303: Beyond the Titles: Who is the Real Ed Mylett?
The cover art for the Ed Mylett Show shows a sunglass-wearing Ed, a guy who clearly spends some time in the gym walking with swagger you can sense through the photo, and his private jet and Bentley providing the backdrop. Who IS this guy? Ed Mylett’s podcast is consistently holding down the top 50 on Apple Podcasts and he is in the Top 50 Wealthiest under 50. Ed decided from a young age that if he was going to work for a living, he was going to work for himself and call his own shots. He is a leading speaker in the business space and with his podcast and YouTube channel teaches millions how to elevate and maximize their lives. We sat down for a conversation at his Laguna Beach home a few months ago and I’ll be honest, it’s not often I invite men to the show, but Ed’s story is so interesting to me. We kick off this episode with a question no one’s ever asked him before: Who is Ed Mylett beyond the titles? And his answer truly shocked me. Ed Mylett is getting the Goal Digger treatment.

302: How to Deal with Difficult Clients, Refunds, and Unsatisfied Shoppers
Negative reviews. Angry emails. Refund requests. Stubborn or needy clients. Snippy social media comments. Passive aggressive communication. If you own a business, you've dealt with some, if not all of these -- I’m talking about negative feedback from customers or clients, and if you're a human, you know it never feels good. But rather than harping on the criticism, moping in feelings of rejection, or lashing out against the naysayers, I want to walk you through the exact system my team and I use to deal with unsatisfied customers, negative feedback, and refunds. That's right… In true Jenna Kutcher fashion, we've created a system around even the touchiest of subjects: refunds, feedback, and criticism. And honestly, it was probably one of our smartest moves.

300: How to Hit Your Profit Goals Through Price Setting
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. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY:
299: Have a College Degree but It's Not Your Passion? Listen to this.
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. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY:
