Word from the Outpost

How do you know when it's time to pivot?

Whether it's your business plan or your career, I'd guess that a total of zero of us have stayed on the same track throughout its entirety. For example: I graduated from college thinking I was going to be a diplomat in the Middle East, and now I get paid for Tweeting GIFs and writing this newsletter. 

I'm writing an advice roundup for founders and leaders who have that gut feeling that their business needs to change, but are waiting for a sign that they can't ignore. How do you know?

I'd love to hear from you all—you can respond to me here, or we can set up a time to do a real, live interview (and put that degree of mine to work).
