Update: 2019-01-1610


EMAIL LIST BUILDING BOOTCAMP, live on air. Our email list grew by over 30,000 last month alone. Take that in for a second, because even I am having a hard time wrapping my brain around that number.

It’s a big number, but I’m not surprised we got there with the email strategies I’ve worked and reworked over the last year. I’ve fine-tuned our approach to reach my most dedicated, raving fans with exclusive content that captures them right in their inbox.

Just last week I dove into the 101 of email list building (Episode 221) and today I want to share some of the fresh new ways we’re growing my email list by over 5,000 each and every week so that YOU can use these strategies in your business too! Get ready, we’re going in(box)!

224: This Type of Business Could Be Your Answer
PLEASE READ: After publishing this episode it was brought to our attention that there is a great deal of controversy and damaging claims surrounding the company featured in this interview, LuLaRoe. LuLaRoe is currently under investigation and facing multiple lawsuits. Our intent on this show was to shed light on a different type of business model and how to successfully approach marketing in this space. While we support the actionable tips shared by our guest and believe they can be valuable for our audience, we do not support LuLaRoe. We hope our listener's takeaways are not focused on the company featured but focused on: Knowing your “why” behind anything that you do and letting it shine in all you share. How to stand out among the others selling your same product or within your industry.  Researching different opportunities that can help you spend more time with your family and loved ones. Approaching relationships not with the sale in mind but in truly being able to connect with other human beings on a heart level. Using your business as a means to serve others needs and not a place to constantly sell. Preserving relationships by being sincere with every interaction. The importance of creating a personal experience for your customers versus creating mass appeal. As always, we recommend researching business opportunities before entering them. We are privileged to serve the Goal Digger audience each week with inspiring stories and know the platform we have built comes with enormous responsibility. We heard your concerns, we're sorry, and we're grateful to have your continued support of the show.   GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: 
205: Battle the Screen Addiction with These 5 Tips
The unsettling stats about screen time… The average smartphone uses their phone 2 hours 51 minutes per day. The average user clicks, swipes, and taps 2,617 times PER DAY. 47% of parents are concerned that their child is addicted to screens while, 89% of parents blame themselves. The amount of screen time per day — regardless of what the content is — goes hand in hand with the higher instances of depression. Ever since smartphones came on the scene, they have become a constant presence in BOTH our professional and our personal lives. However, this constant sensory overload and overwhelm of information makes our thoughts scattered, impacts our feelings, and ultimately, shapes our LIVES. As a business woman, I want my work to be focused and intentional. From a personal perspective, I want to be present in my life. I want to really LIVE and not just refresh my feed every few minutes. I understand how difficult it can be to break our phone and screen habits, which is exactly why I wanted to make this episode full of TANGIBLE tips, tricks, and methods that will ensure that you can put the phone down, and keep your eyes up. Good news is you don’t need to look at your screen to listen to today’s episode... Well, maybe for a minute. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES:

194: Why "No" Isn't a Negative Word with Iskra Lawrence
Goal Diggers, I have been dying to have this guest on the show since the very beginning. She is bold, authentic, beautiful, brilliant, and today she is HERE! Goal Diggers, you probably already know and adore her, but officially MEET Iskra Lawrence! Iskra is a British model and a champion for #EveryBODYisBeautiful, body diversity and self-care. Iskra was told she was both “too big” for straight-size modeling and “not big enough” for plus-size modeling… but she has forged her own way. Now she is committed to reshaping the image of women in the media. As a fellow Aerie #AerieREAL Role Model I have joined forces with Iskra to promote unretouched intimates, loungewear and swim campaigns to speak about body positivism. Iskra also serves as a brand ambassador for the National Eating Disorders Association, created the NEDA Inspires Award, and is working to generate awareness and support for individuals and families affected by eating disorders. Safe to say this woman has made a name for herself in an industry where she was told NO… A lot. In this episode, Iskra will teach us how to carve our own path, find confidence during our darkest days, and continue on OUR path -- even when the world tells us no. Goal Diggers, don’t miss Iskra.

192: Your Story Matters, Here's How to Own It
Lucia Pador is a super woman. You may know her from her work at Utterly Engaged, or more recently, her transition into helping others tell their stories and tell them well. Lucia is in my mastermind this year, and I have been AMAZED at how she can curate, visually story-tell, and manage Utterly Engaged flawlessly, while also working on her newest project which will help entrepreneurs tell their own story and leave a true legacy. Lucia is a daughter of immigrant parents who escaped a Communist war-torn country, moving from one refugee camp to another, to finally planting their roots in Southern California and building a beautiful life and business. After 30+ years of providing for their family through his art, Lucia’s father unexpectedly passed away. It was not until after he left this world did she finally see first hand how much of legacy he left behind. Without social media, she was blown away by the impact his art left behind that had spread across continents and oceans. Remembering what she learned from him, and combining her love for storytelling, social media, design and modern marketing, she is on a mission to help others spread their message, art, and creations through the most impactful and meaningful way. I know a lot of entrepreneurs love what they do, but struggle finding clarity, direction, and the know-how to share their message and stand out. I am lucky to have to have THE expert, Lucia Pador to teach us not only how to market ourselves well but to own our stories (even the messy parts!)

191: How I Made $218,000 on Shopify in ONE Year
It’s been a little over a year since I opened my online shop: Shop Jenna Kutcher. It’s been a crazy, beautiful addition to my business and it’s been something I’ve been digging into as we’ve navigated this season of life because having an online digital store has been an incredible addition to my business for a few big reasons. I love having our shop because: 1. I have created resources that have helped me that are now available for everyone to enjoy and use. Why hide all the templates and tools I had built for my business that had attributed to my success? It’s been awesome to say: are you struggling with xyz? I have a resource for this exact thing. 2. It gives me the chance to reach my people with offers that are more accessible for those not ready to take a course or not in a financial place to purchase a full course or system. I love being able to sell well priced products that can help change businesses and give people the tools that they might not be able to purchase elsewhere. 3. It is 90% automated and digital which means we can serve our clients quickly, it’s open and available all the time, and most of it is run through automation which means less work on our part to get people what they need and to deliver a good client experience without having to be attached to every single sale. Have you thought about starting a Shopify shop? Today I am going to walk you through how I've made over $218,000 in just ONE year. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM:    SHOWNOTES:

188: Real Talk: How to Stand Up For What You Believe In
I want to talk about it. The messy stuff, the embarrassing, the humiliating, the shameful… I want to talk about it. But it’s not always easy. You see, there are some BIG topics out there: body shaming, discrimination, inequality, war, oppression, shame, guilt…. But they aren’t always easy to address. Insert: today’s guest. Alex LaRosa is a plus size model, blogger, and self love advocate based in Los Angeles… This Cali native is ready to share her message of self acceptance and personal growth. She has two major goals: to help other women become the most powerful version of themselves and to see these women represented in fashion. The launch of Visibly Plus Size is a result of Alex's unwavering belief that all different types of women (no matter their size, age, or the color of their skin) benefit from seeing images that represent them in the media. Aside from her brilliant business and insane modelling skills, what also captured my eye is the way that Alex speaks about topics that matter. She recently caught my eye in an instagram comment section where there was a heated debate, and her responses were 1) respectful, but also informative and persuasive. I was so captivated by how this woman spoke up for what she believed that I knew I had to have her on the show. Goal Diggers, without any further adieu, welcome Alex Larosa!
