P-I-V-O-T … The entrepreneur’s 5-letter swear word.
But does it have to be?
We all know the word pivot ultimately means to change, so why does it bring up so much shame for us who are in this entrepreneurial space, when we tell others we’re pivoting?
One of the core foundations of Serendipitous Rebel is Purposeful Pivoting – but what does that even mean?
Let’s start with our definition of Purposeful Pivoting:
Connecting with what matters and taking committed action in order to make a bigger impact in the world.
So what does that mean?
Let’s start with “Connecting with what matters”
What is your purpose? What gets you out of bed in the morning? It is the most important part of a businesses foundations, and often the most overlooked. Defining this is the first step to success. With defined purpose you can work harder, you can work longer – you have the grit and resilience needed to push through the tough times.
Next, “taking committed action”
It’s not enough to just want the thing. You have to take actionable steps in order to get there. You have goals you want to achieve. Then you initiate systems to get there. We love the phrase committed action because it’s being very intentional with what you do and how you do it.
Finally, “make a bigger impact in the world.”
It’s not that we want a $4 million company. It’s that we want to make enough of an impact with enough people to create ripple effects in the world. And we want to work with entrepreneurs that want to make a difference in the world.
At Serendipitous Rebel we’ve had multiple pivots in a short period of time. When we found ourselves disconnected from the businesses we’d created, we had to really dig in and ask ourselves hard questions. Now we help entrepreneurs ask the same hard questions so that they, too, can become a profitable business.
Change can be reallly difficult. Believe me, WE KNOW! But sometimes that change is necessary if you want to achieve the results you’re looking for.
