How to Live Like a Gypsy, Cultivate True Friendships, and Learn to Keep Living After Losing Your First Love with Robert Pardi

Robert Pardi was born in NYC and is one of those rare individuals who embraces change and lives what he calls “possibility in action” – taking his desire for transformation and putting it into action daily. 

He received his MBA from Columbia University and was quickly recruited by the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, one of the largest sovereign wealth funds. 

Shortly after, his wife Desiree, was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. Unfortunately, she passed 11 years later. After, throwing caution to the wind, Robert leapt from his comfort zone. He changed careers and moved to the same Italian village his great grandfather immigrated from over 100 years ago.  

Robert is now a certified life coach, adjunct professor, international guest speaker, and the Author of Chasing Life – The remarkable true story of love, joy, and achievement against all odds.
