I’m so excited to share this week’s Pivot conversation with one of my longtime friends and most important mentors, Michael Bungay Stanier. We talk about tipping points, preparing for TED Talks, and transitioning out of the CEO role from the company he founded nearly 20 years ago, Box of Crayons. We are also celebrating the launch of his latest bril…
 
This week’s episode was recorded while on the road, preparing to speak at the International Monetary Fund to help them kick-off new career programs for 2020 (an honor!). Thankful for a quiet hotel room all to myself in the midst of puppy-training (semi)chaos, I stacked a call with my attorney for a licensing contract, then recorded this interview a…

In this week’s solo episode, we have the two-month report from the puppy training trenches! Michael and I brought Ryder home December 8, our little angel-in-a-fur-coat — aka the pup-pup. Take one look at his 8-week old cuteness in the photo gallery below and you'll understand why! For inquiring minds, he's a German Shepherd—albeit a tiny one in the…
 
In 2007, while working within Sheryl Sandberg’s Online Sales and Operations organization at Google, I received a coaching session that changed my life. This was before the word coaching (and careers revolving around it) was ubiquitous outside of the sports arena. In this episode I share more about how that one session helped spark an entire movemen…

I have always been curious about solopreneurs who choose to stay small, like me. Seven years into running my own business, I still deliberately choose not to scale in a way that requires hiring any full-time employees or by too much added infrastructure, to support two of my biggest business values of freedom and agility. But that doesn't mean that…

Originally posted March 2018 — part of a “Best Of” series as I get caught up from a round of travel and puppy-adjusting :) When my friend Elizabeth pivoted from time management author and coach to divine time management, her faith-based practice of "trusting God's loving plans for you," and with the release of her new book in November, I wanted to …

This week’s episode is another one of my favorite formats, just two new (soul) friends shooting the breeze in what we’ve dubbed a “podcast tango” :) Given that we both have podcasts, we decided to just hit record and do this joint conversation, neither of us officially interviewing the other. I hope you enjoy this conversation jam with insta-BFF Kr…

And for those of you in the NYC area, join us this w…
 
This week’s episode is a special behind-the-scenes preview from my live monthly Pivot Insider community Q&A call. In our December call (last one of the decade!) I shared my favorite things Oprah-style, why I launch everything in an “imperfect,” incomplete state, my go-to workouts from home, and questions submitted from the group on side hustles and…
 
Laura Simms and I have been traveling parallel Pivot paths for a while now — nearly a decade of tracking each other’s work, but finally for the first time speaking live, 1:1! Of course we hit it off as fast friends, as we discuss ageism, passion vs. purpose, and working through insecurities when navigating career pivots. Laura is an expert in meani…
 
The Penney & Jenny Show is back! The latest installment (PJ Show #11!) answers a listener Q&A about pivoting out of toxic situations at work. Penny and I discuss how we evaluate when to stay vs. go, discerning normal ups and downs from true toxicity, and the highest emotional state that acts as a tuning fork and compass to pull you forward into a n…

I encourage you to get out a pen and paper for this one—yes, analog-style—and pause frequently to journal fo…
 
If you’re attempting any creative or business endeavor, you know that it’s one of the great personal development journeys a person can undertake. Dips, mood drops, discouragement, disillusionment — these are all natural byproducts of forging new territory and taking on the vulnerability and uncertainty that come with creating anything new in the wo…
 
We’re back with the latest listener Q&A! This round is on a podcast listener success story (and mentors-from-afar), as well as a great question from Mark on how to deal with so much sitting throughout the work day.

Have you had a goal to deliver a TED or TEDx talk, and it just hasn’t happened yet? It’s more work than I ever realized, but was also far more rewarding. My goal today is to get YOU in action to deliver yours. It’s easy to get the journey started, and my hope is you also get prepped on how to handle the process when it gets tough. Since delivering …
 
“I don’t even care if we talk about the new book,” Neil said as we started our Skype call, while I thumbed through dog-eared, underlined, and marked-up pages of the You Are Awesome galley. Ooh, fun! Knowing I have a tendency to focus too much on the paper artifact in front of me while interviewing authors, rather than what’s True and present in the…
 
Today’s conversation is unique, because we interview, and coach each other. This will also air on Jenny’s “Pivot Podcast”. What if this uncertainty is a gateway to something so much better? Jenny lives by this quote: “If change is the only constant, let’s get better at it.” Today’s episode is about designing powerful next steps. Our guest is Jenny …
 
Given the “mutation of television’s DNA” that reporter Jonah Weiner describes in his fantastic New York Times Magazine article, The Great Race to Rule Streaming TV, there is much we can learn about where the creative economy is heading, how to stand out, and how to Pivot your own creative projects. This article is so juicy—so jam-packed with insigh…
 
I’ve been a big fan of Marianne’s writing, Be a Free Range Human, since my earliest days as a solopreneur; and in fact, she crossed my radar when my blog was just a budding baby side-hustle, but we hadn’t connected in real-time until this conversation. A longtime advocate for going your own way in life and work, Marianne shares where many soloprene…
 
What does horse whispering have in common with entrepreneurship? More than you might think; unless you are already running your own show and know exactly how fickle taming a wild new business can be! I loved this conversation with Elaine Kenney on her trials as a single mom building a business, her resilience in the face of dips and defeat, her obs…

Sometimes the Audio Gods just do not shine upon you, and that’s what happened during this super fun experimental interview with my brilliant friend Charlie Gilkey! My mic is “hot” (aka way too loud), but I hope you’ll forgive me and listen anyway, as Charlie shares SO. MUCH. GOLD!! We even go into “extreme coaching” mode together at the end, as we …
 
We have a verrrry special guest this week in honor of his big birthday month, and that’s my dad—Jim Blake! He happened to be in town visiting on a day that I was participating in Podcast Row, an all-day podcasting extravaganza at Stand-up New York. My first guest had a last-minute emergency and had to bow out, so with no notice I pulled my dad onto…

How can I earn twice as much in half the time, with joy and ease, while serving the highest good for all involved? This is one of the central questions in my solo+preneur-based business, one that builds a habit (okay, okay, obsession) of looking for simple systems and strategies to help free our time, mind, and money. This episode is preview lesson…
 
In her book, The Making of a Manager: What To Do When Everyone Looks To You , author Julie Zhuo takes us back to the childhood lemonade stand in a way that flipped a major “aha” lightbulb switch for me. As the founder of a budding business, you might be the best at making lemonade, or at least think you are, even as you hire helpers to (wo)man the …
 
Have you ever wanted to write a book? Do you just know there’s one, maybe more books floating around inside of you? What would publishing your book represent for you, your ideas, and your creativity? So far in my entrepreneurial journey, I’ve found writing to be THE core creative practice in designing and running my business. When we’re not writing…

Today I want to give you a peek behind the scenes into the journey of creating and launching This Epic Circle by sharing a special podcast interview with one of my clients-turned-teammates.

Why do we hesitate when it comes to being more of ourselves? In this episode, which happens to be released on Penney’s birthday (woohoo!) we discuss why we fears and limitations that hold us back from our fullest expression. In this conversation, we talk about the cultural pressure to fit in, self-entertainment as spiritual practice, setting big go…
 
Have you met any real-life superheroes? I know a handful. Emiliya Zhivotovskaya is my Captain Marvel. She has a somewhat dark, powerful origin story that has created a literal juggernaut in the fields of Positive Psychology, Resilience, and Human Flourishing. Her Being can be felt in any room she’s in, and she’s often at the center of the circle, o…
 
Imagine landing in a country and not allowing yourself to speak your native language even once (for many Pivot Podcast listeners that’s English), even with your roommates or fellow travelers. You’d be diving into the deep end, but you’d integrate FAR more quickly and effectively than if you took the “pop out of the bubble” approach, of only speakin…
 
As soon as Michael woke up and gave me the “what have I done?!” look after launching his latest project @LifeOfALebaneseArtist on Instagram just 24 hours prior, I knew we had a juicy creative gem on our hands. I also knew that he was experiencing what so many of us do when we release a put-yourself-out-there post or project—a major vulnerability ha…
 
This week’s episode comes fresh off the heels of a two-day strategy sprint that my team and I ran to tackle our biggest business frogs. One commitment we made at the end was to “share truth while it's fresh” — with delightful specificity and crazy-smart systems — so that’s what I’m doing! This is a behind-the-scenes peek at what we're building (and…

Penney and I are back in action, with the 8th (!!) installment of our Penney & Jenny show. This week we dive into why it can be so difficult to embrace liminal space, also known as a transitional state of “in-between.” Penney equates the liminal space to the time when a caterpillar has created and entered the cocoon, but has not transitioned into a…
 
I’m baaaaaack! Did you miss me? I sincerely apologize for (unintentionally) ghosting out on you. I hit a (Pivot) point of total overload and overwhelm with some BIG personal updates on school and my love life (you’ll have to listen in to get the full deets!). All while mid-way through second semester at seminary, buying and moving to a new home in …
 
What are the hidden costs of digital clutter? How can we counter screen addiction and phantom phone vibrations?

Nobody knows the daily grind of competition and mental game better than athletes and coaches.
