The book is out into the world. My first book, How Are You, Really? is out in the world right now. I can’t believe I’m saying those words.

In this episode of the podcast, my teammate Brooklyn Wagner is joining me to reveal the little-known, lesser-discussed pieces of my book writing journey. She’s leading me through questions about adapting to a long term project versus immediate gratification work, what I learned during book launch season, and a whole heck of a lot more.

577: What People Are REALLY Saying About My Book
45:55

Readers are the recipients of the love letter that is a book, and today, I finally get to hear some replies to that letter! And so do you! I’m stepping away from the mic today so that REAL Readers of my first book, How Are You, Really? can tell you why they picked up this book, share their own unique perspectives and reactions to its stories, and what lessons they want to integrate into their lives. 

These reviews come from parents, entrepreneurs, leaders, students, and individuals from the United States and beyond, all with different backgrounds and perspectives as they turned to page one of How Are You, Really? I hope their feedback on the book helps you gain a greater understanding of who the book is for and what you can expect from these so lovingly honed pages.

575: You’ve Never Heard These Leaders Talk About THIS Before

I got this wild idea to reach out to friends of mine that are leading entrepreneurs, creators, and educators, and facilitate conversations with each of them where they TEACH US something. I’m talkin’ Amy Porterfield, Glo Atanmo, Brendon Burchard, Russell Brunson, Suneera Madhani, Lori Harder – the list goes on, and it is glorious. 

I’ve pulled ALL of these trainings together into a remarkably unique, exclusive new course called The Expert Series: In-Depth Life Lessons with your favorite leaders!

574: Hustle Harder or Manifest More? Here’s My Take
36:16

What do you think of when you hear the word “manifestation”? Are you all in and getting your vision board supplies ready to go, or are you cringing at the woo-woo ridiculousness of this theory? I tend to fall somewhere in the middle. Yes, envision this beautiful, full, robust, vibrant life, and also make sure you have a plan to take action, that you’re implementing on what you’re dreaming and thinking and manifesting.

With this episode, I want to show you how I use visualization AND goal-setting in order to reach the life I picture for myself. Plus, I’m simplifying all of this dream-life go-getting with a 3-step process to manifesting and taking action toward your juiciest, loveliest goals.

44:41

Sadie Robertson is a podcaster, a speaker, and multiple bestselling author leading with her message to Live Original. In her latest book, Who Are You Following? Sadie takes on a topic that I’ve been mulling over in my own life. You know that I’m a big fan and I’ve even built a business on harnessing the power of social media and teaching others how to do it, too, but more than ever it seems more people are thinking about the influences that influencers have on our lives. Those little squares you’re scrolling past on the app each day – How are they really playing a role in your life?

I’m so excited to have the opportunity to talk to Sadie about the influence of social media, why we’re driven to post and what we’re gaining (or losing) when we do, and how it all plays into the views we hold about ourselves. This one is gonna be good.

572: Why I Didn't Write a Business Book
32:01

When I started writing my book, How Are You, Really? it wasn't the traditional way. I didn't follow the rules. I started my book with a Google Doc titled “I'm going to write a book”. Before an agent, before a proposal, before a book deal… I just started writing.

In this episode of the Goal Digger Podcast, I wanted to give you an off the cuff discussion of why I didn’t write a book about business despite having been an entrepreneur for the last 10 years (and counting). I haven’t done an episode like this in a while – just me, a microphone, and a few notes sharing a behind the scenes look at easily one of my biggest projects to date.

571: Don’t Quit: Harness the Power of “One More” with Ed Mylett

Sometimes we have these preconceived notions about people who have a big online presence and what they might be like in real life. From our first meeting, Ed Mylett has stood out as one of the kindest, most open-hearted people in my world and it’s such a treat to now have the opportunity to welcome him onto the Goal Digger Podcast for a conversation about his new book, The Power of One More

In the book, Ed shares personal stories and reflections on how his father battled a substance abuse disorder and got sober when Ed was just 15-years old. This conversation with Ed is a generous peek into his stories and lessons shared inside the book, and I’m so excited for you to hear it.

570: 14 Ways to Get More Done in Less Time
30:48

I’ve really been leaning into anti-hustle culture. For so long, it was “cool” to work yourself around the clock and never take breaks, and somehow our culture ran with that notion and busy-ness became a source of pride and a badge of honor for so many people. 

In this episode, we’re going to talk about 14 ways to maximize your time, specifically when you ARE working, so that you’re able to fully unplug, relax and spend quality time with yourself or your loved ones whenever you’re not on the clock.

569: Talking The Office, Podcasting, and Writing Books with Jenna Fischer
45:19

She is a mom, a podcaster, and an author, but perhaps you know her best from her role of Pam Beesly on The Office. Jenna Fischer entered our homes as the receptionist at the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company and became half of one of the most-loved TV couples of our generation. 

She and her best friend, Angela Kinsey, who played Angela Martin on The Office, launched The Office Ladies podcast together in fall of 2021. And now, their behind the scenes stories are coming to book form, too, with their first book together The Office BFFs. I’m asking Jenna about what it was like to be part of a show with such massive success, what she loved about being Pam Beesly, how she navigated the new medium of podcasting, and how she balances her personal and professional relationship working with her BFF.

Who here avoids conflict at all costs? I know, just the thought of facing conflict head on is enough to make a lot of people squirm in their seats, and yet conflict is an unavoidable part of human life. Like anything else, developing an approach and practicing that approach can help you feel confident when it comes time to step into the ring and tackle conflict in any area of life, from personal to professional and even conflict within yourself. 

I’ll walk through what it means to protect your peace, why it’s important to determine how you process issues, the meaning of intentional listening, the power of harnessing humility and more. Ready for some conflict and resolution?

Lisa Bilyeu and her husband Tom founded Quest Nutrition, ultimately selling it for a cool billion dollars. Lisa's story is one of what she thought her life would look like, versus what it does look like, versus what it is going to look like is constantly unfolding. 

Lisa wrote her first book, Radical Confidence, so I can’t wait to discuss all things about becoming an author, what it means to have radical confidence, and a story from the pages of her book that really shook me to my core.

If the thought of dropping thousands just to START gives you hives, I don’t blame you. Stress city, if you ask me. Instead, I’ve pulled together 8 resources that will cover your marketing, invoicing, branding, graphics, systems, and legalities to get your business idea off the ground this month for less than $1500. 

Actually, the total cost comes in under $1100 (with some wiggle room). It isn’t a small chunk of money by any means, but it’s definitely more palatable than coughing up $5000 before ever knowing what your profitability might be.

Before she became a Peloton instructor, motivational speaker, founder, and author, Tunde Oyeneyin had a lucrative beauty career. She left it behind to pursue the world of fitness as a Peloton instructor, though it wasn’t overnight success for Tunde. She didn’t nail her first Peloton audition… But Tunde didn’t give up. 

SPEAK is an acronym that guides Tunde’s life and pushes her forward and upward through challenges and setbacks, always reaching for her best, most purpose-filled life. In this conversation, we talk about her career evolution, building confidence, and the five words that continue to guide her (and will guide you) to live her best life.

562: Screw Balance, This is the New Goal
25:45

The undertones of “achieving balance” are more associated with perfection than reaching a realistic goal that gives us full, impactful, purpose driven lives. While the intention may have been good, the execution woke up something else in us. It’s like we all forgot that balance is a moment, not a lifetime.

Let’s talk about this newer word going around, and in my opinion, a word that reaches far beyond the buzz of a buzzword and can actually be used throughout a lifetime— “integration.” What is integration, how does it beat balance, and what does it look like in our own lives? We’re going to get into all of the above,

561: The Crucial Difference Between Founder and CEO
36:47

Nothing bad happens when women make more money. There’s nothing wrong with a woman building a business that scales her income and impact, despite what society makes us feel about wealth and earning more money than our male counterparts. Suneera Madhani shouts it from the rooftops to remind women that aspirations as female founders are valid and absolutely possible. So together, we’re digging into one of my favorite acronyms… CEO. 

What’s the difference between a business owner or a founder and a CEO? How can you up-level your business and make more money, catapulting you into the 2% club with a million dollars in revenue? How can you overcome your fears of stepping into the leadership role you deserve to claim?

I’m in this season of life where I want to focus on the needle movers and prioritize projects that require less effort but still generate results – not just short term, but long term as well! That’s why in today’s episode I’m going to share something new that we experimented with last year, something I’ve coined “lazy launching”, with lazy being a GOOD thing.

I’ll share how we generated over $50,000 in one week without a ton of work, how we created an evergreen campaign that makes us money while we sleep and why this method of launching might be smart for you if you’re in a busy season.

Now that I’m a mom of two, the mom-life-CEO-life juggle looks a lot like tossing several fragile plates in the air and hoping my husband and I can catch them before they shatter on the ground. Finding ways to parent mindfully through new baby days, toddler dynamics, and growing a business has been a learning experience for us all. 

Avital Schreiber Levy’s tips and guidance for entrepreneurial parents are invaluable, and I’m absolutely going to be taking notes on this one. We’ll talk about the challenges facing parents today, how to navigate working from home as a business owner with little ones who are also at home, integrating mom life and work life, and how to overcome the overwhelm that can show up when parenting toddlers and small children.

Did you know that I used to say I wasn’t going to have kids? Before I inadvertently write 10k words on the whole story here (I already did this in my book!) I decided I wanted to *talk* with you about it. Will you join me for a chat? My podcast producer, Kylie, is helping me walk through the process of how I went from hiding my true desires (and fear) or parenthood behind a thin career veil… to finally allowing those desires to bleed through. 

Now, I know this is definitely not everyone’s roadmap, but I do think it’s easy to want something bad enough that we try and teach ourselves to not want it— maybe even to despise it —  just so we don’t get hurt. I hid a part of me behind my career, and turns out you can’t hide from yourself for long! And for that, I am so, SO grateful. Can’t wait to share more about these life lessons with you.

552: Think You Need to Reinvent Yourself? Listen to This
38:18

What does it mean to reinvent yourself? Though you might be quick to assume you need to scrap everything and start with a blank slate, I encourage you to pause and consider this: The best power of reinvention lies in leveraging everything you’ve ever done – the good, the bad, the ugly, the successes and failures. Reinvention literally taps into the very real (and often unappreciated and unarticulated) skills, insights and expertise you have gained along the way. So you don’t need to try to create a new personality from scratch to reinvent yourself.

 

In this episode, we’re covering the concept of reinvention – what it means, how to visualize and identify the new evolving version of you, and aligning your priorities to truly step into the reinvented version of you.

38:51

No matter where you look on social media, content creators are using their platforms to serve their audiences with the clothing, skincare, gadgets, foods, and other goods they love. And brands are seeing the true power of an influencer with a strong voice and dedicated following. Raissa Gerona was one of the first brand-side leaders of the influencer marketing movement, pitching her idea for an influencer trip to her new employer, Revolve, as a way to build buzz, engagement, and sales through social media. The idea was a runaway hit, and now influencers are a key element of Revolve’s marketing strategy.

In this conversation, you’ll learn about the evolution of influencer marketing, advice for starting and growing your own business as an influencer, as well as how to leverage the power of this unique type of marketing for your own products.

548: Who's In My Close Circle? Top 5 Kinds of People to Have in Your Life
26:57

The whole “people come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime” saying sounds cheesy, but really when you break it down, there’s truth to it! If every relationship in our life was the exact same, we wouldn’t grow or be challenged and stretched by those who enter our lives, heck, if we kept every friendship through every walk of life, we wouldn’t have the time or energy to go deep. 

Your childhood best friends serve a different purpose than your life partner, and your siblings offer different perspectives and company to you than, say, your work friends or peers. In this episode, you’ll learn the 5 kinds of relationships I think everyone should prioritize in their life! Let’s get into it, friends.

What we believe is true about ourselves can absolutely transform the ways we show up in every area of our lives: in our work, our relationships, our communities, our creativity, our conflict, in the thoughts we hear in our heads day in and day out! WHO we believe we are directly affects what we do. 

In this episode, I want to get into just how intertwined confidence is with your sense of success, your sense of peace that you carry with you, and how to get really clear on the kind of warrior you are. You’ll learn 4 ways to rewire some of the internal dialogues that aren’t serving us in any way, so that we can experience a real, effective, and joyful mindset about ourselves.

42:26

We talk a lot about online courses on the Goal Digger Podcast. After all, online courses play a major role in my business and have changed my life completely. We’ve talked about mini-courses, signature courses, how to build, sell, and automate your course… But maybe the structure of the courses we talk about doesn’t quite fit the topic or idea you have. Maybe you need a different kind of online course for what you want to teach. Ever hear of a cohort?

Cohort-based courses combine live workshops, videos, articles, and projects to create impactful learning experiences. It’s about your students learning from each other and by doing. I am so excited to explore this different kind of online course. Wes Kao helped create the modern cohort-based education movement with Seth Godin. Now she’s taking the category she helped create to the next level with her new startup Maven, the world’s first digital platform for cohort-based courses.

We shouldn’t have to reach burnout just to allow ourselves some margin for rest. We shouldn’t work ourselves to exhaustion before realizing there’s got to be a better way.

45:10

In the online space, it’s easy to get pulled into the thought that we can only show up when we’re polished and perfect and presentable. For years, the highlight reel of Instagram had us believing that perfection is the only acceptable goal. Now? Finding new feeds to follow where realness, not the highlight reel, is the focus… That’s what I’m after. And that’s why I love following Radhi Devlukia Shetty.

Carving out her own identity, eliminating the negative self-talk, pursuing her individual passions, launching product-based business with her husband, showing up (even when she’s in her PJs), and how she always seems to know how to remind people what’s important and what matters – That’s what we’re talking about in this deep conversation.

That’s what we’re digging into for this Goal Digger Podcast coaching session.

Quinn Louise is here and this is the story of how it all happened.

While the details are fresh in my mind, I wanted to capture the story of our newest addition’s birth on the podcast! These kinds of stories are never quite as we plan or expect them, but I think a lot of parents will get me on this: babies don’t really care about our plans! And I’m certainly not complaining a single bit. The Kutcher fam is more than complete, and I think I might be basking in the sheer, incalculable magic of that for a long time.

Celebration can look like a hundred different things - it might be taking a moment to breathe and say a prayer of gratitude, it might be booking a dinner out at your favorite restaurant, it might mean going on a nice long scenic run in your area, it might be getting yourself a new item you’ve been eyeing, it might mean a day off or it might be simply sharing your win with a loved one. 

It’s less about the “how” and more about the habit of doing it regularly, with wins both big and small. If you’ve been waiting for an excuse to pause and celebrate, today I’m sharing 17 wins for business owners to honor in your own way, because these are the things that truly matter!

What do you want to be when you grow up? Do you remember being asked that question? It seems to be a favorite question to ask kids -- the responses are usually filled with the biggest, most magical dreams of the youngest minds. But what if your interests and dreams as a kid could tell you more about your true passions to pursue as an adult?

Jennifer Hochstadt is a former television producer turned family lifestyle photographer and now business owner and co-founder of a brand I absolutely love, a brand I’ve personally invested in -- Baby Barn. Each pivot, each ‘yes’ to a new opportunity and experience brought her closer to what she really wanted to do with her career, and much of the inspiration came from what she was interested in as a kid. I’m so excited for Jennifer to share her story, and to dig into the pivots and decisions that led her to launch her brand and business.

Dr. Maya Shankar is a cognitive scientist who studies how our minds work and how we change. Her career milestones are nothing short of impressive -- from convincing the White House to create a job for her to her work in human behavior and decision-making at Yale, Oxford and Stanford, and she recently launched her own podcast called, A Slight Change of Plans. 

Dr. Shankar is on Goal Digger to explore the sometimes stress-inducing topic of change. When confronted with a major life or career change, how do we manage and thrive?

Are you more likely to follow your intuition or the numbers when it comes to big business decisions? I think intuition is a superpower for women entrepreneurs. It certainly is for the founder of Beyond Yoga, Jodi Guber Brufksy. As a yoga instructor and life coach, she kept searching for stylish and flattering workout wear to complement not only her teaching and practice, but her life beyond the yoga mat. When she couldn’t find what she wanted, she created it herself. That’s the short version of how Beyond Yoga was born. 

Jodi shares how she learned to hear and follow her intuition, her journey through the growing pains of an apparel brand, and how she’s set her brand apart in a crowded space through storytelling.

Okay, what about this one -- Do you truly know yourself? Do you stand in your full self, taking up the space you earned simply by being born?

Luvvie Ajayi Jones was once afraid to call herself a writer because she was afraid of the title. She nearly skipped out on doing a TED talk that changed her life because of imposter syndrome. Now, she’s a best-settling author and she’s claimed the title “Professional Troublemaker” as she leads people to continue and achieve their audacious dreams in the face of fear.

It’s a brand new year, and for most of us that means new goals, new ideas, and new strategies for building our businesses and killing it online. Also, if you’re anything like me, the first of the year also brings about tons of reflection when it comes to your business, an inventory of sorts of what’s working, where you’re getting stuck, and a plan of what you hope to build and create.

Artists, makers, musicians, designers, photographers, anyone who turns their art into a business, this one's for you. When you decide to turn your art into a business, you open yourself up to so much opportunity, as well as a whole host of challenges. Critique and criticism become part of your daily routine, because it’s that critique that makes customers happy with an end product. And I can remember from my photography days, that a lot less of your time is dedicated to actually creating, and way more is spent on the nuts and bolts of running a business. 

Someone whose artistic talent, as well as her business sense, I admire so much is Sheila Chen. I’m so excited to hear all about Sheila’s journey into the creative entrepreneur space, what she’s learned about navigating the space, how she markets her craft, and the lessons in boundaries that keep her business a fulfilling endeavor.

414: My Easy 3-Step Process for Evaluating New Opportunities
26:23

If you’ve got a million ideas from your brainstorm sessions or a handful of opportunities showing up in your world, it can be downright confusing, and you may be tempted to just say “yes” to everything. You know, to see what works. That whole “spaghetti on the wall” idea throwing it to see what sticks.

But before you jump into a new endeavor just because it seems shiny and exciting and lights up one of your passion lightbulbs, I want to walk you through the process I take to really pause, contemplate, and make an informed decision when it comes to new business ventures and partnerships.

413: Passive Income Ideas Anyone Can Add to Their Business
47:11

Passive income is one of those things I could talk about for days on end because becoming a mom really reminded me why I decided to build my own business as an entrepreneur. I simply do not want to be on someone else’s clock, in someone else’s office, trading what could be precious family time for a predetermined amount of income. Creating passive income streams was the first real eye opener that showed me I don’t have to trade time for money. 

Abby Harriman is a long-time student of mine, and she’s ready to create passive income streams that allow her to scale without losing time with her family. In this coaching session, I’m tackling her questions on value ladders, low priced offers, strategies for automation and outsourcing, and low budget ways to get the help you need in your business when you’re just getting started.

411: How Emotional Intelligence Impacts My Personal and Professional Relationships
01:17:58

We’ve all heard of an IQ test -- the evaluation of our intelligence quotient. But what about EQ? We can learn a lot from evaluating our emotional intelligence. My whole team recently started working with the incredible Tieko Nejon, an expert in the emotional intelligence space. 

Part of her work with our team was administering an Emotional Intelligence assessment with a series of questions that return a score, or EQ. The full report is a bulky document with a breakdown of all the different ways to understand your own personal emotional intelligence, and ways to strengthen those skills. In this episode with Tieko, she’s actually going to dig into MY EQ report and really put me in a vulnerable place. My goal for you is to hear how to analyze your own emotional intelligence, through putting myself in the scary spotlight.

410: What Your Website Must Have to Make More Sales
26:33

Let’s talk websites. There’s more to a great website than aesthetics. Bottom line, the user friendliness and user experience of your website is what will lead to conversions for your prospects. 

If your website doesn’t make that initial impact or lacks clear messaging, if people can’t figure out how to work with or buy from you, or if there’s just too much going on, that’s potential for major lost sales and that’s exactly what I want for you to avoid. Let’s talk about what your website REALLY needs in order to take visitors from semi-interested skimmers to full-blown, obsessed and paying clients (or customers).

408: 5 Easy Ways to Get Your Emails Opened More Often
28:14

It doesn’t matter what kind of business you’re operating, it doesn’t matter if you’re a solopreneur or have a team of 20, it doesn’t matter what kind of social media presence you have… The true power to harness your audience lies in email lists. Your email list offers you these opportunities for sweet and direct conversations with the people who are most interested in your brand and what you have to offer. And I don’t care if you have 100 subscribers or 10,000, those people opted into YOUR list for a reason, and they’re who you want to nurture and serve and pay attention to the MOST earnestly.

We’re going to talk about the one of the most integral parts of email marketing, which is getting your emails read! I am going to equip you with the tools to make sure every time someone hears that “you’ve got mail” voice in their head and sees an email from ya land in their inbox, they are stoked to open it up and read it.

407: How to Create Business Boundaries with Those You Love
32:29

It’s been over a year since the man of my dreams, my baby daddy, my husband Drew Kutcher stepped up to the mic for an episode of The Goal Digger Podcast. Time is flying! I invited him back on the show for a deep dive discussion about navigating business as it intertwines with our marriage. After almost a decade of being Mr. and Mrs. we’ve navigated through many different seasons of professional and personal life together, so we are going back in time to the earliest days of entrepreneurship to reflect on what we’ve learned. 

This episode is for you if you’re curious about how to talk to your partner about your big business dreams, or if you’re considering going into business with your significant other. Drew reveals how he actually felt when I told him I was leaving my stable corporate job, his advice for starting a business that’s separate from your relationship, and what it’s like to be a partner to a dreamer.

No matter what kind of business you have, or want to have, one of the best strategies to figure out what your customers want from you is to ask. There’s an art to this process, and an artist I love to watch in action is Bethany McDaniel. 

Now you may have heard Bethany’s name on the podcast before if you’ve been around here for a while. She was a guest back on New Year’s Day 2018. And her business has expanded like crazy since then -- Thanks to her continual focus on listening to what her customers want. In the 2020 environment where people are shopping for needs over wants, I’m so excited to hear from Bethany about how the feedback loop is different, and how she’s still showing up in ways both new and devoted customers want.

404: 3 Questions You Should Ask Before Redesigning Your Website
42:59

How often do you go back to your roots, where it all started? I did this the other day with the Goal Digger Podcast, rewinding all the way back to episode number two and my first ever guest on the show, Jen Olmstead. I wanted to invite her back on the podcast for another go-around, because so much has changed since that episode on November 18, 2016. 

Jen Olmstead knows websites, and she’s one half of the Tonic Site Shop duo that has been helping Jenna Kutcher websites look fab since my very first site design. Jen knows how to present your brand in a way that stands out from the masses and attracts your ideal customers, even without a fully custom web design. We’re talking about what she knows best -- website design. She shares why “looking the part” doesn’t have to mean a totally custom design, the crucial components of any business site, and the key clues that your site might be ready for a little refresh.

How old were you when you learned that your menstrual cycle had phases? And those phases, when tracked and studied on a personal level, can unlock some pretty mind blowing productivity and wellness changes? Were you *today* years old? Yeah, I spent most of my menstruating life not knowing anything in-depth about my cycle.

We’ve had a period coach educator on the show before and it’s clear — you’re a big fan of learning about your body and understanding your cycle in a way to help you do more and do better in business. If you are someone who menstruates, Berrion Berry is about to become your new BFF. She’s the creator of the The Flo Academy, educating people on holistic menstrual health. She helps her clients understand and harness the power of their cycle to increase energy, enhance their mood, and alleviate PMS naturally. If THAT sounds like something you could get on board with, then it’s time for you to meet Berrion Berry.

That big goal or dream you have? It’s actually the very thing that holds us back more often than not! Let’s focus more on the small, daily steps and actions to get you there because that is what will change your life.

In this episode, we’ll talk about how to build these systems so that you can achieve ANY lofty goal you might have on your heart, whether it’s for work, your family, your finances, or something personal. And more than that, we’ll talk about how to create habits that reinforce your system, so achieving a goal isn’t just a one-time thing, but a life-changing thing that sticks around and makes you better long-term, not just on the day you get to check off your goal.

Does it get any better than talking social media, email list building, AND a little strategy?! This is basically like Christmas morning for me! In this episode, we’re delving into how they all go hand in hand and how to strategically use your social platforms to grow that email list.

But first things first, why does this even matter? Why *should* we use social media to grow the list? After all, isn’t social media its own separate beast meant for engaging and beating the algorithm and connecting with your ideal audience and booking your dream customers and clients? Well, yes, but it’s also completely owned and controlled by other people. It’s not your domain, you don’t own your followers, it’s not your platform, so ultimately, you’re left with almost zero control. Hit play for my social media secrets that will help you grow your email list.

That’s the short version of the Coconut Whisk origin story, but I’ll let Bella tell you the whole thing.

Bella created Coconut Whisk, building the company alongside her personal brand.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Who here started a lemonade stand as their first endeavor into the business world? I did.

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.

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

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.

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!

Educator, advocate, activist, storyteller, consultant, philanthropist, dog mom… Just a few titles that my friend Jess Weiner can hang her hat on.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

So if you’re one of those people who’s had this inspiration and pull to start your own podcast, this episode is created for you today, my friend. I am sharing the top 3 things I recommend doing if you want to start your own podcast, and they might surprise you!

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.

362: This ONE System Was the Missing Piece I Needed in My Business
22:42

My business coach gave me a piece of advice that has forever changed how my business functions. I actually used to manage a team of 20 without any sort of system or task list. 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.

In this episode, I share how we use SOPs in my business, and more importantly, WHY they’re so important and HOW you can begin to create them for yourself, too.

Projects and processes feeling nebulous and hard to nail down? Let me tell you about our favorite tool for streamlining our business operations, Monday.com. Press play.

361: What is Tapping? A 5-Minute Guided Practice for Anxiety and Stress
43:42

Have you heard of tapping? It’s a technique that mixes meditation and psychology and acupressure to manage everything from stress and anxiety to limiting beliefs and more. Maybe it sounds woo-woo on the surface to you right now, but the research behind tapping is enough to make even my analytical mind curious. And maybe you’re wondering too, could tapping be for me?

Jessica Ortner is here to teach us the world of tapping, the science behind it all, the massive benefits of the technique, and even lead us through a 5 minute exercise on air. I’m so excited to try this out with you.

360: 5 Ways to Show Up On Instagram in This Season
21:13

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.

359: Boot-Strapped to Billion Dollars: The IT Cosmetics Story
52:18

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. I can’t wait for you to hear the scrappy moves she pulled in her early days, all the way to the biggest lesson she learned when her vision was challenged.

358: Can Money Buy Happiness? An Unscripted Conversation with my Business Coach
45:43

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?

But never fear because my team and I get to work breaking down new strategies to share with you, so you can get on top of the changes faster. The most recent change we’ve been navigating? Pinterest. 

A few months ago we received embargoed information from Pinterest in partnership with Tailwind that stated the way the algorithm prioritized and distributed content was changing. 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!

The good news? We have seen incredible growth in our stats (like, numbers in the millions). So what does it mean for YOU and what key things can you incorporate into your Pinterest strategy for the updated algorithm? Press play to find out.

356: These 5 Thoughts Are Holding You Back
24:04

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. 

It is CHALLENGING work but also the most rewarding work. I want to walk you through 5 of the most common limiting beliefs that women encounter and how to move past them.

355: An Action Plan to Manage Financial Fear and Anxiety Right Now
41:14

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. Her mission is to help you take action with your finances, so you can begin to live the life you desire. This episode is about taking action with your finances, whatever state they’re in right now, to find confidence moving forward.

No regrets… But hindsight is usually 20-20. 

It’s funny looking back at life and realizing just how many things we could’ve done better, streamlined sooner or simply made smarter decisions about. I’m not an advocate of living with any regrets, but I do think looking at our past is a valuable way to see just how far we’ve come and what we can do better going forward.

Question: How can you draw a straight line from yourself to the cash? Answer: It’s as simple as ONE product. You only need one product, and one strategy to turn a profit. And that’s how Danielle Leslie built her business.

Now she teaches her students a system for creating and launching an online course that proves complexity isn’t necessary. It’s about leaning into the systems that WORK.

This stuff is my JAM and I’m excited to nerd out with another course creator right now. Honestly, her approach to course creation and launching is so different from mine, that if the concept hasn’t landed for you before, and you still feel unsure about the course world, I promise this interview will make you think differently.

Pssst… We planned a surprise for Jenna and you get to hear it play out on this episode of the Goal Digger Podcast!

Hey friends, it’s Kylie, the manager and producer of the show. When Jenna told me she wanted to do a new Ask Jenna Anything episode this month and we realized it would land on her birthday, I couldn’t waste the opportunity to surprise her. 

You’ll hear from some familiar names and voices of Team JK in this episode… But you’ll also hear a few surprises, too. Jenna had no idea what she was sitting down to record. I’ve gave her strict instructions -- No listening to the questions before hitting record (so no preparation!), she must listen and answer in order, and she must keep the track rolling the whole time so we could hear her reactions.

I am so excited for you to hear this candid, off-the-cuff version of Jenna as she answers questions about her personal life, business, what makes her laugh and more.

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.

DISCLAIMER: We are not accountants, lawyers, or government officials and information is subject to change.  We are two small business owners and supporters sharing what we have learned through our own research.

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. 

The shop is stunning but the mission behind it makes each item even more beautiful. I am so excited for Hannah to share what the early days of The Little Market looked like, how she and Lauren partnered and leveraged each other’s gifts to build the organization, and her advice for getting started on your own non-profit to celebrate and support a cause close to your heart.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.”

Ready to discover your why? Press play.

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?

Are you ready to listen in on a chat with this brilliant business mind? Press play.

338: This Straightforward Exercise Will Pinpoint Your Superpower
24:02

You owe the world your knowledge. It’s truly that special. 

That thing that you know so well, your superpower, isn’t second nature to everyone, or others would have to work for years to gain the same level of knowledge that you have. And so many times, we’re so caught up with life and working our booties off to reach the next level, that we have no clue what our own superpower even is.

If you’ve been wondering where your knowledge and natural talents meet in a way that you, too, can package them up and offer to others, this is the episode for you, my friend. Grab a pen and notebook, get cozy!

337: Could You Go On Shark Tank?
47:53

What’s it like to walk that long hallway with the intimidating music, diving head first into a pool of hungry  millionaire investors, hoping quietly that you don’t forget any details of your pitch? What’s it like to be on ABC’s Shark Tank? My friend Kate Field knows and she’s going to spill the tea on the whole experience. 

The prep was intense, but Kate told me she could talk for DAYS about the research and number crunching that went into her pitch for Shark Tank, and why that process is helpful for any business owner, not just one looking to impress Mr. Wonderful.

This is an episode about knowing your numbers, fine-tuning a pitch, and what it’s really like to be on Shark Tank.

THE OG JK DAYS. Are you curious about the mechanics, mistakes, and money behind the first course I ever launched in March of 2015? 

I get asked all the time about how I got started, how I transitioned from full-time photographer to digital marketing educator, podcaster, influencer, and all the other hats I love wearing now.

I’ll share the decisions I made with my first course that I sorta cringe at now, what I think went well, how much money I made, what techniques I’m STILL using today, how I pieced things together for a very haphazard launch, and all the other juicy details about the Jenna Kutcher Course. Yep, that was the name. So embarrassing. 

Oh, if I would have known the things I know now… Let me share those with you!

I brought my feminine vibes and maternal energy to a secret mastermind with a bunch of dudes and here’s what happened...

A few months ago, I flew 14 hours around the world with Drew and Conley and landed in the stunning lush country that you’ve seen on water bottles, Fiji. I’d been invited to a mastermind led by my business coach Dean Graziosi and Tony Robbins. 

Here are the 3 most impactful lessons I walked away from Fiji with, and also the most common questions I got from the guys in attendance — some of them might just surprise you.

Sustainability is sexy. If you’re not conscious of the sustainability of your daily habits, this conversation will open your eyes in a new way. It did for me. 

I met Manuela Baron at an Aerie Real Role Model photoshoot. I was obsessed with her mission and the way she shows up online for a cause she’s passionate about. She’s raising awareness for going green in a million ways.

Beyond reusable water bottles and ditching plastic straws, what can we do? How can we be more sustainably conscious in our lives and businesses? And more importantly, why should we care? Manuela’s mission is important and she’s here to help us think and act a little more GREEN.
