I don’t believe we’re meant to do the same thing forever. In fact, I think most entrepreneurs are multi-passionate, multi-hyphenated creatives. And this is a sentiment that became even more obvious after we asked you what types of episodes you'd like to see on The Power in Purpose podcast. You want to learn about pivoting in business–what it’s like, how to start, and what to expect when you decide to leave behind your business/career and start something new.
In this episode, I’m giving you permission to pivot–and sharing what I learned when I sold my first business and followed my purpose and how you can start making a change in business today.
Maybe you’re feeling burnt out and you’re looking for something new and exhilarating. Or, maybe you don’t have the same love and joy you once did when you started your career. Pivoting can be scary, hard, and honestly stressful.
But there’s not a day that goes by where I’m not grateful I took the leap and decided to shift course in my career.
If you’ve been feeling that nudge… or heck, that aggressive push to try something new, this episode is for you.
I know what pivoting is like firsthand; in October of 2019, I sold my 6-figure business of 12 years so I could coach and mentor wedding pros full time. After so many years doing (and being known for) one thing, pivoting was exciting and exhilarating.
But it was also hard, full of imposter syndrome, and felt like totally starting over. Today, I'm sharing the good, the bad, and the hard when it comes to pivoting.
This episode is part of our mindset series.

I’m getting settled back into life after a whirlwind week at @creativeeducatorconference - and I want to share a few things with you.
First, @laylee_emadi put together the most incredible space for learning, connection, and the exchange of ideas. If you’ve ever hosted a live event, then you know how much WORK goes into it. Hats off to Laylee and her team for intentionally creating such a safe place for people to be themselves.
Friends, there’s something magical that happens when people get together. I know (maybe better than most) how the last few years have taken that away from us.
But if I can encourage you to do one thing this year for your business and for yourself it would be to get off Zoom and get in the room with some new people.
It can change your life.
There were so many special moments last week, but the sweetest was *finally* getting to meet some of the women that I’ve been coaching for… I dunno… YEARS?!
We laughed, ate meals, hugged, learned together, talked shit, laughed some more, and had the best time. Ladies, I love you all so much and I can’t wait to do it again.
@simplysandrayvonne @elizabethberghuisphotography @rohanaolson @the_evergreencollective
Laylee, you are brave and brilliant–and I can’t thank you enough for giving me a chance to share a little behind-the-scenes magic of my own business.
To everyone I got a chance to chat with and learn from–thanks for being so generous with your conversation and ideas. You are all amazing-and I can’t wait to see how you make waves and ripples this year!
