The Goal Digger Podcast

In the early days of my brand launching was more of a battle than a sweet cakewalk. Nowadays, we’ve got launching down to a T. We don’t have all the answers -- OH, we are still learning so much every single week and through every single launch. But truthfully it comes down to a lot of little things, and ONE major thing that makes the key difference. I want to talk today about the pre-launch. I believe pre-launch, the period of time before you make the actual offer available or open the cart, is the make or break for a launch and the goal you want to hit. This is my exact framework for pre-launch… What I do in the days and weeks leading up to launch to make THAT time way more manageable, light, and rewarding.   GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: https://jennakutcherblog.com/prelaunch/

I knew I wanted a new way to move and care for my body so I followed the rave reviews of some friends and got this machine delivered to my house and vowed to just give it a shot. Now let me be totally candid again — It’s not necessarily the bike that keeps me coming back every day. It’s this community of people cheering me on and sending virtual high fives, and maybe most of all, it’s the in...

No one is BORN an entrepreneur -- you become one over time and grow into that role like your big sister’s old hand me down shoes you used to wear. It starts out weird and uncomfortable, and then with time and experience, it becomes a natural way of being. It’s not an overnight thing, and...
