HAPPY PIVOT LAUNCH DAY!! I can't believe it's here. After three years of preparing for this moment, now the serendipity lottery tickets truly go on sale.
What's next? Although I have hypotheses, in other ways I have no clue which of my next pilots will pick up steam. And as I learned from writing this book, that is A-OK.
I can't wait to see what bubbles up next, and for all of you to read the book—or listen if Audible is more your style :). Thank you all for the love and support along the way—I am grateful beyond words.
The most helpful thing you can do this week in addition to social sharing: leave an Amazon review once you've read the book (and thumbs-up other reviews you find helpful). Thank you in advance!!
I have had such a blast recording podcasts, doing interviews, writing articles, and ninjafying my own business systems (aka digital nesting) to prepare for the extra traffic 'round JBE digital HQ.
- James Altucher and I swapped hosting duties for each other's shows which was tons of fun (pic below)—me interviewing him for his podcast, The James Altucher Show (coming soon!), and here's James interviewing me for the Pivot Podcast.
- Here's a 30-minute video interview with my good friend Dorie Clark
- A few other podcast highlights: Art of Charm with Jordan Harbinger, Good Life Project with Jonathan Fields, and Unemployable with Brian Clark (kicking of their season later today).
- To go down a major listening rabbit hole, check out this Podcast Tour page, which I will update throughout the week.
Here's an Unboxing video of me seeing my book in hardcover for the first time:

Launch Week Momentum
Here are some actions that will make a big difference:
Spread the word via email. Do you know someone at a pivot point in their career or business? I would love for you to send an email to anyone you know who is searching for an answer to “what’s next?” and could benefit from a step-by-step guide to figure that out. If you have a newsletter, online community or other big platform you can include the blurb in, that’s a super bonus! You can find blurb copy here.
I have also created a fun Pivotability Self-Assessment where people can take a short 5-minute survey to determine their Pivot Profile.
Amazon review on launch day. This will be a huge help!! Reviews are a huge signal to potential readers that the book is worth their time and a very strong positive momentum/social proof signal as well. Extra credit: copy and paste your review into Goodreads if you’re on that platform too :)
Super Duper Bonus: Purchase more than one copy. Either buy a book for a friend, or if you work within an organization, see if there’s budget to buy a copy for everyone on your team. If you buy 10 books, you’ll get an Actionable Conversation workshop-in-a-box for free ($500 value) to facilitate a one-hour lunch-and-learn session with your group. I’ll be doing a free webinar with Actionable Conversations on 9/8 where you can learn more about this.
Now let's go rock this launch week!!
I'll report back on how it all goes soon :)
