The Goal Digger Podcast

Hey Goal Diggers! Another “Ask Jenna Anything” Episode! I fielded your questions from both the Goal Digger Insiders FB group and the Goal Digger Instagram (if you’re not hanging out there, you’re totally missing out!) I was absolutely floored by the amount of responses I got from you guys, and I decided to group them by category! I am still letting you call the shots and am fully covering ALL the nitty gritty details. Many of you know my story-- a burnt out photographer, blogger, businesswoman juggling (and struggling) with all the balls in the air. BUT finally, I reached a breaking point, took a leap, and outsourced one job… then two.. Then hired a full-time member… and another… It’s been a whirlwind, but the BEST decision I’ve ever made, and today we are covering all the behind the scenes magic of how you can hire your own dream team! Let’s get started! TUNE IN TO HEAR THE JUICY ANSWERS TO ALL OF THESE QUESTIONS! (Is your name mentioned on air?!) Okay, first things first… so many of you asked! So here is a quick RUN DOWN OF TEAM JK What does your current team like? What are their roles? Are they full-time part time? Is YOUR team in person or all online? Caitlyn, Kate, Danielle, Kerry, Steph, Ashlyn, Rebecca, Alex (?) Morgan K: Jenna! I need help with the struggle of taking my personal brand to hiring. I own a fitness studio, named as me and had so much growth this year. I wonder how to prepare clients I engage with face to face each day that someone else will soon be in front of them too! Marie W: What I’m currently needing help with is HOW do you go about hiring your first employee? Where do you look? What do you look for? I really need someone to help manage my day to day tasks but I’m terrified of hiring someone who isn’t a good fit Meagan J: How do you divide responsibilities during a project? And about communication, I know you communicate via slack, but being that your team members are mostly contractors and set their own schedules, are your communications ever lost in translation when someone isn't logged in? Another from Megan J (above): How do you set expectations when taking on a new team member? Megan J (again! Love it!): Do you find it difficult to work remotely with your team at times? Alyssa C: How do you budget for hourly workers? Are they paid a "set" number of hours per week? I loved your episode on hiring your team, but want to hear more about the hourly worker piece, especially with everyone working remotely. Rebecca T: What is the best way to hire/create a great brand ambassador? Molly G: How do you, Jenna Kutcher yourself, make time to reach out and offer guidance to everyone, given the huge volume of photographers and fans you have? How do you keep it personal and meaningful? What keeps you from delegating most of this to your support team? Melissa (Instagram) Have y'all set up a Trello board or anything like that to communicate deadline, ideas, etc? Blue salad (on Instagram) : How do you handle management of your company with employees and keeping your brand consistent? Aida G: Hey Jenna, I would love to know how you handle all the projects that you have going on without being overwhelmed (I know you have people working for you - but, you also need to keep track of what they are doing - right?). I just want to learn how I can juggle different projects in the most efficient way. Thanks for all your amazing content: Corinna-marie (Instagram) Hi Jenna!! My question is is in regards to your amazing team. How did you find them and what is your advice for someone who wants to be on a team like yours! Where can you find those opportunities and how can you best position yourself as a candidate to become a boss babe's employee? -------- And, as always, if you have questions for me, I am CONSTANTLY checking our Goal Digger Podcast Insiders FB group and Goal Digger Instagram account to make sure I am answering YOUR questions. I want to see your name in those groups!
