910. Where The Woo Meets The Work w/ Jenna Kutcher

I’m joined by Jenna Kutcher, author of the new book How Are You Really, and host of The Goal Digger Podcast. Jenna’s book is a guided journey through asking yourself how you really are, who you really are, and what kind of life you really want. Jenna and I discuss how to become more aligned with your true purpose, understand who you are as you’re developing, and show up as your whole self in everything that you do. 

I’ve always admired how fierce Jenna is with her boundaries and how she protects her peace in such a loving way. We dive into how she copes with people pushing back on her limits and she shares her incredible template that has allowed her to say ‘no’ in a kind, gracious way. We talk about the concept of having a ‘Year of Yes’ and Jenna offers up a unique and inspiring spin on the idea. Tune in to hear our conversation about celebrating your ambitions, enjoying the journey to success, and so much more.
