Here's the question of 2020: How do you start dreaming again when life throws you a curve ball? Is it even possible to get back to building the rocket ship that was supposed to be your life when that ship seems to crash and completely destroy your hopes, dreams, or plans? To help answer such a loaded question, Jordan brought on New York Times Bestselling Author, Nonprofit Founder, Chief Balloon Inflator, and Motivational Speaker, Bob Goff.

Have you ever thought about how much authority being an author could give you when it comes to your industry or expertise? Ever dreamed about sharing your story with the world but hesitated when it came to writing a book simply because you’re not sure how or where to start? It’s one thing to dream about one day writing a book. It’s another thing to actually write the dang thing. And it’s a whole other thing entirely to find people who want to read your book! It can be a little overwhelming. You have words and experiences the world needs to hear. And you don't need to hold back any longer just because you're not sure where to start.  Tune into this episode as Jordan discusses this with Michelle Prince. Michelle Prince is the best-selling author of her first book, “Winning In Life Now" and is a highly sought after Zig Ziglar Motivational Speaker. She has gone on to author dozens of additional books and products in the areas of achievement, motivation, productivity and success.

You’ve got a talent people will pay you for. You’re fired up about it. You’re ready to go. And just as you’re about to accept your first payment (Cha-Ching!), you panic! “Am I doing this legally?” you wonder. “Do I need to be doing something more official for Cheryl to pay me?” “LLC? Federal Tax ID? Do I need all these just to get started?” Look, all the legal mumbo-jumbo can slow us down. If you don’t know the right next step to take, and don’t have don’t have a professional to trust to help you out, it’s easy to get stuck.

Would you quit your job to run 30 Marathons, in 30 countries, before your 30th birthday all with the goal of raising money for organizations committed to empowering women? Sounds like a pretty BIG step outside a comfort zone, huh? Look, if 2020 has taught us ANYTHING, it's that we need to be willing to get outside of our comfort zone, learn, listen, and take steps to impact the world outside of our own personal bubble. In this episode, Jordan talks with Liz Warner who did JUST that. Liz combined her passions of change-making and adventure and launched Run to Reach, an 18-month marathon fundraising campaign with the goal of running 30 marathons in 30 different countries before turning 30 in June of 2020 - aiming to raise $100,000 to support local, women-empowerment organizations in each country visited. She ventured to far-reaching destinations, like through the central highlands of Afghanistan, across turquoise waters in Yemen, into the depths of small villages in Somalia, and up the rolling foothills of Mt. Everest. Beyond the highlighted mission, her Run to Reach journey also tells the story of a woman who left a comfortable, yet unfulfilling job to embark on an adventure that would exhaust every ounce of her potential. Through her stories, she's been intentional to not only give back but also use social media as a tool to expose people to cultures they may otherwise not be exposed to (Yemen, Afghanistan, etc.). Tune in to learn how we can take first steps outside our comfort zone for the purpose of having a greater impact, and what that may look like in your life.  Learn more about Liz and follow her journey by visiting her website: or follow her on Instagram:

What can homemade soup teach us about starting a side-hustle? A whole heckuva lot, actually. Look, sometimes the options available to us aren’t the best options for us. Or maybe they’re just straight up not good for us. What do we do? Do we settle for them or do we get creative, roll our sleeves up, and make something new from scratch? We are in a time where so many of us are being dared to roll up our sleeves, get creative, and find other ways to get what we need rather than just being able follow the status quo. In fact, one of the most commonly asked questions we receive is, "How do I start something from scratch?

Have you been trying to tap into your creativity or skills, and finding ways to make income with it, even if that’s just in your spare time?  Thought about freelancing or using your talents to make supplemental income on the side… only to let your nerves, or all that you don’t know, get the best of you? It’s one thing to have a little dream, idea, or even straight up need for extra income… it’s another thing to actually take that first step into going for it! It’s scary to put yourself out there and start doing something new, especially something that feels uncertain or risky...especially in a very volatile time like this! We often hear it talked about like, “go big, or go home,” but Jordan just started small, from home, technically. And she found that doesn’t have to be nearly as overwhelming as it seems.

Money woes can slow us down. If you don’t have clarity or plan when it comes to your finances, it’s common to feel stressed and overwhelmed. The uncertainty coupled with the common, underlying need to “keep up with the Jones’” only makes matters worse. But sometimes hearing how other people just like us have navigated getting out of debt and found financial freedom is the kick in the pants we need to pave our own way to total financial freedom. On this episode of SHE, we’re diving into this with Debt-Free Living Enthusiast, Jessi Fearon, and tackling big important questions like: What are some mindsets to adopt to help us stick to a plan to getting out of debt? What are some practical steps we can take when we’re just getting started on our own journey to financial freedom? When growing a family and paying off debt simultaneously, what is the hardest sacrifice and how can we get through it? How can living debt-free change our spending habits long term? Plus, Jessi serves up some great advice for those wanting to take ownership of their finances and attain a debt-free life but struggle with commitment. Sister, there is no better time to take control of your finances than right now. When you know your numbers and have a plan to complete financial freedom, you won’t just feel confident – you’ll be empowered to make better decisions for your future, too.
Be Honest: Have you had to combat a lot of feelings of fear, confusion, and disappointment recently? You're not the only one! So many are feeling massive disappointment that has come as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. Brides have had to cancel their weddings.  College seniors won’t get to have their commencement ceremony. Athletes won’t get to finish out their seasons. People who relied on their jobs for a stable source of income have had that taken away. It’s absolutely heartbreaking to see not only the number of cases and those affected by the illness but also the vast repercussions it has caused beyond the virus itself. So, that’s what we’re tackling in this episode. We’re going to dive into facing disappointments... then we’re going to rally to find the courage, confidence, and class it takes to move forward when plans royally fall apart.
In weird and uncertain times, it can be tough to stay committed to your goals. As if we don't already overthink the things we hope to do, uncertain or difficult times can make it even harder not to give up! So in this episode, Jordan called in an expert, a Clinical Neuropsychologist who literally wrote the book on helping people overcome self-sabotage, Dr. Judy Ho. If you’re having a hard time staying committed to your dreams, goals, or ideas, hold the phone on giving up just a little longer, and tune into this episode to learn: How to find what triggers your self-sabotage Tools to understand the patterns to your thoughts Techniques to be more empowered and in control of your thoughts Steps you can take to get out of the spiral of self sabotage once it starts And more To learn more about Dr. Judy Ho, or to get her book, visit After you listen, visit us over on and tell us which step or technique you’re going to try the next time you start to feel yourself sabotaging your goals, dreams, or commitments!

EVERY EXPERT WAS ONCE A BEGINNER.  Let that sink in. No, really, let it sink in until you believe it.  It is so essential to understand this one thing: NO ONE started out knowing what they were doing. No one who's built something successful began with a clue of what it would turn into. And no successful person has avoided embarrassing themselves or failure.  But the one key to success they all have in common? They STARTED. They started small. They rolled up their sleeves and got scrappy.  They were willing to get uncomfortable and put themselves out there.  THIS willingness (not skill or fancy connections) is the one differentiating factor between those who reach their dreams and those who don't. Tune into this episode to learn keys to starting before you're ready from the one and only Jess Ekstrom, founder of Headbands of Hope, and author of Chasing the Bright Side.  Headbands of Hope is a brand Jess started in college that has grown into a multi-million dollar company in just 7 years. In this conversation, Jess shared her biggest small business mistakes (like wiring $10,000 to a company she never heard back from) and scrappy steps she took to make her dream happen before she had the finances (like convincing Jimmy Johns to sponsor a product photo shoot), and so many more moments that will put you at ease, make you laugh, and give you the courage to stop worrying and just start where you are!  Ready to stop putting your dreams off for a tomorrow that isn't guaranteed?  Hit the play button.   Follow Jess here:
Have you ever looked up to someone who has built their dream career and assumed it was a straight shot from Point A to Point B? Ever wondered what the journey to creating and cultivating your dream career really looks like from the inside? More often than not, it's a very non-linear journey as one learns what works, what doesn't, what they like, and what they don't like so much. In this episode, Jordan shares a candid conversation (originally aired on the Heart and Hustle Podcast) with some of her business besties, Evie Rupp and Lindsey Roman, to discuss the very real journey that a gal can take as she pursues her purpose in life. Tune in to learn: 1) How to Know When It's Time to Pivot in Your Career 2) The Art of Pivoting Well When It's Time 3) How to Get Past Limiting Beliefs And Other People's Expectations for You 4) Healthier Ways to Think About Making Money as You Build Your Dreams And more!   Follow Lindsey and Evie here: @mrslindseyroman @evierupp
