How do you know when it's the right time to make a pivot in any aspect of your life or career? To make the decision to leave or to stick it out? Whether it's a personal decision or a professional one, there are things you can do to help make the decision an easier one. It involves making sure your basic needs are getting met, listening to how you're feeling about the situation, and a basic willingness to be patient with yourself and the process. We also have an ulterior motive in talking about this, as we have made the bittersweet decision to make this the last season (and second to last episode) of the podcast.

We’d love to hear from you!

Change. No matter who you are, how much money you have in the bank, or what your relationship status is ... change is inevitable. So why do we fight it so damn hard? Probably because it takes us out of our comfort zone and makes a mess out of everything. And yet, all changes have the opportunity to teach us more about ourselves and help us shift into a place of greater potential. The key is to understand your own patterns when it comes to coping with change. Because the more you know, the more you can navigate through the changes and come out on the other side with less mess and less struggle.

We’d love to hear from you!

How do you cope with change? What is your typical pattern? Do you even have a pattern when change shows up in your life? What helps to make it a more positive or pleasant experience?
