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. I want to preface the whole thing to say that I am so, so grateful for every ounce of success that has come my way, but my life has changed so much since I left the corporate world and started my own business back in 2012. 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 growing a large brand, building a multimillion dollar company, and how it’s changed things for me, specifically how it’s affected my relationships. I hope you’ll sprinkle some grace over everything I’m about to say, and know that I’m showing up to tackle something that I’ve been personally struggling with in hopes that it will help you to understand what success can REALLY look like behind the scenes.

How to Get People on Board With Your Business
So you want to start a business but your husband isn’t on board. It can be difficult to be a woman striving for more in her career: It goes against traditional gender roles, people can question your priorities, and it’s easy to feel like a workaholic compared to your peers… Not having that support, or even having resistance from your closest family and friends, presents a whole new hurdle to clear. So how do you do it? How do you navigate your relationships and get your husband, partner, BFF, or family on board with your big idea? I’m breaking it down as a married woman, but no matter what stage of life you’re in, this episode will help you face the resistance when the people you love don’t really understand or fully get “it.” GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES:http://jennakutcherblog.com/onboard/

A Step by Step Guide To Start Your Own Podcast
PODCASTING FOR DUMMIES. If you're considering starting a podcast, wondering what goes into podcasting, or just curious about our behind-the-scenes of this show, this episode is for you! I want to be open about the nitty gritty process of starting a podcast from A to Z and let you in on how you can start one of your own!

What's a Visual Brand and Why Do You Need One?
Let Me Give It To Ya Straight: Did you know 30% of our brains are taken up by neurons devoted to visual processing as compared to 8% devoted to touch and only 3% devoted to hearing. People have the ability to process visual information 60,000x faster than text information! 63% of social media is made up of images AND photos on Facebook get 53% more likes than the average post. You have 8 seconds to make an impression and get someone’s attention before they click to something else. That’s shorter than the attention span of a goldfish. Alright, did I get your attention? Long story short: visuals matter. And today I’m going to walk you through ways that you can share stories through the images, fonts, colors, and styles you are sharing online.

Goal Diggers, this episode has the potential to completely change your business… Seriously. Our guest today,Christina Scalera, is the legal attorney and founder behind The Contract Shop, a contract template store for creative entrepreneurs, wedding professionals, and coaches... Christina is a creative as well and soon realized that she could blend her two interests (creativity and law) into a business that brought the benefit of her legal training to help her fellow creatives. It became clear that my fellow creatives needed legal help-- there wasn’t anything or anyone out there to help them. On the one hand, other legal sites provided contract templates that were too generic and disconnected from the pulse of the creative industry. On the other, hiring an attorney is a difficult process-- you don’t know who is good and who isn’t, and even if you found the cheapest attorney out there, hiring someone to draft your business contracts is an expensive endeavour. And today we are luck...
