CAN YOU GUESS? There’s one feature that Facebook seems to be pushing more than anything else. Like they’re even airing their first-ever Super Bowl commercial for this feature… Do you know what it is? Facebook Groups. Yup, Facebook is pushing Groups during the Super Bowl so if you’re not up on the best strategies for your Facebook Group, it’s time to step it up before kick-off.  Our girl, Dana Malstaff is the MVP of Facebook Groups. I asked her if she’d audit the Goal Digger Podcast Insiders Facebook Group and tell the world what we could be doing better in that group to serve YOU. She was up for the challenge.  If you have a group that needs new life or you’re just getting started, press play on this Facebook Group audit episode for the best advice to optimize your strategy.

Dean always helps me see myself and my business through a new lens — a wider angle but with a sharper focus. We are days away from 2020 and with all of this new energy and anticipation for a new year pouring in, I’m eager to chat with Dean so you can listen in on his advice, too. What does he see as my super power? What should I include in my 2020 goal list? If he were me, what would he do next? I’m putting myself on review with Dean because I think you’ll love hearing his advice, too. Press play right now. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: 
This episode feels like opening up my diary and sharing it with the world… Minus all the mushy love-y dovey stuff, of course!  It's time to talk numbers, what worked, what sucked, where I thrived and barely survived. I'm baring it all (in my cozy sweater in my closet) so that you can learn from my last 365 days. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: 
No. Nope. No, thank you. No way in heck.  Those are a few options you could use to turn down an opportunity that doesn’t quite align or interest you… But today’s guest is an expert in setting boundaries and saying no lovingly. Saying no with love. What does that sound like? I like to think I’m pretty good at setting boundaries and saying no. Actually, my calendar last year was as empty as it’s ever been. But Darrah’s template for saying no that she developed after getting rejected from Brene Brown is something I’m ready to steal for my own life and business. If you are ready to design your life by filling it with the right opportunities and saying no to the ones that don’t align, PRESS PLAY.

DECADE CHALLENGE: Do you recognize the YOU from 10 years ago? How the heck has another year come and gone? I’m feeling all sorts of nostalgia as we approach a new decade and I think it’s time to really reflect on the lessons I’ve learned, what’s gone well and moments I will always cherish. It’s just as important to me to dig into how I’ve messed up, how I’ve grown, pivoted, and transformed, too. This episode is all of that: I dig into what I’ve learned about defining success, the hustle mentality, the value of time, the hard seasons of life, and more. Press play right now and reflect with me. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: 
Our sweet baby girl is ONE! My husband and baby daddy Drew Kutcher is back on the Goal Digger Podcast for a special birthday edition of the show. We’re answering your questions about life, parenthood, marriage, business, and more.  I love that Conley will get to go back and listen to us talk about our first year keeping her alive. I hope she loves this episode as much as we do! Maybe she’ll feel a normal dose of embarrassment over her parents when she listens, but for now I’ll assume she thinks we’re AMAZING.  The surprising origin story of her name, what we’re doing as parents that we said we’d NEVER do, and how we’re keeping our marriage in focus with a little babe in the mix. Press play right now. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: 
It doesn't matter how successful, or driven, or hungry you are to reach the next level, we ALL hit lulls in our businesses at some point or another.  Often times, it's not even because of our actual business. Maybe our business is seasonal? Maybe we’ve been coasting or traveling the world? Maybe we're facing a heartache in our personal lives or financial troubles with our spouse. Or we’ve welcomed a new human into the family.   Whether you just thought what worked in the past would always work or life just got in the way, let’s talk about 5 ways to refresh a stale business. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES:  
I’m part of a SUPER exclusive club… The Mom Club.  I’m giggling as I write this because the super exclusive club is actually just a super long text thread with my friends Ashlyn Carter and Sarah Adler. Recognize those names? That’s because they’ve been on the show before. Last year, we all had babies at the same time so we’re getting The Mom Club together to talk about it.  Wonder what happened to our businesses after baby? This episode is like a peek into my group chat with these women. Press play right now. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: 
We’re at epidemic status in the business and entrepreneurial world. It's a mindset epidemic more than anything else. The creative- and entrepreneurial-minded often get held back by the belief that an idea has already been done, or the market is too saturated, so they shouldn't jump into a space they're interested in pursuing because too many people are already doing that thing.  If you've been held back by the fear that something's already been done, I want you to know that your individual approach, your unique background and one-of-a-kind experiences have NEVER been utilized and they will NEVER be utilized if you keep falling prey to this lie. There is enough to go around, there is room for you at the table and by the end of this episode, I hope you truly believe that, too. Press play right now.

BEHIND THE SCENES: What really happened when I flew my team first class to a retreat in Arizona… Part girls trip, part dreaming session, part spa retreat. My meet-up with this team of incredible women had it all, and WE want to take you behind the scenes.  For this episode recapping our team retreat, it only seems right to have my team lead you through what it was like, what we did, how it was structured, and what they got out of it. So get ready to hear from the voices who manage this show, answer your emails, write our content, and contribute to this business each day with their own superpowers.  By the end of it, I hope you take away a few ideas for connecting with your remote team and why a retreat just might be the thing you need to get to the next level. I’m so excited for you to meet them all.  GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: 
I’m about to tell you a big fat lie about your biggest, juiciest dream: You’re too late. There’s no time.  When you think of that ONE thing you'd love to accomplish if you had all the time, money, resources, and confidence to do it... what would it be? Okay, now think of that big dream and run through all the excuses you’ve fed yourself as to why you haven’t started yet. I’ll bet five bucks that “time” is at the top of the list. And it’s a big fat lie. If you've been debating with yourself whether it's too late to start, or whether you have enough resources, or if something else is holding you back from gripping your dream and finally just going for it -- This episode will convince you otherwise. Think of it as a warm hug paired with tangible advice to launch into your dream, once and for all.  GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: 
Having a hard time getting people on board with your business idea? Press play right now. My guest, Rea Ann Silva, can sympathize. But when her idea for the Beautyblender was shot down time after time, she learned how to make things happen on her own, finetuning her pitch along the way until finally she heard a YES. Actually, it was more like a “Yes, but…” I’ll let her tell the whole story.  Rea Ann is here to share her story of product development, of getting people to see her vision, and her advice for moving the needle forward even when life and distractions pull you away from your biggest goal. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: 
“All of our friends push way too hard and compromise way too much sanity.” Whew. What a statement. I was texting one of my mentors-turned-friends when he said that to me. We were talking about this past year in my business and personal life, I shared I’d worked the least but felt the most success. I was living out the scene of success I had in my head for so long.  The hustle mentality and culture that’s being crafted around entrepreneurship is making us believe that hustle equals happiness. But that’s the opposite of what I’ve encountered because I defined “enough” for myself along time ago.  What would it look like if you defined enough for you and your business, freed up time to explore your passions, side hustles, or just rest? How could that change your life? Let’s find your own threshold of success. Let’s ditch pushing too hard and compromising your sanity. This episode will help you master your own mindset and define “enough”. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: 
She survived a tiger shark attack at 13-years old and was back on her surfboard four weeks later.  She went on to inspire the world with her courage, dedication, athleticism, and fearlessness. That’s the unforgettable story we already know about Bethany Hamilton.  But there’s more about Bethany that you don’t know yet. There are chapters and seasons of Bethany’s life that left me completely in awe of everything she has pursued and accomplished. Ahem, Bethany just launched an online course… yup! How is that story that the world knows so well intertwined with the woman Bethany Hamilton is today? What is her relationship with fear? How does she redirect moments of comparison and “what if?” What is her world like now, as a mom and an athlete? This woman lives up to the title of her new film. Bethany Hamilton is truly “Unstoppable”. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES:

I literally listen to you on my drive or at home almost every single day and I can't tell you how much you've inspired me to just get things done! Overthinking is no longer a thing for me! Thank you for the constant motivation, from one female photographer to another. - Su

Good tips, but I don't think you are following this tips yourself. I had to unsubscribe from your email list twice, because it was just too much, email after email! And most if them were sell, sell, sell... too pushy! There needs to be a balance. I want an email which I want to read and enjoy.
