Most woman innovation speakers talk about innovation in theory, having read the information from books. Unlike other presenters, Jodi has real-life, in-the-trenches business experience. Wouldn’t you rather hear about real-life innovation, instead of receiving information from someone that wrote a book on the topic? Jodi is one of the only women innovation speakers that runs a million company which is manufacturing a product that she invented.

Jodi is also a scholar, possessing her Master’s Degree/PhD work in Business Psychology. She is an adept innovator and woman inventor who created a product, out of pure necessity, and turned it into an international sensation. Jodi has a working knowledge of sales, psychology, inventing, patents, trademarks, branding, packaging, marketing, logistics, distribution chains, and much more.

Jodi never let anyone stand in her way, sharing the same philosophy as Steve Jobs; “Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice,” Jobs once said. “And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” After losing her hair to a rare disorder, Jodi followed her heart and intuition, understanding that others shared the same challenges that she did. Jodi was just diagnosed with Idiopathic Subglottic Stenosis, a rare disease that causes the trachea to constrict, making it difficult to breathe. Jodi didn’t let her alopecia or iSGS stop her, she started online support groups, and prepared advocacy video, to help people all over the world.

Jodi is an award winning inventor of HEADLINE IT!®, President/CEO of Pliszka’s Adventures LLC/HEADLINE IT!®, and Winner of the Enterprising Woman of the Year Award. Jodi is also a celebrated host on Ripley’s Believe It or Not radio, having created a show called Weird Medical Maladies, a program that highlights differences to help reduce prejudices in the world.

Jodi is an award winning author of three books; Bella and Gizmo’s Adventures, The Hairless Sphynx Cats and Bella Gets a New Sweater, both created to help parents teach children about the acceptance of differences. Of course, Jodi used her real-life hairless cats as the stars of books. Jodi exclaims “you have to have a sense of humor to succeed at anything. Having bald cats is true irony, bald cat, bald woman, and also a great way to judge a person’s character.”

Jodi’s award winning autobiography; Bald is Beautiful, My Journey to Becoming is said to be “life’s instructional manual” and a “keen insight into the mind of a true innovation expert.” Jodi encourages all who are looking to enhance their wellbeing and get a “jolt of inspiration,” to digest her book.

WHAT’S A SOLUTIONOLOGIST?.
Definition: “Jodi – an elite Innovator that exposes strategic work sessions which convert ordinary challenges into extraordinary ideas.”

Jodi’s inspiration for her HEADLINE IT!® product came from being a black belt in Taekwondo and a seasoned triathlete. Jodi wanted to control the perspiration from running into and burning her eyes, and stop the staining it was causing her hats, helmets and wigs. Jodi decided to turn her ‘challenge into an opportunity’ to help others.

Jodi’s forward thinking helped earn her a spot as a Top Finalist on ABC’s American Inventor TV Show, her innovation story was featured on Lifetime TV’S Health Corner, Entrepreneur, Forbes, NBC, FOX, CBS, ABC, Montel William’s Show, Mike and Maty Show, and in countless newspapers, magazines, internationally, over the past twenty-eight years.

“ Jodi’s story of tragedy to triumph is an inspirational story that brings a jolt of inspiration to all that hear it.”.. -Doug Hall, Master Inventor, Founder of Eureka Ranch.
