Pivot points podcast

‘Pivot Points’ explores, celebrates and normalises the twists, turns and changes of course in life.

Pivot points are not ‘jump and the universe will catch me’ moments. Brave moves aren’t a big, bold one-off event. They are slow, iterative and evolving. 

Each episode we take our guests on a retrospective; looking back on how they felt at their pivot points; the highs, lows, failures and fixes. We delve into their mindset, perspective and choices at that time, and what it has taught them in the long run.

Gabi and Amelia are the bubbly hosts. Both professional coaches and self confessed story junkies, they are privy to the most astonishing and empowering, behind-the-scenes accounts of so many successful people.

They enjoy busting the myths around ‘confidence’ and ‘success’ and show the audience that bravery is not just for C Suite, millionaires or silicon valley entrepreneurs with New York Times best sellers. Normal folk do exceptional things all the time. You too can do it.

 

A pivot is a marker of success, not a glitch in the matrix!
