At our last #imakealiving event in Austin, we decided to pick one audience member and match them with a career coach to help them develop their business strategy and growth plan. We recorded the whole conversation for this episode. Today we are talking business plans, pivoting and growing your business.
For a while now, we have been planning an episode on diversifying your business. We wanted to document the story of an individual who had just started their business and what it looked like to establish diversification in the initial steps of development. But, the story we ended up capturing was much more specific; someone who was forced to diversify due to external issues out of their control. So, we briefly discuss the general idea of diversification and offer a few tips on starting your business but the meat of this episode is really on: pivoting. Having an idea, a set plan for your business and finding out it's not going to work for some reason or another.
So, back to the story of us choosing someone from the IMAL event. We didn’t know how it was going to go but the whole process in finding this one person to feature sounded fascinating and definitely worth recording.
