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.
Bob’s special guest is both directly and indirectly responsible for billions of dollars worth of referred business per year. (Over $14.2 Billion in 2018 alone!) CNN even called him the “Father of Modern Networking.” He’s also authored 23 books, and when you think of Dr. Ivan Misner, Founder of BNI (Business Network International) you probably think about…business. His newest book however, “Who’s in Your Room?: The Secret to Creating Your Best Life” is not focused on business. And as Bob, a huge fan of Dr. Misner says, “This might just be his most important book yet! (And that’s saying a LOT!)
Influential Detachment is a very special topic for Bob because he considers some of his biggest and most devastating failures in life to have been very connected with the amount of emotional “attachment” he felt to that which he desired. Once he became aware of the destructiveness of attachment, he then began to work on this issue and saw amazing results. Does he still struggle with it? He’s the first one to say, “Absolutely!” The difference is with awareness he’s able to take the proper steps and move into Positive (and Influential) Detachment, which is what he’ll share with you today. It’s a very thought-provoking episode!
Megan DiMartino is a self-described “New York Girl living deep in the heart of Texas.” She’s also one of the “Awesome Austins” that Bob often refers to — a group of Austin-based entrepreneurs who are just forces of nature in terms of entrepreneurship, building businesses, and helping others attain the success that they’ve attained. Megan is a lifelong creator of beauty with a serving, mentoring spirit. As a single mother, she founded and developed two revolutionary skincare product lines: Glycolique and Novita Spa Clinicals. These result-oriented products have been sold through salons, spas and medical spas since 1992.
