#473: Let's Cut The Fluff: How Are You, Really? with Jenna Kutcher
2022/06/23
How to ditch the golden handcuffs and create a life on your terms As a photographer, influencer, course creator, author, and host of the wildly popular Goal Digger podcast, Jenna Kutcher is one of the most talented content creators out there. I love and respect Jenna so much not only because she is a digital marketing extraordinaire, but she’s hands down one of the most grounded women that I know.  And despite all of her success, what’s most impressive about Jenna is that her driving force has never really been about the hustle. She’s embraced the simple notion that we -- women especially -- crave a life of fulfillment, and has managed to create a life on her own terms while building an incredibly lucrative business.  It’s possible, friend, and Jenna is living proof. Now normally when Jenna is on the show, we talk shop about all things online marketing (in fact, she recently joined me for an episode about how to launch a podcast – check it out here if you missed it.)  But in this conversation, we talk about the things that are important in becoming a successful entrepreneur but all-too-often get overlooked – like your sense of identity, whether or not your work is aligning with your values, and your purpose.  On paper, these things might not sound like a big deal, but trust me on this one -- they are -- and that’s why I am so excited to share this episode with you. In it, Jenna and I discuss: How to take inventory of your life and what to do with the information that surfaces The meaning of ‘golden handcuffs’ and how you can get out of them What to do if you feel like you’ve traded your 9 to 5 job for a 24/7 business How to overcome the fear of asking for help when you need it most The inspiration for her new book How Are You, Really?: Living Your Truth One Answer at a Time So whether you’re still in the throws of the 9 to 5 grind, have just started your business, or are an established online entrepreneur, this episode has something for everyone -- because in the end, I think it’s safe to say that we all desire the same thing -- to be fulfilled. Here’s a glance at this episode... [06:07] Reframing is extremely powerful, and can be helpful when you find yourself fearful of something. [07:42] If you want to find ways to do more meaningful work, look at your calendar ahead and take a life inventory. Are you passionate about it? Does it align with your values? Does it bring you joy?  [10:38] Learn how to rest in the present outside of work, so that when you are in work-mode, you’re laser-focused.  [15:06] Golden handcuffs are benefits like unlimited vacation that make people feel stuck in the workplace. Do these really add value to your life? [19:28] Entrepreneurship can get you to a life of freedom and choice, but you have to have a "why" that’s stronger than your work. [24:24] The more you ask for help, the easier it becomes to ask for and receive it. Accept help if you want to live out your vision. [28:39] You never know when the power of your story will inspire someone else to keep showing up in their life. You could literally change someone's trajectory. [33:02] How Are You, Really?: Living Your Truth One Answer at a Time is Jenna's new book for women who are looking to come home to themselves.

#472: Perfectionism Vs. Procrastination: What’s REALLY Happening
2022/06/21
Being a perfectionist only holds you back from taking action If I were a gambling woman, I’d bet there’s been a couple of times where you’ve really struggled to make a decision, or procrastinated taking action on something because it wasn’t 100% perfect. Maybe it was a really big decision, like whether or not you should launch your business or a podcast. Or maybe it was something smaller, like deploying a new ad, or lead magnet.  As entrepreneurs, we are faced with decision after decision, day after day. Quite frankly, It can be exhausting. But I’m going to clue you in on something really important: It’s crucial that you’re able to make an informed decision quickly if you want to truly grow your business.  So many people procrastinate taking action because they are striving for perfection. But I’m here to tell you, sweet friend, that hemming and hawing over something only means one thing -- you’re delaying the inevitable.  While you’re wasting precious time, you could be gaining momentum and getting results. And even if you totally fail, you have an opportunity to learn from your mistakes and then knock it out of the park the next time.  As my old boss Tony Robbins says, it’s all about taking massive action -- and I can confidently say that my own ability to take action on things quickly has been a big contributor to my own success.  And that’s why I thought I’d share some of my own thoughts and experiences on this topic so that if you struggle with making decisions, or think your perfectionism is holding you back, you will have a much easier time the next time around. Alright, friend. Grab that iced latte and get ready to make your next decision quickly and confidently, like a real boss.

2022/06/16
When your students fall off the horse, use these strategies to get them back on If you have an evergreen course, then this episode is for you, sweet friend because I’m diving deep into an issue that most evergreen course creators face -- and that’s losing the attention and engagement of your students.  And even if you haven’t created your evergreen course yet, if you’ve ever taken one, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

After all, we’re all human. Let’s be real -- it even happens in my evergreen course, List Builders Society, and I’ve been in the game for 13 years now! Luckily, I have some tools in my arsenal to help combat the dreaded engagement drop-off that I’m going to share with you in this episode. Over the years, I’ve found that these strategies have significantly helped keep my audience interested and engaged, which is a win-win for everyone.  So if you want your students to show up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, excited, and ready to learn throughout the entire duration of your course, then open up that Google doc and get ready to take notes -- because this episode is packed with my very best tips.

#470: How I Overcame My Fear Of Getting Personal On Social Media
2022/06/14
Opening up on social media can be hard, but it will pay off in the long run Have you ever truly thought about what life was like before social media?  I may be dating myself, but I remember writing notes to friends and family and dropping them in the mail, snapping pictures with Polaroid cameras, and calling a friend (whose phone number I knew by heart) when I needed some social interaction, instead of scrolling through Instagram.  It was a totally different time -- not any better, and not any worse than it is now -- but I will say that the connection you felt from sharing your life with a few close friends as opposed to hundreds or thousands on social media was something really special.  Life was a bit more mysterious because everything we did wasn’t available for everybody to see, let alone have an opinion about.  I won’t lie -- I have struggled with posting about my personal life on social media, and if you take a look at my Instagram feed you’ll see that while there are some personal posts sprinkled throughout, it’s mostly business content.  I’m pretty reserved when it comes to opening up about my marriage, my insecurities, and being a step-mom for a couple of reasons, which you’ll hear about in this episode.  That being said, over time, I realized that in order to have the business that I dreamt of having, I needed to let my audience in – and little by little, that’s just what I did.  So I thought it would be great to share how I’ve managed to overcome some of the anxiety I’ve had about sharing personal content on social platforms because let’s be real, it can be intimidating to do if you’re a private person -- but it’s also a necessary part of being an online entrepreneur in 2022. In this episode, you’ll hear:  The limiting beliefs that held me back from posting personal content for years How I’ve managed to overcome anxiety about letting people into my personal life online What it's like to have a partner who doesn’t love social media, and how we’ve found a way to make it enjoyable and comfortable for both of us Happy listening!

#468: 3 Pieces of Advice That Have Made Me A Better Entrepreneur
2022/06/07
These words of wisdom have been essential to my growth as a business owner As an entrepreneur, I’m sure you’ve gotten advice about how to run your business from just about everybody -- your family, your friends, your next-door neighbor, even the random barista at Starbucks that you happened to strike up a conversation with.  Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad. And sometimes, you get a piece of advice that’s so significant that it sticks with you for years and years. It pushes you to become a better version of yourself, gives you perspective, and calms your mind.  There are three pieces of advice I’ve gotten that have had that sort of impact on my life. Yes, just three -- and I’m going to share them with you in this episode.  And what’s great about this advice is that it doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t care who you are, or what’s happened in your past -- it’s universal. And while it can apply to anyone in any situation, I’ve found it to be particularly helpful in navigating the unique challenges that come along with being an entrepreneur.  It’s my hope that these pieces of advice help you as much as they’ve helped me.

#467: How To Host A Live Virtual Event That Will Wow Your Audience
2022/06/02
My step-by-step process for pulling off an online event like a pro Lights… Camera…. Start video?  Live events sure look a whole lot different these days than they used to, wouldn’t you say?  When I first started my entrepreneurial journey 13 years ago, in-person events were really the only way to get your community together in one place at the same time. Today, we have countless options available to connect with our audiences Live, and most of them don’t even require us to leave the house. Don’t get me wrong, in-person events are great, and are still an excellent option depending on what your goals are -- but there are also many things to consider, which I’ll talk about in this episode.  What I really want to share with you is how you can pull off a live, virtual event like a pro -- because let me tell you, I have found immense value in connecting with my students in this way -- and not just monetarily.  But just like a Live in-person event, a Live virtual event takes a good amount of planning and preparation -- and there’s also a lot going on behind the scenes when the camera is rolling that you might not even be aware of. The good news is, I’ve got my virtual events running like a well-oiled machine, and in this episode, I’m sharing my top tips on how to host one that will blow your customer’s socks off. You’ll learn:  The pros and cons of live in-person events and Live virtual events How far in advance you should start planning your event What to consider when planning your content, and how to create a theme How to determine whether you should sell at your event, or simply nurture The technology I use to pull my Live virtual events off without a hitch Where you can host your virtual event if you don’t want to host at home Alright, friend. Tune in, take notes, and get ready to rock your virtual stage. Here’s a glance at this episode... [06:15] Let’s talk about Live virtual events versus in-person events. Virtual events have a huge ROI. They have a larger outreach and attendance rate. They are more accessible and lower cost for attendees. More people equals more sales. It's also more cost-effective and great for introverts. [11:56] Six key decisions include: When are you having it? What is your theme? How long will it be? Will you be selling? What platform will you use? Where will you host it? [12:19] When will you host your event? Get those dates on the calendar. It takes time to plan, organize, and fill up the event. [13:50] What will your theme be? Choosing the theme comes down to who's your audience, whether it's a bonus and the season of the event. [15:22] How long will your event be? The sweet spot is different for everyone. Set the length for what makes the most sense for your audience and your promise for the event. [17:00] Will you be selling or is this a bonus event to nurture your audience or a mix of both? Selling from stage can be seamless, but you have to plan for it. [18:48] What platform will you host on? We are using Vimeo for our virtual live events. You always need a backup plan when it comes to using technology.  [20:38] Where will you host your virtual event? If you have the space and availability to host it at home, it will save a lot of time and stress. You could also rent an Airbnb or event space. [24:26] Create a theme for each day of your event. This helps plan out the content. You want to create a feeling of connection and if you are selling, lead into the product. Make commitments on the last day. [28:55] It's very important to practice your presentation in advance. When you choose speakers make sure that they are in line with the event. Choose speakers that add massive value. You can do book buys or compensate the speaker. [35:36] I challenge you to host a virtual live event this year. It has immense value and strengthens your relationship with your audience. Start working through the six key decisions. Rate, Review, & Follow on Apple Podcasts "I l

#466: A Tangible Approach For Tripling Your Time Management Capacity with Ed Mylett
2022/06/01
Ed shares his best mindset tips for achieving happiness and success simultaneously My guest on this episode is a top business leader, peak performance expert, and global keynote speaker who just happens to be the go-to guy for building happiness and success simultaneously -- and let’s be real, who doesn’t want to do that?!  His name is Ed Mylett, and if you haven’t heard any of his content before, listen closely because he is someone whom I highly respect in both business and life.  And here’s the thing about Ed. He’s one of the fastest-growing business personalities in the history of social media, with an uncanny ability to cut through the noise with his straightforward messaging. But Ed isn’t just an influencer who “talks the talk.” He’s a self-made millionaire who has built one of the most prolific financial service businesses the world has ever seen, among many others. Now, a big part of what’s made Ed such a successful entrepreneur is his mindset. And if you’ve been listening for a while, you know that achieving success in anything takes more than just strategy and tactics -- it takes a bulletproof mindset, too.  Ed is truly a master of mindset, and in this episode, he shares the habits that have helped make him the entrepreneur that he is today. You’ll learn:  The key to managing overwhelm when setting out to achieve life goals What a single action thought, or association can do to transform how you feel The concept around “One More” and how it can reshape your mindset How changing your identity can influence each part of your life What anyone can do to triple their time management capacity How can asking yourself the right questions can advance the quality of your life How repetition can produce serious results  As you can see, this episode is jam-packed with ways to become the best entrepreneur (and human) that you can be. Here’s a glance at this episode... [11:07] When you think of the power of one more, flip the script. What if the opportunity was taken away from you.? [12:22] Self-confidence is the process of keeping the promises you make to yourself. Doing one more can make you superhuman. [15:10] Successful people aren't lucky. They just notice the things around them that they are thinking about.  [16:31] Overwhelm is trying to process results that are higher than your identity level. You create the emotion because you're starting to exceed your identity. [20:03] The trilogy of identity is faith, intention, and association. If you have faith, carry it with you, focus on your intention, and associate yourself with people who are achieving at a higher level.  [22:23] Let your mess be your message. [37:42] Live your life with intention and realize how precious it really is.

#465: How I’m Prepping for 30 Days Away From My Business
2022/05/31
Here’s how to pull off a sabbatical and make sure you actually enjoy taking it Have you ever thought about taking a sabbatical?  When I say sabbatical, I mean taking an extended period of time away from your business or work to travel, pursue your interests, or heck, just relax. I don’t know about you, but for many years I thought that only people with careers in higher education were “allowed” to take a sabbatical because I’ve never heard about anyone in a typical 9 to 5 jetting off for a month (or more) to do whatever their heart pleases. That’s why I am beyond grateful to have my own business, which gives me so much – especially the opportunity to create the life I want to live. And guess what? Taking a sabbatical is a part of it.  Four years ago I made the commitment to take a sabbatical, and this summer I’m actually doing it. I’ll be taking 30 whole days away from my business to relax, spend quality time with friends and family, and completely disconnect.  Yes, I said it: Completely disconnect. There will be no check-ins, emails, Slack messages, or Asana tasks. I’m going off the grid from my business, and I’ve got my team set up to win. I know, I know. You’re probably thinking, “But Amy, you’re obsessed with your business. How on Earth can you be confident that everything will run smoothly AND be totally present while you’re away?”  And that’s what this episode is all about. In it, I’ll share:   How far in advance I started planning for my sabbatical What I’m doing to make sure I have enough content stockpiled The systems I have in place to ensure everything runs on autopilot What I’m most nervous about and excited for How to approach your boss about taking a sabbatical if you’re in a 9 to 5 job So if you’ve ever considered taking a little break from your business, tune in to hear exactly what I’m doing to set myself (and my team) up for success. Here’s a glance at this episode... [03:08] I'm taking a sabbatical -- 30 days to rest, recharge, and spend quality time with my friends and family.  [08:25] By completely disconnecting from your business for an extended period of time, you can come back with so much more energy, creativity, and innovation. [10:30] I am stockpiling videos, media, podcasts, and other content for when I’m out. My team had to get any recording requests to me in advance.  [11:22] My executive assistant and I have been mindful of my calendar leading up to the sabbatical. We've also thought about how I'll ease back in when I return. [12:58] Taking a sabbatical does take financial resources and planning. You want to have things squared away before you go.  [13:59] If you still have a 9 to 5 job, you'll most likely have to get approval from your boss. Explain to them how they will benefit from your time away. [15:49] I'm equally excited and nervous about my sabbatical. This will be a challenge for me to fully let go of what’s going on in my business. [17:11] I'm excited because I think I'll come back even better. I'll be recharged and ready to go.  [20:36] It was important to spend my sabbatical somewhere other than my home because I don't trust myself to not text my team or get involved in the business. [22:56] Take out your journal and write down where you want to go, and then DM me @AmyPorterfield on Instagram and let me know.

#463: How To Create More White Space & Still Succeed
2022/05/24
What’s the point of working your life away? Instead, let’s do less and make more.  If you’re a new business owner or are ramping up to launch your business soon, I would hedge a bet that you have some ideas about what it takes to become incredibly successful. In fact, you’re probably thinking that in order to make the kind of money that you want and stay ahead of the game, you’ll need to be working constantly. But what I’m about to tell you will most likely surprise you, because it goes against what we hear from many entrepreneurs who are in the public eye, and most conventional wisdom. Ready for it?  Lean in a little closer… You do not need to work your life away to be incredibly profitable in your online business. I wish I would’ve realized this much earlier because now that I’m 13 years into it, I know that the best entrepreneurs value their downtime away from their business.  Honestly, I have a little guilt about how much time I spent working when I was ramping up, and in retrospect, I know I could have done even better if I would have allowed for a little bit of rest in my life.  I know, I know… you’re probably thinking that there’s no way you’ll be able to achieve what you want unless you’re constantly grinding. And that may be true for the first couple of years when you’re just getting started, but once you’ve gotten into a good groove and are making money, you’ve got to ask yourself, what am I doing this for?  These days I am all about creating a life and business on my terms, and if you’ve been tuning in for a while, you know that last year I transitioned my team to a 4-day workweek. And guess what? We are still meeting our goals, and I’m still able to have a multi-million dollar business. In letting go of my ‘hustle hard’ mentality, I’ve gained so much more than I ever could have imagined -- and I know you will too.  So if you feel like you’re burning the candle at both ends, tune in to this episode for some peace of mind, and to hear firsthand how I’ve created a successful business without sacrificing what’s most important.

It’s taken a lot of hard work and late nights burning the midnight oil to become what it is today -- and it's all paid off because we recently hit a MAJOR milestone -- 1 million downloads in a single month. That’s almost DOUBLE the downloads from the previous month! I’m beyond proud of my team, and so incredibly grateful for our listeners!  But like anything, achieving this goal took a willingness to try something that we’ve never done before, and as always, a little bit of trial and error. Luckily, our perfect storm of strategies worked like a charm, and I am so excited to share them with you in this episode.  Whether you have a podcast now or are looking to start one soon, this episode will give you a step-by-step playbook on how to increase your downloads in a really big way.  I share the exact steps of what I did -- not only covering the strategies themselves but everything from the software we used, to where we placed ads -- so grab a pen and paper because you’re definitely going to want to take notes. Here’s a glance at this episode... [07:57] In December of 2021, we went from being just shy of 600,000 downloads to over one million in January.  [08:42] Strategy #1: We created a quiz that made a curated playlist for listeners. We used Interact to make the quiz, created a landing page for the quiz, and directed listeners to podcasts that would best help them using a PDF.  [14:14] Strategy #2: We did two types of ads during our promo week.  [17:32] Strategy #3: We used Instagram Live for Coffee and Coaching. During the live coaching, I was plugging the quiz.  [20:53] Strategy #4: We were strategic about our promo email sequence – making sure to keep our subscribers engaged.  [22:49] Strategy #6: We drove visitors from our website to our promo using a pop-up box and a sky bar banner. [25:06] Strategy #7: We got scrappy and sent out an email to our students and asked them to help us reach that 1 million mark. If you are a student who helped, I greatly appreciate it! [28:37] Strategy #8: Be super intentional about what episode or episodes you release during your promo week. We wanted a big-name guest and that was my friend Brendon Burchard. [35:30] Action items: Pull out your calendar and select a few dates that would be good for a promo like this!
