Start A Business With A Powerful Pivot

For anyone that is looking to start a business in their late 30's, 40's, 50's and beyond, one of the biggest challenges is going from a place of comfort (the known) to a place of vulnerability (the unknown).

I have many female friends that are considered, rightly, to be amazingly successful by "typical" standards.  We are talking CEO's, heads of major departments in Universities, multi-million dollar entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers...you get it.  I also have many friends that are successful in many other but equally important ways, such as mothers of multiple children, those that support their spouses (emotionally and/or financially), as excellent employees in their chosen profession, as incredible and supportive friends.

The one thing that happens, no matter where you stand after a certain point in your life, is that you are used to it.  Even when it may be bad, or not something that makes you happy ... you are used to it, so you put up with it.

This is one of, if not the major, reason why people do not follow their dreams and desires and start a business.

But what if you could do a powerful pivot? Would you do it then?

What It Means To Start A Business With A Powerful Pivot

Starting a business with a powerful pivot simply means pivoting away from your current identify - as CEO, as lawyer, as mom -and pivoting into a new identity, but in a way that your power, your comfort, and your integrity from the place that you came remains intact.

It's about ensuring that when you do pivot, you aren't going all the way back to the beginning, but building on what you already have.

Its about establishing and maintaining your confidence so that your new endeavor isn't doomed from the beginning.

Its about creating an environment for your success.

 If you know me, you know that I've done several powerful pivots over the course of my career.  Each time, I've come back stronger, and each time, I've been able to create more success than the last.

How did I do this? 

It all comes down to what I call the SMART, successful way to start a business:  Systems - Mindset - Action - Revenue - Training.

I've been getting asked, more and more:  Nicole - how do I do this, too? 

That's what's coming.  If you want to learn more, please click the above link to let me know you're interested, and I will keep you in the loop as the trainings begin!

To SMART success, and a POWERFUL pivot,
