Alright, goal diggers… This is a topic that I have personally wrestled with but have rarely talked about, and I think many of you can relate. WORKING FROM HOME CAN BE STRAIGHT UP HARD. People often glamorize working from home and having your own schedule, but there are some challenges we just don't talk about, aren't there?

It can be lonely and draining and it is easy to go literally days without seeing anyone besides your roommate or husband. We’ve all been there . I used to be a self-proclaimed “hermit” until I realized that I genuinely needed outside interaction to be my best self. So if you're like me, in today's show I share how I combatted the loneliness that can come when you work for yourself from home with my top 10 tips to navigating loneliness in working from home.

Working from home will be lonely at times, almost without fail! But you can take charge and make small changes in your daily routine that’ll leave you feeling renewed, energized and fulfilled! Let's do this!

Caitlyn Jeffery is my go-to gal and the first lady I ever hired. She is an absolute powerhouse of a woman and true do-it-all-er. A mom, wife, and the Jenna Kutcher brand manager, she used to own her own business as a virtual assistant until she went full time for my team. Since joining my team she has transitioned from email inbox support to podcast supporter all the way to course content and logistic management. Remember when I said she was a do-it-all-er? I MEANT IT!

But even though she can do it all, doesn’t mean she should- which is why she is the perfect person to chat with about using your specific strengths to capitalize on her role.

Stop letting your titles like "manager", "assistant", "executive" define who you are. "It's easy to wrap yourself in your title", but you need to really look at who you are at your core when you take away your title. "Things change, circumstances change, and who you are at your core- is what your focus should be on your life... and your business as well!". This episode is all about using YOUR strengths to craft your dream job! Goal Diggers, It's time to peel back a layer and really look at yourself.

GUYS, it's one of my favorite episode formats, "Ask Jenna ANYTHING"! Every so often I tune in to answer YOUR biggest questions! From the big topics like what my marriage is like or my ONE "impossible dream that I am a little afraid to say outloud", all the way to the small things (with big impacts) like what my morning routine looks like or what type of diet I follow- YOU GUYS ASK IT ALL! And I'm answering!

While I wish I could dedicate full shows to your questions, a lot of times the responses are brief. This is my best method to answer your questions, give you a behind the scenes look into my life, marriage, home, fashion and of course mac and cheese recipes and connect with you, the listeners. If you have a question you’d love answered, join our Goal Digger Podcast Insiders group on Facebook and once a month you can share your biggest questions and maybe I’ll answer it (and mention you!) on the show!

Join host Jenna Kutcher as she interviews the Lebanese-Canadian author, poet, speaker and educator, Najwa Zebian. Interviewing this inspiring, relatable woman left us inspired to embrace our own unique journey on finding one's voice and pursuing business.

The purpose of this interview is to inspire us, encourage us to practice self-care, and to motivate us to find fulfillment in our work as we set and chase new goals. You may recognize Najwa's two self-published books, Mind Platter and The Nectar of Pain. She is an absolute breath of fresh air in the writing community and beyond.

After a personal experience of being silenced, she has made the decision to string her words in a way that resonates with every soul at a deep level. Her mission is to give a voice to anyone who feels silenced. Within less than two years of publishing her first book, she now inspires hundreds of thousands daily to dive into the depths of feeling in a courageously daring, yet beautifully liberating way.

Ready to feel inspired, motivated, and self-assured? You're in the right spot!
