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 entrepreneur who helps go-getter professionals articulate their personal branded career story to land their dream jobs. If you want to leverage LinkedIn to attract new career opportunities, make professional connections, and potentially grow your business, this is your episode. This is a masterclass in all things LinkedIn. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES:

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 dreaming? Time, effort, and passion you put into creating this THING and pushing it out into the universe? Pricing isn’t a one-size-fits-all structure, but let’s talk about it. This episode is a chat about crunching your numbers, drilling into them to find a realistic dollar amount to charge, how to create a unique experience to back up your rates, plus my personal philosophy about how to approach discounts.  The price to press play is $0.00, by the way.

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 earned a degree in a completely different field before realizing that what she really wanted to do was design. So she changed her path and created the life and business she knew she was meant for. We’re talking about that question: What do you want to be when you grow up? And how to make strategic, measured changes to pivot the degree or experience you have, into the purpose you know you’re meant to serve.

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 maintain your physical, mental, and emotional health. This episode is the starter’s manual for protecting your time and intentionally planning a day off… Or maybe even a week or month! So if you’re feeling fatigued, worn out, and tired of it all, let me share with you my methods for protecting my time and why taking a day off can actually get you AHEAD, not behind like it might make you feel.  Don’t wait a single second.

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 yourself as a hobbyist, a side-hustler, a small business owner… But CEO? That title is harder to claim when imposter syndrome starts creeping in. In this episode, Mahisha Dellinger opens up about the start of her business, why she prayed to be laid off from her corporate job, and the mindset hacks she uses to own her title to do big things for her business and the women she mentors.  GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES:

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, and affiliate marketing done really, really well can be a monetarily rewarding version of you sharing your very favorite things.  It requires strategy, but it doesn't require a whole lot of blood, sweat, and tears that can often come when we launch our own products in our own businesses.  This episode is your guide to tangible strategies to affiliate the right way AKA not feeling phony or slimy. Plus, advice for picking companies to work with that align with what you can authentically sell and what you’re audience wants to buy.

No one told us THIS about motherhood… and we’re talking about it mama to mama, CEO to CEO.

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 to the point where I just felt straight up fatigued, but at least I was handling it all myself, right? …Wrong.  This episode will help you identify if you’re ready to outsource and walk you through how to start outsourcing in a way that doesn’t scare you.

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.

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 work to retool your own mental blocks around selling. I will walk through the actual steps you can take in your business to sell with authenticity and realness, rather than feeling like you're bothering your people or, worse, losing members of your audience simply because you're selling the things you believe in.

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.

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 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 myself, one I never imagined myself becoming.  Maybe it’s because we waited three long years or we prepared for the worst.

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 to share how we’re feeling and what we’ve learned since day one of parenthood. We’re answering your questions from Instagram and Facebook, and in true Kutcher form, we’re not holding back on this. I’m so excited to welcome my husband, Drew Kutcher, back to the show for another Ask Us Anything. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES:

Becoming an entrepreneur has you writing a lot these days: Captions, content for your website, messages in emails… It’s a TON of work, and you don’t love being a copywriter. I get it. Here’s the thing -- Words are like the connective tissue of our brands. They make you easy to relate to, connect with, and understand on a deeper level, and they hold your brand together with a cohesive story across several platforms. See, our businesses aren't just the things we sell to other people. The WORDS that lift up our businesses shed light on more than just what we're selling. I’m sharing 5 EASY copy fixes that you can make TODAY. Tune in, then log off and put these tips into motion. Because your words matter and it’s time to put some confidence behind yours.

I strive every day to check my privilege. I want to DO BETTER as a white woman to celebrate the diversity in this community, and recognize where I can be a positive force for inclusion and representation of all of the wonderful ways we are all different.  I’m learning how to better speak about the tough topics. I’ve been SCARED to say the wrong things, so I’ve said nothing at all. But I know that there’s always room for growth and progress through having these tough conversations.  In this episode, I’m having a tough conversation. When I first spoke to Sarah Rose Summers, she was nearly halfway through her term as Miss USA 2018 and preparing for the Miss Universe competition in Thailand. I loved our conversation, but it never made it to air. You might remember the headlines that came out of the competition, the story about Miss USA and the comments she made about another contestant. We held off on airing her original episode, because my team and I knew we had an important responsibility and opportunity to face a tough topic head on and have a larger conversation about what happened and what we’ve all learned.  I am thrilled to welcome Sarah Rose Summers to Goal Digger today. Yes, we are two white women, stepping up to the mics to talk about diversity, race, and inclusion. I want to have a real, honest conversation that gets us all thinking of ways to do better, grow, be challenged, and show up after we’ve messed up.

Pick a lane, commit to it and follow through. That’s what I tell my students, because it’s true, consistency is one of the biggest factors of success. So, are you consistent with your email marketing? This is one of the KEY areas you need to dial it in. It’s the most reliable way to reach your audience. It should be on your short list of places you’re going to show up consistently.  Maybe you’ve listened to my advice and started a list but you’re struggling with the consistency part. Or maybe it’s been at the bottom of your to-do list for the last two years, or maybe you’re just not sure you’re doing it right… If you’re panicking, take a deep breath. I’ve got you -- today is a training in email lists, how to nurture your peeps, and serving your audience well and all you’ve gotta do is listen.

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. She faced cultural opposition and yet she pushed through to find her voice and identity, inspiring women across the globe to do the same. Sazan’s success is undeniable, right? A million followers, sold out products, a top-rated podcast. But she reached a point where the world saw her as one thing, and she felt totally out of alignment with that image. I loved hearing about Sazan’s life before she grew her business, and the changes she made when her sweet baby entered this world, so she could show up in a way that was totally true to who she is now. If you’ve ever felt conflicted and out of sync with the person you are inside and the one showing up in your squares on social media, this is your episode.

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 whole lot of help from my team. I’ve learned so much from day one of starting a podcast. 18 million downloads later, my team and I have our podcast system down to a science that allows us to release FREE quality content two times a week just for you. In this episode, I’m answering those questions and more with a special guest, Tori Maloney.

Productivity is a tug of war and staying focused seems like a finicky art we’re all still trying to master. You know what you have to finish in a day to reach those goals, so why is it SO HARD to get it done? My guess -- because it comes from experience -- you need a makeover. 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 down my “work smarter, not harder” tips that keep me focused and productive during the long days growing my business, from how to make a to do list that moves the needle to ways you can improve your space for optimal workflow.

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. Nearly 1 in 3 women in our country are discouraged about their finances with over 68% feeling overwhelmed by debt. But it doesn’t have to be that way. 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 from ANY starting point, when to invest in your business, and simple strategies to contribute to your savings that won’t leave you feeling cash strapped at the end of the month. She’s so much fun to talk to… I laughed and learned and now it’s your turn. Press play right now.  GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES:

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. And best case scenario our content isn’t only SEEN, but it’s ranked high up on that Google results page and gets those coveted clicks. 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. The Google algorithm judges our pages with over 200 different criteria -- Trying to master them all would be a full time job, and you’ve got bigger things to do. So what will actually move the needle? How can you rank ahead of your competitors? What’s worth the fuss?

You don’t need 10K to start your business as an influencer. What do you need? Today’s episode. Today’s guest, Ali Grant, knows influencers. She launched her business as one of the first agencies working on influencer outreach and collaboration. I’m asking her your biggest questions: How many followers do I need to start making money? What are the secrets to NAILING a brand pitch? And really, how much do influencers actually make per post?  Remember when “Influencers” weren’t even a thing? Like when advertising on the internet was mainly in the form of pop up ads and spam emails? I can’t say I miss those days -- I love the Influencer Marketing world we live in today. You probably know that I’m an influencer and I make money from sponsored posts, but the reality is if you have ONE follower you are an influencer. Getting paid to post? With the right strategy, I know you can do it. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES:

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. It’s so easy to push them away, fire off every excuse for not leaning into our biggest goals, and ignore the little pull they have on our hearts. I wholeheartedly believe that these big ideas that both excite and frighten us are the only things worth pursuing at all. 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 and stick to your goals. This episode is about figuring out that one thing you should be doing and then reverse engineering your way to achieve the result you want.

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. It can take years to get your business to a place where it’s running itself, you’re making money while you sleep, and you’re not burning the midnight oil every. single. night. I love sharing my own strategies on this show for efficient workflows and staying productive, but today with my guest, we’re looking at the science and data behind it all. What are the proven methods to being more productive while actually doing less? And get this… the productivity hack relating to our menstrual cycle that actually BLEW MY MIND. Kate Northrup teaches data-driven and soul-driven time and energy management practices that result in saving time, making more money, and experiencing less stress. Check, check and check, right?

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 conversation took off and he asked me ONE question that inspired this whole episode. He said, “If you had $5,000 and had to start all over again, where would you spend it and what would you do?” Wow.

Goal Digger Coaching is back and you get to listen in as a listener gets coached on AIR by me! Create a course? Teach people online? Who… Me? Be kind and rewind to 4 years ago when I was asking myself those same questions. Now, I’m an online educator bringing in 90% of my profits with my courses on Instagram, Pinterest, Email List Building, and more. Now the only question is: Could YOU create a course? My answer is YES. I’m going one-on-one with today’s guest, Meg Wheeler. She’s a student in my List to Launch Lab, and she’s toying with the same course questions that you might be facing in your own business. How do you know you’re ready to offer a course? What should your course be about? And how do determine what your audience needs not what you think they need? All that, plus more, going all the way from the basics through launch in this coaching session.

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.

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 calls (because I seriously cannot scribble notes fast enough!) so I’m peeling back the curtain big time and letting you listen into a session so you can hear what it’s like to be coached and what I am asking. It’s kind of like the old-school landline days when you could pick up the phone and listen to your parents talk from the other room… Except it’s an unscripted, raw, and unedited call with the business coach that always leaves me fired up and focused. I get really open and honest about where I’m at, the feeling of contentedness, my fear of selling, and MORE. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES:

I have never sat up to the mic with a male guest. Until today. I’m ending the all-female streak in this bonus episode because I know this guest brings with him a truly transformational message and a reputation in the world of business that precedes him.

But if you’re a photographer or other service-based entrepreneur, I’m guessing an empty calendar makes you feel the opposite. No bookings, no money… Alllll the stress.

Boundaries. Is there such a thing? As we’re building our businesses, creating our personal brands, and sharing the good, bad, and *real* moments on social media, where is the line between our public and private lives anymore?  We scrapped the interview questions for an honest conversation with our guest today, Kate Arends. She created the lifestyle brand Wit & Delight and what started as a personal project to get to know herself became a resource for her 3.3 million followers to feel less alone in the ups and downs of their journey through life. She shares food, design, and travel, and publishes deeply personal essays to explore her journey through divorce, mental illness, and an undiagnosed learning disability. Through it all, Kate expertly crafted a deeply personal brand with a focus on her passions. I ask her about the whole process, how she creates boundaries while maintaining a brand that is so personal, and what she would do if she started over today.

A $300 Craigslist camera launched my photography career and turned into all of this. Stop me if you’ve heard this one… I’ve told it a million times because it’s a reminder of how I got this whole thing going. When I speak to entrepreneurs, many aren’t sure they want to be doing what they are currently doing ten years from now. Wedding photography wasn’t something I could see myself doing 10, 20 years down the road. But I made a powerful pivot and what came next was my dream business. In this episode I get into the HOW of my pivot and hopefully inspire you to start thinking about what’s next for you. You don’t have to back yourself into a corner, I want you to already be thinking forward about the next step so that when your passion fades, you’ve got a powerful pivot ready to propel you forward without sacrificing profits.

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 want to walk you through how I became a better decision maker, the things I ask myself when making big decisions, and how you can implement a few simple steps to become better at making decisions and ditch the doubt that sometimes comes with them.

Authenticity is more than posting the unedited, unfiltered photos on our feed. Today’s guest is a self-proclaimed authenticity advocate who believes sharing her truth, even the talking about the tough stuff out loud, can help other women feel like they aren’t alone. Sarah Herron was the first contestant on ABC’s The Bachelor with a physical disability, and although it didn’t end in her winning the final rose, she turned the sometimes tumultuous Bachelor experience into a new positive life purpose. Sarah was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome, but it hasn’t stopped her from climbing mountains, skiing double black diamonds and even searching for love on television. This chat gets real and raw about her time on the show and how it was a catalyst for starting her nonprofit. This girl is THE example of finding positivity and purpose in challenging times.

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.

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: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES:

It’s time to talk about mental health and normalize therapy. Today’s guest, Elyse Snipes, is a marriage and family therapist skilled at bringing practical solutions to everyday problems with a little creative magic and a whole lot of truth. She works with her patients to unlock their limiting beliefs and build a healthier narrative that makes room for healing, connection, and personal freedom… And she does it all from her restored 1953 vintage trailer parked on the beach. I invited Elyse on the show because as entrepreneurs, we’re welcoming a bonus layer of expectation, stress, anxiety, and decision-making into our lives, and in order to be successful in our businesses, and our personal lives, we need tools to manage these often challenging hurdles. I love Elyse’s mission to normalize therapy, and do it a little different than I’ve ever seen before. If you have questions about therapy, or if you think you might benefit from working with a therapist but you don’t even know where to begin, Elyse will walk you through it in this episode.

Fact or fiction: Having tons of followers is the only way to get more partnership possibilities, more business opportunities, and by extension, more money. That’s totally FICTION. In the social media world of buying followers and the dreaded follow-unfollow game, the quality of your engagement with your audience is way more valuable than getting that ‘K’ next to your follower count. Micro-influencers are crushing the game and building dedicated, engaged followings that brands are leaning into and wanting to target. Puno is a digital entrepreneur and web designer. She founded @ilovecreatives, a platform for creatives to connect and she co-created, an Instagram marketing tool where you can strategically find, grow, and track your community. She’s also a YouTuber and takes the most epic photos with her cat. If you’ve ever wondered if micro-influencer partnerships are the right choice to market your business, or if YOU are a micro-influencer and you want to attract more partnerships and opportunities, this episode is rich with the details you need.

Loner. Hermit. Recluse. Antisocial. If you search introvert in a thesaurus you’ll find some of these words. Hermit wasn’t in there, but my mom called me that once, so there’s that. But look mom! Introverts can make friends and build big businesses, too! Whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, being an entrepreneur can teach you a LOT about yourself, your leadership style, and help you to hone in on your skills… But entrepreneurship also has a tendency to point out the areas where you don’t quite shine. Is it better to be introverted and extroverted as an entrepreneur? Today I’m going to teach you how to maximize whichever one you are to rock your business! I’ll also break down how I feel like my journey in entrepreneurship has changed me and taken me from being an extremely extroverted girl to someone who is definitely and entirely introverted.

PLEASE READ: After publishing this episode it was brought to our attention that there is a great deal of controversy and damaging claims surrounding the company featured in this interview, LuLaRoe. LuLaRoe is currently under investigation and facing multiple lawsuits. Our intent on this show was to shed light on a different type of business model and how to successfully approach marketing in this space. While we support the actionable tips shared by our guest and believe they can be valuable for our audience, we do not support LuLaRoe. We hope our listener's takeaways are not focused on the company featured but focused on: Knowing your “why” behind anything that you do and letting it shine in all you share. How to stand out among the others selling your same product or within your industry.  Researching different opportunities that can help you spend more time with your family and loved ones. Approaching relationships not with the sale in mind but in truly being able to connect with other human beings on a heart level. Using your business as a means to serve others needs and not a place to constantly sell. Preserving relationships by being sincere with every interaction. The importance of creating a personal experience for your customers versus creating mass appeal. As always, we recommend researching business opportunities before entering them. We are privileged to serve the Goal Digger audience each week with inspiring stories and know the platform we have built comes with enormous responsibility. We heard your concerns, we're sorry, and we're grateful to have your continued support of the show.   GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES:

It’s money that allows us to pay our rent, buy our groceries, see the world, feel secure, pay for healthcare... The list goes on.

The average user clicks, swipes, and taps 2,617 times PER DAY. 47% of parents are concerned that their child is addicted to screens while, 89% of parents blame themselves.
