395: 4 Easy Financial Habits for Successful Women
22:30

When everything on the outside feels OUT of control, I do my best to return to this: What can I control? What do I have power over? What can I ACTUALLY change? What habits, routines, or thoughts can I shift so that I don’t stay feeling stuck?

So while financials are a big, top-of-mind topic these days, let’s talk about financial habits that successful women possess. Because even though things may feel shaky and unpredictable in the economic climate, you DO have control over how you show up in your life and in this world. You have power over your approach to money, how you handle it, and your belief systems around it.

394: Are You Staying? What it Means and Why It Matters
47:47

I actually emailed her way back in 2011, when I was just starting my photography business. She graciously answered every question I sent as a complete stranger, thousands of miles away. Over the last decade we’ve been quiet cheerleaders for one another, but I will never, ever forget the way she showed up for me when I dropped into her inbox, a mere admirer of her photography. 

She’s a mother of five children, an author, a speaker, a retired photographer, and so much more. I want to get deep with Anjuli today, because she is so skilled at helping people unpack their vulnerabilities and understand the deeper places in their hearts. In this conversation we’ll chat about book writing and self-car and honoring her own time and space as a mother. I can’t wait for you to meet this woman.

393: The Importance of Narrowing Down Your Niche
27:11

Some business experts actually believe that the number 1 mistake new business owners make is NOT niching down enough, and therefore speaking to a massive, unspecific crowd rather than a highly fixed group of people who would BEST benefit from their product or service.

But I get it! When you’re starting out especially, you want to get as many clients or customers as possible. It feels scary to try and focus on a smaller group of people! Why would you want to exclude anyone? After all, customers equal profits which equals business health, right? Well, not exactly.

We’re going to explore this notion of digging into a niche and I believe this can set you apart and move you forward more than SO many other top business practices. If you’re not sure if you need to drive down into a niche, or aren’t certain how to find the right niche, or just want to inspect your biz a bit to be sure your niche is the right target for YOUR goals and trajectory, this is your episode.

392: Lessons in Fearlessness and Curiosity from a 15-Year Old CEO
42:21

Who here started a lemonade stand as their first endeavor into the business world? I did. My brother and I dragged a cooler of Kool-aid down to the end of our driveway and I’m pretty sure my mom called the neighbors to drive by so we’d get a few customers. My lemonade business started and ended there… But when this guest started her lemonade stand, it transformed into something much, much bigger.

Mikaila Ulmer is the youngest guest we’ve ever featured on the Goal Digger Podcast. She started her lemonade company at 4-years old. Now she’s the 15-year old CEO of Me & the Bees Lemonade and her special recipe lemonade is sold across the country. If you’ve got kiddos with the entrepreneurial bug, you’ll want them to tune into this episode… But let me tell you, Mikaila’s drive, her business acumen, and her mission to do good while running a profitable company is something we can all learn from, no matter what age.

391: Before & After Digital Course Academy: 3 Students Share Their Fears and Success
01:07:59

These three students decided to take their own plunge by investing in themselves and enrolling in Amy Porterfield’s Digital Course Academy. This program is the gold standard for anyone who wants to create, launch, and scale an online course… And that’s exactly what Danielle, Chrissy, and Nicole have done over the last year. But investing in the program wasn’t a decision that came lightly. Their fear and reservations could’ve prevented them from diving into the water -- could’ve held them back from all of the success they’ve seen since making the understandably fear-filled decision to invest. Is that you? Are you standing on the edge thinking, sure, creating an online course sounds great, but should I, could I really dive in?

That’s actually why Danielle, Chrissy, and Nicole are on the Goal Digger Podcast. They know better than anyone what it’s like to be where you’re standing, debating if this is the right jump. You’ll hear their before, during, and after stories of Digital Course Academy, as well as the reservations they had and how those went out the window as they started the course. I am so thrilled to have them here so you can picture yourself in their successes.

390: The Most Powerful Pivot You Can Make Right Now with Amy Porterfield
45:51

If we were to play word association for 2020, I’d bet the very last word that comes to mind is “certainty”. Many of us are watching our peers navigate big changes as we ourselves pivot and adapt. Whether it’s personally or professionally, we’re making decisions that we could’ve never predicted would be on our plates at the start of this year.

Pivoting is the theme of this conversation with my friend Amy Porterfield. She was one of the voices I was listening to when I pivoted into the online course world, and I’m so excited to have her on the show once again to talk about the meaningful and even profitable pivots she’s seen during this season. If you walk away from this episode with only one thing, let it be your permission to pivot. These stories will paint what’s possible.

389: The Real Story Behind How I Started Creating Online Courses
45:25

My very first dive into the deep end of the online course world was the result of a friend’s comment on a social media post. She was signed up for this “discovery” call with a business consultant and told me I should hop on, too. By the end of that call I was pitched a course and I made the investment, and those two choices were the start of my career as course creator.

Kylie is back on the show to ask me all the questions about online courses, what my very first course looked like, what I did to change my strategies from launch one to launch two, and I even challenge her on her own course creation objections… Plus, you have to hear about the email I sent to Amy Porterfield in 2016, back when I was a student, like you, looking for the next step in my business.

388: Is an Online Course Your Next Best Step? Listen to Find Out
53:16

You know you’ve got something to teach. But could you really put it into a course? I’m willing to bet the answer is YES. If you can coach one on one, if you can lead a group of people to see results, even if you’re teaching in an informal or unofficial capacity, then you’re equipped to dive into your first course.

Vanessa Hicks is an incredibly talented wedding photographer, she leads a 12-week mastermind group, and now she’s looking at her business in a pandemic world thinking about what’s next. A course is on her mind, and I know she has some questions about adding that to her education offerings. Is it the right next step? How should she approach the daunting task of putting her knowledge into a course? And where will she find her students? Those questions and more, coming up in this coaching session with my friend, Vanessa Hicks.

387: My Mentor Taught Me How to Uncover What You Can Teach
28:09

A funny thing happened when I was growing and gaining some success as an entrepreneur… people began coming to me and asking me how. How did I regularly get clients? How did I curate a social media presence that brought in awesome leads? How did I market myself to actually create consistent income in this unpredictable, heavy service industry? So much of what I was learning about entrepreneurship and marketing wasn’t from my college degree or someone teaching me — it was from DOING it.

What I’m completely certain of is that YOU have something like this inside of you, a certain life experience or even an obsession you’ve been pouring over for months or years, that uniquely qualifies YOU as an expert in that area. That’s what this episode is about — how to uncover that gift and turn it into something teachable for others! Because we all have these experiences and knowledge unique to our own walks of life that we can tap into and package into something we can share with others. You don’t have to be a trained “educator” to do it — you just need to be willing to do a little digging!

386: How She Crafted a Career Where Passion and Profit Intersect
43:18

Educator, advocate, activist, storyteller, consultant, philanthropist, dog mom… Just a few titles that my friend Jess Weiner can hang her hat on. What Jess does is so important -- She advises and leads massive brands on how to better reflect people and their diverse experiences within their media, marketing, advertising, and workforce.

She is a brilliant branding mind with a special super power of connecting companies with their communities. Jess is also expanding her work to connect with her own community and help people define what a “good life” means to them. I am so thrilled that she’s here on the podcast to dig into consulting, personal branding, marketing and messaging, building community, and more.

385: 3 Steps to Build a Business Concept You're Passionate About
23:55

Where passion and profit intersect… THAT is where you want to build your business. Most entrepreneurs get into doing their own thing for a few main reasons: to pursue independence, impact, or their passions. Often, it’s some combination of all 3 but along the way, it can be easy to lose sight of that initial intention.

That, my friend, is what we want to avoid. This episode is all about digging into those personal WHYs — the core values that motivate you and what you’re deeply interested in pursuing — and how to spin those things into a business model that grows with you, that doesn’t hold you down or stifle you. These are the 3 steps you need to take in order to build a business that sustains and supports your heart, desires, goals, passions and life trajectory.

384: The Secret to Selling with Certainty in Uncertain Times
49:11

Have you told yourself you’re bad at selling? That it’s scary or slimy? I have. Selling used to be my downfall. And then I learned (with the help of books and my coach and teachers like this guest) that selling requires a mindset shift. And this conversation will help you make that shift and start selling with confidence. 

Ivirlei Brookes leads her students through the same transformations that she’s experienced herself, which is what makes her coaching so impactful. Her mindset tools for reframing your approach to selling will help you shed that “slimy seller” feeling and stand in confidence knowing that YOUR offer is what the world needs, even these uncertain times for businesses everywhere.

Why not switch things up a bit? I’m tossing my interviewer hat to Kylie, the manager for the Goal Digger Podcast, and she’s putting me in the hot seat. Getting interviewed always brings out stories I’ve never thought to share, or methods and strategies that I’ve never revealed before.

If you want to know how I invested in myself at the beginning, which early days marketing strategies I still use right now, and which of my business fears actually came true… Keep listening.

380: She Launched a Course, Here Are Her Questions
44:45

I love coaching sessions on The Goal Digger Podcast because we get into the nitty gritty of topics that are on your mind, and explore questions you might also have about your own business. It’s a chance for me to sit down with someone and teach to exactly where they are at.

379: New Ways to Serve Your Email List in 2020
19:33

This episode is NOT about ways to sell to your list. We’ve all heard the stats about how every $1 spent on email marketing, about $44 is made in return. We KNOW that email marketing is the way to sell and see big profits, and I have tons of content that covers how to do that well. But one of the keys to success in selling to your email list actually has nothing to do with selling or introducing your offer.

It’s those in-between seasons, when you’re not in a launch or pushing a new offer, that you form strong bonds and lasting relationships with your list by serving them. And yet, so many people forget about their list until they have something to communicate about a new product or offer and there’s some sort of urgency in making a sale.

Let’s get into the 4 main different formats for serving your email list and being a valued resource in their inbox, not just another salesperson. C’mon and jump in with me!

43:27

Each time I make a new hire for my team, I think to myself: “HOW did we survive without this person?” This sentiment is especially true when it comes to Marisa Vittoria, my Integrator. Pre-Marisa, we were all honoring our own workflows, existing in a constant loop of Google Docs and Slack messages, and seeing what we’re capable of now… We were definitely not reaching our fullest potential. 

What does an Integrator do and do you need one on your team? And how can you be your own Integrator and establish systems to get your business achieving more? I’m so excited to formally introduce you to Marisa, but admittedly nervous for her to reveal the systems we didn’t have in place before she joined our team. Hey, it’s all in the spirit of helping YOU learn from where we’ve already been.

Is mindset front-of-mind for you? While you’re working on your business, crafting marketing messaging and dreaming up new ways to serve your clients, are you also working on you? As this guest will tell you, mindset is often the piece of the puzzle that’s holding you back from your greatest potential.

In this interview, Topsie will help you identify the excuses you keep telling yourself and reveal how they’re holding you back, explore why anxiety might be a gift for an entrepreneur, and how to recognize and navigate self-sabotage. Here she is, Topsie VandenBosch.

375: This is Why No One is Seeing Your Content
23:35

When I was just starting out, I blogged Monday – Friday for YEARS… And while it’s admirable or even shocking, looking back those blogs weren’t really doing much for me. In fact, they were sucking up my time and not getting me anywhere closer to my goals. I’d share a new blog post once on Facebook, and then move on to creating the next. It wasn’t until I started creating content with intention and a plan that I started to see REAL results.

The solution isn’t creating more and more and more. It’s not spending the majority of your time willing your creative juices to crank out just a few more sentences that hopefully *fingers crossed* make it in front of a potential client… The solution is tied to a simple purpose behind each piece of content you push out.

Results don’t just come from a little call-to-action at the end of your blog post. They come from creating with intention, certainty, and confidence, and you can do that when you have a plan. This episode shows you how.

373: What You Should Actually Be Blogging About

I believe that blogging isn’t just important for your business to run to its fullest potential… it’s necessary. But the MAIN issue I see entrepreneurs facing is just knowing what to write about. Writer's block is real and there’s only so much to cover in your area of expertise, right? Nope!

I want to share with you the things that you ACTUALLY need to be blogging about. Yes, some of this will fall within your business niche, but not always. This system has allowed me to blog 4 to 5 days a week for the 9 years I’ve been running a business and never run out of topics to write about. Plus, it allows you to create the right content that your audience wants and needs from you, so that they keep coming to you as the trusted expert in your arena. That’s something worth blogging about… Let’s jump in!

372: What It Means to Niche Down Your Journey and Live Into Your Work
35:02

Myisha T. Hill wears a lot of titles -- single mom, a speaker, an activist for Mental Health, an author… That list continues on, and yet she’s found a way to do those things well, and even thrive in each area. 

You might quickly think, wow, she’s got balance figured out, but that’s not what she teaches. Myisha is a life synergist, and through her work she debunks the myth of work/life balance, leading her students to find SYNERGY instead. If burn out, overwhelm, and confusion seems to narrate your life or business, this interview with Myisha will explore why you might be feeling that way, and how you can navigate out of it.

Myisha is also a guide for those navigating their anti-racism journey, and she shares actionable strategies for starting or continuing this important work. Press play and be sure to find Myisha at checkyourprivilege.co.

371: Pre-Launch Secrets to Create Buzz and Warm Up Any Audience
22:17

In the early days of my brand launching was more of a battle than a sweet cakewalk. Nowadays, we’ve got launching down to a T. We don’t have all the answers -- OH, we are still learning so much every single week and through every single launch. But truthfully it comes down to a lot of little things, and ONE major thing that makes the key difference.

I want to talk today about the pre-launch. I believe pre-launch, the period of time before you make the actual offer available or open the cart, is the make or break for a launch and the goal you want to hit. This is my exact framework for pre-launch… What I do in the days and weeks leading up to launch to make THAT time way more manageable, light, and rewarding.

370: How Her Mission to Fund Underestimated Founders is Changing Venture Capital
47:36

Arlan Hamilton is a champion for underestimated voices. With her company Backstage Capital, she has invested over $10 million in over 130 companies with underrepresented founders; those who identify as women, People of Color, or LGBTQ. Arlan herself identifies as all three, and she was sleeping on an airport floor when she knew she had to do something about the fact that no one in Venture Capital looked like her.

In this interview, Arlan digs into the catalyst moments that lead her to the world of Venture Capital, why she doesn’t believe in Imposter Syndrome, and what makes a strong pitch when it comes to raising capital for your company.

369: 3 Steps to Start an Email List (Even if You Don't Have a Business)
25:42

Please hit play for a personal and timely update from Jenna. As we move forward with our business content, please expect me to infuse content that is candid, sharing some of the things I am experiencing and learning in this time. This will be me removing the leader hat and leaning into being the student. I only ask that you stick around and learn with me, if you’re ready. Stay tuned as we adjust in forward motion. Now, onto the show.

When it comes to marketing, so many business owners are getting it wrong. They are so focused on social media and when social media is your ONLY marketing strategy, you’re building your business on borrowed land. You don’t own the followers, you can’t control the platform, you’re not in control of the changes, shifts, or the experience people are offered.

Business owners should have two main priorities -- that’s it -- two. You should be starting or growing your email list and the sole focus of your social media is to be the handshake, the connection creator, that invites people off of the platforms and on to said list.

Let's focus on your email list. The goal of my social media channels is to guide people to my email list so that I can serve them well in their inbox and eventually invite them to join a paid program or take advantage of an offer. That’s it. Digital marketing simplified, so let’s dive into all things starting your email list.

367: Answer These 3 Questions if You Want to Have it All
48:05

So I got a Peloton bike late last year, and I have to be totally candid here, I wasn’t sure if I’d fully buy into it. I knew I wanted a new way to move and care for my body so I followed the rave reviews of some friends and got this machine delivered to my house and vowed to just give it a shot.

Now let me be totally candid again — It’s not necessarily the bike that keeps me coming back every day. It’s this community of people cheering me on and sending virtual high fives, and maybe most of all, it’s the instructors. Ally Love is one of my favorites. Attending one of her classes is this spiritual experience, like I hop off that seat ready to take on ALL the things with positivity and light.

Ally is a master at building community and leading people to improve their lives not only through moving their bodies, but changing perspectives and pushing limits. In this episode, we discuss how she chooses positivity, why she believes women can have it all (if they know what ‘all’ means for them), and what the true meaning of balance is. Press play!

366: 11 Ways to See Life and Solve Problems Like an Entrepreneur
17:41

I’m sharing the 11 simple ways to start thinking like an entrepreneur -- because if I know one thing, it’s that entrepreneurs are often born of a need that only their individual gifts, personality, and experiences can fill.

No one is BORN an entrepreneur -- you become one over time and grow into that role like your big sister’s old hand me down shoes you used to wear. It starts out weird and uncomfortable, and then with time and experience, it becomes a natural way of being. It’s not an overnight thing, and it doesn’t happen by just creating an LLC or purchasing a domain.

So even if your idea isn’t fully fleshed out or you’re not totally sure if you could handle running your own business, let’s walk through 11 easy ways to start thinking, believing and acting like an entrepreneur.

I started to see a trend recently. More and more people are starting podcasts during their social isolation time, and it surprised me at first...But then it all made sense.

Practically the entire world is at home right now, and while lives are still busy and we still have responsibilities, it’s opened up this opportunity for some to have the time to dream again. And we’ve all got stories to share (maybe now more than ever) so a podcast? Well, it’s the perfect medium to get them out into the world.

363: Lo Bosworth Explains Why a Storytelling Strategy Works
40:52

One of my favorite shows of all time has to be Laguna Beach and I still watch all of the spinoffs that continue to grace our television screens to this day. So when the name Lo Bosworth rolled through my inbox I did a double take. THE Lo Bosworth wants to come on MY show, when I’ve been watching hers for years?

It’s so fun to see how Lo Bosworth leveraged that platform and created something of her own. But it wasn’t a straight line from a TV career to running her women’s wellness company. Her career is rich with learning curves and pivots, and honestly, I’m not sure you’ve heard this part of Lo’s storyline before. She’s the reality star we adored, now innovating for women’s wellness in ways you’re going to LOVE.

My days used to feel frantic and frazzled… But now, I’m focused and freed up, and it was all thanks to implementing his advice.

It can feel awkward and narcissistic and exhausting to try and show up on Instagram in the middle of a crisis and it can leave us second guessing every post… You might’ve found yourself wondering these same things over the past month or so: am I being insensitive? Am I invoking fear or panic? Am I an expert in this subject? Am I adding something truly helpful to the noise of social media right now?

Just because the world is paused around us doesn’t mean we don’t yearn for the same connection, joy, interactions, and realness that “normal” life brings about. In fact, it’s my belief that we need to share these little intricate normalcies NOW more than ever.

If you’ve been finding yourself tiptoeing around social media these days, not sure where to start or what to say, and how to say it, this episode’s for you. Let’s chat about the 5 ways you can show up well for your people in this season.

If you want to talk about putting in the work to make your dreams happen, you have to talk to my friend, Jamie Kern Lima. You might be wearing one of her products from IT Cosmetics right now… But before the billion dollar brand was even a thing, she was a TV news anchor struggling with sensitive skin who could never find a product that worked for her. 

She created a cosmetics brand that would go on to be more than just products, but an inspired community of millions of women who share their stories of overcoming their struggles with confidence and self-worth.

Jamie is a powerhouse business woman, an inspiring speaker, and warm spirit who is on the Goal Digger Podcast to talk all about how she built her brand from the ground up.

Dean Graziosi is my business coach, and he and I are very different. We approach almost all aspects of business and life differently, but sitting down with people who aren’t like you is exactly how you grow. We have this friendly banter as an odd couple in business, and I love learning from him.

I’ve shared conversations with Dean before on the Goal Digger Podcast, but I hope you don’t mind me opening up my little vault of content to share with you a conversation we recorded together with a vision of launching our own podcast together. The files have been hanging out, waiting for a plan, and I thought now was a perfect time to let you listen in on a different chat with my coach.

We broach the often controversial topic of money and happiness, and Dean shares his views on how the two are connected. I talk about my transition from corporate life to entrepreneurship, and why you might not ever get the permission you’re seeking to make a big jump in your life.

With social media, there’s one constant we can count on -- Change. Doesn’t it seem that just as we’ve got it all figured out, the powers-at-be switch it up again?

We’ve been in contact with them behind-the-scenes, working through the changes, and have been testing strategies over the last several months to be able to share them with you!

Have you ever talked yourself out of something even though you really *really* wanted to do it? When I’ve had this inner back and forth of should I, shouldn’t I, it’s because I know deep down what I WANT to do, but I’ve heard other voices in my head telling me why I shouldn’t or why I’m not qualified or why I’ll fail…

We ALL have these voices that come at us in the form of external messaging and then internal reminders, again and again and again. But we can learn to recognize our limiting beliefs, and decide to move past them in a healthy way so we can fulfill the great things we’re meant to do in this world.

I cried on our team call last week. You know the season we’re in is leaving no one unaffected by financial challenges or health worries or our sense of security and normalcy being shaken. I’m overwhelmed and exhausted. And I know I’m not unique in my experience. With layoffs and furloughs and business dropping out from under us -- Financial insecurity is impacting so many. 

So what can we do about it? How can we manage the fear, make the best decisions, and even just TALK about what we’re facing so our money isn’t a thing of anxiety, but a tool that gives us stability in uncertain times?

The expert for this conversation is Dominique Broadway, millennial money expert and founder of Finances Demystified.

This stuff is my JAM and I’m excited to nerd out with another course creator right now.

I watched everyone’s jaw drop to the floor when I told my team what this woman has accomplished.

At 15-years old Keiana Cave was researching the BP oil spill and inventing new ways of detecting toxins in seawater after spills. Before she was barely 20 she’d received millions in funding to continue her scientific research. Now at 21, she’s inventing a non-hormonal birth control pill. 

She is a scientist and a CEO, she’s a woman innovating for women, and she encourages girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math, too. Keiana is a brilliant mind and beautiful soul, and I’m so excited that she’s on the Goal Digger Podcast to share her story with you.

350: The Small Business Stimulus Package, Simplified: How to Determine Your Eligibility and Claim Your Money
41:11

Last week, the US Government passed an unprecedented $2 trillion dollar stimulus bill in response to the economic impact of COVID-19. That’s a lot of zeros, and with 883-pages in the bill, there’s a lot of info to digest. I’m not sure we’ve ever done this, but we released this episode less than 24 hours after we recorded it, because we know how important this information will be for you and your small business.

Casey Graham is the Co-Founder and CEO of Gravy, the leading failed payment recovery and customer retention solution for companies with recurring revenue. But more than that, Casey is a champion for entrepreneurs, and when the stimulus package passed, he was quick to dive into what it meant for small businesses with CPA and advisory experts, so he could break it down and translate the language for us on the podcast today.

Casey will answer what a stimulus package is, what it means for small businesses, who qualifies, what you need to do to claim it, and all of the important nitty-gritty details broken down into one episode, because I know you’re not using your quarantine time to read all 883-pages of that bill.

Straight to the facts. Let’s talk about the $2 trillion dollar stimulus package and what it means for YOU.

349: Behind the Scenes of a Non-Profit
35:29

Are you curious about the inner workings of a non-profit? Have you thought maybe a non-profit could be your calling? Are you entrepreneurial minded and want to impact the world with the business you build? This episode is for you.

Hannah Skvarla started The Little Market alongside Lauren Conrad because they wanted to find a meaningful way to give back. Their goal was to create a sustainable way to help women around the world break the cycle of poverty and create a better future for themselves and their families.

348: How to Safeguard Your Small Biz During the Coronavirus Outbreak
26:45

This season we’ve suddenly been thrown into is heavy. It’s brought a lot of uncertainty and devastation and things are shifting rapidly. Businesses have bolted doors, schools have been canceled for the remainder of the year, and people who make a living off of hourly work are wondering when’s the next time they'll be able to meet with clients, offer their services and make a living again.

It’s absolute turmoil and completely heartbreaking, from the chaos and panic of a quickly spreading and deadly illness to the impact this disease has already had on business owners and families everywhere. And it’s equally frightening that no one saw it coming and no one knows when things will take an upswing. 

So while I hate the circumstance, I can tell you that in this season of waiting, time is the resource that can help you pivot, grow and expand the most. My hope is that you take this time and space to breathe again, dream again, and put steps into motion to keep this thing running WELL after we’ve made it through this challenging season. 

So let’s get into the tangible steps to take right now to keep your business flourishing now and next week and next year and beyond.

347: These 5 Things Will Make or Break Your Biz
43:55

Ready to START and SUCCEED but don’t know where to begin? This is for you.

Nothing feels more intimidating than starting. Judging by the amount of DMs and comments I see about how I got started in my business, I feel like you might agree that starting can be the hardest part.

My friend Natalis Ellis is co-founder of BossBabe, a community for unapologetically ambitious women. Sounds like my kind of community, right? It has since grown into a massive resource with over 15 million members learning how to start, grow, and scale their businesses.

Natalie also knows that starting can be the hardest part, and that’s why the babes behind BossBabe created a framework around it. Our goal for this episode is to demystify the how of starting your business, what you can do to move from side hustle to full time, and why being resourceful is more important than having resources.

346: Affiliate Marketing Strategies for the Decade
26:46

Affiliate marketing is one of THE best ways to start generating passive income and getting paid to share the things you already adore AND that you likely already share with your people because of said adoration.

Anyone with a following can pursue it to make more money -- without creating, packaging, shipping, or building a darn thing... Other than content. 

It’s not about having thousands, tens of thousands, or a million-plus followers. It’s not about having any air of celebrity or a household name. It’s not even about whether you consider yourself an “influencer” or not. The KEY is that if you want to successfully affiliate with a brand and see success doing it, there NEEDS to be passion and authenticity behind who you choose to represent and partner with. This episode covers it all.

I love speaking with and for women on this podcast. But when I saw this man’s name land in my inbox, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to offer a different perspective on the show. This is a great discussion to hear together with your partner.

Dave Hollis is COO of The Hollis Co. He’s also husband to one of my friends who you may know very well, Rachel Hollis. And in this episode we discuss what it’s like being the husband of that very successful woman. I ask him about gender roles, about imposter syndrome, and the lies men continue to believe about how a real man acts or feels. I can’t wait for you to hear this conversation.

344: Stop Trading Time for Money Today
34:04

Are you still in the bustle of trading your precious hours for money? Wait, wait, did you know your TIME is worth something? Maybe you’re like, “nah, that’s not me. I’m not an hourly employee, and I don’t charge an hourly fee for my services. I don’t trade time for money.”

No matter what you do, life is a game of time and money, right? That was the name of my game for the first 5 years of my business. I only got paid when I showed up. The only way I could scale my business was through working more, that was it. There was nothing scaleable about it, there wasn’t a secret recipe to make money while I slept. I was in the business of trading time for money.

I realized a couple years ago how very fleeting and special time is. I can always create more services, products, and offers, but time? I can’t get that back, ever, so it’s become my absolute number one priority to protect it. Anyone, no matter what line of business you’re in or what your work style is, you have the ability to make small shifts to begin transitioning away from trading your time for money.

Let’s really get into the tactical steps you can be taking to gradually move away from this time for money standard.

343: The Four Letter Word You Need to Ditch Right Now
49:32

What’s really holding you back from scaling your business? Do you ever feel like you’ve got the systems, your client base is there, you’re ready to invest your time but then… A mental roadblock pops up. Your self-limiting beliefs creep in and you’re stalled before you even start.

When fear and self-doubt threatens your dreams, you not only feel it, but other people can sense it. Showing up confidently is the key to communicating your message and getting others to share in it… But that’s easier in concept than execution. I called in the leader of Business Boutique and Ramsey Personality Christy Wright for this episode because she has a gift for helping women change their mindset in their businesses to allow for growth. Or heck, even just giving yourself permission to start. 

This is a conversation for anyone wanting to retool their mindset, show up confidently, and tell fear to take a hike so you can start right now. Sound like you? Press play.

342: 5 Ways to Utilize Social Media if You’re Starting from Ground Zero
32:24

I can’t help but laugh when I scroll back to my earliest days on instagram. There are grainy photos of my dogs and random #inspirational quotes I found who knows where filling my feed, which by the way, had ZERO consistency or flow. My aesthetic was NOT right, sis. I’d post when I felt like it and didn’t have a strategy. 

Everyone starts somewhere, right? And even though I teach instagram and social media strategy now, I didn’t always have thousands of followers and a clear vision for how the social media world could transform, enhance, and even sustain my business. 

The “starting” phase is easily the hardest and most gritty because we often think of alllll the things we need to do and get overwhelmed. This episode is about paring it down, simplifying and removing the barriers to entry so you can legit get started right away. By the end of this episode, I want you to be equipped to begin nurturing your following and stepping into the person and business owner you’re becoming.

So you took a leap and you handed over a chunk of money and now you’re all signed up for a course that promises XY and Z to improve your business or systems or lifestyle. Or maybe your finger is hovering over an online course that you’ve been eyeing up for a while and you’re not sure what happens after you confirm your purchase… You buy it, then what? How do you stay interested and follow through to implement, especially as life happens fast and furiously on the side?

Let’s talk about how to make your money spent on a course a worthy investment, from how to know if a course’s expense actually makes sense for your business or life, to the steps it takes to truly follow through on taking all the lessons and implementing them in a way that will make your investment worth it. 

I’m also going to share MY exact process for getting courses done and taking advantage of the materials, because you know the course queen herself has a few secrets up my sleeve to make this whole thing efficient AND actionable, my two favorite words.

339: You're Only 7 Questions Away from Your True Why
57:06

What is your why? What is the true reason you jump out of bed and keep cruising toward your dreams, even when it gets really stinking tough? Getting to the heart of your why is the single biggest factor in sticking with your goals no matter how rough the road gets. And I don’t say this in theory, I say it because I know. Ever since trying this exercise, my vision of my why has never been clearer, and my drive to continue the work that I’m doing has never been stronger.

It’s called Seven Levels Deep, and it’s from the only course I took last year called the Knowledge Business Blueprint. Seven Levels Deep is, “a very important tool with the main focus of anchoring in your ‘why’. There may not be a more powerful motivating factor on the planet than knowing your true ‘why’. When you know; in your soul, why you get up every morning and fight for your dreams, you’ll never let anything get in your way of becoming the person you are meant to be.”

Bonus: The Question I Always Wanted to Ask Tony Robbins
56:22

There’s a big reason Tony Robbins is so successful, and it’s not just his business acumen. He’s undeniably charismatic and big-time energetic. He dials into your potential and gifts within 15 seconds of talking to you, and boldly encourages you to seek and draw them out.

I know Tony isn’t for everyone but I will always seek out the opportunity to learn from people who are different from myself, who approach their businesses differently than I approach my own… Because when you look for leaders who look exactly like you in all ways, you’re never challenged. Tony challenged me over the past year.

That’s why I am thrilled to share this conversation with you, so you can learn from a mentor of mine who approaches his life and business differently than I approach my own. We get into the man beyond the titles. I ask his advice for identifying the valuable gifts you’ve got bottled up inside and for evaluating mentors and educators. We talk about the knowledge business and what the future looks like for online educators like us. And I challenge him: Why the heck hasn’t he retired yet?

This episode feels like opening up my diary and sharing it with the world… Minus all the mushy love-y dovey stuff, of course! 

It's time to talk numbers, what worked, what sucked, where I thrived and barely survived. I'm baring it all (in my cozy sweater in my closet) so that you can learn from my last 365 days.

321: Suck at Saying No? Listen to this.
51:51

No. Nope. No, thank you. No way in heck. 

Those are a few options you could use to turn down an opportunity that doesn’t quite align or interest you… But today’s guest is an expert in setting boundaries and saying no lovingly. Saying no with love. What does that sound like?

I like to think I’m pretty good at setting boundaries and saying no. Actually, my calendar last year was as empty as it’s ever been. But Darrah’s template for saying no that she developed after getting rejected from Brene Brown is something I’m ready to steal for my own life and business.

If you are ready to design your life by filling it with the right opportunities and saying no to the ones that don’t align, PRESS PLAY.

320: 10 Surprising Lessons Learned in the Last Decade
25:06

DECADE CHALLENGE: Do you recognize the YOU from 10 years ago?

How the heck has another year come and gone? I’m feeling all sorts of nostalgia as we approach a new decade and I think it’s time to really reflect on the lessons I’ve learned, what’s gone well and moments I will always cherish. It’s just as important to me to dig into how I’ve messed up, how I’ve grown, pivoted, and transformed, too.

This episode is all of that: I dig into what I’ve learned about defining success, the hustle mentality, the value of time, the hard seasons of life, and more. Press play right now and reflect with me.

29:08

It doesn't matter how successful, or driven, or hungry you are to reach the next level, we ALL hit lulls in our businesses at some point or another. 

Often times, it's not even because of our actual business. Maybe our business is seasonal? Maybe we’ve been coasting or traveling the world? Maybe we're facing a heartache in our personal lives or financial troubles with our spouse. Or we’ve welcomed a new human into the family.  

Whether you just thought what worked in the past would always work or life just got in the way, let’s talk about 5 ways to refresh a stale business.

316: Why It Doesn't Matter That Someone Else Had Your Idea First
21:50

We’re at epidemic status in the business and entrepreneurial world.

It's a mindset epidemic more than anything else. The creative- and entrepreneurial-minded often get held back by the belief that an idea has already been done, or the market is too saturated, so they shouldn't jump into a space they're interested in pursuing because too many people are already doing that thing. 

If you've been held back by the fear that something's already been done, I want you to know that your individual approach, your unique background and one-of-a-kind experiences have NEVER been utilized and they will NEVER be utilized if you keep falling prey to this lie.

There is enough to go around, there is room for you at the table and by the end of this episode, I hope you truly believe that, too. Press play right now.

I’m about to tell you a big fat lie about your biggest, juiciest dream: You’re too late. There’s no time. 

When you think of that ONE thing you'd love to accomplish if you had all the time, money, resources, and confidence to do it... what would it be?

Okay, now think of that big dream and run through all the excuses you’ve fed yourself as to why you haven’t started yet. I’ll bet five bucks that “time” is at the top of the list. And it’s a big fat lie.

If you've been debating with yourself whether it's too late to start, or whether you have enough resources, or if something else is holding you back from gripping your dream and finally just going for it -- This episode will convince you otherwise. Think of it as a warm hug paired with tangible advice to launch into your dream, once and for all.

312: Defining Enough As an Entrepreneur
43:09

“All of our friends push way too hard and compromise way too much sanity.”

Whew. What a statement. I was texting one of my mentors-turned-friends when he said that to me. We were talking about this past year in my business and personal life, I shared I’d worked the least but felt the most success. I was living out the scene of success I had in my head for so long. 

The hustle mentality and culture that’s being crafted around entrepreneurship is making us believe that hustle equals happiness. But that’s the opposite of what I’ve encountered because I defined “enough” for myself along time ago. 

What would it look like if you defined enough for you and your business, freed up time to explore your passions, side hustles, or just rest? How could that change your life?

Let’s find your own threshold of success. Let’s ditch pushing too hard and compromising your sanity. This episode will help you master your own mindset and define “enough”.

She survived a tiger shark attack at 13-years old and was back on her surfboard four weeks later. 

She went on to inspire the world with her courage, dedication, athleticism, and fearlessness. That’s the unforgettable story we already know about Bethany Hamilton. 

But there’s more about Bethany that you don’t know yet. There are chapters and seasons of Bethany’s life that left me completely in awe of everything she has pursued and accomplished. Ahem, Bethany just launched an online course… yup!

How is that story that the world knows so well intertwined with the woman Bethany Hamilton is today? What is her relationship with fear? How does she redirect moments of comparison and “what if?” What is her world like now, as a mom and an athlete?

This woman lives up to the title of her new film. Bethany Hamilton is truly “Unstoppable”.

Any day can be your day one. Is today yours?

I feel like I’ve lived many “day ones” in the different stages of my journey. Day one has felt like entire seasons of trying new things and learning what worked. It’s a lot of testing strategies, messing up, creating systems, and investing in new tools and education to keep growing.

When I opened up a new “Ask Jenna Anything” on Instagram, I received more questions than ever about getting started. You want to start something right now and you have so many questions about where to begin. I am so THRILLED for you.

I know my business looks wildly different from my day one. Maybe you can’t picture yourself in this setting… Yet. But in this episode I’m answering your questions about DAY ONE so we can walk through the start together.

That’s B for Barbara Corcoran. Listen, I know that first line feels click baity but I promise there’s a pay off here. Barbara Corcoran is taking the Goal Digger hot seat and I am so excited about it. 

Maybe her rags to riches story can’t be perfectly duplicated. Maybe she can’t give us the perfect 1-2-3 steps to transform from diner waiter to real estate mogul. But I’m willing to bet that you don’t reach Barbara’s level of success without a keen eye for a good investment, stellar selling strategies, or fearless negotiation.

Fair warning: We both shed tears during this conversation.

“Ed Mylett wants to interview you.” I remember that email landing in my inbox. 

With so much time and effort focused on making THIS show great, I don’t say yes to many outside interviews these days. So I am so proud and honored to share this conversation I had with Ed. I’ve never been this real before, and I’m grateful Ed invited me to tell my story in a new way.

I invite you to listen with your heart wide open, because that’s how I shared my world with him, talking about the darkness I faced through multiple miscarriages, how trusting the plan doesn’t mean the path will be easy, my deepest insecurity these days and the difference between being business women vs. men.

40:42

The cover art for the Ed Mylett Show shows a sunglass-wearing Ed, a guy who clearly spends some time in the gym walking with swagger you can sense through the photo, and his private jet and Bentley providing the backdrop. Who IS this guy?

Ed Mylett’s podcast is consistently holding down the top 50 on Apple Podcasts and he is in the Top 50 Wealthiest under 50. Ed decided from a young age that if he was going to work for a living, he was going to work for himself and call his own shots. He is a leading speaker in the business space and with his podcast and YouTube channel teaches millions how to elevate and maximize their lives. 

We sat down for a conversation at his Laguna Beach home a few months ago and I’ll be honest, it’s not often I invite men to the show, but Ed’s story is so interesting to me. We kick off this episode with a question no one’s ever asked him before: Who is Ed Mylett beyond the titles? And his answer truly shocked me.

302: How to Deal with Difficult Clients, Refunds, and Unsatisfied Shoppers
34:58

Negative reviews. Angry emails. Refund requests. Stubborn or needy clients. Snippy social media comments. Passive aggressive communication.

If you own a business, you've dealt with some, if not all of these -- I’m talking about negative feedback from customers or clients, and if you're a human, you know it never feels good.

But rather than harping on the criticism, moping in feelings of rejection, or lashing out against the naysayers, I want to walk you through the exact system my team and I use to deal with unsatisfied customers, negative feedback, and refunds.

That's right… In true Jenna Kutcher fashion, we've created a system around even the touchiest of subjects: refunds, feedback, and criticism. And honestly, it was probably one of our smartest moves.

300: How to Hit Your Profit Goals Through Price Setting
36:45

How much do you cost?

One of the most challenging parts of running a business, especially in the beginning, is putting a price value that's fair, smart, not to mention profitable on the products and services we offer. 

I invite you to hit play on this episode if you’re wondering if your price is right -- Bob Barker style -- that it's not too high and pushing potential customers away, or too low and practically giving away your resources for a steal. 

Should your price reflect the late nights? Hours of dreaming? Time, effort, and passion you put into creating this THING and pushing it out into the universe?

Pricing isn’t a one-size-fits-all structure, but let’s talk about it. This episode is a chat about crunching your numbers, drilling into them to find a realistic dollar amount to charge, how to create a unique experience to back up your rates, plus my personal philosophy about how to approach discounts.

What do you want to be when you grow up? 

How did you answer that question growing up? It can be anxiety inducing when you’re multi-passionate or when you haven’t quite figured out what your true purpose is. It can be an even worse question when you’re already on one path and realize, maybe this isn’t my thing?

Shea McGee is part of the husband and wife team behind Studio McGee, an interior design firm known across the country for a bright and clean aesthetic.

But Shea didn’t start there. In fact, she earned a degree in a completely different field before realizing that what she really wanted to do was design. So she changed her path and created the life and business she knew she was meant for.

We’re talking about that question: What do you want to be when you grow up? And how to make strategic, measured changes to pivot the degree or experience you have, into the purpose you know you’re meant to serve.

37:04

Let’s play a game of word association. Ready? The word is CEO.

What do you think of? I used to think of an old white man sitting in a boardroom leading a meeting.

Let me tell ya, that vision has changed big time. It looks like a strong woman, a woman with vision, creating a business that serves others and creates a life she has always dreamed of living. I see her when I look in the mirror. 

Claiming that CEO title and seeing yourself when you think of those three letters isn’t easy. You might still think of yourself as a hobbyist, a side-hustler, a small business owner… But CEO? That title is harder to claim when imposter syndrome starts creeping in.

Would you believe me if I told you that you can make money selling stuff that you didn’t even create, test, or fund?

It’s true! That's the name of the game with affiliate marketing, and spoiler alert, you don't need a Kylie Jenner level following to be successful at it.

Think about this… How often do you recommend your hairstylist, your favorite hotel, that skincare product that changed your life, or another product or service that you adore to your friends or following online?

We all do it to some extent, and affiliate marketing done really, really well can be a monetarily rewarding version of you sharing your very favorite things. 

It requires strategy, but it doesn't require a whole lot of blood, sweat, and tears that can often come when we launch our own products in our own businesses. 

This episode is your guide to tangible strategies to affiliate the right way AKA not feeling phony or slimy. Plus, advice for picking companies to work with that align with what you can authentically sell and what you’re audience wants to buy.

Why is it so scary to hand off a piece of your business to someone else? When you're the one running the show, it can feel impossible to hand over even a little bit of the reigns.

It could be a time thing (who has the TIME to hire and train someone?) or it could be a trust thing… Like who could actually do the thing just as good as you?

I get it because I've felt ALL of these emotions. I was gripping onto my business with white knuckles to the point where I just felt straight up fatigued, but at least I was handling it all myself, right? …Wrong. 

This episode will help you identify if you’re ready to outsource and walk you through how to start outsourcing in a way that doesn’t scare you. In fact, it might actually bring you a great deal of happiness.

ARE YOU INTELLIGENT? READ ON. 

Feelings and Emotions? What’s the big diff?

We use the terms interchangeably but understanding the difference between the two, and knowing how our emotions impact our lives, inform our decisions, and lead our success, isn’t innate knowledge we’re born with…we’ve gotta learn.

What is emotional intelligence? Can it be measured? Should it be measured? And if it’s measured, what can we do with that metric? All of these questions, plus a whole bunch more… I’m so thrilled to welcome Tieko Nejon. 

She is a sociologist, educator, and certified emotional intelligence practitioner and she is here to educate you, and me, in emotional intelligence. It’s a topic I’ve never tackled on the show before, so I am so eager to take notes right alongside you.

43:35

From idea to course in 7 DAYS. Yup, it’s possible. 

You might be thinking, "Oh, she has a huge team of people to help her," or "She's already made a bunch of courses so she's way ahead of me." 

Yes, I have created courses before, and I did have help from ONE team member, but this is a feat that is totally reachable and doable for you to achieve, too, even if you don't have a team or experience creating courses.

In this episode, I’m peeling back the curtain on The Podcast Lab creation and launch process. This is how we strategically created, recorded, laid out, reverse engineered, and launched an incredible course faster than any others I've done.

You could be just 7 days away from your first course. Are you feelin’ as giddy as I am about this?

Amy Porterfield is back by popular demand for a two-part interview breaking down the thing she does best: Digital Courses.

I know that mindset, I know that feeling of curiosity and fear.

289: The First Course I Ever Took and What It Did For My Business
32:14

 

The FIRST online course I ever paid for back in 2015 and the crazy thing that happened next… ya ready?

 

Before all of *this* I was just a wedding photographer, trading time for money, being a weekend warrior, with hardly anyone on my email list trying to figure out how to be happy, how to create a business that could run while I rested, and how to be successful working for myself in my PJs.

And then I threw my credit card at the course after sitting in on a webinar and I committed myself fully to the program. Now, I’m really proud of the fact that I’m one of the success stories... my business flourished because of this mentor’s teachings, and we’re now we’re great pals to boot. 

In today’s episode, I’ll walk you through how one course changed things for me and how I approach taking online courses so I get results every single time. I’ll share how I went from an eager student starting at the bottom to one of the greatest success stories of all time for a mentor who turned into a dear friend. Press play right now.

288: How to Figure Out Anything as a Multi-Passionate Entrepreneur with Marie Forleo
54:08

What’s that three word phrase that kicks off a race? READY? Set. GO!

It makes a few assumptions: That you have to be READY before you can set yourself up to GO. It might make sense for a foot-race, but otherwise, it’s totally wrong.

If we all waited for when we were ready to go anywhere or do anything, we’d never begin. You need to start before you are ready. That’s what Marie Forleo did.

Chances are if you’re in the online business space, you’ve heard of B-School and it’s incredible creator, Marie Forleo. Over 50,000 students have learned effective online marketing strategies from Marie’s B-School, and thousands more tune into her online series Marie TV for training in business, mindset, and more. 

There are SO many topics I could dive into with Marie, but I wanted to hit a big one that shows up again and again for dreamers waiting for the right moment to make things happen. We’re talking about how to start before you are ready, and how to even figure out WHAT you should start.

33:09

Raise your hand if you love selling. Anyone? Anyone? No? I see way more people with their hands way down. I get it. We’ve all been sold to in a way that feels sleazy, pushy, and manipulative and we don’t want to be those people. 

As consumers we’re naturally inclined to be skeptical of whatever product or service is being peddled. That mindset block transferred over to me as an entrepreneur, and it took some careful undoing to finally realize that I can sell differently. And you can, too.

This episode will work to retool your own mental blocks around selling. I will walk through the actual steps you can take in your business to sell with authenticity and realness, rather than feeling like you're bothering your people or, worse, losing members of your audience simply because you're selling the things you believe in.

52:29

BAD ADVICE: Don’t even THINK about launching until you have [insert arbitrary number here] subscribers on your email list.

GREAT ADVICE: There is no minimum number. You can have a successful launch with a small list. You just need a strategy. Tarzan Kay is here to help.

She argues that you don’t need a BIG email list, you need a mindset shift and a new approach that will turn your list, at any size, into a money-maker. It’s not a one-and-done process, but a launch of any kind is the most crucial phase of the whole process and believe me, it’s worth the mental energy and effort you’ll put into it. 

Tarzan Kay has worked with Amy Porterfield, Marie Forleo, and so many other massive names in the online space… And she’s here for YOU.

277: The Secret to Overcoming Imposter Syndrome
25:07

Imposter syndrome is feeling out of place in the scenes you’ve dreamed up for yourself. It’s reaching that big goal and looking around thinking, “I don’t belong here, someone is going to call me out, I’m not supposed to be here.” 

Imposter syndrome plagues even the most accomplished, successful people because it has nothing to do with our qualifications or experience. Imposter syndrome attacks your confidence and changes your inner dialog, and it can impact your productivity, big time. 

Imposter Syndrome is psychological, and I’m not a psychologist… However, I muscled through the feelings of “not good enough” and “who do I think I am?” so I want to share with you my own personal experiences, how I tackled my own imposter syndrome, and mix that with careful research from some trusted sources.

My business mantras include -- One: Done is better than perfect. Two: Nothing is urgent. And Three: Don’t build your business on a platform you can’t control. 

I can’t tell you how many DMs I get every time Facebook or Instagram does down, hundreds of panicked people wondering how they’ll get their message heard if they can’t post to Instagram that day.

You know I like to show up on Instagram and it’s always been a great way to connect and communicate with my audience and ideal customers, but there’s something I’ve learned and I am so passionate about it, I’ll never stop sharing the importance of it: You need an email list. 

When Instagram goes down -- No sweat. I can still reach my audience, and even more directly, with my email list. Instagram is the handshake, but email closes the deal.

Today I’m working with one of my students, Natasha Smith, for a coaching session all about email lists. She’s a little apprehensive about building her list, she doesn’t want to sound sales-y and she’s not entirely sure what would convert best for her business. Class is in session!

273: Why I Shouldn't Have Been Afraid to Become a Mom
31:42

I was afraid to have a baby. I wasn’t a maternal woman, I loved work so much, I enjoyed every ounce of freedom, I wanted Drew to myself, I didn’t want to “ruin” my body and I required 10 hours of sleep a night... 

There were so many reasons why I worried about becoming a mom and yet this yearning came on, 5 years into marriage after we vowed we’d never have kids.

That was the start of a caption I shared just one month into motherhood. It’s how I felt before I knew how I would morph into a new version of myself, one I never imagined myself becoming. 

Maybe it’s because we waited three long years or we prepared for the worst. I realized those fears were taking up space that could have been filled with dreams. Being a mom is the BEST thing I’ve ever done and it’s stretched me in new ways.

With this episode, I want to speak to the women who want to become a mom but feel fear. My fear ran deep, too. Today I’m sharing how motherhood has changed both me and my business, and what I’ve learned that told me I never had anything to be afraid of at all.

The one change I made that lead to major Instagram growth? Posting photos of ME. And ever since I started sharing more of ME on my Instagram feed, I’m asked who takes my photos. People wonder if I hire a photographer or go to a fancy studio every time I need a new shot for my feed.

I don’t and you don’t have to either. All you need is this episode and the willingness to try something that might feel a little uncomfortable at first.

I’m a photographer, and I know how to get the best shots of other people, but I’ve also adapted some of those same techniques to take photos of myself, and not just an iPhone selfie as arms-length away. And because you might be looking for advice on posing and feeling natural when someone else is taking a photo of you, I'm serving up some of my favorite tips for when you DO hire a photographer to get the shot (or bribe your husband or partner to do the job!)

These are my tips to feel confident taking photos of yourself and getting shots you can’t wait to share in your feed.

268: What No One Told Us About Parenting
44:10

So much has changed in my world since the last Ask Jenna and Drew Anything.

We recorded it waaay back before Conley was born, and before we knew just how much that sweet little baby girl would shift everything we thought we knew about ourselves, about my business, and about how we do life together.

We’ve talked about everything from our first kiss to how we balance our roles as husband and wife on the show, but now Drew and I are in a new season with our daughter as a centerpiece of our lives, and I wanted to share how we’re feeling and what we’ve learned since day one of parenthood.

We’re answering your questions from Instagram and Facebook, and in true Kutcher form, we’re not holding back on this. I’m so excited to welcome my husband, Drew Kutcher, back to the show for another Ask Us Anything.

30:57

Becoming an entrepreneur has you writing a lot these days: Captions, content for your website, messages in emails… It’s a TON of work, and you don’t love being a copywriter. I get it.

Here’s the thing -- Words are like the connective tissue of our brands. They make you easy to relate to, connect with, and understand on a deeper level, and they hold your brand together with a cohesive story across several platforms. See, our businesses aren't just the things we sell to other people. The WORDS that lift up our businesses shed light on more than just what we're selling.

I’m sharing 5 EASY copy fixes that you can make TODAY. Tune in, then log off and put these tips into motion. Because your words matter and it’s time to put some confidence behind yours.

266: A Vulnerable Discussion on Privilege with Miss USA 2018
46:18

I strive every day to check my privilege. I want to DO BETTER as a white woman to celebrate the diversity in this community, and recognize where I can be a positive force for inclusion and representation of all of the wonderful ways we are all different. 

I’m learning how to better speak about the tough topics. I’ve been SCARED to say the wrong things, so I’ve said nothing at all. But I know that there’s always room for growth and progress through having these tough conversations. 

In this episode, I’m having a tough conversation. When I first spoke to Sarah Rose Summers, she was nearly halfway through her term as Miss USA 2018 and preparing for the Miss Universe competition in Thailand. I loved our conversation, but it never made it to air.

You might remember the headlines that came out of the competition, the story about Miss USA and the comments she made about another contestant. We held off on airing her original episode, because my team and I knew we had an important responsibility and opportunity to face a tough topic head on and have a larger conversation about what happened and what we’ve all learned. 

I am thrilled to welcome Sarah Rose Summers to Goal Digger today.

Yes, we are two white women, stepping up to the mics to talk about diversity, race, and inclusion. I want to have a real, honest conversation that gets us all thinking of ways to do better, grow, be challenged, and show up after we’ve messed up.

265: This ONE Method Could Transform Your Email List
46:25

Pick a lane, commit to it and follow through. That’s what I tell my students, because it’s true, consistency is one of the biggest factors of success. So, are you consistent with your email marketing?

This is one of the KEY areas you need to dial it in. It’s the most reliable way to reach your audience. It should be on your short list of places you’re going to show up consistently. 

Maybe you’ve listened to my advice and started a list but you’re struggling with the consistency part. Or maybe it’s been at the bottom of your to-do list for the last two years, or maybe you’re just not sure you’re doing it right… If you’re panicking, take a deep breath.

I’ve got you -- today is a training in email lists, how to nurture your peeps, and serving your audience well and all you’ve gotta do is listen.

264: What to Do When You Feel Out of Alignment
49:18

Today’s guest, Sazan Hendrix grew up the daughter of immigrant Middle Eastern parents. Her family valued hard work, but a career in the public spotlight was not encouraged.

She faced cultural opposition and yet she pushed through to find her voice and identity, inspiring women across the globe to do the same. Sazan’s success is undeniable, right? A million followers, sold out products, a top-rated podcast. But she reached a point where the world saw her as one thing, and she felt totally out of alignment with that image.

I loved hearing about Sazan’s life before she grew her business, and the changes she made when her sweet baby entered this world, so she could show up in a way that was totally true to who she is now. If you’ve ever felt conflicted and out of sync with the person you are inside and the one showing up in your squares on social media, this is your episode.

262: Goal Digger Coaching: How to Start and Grow a Podcast
50:29

Podcasting? There’s more to it than you’d think. I’m asked all the time: What do I need to start a podcast? What do you use to record? How do I get sponsors and make money? Should I outsource any step of the process?

When I started the Goal Digger Podcast, I was balancing my computer on my lap in the car so the dogs wouldn’t bark and mess up the recording. Now? Well, there’s still no fancy studio... all of this happens from a spare closet at my house, with a simple mic setup, some Internet magic, and a whole lot of help from my team. I’ve learned so much from day one of starting a podcast.

18 million downloads later, my team and I have our podcast system down to a science that allows us to release FREE quality content two times a week just for you. In this episode, I’m answering those questions and more with a special guest, Tori Maloney. It’s another Goal Digger Coaching Session, and I’m at the mic to help work through some podcasting challenges with a Goal Digger like you.

261: 5 Tips to Structure Your Work Day and Stay Productive
24:49

Productivity is a tug of war and staying focused seems like a finicky art we’re all still trying to master.

You know what you have to finish in a day to reach those goals, so why is it SO HARD to get it done? My guess -- because it comes from experience -- you need a makeover. I’m not talking hair or clothing or anything that, because you look GREAT... I mean your routine.

If your productivity is lacking, you need to rework your current workflow habits to find a new groove to do your best work. I’m breaking down my “work smarter, not harder” tips that keep me focused and productive during the long days growing my business, from how to make a to do list that moves the needle to ways you can improve your space for optimal workflow.

There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who open their bank app on their phone without a single worry or anxiety, and those two squirm and cringe just thinking about it, or maybe even pretend the app isn’t there.

Nearly 1 in 3 women in our country are discouraged about their finances with over 68% feeling overwhelmed by debt. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

I am thrilled to welcome Tiffany Aliche, AKA The Budgetnista, to the podcast. We’re talking about the types of debt, how to get out of it from ANY starting point, when to invest in your business, and simple strategies to contribute to your savings that won’t leave you feeling cash strapped at the end of the month.

SE-Oh no, what does it all mean?

Search Engine Optimization, the beast we all have to tame if we want our content to get seen on the world wide web. And best case scenario our content isn’t only SEEN, but it’s ranked high up on that Google results page and gets those coveted clicks.

I’ve covered SEO on the show before but I’m seeing the question pop up more and more ‘cause it’s just one of those things that continues to challenge us, confuse us, and keep us from even starting.

The Google algorithm judges our pages with over 200 different criteria -- Trying to master them all would be a full time job, and you’ve got bigger things to do. So what will actually move the needle? How can you rank ahead of your competitors? What’s worth the fuss? It’s all in this episode.

You don’t need 10K to start your business as an influencer. What do you need? Today’s episode.

Today’s guest, Ali Grant, knows influencers. She launched her business as one of the first agencies working on influencer outreach and collaboration. I’m asking her your biggest questions: How many followers do I need to start making money? What are the secrets to NAILING a brand pitch? And really, how much do influencers actually make per post? 

Remember when “Influencers” weren’t even a thing? Like when advertising on the internet was mainly in the form of pop up ads and spam emails? I can’t say I miss those days -- I love the Influencer Marketing world we live in today. You probably know that I’m an influencer and I make money from sponsored posts, but the reality is if you have ONE follower you are an influencer.

Getting paid to post? With the right strategy, I know you can do it.

I don’t have time. My dream is too big. Where do I even start?

Our big dreams can take a backseat to everyday life. It’s so easy to push them away, fire off every excuse for not leaning into our biggest goals, and ignore the little pull they have on our hearts. I wholeheartedly believe that these big ideas that both excite and frighten us are the only things worth pursuing at all.

Let me warn you from the beginning that this is not going to be an episode on general goal setting or how to be more productive and stick to your goals. This episode is about figuring out that one thing you should be doing and then reverse engineering your way to achieve the result you want.

The first three steps to take plus how to hop right over whatever roadblocks come your way on the path to making it happen… I’m sharing it all.

What are the proven methods to being more productive while actually doing less? And get this… the productivity hack relating to our menstrual cycle that actually BLEW MY MIND.

A few weeks ago, I was standing on a balcony in Puerto Rico… The sun was setting, I was staring down at the beach, holding a glass of champagne and I had a moment. One of those moments when time freezes and you see this sort of highlight reel of a part of your life. For me, it was this flashback to when I started this whole thing and here I was in this reality that was a total *pinch me* moment.

I came back to earth when a photographer walked up to me and I asked him what lens he was shooting on. Our conversation took off and he asked me ONE question that inspired this whole episode. He said, “If you had $5,000 and had to start all over again, where would you spend it and what would you do?” Wow.

Goal Digger Coaching is back and you get to listen in as a listener gets coached on AIR by me!

Create a course? Teach people online? Who… Me? Be kind and rewind to 4 years ago when I was asking myself those same questions. Now, I’m an online educator bringing in 90% of my profits with my courses on Instagram, Pinterest, Email List Building, and more. Now the only question is: Could YOU create a course? My answer is YES.

I’m going one-on-one with today’s guest, Meg Wheeler. She’s a student in my List to Launch Lab, and she’s toying with the same course questions that you might be facing in your own business. How do you know you’re ready to offer a course? What should your course be about? And how do determine what your audience needs not what you think they need?

All that, plus more, going all the way from the basics through launch in this coaching session. If a course is on your mind, press play and listen in on this coaching session with a Goal Digger like you.

I’m on a total high right now. It’s how I always feel after a call with my business coach. I’ve taken courses and joined masterminds and chosen my mentors carefully. Did you know every coach I’ve ever hired has been led by a male?

Enter: Dean Graziosi. I saw Dean speak about a year ago, and even though he’s been in this game for a few decades, he still lights up when he talks about what he does. I never stop learning or investing in my development and these calls keep me moving forward.

I always record our calls (because I seriously cannot scribble notes fast enough!) so I’m peeling back the curtain big time and letting you listen into a session so you can hear what it’s like to be coached and what I am asking.

It’s kind of like the old-school landline days when you could pick up the phone and listen to your parents talk from the other room… Except it’s an unscripted, raw, and unedited call with the business coach that always leaves me fired up and focused.

I get really open and honest about where I’m at, the feeling of contentedness, my fear of selling, and MORE.

Boundaries. Is there such a thing? As we’re building our businesses, creating our personal brands, and sharing the good, bad, and *real* moments on social media, where is the line between our public and private lives anymore? 

We scrapped the interview questions for an honest conversation with our guest today, Kate Arends. She created the lifestyle brand Wit & Delight and what started as a personal project to get to know herself became a resource for her 3.3 million followers to feel less alone in the ups and downs of their journey through life.

She shares food, design, and travel, and publishes deeply personal essays to explore her journey through divorce, mental illness, and an undiagnosed learning disability.

Through it all, Kate expertly crafted a deeply personal brand with a focus on her passions. I ask her about the whole process, how she creates boundaries while maintaining a brand that is so personal, and what she would do if she started over today.

A $300 Craigslist camera launched my photography career and turned into all of this. Stop me if you’ve heard this one… I’ve told it a million times because it’s a reminder of how I got this whole thing going.

When I speak to entrepreneurs, many aren’t sure they want to be doing what they are currently doing ten years from now. Wedding photography wasn’t something I could see myself doing 10, 20 years down the road. But I made a powerful pivot and what came next was my dream business.

In this episode I get into the HOW of my pivot and hopefully inspire you to start thinking about what’s next for you. You don’t have to back yourself into a corner, I want you to already be thinking forward about the next step so that when your passion fades, you’ve got a powerful pivot ready to propel you forward without sacrificing profits.

But video is important. We’re getting clear signs every day that if we’re not using video for our businesses, we better start. Today’s guest, Sunny Lenarduzzi has nearly a decade of experience in creating thriving brand strategies using social media and video marketing.

243: Don't Do These 3 Things on Instagram
34:17

Oh Instagram, the app we are all trying to maneuver with grace and ease but behind the scenes we’re pulling out our hair, spending way too much time Googling things, and agonizing behind every image and caption -- and don’t even get me started about things like hashtags and IG stories, am I right?

As someone who has educated thousands of people on how to use the app better, I wanted to take a little time to tell ya the 3 trends that NEED to stop -- like yesterday -- because they are hurting you and not helping you on the platform. This isn’t an episode telling you to do MORE. Instead, it’s shedding a light on some frightening trends that are robbing you seeing results on Instagram. Are you ready? Let’s talk about the 3 things you need to stop doing on Instagram.

242: The Secret to Happy Clients with Olivia Herrick
46:30

The customer is always right. Sure, you know that, but as an artist how do you balance your own creativity AND give your clients exactly what they want? And what happens when “following your bliss” isn’t actually paying the bills?

This guest found the perfect balance of her own creativity and a client-centered strategy to really give the people what they want AND grow her business. Olivia Herrick is MY graphic designer, working on all things Jenna Kutcher, and she’s the artist behind the new Goal Digger branding that we launched at the beginning of 2019.

48:58

Hiring a team is a big step for a small business. I always get questions like: How do I know when I need to hire someone? Can I really afford to hire someone? And how do I go about finding the perfect team member who will help me do better and make more?

Today’s guest, Joy Cho of Oh Joy! is an expert in hiring, managing, keeping, and leveraging a team to grow her business. She is holding nothing back and sharing her actionable tips and lessons learned with YOU. You might want to take notes on this one… it’s basically a bootcamp!

239: How Being Decisive Leads to Success
31:22

Decisions, decisions. Are you good at making them or do decisions fill you with fear and doubt?

I haven’t always been super decisive, in fact, in the past I would’ve categorized myself as a wishy-washy people pleaser. Can you relate with that? You want to make everyone happy so you let others make decisions for you, like where to eat for dinner or what movie to watch. Now Drew would probably argue that I’m a little TOO decisive, but I know what I want and now I don’t really waiver or question my decision.

I want to walk you through how I became a better decision maker, the things I ask myself when making big decisions, and how you can implement a few simple steps to become better at making decisions and ditch the doubt that sometimes comes with them. This one skill has saved me hours of deliberation and seasons of questioning, and it’s given me the clarity to say my best YESes!

Let me set the scene for you: When we recorded this episode I was still very much pregnant, Drew was wearing nothing but his underwear and a pair of socks, and one of our pups was sleeping on the dining room table. Keeping it real with you all.

Our last Ask Us Anything episode was one of your favorites, so here we are again, ready to answer your questions about pretty much anything. When I asked for your questions in the Goal Digger Insiders Facebook Group and the Goal Digger Podcast Instagram account, I have to admit, I was pretty surprised at what you wanted to know and how personal you wanted us to get. If you’re wondering how we balance this crazy entrepreneurial journey, keep each other smiling on the toughest days, how we knew each other were the one, or how many kids we want, this episode has the answers and so much more about US.

237: The Personality Test We're Obsessed With (Enneagram)
41:17

I’m a Type 3: The Achiever. If you’ve taken this personality assessment my team cannot live without, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

What is it? The enneagram! The enneagram assesses you as one of 9 types. Each of these types have a unique set of personality traits, strengths, and weaknesses and it is INSANELY accurate. My sister made my entire family take it last January, and the takeaways *actually* stuck with me throughout the year.

I’m sharing how the enneagram has set me up for success in business, exposed weaknesses, how Drew and I have used it to grow in our marriage, how it clarified a lot of dynamics in our family, and ultimately how you can find out your enneagram assessment and use it to transform your life.

46:23

Authenticity is more than posting the unedited, unfiltered photos on our feed. Today’s guest is a self-proclaimed authenticity advocate who believes sharing her truth, even the talking about the tough stuff out loud, can help other women feel like they aren’t alone. Sarah Herron was the first contestant on ABC’s The Bachelor with a physical disability, and although it didn’t end in her winning the final rose, she turned the sometimes tumultuous Bachelor experience into a new positive life purpose.

Sarah was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome, but it hasn’t stopped her from climbing mountains, skiing double black diamonds and even searching for love on television. This chat gets real and raw about her time on the show and how it was a catalyst for starting her nonprofit. This girl is THE example of finding positivity and purpose in challenging times.

Is managing The Goal Digger Podcast really a fulltime job? YUP. And this is the girl who does it...

Kylie toured spent a summer on the road with One Direction blogging and vlogging the concert experience for fans at home. She co-hosted a top rated radio morning show in her home state of Maine and now hosts her own weekend country radio show in NYC. This girl knows content and broadcasting, so I’m super excited to introduce her to you as manager of The Goal Digger Podcast!

One LinkedIn post lead me to Kylie, and with her killer Type A tendencies she keeps The Goal Digger Podcast running through even the biggest roadblocks (remember when we mysteriously disappeared from iTunes… that was Kylie’s first week on the job!)

233: What No One Tells You About "Success"
46:33

I want to be super honest with you. My success changed my world.

Most women say they are equally afraid of success as they are afraid of failing… That says a lot. I want to preface the whole thing to say that I am so, so grateful for every ounce of success that has come my way, but my life has changed so much since I left the corporate world and started my own business back in 2012.

You ask about this a lot and I think it’s worth devoting an episode that’s real and vulnerable about my personal experience of growing a large brand, building a multimillion dollar company, and how it’s changed things for me, specifically how it’s affected my relationships.

I hope you’ll sprinkle some grace over everything I’m about to say, and know that I’m showing up to tackle something that I’ve been personally struggling with in hopes that it will help you to understand what success can REALLY look like behind the scenes.

231: How to Get People on Board With Your Business
44:12

So you want to start a business but your husband isn’t on board.

It can be difficult to be a woman striving for more in her career: It goes against traditional gender roles, people can question your priorities, and it’s easy to feel like a workaholic compared to your peers… Not having that support, or even having resistance from your closest family and friends, presents a whole new hurdle to clear. So how do you do it? How do you navigate your relationships and get your husband, partner, BFF, or family on board with your big idea?

I’m breaking it down as a married woman, but no matter what stage of life you’re in, this episode will help you face the resistance when the people you love don’t really understand or fully get “it.”

230: The Truth About Therapy (And If It's Right For You)
52:33

It’s time to talk about mental health and normalize therapy. Today’s guest, Elyse Snipes, is a marriage and family therapist skilled at bringing practical solutions to everyday problems with a little creative magic and a whole lot of truth. She works with her patients to unlock their limiting beliefs and build a healthier narrative that makes room for healing, connection, and personal freedom… And she does it all from her restored 1953 vintage trailer parked on the beach.

I invited Elyse on the show because as entrepreneurs, we’re welcoming a bonus layer of expectation, stress, anxiety, and decision-making into our lives, and in order to be successful in our businesses, and our personal lives, we need tools to manage these often challenging hurdles. I love Elyse’s mission to normalize therapy, and do it a little different than I’ve ever seen before. If you have questions about therapy, or if you think you might benefit from working with a therapist but you don’t even know where to begin, Elyse will walk you through it in this episode.

37:41

Need a lifeline? Your audience does and YOU can create the perfect offer for them.

We’ve all got something to offer. But is that *something* perfect for your audience? Will anyone even want it? Maybe you have a great idea that you want to get off the ground but have been stuck at the dreaming stage. Or maybe you’ve got so many ideas floating around your head but you’re just not sure which one your audience wants or needs most, and more importantly, will actually buy. It’s important that you’re putting the RIGHT things out there...

If you’re wondering how to create the perfect offer, I’ve got you covered. I’m going to walk you through my EXACT process for determining what to offer next in my business, whether it’s a product in the shop, a freebie, a mastermind, or a new course. What will you create next?

228: Become an Instagram Influencer with These Tips (Puno)
52:45

Fact or fiction: Having tons of followers is the only way to get more partnership possibilities, more business opportunities, and by extension, more money.

That’s totally FICTION. In the social media world of buying followers and the dreaded follow-unfollow game, the quality of your engagement with your audience is way more valuable than getting that ‘K’ next to your follower count. Micro-influencers are crushing the game and building dedicated, engaged followings that brands are leaning into and wanting to target.

Puno is a digital entrepreneur and web designer. She founded @ilovecreatives, a platform for creatives to connect and she co-created PeopleMap.co, an Instagram marketing tool where you can strategically find, grow, and track your community. She’s also a YouTuber and takes the most epic photos with her cat.

If you’ve ever wondered if micro-influencer partnerships are the right choice to market your business, or if YOU are a micro-influencer and you want to attract more partnerships and opportunities, this episode is rich with the details you need.

225: Answered: Is It Better To Be An Introvert or Extrovert
32:58

Loner. Hermit. Recluse. Antisocial.

If you search introvert in a thesaurus you’ll find some of these words. Hermit wasn’t in there, but my mom called me that once, so there’s that. But look mom! Introverts can make friends and build big businesses, too!

Whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, being an entrepreneur can teach you a LOT about yourself, your leadership style, and help you to hone in on your skills… But entrepreneurship also has a tendency to point out the areas where you don’t quite shine.

Is it better to be introverted and extroverted as an entrepreneur? Today I’m going to teach you how to maximize whichever one you are to rock your business! I’ll also break down how I feel like my journey in entrepreneurship has changed me and taken me from being an extremely extroverted girl to someone who is definitely and entirely introverted.

224: This Type of Business Could Be Your Answer
46:15

PLEASE READ: After publishing this episode it was brought to our attention that there is a great deal of controversy and damaging claims surrounding the company featured in this interview, LuLaRoe. LuLaRoe is currently under investigation and facing multiple lawsuits.

Our intent on this show was to shed light on a different type of business model and how to successfully approach marketing in this space. While we support the actionable tips shared by our guest and believe they can be valuable for our audience, we do not support LuLaRoe.

We hope our listener's takeaways are not focused on the company featured but focused on:

  • Knowing your “why” behind anything that you do and letting it shine in all you share.
  • How to stand out among the others selling your same product or within your industry. 
  • Researching different opportunities that can help you spend more time with your family and loved ones.
  • Approaching relationships not with the sale in mind but in truly being able to connect with other human beings on a heart level.
  • Using your business as a means to serve others needs and not a place to constantly sell.
  • Preserving relationships by being sincere with every interaction.
  • The importance of creating a personal experience for your customers versus creating mass appeal.

As always, we recommend researching business opportunities before entering them. We are privileged to serve the Goal Digger audience each week with inspiring stories and know the platform we have built comes with enormous responsibility. We heard your concerns, we're sorry, and we're grateful to have your continued support of the show.

Listen, I get it. Starting an email list seems overwhelming, like the learning curve is just too high to even get started and if you do get it up and running, what the heck do you have to talk about? I was in your shoes once and dragged my feet for a long time thinking my business was doing just fine as is.

The truth is, my email list is the #1 way I drive profits in my business (did I tell you I did $153k in sales by sending out just 3 emails? Yeah, that happened!) I’m spilling what you really need to know about email lists!

We’re two days into 2019. First of all, HOW? Second of all, you should know that when I recorded today’s episode I was still rubbing my baby bump awaiting sweet Baby Kutcher’s arrival into the world. When I prepped for maternity leave and recorded almost three months of the podcast in advance, I still had a little time in 2018 to close out the year strong… And man, did I.

Today I’m recapping what rocked in 2018, and in the interest of full disclosure, what totally sucked.

Mothers need their own clock. A clock with more than 24-hours. Can I get an AMEN?

Today’s guest knows the mom-time-warp all too well, so she created a product to serve that need. Alexa Brown is a 28-year old mommy of two (with one on the way!) and fitness enthusiast… But as a young mom, she knows how hard it can be to squeeze in a workout each day, let alone get motivated to make it happen.

With time, she learned the tried and true system of building your best body in the most effective and efficient way. To spread her innovative workout hacks and plans, she started selling ebooks. And that’s when the real business magic happened.

Alexa’s following and online shop are both wildly successful -- and she let me pick her brain on how to successfully make, sell, and market online products. It’s easy to blend in online, but Alexa has MASTERED the craft, and today she is going to teach you Online Products 101.

215: Debt Free by 30 - How We Did It
36:42

I was hesitant to record this show because our own financial situation looks a lot different than others… But when I shared the fact that we are entirely debt free -- we’re talking no student loans, no mortgage, no car payments, plus we bought two Hawaiian condos -- I got a ton of requests and questions about how we did it, how we planned for it, and my tips to reduce the debt you have!

It didn’t happen by chance. We worked hard to reach our debt-free goal, and I learned so much in the process that I want to share with you. Today’s episode is going to dive into how we achieved being entirely debt free before my 30th birthday. And for the record, we pulled off this feat when I was 29 and a half.

209: Why A Money Mindset Matters
28:14

Money talks. Are you listening?

Money, money, money… talking about it can feel weird, but isn’t it the foundation of our whole life? It’s money that allows us to pay our rent, buy our groceries, see the world, feel secure, pay for healthcare... The list goes on. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the negative side of money and dwell on the those ugly and fearful feelings of greed or scarcity.

There is a different side to money that often gets overlooked (especially when you are a penny-pinching entrepreneur). You can feel empowered to make money, confident in your worth, and THANKFUL for the money in your life. Money doesn’t HAVE to have a negative connotation (and it shouldn’t!)

In today’s show I am going to teach you how to master your mindset, attract new wealth into your life, and transform your money mindset from start to finish.

208: From Tragedy to Triumph (And Everything in Between)
55:45

She is a three-time medalist and the most decorated Paralympic snowboarder in US history. Amy Purdy defied the odds throughout her life to accomplish some extraordinary things. Despite fighting for her life and losing both of her legs below the knees at the age of 19, her passion for living without limits carried her not only to the upper levels of athletics but onto the dance floor of Hollywood and well, well beyond. This girl even toured with OPRAH, and that’s not even the most impressive accomplishment on her long, long list.

I’m so inspired by Amy. When she went through one of the most traumatizing events I can imagine, she came out victorious on the other side -- but I know it couldn’t have been easy. How do we handle hard things, find the positives in a difficult situation, and cope with “losing” the career you planned on? In this episode, Amy shared what she *really* means when she wants you to LIVE INSPIRED. This one’s a tear jerker… in the best way.

207: How to Batch Work (and Save Yourself Hours)
41:10

You’re REALLY busy, right? Want to save yourself hours of time? Read on.

The facts: The average time spent on a task before losing focus is only 1 minute 15 seconds. Multitaskers reduce productivity by FORTY PERCENT across the board. When multitasking, it takes twice as long to accomplish a certain task AND it increases errors by 50%. Here’s the thing… we’re not REALLY multitasking. We are just switching our mind back and forth rapidly from one task to another, not giving either task our full attention.

Today’s episode is all about the method I use in my business to ditch the multitasking lifestyle and work ahead, plan with strategy, work efficiently, and have time off to truly REST. Wonder how I’m going to be able to take THREE MONTHS off for maternity leave? It’s all about BATCH WORKING, friend.

I can truly say how I approach work has transformed my business... but it wasn’t always easy or natural to me. Now that I have batch working down to a science, I’m sharing the entire process with you. Raise your hand if you’re a serial multitasker?

205: Battle the Screen Addiction with These 5 Tips
39:29

The unsettling stats about screen time…

The average smartphone uses their phone 2 hours 51 minutes per day. The average user clicks, swipes, and taps 2,617 times PER DAY. 47% of parents are concerned that their child is addicted to screens while, 89% of parents blame themselves. The amount of screen time per day — regardless of what the content is — goes hand in hand with the higher instances of depression.

Ever since smartphones came on the scene, they have become a constant presence in BOTH our professional and our personal lives. However, this constant sensory overload and overwhelm of information makes our thoughts scattered, impacts our feelings, and ultimately, shapes our LIVES. As a business woman, I want my work to be focused and intentional. From a personal perspective, I want to be present in my life. I want to really LIVE and not just refresh my feed every few minutes. I understand how difficult it can be to break our phone and screen habits, which is exactly why I wanted to make this episode full of TANGIBLE tips, tricks, and methods that will ensure that you can put the phone down, and keep your eyes up.

Goal Diggers, I have been dying to have this guest on the show since the very beginning. She is bold, authentic, beautiful, brilliant, and today she is HERE! Goal Diggers, you probably already know and adore her, but officially MEET Iskra Lawrence!

Iskra is a British model and a champion for #EveryBODYisBeautiful, body diversity and self-care.

Got something to launch? Perhaps a new product, service, website, course, freebie, or business and you want to share it with your audience? You’ve worked so hard on this new thing and it’s so important to put some thought behind how you are going to reveal it to the world.

Far too often there’s not enough time and energy behind the steps for launching and too much focus on the creation process. People can get stuck on this last step. Striving for perfection can cause paralysis and leave us scrambling when it comes time to promote. Here’s the thing -- if it’s not launched well, no one is going to see it anyway.

We recently publicly launched one of my courses The Pinterest Lab and have so many takeaways from that experience. Today I want to share 10 ways you can create hype around something new and exciting in your business so that you can rock your next launch, big or small!

192: Your Story Matters, Here's How to Own It
54:35

Lucia Pador is a super woman. You may know her from her work at Utterly Engaged, or more recently, her transition into helping others tell their stories and tell them well. Lucia is in my mastermind this year, and I have been AMAZED at how she can curate, visually story-tell, and manage Utterly Engaged flawlessly, while also working on her newest project which will help entrepreneurs tell their own story and leave a true legacy.

Lucia is a daughter of immigrant parents who escaped a Communist war-torn country, moving from one refugee camp to another, to finally planting their roots in Southern California and building a beautiful life and business. After 30+ years of providing for their family through his art, Lucia’s father unexpectedly passed away. It was not until after he left this world did she finally see first hand how much of legacy he left behind. Without social media, she was blown away by the impact his art left behind that had spread across continents and oceans. Remembering what she learned from him, and combining her love for storytelling, social media, design and modern marketing, she is on a mission to help others spread their message, art, and creations through the most impactful and meaningful way.

I know a lot of entrepreneurs love what they do, but struggle finding clarity, direction, and the know-how to share their message and stand out. I am lucky to have to have THE expert, Lucia Pador to teach us not only how to market ourselves well but to own our stories (even the messy parts!)

191: How I Made $218,000 on Shopify in ONE Year 
30:10

It’s been a little over a year since I opened my online shop: Shop Jenna Kutcher. It’s been a crazy, beautiful addition to my business and it’s been something I’ve been digging into as we’ve navigated this season of life because having an online digital store has been an incredible addition to my business for a few big reasons.

I love having our shop because:

1. I have created resources that have helped me that are now available for everyone to enjoy and use. Why hide all the templates and tools I had built for my business that had attributed to my success? It’s been awesome to say: are you struggling with xyz? I have a resource for this exact thing.

2. It gives me the chance to reach my people with offers that are more accessible for those not ready to take a course or not in a financial place to purchase a full course or system. I love being able to sell well priced products that can help change businesses and give people the tools that they might not be able to purchase elsewhere.

3. It is 90% automated and digital which means we can serve our clients quickly, it’s open and available all the time, and most of it is run through automation which means less work on our part to get people what they need and to deliver a good client experience without having to be attached to every single sale. Have you thought about starting a Shopify shop? Today I am going to walk you through how I've made over $218,000 in just ONE year.

Her platform the12ishstyle.com to inspire girls like her who are stuck in size purgatory - not quite "plus size", not quite "straight-sized". Not only that, she is also the founder and CEO of Megababe Beauty, a women's comfort line that launched in June of 2017. AND if that wasn’t enough, she is the momma and social media guru behind the two insta-famous pups, Cheese and Muppet. Safe to say, she does it all-- and she does it so well!

I wanted Katie to come on for those of us that are running one business, but have an idea for a second… and a third… and you get the idea! I know how many of us are multi-passionate boss babes, and I wanted to hear first-hand from someone that is managing multiple businesses so flawlessly! today Katie is going to teach us how to divide our time among projects, delegate resources, and balance our many passions! Speaking as a fellow multi-passionate girlboss, I think this episode is crazy valuable, and I learned SO much about making the most of all my passion projects!

It’s crazy to think that in a few short months, we’ll be welcoming a baby into our home and lives and everything will change.

188: Real Talk: How to Stand Up For What You Believe In
01:00:37

I want to talk about it. The messy stuff, the embarrassing, the humiliating, the shameful… I want to talk about it. But it’s not always easy. You see, there are some BIG topics out there: body shaming, discrimination, inequality, war, oppression, shame, guilt…. But they aren’t always easy to address.

Insert: today’s guest. Alex LaRosa is a plus size model, blogger, and self love advocate based in Los Angeles… This Cali native is ready to share her message of self acceptance and personal growth. She has two major goals: to help other women become the most powerful version of themselves and to see these women represented in fashion. The launch of Visibly Plus Size is a result of Alex's unwavering belief that all different types of women (no matter their size, age, or the color of their skin) benefit from seeing images that represent them in the media.

Aside from her brilliant business and insane modelling skills, what also captured my eye is the way that Alex speaks about topics that matter. She recently caught my eye in an instagram comment section where there was a heated debate, and her responses were 1) respectful, but also informative and persuasive. I was so captivated by how this woman spoke up for what she believed that I knew I had to have her on the show. Goal Diggers, without any further adieu, welcome Alex Larosa!

187: My Worst Client Experiences and What They Taught Me
48:49

Part of being an entrepreneur means putting on your customer service hat and serving people well - but what happens when things go bad? What implications does it have on not just your business but your life? And how do you pull yourself out of those situations and use them to sincerely grow? I’ll be honest, in my seven years of entrepreneurship, I can count these awful experiences on one hand - maybe two if I took some time to really remember the things that I’ve likely blocked from my memory but when I look back, those were some of the best growing moments in my business, even though those times were rough - like really rough. So today, I want to break down some of the worst experiences that have happened to me in as an entrepreneur and then shed a light on what I ultimately ended up learning the really hard way.

Not to mention, she coordinates my mastermind, is a Make A Wish granter, and is just generally the most positive, calming person you could ever be around!

Today, I wanted my mom to come in to discuss #allthethings like only a mother could do. Hearing what it was like being a working momma, how she found her path, what advice she has for me as I become a mom, what she *really* thinks of my career, and just ALL the mom goodness!

Have you ever taken part in an online challenge? Whether it’s a work out challenge, an Instagram challenge, a clean eating, yoga, money or a clean house challenge - there is SOMETHING about challenges that I want to teach about today - because maybe your next big project could be hosting your very own challenge.

Three years ago, I hosted my first challenge ever. I remember thinking that a challenge could be a good way to teach free content and get people on board with my strategies while also building a community that would allow me to intimately connect with the people I was trying to reach. My first challenge was a 7 day Instagram challenge where I sent challengers a prompt each day today I want to dissect what worked, what didn’t work, what to do if you want to host a challenge, and the biggest benefits that challenges can bring to your business!

181: Beat The Algorithm: How To Rock Your Instagram Stories
39:25

Goal Diggers, we all know social media is one of THE best ways to get word out there about your business… but sometimes it can get tricky. Today, I wanted to focus on one specific facet of social media that rarely gets taught but can make a GIANT impact on how you’re engaging with your audience: How to ROCK your instagram stories! If you are not utilizing IG stories yet, it’s FINALLY time to get on board. And if you are… it’s time to make sure you are using it to its full potential because it is one of the most unique, impactful ways to move your business forward, engage with your fans in an authentic way, and expand your connection with your followers.

Live video is a newer feature in the social media world and with additions like IGTV happening, it’s clear Instagram is sending us a message that if we aren’t using video yet, we better figure out our strategy with it. Essentially, we have a few different options to record ourselves, publish it, and chat with your followers/potential clients. It can be intimidating absolutely, but it is so incredible because it allows you to connect with your audience in real time (and beyond!) and adds an irreplaceable level of humanness and uniqueness to your brand. You essentially get to draw in your potential clients and spread your message in authentic way for free!

Let’s dig in and get specific on the strategy around IG stories and many ways to utilize this feature— from swipe ups, photos, graphics, text overlay, live video, featured stories and MORE! You can use it from your personal or you business page, but regardless, there are certain tips to making sure your message gets across and properly received!

179: A Step by Step Guide To Start Your Own Podcast
40:11

PODCASTING FOR DUMMIES. If you're considering starting a podcast, wondering what goes into podcasting, or just curious about our behind-the-scenes of this show, this episode is for you! I want to be open about the nitty gritty process of starting a podcast from A to Z and let you in on how you can start one of your own!

I’ll admit, starting a podcast is one of the vaguest things in the world. I spent so many days on google trying to find details on things like “How do I get onto iTunes” or “who makes my intro?” It’s still a relatively new “thing”, so you feel a little lost when starting. How do I pick my topic? Demographic? Show name? How the heck do I get a theme song? How do I record it?

Safe to say there are a million and one questions and today we will be covering how we started this “little” show that’s grown into one of the biggest pieces of my business. It’s crazy to think that this started less than two years ago and we have already cracked the top 5 out of ALL business shows and top 50 of ALL podcasts. For reference there are over a billion subscriptions spread across 250,000 unique podcasts in more than 100 languages, and that more than 8 million episodes have been published in the iTunes Store to date. Like, that’s insane. But in order to thrive, you have to start with a foundation, and today I am going to teach you how to do JUST that!

178: The #1 Way to Be More Inclusive
46:43

Wow, wow, wow. This guest. Her mission… Brit Barron is the co-founder of Other Dreamers Culture Consultants and a speaker, writer and diversity and inclusion trainer. Brit spends a lot of time thinking about and talking about how race, gender and sexuality and spirituality interact with our everyday lives and our work. Brit is obsessed with finding new ways to connect people and things that have been told they should not go together. She has a bachelors and masters degrees in psychology and is probably already analyzing me as I type this!

Brit has spoken all over the country, she has a TED talk about Beyonce and race in America and she is ready to share her expertise with you! I was introduced to you by the women dynamo Emily Sexton (remember her LIFE CHANGING episode?!). Emily consulted Brit to ensure that her business was casting a wide net and ensuring that every woman felt heard, seen, and valued. And wow, is Brit the perfect person for the job! In this episode you will learn how to easily cultivate a network of connection and support, pioneer change and inclusion in your workplace (...and your life!), find genuine community, tackle the “hard” topics, and how to truly live a life that exemplifies “community over competition.” You in?

"At the end of the day, we are BETTER TOGETHER than separate. Governments with more women involved have higher rates of peace. Companies with higher amounts of people with color in leadership, do better economically because they reach more markets... so yes, we are better together. But first, we have to deal with why those people weren't at the table to begin with." Simply put, Brit knows her stuff. She is an expert on inclusion: from her unique personal perspective to statistics all the way to tangible action steps, Brit is reminding us every day that "people matter." Always, and in all ways.

This. Woman. Boundary-breaking, unifying, inspiring... every possible positive adjective I could write. She is something so rare and the way that she talks about things that matter is so inspiring to me. Goal Diggers, the magic in this episode could change your life- and I know I always say this, but you cannot miss it. Like really, click "play" now. Okay? Okay :)

177: The Entrepreneur's Guide To SEO: How-to, Hacks, and Tricks to Get Traffic
33:27

SEO. Search Engine Optimization. It makes many of us want to put our head in the sand and pretend it doesn’t exist, am I right? I’m guilty of having done that for years until I realized it’s not as scary as we’ve made it out to be and there are some major benefits that can come from some simple implementation on your end. So today I want to break it down and demystify this topic for all of you - because it’s time to put some strategy behind our search engine results.

Search Engine Optimization basically means the process of maximizing the number of visitors to a particular website by ensuring that the site appears high on the list of results returned by a search engine. SEO can be a really complex topic to cover (especially on a podcast!) so my goal today is breaking it down to the basics, tell you where best to invest your time, and prove to you that it’s not so scary so you take action and get started. In my experience, even starting out small with a simple strategy can make a big impact on the traffic that is coming to your website…. Because what good is a website if no one knows it exists?

Let me give it to ya straight: this blog post is only the outline of this show. To get the full impact of this show, I recommend reading along with this blog and writing down all the specific details to maximize your SEO journey.

If you hit play on this episode, my guess is you already know you need to be doing this - so let’s not ignore it anymore - ok?

On top of that, she is a fierce mental health advocate and I am so excited to hear her inspiring messages surrounding both business and life. In this episode, you will learn how Jen got her amazing start to ban.do, but also why her current mission is spreading awareness about mental health. Find out how why Jen thinks entrepreneurs are specifically challenged by mental health concerns, tangible way that we can be there for one another, how to actually TALK about such an “uncomfortable topic”, create change, and create community.

Goal Diggers, I am legitimately GIDDY to share this episode with you. Today, i am introducing you to one of the most magnetic women I know. Emily Sexton is a force to be reckoned with and I’ve been able to experience her magic first-hand in my mastermind group this year.

With a past career on Wall Street as a Vice President of Communications and Change Management, Emily brings her ‘win them over’ know-how, delightful enthusiasm and every day wit to encourage American consumers to use their purchasing power for good. From Wall Street to the streets with no name, you can now find Emily traveling in developing nations to find gorgeous new goods for her Downtown Raleigh Boutique + online shop, The Flourish Market. She is an overly obsessed dog mom, an unlikely Crossfitter, a contributor to The Huffington Post, and an avid believer that every woman is worthy of influence.

Today, Emily is going to teach us her signature topic: How to Influence Others. Goal Diggers, I cannot emphasize how important this episode is. Whether you are an entrepreneur, college student, or single mom, there is value in knowing how to communicate well, own your story, and connect with others in a powerful way. Goal diggers, I CANNOT wait for you to harness your inner voice and learn from this one in a million woman....

165: How to Pay Yourself as an Entrepreneur
30:16

YUP, THE TOPIC NO ONE EVER TALKS ABOUT… I’M GOIN’ THERE: How To Pay Yourself as an Entrepreneur

So you own your own business which means you’re the boss, and as the boss - you get to determine how much money you make. Awesome, right? Considering how often I get asked this question, it seems to be more stressful than awesome for most business owners.

If you ask the average entrepreneur what they make, they’ll likely tell you their profits for the year. “I made six figures last year” often means the BUSINESS made six figures. But what did you, the business owner pay yourself? And how do you come up with that number? And what should your business goals be to align with your personal salary goals?

Safe to say there are a lot of things to consider and I wanted to break down how we’ve figured this out (while working through the seasons of crazy and the seasons of slow). When I first started, I realized quickly that I would have seasons where I would make a lot of money and then seasons where it would be nothing and I knew that in order to be smart with my money, I wanted to figure out a way to make sure I felt comfortable in all seasons....

Want to find out how I did it?? Click the link in bio and get ready to learn how to ensure there are always $$$ in that bank account! (These tips and tricks will surprise you!)

164: Crafting a Booming Business Around A Niche Need
46:07

ATTENTION: THERE ARE RICHES IN THE NICHES: Danielle Walker is the beloved author of three New York Times best-selling cookbooks-- After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and suffering for many years, Danielle found health through dietary changes and shared her stories and recipes with the world...

With her openness and focused brand, she became a beacon of hope in the autoimmune world, and has been a leader in the Paleo and gluten-free movement for nearly ten years.

While I am a fellow gluten-free foodies, what also captivated me about Danielle is how she serves a niche audience so well. Not everyone suffers from autoimmune disease or intense dietary restrictions, but those who do, need someone to trust! Danielle has flawlessly created a thriving business that serves a smaller, niche audience.

Today, I am going to get the low-down on how we can all develop our own “signature” expertize, serve our clients well, and turn YOUR niche into a full-blown biz! If you think you must #DoItAll for your business to survive… this episode will change your mind.

163: 5 Easy Ways to Promote a Freebie and Grow Your List
25:49

Ready to save HOURS every week?! We need to flip the script and instead of creating new content 90% of the time and marketing them 10%, we should be creating less and marketing them more. Last year we created over 50 new opt ins! Growing our email email list was our number one priority and so we created a ton of new material that quite honestly, didn’t all need to be made. I recently talked about how to create less content with more impact and today I want to take it a step further and show from start to finish how we continuously share one opt-in. This year we’re prioritizing working smarter (not harder) and have come up with a plan on how to share what’s already been created and get the most mileage out of our existing content. Whether you’re like us and are content creating machines, or if you have limited content and sometimes don’t know what else to share, today’s episode is going to walk you through 5 ways to promote your opt-in.

The sky is the limit with creatively sharing your content! Here are just a few ideas I can think of off the top of my head: create an FB ad pointing to your freebie, promote it on a podcast, collaborate with another freebie, target a different audience, etc. The point? I hope this episode inspired you to make the most of your content and work more on SHARING it to get the most bang for your buck! Goal Diggers, take this as your sign that it's officially time to work smarter, not harder.

162: How this Small Etsy Shop Owner Rose to the Top
41:50

Before I give you the details on this Wonderwoman, I have to tell her how I met her.

Four years later and her business, The Painted Press, has gained national media attention, supports her and her family, and sits in the top 1% of all Etsy shops! It is her mission to provide an affordable, unique gift giving option and to support her team made up entirely of college and high school students.

161: This One is Dedicated to the Haters - Handling Criticism 101
27:16

If you’re pleasing everyone you’re probably pleasing no one - including yourself.

Here’s the thing, you are not going to be able to please everyone. These people that take the time to write you a mean message? They aren’t your people. Focus on the ones that are and the fact that everyone is not going to love you or your message is ok. It’s more than ok.

The more I do this, the more eyes I have on me, my life, my body, my business. Putting yourself out there open YOU up for criticism but I have to remind myself that when you’re doing the big, hard word, people will notice and sometimes it won’t be the RIGHT people but when you can sincerely learn to focus on the good, to keep your heart open, and to protect your energy to be poured into the right things, you’ll become more convicted in your message and you’ll be more prepared to fight for what you really believe in.

“You’re fat.”

“Unhealthy”

“Enough with the underwear pics… you’re a smart girl, you have more things to say, unfollowing.”

“Do you know that your eyebrows are way darker than your hair? You should change that.”

“How did YOU land such a good looking guy?”

“10 emails in 3 days? Go F** yourself. Way to f’in annoy potential clients. F’in idiot.”

“You’re way too aggressive, I’m out.”

You might think it’s all rainbows and butterflies over here in Jenna Kutcher land, and it’s true - we have the most supportive, loving and just all around amazing tribe. But. I’ve found where there is a success, ugly things can creep in and try to attack too. I love to say “More followers, more problems” and a lot of times, we’re fighting battles behind our screens that people never see. I want to dedicate this episode to the haters today and share how I handle criticism.

To prove I’m not invincible, I thought I’d read you some emails that have landed in my inbox. These were hard to find because my team does a good job protecting me from them, but here are a few we could dig up: (I’m thankful that we had to actually dig to find these because it’s a testament to the great people we have supporting us!!)

This episode is dedicated to getting you through the harsh feedback, trolling, and haters. This is for business women, for you, for me. Let's do this.

160: The BIG Secret To Making a Profit AND A Difference
46:28

SURPRISE! Did you know that you can make a profit AND an impact with your business?

The two are not mutually exclusive and today we are talking to the beautiful and brilliant Jess Ekstrom, the founder and CEO of Headbands of Hope, a company she started as a junior in college in 2012. For every headband sold, a headband is given to a child with cancer. The company has been featured on the TODAY Show, Vanity Fair, Seventeen, Good Morning America and People Magazine.

These headbands have been worn and supported by celebrities such as Lauren Conrad, Lea Michele, and so many more! But most importantly, they've donated over 200,000 headbands to every children's hospital in the United States and 15 countries. Jess was named the Women's Health Magazine Ultimate Game Changer in 2017 and also received 'Entrepreneur of the Year' award from Atlantic BT. AND A Huffington Post article named her a "limit breaking female founder".

In this episode, you'll find out that you shouldn't have to choose between making a living and making a difference. She's passionate about helping others find those collision points and live a more purposeful life. Goal Diggers, without further adieu, Jess Ekstrom!

158: Calling All Introverts: How You Can Build a Personable Brand
44:22

CALLING ALL INTROVERTS. I get it, social media can seem like it is reserved for the extroverted, the larger than life, the charismatic. But, friends, you belong- ad you can THRIVE, even if you are more quiet and composed than the others.

There are few people who serve their audience as well as this woman, and I can’t wait for her to teach you about what it TRULY means to wholeheartedly serve your followers (even when you are more shy than not).

Morgan Harper Nichols is an artist and designer, who specializes in making work for people and their stories. Her song, “Storyteller” has garnered over 1 million Spotify plays and her self-published book of poetry by the same title is a #1 Amazon Bestseller in Inspirational Poetry. Morgan lives in Los Angeles, and has made her life’s work about creating for the stories of others, through music, words, art, and design.

She started writing for certain people that came to her mind, however, she would rarely share any of it. When a blog post that she wrote for a group of young women she knew was pinned on Pinterest more than 200k times, she began to explore the many ways that a message could spread beyond what she thought could possible, and she has been creating for others full time ever since. Morgan now works as a writer, designer, and travels as a speaker and performer.

Safe to say, this woman does it all, and with such grace and heart-- I can’t wait for her to teach you about fully utilizing social media to expand your brand, stay in your comfort zone, and turn your followers into FANS.

You have so much to learn from this woman, and I can’t wait for you to hear what she has to say. Goal Diggers, welcome Morgan Harper Nichols!

157: What's a Visual Brand and Why Do You Need One?
33:25

Let Me Give It To Ya Straight:

  • Did you know 30% of our brains are taken up by neurons devoted to visual processing as compared to 8% devoted to touch and only 3% devoted to hearing.
  • People have the ability to process visual information 60,000x faster than text information!

  • 63% of social media is made up of images AND photos on Facebook get 53% more likes than the average post.

  • You have 8 seconds to make an impression and get someone’s attention before they click to something else. That’s shorter than the attention span of a goldfish.

Alright, did I get your attention? Long story short: visuals matter. And today I’m going to walk you through ways that you can share stories through the images, fonts, colors, and styles you are sharing online. I get it, we all know that stories matter but maybe we’re struggling with how to share stories through the images we’re trying to make all "Instagram worthy."

This episode is to show you that visuals of your brand go FAR beyond being aesthetically pleasing or "pretty"- they can truly make you brand and personality memorable, professional, ... and most importantly, move your bottom line.

154: How To Ditch Self-Doubt And Live Your Best Life With Melissa Ambrosini
51:29

It’s the most important relationship of all, yet it’s the one that most of us don’t even think about, let alone spend time and effort on improving it...Know what it is? Yep, you guessed it—our relationship with ourselves. Strengthening your sense of love and respect for yourself is the key to experiencing true fulfillment and living your best life.

Some people think that learning to love yourself is as simple as taking some bubble baths and getting an occasional mani-pedi. But as Our guest, Melissa Ambrosini, will show you today, it goes SO much deeper than that—

Melissa Ambrosini is the bestselling author of Mastering Your Mean Girl and Open Wide, host of the number one podcast The Melissa Ambrosini Show, a speaker and self-love teacher. Melissa teaches women how to unlock their full potential, master their inner Mean Girl, smash through limiting beliefs, and ditch the self-doubt so that they can start living the life of their dreams. Named a 'self-help guru' by Elle Magazine her mission is to inspire women to create a heart-centred life one that’s wildly wealthy, fabulously healthy and bursting with love.

I firmly believe that you need to trust yourself wholeheartedly while chasing your dreams. If you can’t “bet on yourself”, how can you expect others to? However, it is NOT always easy to feel confident, capable, whole…. But Goal Diggers, YOU. ARE. ENOUGH. And today, we’re going to teach you how to harness confidence and live your best life!

153: The Best Hire You Can Make This Year
33:58

If I had a dollar for every time I got the question “Where do I find a Caitlyn or Kate or Danielle”, I’d be permanently retired on a beach in Hawaii. Having just taken 6 weeks off while these ladies ran my business for me, I can wholeheartedly say that investing in my team was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and is at the top of my list in terms of priorities again for this year.

After reading all the questions you guys asked in last week's episode "Ask Jenna Anything About Hiring A Team" I thought I would make a tangible, step-by-step guide in what to look for, how to hire, and the logistics of growing a team.

So, today I want to share to those of you thinking about adding to your team this year, how to identify what role would fit your business best, pick the best person and then what you can do to prepare to hand things over for a smooth transition. And before you think this might not be for you and leave me in this episode, let me challenge you to say that even starting small will make a huge impact and I believe anyone in business can benefit from what I’m going to share today.

152: Motherhood + Entrepreneurship: The Balancing Act
41:07

Hey Goal Diggers, today we are diving into a topic that I have never talked about on Goal Digger before…. Balancing both your motherhood and entrepreneurial roles. It’s no secret that these two roles can get chaotic, but there IS a way to do both, and I couldn’t think of anyone better to talk with than Johnna Holmgren of Fox Meets Bear!

 Johnna seems to have the magic secret to balancing ALL THE THINGS.

She is a mother, creative, and author of the cookbook titled, 'Tales from a Forager’s Kitchen’. 
She lives in the woods of Minnesota with her husband and her three girls where they spend as much time as they can outdoors hiking and foraging, cooking and baking, homeschooling and peaceful parenting. (And cleaning up way too many messes from their two dogs, two cats, and a small flock of ducks and chicks!)

It’s safe to say this woman capitalized and evolved both of these roles and intertwined both her motherly side and business side into a really beautiful partnership., and I am so excited to talk to her about how to transition with your career when you have children.

What an episode, what a topic, what a woman. Johnna reminds us that is okay to be fully human-- striving in our careers and also pausing (and melting!) around our children. If I've learned anything in this episode it's that each of our journeys look different, but we just have to tune in to our instincts and do our best, every day.

151: Ask Jenna Anything About Hiring A Team
41:43

Hey Goal Diggers! Another “Ask Jenna Anything” Episode! I fielded your questions from both the Goal Digger Insiders FB group and the Goal Digger Instagram (if you’re not hanging out there, you’re totally missing out!)

I was absolutely floored by the amount of responses I got from you guys, and I decided to group them by category! I am still letting you call the shots and am fully covering ALL the nitty gritty details.

Many of you know my story-- a burnt out photographer, blogger, businesswoman juggling (and struggling) with all the balls in the air. BUT finally, I reached a breaking point, took a leap, and outsourced one job… then two.. Then hired a full-time member… and another… It’s been a whirlwind, but the BEST decision I’ve ever made, and today we are covering all the behind the scenes magic of how you can hire your own dream team! Let’s get started!

TUNE IN TO HEAR THE JUICY ANSWERS TO ALL OF THESE QUESTIONS!

(Is your name mentioned on air?!)

Okay, first things first… so many of you asked! So here is a quick RUN DOWN OF TEAM JK What does your current team like? What are their roles? Are they full-time part time? Is YOUR team in person or all online? Caitlyn, Kate, Danielle, Kerry, Steph, Ashlyn, Rebecca, Alex (?)

Morgan K: Jenna! I need help with the struggle of taking my personal brand to hiring. I own a fitness studio, named as me and had so much growth this year. I wonder how to prepare clients I engage with face to face each day that someone else will soon be in front of them too!

Marie W: What I’m currently needing help with is HOW do you go about hiring your first employee? Where do you look? What do you look for? I really need someone to help manage my day to day tasks but I’m terrified of hiring someone who isn’t a good fit

Meagan J: How do you divide responsibilities during a project? And about communication, I know you communicate via slack, but being that your team members are mostly contractors and set their own schedules, are your communications ever lost in translation when someone isn't logged in?

Another from Megan J (above): How do you set expectations when taking on a new team member?

Megan J (again! Love it!): Do you find it difficult to work remotely with your team at times?

Alyssa C: How do you budget for hourly workers? Are they paid a "set" number of hours per week? I loved your episode on hiring your team, but want to hear more about the hourly worker piece, especially with everyone working remotely.

Rebecca T: What is the best way to hire/create a great brand ambassador?

Molly G: How do you, Jenna Kutcher yourself, make time to reach out and offer guidance to everyone, given the huge volume of photographers and fans you have? How do you keep it personal and meaningful? What keeps you from delegating most of this to your support team?

Melissa (Instagram) Have y'all set up a Trello board or anything like that to communicate deadline, ideas, etc?

Blue salad (on Instagram) : How do you handle management of your company with employees and keeping your brand consistent?

Aida G: Hey Jenna, I would love to know how you handle all the projects that you have going on without being overwhelmed (I know you have people working for you - but, you also need to keep track of what they are doing - right?). I just want to learn how I can juggle different projects in the most efficient way. Thanks for all your amazing content:

Corinna-marie (Instagram) Hi Jenna!! My question is is in regards to your amazing team. How did you find them and what is your advice for someone who wants to be on a team like yours! Where can you find those opportunities and how can you best position yourself as a candidate to become a boss babe's employee?

--------

And, as always, if you have questions for me, I am CONSTANTLY checking our Goal Digger Podcast Insiders FB group and Goal Digger Instagram account to make sure I am answering YOUR questions. I want to see your name in those groups!

150: Chatting With a Lawyer: How To Legally Protect Yourself
50:25

Goal Diggers, this episode has the potential to completely change your business… Seriously. Our guest today,Christina Scalera, is the legal attorney and founder behind The Contract Shop, a contract template store for creative entrepreneurs, wedding professionals, and coaches... Christina is a creative as well and soon realized that she could blend her two interests (creativity and law) into a business that brought the benefit of her legal training to help her fellow creatives.

It became clear that my fellow creatives needed legal help-- there wasn’t anything or anyone out there to help them. On the one hand, other legal sites provided contract templates that were too generic and disconnected from the pulse of the creative industry. On the other, hiring an attorney is a difficult process-- you don’t know who is good and who isn’t, and even if you found the cheapest attorney out there, hiring someone to draft your business contracts is an expensive endeavour.

And today we are lucky enough to hear everything you need to know about using contracts in your business …. In this episode, Christina will flip the script on what you think you know about contracts and show you how they're a relationship-building and money-making tool.

149: How to Create Less Content with More Impact
24:48

CONTENT CREATION, CONTENT CREATION, CONTENT CREATION! Those 2 words can send chills up a creative entrepreneurs spine. Form blog posts, social media captions, email opt-ins, facebook posts, you name it-- you've got to create it!

BUT If you’ve been around here for awhile, you’ve probably heard me say this - but it’s worth repeating: there is literally no one stalking your business, refreshing your newsfeed or seeing everything you put out into the world the first time. Ok, maybe your mom reads every word - but that’s probably it. Between social media algorithms, busy lives and just an overload of information - I can guarantee most of your audience is missing your great information. Did you know that only 6% of your audience is even seeing what you’re sharing!

Further, we’re hopefully growing our followings and so new audiences are joining your tribe every day - have they seen the great content that you put out and worked hard on? NO.

Let’s not reinvent the wheel and instead, get more mileage out of what already exists rather than feeling the pressure to create something new all of the time. When it comes to content creation, overwhelm probably isn’t too far behind! So today I’m going to walk you through the lifecycle of my content in the hopes that it inspires you (and saves you a boat load of time in the creation process.)

One of the things that makes me laugh (and frankly makes me a little angry) is when I tell people what I do and they immediately follow up their question with a “What does your husband do?” It’s easy to feel like people treat my job like it’s a hobby and that’s partially my fault because I struggle at sharing the scale of my business but when it comes down to relationship roles, I want to share a few of things we’ve learned as my business has grown from non-existent to a 7-figure empire in the span of our marriage.

It can be difficult to be a woman that is striving for more in her career:

  • Goes against traditional gender roles
  • People question your priorities
  • It’s easy to feel like a workaholic compared to peers

Marriage as a #girlboss can look a little different than the storybook we’ve been told, but that doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with it! I love the quote, “Be the CEO your parents hoped you would marry!” Ummm, can we get an amen?

In fact, there is so much that can be RIGHT about it… fulfilling relationships, successful careers, comfortable incomes, driven mindsets. But it DOES require a little work, and today I am going to tell you how to make the most of your marriage as a strong, independent, MARRIED woman!
