741: What I Wish Everyone Knew About Breaking Intergenerational Trauma

We all know that when a physical wound is left unhealed, it continues to cause pain and can infect the whole body. But have you ever considered that when emotions are left unhealed, they cause harm, too? Healing this intergenerational trauma requires a holistic approach that has so far been absent from the field of psychology… Until Dr. Mariel Buqué: a Columbia University–trained trauma-informed psychologist, professor, and sound bath meditation healer.  In this conversation, we discuss how we can start breaking cycles through tangible therapeutic practices, and learn to pass down strength instead of pain to future generations. This is such a powerful conversation and I truly believe the work that Dr. Buqué is doing is extremely valuable for people in all walks of life.

Do you ever find yourself in a constant pursuit of the "next big thing"? Often as marketers, we’re tempted to dream up more more more, especially when setting goals for the new year.

724: Unpopular Opinion: You Don’t Need More Offers

We’ve all heard the saying, “more is more,” especially in the business world. You know what they say… If you want to succeed, you need more offers, more products, more services, and more revenue streams. But what if I told you that this widely held belief might be misguided?

Jada Pinkett Smith was living what many would view as a fairy-tale of Hollywood success. But appearances can be deceiving… Today on the Goal Digger Podcast we talk about what itv took to find and heal herself from the depths of depression as an ambitious mom and wife in the media spotlight.

By the end of this conversation, you’ll have a better understanding of who Jada is, and you’ll have learned how to embrace your most lovable qualities, discover who you really are, and claim the title worthy for yourself.  GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER SHOW NOTES: https://www.jennakutcherblog.com/jadapinkettsmith   LISTEN TO THE THIS IS SMALL BUSINESS PODCAST: https://www.smallbusiness.amazon/podcasts THIS PODCAST IS SPONSORED BY BETTERHELP.

713: Is “Balance” A Myth? This Startup Founder Thinks So

I’ve got news for you: if you’re digging an ambitious goal of building a hugely successful business and brand, it won’t always be possible to achieve the perfect balance between work and life, hustle and rest. Most founders would agree that running a business is like a series of sprints and cool downs… you’re constantly exhausted, running at peak intensity, putting out fires… and then there are the rare quiet periods or ‘lulls’ where you can finally catch a breath.  In fact, some may even say that ‘balance’ can’t possibly exist during the first few years of entrepreneurship! Nicole Gibbons, the founder of next generation paint brand Clare, has experienced them all… from peak productivity to burnout; from constantly having to make difficult tradeoffs to leaning into what this season of life is bringing her.  In our conversation, Nicole is sharing her perspective on why she believes balance is a myth (and why that’s okay), plus her tactic of “rebalancing” on a regular basis in order to thrive during those intense times and the reality of what it’s really like to be funded by venture capital. It’s such a treat to get to chat with her about the ebbs and flows of business, different seasons of life, different styles of entrepreneurship and how it all affects our lives.

709: What to Do When You Realize The Dream Really Wasn’t THE Dream

Have you ever thought about pivoting your career, but then thought better of it because you currently have what you had always dreamed of? My guest today can relate all too well… but during the pandemic, she did the unthinkable and walked away from her DREAM job only to find even more success on the other side. In only 3 years, Rebecca Zung went from being a Top 1% attorney in the country - to a traumatic experience as an entrepreneur with a narcissistic business partner - to becoming an almost 8 figure digital entrepreneur.

684: How I’ve Built An Unmatched Team Culture

It’s been WAYYYYY too long since I’ve gotten to hug my teammates in person, but all of that changed just a few weeks ago when I flew myself and 12 of my employees and contractors out to Scottsdale, Arizona for some much-needed rest and relaxation. If you didn’t know, our small-but-mighty team is entirely remote, and all of the powerhouse women on team JK own their role from all over the country (and even Canada!). After a few (very long) years of not being able to do a team retreat thanks to the entire world shutting down, a few babies being born, and other life transitions, we were finally able to go on a team retreat and spend some much-needed time together as a team!   When I got back, I asked YOU for your questions about cultivating an amazing team culture... And boy, did you deliver! I’m so excited to dive into YOUR questions in this special Q+A episode. Whether you’re thinking about hiring your first VA or are building a small-but-mighty team of your own, I hope my questions to these answers will meet you wherever you are in your journey.

676: 5 Easy Ways to Trade Money to Get Back Time

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.

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.

656: How to Make Friends When You’re a Busy (and Isolated) Entrepreneur

One of my goals is to really foster friendships in different ways this year. It's one of those things that the more that I have conversations about it, the more that I feel like there's so much commonality among us, and especially people who are entrepreneurial or who find themselves working from home, I think there are a lot of common threads of ways that we might be feeling or struggles we might be having, or situations we might find ourselves in that we don't often get to talk to because we don't have the friends to talk about this topic with. So this episode is all about making friends as an adult – the who, the where, and the how (even the dating apps that could actually help you connect with new pals!)  GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES

I was recently with a ton of other leaders in our industry and the topic of building a team came up a lot and I was shocked at how complicated some of the processes were around hiring. I’m not knocking them, but they just aren’t for me. From getting agents to help find candidates to having 5 part interviews or massive requirements, it just isn’t how I do things. People ask all of the time if we’re hiring and 99% of the time the answer is no, but we recently WERE hiring and we were able to hire two incredible new team members in under a week using our method of hiring – with a twist.  GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES

622: I Tried Biohacking and The Results Might Surprise You

This has been one of the most requested topics ever. I did a podcast episode a little while back all about my own health journey, where I referenced that I have gotten very much into biohacking and am very curious about it because it's become a part of our lives. And I got so many DMs and requests from you guys to record this episode, so I am super excited to dive into the topic of biohacking. Biohacking is also known as human augmentation, which sounds kind of creepy or like human enhancement. It's kind of this do-it-yourself biology aimed at improving your performance, your health, and your well-being through strategic interventions. For many biohackers, biohacking in general consists of just making small incremental diet or lifestyle changes to make small improvements in your health and well-being, and that has been a huge piece on my own health. And so today is all about biohacking, coming from someone who knew nothing about this a year ago, who is not a doctor who will probably get things wrong, but who has experienced the benefits of biohacking in big ways over the last year. I'm going to walk through 14 things that I've done or tried in the last year and I'll share about if I've enjoyed them, if I'm still doing them or if it wasn't for me. Alright, let's dive on in.

620: How to Leverage Where You Are to Get to Where You're Going

Usually once a month I sit down with my podcast producer, Kylie, and she grills me on a topic. But Miss Kylie is busy snuggling her sweet little baby, so I asked Brooklyn to come on. Brooklyn is an incredible member of my team who has been with me for four whole years, she is the keeper and the writer of all the words inside of the brand. Today's topic is actually one I'm very excited about because I don't know if you're like me, but around this time, each year as we inch closer to the new year, I feel this simultaneous pull and tug of, who do I want to be coming the next year? And what do I wanna accomplish? And what do I need to wrap up in order to make this year great? And who am I going to turn into? And it's this beautiful, beautiful pressure that we sometimes put on ourselves or the world puts on us, or the changing calendars bring to us of wanting to move in a new direction. However, today's topic is how to leverage where you're at to get to where you wanna go instead of abandoning all the things that have gotten you here.

619: How to Get Clear on What ‘Having It All’ Means for You

Having a ‘dream’ or vision for your life can look great on paper, but in practice, more often than not, can start to feel overwhelming. How is someone supposed to actually juggle a career alongside, well, anything else? Time for adventure, family, community, rest, creativity? All signs start pointing to burnout. And I’m passionate about showing you that the ‘having it all’ burnout only happens when we let other people define it for us. That’s why I wanted to sit down with my friend and truly brilliant leader, Lewis Howes, on his podcast School of Greatness!  This conversation felt so perfectly timed. If you’re not already a student of the School of Greatness, then make sure you subscribe and listen in — my takeaways are always profoundly simple and super applicable. As I listened to this episode on his show, I found myself wanting to make sure YOU heard these words. We dive into why it’s SO important to invest in yourself, and what it really looks like to overcome the doubt and fear that holds us back from doing that wholeheartedly. The themes and messages here are truly meant for you, Goal Diggers, so I am grateful that Lewis let me share this conversation here with you, too!  GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: jennakutcherblog.com/jennawithlewis

618: How an Infomercial Unexpectedly Taught Me These Marketing Strategies

I can't believe I'm recording an episode talking about an infomercial, but here we are. I actually had an entirely different episode planned for today, I was going to record an episode all about boundaries, but I actually pivoted because I had a really interesting encounter this morning. I went to get my nails done, and while I was sitting there with dead headphones and nothing to do but watch the tv, an infomercial for Nutri Sealers caught my eye. I had the pleasure of watching this infomercial for about 45 minutes, and I actually learned a lot from it. I was so intrigued and I kind of asked myself like, what are they getting right? Because I am not a Nutri Sealer customer yet, however, I want to talk about how the infomercial almost made me a customer.  So today's episode is going to be about the five things that I learned from watching an infomercial that we can all apply to our marketing strategy today.

617: Curious about Cryptocurrency? Hit Play Now!

Bitcoin had a bad week — like a really bad one. And if you’re out of the know or don’t understand that world, you’re not alone, we don’t really get it either. In fact, the timing of this release feels a little uncanny as headlines are hitting on the topic (and we still don’t understand it all!) We recorded this episode with Brit a few months ago (to help prep for our producer’s maternity leave!) and so while the Bitcoin world is experiencing interruptions, the content inside of this show helps dissect what this world is and if it’s something you might want to explore. Cryptocurrency. What’s your first thought when you hear that word? Maybe you’re already an investor and you know the potential in this growing space. Maybe you have a healthy curiosity but reasonable skepticism about it. For a time, I definitely felt like the world of crypto and NFTs and Web3 was rife with gatekeepers wanting to keep women and non-binary people on the outside... But leave it to serial entrepreneur Brit Morin to bust down those gates and wave in a community of people to learn all about how to invest and benefit from an industry that will reach an estimated value of $10 trillion in the next five years. You might know Brit Morin from her lifestyle and education company Brit + Co, but in this conversation, we’re talking about her endeavors in the Web3 and cryptocurrency arena. She will demystify the terms and concepts you need to know to get started, why it’s not too late to dive into the space, how people are making money with crypto, and some advice as you get started or grow your portfolio in the world of Web3.  GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: jennakutcherblog.com/britmorin

616: Simplifying Your Marketing To-Do List: Here’s Where to Focus First

Marketing is confusing and overwhelming because we listen to ALL of the things we should be doing and chances are, if you’re just starting out – or even if you’re established, you’re walking around with some guilt or shame in feeling like you KNOW what you need to do but you either don’t know HOW to do it or don’t have the bandwidth to do it all.  Let me take you back over a decade to one of my business courses in college where they taught us the four P's: product, price, place, and promotion. I literally remember learning about these “p’s” sitting next to Drew in a course and when I think about knowing how and where to market your business, it’s important we take these four p’s into account.  I’m going to let you establish your product and price – I have a few good episodes on pricing strategies, and we’re going to focus on place and promotion in today’s episode!

When actress Shay Mitchell launched her travel brand BÉIS in 2018, travel was not laden with the nuanced challenges it is today in a recovering pandemic world. When 2020 hit, President of BÉIS Adeela Hussain Johnson worked side by side with Shay to navigate the big upheaval in their space – if people weren’t traveling, if people couldn’t travel, what did the business need to do to adapt? It’s a question they answered together, and answered really, really well. From idea conception to launching, building and running BÉIS, Adeela and the small but growing team at BÉIS have shifted, modified, and adapted their products, content marketing, and strategies to almost pandemic-proof the brand, despite its foundation in the travel space.  Adeela is here to talk about content marketing and the strategies you can use in your own business, whether you’re a product- or service-based brand, as well as the changing role of influencers and how your brand can carve out a niche in a crowded market, even if you’re not a big celeb.

612: A Website Refresh for When You’re Short on Time

About once a year, I get the pull to do a website overhaul — or at the very least, a detailed refresh. I feel like it’s important to evaluate our marketing materials regularly and make sure they all still fit our current vibe, style, and business trajectory. This year, I wanted my website to match the energy I’m feeling after welcoming our second daughter last year and launching my book this year: bright, fun, free. Between the book, the baby, and the new house, this year was a big one, so we asked ourselves: How do we freshen up my home on the web to reflect all this newness? In this episode, I’ll take you through my website refresh process and convince you to take another look at your own website to ensure your followers are landing somewhere that aligns with who and where you are currently.

610: How to Leverage a Podcast to Market and Sell

For years, I avoided being interviewed on other podcasts — not because I didn’t want to or had anything against going on other podcasts, but simply because I was in a season of saying “no” to most speaking engagements, including most podcast interviews. I was busy growing my family, my business, and staying in my own lane with my podcast. But things changed this year when I released my first book, “How Are You, Really?” and I got the urge to get back in front of the mic for shows other than just my own. And you know what? It was absolutely mind-blowing (and opening) how transformative it was to step onto other people’s platforms, share my story in their spaces, and gain that sort of brand new exposure to their audiences. I’d avoided it for so long, but meanwhile, it ended up being one of the biggest propellers for getting the word about my book out there to so many new people I wouldn’t have otherwise been exposed to!   GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: jennakutcherblog.com/leverage

Pivoting is something I know a lot about – some of my best career moves started with a desire to pivot, to switch it up, to pursue a new direction toward the life and business I really wanted.

608: A Vulnerable Look Inside My Health Journey and Why It’s Stuck

When I reflect on my personal health journey, I realize it has impacted my work on a deep, deep level, probably on a deeper level than any of the strategies and systems that I've utilized in recent years. I'm a pretty open book, I've talked about my health journey on this show, but today is this attempt to dive deeper into what I've been doing, how I've been feeling, and even more importantly, how it's impacted my work and why I think things finally stuck this time. I know I'm not unique in this human experience of wanting to change something in my life, whether it's my circumstance, my career, relationships, whatever that is, and not being confident enough to follow through or not getting the results that I wanted and just giving up. I think what's super interesting about this topic, especially when it comes to my health journey, is that I'm not one month in or 60 days or 90 days, I've been really focused on this for the entire year, and this is the first time that I've actually stuck to something.

What would it sound like if someone hit record on a conversation between you and a close friend over a cup of coffee (or glass of wine or matcha or a margarita, depending on your preference)? I was recently in California and had the opportunity to actually sit side by side with my friend Candice Kumai, a classically trained chef, former line cook, former TV host, former-model-turned journalist, and now a podcaster herself and best-selling author of seven books.  Listening back, it felt like someone had hit record on a heart to heart between two pals at transitional phases of their lives, and captured all the candid feelings and giggles and tears that come from a good, honest, vulnerable chat. Sitting in her beautiful Los Angeles home over a cup of a specialty matcha, we poured into each other on the topics of success, why women can be so hard on themselves, the struggle to see yourself through the eyes of people who love you, and so much more.

The path to each individual’s version of success is not a straight one. There are loops and dips and swirls and backtracks.

My guest for this episode has learned to embrace the roller coaster ride towards her successes, but it didn’t always come easy.

You might be standing in the same spot I was years ago, wondering if creating a digital course could truly help you achieve your own version of success, regardless of what the economy is doing around you. Or maybe you’re a full-time parent but you have a passion that you put on hold and now you’re wondering if it’s time to pursue it. Maybe you feel stuck, waiting for answers to your course questions so you can feel confident diving in without hesitation.  My dear friend and digital course creation expert Amy Porterfield is back once again to talk about digital courses, because neither of us want those questions to stop you in your tracks and keep you from the success that could unfold from your decision to say “yes” to creating an online course.

594: 12 Boundaries I’ve Implemented in Work & Life to Protect My Peace

In the last few years I’ve led with one main goal: to do anything and everything to protect my peace. Why? Because success to me means feeling at peace in my life and work. Waking up and not feeling anxious or stressed but being on this peaceful pursuit. So while I absolutely still have goals for my business, I more so have a vision for what I want my LIFE to be – not just what I want it to look like but how I want it to feel.  In this episode, I’m sharing 12 personal boundaries I’ve set up for myself that you are more than welcome to borrow in order to protect your own peace, whatever that looks like to you.

One thing that I've realized in my journey is that the way that we feel in our bodies affects how we show up in every aspect of our lives, whether it is our relationships, career, parenthood, or friendships.

Instead, I’ve pulled together 8 resources that will cover your marketing, invoicing, branding, graphics, systems, and legalities to get your business idea off the ground this month for less than $1500.  Actually, the total cost comes in under $1100 (with some wiggle room). It isn’t a small chunk of money by any means, but it’s definitely more palatable than coughing up $5000 before ever knowing what your profitability might be.

563: SPEAK: The 5 Pillars That Will Transform How You Live

Before she became a Peloton instructor, motivational speaker, founder, and author, Tunde Oyeneyin had a lucrative beauty career. She left it behind to pursue the world of fitness as a Peloton instructor, though it wasn’t overnight success for Tunde. She didn’t nail her first Peloton audition… But Tunde didn’t give up.  SPEAK is an acronym that guides Tunde’s life and pushes her forward and upward through challenges and setbacks, always reaching for her best, most purpose-filled life. In this conversation, we talk about her career evolution, building confidence, and the five words that continue to guide her (and will guide you) to live her best life.

562: Screw Balance, This is the New Goal

The undertones of “achieving balance” are more associated with perfection than reaching a realistic goal that gives us full, impactful, purpose driven lives. While the intention may have been good, the execution woke up something else in us. It’s like we all forgot that balance is a moment, not a lifetime. Let’s talk about this newer word going around, and in my opinion, a word that reaches far beyond the buzz of a buzzword and can actually be used throughout a lifetime— “integration.” What is integration, how does it beat balance, and what does it look like in our own lives?

561: The Crucial Difference Between Founder and CEO

Nothing bad happens when women make more money. There’s nothing wrong with a woman building a business that scales her income and impact, despite what society makes us feel about wealth and earning more money than our male counterparts. Suneera Madhani shouts it from the rooftops to remind women that aspirations as female founders are valid and absolutely possible. So together, we’re digging into one of my favorite acronyms… CEO.  What’s the difference between a business owner or a founder and a CEO? How can you up-level your business and make more money, catapulting you into the 2% club with a million dollars in revenue? How can you overcome your fears of stepping into the leadership role you deserve to claim?  PRE-ORDER MY FIRST BOOK: jennakutcher.com/book   GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: jennakutcherblog.com/ceoschool

Did you know that I used to say I wasn’t going to have kids? Before I inadvertently write 10k words on the whole story here (I already did this in my book!) I decided I wanted to *talk* with you about it. Will you join me for a chat? My podcast producer, Kylie, is helping me walk through the process of how I went from hiding my true desires (and fear) or parenthood behind a thin career veil… to finally allowing those desires to bleed through.  Now, I know this is definitely not everyone’s roadmap, but I do think it’s easy to want something bad enough that we try and teach ourselves to not want it— maybe even to despise it — just so we don’t get hurt. I hid a part of me behind my career, and turns out you can’t hide from yourself for long! And for that, I am so, SO grateful. Can’t wait to share more about these life lessons with you.

552: Think You Need to Reinvent Yourself? Listen to This

What does it mean to reinvent yourself? Though you might be quick to assume you need to scrap everything and start with a blank slate, I encourage you to pause and consider this: The best power of reinvention lies in leveraging everything you’ve ever done – the good, the bad, the ugly, the successes and failures. Reinvention literally taps into the very real (and often unappreciated and unarticulated) skills, insights and expertise you have gained along the way. So you don’t need to try to create a new personality from scratch to reinvent yourself.   In this episode, we’re covering the concept of reinvention – what it means, how to visualize and identify the new evolving version of you, and aligning your priorities to truly step into the reinvented version of you.   PRE-ORDER MY FIRST BOOK: jennakutcher.com/book GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: jennakutcherblog.com/reinvent

That’s the question Lori Harder asked herself before launching a brand new business in a field she had zero experience.  Lori made the big decision to only take on women investors to fund her new dream, and I’m so excited for her to share the vision and mission behind it all. This is a conversation about pivoting, jumping into something new and believing you can achieve it.  GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: jennakutcherblog.com/loriharder

532: 7 Challenging Business Scenarios and How to Handle Them

It’s 2022 -- new year, new goals, maybe a new business? So many entrepreneurs (including us) are planners, but there’s really just one thing you can plan on as an entrepreneur -- uncertainty. The challenges you might face as we dive into a whole new year of business are unpredictable. But even though we can’t predict what challenges this year may bring, we can prepare by learning from the challenges other entrepreneurs have faced before us.  Kylie compiled a list of some of the most common challenging business scenarios facing entrepreneurs, and we’re going to play a game of “What Would Jenna Do?” GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: jennakutcherblog.com/bizscenarios

The truth is, I’ve had this folder in my Gmail titled: “If I Write a Book” for the last five years. Becoming an author would naturally come up in conversations here and there, and while the idea was certainly flattering, it never truly inspired me into action. It was always one of those “Maybe someday” ideas where I wasn’t totally convinced that someday would actually arrive. But then, a massage and a mouse changed everything. This is my big official announcement: I WROTE A BOOK. Hard to believe I’m saying those words after so many years of resisting the idea.
