Jenny Blake left Google and Silicon Valley to "pivot" her life and her career. Now, she helps others do the same.

“A pivot is really about asking oneself: what is working best right now?”
— Jenny Blake

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today, we are joined by Jenny Blake, and I have to tell you: she and I really really hit it off. We really had a great time chatting. She’s an author, a speaker, a career coach, business strategist, and much much more. She wears a lot of different hats. But she’s mainly the author of Pivot: The only move that matters is your next. It’s a great book about life path, deciding what’s right for you, being happy, and being satisfied in your career. She also hosts the pivot podcast and she has a private momentum community.

On top of all of that, Jenny trains coaches all over the world. She’s been featured on CNBC, New York Times, Sunday Times in the UK… Basically she is an awesome super woman, and she shares a lot of my passions for entrepreneurship, lifestyle design, and as I found out kind of surprisingly, we both geek out on productivity, productivity tools, and how to hack your workflow so that you can get more done. She and I both shared that in the last few years, we have worked less than ever before and earned more and impacted more than we have in our lives. So you’re going to get a ton out of this episode guys, and if you listen to the end, she also shares a lot of great free resources that you can download from her Web site to do some free homework and decide if a pivot in your life is what what you need.

Enjoy!
