Show notes…

Calls to ACTION!!!

Favorite success quote or mantra:

  • "What you can plan is too small for you to live."

In today's episode with Jenny Blake we will discuss:

  • If change is the only constant then we should get used to it
  • To pivot we must drop what is not working and embolden what is working
  • Pivoting is a skill and a mindset; it needs to be continuous
  • The 4 stages of the Pivot are:
    1. Plant
      • Determine what are your strengths? What is working?
      • Determiner what is your vision?
      • With COVID-19 you should have two visions: short-term and long-term
    2. Scan
      • What strengths can do double-down on?
      • What is your next move?
      • Plan it out
    3. Pilot
      • Try something out with little investment to test it out
      • It can help you test the three E's: Do I enjoy this? Can I become an expert? is there room to expand?
    4. Launch
      • Actually implementing your new direction
