    155: Becoming a Successful Speaker with Grant Baldwin

    155: Becoming a Successful Speaker with Grant Baldwin

    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 and two solo shows — true
    to this week’s topic of navigating life as a professional speaker!

    Grant and I discuss guidance from his new book, The Successful Speaker:
    Simple Steps to Make a Living Off Your Message, on everything from pricing,
    to outreach, to navigating life on the road.

    154: Two-Month Report from the Puppy (and People!) Training Trenches

    154: Two-Month Report from the Puppy (and People!) Training Trenches

    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 early
    photos, he has doubled in size in just two months. As our neighbors here in
    Harlem say daily (we make so many friends now!), "Look at those paws! He's
    gonna be BIIIIIG!"

    Given this big life change, I didn't start 2020 on a particularly graceful
    note . . . I awoke at 4am on January 1 to throw on all my winter gear
    (including The Comfy), take him downstairs . . . and clean-up doggie
    diarrhea (sorry, I know that's graphic). Long story short: these last two
    months have been incredibly joyful AND I felt I was losing my mind at many
    moments!

    In this episode of the Pivot Podcast I’m sharing the journey has been like
    so far, and all the best books and resources I've been relying on. These
    two articles also provided a lot of consolation on the chaos! Having Kids
     by Paul Graham, and Puppies are Harder Than Babies (h/t Adam).

    153: How to Create an Internal Coaching Program for Your Organization

    153: How to Create an Internal Coaching Program for Your Organization

    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 movement that’s still alive within Google today: an internal
    “drop-in” coaching program—to make coaching accessible, easy to sign up
    for, and free—for all employees at all levels of the company. I’ll dive
    into the big themes and mechanics of how to set this up if you’re hoping to
    run a pilot within your organization.

    That first coach, Erik, in just two sessions also inspired me to attend
    coach training myself in 2008, restart my (at the time) sleeping website
    Life After College, and gave me hope that I could be an author someday . .
    . and the rest is history :)

    Shoutout to Denny Clark for submitting the Listener Q&A that inspired this
    episode!

    [Best Of] 96: The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business with Elaine Pofeldt

    [Best Of] 96: The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business with Elaine Pofeldt

    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 I exclude higher earnings as a necessary
    byproduct. My business mantras: optimize for revenue and joy, look for ways
    to earn twice as much in half the time (with ease and with even greater
    impact), and let it be easy, let it be fun.

    So I was delighted to stumble upon Elaine Pofeldt, who is similarly
    obsessed with researching non-employer businesses with 7-figure earnings.
    In this week's conversation we dive into what she discovered while writing
    The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business. Related note: I've captured my
    best strategies for nearly quadrupling my income while working half the
    time (with no full-time employees) in my Delegation Ninja course.

    [Best Of] 91: Divine Time Management and Putting Faith Forward in Business and Love with Elizabeth Grace Saunders

    [Best Of] 91: Divine Time Management and Putting Faith Forward in Business and Love with Elizabeth Grace Saunders

    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 have her on the show. But I was nervous at the same time.

    Is it okay to put faith forward in business? On the podcast? I'm not
    Christian—would that adversely affect the interview? Would it be divisive
    in any way for listeners? Our culture prides a separation of church and
    state, but what about spirituality and business?

    In the months since Elizabeth's book launched, I have been sloooowly
    finding the courage to talk about these topics more prominently on the
    Pivot Podcast. And believe me, coming from an atheist-turned-agnostic, this
    was not an easy or obvious choice. But my soul's curiosity and passion for
    finding deeper meaning in our work says YES. I am grateful to now be
    exploring people and philosophies of many ranging faiths on this show.

    With that, let's dive into this week's awesome episode! I love Elizabeth's
    advice on loosening the reigns of control, paying attention to inner
    stirrings, and her vulnerability in sharing how she has surrendered her
    timing around finding love.

    152: Glowing in the Dark with Kristoffer 'KC' Carter

    152: Glowing in the Dark with Kristoffer 'KC' Carter

    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 Kristoffer “KC” Carter
    (shout-out to our mutual mensch mentor Jonathan Fields who introduced us!),
    whose new podcast This Epic Life is one I know you’ll also love. We deepen
    our budding BFF-ship and discuss the BIG topics of life—including death,
    dips, permission to shine, business pivots, his yogic and meditation
    practices, and much more.
