The Permission to Pivot Podcast

You're ready to find your community, to have more meaningful conversations, and to take some steps in a brand new direction. You've reached a point in your life where your mind and heart are suddenly much more open, you're asking a lot more questions and finding that the answers are much more colorful than black or white, and you're eager to try new things and carve your own path–even if it means pivoting in an entirely new direction, making a mistake, getting bruised, or getting temporarily lost along the way.

Welcome to the Permission to Pivot Podcast, a community for wide-eyed, open-hearted, creative individuals like you.

Kind Words from Listeners



Your Hostess (with the Mostest)

Producer and host of the infamous 1990s talk show, "Marissa's Late Night Talk Show," I've been itching to bring audio back into my life ever since. Now that I've upgraded from my Fisher-Price boom box and have a few more decades under my belt, I hope to explore what it means to live an intentional and meaningful life and to navigate the questions that come up along the way.
