“...1500+ people signed up for my newsletter during the one week challenge. And the response from participants has blown me away.”
-- Rachelle Doorley, Build Your Challenge participant
Let’s face it: Trying to increase your reach and share your life-changing message in the online business world can feel like a constant battle uphill.
So. Much. Noise.
Do any of these sound familiar?
- You know you have a great product or service… but no one knows about it. (
- You’re sick of trying to “build your list” or “monetize your blog.” (That just ain’t you, babe!)
- You already have a community, but struggle to make money from it. (
Raising your hand? No shame! I’ve been there, done that… And I was determined to find a different way.
Hey there, love -- I’m Jadah.
Way back in 2012, my partner and I launched Simple Green Smoothies with a mission to put our dent in the universe.
Being good students of the Internet, we offered that good ol’ free eBook opt-in (maybe you’ve tried that too…?). It was “mmm-kay,” helping to grow our email list to 2K subscribers. Not bad… but not the impact we were looking to make!
We offered our first, free 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge. Ummm, can you say “rocket fuel?!” Within a month, our list to 30K subscribers! Now we’re talking!
Just to make sure that wasn’t some kind of cosmic coincidence, we ran a few more challenges that year. No coincidence!
My scientific conclusion: CHALLENGES ROCK!
Not only are they a great way to provide something of real value.. they’re also an incredible way to nurture your connection with your community and build that good ole’ “know – like – trust” factor.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering… YES, the list growth translated directly to revenue:
More Challenges → Larger Community → More “Cha-Ching”
Once others saw the exponential growth we were having, they started to say, “Hey, what’s IN those green smoothies?” And we started sharing the power of challenges… which leads me here today.
I LOVE helping other hard-working, amazing, heart-centered entrepreneurs and all-around lovely people discover how you can supercharge your own business, in a simple, fun, and authentic way.

What Other Lovelies Are Saying About Build Your Challenge:
“We completed our first challenge using your course and made over $30k in sales online + retail sales"
“We completed our first challenge using your course and made over $30k in sales online + retail sales (and we did not even have a revenue goal at all).
We also say more people join our FB group in 10 days than we have had in any single month this year and a 26% increase in active members. And there was a 50% engagement rate with emails.
And the stuff we can't see in metrics.. we believe that there has been an even greater impact. This is certainly going to be the gift that will keep on giving.” --Zeni Bandy, BYC Participant
"Running free challenges has hands down been the absolute best thing I’ve done for my food blog!"
"Running free challenges has hands down been the absolute best thing I’ve done for my food blog! Not only has it grown my email list to over 45,000 and helped sell eBooks but it has grown an engaged community that I didn’t have before. Taking Jadah’s Build Your Challenge Course was so helpful and provided the framework I needed to plan and run my first challenge…it took all the guesswork out of planning, helped me identify the pain points of my participants so that I could help them, and really set me off on the right path!" --Denise Bustard, BYC Participant + Private Client
“1500+ people signed up for my newsletter during the one week challenge…”
“Over 700 people joined the private Facebook group that I set up for my challenge. 1500+ people signed up for my newsletter during the one week challenge. And the response from participants has blown me away. They loved the experience of it, and I owe this to how well Jadah presented the blueprint for running a challenge that works.” - Rachelle Doorley, BYC Participant
“It's like you handed me a complete personalized challenge in a box. …”
“I am excited to say that I was able to create a FULL challenge plan, complete with copy for the challenge page on my website. I have every single detail mapped out, with nothing left to figure out! It's like you handed me a complete personalized challenge in a box. So awesome. I would absolutely recommend this course to others. Building a challenge is an overwhelming prospect, and Jadah's program made it totally manageable. By the time it's done, you literally have a challenge ready to go. (If you do the work, that is.)" - Stephanie Stiavetti, BYC Participant
“The challenge feels much more ‘me…’”
“Well I just opened registration yesterday, and I've got about 30 people signed up so far. The challenge feels much more "me" than the webinar approach I had been using, which was too intense and less personal. It feels more interactive and less salesy.” - Lane Rebelo, BYC Participant
“Grew my email list by 500+ with more joining every day.”
“Grew my email list by 500+ with more joining every day. Adding 500+ is pretty awesome for two weeks time for me! I love, though, that those are 500+ who are actively engaging through email, that we have testimonials rolling right in. They are so flipping heart-warming! It's feeling awesome to be making an impact in more people's lives… Jadah really helped me give myself permission to go heavy into community and relationship building, which feels awesome...I actually love metrics, lol, but I love relationships more.” --Lauren Bellon, BYC Participant
