable and productive haha
One of the Best Wedding Podcasts
Thank you for your incredible interviews, Andy!
Just started listening to this podcast a few days ago, and as someone just starting out in the wedding planning industry, this is exactly what I needed! Andy is so down-to-earth, really knows how to converse with his guests, he’s super personable. Clearly, he has put a lot of time and effort into his work, and has spoken to so many icons in the business! Amazing work Andy, thank you!! ✨
