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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If you hang out on the Goal Digger Instagram you’ll know that we often ask you what YOU, our listeners want to hear... and we really do listen! So many of you wanted to know more about selling products, designs, and creations on Etsy, and… enter Natalie Fugere! Natalie is a faithful Goal Digger, and after seeing all of your Etsy questions on the Instagram post, Natalie reached out and offered to teach us how to make it big on Etsy!

I loved how she presented herself and couldn’t help from swooning while looking at her shop! Natalie started an Etsy shop when she was just 18 with a ten dollar bill and a vision. Four years later and her business, The Painted Press, has gained national media attention, supports her and her family, and sits in the top 1% of all Etsy shops! It is her mission to provide an affordable, unique gift giving option and to support her team made up entirely of college and high school students. Beyond the beautiful trinkets, Natalie is a brilliant businesswoman and today she is going to teach you how to make it BIG on Etsy!

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

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

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

“You’re fat.”

“Unhealthy”

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

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

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

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

“You’re way too aggressive, I’m out.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My husband, Drew, and I are about to dig into your questions revolving everything from marriage to personal all the way to business.

We are fully covering ALL the nitty gritty details of your questions…

If you’re wondering how we balance business and play, what our relationship story is, what it’s REALLY like to marry a #girlboss (and how Drew truly feels about how much I share online), or how our most embarrassing habits! , then this episode is for you.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Let Me Give It To Ya Straight:

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

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

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

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

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

Ready to post with purpose? Thought so!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

May 14, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

May 9, 2018

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

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

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

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

(Is your name mentioned on air?!)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

--------

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It’s awkward, it’s confusing, and it’s often discouraging. What am I talking about? GETTING SPONSORSHIPS. Yup, we’re going there. What do you do when you need funding for an event or business venture? Who do you call? What do you even say? Well, For serial entrepreneur Brandice Daniel, “no” is not the end of the negotiations, it’s only the beginning...

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

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

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

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

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

Giddy up, Goal Diggers, because today we are digging into Writing a Book 101 with the incredible author and girl boss, Rachel Hollis! Rachel is the host of Dais podcast, and she was such a joy to interview. This rockstart woman is a best-selling author, tv personality, public speaker, CEO, and mother of four. As if that wasn’t enough, Rachel was named by Inc. Magazine as one of the "Top 30 Entrepreneurs under 30” and she is deeply passionate about women in business.

In addition to an online reach in the millions, Rachel has written several books from cookbooks and fiction series all the way to her most recent “Girl, Wash Your Face”. and has one of the most impressive book launch processes I’ve ever seen, and today she is peeling back the curtain and letting us see how the magic happens! If you have ever asked "how to write a book, "how to self publish a book" or "how to get a book published" Rachel walks through each option with tangible advice. From creativity to finances, we are talking about it ALL! If writing has always been on your bucket list, but you don't even know where to start, you are in the right place!

Have you wondered "Should I join a mastermind?" "Should I lead a mastermind", or the most common, "What is a mastermind?!"

...You're in the right place.

This year started with a bang as I hosted my first retreat with the Jenna Kutcher Mastermind group. 25 incredible women from all over the country (and Canada) gathered together in Waco, Texas where we spent 3 days diving into their lives, digging into their businesses, and helping them establish the dreams and set the goals they will achieve over the next year.

Throughout the year we will meet up in person 3 times at different locations where we will come together, troubleshoot things in our businesses, learn new techniques and strategies, and commune as a whole. Hosting a mastermind is probably the BEST thing I’ve ever done as an entrepreneur and I am so thankful that I get to lead these women through their best year yet. I’ve talked about why I don’t offer one-on-one coaching in an episode on the show and so today I want to break down the 5 big lessons I learned from leading a mastermind and share a little about our experience.

If you want to gain knowledge in fostering community, building your business, creating meaningful connections, and taking your business to the next level, you're in the right place!
