My name is Telana Simpson. I’ve lived in Johannesburg for most of my life, except for my adventures in London and Sydney. I’m a Meta-Coach, and when I’m not helping transform people’s lives, I’m busy learning something new, taking time out with friends or talking to my 40 year old parrot.

I’ve skydived, scuba dived, eaten eel once, finished 3 Argus cycling races, loved and lost, started a business, inspired someone and been inspired.

My latest adventure was a thrilling micro light flight, which lead to adding “getting my micro light license” to my list of 101 things to do before I die- yes, I have such a list and have just over 80 goals so far, waiting to be achieved (trading a matchstick being one of them).

I love ceroc and salsa dancing, getting caught in the rain, decaf lattes, sitting on the roof watching the moon rise, good company, balloons, candles and conversations that leave a mark.

I have BHAG’s (big hairy audacious goals), a thirst for ideas, a creative undercurrent, and a deep interest in people and their passions.

My favourite song is “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone, all time best movie is the Matrix Trilogy followed by Moulin Rouge, and much-loved novel is “A bridge across forever” by Richard Bach.

    Wow the whole matchstick trading idea seems awesome. It really seems interesting to me.
    Just reading the webpage is cool. Its written in a way that everybody who reads it, can relate to it.
    Anyway, I'm sure that you'll do well with your idea.
