TCP 040 | Productivity Habits
Giving people responsibility and authority is a big step for business owners because for some this can lead to overload and overthinking or even, taking things too seriously. This happened to Penny Zenker when she felt she wasn’t happy with what she was doing while working for JP Morgan. Always drawn towards technology and figuring out why the solutions aren’t working, Penny made a shift in thinking and started her own company aiming to be a conduit for people’s voices and hers as well. Learn more of her productivity habits and how they help to shift emotions for better work efficiency. — I’m so incredibly jazzed up actually because I get to spend some time with a friend. I get to spend some time in conversation. I love podcasting actually. It’s just a beautiful, beautiful experience of being able to learn things, being able to teach things, being able to connect and have a lot of fun.
PR 039 | Radical Responsibility
Reinvention is a response moment where you are given the option to access a greater consciousness that can lead to a life of joy. Yet, the life of TEDx speaker and Prison Break author Jason Goldberg didn’t start with joy but with a lot of anger. As a kid, Jason was constantly looking for a person to blame. This weighed heavily on him, even when he was living a great life with a great wife, family and job in IT. The day his credit card was cut off and he couldn’t buy a pair of socks was the day he realized he needed to stop blaming others and start developing a sense of radical responsibility. His livelihood and even what he does on stage to inspire people doesn’t define who he is, rather who he chooses to be at any given moment. Jason shares his story of being a guy who always
PR 038 | Cryptospace Sex
An award-winning filmmaker prior to her marriage, Adryenn advises business on how to utilize the crypto blockchain. However this pivot is just one of the many she made along the road of becoming a better version of herself. One such pivot came after a two year court battle related to her husband’s former marriage. Throughout this, Adryenn learned how to stand and fight for social justice by presenting her argument in a way that people could actually hear, leading to her two books. Her latest pivot is a step further into the match-making industry with an app for sexual compatibility, among other things. Adryenn has found her own personal fulfillment in standing up for the importance of sex and the cryptospace.

PR 037 | Peace Mission
The world can become a peaceful place one person at a time. If people can find their inner peace, they can always choose kindness and compassion. And then this peace spreads like wild fire. When Founder and CEO of Project PeaceOnEarth.Org, Steve Robertson turned 28, he knew he can make an impact by taking that first step to care for others. He started seeking his life’s purpose and didn’t get an answer. After being a racer and graduating in college, Steve got his answer through music and eventually became the executive producer of the 2 Unite All Benefit Album. This brought him a step closer to completing the peace mission that has been his life’s work. Steve shares his stories of faith and hope for humanity believing that when you see kindness and compassion from someone, that is the reflection of your soul. — Enjoy more episodes of The Conscious
We’ve got the amazing, magnificent, spectacular, vivacious, brilliant, Lisa Nichols. Many of you know her from being a part of Oprah’s shows and Steve Harvey. She’s written a beautiful book, Abundance Now, and of course her work with Jack Canfield on Chicken Soup for the African American Soul. Our conversation was just amazing. It was epic. Lisa gets quite vulnerable about areas of her life where she’s pivoted and the mindset and the actions that were taken that she took in those moments and how it is that she’s ongoingly challenging herself. She’s going to reveal something that she’s never shared before, something she is announcing that no one else has heard about, certainly not in public. It’s going to be announced for the first time here on this Pivot Radio Show. Stay tuned. Get ready. Buckle up. Whatever you’re doing, remove the distractions, get to a quiet place or

I am thrilled, ecstatic, really feeling so good to be with you however it is that you’re consuming this podcast. I want to express my gratitude to you and for us all at the very outset to hit the reset button. We have this opportunity all the time, every moment of everyday to push that reset button. All it takes is a breath. I’m not saying that it’s easy but it is simple. Simple is something really powerful when you can have simple spiritual solutions to things. It’s super powerful. I’m going to get to introduce you to somebody and spend some time with a dear friend, with a colleague, with somebody I absolutely adore, I respect and love.

PR 031 | Employee Empowerment
It’s a beautiful day. It’s a gorgeous day simply to be alive. I relish this moment to be able to remind myself and to remind all of you, wherever you are, that this is a holy moment. This is a sacred moment if for no other reason than we are alive in this moment, we are breathing in this moment and there are people who are taking their very last breath in this moment. I can’t think of any more important reason to be grateful in this moment than the fact that we are here together. Whatever the good, the bad, the ugly is for each of us at any moment in time, there’s something to be grateful for and I’m grateful for all of you. I’m grateful for the friends and the gentlemen, the person I get to spend time with now in your presence. All of you collectively
