079: Making a Pivot in your Business

 

Pivoting in business means making a change in direction and focus, abandoning a previous business effort in order to make a concerted effort toward a new goal.

I’ve had several times in my creative business where I’ve had to make a pivot – some major shifts, some small shifts.  Change is scary. Change is hard. But I want to share my four experiences with you to help YOU in your business journey.

How do you know when you need to pivot? Well, while coaching my creatives biz owners, I can  immediately recognize several signs when they need to pivot too. I am sharing these situations right here! They can be the biggest blessings in your business and I’ll explain why. I have some tips how to deal with all the resistance and emotions that arise when your business needs to take a twist and a turn.

In this episode, I’ll be your permission granter and encourager for change!

    Girl you rock! My first podcast was about Pivoting! The Lord always works in an on time fashion, you see He awoke me from my sleep and told me to focus primarily on this new idea for my business! Talk about scared! I have followed you for years here and there and then you show up and convince me it’s time to Pivot in Gods Favor and it’s His Timing!
    I feel comfort and love oozing from every nook and cranny and knowing that it’s coming from the love of God in your soul it has sold the confirmation!
    Sister your the real deal!

    I am so laughing!!! I’m bored with my career as a flight attendant (gulp/guilt) and for 10 years now have thought this next venture in direct sales, e-commerce, my own unique art/ furniture antique mall business is going to rescue me out of the JOB! Funny part, my flight attendant friend who told me about you Jen also has her hands around my ankle!! What??? Are you crazy?? You can’t leave now “They” are all retiring! We are gonna be able to fly the really good stuff!!… ever been a hamster 🐹 on a wheel and felt that burn for what you were REALLY created for???… That’s Me! & I know thousands of others that this podcast has MOVED to PIVOT Position! Thanks Darlin! Cherie Winship

    I absolutely loved this episode. I recently downsized my antique booth from 17 feet long to 11 feet long due to a reduction in sales. Thank you so much for your encouragement to move through the icky feelings and realize that it’s actually a GOOD thing to pivot in your business. It is not a sign of failure, but rather an act of obedience and business savviness! <3
