We’re talking all about SIDE-HUSTLES! My business started as a side hustle, and to this day I have other projects and multiple streams of income that I consider to be side-hustles themselves.

452: How to Hire a Team Who Loves Your Biz as Much as You Do
35:42

You don’t need a team of 10, or even one full-time employee to be able to begin outsourcing and releasing your workload capacity. The beauty of working for yourself means YOU create your hours, schedule, and days, and you can also choose the tasks and projects that you can offload from your plate a few hours a week to a contractor when the timing is right.

Let’s get into it and walk through the exact steps you can begin taking, today, to get an exceptional support team in place for your business to thrive—and for you to have the capacity to dream, rest, build, and breathe a little easier again.

451: A Lesson in Unapologetic Decisions for Empowered Women
54:45

From the life of a housewife feeling stuck to the $1 Billion dollar sale of her company -- Lisa Bilyeu is the definition of a success story. Billion can sound like this far off, unreal number, but I can assure you that Lisa Bilyeu is as real as it gets. Lisa is the co-founder of Quest Nutrition, she’s the President of Women of Impact, and she’s the confident, unapologetic, no BS voice that fires up hundreds of thousands of people to seize and celebrate who they are without justifying it to anyone.

When did she step into entrepreneurship? What was it like building a billion dollar business alongside her husband? What does she have to say to the people who challenge her decision not to have children? How does she handle and harness negative self talk? And what’s next for the woman who champions the power of all women?

Sophia Amoruso started her business on ebay and it turned into the massive fashion name of NastyGal. Her story transitioned from a 22-year old millionaire to a very public journey through incredible business challenges… And that was just the beginning of the wild journey of business and life this GirlBoss has continued to ride, straight into the fine-tuned version of success she’s creating for herself and others today.

Over the years, I have been able to shift my money mindset in a positive way, and it’s transformed so many aspects of my life. I feel like I’ve finally learned to trust myself, think strategically about my money, and live in a more abundant mindset. 

This episode isn’t created to fix the bigger problems created by broken systems, systems that I am committed to helping change, but I do hope that it helps for you to look at money through a different lens that invites more freedom or understanding in your life and for the role money plays in it.

My sister runs a thriving blog and Instagram platform in her perfectly-Kate niche, I’ve got my business that you know fairly well by now, and then there’s Joe who built an incredible advertising agency to help small businesses sell their products on Amazon. He also travels the country in an RV with his wife and three children — don’t worry, we’ve got a story around that that you’ll get to hear too!

46:17

Are you a troublemaker? Do you embrace fear and move forward in spite of it? Does breaking the rules and carving your own path invigorate you… Or is that the last thing you want to do? 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.

Starting, running and scaling a business requires a lot of things. It requires resources, resourcefulness, time, energy, talent, and straight up grit. When you’re just getting going or you’re slowly gaining momentum it can be easy to get caught up in all the resources that you feel like you need that you forget how to be resourceful.

In 2020, Dre Thomas had to take her Smile On Me events virtual, like so many others. She knew that the need for connection last year was greater than ever, and she wasn’t about to let her community down.

If you’re ready to harness the power for what I forecast as the top methods to drive results on Instagram in the new year, stick with me. It’s not as hard as we’d like to sometimes make it. 

As we all roll into 2021, there’s not a better time to reevaluate your Instagram strategy and find ways to level up for the new year. 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. 

If you’re ready to seriously rock Instagram this year, let’s dive on in.

427: How This Artist Generates New Business While Enforcing Boundaries
40:06

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.

I admire SO much when other leaders and people I look up to can honestly show up and let you into the process, so that’s really what today’s all about.

425: Does Manifesting Work? Tune in to Learn the Neuroscience
49:09

Where does visualization fit into how to plan and goal set for the future? What about manifestation -- is that a tool in your kit for going after what you want? Before you cast off manifestation and visualization as too “woo-woo”, I want you to meet Dr. Tara Swart. She is a neuroscientist, a medical doctor, and so much more, and her work is anchored in researching the science behind manifestation. 

Dr. Swart is going to share that research with us and the proven methods for visualizing and manifesting the life and business you want. This is more than making a vision board on Pinterest with your dream house, this is a tactical lesson in manifestation and visualization, backed by neuroscience.

If you know me, you know I’m not a huge “resolutions” person per se, but I do see the tangible value in reviewing what went down over the past year and seeing what can shift to make the next one even better and I love setting goals and vision casting for what’s coming up. More than just lines on a page, I want to really have a compelling vision of what I hope the year will hold that I can cling to when life hits the fan. 

I’ve spent a lot of time these past few months being quiet and still with myself, almost going internal in order to look not only at my habits and work processes, but also my belief systems, core values, and how I’m showing up in the world. This year, I’ll be approaching goal setting a bit differently. Ready for it? Let’s dive in!

I’m thrilled to welcome back some of your Goal Digger favorites for one more moment of their wisdom and light. I asked them all one very broad question -- What is your advice for 2021? Listening through these I couldn’t help but smile, because just like I knew they would, each one came back with something totally and completely unique to their gifts. 

Happy 2021, everyone. Let’s celebrate in podcast-form, with a virtual party right here on Goal Digger.

416: Words, Phrases & Tactics to NEVER Use in Your Marketing Materials
24:16

Marketing isn’t just having a great offer — It’s the ability to POSITION your offer in a way that makes it not only irresistible to the right clients and customers, those people who without-a-doubt NEED what you’re selling, but also sells the value of what you’ve created in a way that clearly communicates its benefit and positions it correctly so people know if it was created with them in mind.

So let’s get into some marketing practices to portray the BEST messaging that not only supports your audience and encourages them to eventually click purchase with you, but that also positions your offers in a way that’s confident, clear, and cuts through all the noise.

Valuing your products and services can feel like an abstract process. However, there are some key components of pricing and valuation that will shift the way you look at your offers -- whether they’re product or service-based -- and help you effectively put a value on your work that supports your overall brand strategy.

I am thrilled to share the mic with Sari De to dig into pricing advice that you can put into practice today. As a coach, Sari has worked with big name Fortune 100 companies, global ad agencies, even Google, to help women navigate the system and get paid what they’re worth.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Press play right now and don’t forget to pick up Arlan’s new book, “It’s About Damn Time” at your local bookstore.

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. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

345: What It's Really Like to be Married to a Successful Woman
55:17

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.

01:17:32

Talking to my students about what’s been going on since they invested in their dreams gets me all sorts of excited. I have four students on the show who decided a year ago to hand over their credit card for the Knowledge Broker Blueprint.

I took the course, too, twice actually and I could tell you all day long how incredible the content is, how I got a new million dollar idea in the process, and all the real, tangible results I’ve seen since taking it… But I want you to hear from students who were on the fence and took the leap. 

Stephanie Ann, Hans, Hilary and Ty are here to share their before, during, and after stories of KBB, as well as the reservations they had and how those went out the window as they started the course. This is what happens when you invest in your dreams.

30:20

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?

The surprising origin story of her name, what we’re doing as parents that we said we’d NEVER do, and how we’re keeping our marriage in focus with a little babe in the mix. Press play right now.

318: 5 Simple Ways to Refresh a Stale Business
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.

314: Is It Too Late to Start?
35:38

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”.

311: Overcoming Fear with Bethany Hamilton
48:58

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.

How to turn $1000 into a billion dollar business. With a B. 

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. And I want to hear her advice on all of it.

We’ve got a Shark on the show and I’m treating it like a masterclass in pitching, selling, investing and negotiating. We’ll get into the fundamentals of her selling strategy so it can be applied no matter what your business looks like -- product or service, online or in-person, new to the game or a seasoned pro, we’ve got you covered.

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. 

I hope this interview gives you an even wider and deeper view of the educator, the podcast host, the entrepreneur, and the mother who speaks to you each week.

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.

299: Have a College Degree but It's Not Your Passion? Listen to this.

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.

But I want to help you take a day off without those feelings. I want a day off to make you feel elated and free!

You can't -- and shouldn't -- expect yourself to be connected to work and even social media all day every day and still maintain your physical, mental, and emotional health.

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.

The thought of doing THIS when I was just starting out made me woozy. 

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.

292: How I Created and Recorded a Course in 7 Days

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.

31:47

YOU ARE READY for a digital course. Don’t believe me? I’m bringing in the mentor that started it all for ME to prove to YOU that a digital course is totally in your wheelhouse.

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

Is a digital course on your heart but you’re not even sure if you’re ready for it? Maybe you’re new to the idea altogether… Maybe you’ve never taken a full step back to look at your own genius to consider, “Hey, maybe I could do that, too.”

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

Before I even launched my email list, my inner dialog probably sounded a lot like yours. It all can feel confusing but you know who walked me through it? Amy Porterfield. And in this episode, part one of two, we will help you discover all the reasons why you’re ready for a digital course.

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. 

This conversation is anything but the same goal setting fluff and tired motivational quotes -- Marie and I walk through actionable steps to place you at the starting line, poised to make your big dream happen, once and for all. Press play right now.

287: How to Change Your Sales Mindset to Make More Money
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.

286: How-to Launch with What Ya Got
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. If you’re feeling burned out from creating your offer and need some guidance on how to launch it successfully with your small but mighty list, don’t wait to press play.

Ali is a masterful storyteller. The stories behind each piece of fabric, and every single hand of every indiginous artisan that touches her products, are beautifully communicated to the customer, creating a strong connection that have turned her pieces into cherished works of art. 

She stays true to her “why” and the mission to provide reliable and sustainable income opportunities for the artisans that help create her products, all while building a for-profit business with a heart.

Composing the perfect pitch is an art. 

You have to know yourself, your business, or your offer SO well, and then be able to extract the information that is most important to the person or business you’re pitching. The perfect pitch is engaging and informative, and it inspires interest or better yet, action.

Do products like FitBit, OtterBox, SodaStream, and S’well sound familiar? Jules and the discovery team at The Grommet have helped make those a household name.

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. 

I want you to have the tools you need to push away that nagging self-doubt and do the big things you were born to do. At the very least, this will be a jumping off point for you to recognize your Imposter Syndrome and begin working through it to claim your title and place in the world with pride.

There are riches in the niches. Have you heard that before? 

It means the better you know your ideal customer and audience, and can fine tune your offer to meet their needs, the BIGGER you can make it in your own little sliver of the market. 

Some entrepreneurs are so gifted at niching down that they actually invent and pioneer a market for something no one even knew they needed… Today’s guest falls into that category.

Christine Lucas is doing BIG things on Etsy as the creator of Lula Flora, the company that pioneered the mini piñata party favor trend! She carved out a niche in the party decoration market in 2014 and quickly climbed to the top 1% of Etsy sellers, averaging over a quarter million dollars in sales the last couple of years.

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!)

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.

Hit “play” it’s time to get productive up in here.

260: The Best Guide to Get Out of Debt and Actually Save
49:29

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.

She’s so much fun to talk to… I laughed and learned and now it’s your turn. Press play right now.

259: SEO Basics to Refresh Your Site Right Now
37:20

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.

258: How to Start Your Influencer Business without 10K
42:10

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.

257: How to Reverse Engineer the Result You Want
34:38

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.

Work smarter, not harder. How many times have you heard that in your life? That’s the goal, but it’s not always the starting point. It can take years to get your business to a place where it’s running itself, you’re making money while you sleep, and you’re not burning the midnight oil every. single. night.

I love sharing my own strategies on this show for efficient workflows and staying productive, but today with my guest, we’re looking at the science and data behind 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.

Kate Northrup teaches data-driven and soul-driven time and energy management practices that result in saving time, making more money, and experiencing less stress. Check, check and check, right? She’s an author, an educator, a speaker, and today she’s on Goal Digger.

253: If I Had $5,000 to Launch My Biz Here's What I'd Do
42:46

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.

My free strategies to get started, places to save a little cash while growing, and the most important investments… I’m sharing what I’d do with a blank slate, $5K and the knowledge I have now. Listen in right now.

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.

Maybe you’re sitting in our soul-crushing job thinking, “Life has more for me.” That was me in the early days. The windowless corporate office days. The early entrepreneur days asking myself if I could really make it happen.

You don’t know much about how I really got my start or what those early days looked like for me… You’ve heard the story about my $300 Craigslist camera but I want to dive into my reality as I took a leap into the world of entrepreneurship.

Maybe, just maybe you’re sitting where I was those years ago, wanting more but not even sure what “more” could look like or if you could make it happen.

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.

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!

46:34

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.
