When we were talking about different ideas for the Goal Digger Podcast, one of the topics that came up was what this year has done to our stamina as business owners. So many people are coming close to throwing in the towel. And I get it, we were all tested in new and challenging ways this year.

Maybe your marketing budget was slashed. Maybe you didn’t have one to begin with. Maybe what you were doing in the past isn’t hitting the mark anymore and you don’t know where to turn. This episode is all about free marketing strategies that you can start employing today. Let this conversation on the Goal Digger Podcast spark new (and free) ideas to get your business, content, and message out into the world once again.

When Bella Lam made the switch to eating vegan and gluten-free, she was instantly faced with the major lack of offerings in the market for her dietary needs. A chocolate chip cookie that fit her needs was like a unicorn. So Bella thought, why not me? Why can’t I create something that’s clearly missing from the market? That’s the short version of the Coconut Whisk origin story, but I’ll let Bella tell you the whole thing.

Bella created Coconut Whisk, building the company alongside her personal brand. She was a student and a CEO, all at once, which came with its own set of learning curves and challenges, but she’s on the podcast to share her story of filling a need in the market, building a strong personal brand, and her advice for building community and connection with your customers.

When everything on the outside feels OUT of control, I do my best to return to this: What can I control? What do I have power over? What can I ACTUALLY change? What habits, routines, or thoughts can I shift so that I don’t stay feeling stuck?

So while financials are a big, top-of-mind topic these days, let’s talk about financial habits that successful women possess. Because even though things may feel shaky and unpredictable in the economic climate, you DO have control over how you show up in your life and in this world. You have power over your approach to money, how you handle it, and your belief systems around it.

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.

Some business experts actually believe that the number 1 mistake new business owners make is NOT niching down enough, and therefore speaking to a massive, unspecific crowd rather than a highly fixed group of people who would BEST benefit from their product or service.

But I get it! When you’re starting out especially, you want to get as many clients or customers as possible. It feels scary to try and focus on a smaller group of people! Why would you want to exclude anyone? After all, customers equal profits which equals business health, right? Well, not exactly.

We’re going to explore this notion of digging into a niche and I believe this can set you apart and move you forward more than SO many other top business practices. If you’re not sure if you need to drive down into a niche, or aren’t certain how to find the right niche, or just want to inspect your biz a bit to be sure your niche is the right target for YOUR goals and trajectory, this is your episode.

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

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.

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.

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.
