The Goal Digger Podcast

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 something I’ve learned and I am so passionate about it, I’ll never stop sharing the importance of it: You need an email list.  When Instagram goes down -- No sweat. I can still reach my audience, and even more directly, with my email list. Instagram is the handshake, but email closes the deal. Today I’m working with one of my students, Natasha Smith, for a coaching session all about email lists. She’s a little apprehensive about building her list, she doesn’t want to sound sales-y and she’s not entirely sure what would convert best for her business. Class is in session!

273: Why I Shouldn't Have Been Afraid to Become a Mom
(NaN)
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...

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...

One of those moments when time freezes and you see this sort of highlight reel of a part of your life.
