If change is the only constant, let’s get better at it. Many of you know I have become obsessed with this mission the last few years.

Another mission I’m obsessed with: debunking the idea that you need a Holy Grail Mentor to help you succeed. Instead, why not learn from the people who have already pored years of their lives and research into mini-masterpieces—distilled wisdom on pulpy pages at your fingertips? AKA the first love of my life, books.

My goal: teach you how to teach yourself to fish when it comes to navigating change. One week, one book, one expert’s best insights and lessons-learned at a time.

Enter the Pivot Podcast, the little experiment engine that could.



I started this show on a whim, never expecting to fall in love with this format as much as I did.

It began in 2015 by uploading low-fidelity conference call audio files to SoundCloud, recorded with iPhone headphones and no editing, shy about the fact that I didn’t have any fancy music or show sponsors, but willing to suppress my urge for perfection and instead hit publish on this curious, scrappy little pilot project to see where it would take me.

Slowly, in the spare time I had when I wasn't writing my second book, PIVOT: The Only Move That Matters Is Your Next One, I started teaching myself Garage Band, downloaded some music files from a site called Pond5, stumbled my way into the minimum viable skill level to make that fancy-seeming intro and outro music with voiceover, and figured out how to get the show into iTunes. The last piece of the puzzle: I started reaching out to my dream mentors-from-afar, authors who I had long-admired and never quite had the courage to connect with.

Despite my trepidation, and much to my my surprise and delight, when I asked them to be guests on the show many said YES!! From WIRED co-founder Kevin Kelly, to a favorite writer and now friend James Altucher, to former Starbucks President Howard Shultz, to master of intuition and perception Penney Peirce, it has been a great joy to hit record on these conversations with my heroes so that I can share their expertise with all of you.



Now, as the Pivot Podcast rounds the corner into it’s fourth (!!) year and over 70 episodes across three publishing seasons, the show has grown into one of iTunes top podcasts in the Careers category, named by CNBC among 6 podcasts to make you smarter about your career, and selected by Entrepreneur as one of the top 20 female-hosted business podcasts.

However, producing the show does require a significant amount of work. It’s a labor of love, no doubt, and it’s time to take the pivot podcast to the next level once more. 

To keep the podcast going, growing, and with as high-quality production and editing as possible, I’d love your help in making it a more sustainable part of my business. In an effort to keep the show relatively free of sponsors (unless one happens to resonate like crazy), I’d love to extend this invitation to participate and invest as a show partner first:

Will you help me take the podcast pro in 2018 by supporting it with your Patreon dollars?

I have come up with a whole batch of goodies at each supporter level that I think you’ll love and benefit from. If you have enjoyed the show and want to have more input into who I invite and what topics we discuss, first crack at submitting specific questions for guests, and to be in closer community with me and other like-minded smart, generous creatives, side-hustlers, solopreneurs and pivoters, now is the time. 

The Pivot Podcast would not exist without you being here to listen, and even taking the time to read this page.

Enormous thanks from the bottom of my heart for all of your support thus far in the journey, and for any you are able to provide moving forward. I can’t wait to pivot the podcast once again and keep bringing you exactly what you love to listen to!  

With gratitude,
