Dean always helps me see myself and my business through a new lens — a wider angle but with a sharper focus. We are days away from 2020 and with all of this new energy and anticipation for a new year pouring in, I’m eager to chat with Dean so you can listen in on his advice, too.

What does he see as my super power? What should I include in my 2020 goal list? If he were me, what would he do next? I’m putting myself on review with Dean because I think you’ll love hearing his advice, too.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Our sweet baby girl is ONE! My husband and baby daddy Drew Kutcher is back on the Goal Digger Podcast for a special birthday edition of the show. We’re answering your questions about life, parenthood, marriage, business, and more. 

I love that Conley will get to go back and listen to us talk about our first year keeping her alive. I hope she loves this episode as much as we do! Maybe she’ll feel a normal dose of embarrassment over her parents when she listens, but for now I’ll assume she thinks we’re AMAZING. 

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.

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.

I’m part of a SUPER exclusive club… The Mom Club. 

I’m giggling as I write this because the super exclusive club is actually just a super long text thread with my friends Ashlyn Carter and Sarah Adler. Recognize those names? That’s because they’ve been on the show before. Last year, we all had babies at the same time so we’re getting The Mom Club together to talk about it. 

Wonder what happened to our businesses after baby? This episode is like a peek into my group chat with these women. Press play right now.

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.

BEHIND THE SCENES: What really happened when I flew my team first class to a retreat in Arizona…

Part girls trip, part dreaming session, part spa retreat. My meet-up with this team of incredible women had it all, and WE want to take you behind the scenes. 

For this episode recapping our team retreat, it only seems right to have my team lead you through what it was like, what we did, how it was structured, and what they got out of it. So get ready to hear from the voices who manage this show, answer your emails, write our content, and contribute to this business each day with their own superpowers. 

By the end of it, I hope you take away a few ideas for connecting with your remote team and why a retreat just might be the thing you need to get to the next level. I’m so excited for you to meet them all.

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.

Having a hard time getting people on board with your business idea? Press play right now.

My guest, Rea Ann Silva, can sympathize. But when her idea for the Beautyblender was shot down time after time, she learned how to make things happen on her own, finetuning her pitch along the way until finally she heard a YES. Actually, it was more like a “Yes, but…” I’ll let her tell the whole story. 

Rea Ann is here to share her story of product development, of getting people to see her vision, and her advice for moving the needle forward even when life and distractions pull you away from your biggest goal.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This episode is for anyone wondering: Where to start, how to begin, and what to do when you finally decide to start.

Need help with your #Hashtag strategy? Press play. 

I’m debunking the age-old hashtag myths and preaching some “pound sig” truths. A strong, optimized hashtag strategy can encourage authentic engagement, attract dream clients and followers to your feed, grow your audience, and foster greater community. So where to begin?

Should you use the same 30 hashtags on every post? Should you create new tags? Should you just ignore hashtags altogether, hoping they fade away like the landline or AOL Instant Messenger? 

This is my biggest hashtag deep dive ever. I’ll show you how to research the best hashtags for your content and teach my favorite strategies for leveraging hashtags to grow your following and business.

It’s another Goal Digger Coaching Session on the show and my student, Jaime Fenwick, is calling me out for something we haven’t spent nearly enough time on: Instagram Stories, Videos, Livestreams and more.

Whoops! Coming clean on a few things here.

Yep, I’m taking ownership of the marketing mistakes I’ve made because, luckily, I learned from ‘em and I want to help you skip the mess up and get straight to the level up. 

This episode is laser focused on 5 classic marketing mistakes I’ve made and you might be making -- from drawing assumptions to wasting time in the details. 

Marketing doesn’t have to feel manipulative or deceptive. In fact, it shouldn’t! This episode will identify the marketing mistakes you might be guilty of (hello, I was also guilty of these!) and I’ll talk you through strategies to fix ‘em. 

If you’re not seeing results from your marketing efforts, or you’re looking to take off in the right direction, this is your episode.

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.

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.

Ed Mylett is getting the Goal Digger treatment. Press play right now.

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.

Confession time: There’s one major platform on the internet I’m not using to its max potential. 

I’ve got Instagram down to a science, a healthy and effective strategy on Facebook… But there’s still one big one that eludes me and that platform is LINKEDIN. 

Like my profile is there, I have a really old picture, a few notes about me… But that’s it. So like I always do when I want to learn and grow new skills and knowledge, I’m turning to an expert. 

Jena Viviano is an ex-Wall Streeter turned career coach and entrepreneur who helps go-getter professionals articulate their personal branded career story to land their dream jobs.

If you want to leverage LinkedIn to attract new career opportunities, make professional connections, and potentially grow your business, this is your episode. This is a masterclass in all things LinkedIn.

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. 

The price to press play is $0.00, by the way.

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.
