I performed at clubs, colleges, theatres, and festivals nationally and internationally for 6 years, and was featured on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly, Fuse’s Stand Up And Deliver, FOX’s Laughs and Punchline, and I co-wrote and appeared in Lifetime’s Bad Tutor (did that one for my mom). I co-produced and co-hosted one of the most popular independent comedy shows in the Los Angeles area called The Nine Drink Minimum - a casual BYOB event featuring some of the biggest names in comedy. I also enjoyed some walk-on roles in various films, and co-created and co-starred in an award-winning web series. As my farewell to stand-up comedy, I executive produced the docu-comedy special, Love at First Cousin.
I co-host a comedic self-improvement podcast with two of my hilarious friends, Kelsey Cook and Taylor Tomlinson, called Self-Helpless - a top charting show with millions of downloads. Special guests include a variety of celebrities, experts, and Helpsters (this is what our listeners call themselves). Self-Helpless has been featured on Conan, The Tonight Show, Popsugar, and The Stand-Up Magazine. I recently launched a solo podcast for business owners and entrepreneurs called E-ficionado - all about how to utilize a minimalist approach to business for higher impact, revenue, and more free time. E-ficionado has been featured in Renewed Awareness Magazine and has been frequenting the top Entrepreneur charts since episode 1!
I had this strange hobby, that started as a happy accident at a holiday party, where I turned my loved ones, objects, characters, and celebrities into tasteful penis caricatures (aka dickartoons) that I hand-painted on coffee mugs (and of course each piece of art had a killer pun - Dong Swanson, Kim Karshaftian, Strawberry Shortcock just to name a few). I did this as a hobby for some fun side cash for about 3 years before launching it as a "real" business where I dickified my customers. During the run of this humorous custom art biz I called Dicks by Delanie, I scaled DBD from a product-based business to a digital product business with a very talented team of cartoonists. Our customers would put their digital art on totes, shirts, mugs, pillows, cakes, invitations, etc. Dicks by Delanie was featured on Voyage LA, Bertcast, Controlled Chaos with Josh Wolf, and my team and I had the pleasure of dickifying several celebs and public figures. Conan (Conads O'Brien) was even gifted a dick mug! What more could a girl want in life?
My clients have been featured on Oprah, The New York Times Best Seller List, The View, Conan, The Tonight Show, Comedy Central, Getting Doug with High, Zola, Wedding Chicks, Origin Magazine, Anthropologie, SFMOMA and they've collaborated with beasts like The Chicago White Sox and Universal Music Group. They've also pivoted careers, tripled their income, built and grown an engaged community, hit the top iTunes charts, booked leading roles, launched passion projects, left their day jobs, and have been told that they're changing lives (no big deal).
What's up! I'm Delanie - Simplicity Coach to entrepreneurs, business owners, and podcasters. WTF is a Simplicity Coach? It's like if a business consultant, mindset coach, and minimalist had a very helpful baby (who probably swears too much). I also co-host a top charting comedic self-improvement podcast with millions of downloads called Self-Helpless, and recently launched a new podcast for entrepreneurs, business owners, freelancers, and artists called E-ficionado that has been frequenting the top entrepreneur charts since episode 1.
My passion for conscious consumption, running sh*t like a well-oiled machine, and my former life as a stand-up comedian, greatly influence the way I coach. I help overwhelmed entrepreneurs restructure and grow their businesses and passion projects by utilizing minimalism, so they can enjoy a business that fuels their life - not sucks the life out of them. We focus on removing excess, freeing up time, prioritizing enjoyment and quality over quantity, leveraging and incorporating their unique background, skill set, and interests, growing with purpose, and of course all the other logistics involved with maintaining and scaling. I offer no BS guidance to my clients. I’m not afraid to open up and share my personal experiences, failures, and strategies in order to fast-track their success.
After 7 years in the entertainment industry and the worst bout of career burnout and shiny object syndrome I had experienced (plus a lifetime of perfectionism, overachieving, and compulsive working), I was compelled to drop the many tasks that were draining me. I guess being involved in 6ish different things on top of a full-time job will do that to ya! Although I had experience with many entrepreneurial projects and side hustles within entertainment my first attempt at launching a business that would allow me the kind of creative control and freedom I had been seeking, was called Dicks by Delanie, a humorous custom art business where we turned our customers into penis cartoons (I know, pretty nuts - pun intended).
In less than a year, I was able to leave my soul-crushing corporate day job to run my d*ck biz full-time. None of that would have been possible if I hadn't redistributed all the time and energy I had been spending across 6 different avenues, and instead, poured all of that into one, intentional plan. That's when I first fell in love with business simplicity, and it's only grown (big time) since. As I scaled Dicks by Delanie, artists, entrepreneurs, and performers started asking for my help with making their dream jobs a reality, and bringing their ideas to fruition, which led me to what I do now. My clients' feedback about our time together had a very clear theme that I hadn't been aware of - basically, the word simple kept coming up over and over again to describe my approach to helping them with their work. So, I took on the title of Simplicity Coach, because who better than my own clients to name what I do?
I’ve built a career that I love, without: complicated systems, a huge social media following or email list, paid ads, prior business or marketing experience, and I am NOT tech savvy. If you have an idea for a project but don’t know where the f*ck to start, or you want to turn your hobby into a business but you’re overwhelmed by the pressure of creating daily content for allll the platforms, or maybe you’ve been in business a while but have hit a plateau and you’re feeling burnt out and indecisive - you have landed in the right place.
You don’t have to do things the way everyone else does them. You can take an approach that feels fun and simple for you. If I was able to sell d*ck pics for a living, you can do anything.
In my free time, you might find me spooning my rescue dog Maverick, rockin' out to Tenacious D, being way too excited about a thrift store sundress, sipping hot chai tea on a patio, and taking walks with my wonderful life partner, Cam, who I enjoy making fun of for playing Fortnite with 13 year-olds.
