1012. How To Pivot In Your Career With Amy Porterfield

Amy Porterfield is one of my go-to friends when I want advice about how to make the right pivot and become a better business leader. She’s an online marketing expert who poured all of her wisdom into her new book, Two Weeks Notice, which is a step-by-step guide on how to transition out of your current job and start thinking like a business owner. 

In our conversation, Amy walks us through some of the major takeaways from the book, including how to find your ‘sweet spot’ business idea and set yourself up for success. We look back on our scrappy beginnings and talk about how that process helped us discover what ideas were truly aligned and worth going all-in on.  

Because I think everyone should have this book, we’re giving away a copy to the first 10 people who share this episode on Instagram and tag @amyporterfield and @loriharder. Don’t forget to let us know your biggest takeaway from this episode!
