Change - Jenny Blake

Read more

Jenny Blake is the author of Pivot: The Only Move That Matters is Your Next One. I invited her to come on UNLEASHED (at work & home) because we're all in state of flux these days. Every pet professional is being asked to change standard ways of doing business, and it's stressful. But it can also be exciting.

Jenny likes to think of this as "radical reimagining." What possibilities do you see when you lean into your intuition and judgment?

Gavin de Becker's book, The Gift of Fear, does a great job of explaining how your senses are always communicating with you to keep you safe--when you don't override them with logic or a need to be perceived as nice or polite. 

You know the power of these gifts. You need to rely them daily in your work with animals. But do you trust them to guide you in your interactions with other people? With yourself?

Sometimes you'll get caught in a frustrating loop, wondering "What is wrong with me? Shouldn't I be happy?" You may even get sucked into a spiral of guilt or feel powerless to make changes.

You don't need to feel guilty. And you aren't powerless. 

During this time of tremendous change, take this opportunity to explore what you want for your life ... and what's getting in the way.

Jenny and I discussed the power of Byron Katie's books, including Loving What Is and A Mind at Home with Itself. Byron Katie is most known for her four pivotal questions that can help you shift your mindset and discover new options:

  • Is it true?
  • Can you absolutely know that it’s true?
  • How do you react when you believe that thought?
  • Who would you be without the thought?

Becoming more aware of your thoughts (whew, so many thoughts!!!!) and learning to broaden your perspective are two of the most valuable life skills anyone can develop. If you'd like some support with this, let's talk!

She now speaks and holds workshops on the Pivot Method around the world, at companies like Intuit and Pimco, universities like Yale and MIT, and conferences like TEDxCMU and the World Domination Summit. She also runs the Pivot Podcast, which started as a passion project while she was writing Pivot and has grown into a forum for world-renowned authors and businesspeople to share their advice on how to seize opportunities and pivot like pros.

Jenny has so many great stories and insights to share in our interview, from the health benefits of practicing yoga to why reading will make you a better person. She also talks about how to get over your fears of public speaking, how meditation will make you a better entrepreneur, and how you can use the Pivot Method to succeed in business and improve your personal life.

Designing a Launch You LOVE, introvert friendly! - with Jenny Blake

Read more

If setting revenue targets gives you anxiety about launching something new, you are not alone. When we put pressure on ourselves to hit a specific number by the end of a launch, we tend to forget about the people involved. So, what if we reframed the way we thought about marketing a launch? What if we focused on attracting the community we genuinely want to spend time with? What if we played to our strengths to design a launch experience we could LOVE?

This episode falls under the P of Promotion of The Gentle Marketing Mandala. If you don't know what I'm talking about you can download my 1-page marketing plan in the form of a mandala at http://www.sarahsantacroce.com/1page.

Jenny spent two years at a tech startup in Silicon Valley and five years in Training and Career Development at Google before launching her own consulting business in 2011.

On this episode, Jenny shares the spiritual tools that made her most recent launch more relaxed and joyful. She discusses the systems and content she created that will live on long after the launch and introduces us to the idea of identifying and attracting people who energize you to your business.  Listen in for the story of Jenny’s ‘night owl’ email (sent just before the doors closed) and learn how to design a launch YOUR way, earn revenue AND serve the highest good.

In this episode you’ll learn…

  • The spiritual tools that made Jenny’s last launch more relaxed and joyful.
  • Jenny’s experience around setting revenue targets and launch goals.
  • How Jenny’s long-term marketing approach takes the pressure of a single launch.
  • How to create systems + content that live on long after a single launch.
  • How Jenny treats the sales page like a letter to an individual she wants to serve.
  • The revolutionary idea of attracting people who energize you to your business.
  • Jenny’s insight on building revenue AND serving the highest good.
  • The success of the ‘night owl’ email Jenny sent a few hours before the doors closed.
  • Jenny’s impromptu decision to offer a one-on-one call to new members.
  • How Jenny thinks about reframing the energy around a so-called ‘failed launch.’

Show Notes

For my first interview on Your Yes Life Now Podcast, I had to invite my dear friend Jenny Blake back onto the show. As the author of Pivot, she was the perfect guest for this episode.

We begin the conversation with the question “what are we saying yes to?” Jenny shares that saying yes for her is also saying I she is her first priority and that means that her health, her wellness, her rest, her space, her sanity is her first priority – a lesson we can all learn to be better at. The yes for Jenny and her yes life is about honoring who she is and giving herself permission to say no so that she’s really clear and joyful when she does say yes.

We talk about burnout and how quickly it can loom upon us if we are not careful. Jenny shares that having awareness of our own tendencies is so crucial. And then what she offers for us when we do find ourselves in a state of burnout, is to flood ourselves with self-compassion. So instead of the self-talk that burnout is a problem, flip the conversation to be able to say to yourself -  I can see that you've been working so hard and I see how much you've done. She goes on to share that If she is worried about someone else's wellness more than her own and she hasn't yet done her basics of movement, hydration, eating well, sleep, then she reminds herself to rewind so that she can stay full to help and love those around her.

Jenny’s life mantra is “Let it be easy, let it be fun.” And for her, this is a lens she uses when making decisions about her life and work.

As this show was recorded at the end of 2019 we talk about our words for the upcoming year. Mine is Financial Freedom, which moved us into a conversation about money, worth and income. We speak about money being energy and that if we allow ourselves to take the restrictions and the fears and the worries away and we allow full abundance to flow through us, we can serve others, we can serve the world, we can create more, we can reach more, we can donate to charities and we can earn more and share more.

We move onto the topic of time and Jenny invites us to question what we have been told about traditional working hours and what it takes to be successful. Jenny wants 2020 to be a year where she can simplify. She shares that she has just blocked off her calendar in 2020. She has blocked out the fourth week of every month along with I blocking off Mondays and Fridays. She is going to experiment with compressing her time and elevating her focus with an estimated total of 1000 working hours in 2020.

Jenny’s word is luxurious and we both share that our words for 2020 feel a little uncomfortable and we invite you to pick a word for 2020 that is a stretch word – one that makes you feel a little pushed and challenged.

Jenny is both spontaneous and also a genius as systems. She also has a mantra that comes from the agile development word and that is - each time you repeat a task, take one step toward automating it. What that means is saving yourself the time. Being kind to your future self. If you find yourself writing an email, giving directions to your home, or any task that you can anticipate you're going to do move it into a system that can be replicated.

Jenny and I both believe that you can be successful on your own terms and that it takes courage and perseverance to figure out what works for you and your life and on your terms. With that as we move into 2020, both Jenny and I wish you a journey that is easy and fun -and has systems in place to help you out along the way.
