Tell me more!

Howdy!

It’s not very often that you get to interview someone who’s been a mentor for years. What a joy to get to share with my interview with the one and only Jenny Blake!

Jenny is an author, speaker, and business strategist based in New York City. As I describe in this episode, there was just something about her energy that captured me years ago when I discovered Jenny’s work, and I’ve been considered her a mentor (now friendtor!) ever since.

Jenny has created a body of work around her concept, The Pivot Method, which is used in a variety of small and large organizations, by individuals via Pivot coaching and reading her book of the same name, and through the Pivot Podcast. But her work goes so much deeper than just talking about career development — she bridges concepts like fluidity, flexibility, openness, ease, and joy in career & business to all aspects of life.

Ultimately, Jenny is a great example of running a business with full integrity and in alignment with the kind of life she wants to live — which is why I’ve loved being a member of her Momentum private community. Momentum will be re-opening its doors with some massive new offerings in October, and you can get on the interest list here if you want to be the first to know.

I loved having this conversation with Jenny, and I hope you love listening to it!
