5 Reasons to Create a Digital Product or Course
Well, I’m still waiting on baby #3 to arrive, so I decided to “birth” one more podcast episode before I take a short break from the show for maternity leave!
Today I’m talking about why you should create a digital product or course. This episode applies if you have a service-based business like I do, if you’re a doctor or consultant, or even if you own a local, brick and mortar business.
Obviously, the online space for business has grown immensely this past year. People are more comfortable than ever handing over their money to learn from someone online. So the opportunity to sell your knowledge and expertise in the form of an online product or course is huge.
About 4 years ago, I launched my first online program, Amplify. I just recently revamped the entire program, which you can hear more about in my previous episode about how to stop procrastinating and get stuff done.
Redoing my own course reminded me what a powerful tool online programs can be for entrepreneurs, so tune in for my top 5 reasons to launch an online product or course.

How To Quit Procrastinating And Get Stuff Done
We all have those things that are on our to-do list that get carried over week to week to week, or into the month, or even into the next year.
In today’s episode, I’m sharing all about how to finally stop procrastinating on those things and how to GET STUFF DONE!
You know the saying, “if you want something done, ask a busy person to do it?” Well, I think you could also say “if you want something done, ask a pregnant woman to do it!”
I’m just a couple weeks out from my due date with baby #3 (not to mention I’ve been anticipating an early labor for a couple weeks now), add to that spring cleaning season… and these nesting vibes are out of this world!
I’m going to share this kind of funny example for you but obviously, I don’t recommend getting pregnant in order to be productive - while effective, it’s not exactly the easiest way to get things done.
So tune in and I’ll share my 3 tips (technically 4 tips) to finally stop putting things off and instead, getting things done.
And if this was helpful, please share it with someone else who could use this advice and tag me @emilyrichett so I can cheer you on! I really appreciate the support and wish you the best in tackling those big projects.

Harnessing the Power of Your Anxiety with Dr. Chloe Carmichael
If you’re a high performer, and I’m guessing you are, you’ve probably achieved a good amount of success but still find yourself feeling a sense of lack, or unhappiness. If so, then this episode is for you.
Today I’m talking with Dr. Chloe Carmichael, the author of the new book (out this month) called Nervous Energy: Harness the Power of Your Anxiety.
She holds a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Long Island University, and her practice focuses on stress management, relationship issues, and self-esteem.
We talk about how I’ve always felt nervous energy has been a big helper in my life and in my career. But as I’ve gotten older, and definitely in becoming a mom, I can see the downside and even just habitual patterns of nervous energy that aren’t the healthiest.
I never really considered how to best harness that so-called nervous energy and anxiety and to funnel it in a better way, and that’s what Dr. Chloe and I talk about it in the episode. She offers some simple tactics that you can implement right away, like her concept of “worry time” or the “to-do list with emotions.”
All of this is a big focus of her book, which you can grab at nervousenergybook.com.

We recently did publicity for Diapertainment, her innovative parenting solution for squirmy diaper changes.

The Common Path To Uncommon Success With John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneurs on Fire
Today on the show I’m talking with John Lee Dumas, the award winning host of Entrepreneurs on Fire.
I’ve had JLD on the show before, and I’ve been on his podcast. I call JLD the godfather of podcasting because he was one of the first to really focus on the entrepreneur niche in podcasts.
Today John and I talk about his newest book The Common Path to Uncommon Success. As someone who has interviewed thousands of high-achievers, you can bet he’s learned a few things about carving the uncommon path. I always enjoy his perspective-- it reminds me of my background as a news reporter, when I interviewed more than 6,000 people doing great things. You do learn a ton from others when you have that opportunity.
So JLD put his lessons and strategies into a book as a roadmap for the rest of us. He also has some incredible bonuses if you pre-order at UncommonSuccessBook.com.
Topics discussed: How people have been lied to by the 'experts' in the online business world What do we really want to achieve? 17-step roadmap to financial freedom and fulfillment JLD’s new book, The Common Path to Uncommon Success Connect with JLD: Website Instagram Pre-order the book Connect with me: Website Instagram Facebook This episode first appeared at emilyrichett.com/episode-40.

Katya talks about how she started HeyMama, her background and moving to the US when she was 3, and we talk about the importance of community- both in business and personally.

Informational and inspirational!
If you are looking for an inspirational and informational podcast, this is definitely the one you should try! Emily is a very conversational host with guests who are sharing wisdom and strategies for helping others become their “best selves”!
Focused and Easy to Listen
One of my favorite podcasts! Emily does an excellent job balancing being conversational and entertaining while getting right down to business and packing in content. So many podcasts that I’ve listened to have extra small talk or tangents and it can be frustrating to listen to when I just want to hear their content.
Emily offers great insight!
If you're an entrepreneur who is looking to grow their business then I highly recommend listening to The Amplify Show!
