I started posting makeup tutorials on YouTube at the age of 14 not knowing where it would lead me. Fast forward 10 years, I now find myself as a Lifestyle & Wellness Vlogger, Podcast Host to “Manifest with Tori DeSimone”, Creator and Founder of The Manifest Planner, Owner and Instructor of 2 boutique fitness studios, Stride Spin and Fitness, and a girl in her 20’s trying to figure it all out while doing so.
I love sharing my life online as I believe I am no different than you reading this page. I share my journey to inspire others to live their best lives through practices such as manifestation, wellness, and organization. I’m so glad you found my website and I hope you stick around for a while!
Born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA to a family of entrepreneurs, I have always found myself drawn to being my own boss. I remember being 8 years old, wanting to grow up to be a nail technician and my Grandpa saying to me “Tori, it’s great that you want to do nails, but you should own the nail salon”. This mentality has stuck with me ever since. I began posting Makeup Tutorials on YouTube when I was 14 because I loved makeup, and why not?! It was not the platform it is today, but rather just a place of organic posting for the fun of it.
When I turned 16 is when YouTube really started to pick up for me. I quickly found myself traveling the world for makeup conventions, YouTube events, and opportunities I could have never dreamed of. At the age of 17, I moved to LA to pursue a full time career of content creation (before that was even an official thing), and I quickly realized I needed more. I moved home to Philly a few short months later, and quikcly developed a passion for working out, but specifically spin classes. I loved how it made me feel and I wanted to give that feeling to as many people as possible.
At the age of 19, I began instructing Spin Classes and decided to go out on my own with a co-worker of mine to open our very own Spin Studio. At the age of 20, Stride Spin and Fitness in Phoenixville, PA was born and by the age of 21, in 2020 (of all years), Stride had grown to its second location at no place other than the Jersey Shore.
Through all this time, as my interests and hobbies have grown and evolved with me, two things have always remained constant; my love for planning/organization, and my love for sharing the message that anyone can do what I am doing. I began my Podcast, Manifest with Tori DeSimone, in May of 2019 to share my journey, my message, and how you can do it too. This podcast has evolved into a lifestyle and wellness podcast with focus in entrepreneurship, manifestation, and productivity. It was in one of my episodes that I mentioned that I one day wanted to create the perfect line of Planners that I felt didn’t exist. Planners that had it all; the organization, the goal setting, the to-do lists, daily manifestations, and so much more. Thus, the Manifest Planner was born. My latest venture and newest baby.
At the end of the day, I am a 24 year old girl just very much so trying to figure it all out! I remain authentic on all my social platforms to share a positive message that hopefully leaves people feeling inspired when they leave any of my platforms. Thank you for reading and supporting me throughout the years!
Manifest with Tori DeSimone is a lifestyle podcast with a focus in manifestation, wellness, organization, and entrepreneurship. Manifest with Tori DeSimone listeners can look forward to new episodes every Monday that will leave them inspired and driven to tackle their week ahead, while walking away with tangible tools to apply in their lives.
