So much has changed in my world since the last Ask Jenna and Drew Anything. We recorded it waaay back before Conley was born, and before we knew just how much that sweet little baby girl would shift everything we thought we knew about ourselves, about my business, and about how we do life together. We’ve talked about everything from our first kiss to how we balance our roles as husband and wife on the show, but now Drew and I are in a new season with our daughter as a centerpiece of our lives, and I wanted to share how we’re feeling and what we’ve learned since day one of parenthood. We’re answering your questions from Instagram and Facebook, and in true Kutcher form, we’re not holding back on this. I’m so excited to welcome my husband, Drew Kutcher, back to the show for another Ask Us Anything.

Becoming an entrepreneur has you writing a lot these days: Captions, content for your website, messages in emails… It’s a TON of work, and you don’t love being a copywriter. I get it. Here’s the thing -- Words are like the connective tissue of our brands. They make you easy to relate to, connect with, and understand on a deeper level, and they hold your brand together with a cohesive story across several platforms. See, our businesses aren't just the things we sell to other people. The WORDS that lift up our businesses shed light on more than just what we're selling. I’m sharing 5 EASY copy fixes that you can make TODAY. Tune in, then log off and put these tips into motion. Because your words matter and it’s time to put some confidence behind yours.

I strive every day to check my privilege. I want to DO BETTER as a white woman to celebrate the diversity in this community, and recognize where I can be a positive force for inclusion and representation of all of the wonderful ways we are all different.  I’m learning how to better speak about the tough topics. I’ve been SCARED to say the wrong things, so I’ve said nothing at all. But I know that there’s always room for growth and progress through having these tough conversations.  In this episode, I’m having a tough conversation. When I first spoke to Sarah Rose Summers, she was nearly halfway through her term as Miss USA 2018 and preparing for the Miss Universe competition in Thailand. I loved our conversation, but it never made it to air. You might remember the headlines that came out of the competition, the story about Miss USA and the comments she made about another contestant. We held off on airing her original episode, because my team and I knew we had an important responsibility and opportunity to face a tough topic head on and have a larger conversation about what happened and what we’ve all learned.  I am thrilled to welcome Sarah Rose Summers to Goal Digger today. Yes, we are two white women, stepping up to the mics to talk about diversity, race, and inclusion. I want to have a real, honest conversation that gets us all thinking of ways to do better, grow, be challenged, and show up after we’ve messed up.

Pick a lane, commit to it and follow through. That’s what I tell my students, because it’s true, consistency is one of the biggest factors of success. So, are you consistent with your email marketing? This is one of the KEY areas you need to dial it in. It’s the most reliable way to reach your audience. It should be on your short list of places you’re going to show up consistently.  Maybe you’ve listened to my advice and started a list but you’re struggling with the consistency part. Or maybe it’s been at the bottom of your to-do list for the last two years, or maybe you’re just not sure you’re doing it right… If you’re panicking, take a deep breath. I’ve got you -- today is a training in email lists, how to nurture your peeps, and serving your audience well and all you’ve gotta do is listen.

Today’s guest, Sazan Hendrix grew up the daughter of immigrant Middle Eastern parents. Her family valued hard work, but a career in the public spotlight was not encouraged. She faced cultural opposition and yet she pushed through to find her voice and identity, inspiring women across the globe to do the same. Sazan’s success is undeniable, right? A million followers, sold out products, a top-rated podcast. But she reached a point where the world saw her as one thing, and she felt totally out of alignment with that image. I loved hearing about Sazan’s life before she grew her business, and the changes she made when her sweet baby entered this world, so she could show up in a way that was totally true to who she is now. If you’ve ever felt conflicted and out of sync with the person you are inside and the one showing up in your squares on social media, this is your episode.

I’m sharing the EXACT steps we take to produce each episode of the Goal Digger Podcast. It’s all laid out in this episode! First off, let me say THANK YOU to you for listening and helping to grow this thing. Secondly, I have to tell you that there is so much that goes down behind the scenes to get to this, a finished episode streaming directly to you. I think of producing a podcast like building a pyramid. The very tip top is the final product -- the episode that we send out into the world and share with you. But before the capstone is put into place, there are many steps and pieces to build, and I am sharing our blueprint with you today! It just might shock ya!

Podcasting? There’s more to it than you’d think. I’m asked all the time: What do I need to start a podcast? What do you use to record? How do I get sponsors and make money? Should I outsource any step of the process? When I started the Goal Digger Podcast, I was balancing my computer on my lap in the car so the dogs wouldn’t bark and mess up the recording. Now? Well, there’s still no fancy studio... all of this happens from a spare closet at my house, with a simple mic setup, some Internet magic, and a whole lot of help from my team. I’ve learned so much from day one of starting a podcast. 18 million downloads later, my team and I have our podcast system down to a science that allows us to release FREE quality content two times a week just for you. In this episode, I’m answering those questions and more with a special guest, Tori Maloney. It’s another Goal Digger Coaching Session, and I’m at the mic to help work through some podcasting challenges with a Goal Digger like you.

Productivity is a tug of war and staying focused seems like a finicky art we’re all still trying to master. You know what you have to finish in a day to reach those goals, so why is it SO HARD to get it done? My guess -- because it comes from experience -- you need a makeover. I’m not talking hair or clothing or anything that, because you look GREAT... I mean your routine. If your productivity is lacking, you need to rework your current workflow habits to find a new groove to do your best work. I’m breaking down my “work smarter, not harder” tips that keep me focused and productive during the long days growing my business, from how to make a to do list that moves the needle to ways you can improve your space for optimal workflow. Hit “play” it’s time to get productive up in here.

There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who open their bank app on their phone without a single worry or anxiety, and those two squirm and cringe just thinking about it, or maybe even pretend the app isn’t there. Nearly 1 in 3 women in our country are discouraged about their finances with over 68% feeling overwhelmed by debt. But it doesn’t have to be that way. I am thrilled to welcome Tiffany Aliche, AKA The Budgetnista, to the podcast. We’re talking about the types of debt, how to get out of it from ANY starting point, when to invest in your business, and simple strategies to contribute to your savings that won’t leave you feeling cash strapped at the end of the month. She’s so much fun to talk to… I laughed and learned and now it’s your turn. Press play right now.  GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: https://jennakutcherblog.com/tiffany/ 
SE-Oh no, what does it all mean? Search Engine Optimization, the beast we all have to tame if we want our content to get seen on the world wide web. And best case scenario our content isn’t only SEEN, but it’s ranked high up on that Google results page and gets those coveted clicks. I’ve covered SEO on the show before but I’m seeing the question pop up more and more ‘cause it’s just one of those things that continues to challenge us, confuse us, and keep us from even starting. The Google algorithm judges our pages with over 200 different criteria -- Trying to master them all would be a full time job, and you’ve got bigger things to do. So what will actually move the needle? How can you rank ahead of your competitors? What’s worth the fuss? It’s all in this episode.  GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: https://jennakutcherblog.com/seorefresh/

I have been working on my video game. This was just the perfect time to hear this encouragement to work through the fear of getting it wrong and just continuing to show up.
