Pivot vs. persevere

In the world of startups, entrepreneurs must periodically ask themselves: Are we making enough progress to believe that our original strategic direction is correct, or do we need to make a major change? Should we persevere, or pivot?

In the past weeks, I've made lots of decisions to pivot. One, to pursue a friendship rather than a romantic relationship with someone. Another, to stop pushing my nonfiction book Fit, Fudge, Fine further down the path of traditional publishing at this time. Tough decisions, but look what's at stake: "There is no bigger destroyer of creative potential than the misguided decision to persevere." 

When I'm pivoting....I'm dancing, aren't I?

Kissing and telling. Or not.
Dating's been a huge growth experience, one I will begin to share with discretion, relevance, and respect.
Musical chairs and multiple choice.
Life is too short to sit and squirm through a bad presentation. Shoot for serendipity instead.
Pitch and pivot: Update on Fit, Fudge, Fine.
The messages in Fit, Fudge, Fine will still see the light of day…yet not in the way I originally intended. It’s all good!
Big THANKS to the beta readers of Fit, Fudge, Fine who delivered kind, actionable feedback on my navel-gazing. Huge kudos to Jan who caught all my inconsistencies. Every. Single. One.

Fit, Fudge, Fine will help me build my author platform. This feels like the "write" decision and frees me up to edit my murder mystery -- just in time for the Killer Nashville writing conference.
