Ep. 060 - Pivoting on Purpose with Cliff Ravenscraft


Sara Anna’s guest today, Cliff Ravenscraft, began podcasting as a hobby in December 2005.  One year later, he launched the Podcast Answer Man brand, where he invested more than a decade helping tens of thousands of individuals and organizations successfully launch a podcast through one-on-one coaching and online courses. If you were to look at the top 100 podcasts in the business category of iTunes, more than 50 of these shows were created by clients who have been trained by Cliff.  In fact, Sara Anna launched THIS podcast under Cliff’s tutelage.

Cliff came onto the show to share about how he made --- and how you can also make --- a pivot in his business, to focus on serving in his Zone of Genius rather than settling for his Zone of Excellence.

To learn about the Zone of Genius, check out the book, The Big Leap, by Gay Hendricks.

Today, Cliff focuses on his role as a business mentor and life coach. He mentors coaches, consultants and thought leaders through the transition from their unfulfilling day job to their own responsible and profitable online business so that they can live the life of their dreams and do the work they feel most called to do in this world.
