Pivoting Your Business Model by Asking ‘What Do You Really Want’ with Katie Krimitsos: Podcast Ep. 085

Subscribe to the podcast!

When’s the last time you asked yourself: “What do I *really* want? What’s right for me *right now*?”

And then what happens if the business you’ve been building is not quite the right answer.

You can either ignore the answer and try to go down the same road, bumping into obstacles along the way.

Or, you can pivot your business model to better align with your mission, your lifestyle, and opportunities you see.

This is what my guest Katie Krimitsos, founder of Biz Women Rock, recently did.

She has built a very successful business (and podcast) coaching women entrepreneurs one-on-one, in masterminds, and at small retreats.

But, then something happened earlier this year that caused Katie to realize she needed to make some changes.

The result? A pretty big pivot in her business model from niche to mass.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • What happened and why Katie decided to make this shift
  • Her new business model of a podcast network and how that aligns with her mission and lifestyle
  • The benefits of having a podcast network vs. a single podcast
  • The specific phases Katie has laid out for marketing and revenue
  • How the change from niche/one-on-one marketing to relying on the masses/volume is both scary and exciting
  • How imposter syndrome shows up and what Katie does to combat it

Katie is very open and real and you’ll learn a lot from our conversation about honoring our multi-dimensional selves.

This episode is the first in a 4-part series related to podcasting. If you host a podcast or have a thought about it, this series will help you get better results. If you don’t have any plans for a podcast, still listen! The strategies we talk about can be applied in other areas too.
