301: 5 Things You Need To Do on Your LinkedIn Profile Right Now
Confession time: There’s one major platform on the internet I’m not using to its max potential.  I’ve got Instagram down to a science, a healthy and effective strategy on Facebook… But there’s still one big one that eludes me and that platform is LINKEDIN.  Like my profile is there, I have a really old picture, a few notes about me… But that’s it. So like I always do when I want to learn and grow new skills and knowledge, I’m turning to an expert.  Jena Viviano is an ex-Wall Streeter turned career coach and...

300: How to Hit Your Profit Goals Through Price Setting
How much do you cost? One of the most challenging parts of running a business, especially in the beginning, is putting a price value that's fair, smart, not to mention profitable on the products and services we offer.  I invite you to hit play on this episode if you’re wondering if your price is right -- Bob Barker style -- that it's not too high and pushing potential customers away, or too low and practically giving away your resources for a steal.  Should your price reflect the late nights? Hours of dream...

299: Have a College Degree but It's Not Your Passion? Listen to this.
What do you want to be when you grow up?  How did you answer that question growing up? It can be anxiety inducing when you’re multi-passionate or when you haven’t quite figured out what your true purpose is. It can be an even worse question when you’re already on one path and realize, maybe this isn’t my thing? Shea McGee is part of the husband and wife team behind Studio McGee, an interior design firm known across the country for a bright and clean aesthetic. But Shea didn’t start there. In fact, she earne...


298: The Secret to Rest and Why It'll Make Your Business Better
This is your permission to take a day off. Actually, it’s more like an order. Because if I know anything about you, the thought of waking up tomorrow and turning off your phone, muting your email, and tucking your laptop away in your desk makes you feel anxious and frazzled.  But I want to help you take a day off without those feelings. I want a day off to make you feel elated and free! You can't -- and shouldn't -- expect yourself to be connected to work and even social media all day every day and still ma...

297: The CEO Mindset Hacks She Used to Build an Empire
Let’s play a game of word association. Ready? The word is CEO. What do you think of? I used to think of an old white man sitting in a boardroom leading a meeting. Let me tell ya, that vision has changed big time. It looks like a strong woman, a woman with vision, creating a business that serves others and creates a life she has always dreamed of living. I see her when I look in the mirror.  Claiming that CEO title and seeing yourself when you think of those three letters isn’t easy. You might still think of...

296: Could You Make Money with Affiliate Selling?
Would you believe me if I told you that you can make money selling stuff that you didn’t even create, test, or fund? It’s true! That's the name of the game with affiliate marketing, and spoiler alert, you don't need a Kylie Jenner level following to be successful at it. Think about this… How often do you recommend your hairstylist, your favorite hotel, that skincare product that changed your life, or another product or service that you adore to your friends or following online? We all do it to some extent, ...


295: No One Told Us THIS About Being a Working Mom
No one told us THIS about motherhood… and we’re talking about it mama to mama, CEO to CEO. Motherhood changes your drive and focus, it alters the way you see things that were once priorities, it shifts your flow in life and business, it makes other people view you through a new lense, too…  Katrina Scott knows what it’s like to navigate motherhood as a business owner, lifestyle celebrity, and public figure. Katrina Scott is the co-founder of Tone It Up -- If you’re into fitness and have ever been on the int...

294: One Big Clue That You're Ready to Outsource and How to Start
The thought of doing THIS when I was just starting out made me woozy.  Why is it so scary to hand off a piece of your business to someone else? When you're the one running the show, it can feel impossible to hand over even a little bit of the reigns. It could be a time thing (who has the TIME to hire and train someone?) or it could be a trust thing… Like who could actually do the thing just as good as you? I get it because I've felt ALL of these emotions. I was gripping onto my business with white knuckles ...

ARE YOU INTELLIGENT? READ ON.  Feelings and Emotions? What’s the big diff? We use the terms interchangeably but understanding the difference between the two, and knowing how our emotions impact our lives, inform our decisions, and lead our success, isn’t innate knowledge we’re born with…we’ve gotta learn. What is emotional intelligence? Can it be measured? Should it be measured? And if it’s measured, what can we do with that metric?

289: The First Course I Ever Took and What It Did For My Business
The FIRST online course I ever paid for back in 2015 and the crazy thing that happened next… ya ready?   Before all of *this* I was just a wedding photographer, trading time for money, being a weekend warrior, with hardly anyone on my email list trying to figure out how to be happy, how to create a business that could run while I rested, and how to be successful working for myself in my PJs. And then I threw my credit card at the course after sitting in on a webinar and I committed myself fully to the progr...

288: How to Figure Out Anything as a Multi-Passionate Entrepreneur with Marie Forleo
What’s that three word phrase that kicks off a race? READY? Set. GO! It makes a few assumptions: That you have to be READY before you can set yourself up to GO. It might make sense for a foot-race, but otherwise, it’s totally wrong. If we all waited for when we were ready to go anywhere or do anything, we’d never begin. You need to start before you are ready. That’s what Marie Forleo did. Chances are if you’re in the online business space, you’ve heard of B-School and it’s incredible creator, Marie Forleo. ...

287: How to Change Your Sales Mindset to Make More Money
Raise your hand if you love selling. Anyone? Anyone? No? I see way more people with their hands way down. I get it. We’ve all been sold to in a way that feels sleazy, pushy, and manipulative and we don’t want to be those people.  As consumers we’re naturally inclined to be skeptical of whatever product or service is being peddled. That mindset block transferred over to me as an entrepreneur, and it took some careful undoing to finally realize that I can sell differently. And you can, too. This episode will ...


286: How-to Launch with What Ya Got
BAD ADVICE: Don’t even THINK about launching until you have [insert arbitrary number here] subscribers on your email list. GREAT ADVICE: There is no minimum number. You can have a successful launch with a small list. You just need a strategy. Tarzan Kay is here to help. She argues that you don’t need a BIG email list, you need a mindset shift and a new approach that will turn your list, at any size, into a money-maker. It’s not a one-and-done process, but a launch of any kind is the most crucial phase of th...

Relationship Status: It’s Complicated I’m talking about my relationship with money. Ever wonder how the heck you find stability as an entrepreneur when it comes to getting paid?

284: How to Stop Comparison Fatigue (without Quitting Instagram)
What does she have that I don’t have? You ever ask yourself that while scrolling your Instagram feed? Raise your hand if you’ve ever compared yourself to someone you saw on social media! Hi, I see you there. Comparison wears us down and stomps on our gifts as if we bring absolutely nothing worthy to the table. You might be tempted to chuck your phone right out the nearest window (trust me, I’ve been there) but hold up. Not until you press play on this episode.  You can redirect that instinct to compare and ...


283: Listen If You’re Lonely: Adult Friendships Are Hard
Are you lonely? Making and maintaining friendships as an adult can be HARD. My friends aren't just a group of ladies to grab a glass of wine and gossip with -- these women are the people who know my soul, want to hear about my heartaches, and ignite some of the deepest belly laughter and go-get-em inspiration ever. But finding friends, building these life-giving relationships that fill me up instead of wearing me down? THAT IS HARD. Making friends as an adult is not easy. Can you relate? If you've been feel...

281: A New Strategy for Emails That Engage and Actually Get Read
GUESS: 58% of humans do THIS first thing in the morning. If you’re one of the 42-percent who probably use the bathroom first thing, good for you. Because the majority of the population is laying in bed, holding it, while they CHECK THEIR EMAIL. People want to see what they missed and email is a direct tie to whatever they’ve got going on in their world. Email marketing is my favorite topic, and I want you to appreciate the possibilities your list holds. This isn’t a list-building lecture though… I’ll teach ...


280: Why Storytelling Will Increase Your Sales
If your products could speak, what stories would they tell? Ali Hynek is the CEO and founder of Nena & Co. It began with an appreciation for her Guatemalan culture and exploring the country with her mother, learning about the beautiful handwoven textiles and the people who create them.

278: What Makes a Good Pitch (and a Very Bad One)
Composing the perfect pitch is an art.  You have to know yourself, your business, or your offer SO well, and then be able to extract the information that is most important to the person or business you’re pitching. The perfect pitch is engaging and informative, and it inspires interest or better yet, action.  Today’s guest knows what makes a great pitch. Jules Pieri gets thousands of pitches a day as the Co-Founder and CEO of the product launch platform called The Grommet. Do products like FitBit, OtterBox,...


277: The Secret to Overcoming Imposter Syndrome
Imposter syndrome is feeling out of place in the scenes you’ve dreamed up for yourself. It’s reaching that big goal and looking around thinking, “I don’t belong here, someone is going to call me out, I’m not supposed to be here.”  Imposter syndrome plagues even the most accomplished, successful people because it has nothing to do with our qualifications or experience. Imposter syndrome attacks your confidence and changes your inner dialog, and it can impact your productivity, big time.  Imposter Syndrome is...

276: Marketing Secrets from an Etsy Seller

274: Scared to Start Your Email List? Start Here.
My business mantras include -- One: Done is better than perfect. Two: Nothing is urgent. And Three: Don’t build your business on a platform you can’t control.  I can’t tell you how many DMs I get every time Facebook or Instagram does down, hundreds of panicked people wondering how they’ll get their message heard if they can’t post to Instagram that day. You know I like to show up on Instagram and it’s always been a great way to connect and communicate with my audience and ideal customers, but there’s someth...

273: Why I Shouldn't Have Been Afraid to Become a Mom
I was afraid to have a baby. I wasn’t a maternal woman, I loved work so much, I enjoyed every ounce of freedom, I wanted Drew to myself, I didn’t want to “ruin” my body and I required 10 hours of sleep a night...  There were so many reasons why I worried about becoming a mom and yet this yearning came on, 5 years into marriage after we vowed we’d never have kids. That was the start of a caption I shared just one month into motherhood. It’s how I felt before I knew how I would morph into a new version of mys...

272: How Quitting and Failing Lead to a Fashion Empire
I can picture you sitting there at your desk, glancing around those stark office walls, the ping of your email inbox echoing in your ears, and you’re thinking: There’s more for me than this. Jane Lu was an accountant, she had a stable job in the corporate world, but after starting a business on the side she became so distracted that her work suffered. So she quit. And she didn’t tell anyone. And then her business failed.  Now what? No job, no promise of finding another one, and no business. But now Jane is ...


271: Why Your Business Needs a Blog
Is blogging dead? A woman in my mastermind asked me the question at my mastermind retreat last fall. It wasn’t the first time, and over the years I tend to hear this question more and more.  As a girl who started this entire business simply by launching a free Wordpress blog over eight years ago, it’s safe to say that I’m kind of hooked on blogging, and I get a little defensive over it because it was my baby for all of these years.  Have you questioned if blogging is even relevant anymore? Or are you just s...

270: No One Ever Told You This About Your Period
Some days you feel totally in your groove, creating absolute magic and checking things off your Big Three to-do list without hesitation. Other days you move slower and can’t seem to get out of your own way, no matter what tasks are piling up on your plate, and your inner mean girl makes you feel totally awful about it, too. What if you could predict those days? What if you could pinpoint when you’d be in the best mental state to work creatively or when you’ll be totally in the zone, sharp, and focused? Woul...

269: Take Better Photos
The one change I made that lead to major Instagram growth? Posting photos of ME. And ever since I started sharing more of ME on my Instagram feed, I’m asked who takes my photos. People wonder if I hire a photographer or go to a fancy studio every time I need a new shot for my feed. I don’t and you don’t have to either. All you need is this episode and the willingness to try something that might feel a little uncomfortable at first. I’m a photographer, and I know how to get the best shots of other people, bu...


268: What No One Told Us About Parenting
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 ...

264: What to Do When You Feel Out of Alignment
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.

262: Goal Digger Coaching: How to Start and Grow a Podcast
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 whol...

261: 5 Tips to Structure Your Work Day and Stay Productive
Productivity is a tug of war and staying focused seems like a finicky art we’re all still trying to master.

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...

260: The Best Guide to Get Out of Debt and Actually Save
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.

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...


259: SEO Basics to Refresh Your Site Right Now
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.

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.

I don’t have time. My dream is too big. Where do I even start? Our big dreams can take a backseat to everyday life.

Let me warn you from the beginning that this is not going to be an episode on general goal setting or how to be more productive ...

Work smarter, not harder. How many times have you heard that in your life? That’s the goal, but it’s not always the starting point.

253: If I Had $5,000 to Launch My Biz Here's What I'd Do
A few weeks ago, I was standing on a balcony in Puerto Rico… The sun was setting, I was staring down at the beach, holding a glass of champagne and I had a moment. One of those moments when time freezes and you see this sort of highlight reel of a part of your life. For me, it was this flashback to when I started this whole thing and here I was in this reality that was a total *pinch me* moment. I came back to earth when a photographer walked up to me and I asked him what lens he was shooting on. Our conver...

Maybe you’re sitting in our soul-crushing job thinking, “Life has more for me.” That was me in the early days. The windowless corporate office days. The early entrepreneur days asking myself if I could really make it happen. You don’t know much about how I really got my start or what those early days looked like for me… You’ve heard the story about my $300 Craigslist camera but I want to dive into my reality as I took a leap into the world of entrepreneurship.

250: Unscripted: A Call with My Business Coach
I’m on a total high right now. It’s how I always feel after a call with my business coach. I’ve taken courses and joined masterminds and chosen my mentors carefully. Did you know every coach I’ve ever hired has been led by a male? Enter: Dean Graziosi. I saw Dean speak about a year ago, and even though he’s been in this game for a few decades, he still lights up when he talks about what he does. I never stop learning or investing in my development and these calls keep me moving forward. I always record our ...

A Conversation with Tony Robbins

239: How Being Decisive Leads to Success
Decisions, decisions. Are you good at making them or do decisions fill you with fear and doubt? I haven’t always been super decisive, in fact, in the past I would’ve categorized myself as a wishy-washy people pleaser. Can you relate with that? You want to make everyone happy so you let others make decisions for you, like where to eat for dinner or what movie to watch. Now Drew would probably argue that I’m a little TOO decisive, but I know what I want and now I don’t really waiver or question my decision. I...

233: What No One Tells You About "Success"
I want to be super honest with you. My success changed my world. Most women say they are equally afraid of success as they are afraid of failing… That says a lot.

You ask about this a lot and I think it’s worth devoting an episode that’s real and vulnerable about my personal experience of...

228: Become an Instagram Influencer with These Tips (Puno)
