From Career Burnout to Red Hot Blaze: Jenna’s Story
As a wedding photographer, Kutcher reigned #1 in the state of Wisconsin for multiple years. She was earning a six-figure income and attracting tons of attention within the industry, garnering accolades and press that kept a steady stream of hopeful clients coming her way. But, with work taking center stage, she began noticing the early stages of burnout. Not content to let her personal life suffer from nonstop productivity, she decided to pivot and reduce her workload by half for the next year, even if it meant only earning half the income.
Turning down bookings created space in Kutcher’s calendar and life for other resources to bloom – like time, creativity, recreation, relationships, and self-care. With new inspiration ablaze, Kutcher invested portions of her newfound assets into developing a broader-based social media presence. “In 2018, I did an experiment,” she says. “I challenged myself to show my face on my Instagram for 30 days straight.” It was a sweet surprise when the results were in, revealing her growth doubled and engagement tripled in one month. “It made me understand that people care about the creator, not just the creation,” she points out. “I started to feel confident about showing who I am and what I’m about, and in talking about things other than just work.”
Creating a Digital Legacy
Kutcher has an affection for Instagram, admitting she views it as a legacy. She enjoys scrolling and taking in all the memories. But, she prioritizes living a life that is far better offline than online. She aims for balance – publicly, digitally, she shares little glimpses of her life and connects with people. Then, she signs off and dives into the best part, living and enjoying a large, beautiful life.
Now earning a seven-figure income, Kutcher’s impressive digital footprint boasts a blog, a podcast, and a suite of courses that includes her best how-tos and advice on creating a healthy web presence. FYI – Her Goal Digger Podcast is the number one marketing podcast with over 500 episodes and over 65 million downloads.
Her Key to Success
Kutcher believes anything is possible when “the work meets the woo.” She is no stranger to paying her dues and putting in the hard work, yet she believes just as strongly in the power of visualization, presence, and mindful habits. Daily, her inspiring content helps others launch new businesses, develop side hustles, and integrate wellness into their work with the same mobility and balance she prizes so highly.
Her debut book, How Are You, Really?, launches in June 2022 and is already abuzz with glowing reviews from today’s top tastemakers, leaders, influencers, and thought-leaders. Jamie Kern Lima, New York Times bestselling author of Believe IT and founder of IT Cosmetics, says “[Jenna’s book] is your personal guide to cut straight through the noise, distraction and busyness around you, and start living your life with intention, courage and purpose! It’s your permission slip to reflect, refocus and reshape your destiny.”
