My friend Jenny Blake at Pivot Method put together an incredible podcast. I will let you read what she had to say:
When my friend Elizabeth pivoted from time management author and coach to divine time management, her faith-based practice of “trusting God’s loving plans for you,” and with the release of her new book in November, I wanted to have her on the show. But I was nervous at the same time.
Is it okay to put faith forward in business? On the podcast? I’m not Christian—would that adversely affect the interview? Would it be divisive in any way for listeners? Our culture prides a separation of church and state, but what about spirituality and business?
In the months since Elizabeth’s book launched, I have been sloooowly finding the courage to talk about these topics more prominently on the Pivot Podcast. And believe me, coming from an atheist-turned-agnostic, this was not an easy or obvious choice. But my soul’s curiosity and passion for finding deeper meaning in our work says YES. I am grateful to now be exploring people and philosophies of many ranging faiths on this show.
With that, let’s dive into this week’s awesome episode! I love Elizabeth’s advice on loosening the reigns of control, paying attention to inner stirrings, and her vulnerability in sharing how she has surrendered her timing around finding love.
