We had the good fortune of connecting with Simon Cellard and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Simon, how has your work-life balance changed over time?
This is a huge discussion of itself but I personally work full-time outside of my social media business which means this leaves me with running my pages, producing the content, posting, replying to people, managing brand deals, photoshoot and more on my off-time alone. People don’t realize how difficult it is to do both which is why most end up just doing one or the other. I still have to have my personal life, take care of my dogs, spend time with my fiancée, plan my wedding, clean my house, and so much more which basically working 24/7. Only doing what you love allows you to do so much.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I create original, daily content that inspire other to be creative, successful and unique. Lots of people have told me negative comments along the way, judging me for what I do, criticizing electric cars and even worse, a gold one. Yet you start building a protective layer and that negativity just filters out and you continue doing you, building your own success. My page has over 2,100,000 followers and averages 10M views a month.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I have a couple of spots in Paradise Valley, & Scottsdale where you can see the entire valley from viewpoints. Especially during sunset. I drive them up there and enjoy the fresh air and the views.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
All of the people that have helped me build my dream car are the reason I am here today. From the wrap company to my friend installing all my mods, my fiancée helping me film videos, and all of the brands sponsoring my content. They all helped me grow in this journey.
