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.

  •  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!​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

It’s time to evolve your marketing plan and strategy, especially if you haven’t updated it in a while or if you have no real strategy at all.

Rough Pic of 2014 Conference Screen Shot

Being an entrepreneur in this day and age there is NO getting around being online, being visible, credible, knowledgable and informative. Let’s face it, if you’re not already embracing most social media platforms for whatever reason, it’s time to start paying attention and get interactive online. But it’s more than just “being” on social media, there is a lot more to pay attention to and this can help.

I recently returned from a pretty big social media and digital marketing conference and there were a few key things that I gleaned from this event that I’m going to implement more or pay attention to when updating my marketing strategy (right now, not later, but now) and I thought you may want to know what these updated trends are as well. And the reason I’ve dated them here is because this stuff changes fast so make sure YOU are getting updates like this from your own team or mentors regularly (or connect with me and get mine).

7 Updated Online Marketing Trends – July 2014

  1. Facebook business pages no longer have good reach, they are now set up for more of a pay-to-reach type of opportunity. It used to be, as recent as October 2013, that your posts would get a reach of 10-12% of your total fans. Now, in April of 2014, only 6 months later, Facebook has changed our pages and we’re only seeing an average of 1-2% reach. Why is that? Facebook obviously wanted us to enjoy having this opportunity to reach our fans and followers but now they want to get paid for that. You can’t blame them but WE, the entrepreneur, have to evolve where we’re focusing our efforts in order to continue reaching enough prospects, new leads and customers online. Remember, you want to use Facebook as just a marketing tool, posting and commenting isn’t always what works on these platforms, it’s the actual one-to-one connecting that works, make sure you have a strategy for doing that effectively on social sites to enough people each month.
  2. Almost 5 billion pieces of content are shared daily on Facebook and 500 million tweets are shared each day on Twitter. How interactive are YOU on these sites and others?
  3. 84% of people you’re marketing to trust recommendations from people they know which means you want to build a loyal following with people who will share and refer you. You may also consider that any paid advertising you do could work less due to this fact as well. What are YOU doing to educate and keep in touch with your database each month?
  4. 100 hours of videos are uploaded to YouTube every minute. How much of that is video you produced and are sharing? This is probably one of THE most CRITICAL marketing strategies you want to figure out how to add effectively to your plan this year.
  5. Podcasts are becoming so popular that some of the new car makers are installing podcast players and stations into car radios along side the AM/FM stations. 39 million Americans have listened to a podcast in the last month.
  6. Pic courtesy of The App Chicks http://theappchicks.com/

    Mobile viewers make up more than 40% of all YouTube global watch-time, more than 1 billion videos are uploaded per day. Is YOUR site mobile friendly where someone doesn’t actually have to move the site around to see what’s on it, really mobile friendly not just visible via mobile? There’s a difference. And are you on YouTube with videos and podcasts where your prospects can listen and watch you on the go?

  7. Buyers are 70% of the way to a buying decision BEFORE they agree to talk with you which means you must have a very impressive, credible, functional and action-oriented website and overall online presence. Do you?

Most of all however, for all types of marketing, the goal should be to get them into your mailing and email database so that you can continue to market to them. You’ve got to build relationships with them over time; that’s the most effective way to market to anyone. People will do business with people they like, trust and connect with so make it easy for them to do business with you and refer their friends to you too!

Now, if you want more specific examples, steps and samples of ways to do all this then you really want to attend my next 3 ½ day Jumpstart Your Marketing® & Sales Summit where I lay out everything you need to do to market online and offline in many different ways and for many different types of businesses too. I give you the steps, the implementation cheat sheets basically on how to do this, what to say, when to send stuff, how to send it and how to even delegate it all so that you can concentrate on getting MORE prospects and making more sales.

So join me in November and let’s jumpstart your business! Go to www.LiveBigEvents.com for all the details and sign up today!

Here’s to creating and enjoying the business and life of your dreams!

Let’s face it, as an entrepreneur we have all kinds of ideas all the time. It’s a curse and a blessing. But often times those ideas distract us from what we need to stay focused on each and every day in order to keep the cash flowing into our business.

It’s pretty common also for entrepreneurs to have some level of ADD or ADHD. Although I’ve never been diagnosed, I’m sure I’ve got some level of one of those!

Therefore, we have to constantly find ways to stay focused, keep on track with our plan for growth in our business and revenue generation while keeping an eye on the big picture plan and vision and where else we can take our business. It’s a lot to manage every day right?

I know for a lot of my coaching clients this is a topic we have to cover often so I wanted to share 7 ways I help clients (and myself too) become more productive that hopefully can help you as well.

7 Ways to become more productive in your life and your business:

  1. Work off a good calendar system that can help you track your time, plot time slots out for different activities and one that you can use anywhere you are to save time.
  2. Track your time for one week solid on everything you do, personally and professionally, and see where you’re wasting time, could get rid of things you’re doing, delegate or automate some things you’re doing, etc.
  3. Set goals for yourself each day, week and month on what you plan to accomplish (see below).
  4. Have your big vision in mind each day so do whatever you have to do daily to make sure that stays on top of mind with you so that you stay focused and get distracted less.
  5. Find an accountability buddy (or coach) or someone who supports what you’re doing in your business fully to stay in touch with however often you need them too – daily, weekly or monthly perhaps but that may be too long.
  6. Unsubscribe from emails and lists that are slowing you down and not contributing to either your enhanced learning, implementing, taking action or accountability. Or have them redirect into a folder you won’t see every day and you can look at when you have time. But don’t let daily emails distract you from the tasks at hand.
  7. Have a marketing and business plan that you’re working from so you know WHERE and HOW to spend your time each day, week, or month. If you don’t have a plan or know EXACTLY what to do, reach out and get a coach who can help you with this FIRST!

Copy these to a Word document now and set up YOUR TIME MANAGEMENT SYSTEM and COMMITMENTS. 

  1. Each week I will spend ________ hours working ON my business which will include marketing activities, marketing and business planning, implementation, sales calls and lead generation. This will NOT include bookkeeping, data entry, graphic or web design or anything else that could be done by someone else for less than my time costs and/or who would be better at the task anyway. I have plotted the time on my calendar to make sure this happens.
  2. I will prioritize my tasks so that the MOST IMPORTANT ones get done first and I will only put on my To Do List those things that I can successfully accomplish during the time allotted.  ______ (initial here)
  3. Each month I will spend ________ hours learning new things (pertinent to my immediate growth) to expand my knowledge base and my business and I have plotted the time on my calendar to make sure this happens.
  4. Each month I will spend ________ hours just for ME and I have plotted the time on my calendar to make sure this happens.
  5. Each month I will spend ________ hours for my family and friends and I have plotted the time on my calendar to make sure this happens.

One thing a lot of entrepreneurs avoid doing in their business is implementing systems and structure. Why is that? 

  • It could be that you aren’t sure how to be more efficient or automated or what to do to get you there.
  • It could be that you’re more of a free spirit and systems and structure sound hard, foreign or horrible at best.
  • Or it could be that you just don’t recognize that you need them.

Systems and structure (sometimes only need to be done one time too!) if put into place in various areas of your business will definitely help you get out of frustration and overwhelm about so much to do!

What I mean by systems and structure is not specific software or programs of some kind necessarily. It’s the strategy and process behind what you’re doing in your business, marketing, follow up and sales. Systems and structure like the ones I’m referring to could lie on your website, shopping cart, software or even offline systems for things that need to happen to run and market your business more effectively and efficiently.

Typically, entrepreneurs who are more creative types of big picture thinkers don’t tend to gravitate towards these types of details whereas those more educated or detail oriented entrepreneurs take too much time with these details and often don’t get to the necessary sales and marketing activities which is not good either.

Let me share a few key reasons why, if you’re someone who’s a bit more resistant (or oblivious) to creating and implementing systems and structure, you want to start paying attention pretty quickly.

You will:

  1. Gain more hours back in your day.
  2. Reach and impact many more people and prospects.
  3. Sell more and make more money regularly.
  4. Become more known and elevate your expert status.
  5. Get more exposure and visibility.
  6. If something tragic happens in your life you will have the time and ability to handle it.

No one thinks anything tragic will happen to them of course, but I’d like to have you please rethink that. If I was talking to you right now in person I would tell you my story and why it’s made me so passionate about helping other entrepreneurs embrace and implement more systems and structure into their business. What I can tell you is that things were going along great about two years ago.  In fact, I had just met the man of my dreams.

But within two years, I had to have two full hip replacement surgeries (at age 42 and 43) and my fiancé has had kidney stones and now an even more urgent medical issue, he developed cancer in his tonsil. (If you’re worried about him, it seems as if he will be ok with a couple surgeries, we’re hoping for no radiation and chemo.)

All of these issues we never anticipated or thought would happen to us but they did. All of them also took us out of our work or business for a minimum of a week if not a lot longer in the case of my surgeries and possibly the current situation.

Luckily I do have many systems and structures in place as well as a pretty decent size team that helped me get stuff done and keep the marketing going while I was out of the office. It did still however cause my income to drop during those times regardless since most of my sales are still made personally by me. My fiancé doesn’t necessarily have a lot of systems in place however.  He has one or two people in his office that he can ask to do things for him if necessary but not too much automated marketing or structure to consistently bring in more leads.

I wanted to talk about this today because if anything, I mean anything, happens to you or someone you love (not to mention unforeseen issues due to mother nature or home repairs), you could be faced with challenges with continuing to generate leads, sales and revenue. I want to make sure YOU are prepared as much as possible just in case. Trust me, do this now, don’t put it off; you just never know what’s going to happen or when and life is too short too to not enjoy it as much as possible now. Systems will do that for you also.

The April Jumpstart Your Marketing & Sales Summit was a blast and a huge success for not only me but the majority of the attendees – I couldn’t be more pleased and grateful!

I’m still listening to all the wonderful video testimonials and posting them on the event webpage for the world to see but I did want to post some pictures here as a recap to the event. If you missed it, make sure you sign up for the November 12-15, 2014 event! If you made it in April of course you’ll want to come in November too to brush up on ‘what’s next’ for you! Most attendees commented that this was the BEST business seminar or workshop that they’ve ever been to!

The webpage is ready to accept signups for November – you can come with a General Admission Ticket or VIP Ticket and be treated to gourmet lunches every day plus my exclusive 1/2 day mastermind session the day before the event starts to jumpstart your planning and learning!

There are also about a handful of sponsor or vendor spots available as well so don’t delay on this, make sure and contact me if you’re even remotely interested in becoming a sponsor of the November Jumpstart Your Marketing & Sales Summit. The sooner you sign up, the sooner we post your information on our website and start promoting you! Click here to find out how to become a sponsor now.

As for the April event, we kicked it off with our 1/2 day mastermind where 17 highly motivated entrepreneurs shared and collaborated with one another to generate big ideas, strategies and even new programs or offerings right on the spot!

That evening we held a very informal networking reception in the bar of the hotel, all attendees were welcome to attend. I love to throw some kind of pre-party at my events so that attendees can get to know each other on a more informal and casual basis. It helps to create the positive, loving environment that’s needed for this type of training and transformation experience.

The 3 days of in-depth training consisted of high energy engagement, deep-dive into the necessary content to help you grow your business and the interactive growth that happens in the hot seats and sharing times.

Two of the three days in the evening we held a panel discussion where panelists shared their expertise on a certain topic but attendees were invited to share and participate as well.

Thursday night was the “Create Your Amazing Life” panel and boy did we shake things up!

What was supposed to be an evening of sharing and expanding yourself for more self-care, love, better relationship development, health and wellness, balance and more was kicked off by of course my boyfriend Jason proposing on stage during his introduction! Whoo hoo!

We felt like the paparazzi was around us with all the cameras going off and then of course I had to get back to leading the discussion! But it was a very special evening for all for sure. Click here to see the blog post all about the proposal!

The second panel on night two was the “Create Your Expert Platform” panel discussion. During this panel we discussed all sorts of “next step” or advanced types business and marketing strategies such as becoming an author, getting publicity, holding your own live event, being a host of your own radio show and more! All of which I teach as things you would do after you have a more smooth-running, moneymaking business model in place.

Day one and two paved the way for your road to success by laying the foundation of what to do in your business and day three showed you how to systematize, automate or delegate most of it too so many attendees could go home knowing some things were already off their plate!

I hope you decide to join us for the next Jumpstart Your Marketing & Sales Summit!

The fun happens on Wed, Thur, Fri & Sat, November 12, 13, 14 & 15 in beautiful Sacramento, CA. We’re close to so much around here, skiing in Tahoe, the bay of San Francisco, wine countries surround us and so much more!

I got engaged!

Oh yes I did!

It happened during the evening panel discussion at my Jumpstart Your Marketing® & Sales Summit event this past week. My boyfriend (now fiance), Jason, was on the panel with a few other friends and clients talking about how to “Create Your Amazing Life”. And while he was introducing himself and why HE was on the panel in front of the audience of around 50 other entrepreneurs, he pulled out this awesome ring and proposed, right in front of everyone and even on video!
It was definitely a surprise even though I knew it was coming sometime soon. I really didn’t think he’d do it on stage at my event. But he’s a fun guy and wanted to capture it on video for me so when else would we have been on video, right?
So here are a few photos from that night and the next day, we’re keeping the video a little more private but I wanted to share that with you since some of you have been following my blog for quite some time now. Thanks for sharing in my journey and quest to find the man of my dreams!
Oh and yes, we will be getting married THIS YEAR, somewhere probably on the coast of California, looking for spots now….destination type of thing since we’ve both been married before and had the wedding, we just want to get away.
        
Until next time…

simplifyThis year I plan on doing the opposite of what a lot of business owners are doing. I plan on simplifying in my business.

You see, a couple years ago I was trying to grow my business and a mentor told me to create this new product and this new program and this new service. And after a year or so of doing all of that and pretty much launching something new every other month or so, what do you think happened?

You’d think I would have made oodles and oodles more money, but sadly, that did not happen. The revenue came in small chunks and because I had so many different ways to buy or different ways to learn (i.e.: products, programs, services) my customers and prospects were confused and never knew which thing to sign up for so attendance in many of these new programs were not as high as I’d hoped.

Then what do you suppose happened? Yep, I got tired. Tired of working so hard to sell the next big thing. Tired of constantly trying to reinvent a new thing that I thought people would want to buy.

When times were tough and the market was down more, it seemed like this was the right thing to do; keep trying to find the thing that people would buy. But it wasn’t.

The best thing I could have done, which I’m doing this year, is to simplify what I offer. This way, it’s super clear on what someone needs, how to buy it or sign up for it and I don’t have to kill myself in the process.

You see, what matters most to your prospects and customers is not that you have huge amounts of things to offer them but you have the “right” thing that they “need and want”. That’s what is going to make them want to buy from you.

Here are a few tips on how to simplify in YOUR business:

  1. First off, figure out what your ideal clients and customers really want. Learn what matters most to them about what you offer rather than what you think they need or should buy. They will only invest in what they see they need and want, not necessarily what you think they need.
  2. Next, determine all the different ways you could offer those things to them. Could you develop a live workshop or virtual group training rather than deliver the information one-on-one? Could you design or develop a product, program or something that they could buy without any involvement of you at all after it’s completed? Figure out how your ideal client or customer wants the information, training or how they need your product delivered and make sure you offer it to them in their preferred manner, not necessarily the way you want to deliver it. I talk to prospects a lot initially about their learning styles and suggest products and services that I have to them based on how they want to learn or digest the information.
  3. Choose price points that are realistically in the range your ideal clients and customers would typically invest in with a little bit of stretching beyond that if you want so you have room to negotiate or offer special deals. Just make sure you also take a look at your overall product/program mix so that you do have some lower level offerings as well as some higher level offerings. If you desire to make a certain level in revenue this year then you want to make sure you have enough opportunity to sell enough things so crunch the numbers on what you’re selling verses how many you potentially think you could sell to make sure you can hit your goals.
  4. Finally, you won’t make anywhere near the amount of sales that you want if you don’t do enough marketing. Marketing is a huge term, it encompasses so many things and not all marketing strategies are good for all types of business owners so you do have to be careful which you embrace and implement. You want to give each strategy a fair trial period before you decide it doesn’t work but first you need to start out with a very smart, effective and consistent marketing plan. Your marketing however could be simplified as well. There are so many ways to automate, systematize and delegate your lead generation, marketing and follow up tasks; this is something to really focus on if you want better results but you want to stop working so hard.

P.S. Been thinking about working with me but haven’t taken that leap yet or inquired yet about how that would work?

Seriously consider talking with me about the NEW Live Big Mastermind….I’ve made quite a few changes to the program for this coming year and can’t wait to work with a great group of highly motivated entrepreneurs (this program will be my MAIN focus in 2014, you won’t see a lot of other virtual programs or free events anymore….take a look!).

Hi there, It’s Katrina Sawa here with a quick event update video for you and a couple other thoughts!

I’m so excited it’s fall time; it’s one of my favorite times of year! I love the colors, the smells (cinnamon, pumpkin spice), the coffee creamer flavors and even the pumpkin patches and fun stuff to do outdoors. Check out this fun picture of my honey’s daughter Riley playing at the pumpkin patch this weekend!

I’m also excited because I’m in the midst of planning all sorts of fun NEW live events, changes to my Live Big Mastermind, products and more for next year! I used to really despise and avoid planning in my business but now it’s so fun because I can get creative, think big, find ways to collaborate with others, serve more people and even see how much revenue could potentially be made too if I implement with consistency and speed (two very important characteristics of successful entrepreneurs!).

I have so much going on I wanted to list it all for you on this page but I also created a fun and quick video of most of it with urls of where to go to for what, more description of stuff, etc. for those of you who are more visual.

Hi everyone,

What a fun week it’s been so far….meeting great people and listening to speakers including a bunch of TED inspired talks at the eWomenNetwork event yesterday….and next week I’ll be in Colorado Springs speaking at the eWN chapter there – so excited!! Scroll down for other events and opportunities too!
Meanwhile, one of the speakers yesterday, my friend Jake Tuschinski, did a quick talk about how so many of us always say we’re so “busy”. It sparked a huge controversy yesterday plus gave me some fuel for today’s video ezine….Watch today’s video then please comment below on this page and tell me what YOUR thoughts are about what you plan on doing about being so “busy”. Oh and don’t forget to comment about my rant about another pet peeve!!
