Episode 117 - Shining your light - from CIA to CEO with Rupal Patel and Jojo Fraser

It's time for a mojo injection, jump into the cave and feel lighter.  This week we talk about shining your light and stepping into your power.


From war zones to boardrooms, New York-born and London-based Rupal Patel has often been the only woman in ultra-high-octane, Alpha-male environments. After a thrilling career at the CIA, she started her first six-figure business from scratch almost 10 years ago. Combining the business savvy gained along the way with her CIA training, she now helps startup founders, corporate leaders, and innovation-focused companies think bigger, lead better, and be bolder.


Leveraging her Ivy-League education, MBA degree, and CIA training, Rupal combines industry-leading theory with tactical experience to engage everyone from boardroom executives to bootstrapping founders. Rupal’s work on identity-driven leadership helps new and seasoned leaders delve deep into their identity so they can leverage their unique strengths, uncover blindspots, and become better, more effective, and more fulfilled in the process. Her powerful perspectives on resilience, adaptability, mindset, and growth are invaluable for founders and leaders who want off-the-beaten-path insights to help them think bigger, lead better, and be bolder.


Rupal has been called a “power woman” by Harper’s Bazaar, been appointed Entrepreneur in Residence at London Business School, and is currently working on a book titled From CIA to CEO.
