Every person in their lifetime has a point of pivot. A pivot point, by nature, is transformative - offering options in the lifetime quest to define who you are and who you want to be. These points define you. What defines success or failure and to what degree you will succeed?
In The Power of Pivot, you'll explore the notion that uncommon success is realized through how you handle life's pivot points, not just with your actions, but with your words, your mindset, and your attitude as well. The Power of Pivot isn't just in the shift from one job to another or one business to another; from an unhappy place to a happy one; or from one dead-end sales process to a thriving sales funnel; from one deal to the next. The power comes from how you embrace the pivot; how you process what is happening in your mind and internalize it, and how you ultimately determine how you'll handle the pivot and what the change in direction brings.

“The lessons and skills discussed throughout Trevor’s first book were on full display when I had the great fortune to meet and work with Trevor when my band, the Georgia Satellites, performed at the Rock Out Hunger Concert to benefit Loaves & Fishes. Trevor immediately engendered a nostalgic feeling of having known him our whole lives through his unbridled enthusiasm, and down to earth approach. I was most impressed with his commitment to share the successes of his company through this philanthropic endeavor, and while unlikely the objective or motivation given his personal commitment to helping others in need, this event no doubt strikes home to many of the business development and management lessons touched upon in these pages.”
