My guest this week is Jenny Nuccio, a mom, wife, coach, mentor, and founder and CEO of Imani Collective. What first started as a non-profit training program has developed into a social enterprise and holistic women’s empowerment program in Mombasa, Kenya.
Jenny started going to Kenya when she was 18 and started Imani Collective at 21. She didn't have mentors along the way and humbly entered every door asking countless questions. Her journey felt extremely lonely and she realized so many others were in her shoes.
Jenny wants women to not only come alive in who they are but also realize that they are fully capable of chasing their dreams.
Jenny is a good friend of mine and was on the show in April 2021. Listen to her previous episode.

My expertise is the social enterprise world.
I’m always fighting against that narrative of quick relief. How are we doing empowerment and development that is actually aiding communities for the long term?
What are you doing to radially listen and create change?
When you’re young, you have audacious bravery.
