[Episode 048] The Power of Pivoting with Monica Ortega

If change scares you, this episode is for you!

Monica Ortega grew up afraid of a lot, but she didn't know just how afraid she was until she started traveling. When she realized she wasn't alone in those fears, she thought, "There's a space [in the market] for that." 

In this engaging interview, we discussed:

  • How You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero helped her changed direction and start hosting her show
  • The scariest thing she's done so far while traveling (100 episodes in and 6 years later)
  • Her rule about trying new things (there's a lesson for all of us here).
  • Which of her pivots has been the most challenging
  • Monica's top 2 tips for making connections when traveling or moving
  • The pros of indie publishing when it came to her book, The Power of Pivoting
  • How to identify a "through-line" in a business that seems discombobulated (boy, did this one resonate with me!)


Monica Ortega is a professional on-camera host, author, speaker, and actress. She created the travel show Monica Goes back in 2014 to inspire others to break out of their comfort zones and go on adventures. As someone who's afraid of everything, she'll put herself through almost anything to show that if an average everyday person like her can do these things, anyone can. 

Monica emcees at some of the biggest music festivals in the nation, has been seen in over 20 commercials, and is the co-host on the podcast Stumblin' Forward. She recently published her first book The Power of Pivoting - How to Embrace Change and Create a Life You Love”. Her goal is to inspire others to face their fears, break out of their comfort zones, and learn to lean into the pivot.
