I wanted to talk to you today about delegating and leveraging more in your business.

When I talk to entrepreneurs about delegating, many of them tune me out. Why? Because they are doing it all themselves!!!!

For those of you who are doing it all yourself, STOP!

Let me share some ideas with you on why you would WANT to delegate. Some of you may have tried to delegate before and maybe it didn’t work out well. I get that. You see, I’ve been delegating for about 14 years in my business and in the beginning, I didn’t know what I was doing. I made so many mistakes like hiring the wrong people, micro-managing projects that I had assigned to them, or I re-did work that they performed for me.

I had to learn from my mentors and others that I hired HOW to delegate effectively. Many entrepreneurs are not experts in HR or how to train an independent contractor.

Don’t feel bad if you don’t know how to delegate effectively now. But you need to learn how to if you want to leverage your business. If you are a business owner, you need to have someone to help.

What will happen if you get sick or if medical issues arise?

What will you do when you want to take a vacation?

If you don’t have a team, you will not be able to make money when unforeseen contingencies come up. I have had some clients tell me that they’ve never taken a vacation the entire time they’ve been in business – for several years!

Listen up! Life is too short and as an entrepreneur, you need to have some fun. You need to have some down time (a vacation).

You have to embrace delegating.

Unless you have a brick and mortar store or location and where you need to hire employees, most business owners can use the services of independent contractors called Virtual Assistants.

Click here to learn more about what you need to know once you’ve decided “It’s Time You Started Delegating”

So PLEASE – Stop Waiting To Delegate! You need to know the BIG PICTURE of all of the strategies you need in your business. But you don’t need to know or spend your time learning how to do all of the things you need to do in your business.

I’ve created a Checklist that includes over 40 tasks or activities you could potentially delegate and should consider outsourcing to a Virtual Assistant or to a person other than YOU. Take a look at this Checklist to see what’s possible. Copy it into a Word document, then add tasks or activities that are specific to what you do in your business or delete the things that are not applicable to your business.

I also share in this free report info on what your next steps should be, where to find the people you need, how to get them in place, etc. Just go to JumpstartYourTeam.com to get your copy. It’s FREE!

Today my Idea in the Shower was What If People Charged What They Were Worth?

What if your hourly rate, your package price, or your annual program, or whatever you do was priced really high? I hate to see that some of you are NOT charging what you are worth for your services or products.

When people ask me what they should charge for their program, I answer that “you should charge as much as you can without stuttering”.

So let’s talk about pricing today!

I’ve found that many people starting out look at the marketplace, their competitors’ prices, and they charge something similar or many times, lower, because they are new to the business. That’s not the best thing to do!

For example, many times people who have the education and training needed in an industry but who are new entrepreneurs charge less than someone who has been an entrepreneur in that same industry for a longer period of time, but without the same level of training! Just because they’ve been in business longer doesn’t mean they are better. These new entrepreneurs should be charging what they are worth right out of the gate! They can still negotiate custom packages and pricing or beta test pricing with a lower price. When you are starting out, you need to get some clients to try your service or product; you need to get feedback and testimonials – people who like what you offer and have good things to say about you (so you can get more clients, right).

You need to start thinking outside the box about your pricing!

Ideas in the Shower Episode #3:  Podcasting

For those of you who didn’t know, I used to have a radio show on Blog Talk Radio with many followers. But once that show ran its course and I haven’t replaced it (yet) with another radio show or podcast, but…

I am starting up my new podcast very soon and my Ideas today were about what to name it. I’m trying to come up with the best name for it, something cutting edge. It dawned on me to ask for you, my followers; to give me some input on what you think is the best name for my new podcast.

I have several brands such as Jumpstart Your Marketing and Love Money to name a couple. I’ve thought about naming the podcast something similar to the name of some of my Events, like Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend or my Love and Money Live event.

My ultimate goal for being in business is to help others create a BIGGER LIFE for themselves. And a Big Life to me means more Love in your Life, more Money in your Business and living bigger – whatever that means to you!

Click the video to learn more about my Brands and my “Ideas in the Shower” about naming my podcast.

 

What kind of feedback can you give me?

Share in the comments below!

Interested in coming to my Live Event in November? Just go to the LiveBigEvents.com page to get the details of my Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend event or head over to JumpstartYourBizinaWeekend.com. Time’s running out to register, so don’t wait. This event is more like a training event so check out the benefits you’ll receive by attending.

If you are an entrepreneur who is really trying to ramp up your business and especially if you are in the first 5 years of your business, this is my Special Invitation for you to join us at my November LIVE Event because it will be perfect for YOU!

I talk to many entrepreneurs and they tell me they listen to podcasts, sign up for webinars, they watch You Tube videos, and opt in to several people’s email lists to get GREAT INFORMATION and to learn more about how to create a profitable business.

Does this sound like you?

Have you signed up to dozens of email lists and are you listening to a variety of several people’s podcasts, videos, webinars, etc?

Guess What? That’s a lot of learning!

Know What? Many people who do this find they are spending their time learning but NOTHING IS GETTING DONE! They are not getting further in their business because they are not TAKING the TIME to implement all they’ve learned into their business so they can have a smooth running, consistent money making business.

Inconsistency is a problem that many business owners deal with. And here’s the rub. If you are following several mentors and trying to implement several different philosophies or strategies, you’ll be getting inconsistent or conflicting information.

I’ve been working in marketing and sales for over 15 years now and in my opinion, you need to pick only ONE mentor! Sure, it’s fine to go to a few other events here and there, but I’m recommending you shut off all of the different tele-classes, unsubscribe to some of those lists or put them in a separate folder so you don’t get sidetracked by that BRIGHT SHINY OBJECT SYNDROME.

What you need is help and direction with the order of importance for you and your business. You need someone who can look at the BIG PICTURE of all the things you are currently doing in your business as well as the things you want to be doing several years from now. Perhaps you need to start taking BABY STEPS toward making your business more profitable and it could be that you need to take GIANT LEAPS.

Click the Video below to listen to my “Special Invitation For You…” to learn more about why picking one mentor is more beneficial to you and your business.

 

Are you Ready to work with someone who can see the BIG PICTURE of your business, where it is now and guide you what to do to make it grow and be more profitable? This is my PASSION! AND you will get the type of direction I’ve shared with you in these video tips whether you work with me one on one, or if you are in my LIVE BIG MASTERMIND or if you come to one of my LIVE EVENTS!

You can invest 3 days and get the direction and focus to get super clear on what you are doing and see the options of whatever is possible. GROW through your comfort zone to stretch yourself to DO MORE, BE MORE, REACH MORE PEOPLE and make a lot MORE MONEY doing WHAT YOU LOVE!

If this has resonated with you today, I want you to do these 3 things:

    1. Stop listening to so many different people. Get rid of too much information overload because what you really need is a Focused Path of Action.
    2. If you want to work with me or to find out how I can help you, come to a call with me. It’s not a hard sales call, seriously! You’re going to get some great ideas (FREE) and we can both see if working together might be a good fit! Get your free complimentary business strategy session by clicking here: http://www.AskKat.biz.
    3. Come to my LIVE EVENT – JumpstartYourBizinaWeekend.com – November 3rd, 4th, & 5th in Sacramento. I encourage you to register for one of my live events sooner than later because if you are like many entrepreneurs, you need to make more money NOW!

If you are unable to attend my November Live Event but are interested in a future event, you can get information and schedule of my future events at LiveBigEvents.com

But if you are Ready to Jumpstart Your Business, I hope to see you sooner than later!

Talk to You Again Soon!

I want to share some tips with you about Live Events and how to host your own Live Events. While networking in my local area, I’ve noticed that there are more people who are hosting their own Events.

But first, I want to let you know that I’m sharing a bunch of new free gifts on my website – there are currently 12 of them – that address a variety of topics.  Just head over to the JumpstartYourMarketing.com website and go to the “Resources” page.  You’ll find a page where I’ve listed my Recommended Vendors; people who can help you with a variety of tasks like shopping carts, email marketing, etc.  AND there is also a page where you’ll find my FREE GIFTS.   Go check it out!

Now back to my tips about Hosting Your Live Event…

I’m frequently asked about how to host live events by people who may or may not have been coached on this important topic. It’s clear to me who hasn’t received coaching on hosting live events and I’m sure these people are not getting the results they had expected.

I’ve been to many different types of events – some have been extravagant, attended by many people where we were treated to free food and drink. Yes, they were phenomenal! But for most of us entrepreneurs, we need to have the end result in mind when we plan our events.

How will we or can we make the event profitable?

One of the biggest profit killers of a live event budget is providing too much food and beverage and/or the number of rooms blocked off in the hotel where the event is being held, if you don’t have enough people signing up at your event.

There are many ways to have an engaging and exciting event without spending too much money or blowing up your budget. For those who are just starting to hold events, my advice is: You need to be practical.  And that’s the kind of advice and guidance I provide when coaching people who are holding live events.  Keep the end result in mind – Keep it profitable.

Click the video to hear more tips about “Hosting Your Own Events – Do’s and Don’ts!”

 

I would love to talk to you more about how to hosting your own live event. This is a topic I discuss what to do and how to manage a live event as one of the business models you can implement in your business at MY Live Events. My live events are somewhat intimate with approximately 60 attendees. There is networking and spot coaching involved as well as loads of training. My next event is November 3, 4, and 5th, 2017 and it’s being held in the Sacramento area. I’ve been holding this event for several years and it’s AMAZING! This is my Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend Intensive event. We covered so many of the topics you need to get your business off the ground and make it profitable quickly. I’ll cover several different types of marketing strategies and business models. I show you several ways to do things. Join us at this next event. Just go to LiveBigEvents.com to see all of the juicy details and reserve your spot.

It’s all about building the life you love on your terms. Hope to see you there.

Ever feel like you were stuck in your business or personal life? Do you need motivation to make a change?

Have you felt like you are struggling to get things going so you can get ahead?  Sure, we’ve all had “one of those days”. But recently I’ve discovered there are many business owners out there who need more motivation and guidance to get unstuck. They seem to be struggling with doing the things they need to do to make changes to move their businesses forward.

I’ve been there, believe me. Since I’ve been in business, things seem to progress faster and it’s sometimes hard to keep up with technology that has changed dramatically.  I know how hard it is to find balance when you are working to uplevel yourself, your knowledge or skills, create programs, find new clients and still make time for myself and my family and friends.  I’ve been there – where many of you are right now.

But today, I can’t complain because I’ve had a consistent flow of new clients without having to work as hard as I used to. I no longer have to focus on “making a sale” or “getting a new client” every week or every day.

It is so empowering at this stage in business when people come to you because you are seen as the expert. So, I’m here today to motivate you and let you know that you too can make it to this stage of your business. You just need the right kind of help.

If you are having a hard time right now trying to get clients; if you are struggling with technology or the things you need to do to move your business forward, I want you to realize that it can all be a little easier for you someday soon. And someday soon can come a LOT sooner than you may realize if you just reach out for advice, resources and training.

Seriously, getting the advice, resources and training that was needed, whether in business or personal life, is the ONLY way that I’ve finally gotten to where I’ve gotten in my business and boy, let me tell you, I am by no means done stretching and growing!

I know that sometimes it’s just the smallest tweak or the simplest shift in your business, your marketing, your mindset or your life in general that can catapult you into a place where are you the happiest you’ve ever been while making a lot more money doing what you love.

I want you to know that YOU CAN DO THIS!

You can be happy and in love in your personal life with the perfect and ideal significant other that you need (and deserve) while making a whole lot of money doing the business of your dreams, doing what you love and making a huge impact on those you serve.

So, whether it’s one of my new free gifts or if you plan to attend one of my live training events or you finally stop for a moment to fill out the short little questionnaire that will get you in to speak with me, I urge you to stop waiting. I’m ready to Motivate and Inspire you get going to be the happy doing what you love and to show you what you need to do to get there!

Talk to You Soon!

Ready to get back to business?

Our kiddo is back in school and things seem to be chugging along again… got to finally go camping WITH Jason and Riley last weekend in Yosemite rather than just seeing photos of their nature excursions. That was nice…. although I was reminded of how nice hotels are. LOL (that’s me in the very background relaxing… our dog Willow and Riley), what a great spot right?

So yes, I have been traveling quite a bit this year and sometimes I get FOMO, do you?
FOMO = Fear of Missing Out
I get that when I’m not home and missing my family and other get-togethers and I get it when there’s a fun event that I didn’t get to attend too, both give me FOMO. But you can’t be everywhere all the time right?
I’m trying to get back on an emailing schedule though, I dropped back a little bit because I’ve been switching shopping carts, email marketing systems and entire backend database systems in my company. When you switch these kind of systems though there can always be some tech issues which I’ve had plenty of. But thankfully I have AN AWESOME techy team!!
Most issues have now been resolved and I’m grateful for having the technology and Internet access to HAVE issues with! Can you imagine what it would be like without these things now that we’re so used to having them?
Meanwhile… I’ve been a bit remiss in sharing that my next event is OPEN FOR REGISTRATIONS and there are only 50 seats left! (many of my clients and returning attendees have filled up spots already)
I’m not sure what you need right now regarding your business, or technology but if you know you need more systems online to keep you from working so hard to get clients and increased cash flow then you may want to come have a chat with me or attend my next event!
We also show you how to automate, delegate and systematize in your business. And we work on all the main revenue generating activities that all small business owners should be doing so you can implement more of those each month and make more money!
My events are more like “trainings”, they are not hypy salesy, multi-speaker events you know…. If you have never been it will be a welcome surprise what you find at these events.
Everyone always reports on my feedback forms that they love the “energy” in the room, they like how I tell-it-like-it-is and share feedback and advice with them right on the spot. We really do get stuff done, it’s very interactive, plus a lot of my attendees sell their stuff too and make money while they’re there!
Go find out more about the next one which is called the Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend, happening November 3, 4, & 5 at  www.JumpstartYourBizinaWeekend.com!
The JumpStart Your Biz ‘In a Weekend’ Event is all about being able to:
  • Identify more deeply what you really want in life, your biggest passions and how to express them through an authentic-based, money-making  business model.
  •  Put your marketing on autopilot – so you have more time in your life to LIVE and ENJOY your life; what matters most to you.
  •  Create your systematic marketing and follow up system so you are constantly keeping in touch with your clients, prospects and contacts – online and  offline.
  •  Create new and easy additional sources of income such as ebooks, home study kits, audios and more… in 30 days or less (the key to lead generation  and credibility)
  •  Leverage your message into high-end coaching and program offerings, joint venture opportunities, memberships and more advanced products and  services … so you maximize your revenue per hour spent AND your impact on the world!
  •  Learn how to incorporate and monetize speaking opportunities, guest appearances, publicity, radio shows, video, social media, writing a book to  highlight yourself as the expert you are and so much more.

Who is this event for?

 

It’s for Entrepreneurs, Coaches, Consultants, Speakers, Authors, Healers, Service Professionals, Non-Traditional Experts, anyone in any industry who is frustrated with how their business is progressing or confused and overwhelmed with all there is to do, implement, learn, etc. and who want to Get Clear, Get a Roadmap & Get Moving!​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Go find out more about the Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend, happening November 3, 4, & 5 at  www.JumpstartYourBizinaWeekend.com!
I’ll see you there!
