Whether it is a financial crisis, relationship breakdown, critical illness, natural disaster or a global pandemic, life will hit you hard when you least expect it. Mike Tyson once said “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” The global pandemic blindsided society and uppercutted the world into a new normal. Businesses either died or thrived in this new environment. What separated the survivors from the casualties? How did they do it? It all came down to the pivot, which is your ability to adjust without losing hope.
Experienced businessman Michael Siervo saw this firsthand as his businesses struggled during the pandemic. He knew that he needed to embrace change or be a victim of it. As in the game of poker, sometimes you just throw your hands up and say “Screw it. I’m all in!” F*ck It! Let’s Pivot is about going ALL-IN on your business while setting aside old habits to adapt to new realities. Written during the height of COVID-19, he highlights how entrepreneurs, side hustlers, and go-getters pivoted from crisis to opportunity and turned a global pandemic into profit.

Michael Siervo combines humour, anecdotes, and statistics as he shares tips, tools and lessons from entrepreneurs who pivoted out of danger and into profit.
