In the world of entrepreneurship, there is often a debate about whether it is better to tweak your current business or pivot to something completely different. As moms, business owners, and women with many responsibilities, it is natural for us to question our choices and wonder if we should make a change. However, it is important to distinguish between needing to pivot and simply wanting to pivot.

As moms, our lives are constantly changing. Our children grow and evolve, and our own interests and priorities shift as well. This can lead us to question whether we are on the right path or if we should explore something new. It could be triggered by various factors such as changes in our children’s ages, major life events like losing a parent or getting married, or even a newfound passion for something like fitness. These feelings are completely normal and should be acknowledged.

However, before making any drastic changes, it is crucial to determine whether the desire to pivot is based on long-term happiness or simply a temporary excitement. Many times, individuals get caught up in a new interest or passion and decide to pursue it as a career without fully considering if it aligns with their long-term goals and values. For example, someone who is successful in their current business may suddenly become passionate about fitness and decide to become a health coach. But upon further reflection, they may realize that their interest in health coaching is only temporary and not something they want to commit to for the rest of their lives.

To avoid making impulsive decisions, it is advisable to seek guidance from a life coach or messaging coach. These professionals can help you understand how to convey your message effectively, make money, grow your brand, and build a community. Often, people find that they struggle to articulate their message beyond a certain point, which indicates that the desire to pivot may not be a long-term solution. By being conscious of your motivations and seeking guidance, you can make informed decisions about whether to pivot or simply make tweaks to your current business. If you feel the need to pivot because something is not working in your business, it is essential to ask yourself whether you truly love what you are doing and if it aligns with your purpose. At Boss Mom, our mission is not just to help moms grow their businesses, but also to help them wake up every morning feeling valued and knowing that their contribution to the world is significant. We want to empower moms to find internal validation rather than seeking it externally through their businesses. This mission serves as our guiding star when deciding whether to pivot or tweak.

When making tweaks, it is best to start small and focus on yourself. Ask yourself if your brand still resonates with you, if your content is fulfilling, and if you are genuinely excited about your business. If you find that you are not driven or enthusiastic, it may be time to consider a pivot. However, it is important to remember that big, broad changes or starting new projects without a clear purpose often do not yield the desired results. Starting with yourself and making small adjustments that reignite your passion is the key to success.

Ultimately, the decision to pivot or tweak your business should be based on your guiding star, your purpose, and your long-term happiness. By understanding your motivations and seeking guidance, you can confidently move forward in your entrepreneurial journey. Remember that you are valued, valuable, and seen, and your unique ideas and contributions deserve to be shared with the world. Embrace the excitement and possibilities that lie ahead, and trust in your ability to make the right decisions for yourself and your business.
