032 Influential IMPERIA
Bob’s special guest’s first claim to fame was as a well-known culinary expert, having created the world’s first food podcast channel and flying around the planet making programs about chefs and winemakers. Yes, she was totally living her dream.
But some things changed, including a debilitating illness that made it difficult for Jennifer to physically even get out of bed. What *would* get her out of bed? A mission bigger than anything she’d ever considered before.
In this episode Bob welcomes his great friend and one of his heroes, Jennifer Iannolo. Whether speaking at the United Nations, Harvard University, or on tour for the U.S. State Department, her mission is to foster empowerment in women around the world. As the founder of IMPERIA she has created a global incubator to bring together the world’s change-makers in one very powerful conversation.
Some of the topics Bob and Jennifer Iannolo discuss are:
- Her journey from having the perfect career to losing everything to sickness…and how she came back stronger than ever!
- The literal meaning of IMPERIA and why she chose this to represent the organization’s world-wide mission of empowerment.
- Why understanding that “No one is coming” might just be the most empowering thing you can know. (Hint: *permission* for you to overcome obstacles and succeed is not necessary!)
- Important issues below the surface that must be addressed.
- Jennifer’s work with the U.S. State Department and the United Nations.
- The immense importance of female role models.
- And more!
