I threw a party for my book! Ok, not really… but Drew, the girls, and I *did* eat some cake. We had to celebrate somehow! Because my first book, New York Times bestseller How Are You, Really? turned one this week, and let me tell you: I am feeling alllll the feels. From hitting the top of the charts to selling over 100,000 copies, to over 1,000 reviews on Amazon – it’s been a wild ride and one I have LOVED.
It’s hard to explain just how powerful it is to have your story (in all its vulnerable glory) in hardcover for anyone in the world to read. And although it gives me a liiiiittle anxiety if I think about it too long, it also feels important… because our stories are our legacy.
In fact, I dive into this topic inside of my books pages. Of course, you can read the entire thing by getting your copy at howareyoureallybook.com… but for now, let’s celebrate the one year anniversary of How Are You, Really? by listening to Chapter 14: What Brooke Shields Doesn't know: Why Your Story Matters A Lot. Enjoy (preferably with cake, too)!

I always think about my life like a series of seasons, and each one brings a different main value to the forefront. In some seasons, money becomes the king, and we're willing to trade our time for it. You see this a lot when you're just starting up a business or when you're going through big changes like pivoting or launching something new. It's the harsh reality of the game.
But here's the thing: once you've achieved some level of success or financial freedom, you start to realize that time is the real treasure. You'd gladly give up some of that hard-earned money to get back those precious moments. I always think about it like this—time is a non-renewable resource. Once it's gone, you can't get it back. Money, on the other hand, you can always find a way to earn more.
As we go through the different seasons of life, let's keep in mind this profound truth about time and money. The goal is for us to find that sweet spot between chasing financial stability and preserving our most valuable asset—time.
This episode is to help you make conscious choices that align with that value–with 5 ways to trade money to get back time to do the things that matter most. Click play NOW to dive in!
Goal Diggers, you know how much I love to nerd out on all things mental health, self care, boundaries… all the things. If this kind of stuff is your jam too, you’re going to LOVE today’s guest!
Dr. Sasha Hamdani is a board-certified psychiatrist and ADHD clinical specialist. I first started following her about a year ago on Instagram (@thepsychdoctormd) when I was diagnosed with ADHD and wanted to learn more about it.
Her social media is SO educational; she effortlessly breaks down stigmas and provides accessible information about mental health. In January of this year, Dr. Hamdani published her first book, Self-Care for People with ADHD: 100+ Ways to Recharge, De-Stress, and Prioritize You! and I ate.it.up. It is FULL of actionable tips and, along with her company FocusGenie, which is an app (coming soon!) for focus, productivity, and ADHD education!
Dr. Hamdani has seriously changed my life for the better when it comes to understanding my diagnosis and I am SO excited to have her on the show today to discuss mental health and self care, so click play NOW to hear her insights!
It probably doesn’t surprise you that in 2023, building a loyal audience is critical to the success of any business. Most entrepreneurs and creators know that they need an audience to sell their offer… but what if I told you that BEFORE you even have a product or service to sell, you can – and should – start building your audience?
In fact, doing so can help you better understand your target market, build relationships with potential customers, establish your credibility, and ultimately, increase the chances of success when you do launch your product or service.
In this episode, I'm sharing some practical strategies for building an audience from scratch, even if you don't have anything to sell yet. If you’re someone who has a dream or a vision or you want to start your side hustle or you know that sommmeeday you want to leap into entrepreneurship, this is where you should start. And if you’re someone who’s struggling to sell your offer or grow your audience, this will also work for you.

What if you were just one post away from skyrocketing your sales and achieving your wildest dreams? I know, you’re like, “a girl can dream!”… but that is exactly what happened to my guest today. After she spent years taking the padding out of her sports bras and placing it in her tanks and bodysuits, she finally decided to design her first brami top.
Before she knew it, her first “brami” (bra + cami) design went viral on TikTok in 2020 and showed her what’s possible for her small business, Klassy Network.
That’s right: today I am chatting with Natalie Rogers Soto, an innovative fashion designer who has gained a reputation for her stylish brami tops. However, she’s not just a designer - she's also a savvy entrepreneur.
Today, she’s going to share with us how to use social media to sell inventory, what it’s like working with family, how she knew when it was time to level up, and so much more. I’m positive that you do NOT need to be in the fashion industry to learn from her advice, and you’ll love this conversation!
If you listen to the Goal Digger Podcast, there's a really good chance that you are a big dreamer. You are someone who is in pursuit of a very full, rich, and vibrant life, just like me.
But something that’s been on my mind recently has been the delicate balance between wanting more and being content with what I have. Have you ever wondered the same?
I've always been a high-achieving, ambitious person who wanted to go the extra mile and see what was possible for myself. And I’m *still* that person… Although recently, especially after having children, I’ve felt an immense peace in my life that I never, ever want to lose.
Now that I’ve experienced both, if I had to choose between ambition and contentment, I would choose contentment every single day of the week.
So, Goal Digger, this episode is a bit different than normal. I’m giving you a front row seat to my daily debate: should I scale bigger or shut it down? I may not have all the answers, but I do feel like I am at a beautiful place a decade into my entrepreneurial journey where I am genuinely finding joy every day in the work that I'm doing, but also in the life that I'm living. To me, that is the greatest gift that I could have ever been given, and I wish nothing but the same for you.

Are you feeling overwhelmed by a never-ending to-do list and worried you’re not making the most out of each day? I’ve been there.
In fact, I was JUST there–like, last week–because my ADHD brain deeeefinitely doesn’t love my constant tab-switching and Slack distractions from what I’m working on. (Who knew?!)
But recently, I felt empowered to prioritize tasks, eliminate distractions, and create a laser-focused action plan to help me reach my goals… all because of this conversation I had with Ashley Alderson.
Ashley, founder of The Boutique Hub, is a Midwestern mama who’s busy as a bee and had to create systems around how she could get her work done so she could get back to life. In our conversation, she gives us *loads* of helpful tips for small business owners to manage our time wisely, make the most out of each day, and embrace our inner CEO.

Say it with me: I REFUSE TO BE HELD BACK! Last year, I was diagnosed with ADHD: AKA, my brain works differently.
Some people might look at an ADHD diagnosis as a negative thing, but over the last year it has been so affirming and empowering for me. I refuse to be held back by it–thought that’s *not* to say it hasn’t come with its fair share of challenges.
Tune into today’s episode to hear a candid update of what I’ve learned so far, and how my diagnosis has changed my life AND business.

Calling all business owners: do you feel like you wear a gazillion hats in your business?!
I’ve never been the biggest hat-wearer (unless it’s floppy on a beach in Maui!), but I definitely find myself wearing a lot in my business as the CEO, creative director, podcast host, social media manager, bookkeeper, and a million other things.
No matter how many hats we wear, my guest on Goal Digger today juuuuust might have us beat.

We more than DOUBLED our best launch ever!!
I was about to go Live for my third webinar of the week when I said to a member of my team, “I can’t believe how relaxed I feel. This launch just FEELS different.”
*Different* was an understatement, of course… Because over the next few days, we completely blew our goals out of the water and served over 24,000 humans in the process. *mind blown!*
In the last few years, we haven't done a lot of really big live launches. It's been a while since we've done a REALLY big launch. The truth is, there are a lot of reasons why we haven't gone all out: pregnancy, postpartum, not having an office, and more.
But this time around, I was ready to go BIG!
In this episode of the Goal Digger Podcast, I’m spilling ALLLL off the tea about how we doubled our best launch when promoting The Pinterest Lab. So pour yourself a cup and learn from what worked (and what didn’t) to sell your next offer!

Think it’s time for a life inventory?
In this episode, I’m cracking open my book and deep-diving into an entire chapter with you! The first chapter of my first book, bestseller “How Are You, Really?”, introduces what I learned from “asking the quieter question” and the practice of doing your OWN life inventory! Start listening and let’s do the work together!
A few years ago, I decided to take the practice of ‘checking in on myself’ a heck of a lot more seriously. So much that it turned into, well, an entire book. A life inventory isn’t as intensive as it sounds either. Trust me — this process? It’s like sweet, sweet relief.

Do you ever feel left behind or think you’re so far from where you want to be? This feeling is normal, but how does it manifest in your self-talk? Is it belittling or comforting? For most of us, it’s that voice in our head that keeps saying we’re not enough — we’re never enough.
Goal Digger, it’s time to change this.
Negative self-talk ISN’T about being positive all the time. It IS, however, about finally showing yourself some well-deserved love and compassion… and the queen of saying it out loud is saying it loud and proud on Goal Digger today.
Vasavi Kumar has the sort of confidence you can FEEL and now she’s going to share how you can harness the power of confidence in your life. In this episode, she shares her insights on how self-talk, confidence, and self-trust are all interconnected to each other. She emphasizes that we’re often our harshest critics and our negative self-talk is something we would never say to others. So why is it that we’re so harsh to ourselves? At its core, it’s a lack of love of compassion for ourselves.
If you’re struggling with self-sabotage and negative self-talk, tune in to the episode NOW!
I get it: a life like mine can kind of look like a mystery from the outside. How do I have time to run a massive business, work with a team, be a parent, care for my health, and do *everything* else I do — in the same 24 hours?
In this episode, I’m not here to tell you how to PACK your days with every single thing and hack every hour and sacrifice your sanity in order to do it all. In fact, you might find I do far less than you imagine…
I've built a business that gives me a lot of opportunities for my days to ebb and flow, so I want you to know that as I am sharing a day in my current life. As always, take what serves you and leave the rest behind as you click play on this behind-the-scenes episode of the Goal Digger Podcast!

I have to be honest, this conversation is a true “pinch me” moment. I’m so honored to host a conversation with a true Hollywood icon who has captivated audiences for decades with his performances on the big screen.

But Matthew McConaughey is much more than just a talented performer. He's also a writer, a philosopher, and a seeker of truth and meaning. His recent book, Greenlights, has become a sensation, topping the bestseller lists and inspiring readers around the world with its honest, humorous, and insightful reflections on life, love, and the pursuit of happiness.
Through his writing and his acting, he has become a cultural icon, a symbol of resilience, authenticity, and creativity in a world that can often feel overwhelming and uncertain. There’s so much we can all learn from the legendary Matthew McConaughey in his interview on the Goal Digger Podcast!

Taking risks for our dreams is a concept that we talk about on the Goal Digger Podcast all the time, but it is something that can be difficult to put into practice. Kylie Low has been the producer behind the Goal Digger Podcast for over four years now, but in February 2023 Kylie came to me with an announcement I always expected to hear from her – She was ready to step down from producing this podcast to pursue her dreams and work on her own podcast full time.
In this final installment of the Jenna & Kylie series on the Goal Digger Podcast, Kylie shares the behind the scenes of her decision to leave her full-time job working for me to dive into her own projects. We reflect on the almost 5 years working together and what I’ve learned as the boss of someone who I always felt was more entrepreneurial than employee from day one. We get a little teary-eyed, but this conversation is a raw look at what happens when you realize it’s time to say goodbye.
