I’m beyond thrilled to bring you an episode with a real game-changer today—Hope Powell. Hope Powell is no stranger to breaking barriers. She's a football icon who's shattered glass ceilings at every turn, from playing to coaching. She was the first woman to achieve a Pro License and the first black person to be named coach of any English National Football Team. But beyond her trailblazing accomplishments, she’s an advocate for diversity, inclusion, and fighting adversity.

In today's episode, we're diving into Hope's incredible journey. You'll learn about her transition from a young player defying stereotypes to a managerial powerhouse in football. We'll talk about the glass cliff, the audacity to be a leader, and how to stay true to yourself even when you're the first in the room. So sit tight, get ready to be inspired and let's get into it.

Wow, what an incredible journey Hope Powell has had. From facing adversity at every corner to turning those challenges into motivational fuel, she is the epitome of resilience and determination. I hope her story inspires you to chase your dreams, regardless of the hurdles that stand in your way.

And that's a wrap! If you know someone who would benefit from today's wisdom, share this episode with them now. Keep up with the latest from Wanna Be by following us on your favourite podcast player and Instagram @contentisqueenhq.
