Do you want to get out of Overwhelm?  Who doesn’t?

Yes, sometimes I get a bit overwhelmed too, but currently it’s in a good way. I have several fun projects on the horizon. So now I’m just trying to prioritize since I can’t do them all at once.

I recently attended a beach retreat with 34 other entrepreneurs and I got really sick… from exhaustion. Why? I had been traveling too much and I have huge plans for 2018 already that I’ve been focusing on. What I realized at that beach retreat was that I needed to STOP, breathe and figure out how to do less.

Soon after the beach retreat, I hired a new in office, local personal assistant to take a LOT of things off my plate. Whew! I cancelled two events – one this month and one in December that I originally thought I REALLY “needed” to attend but realized that I really don’t.

I also changed my plans on what I would launch starting this November. It’s so hard to keep up the pace I have been and still be here for my clients, my family and myself.
By stepping back and looking at my BIG PICTURE, I realized that what I need to double my business is already inside me!

I needed to take my own advice! PRIORITIZE – that’s what is necessary to getting me where I need to be “IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE” and I just need to stay focused.

Having an assistant and regular team meetings will keep me focused. You may not have that kind of a team just yet and that’s ok but who’s going to help YOU stay focused much less help you DETERMINE YOUR “ORDER OF IMPORTANCE”.

My experience is that you may not know what you don’t know and therefore may not see it exactly clear as to what and how YOU should prioritize to do this for yourself. Am I right?
Many of my mastermind clients and 1on1 clients are feeling overwhelmed right now too. One thing I think that I’m really good at is helping them FOCUS and PRIORITIZE on their immediate next steps so it helps take away the OVERWHELM! (for now, don’t get me wrong, it comes back which is why they hire me on an ongoing basis).

There are a few suggestions that I give to my clients that I want to share with you today. I hope you find these helpful.

    • Remember your BIG PICTURE VISION – is what’s on your plate now and what you’re spending time on now going to help get you to what you truly want your business to look like?
    • If you need to generate money and cash flow right now then – is what you are doing every single day lead generating, moneymaking activities that lead possible people to buying your products, programs and services?
    • Are you talking with people 1on1? This leads to more sales, referrals, speaking gigs and more opportunities. Don’t be shy, reach out and just call people.
    • Say NO to things that won’t serve you, even if you already committed, you can back out of some things and no one will die or think you’re a horrible person.
    • Take care of your personal needs! Get enough sleep, I know that for me, if I don’t get my 7-8 hours a night I drag through the day and am less productive no matter how much caffeine I have. Eat well too, no junk food and don’t drown your sorrow or overwhelm in alcohol (I’ve been there, done that too!).
    • Don’t worry about things that don’t affect the cash flow right now like updating your website, designing a flyer or logo, creating curriculum (without paying clients you don’t have a program!), writing blogs, attending big conferences possibly where you aren’t there solely to network for business. They will get done in due time. Push off deadlines you set for yourself for writing that book or whatever if it’s not going to produce the result you want now (unless that type of thing is your big vision).

If you want even MORE help to get out of overwhelm and stay there, then I would love to speak with you privately and we can discuss all the irons you have in the fire right now, what goals you want to accomplish and what needs to come OFF your plate. If you’re ready to STOP THE MADNESS, you can set up a complimentary call with me here:  www.AskKat.biz

There’s another solution too. Seriously change your plans and get to my next live training November 3, 4, & 5 in Sacramento. www.JumpstartYourBizinaWeekend.com

I know, you’re probably saying “but Kat, going to events is why I have all these ideas in the first place and am overwhelmed!?” If you haven’t been to one of my events before, let me assure you that I do it differently. It’s more than creating BIG PICTURE IDEAS. At my events, we get you laser focused. We look at EVERYTHING you’re doing in your business and I mean EVERYTHING so that we can really help you determine YOUR BEST NEXT STEPS.

Other events usually focus on sharing how to or why to do ONE thing. Although it may sound like it’s just what you need, that ONE THING may not be your next best step!

In case you haven’t experienced me before in an event, speaking gig, webinar or other training, you may not realize that one of the things I specialize in is being able to look at your BIG PICTURE plan and goals, review what you’re selling, who you serve and how you want to design your life and business. AND THEN, only then, can we determine YOUR BEST NEXT STEPS. Once we know that, I show you how to do it all and hold you accountable… yes, for once you can have the type of mentoring that you really need.

People who don’t look at EVERYTHING you’re doing and then give you advice on what to do next are not really seeing the big picture and therefore often “misdiagnose” so to speak what they suggest you need to do next.

I get that you’re overwhelmed now and that not good!

I get that you might be stressed about money too, not making enough right now or wondering how to ever get ahead.

You may have enrolled in other people’s programs, bought products, attended live events and even coached with other mentors before. Maybe some of that was helpful, perhaps none of it was. Or maybe you are still trying to find time to complete the program or training. But how is that working for you? Are you seeing results? Are you getting clearer on how to really build a consistent money-making business? Do you have all the pieces or are you just learning things bit by bit?

All I can say (and my clients will tell you the same thing) is that I’m different. I’m the answer to you finally getting CLEAR, FOCUSED DIRECTION & HOW-TO ADVICE on what order of importance you want to do things in to:

  • Get out of overwhelm
  • Get more clients
  • Make more money
  • Work less and finally get things automated
  • Enjoy a better life!

Sound Good?

Are you ready to finally get out of overwhelm and stop grabbing at every bright shiny object that comes your way?

Join me at my next event – find out more here: www.JumpstartYourBizinaWeekend.com

OR come to a call with me and we can discuss it all first here: www.AskKat.biz

Either way, you can decide to change your circumstances if you want to. You don’t have to stay stuck.

Reach out and let me help you!!

Here’s to YOUR Sucess!

Are You Ready to Start Building a Profitable Business but don’t know how? I’ve got your solution – my new 2 Hour Masterclass!

Are you an entrepreneur who is starting a new business? Are you frustrated because you don’t have ANY money to spend on marketing but need customers RIGHT NOW? You need to know what to do right out of the gate to build a consistently profitable business fast, right?

Have you been struggling with trying to make the income you need to support your business and yourself?

Are you so focused on working IN your business that you’ve become blind to opportunities that are in front of you – opportunities that, depending on your business, could literally make you thousands more dollars each month or each year?

There’s one thing I’ve learned that is typical of most entrepreneurs. They know a lot about their area of expertise but they know very little about what makes a CONSISTENTLY PROFITABLE BUSINESS. I know what’s that’s like – I’ve walked in those same shoes.

I learned so much about building my business during the past 15 years by investing in mentors, masterminds, coaching, workshops, online trainings, conferences, and more. But the One-On-One coaching and access to my coaches really made the difference by catapulting my SUCCESS FASTER.

You see, what makes the difference is for someone to look at everything in your business, to find where the holes and opportunities exist. Many entrepreneurs are so close to what they do in their business, they are unable to clearly see where they can optimize their profit potential.

This is why I’ve created my 2 hour Masterclass that begins this Friday, Sept 29th and continues every month thereafter. Each month’s Masterclass will be held on the last Friday of each month from 9-11 am PST / 12-2 pm EST.

If you want to earn a consistent, 6 figure business, there’s no better time than NOW to start. If you want to work less and make more money doing what you absolutely love to do – now is the time to do that too.

You have to take the time to work ON your business but you NEED to know what to do and when to do it or you’ll just find yourself spinning your wheels and wasting your valuable time. Who wants to do that?

So come “TRY ME OUT” in this 2 Hour Masterclass where we will hone in on just what YOU need to work on in YOUR business right now so you can FOCUS your time and efforts more succinctly with less effort. Each Masterclass session is limited to 30 people.

Jumping on a One-on-One Call with Me is one of the FASTEST Ways to Get the Advice, Resources, Ideas and Support that you NEED when you NEED IT!

Attendees of these MasterClass calls will receive:

  • Recording of the Masterclass that you attend.
  • Feedback and support from not only me, but from everyone on the call – it’s a mini mastermind!
  • The information you need to know what to do, what to say, what to post, send, share, write, record and more!

If you are looking for high quality coaching at a value price, this is for YOU. Sign up and attend any ONE Masterclass for an investment of only $79. (You read that right, for under a hundred bucks you get to pick my brain and get a lot of direct advice for your business).

Head over to my 2 Hour Masterclass detail and registration page by clicking here. You will select the date you would like to attend, but when that class is full, you will have to wait another 30 days for the next one. Don’t delay – get signed up today!

Talk to You Soon!

Today I’m sharing a couple of important tips in this episode of “Ideas I Get While in the Shower”.

These are things that I thought about today – things that I have to make sure are done too!  I want to make sure you are aware and not neglecting things you have to pay attention to.

The two things I want to talk to you about today is your website and your email marketing.

    1. Your Website  –  this is your most important marketing tool but many business owners are not using it effectively.  Also, you have to keep your website updated, especially if it’s a WordPress website.  If you haven’t looked at the back end of your website for a while, you really should do that soon!  It’s critical.
    2. Your Email Marketing  – Sure you need forms on your website but there are so many bots that spammers use to scrap email addresses these day.  You don’t want Spammers on your email list. Many people are getting email subscribers in their list that are obviously spammers.

Listen to the video below to learn more about keeping these tools updated when I share my “Ideas I Get While in the Shower – Episode 2”

Keeping your systems updated is critical to your business.  Do you have systems in place yet to help you automate your business?   Come talk with me about this and more in a complimentary business strategy session by clicking here: AskKat.biz

I’m sharing tips today about how to do quick video tips for your business. They can be like the Video Biz Tips I share with you. Or your videos can be another income stream for you.

There are so many people in business who are NOT doing video yet and I’m urging you to get started NOW! It’s past time for you to embrace video. This post is definitely for you.

If you are already doing video in your business, these video biz tips may still be helpful to you because as you know, it’s not always easy to come up with things to talk about.

First of all, you need to get past the notion that you have to wait until you have everything in place and it’s just right. You can video, off the cuff. I regularly get many revenue producing ideas for myself, my clients, and my mastermind members. And, just the other day, I did a video to share some of the ideas I had while in the shower.

Video can be used to share info and tips. It can also be used as a revenue producing resource. If there is something you know or know how to do and you can teach others, why not record it on video and create a program or online course.

Video is an AMAZING resource. It’s free to use for marketing purposes – well it is right now.

Click the video below to hear more tips and ideas about “What to Share on YOUR Video Tips!”

Are you on my email list? I don’t send a lot of emails, but when I do send them, I share a couple of tips that I think you will be interested in. Make sure you get on my email list, if you’re not already, because I’ve created a new program that will be starting soon and I’ll be sharing the info to those who are paying attention to my emails. It’s an online course where you’ll learn a lot of revenue generating tips, most of them are online. You’ll learn how to reach more people without working so hard.

Go to Jumpstart Your Marketing.com and sign up for the FREE Biz Kit. You’ll get some great tips with that kit but you will also get access to sign up for these affordable programs when I launch them.

Looking forward to talking to you soon!

Ideas in the Shower #1

I’m off to go Camping for the weekend in Yosemite with my family and one of my clients and her family too but first I wanted to share a few fun ideas I had in the shower…

This is something that actually happens to me almost every single morning, even weekends, is that I get ideas in the shower. Do you? I get some of my best ideas while in the shower!

Most of the time the ideas are for my business, sometimes for clients, sometimes they’re ideas for creating content around or for my events and so much more!

I love the time I have in the shower, even if it’s just a quick shower, I use it as my “meditation” time honestly…. some people need 10-30 minutes of meditation to get downloads coming in for them, I need about 90 seconds, it’s great!

Click the video below to hear an example of some of the recent “Ideas I Get While in the Shower”

So what do you think?  Are you thinking about some new ideas now?  I talk to a lot of people and can think of ideas quickly that will help them make more money doing what they love!

I’m excited to bring you a new video tip about how to Maximize Leads when you travel for business!

When you travel to events and speaking gigs, you want to meet the most amount of people, prospects, and referral sources that you can while on your trip! If you are not currently traveling for your business, you can still implement these strategies that I do in your local area while networking or attending an event that’s close to home. These tips will work whether you are traveling locally, regionally, nationally, or internationally.

Many of my clients have been asking me questions about what I do to maximize my leads when traveling because they are starting to travel more for their business too.

Of course, many of the things I do are guerrilla marketing strategies and they depend on the amount of time I’m in another city, the length of the event, and so on. You have to be flexible and review at the event schedule beforehand to make the best use of your time.

Click the video below to learn my secrets on “How to Maximize Leads When You Travel for Biz”

 

So what do you think? I encourage you to take advantage of these free or low cost tips because THEY WORK! You have the opportunity to get more clients and possibly pay for your trip.

If you’d like to talk to me more about these or other strategies to help you make more money in your biz, just head over to askkat.biz – sign up for a call and let’s talk about you and your business! I can help you Jumpstart Your Business FAST!

Today’s tip is in response to many questions I’ve received from my coaching clients and Live Big Mastermind clients that can be best handled with a direct marketing approach.

If you want to target prospects who you don’t know or those in industries that are different from your own, these tips are for you!

No one “likes” to cold call, I get that. But direct marketing to a prospect list will work if you are creative and memorable – you have to Stand Out!

First of all, don’t send an email to someone you don’t know or who doesn’t know you. This is a huge mistake that many people make. You email will likely not be opened; most people will delete it without opening it. I use a different approach because it takes multiple touches to attract the attention of the prospect, referral sources, someone who books speakers, etc. My marketing and sales experience began in offline marketing, so this is one area that I learned to do quite well.

Click the video below to get more “Direct Marketing Tips to Target Prospects”

Now you have a better idea of some things you need to be successful with Direct Marketing. If you’d like to chat with me in a complimentary strategy session about this approach or any other aspect of offline and online marketing, just go to askkat.biz to sign up and I’ll be in touch with you soon! I can help you Jumpstart Your Business FAST!

Today I want to talk to you about FOLLOW UP!  Yes, you know you not doing enough follow up IF you are doing any at all, right?

I’ve been in business for 15 years now and before that I worked with a  couple of organizations where I was out in the community locally in Northern California.  I became  really good with following up because I knew that I had to continue the conversation to build relationships.

When I started my own business, it seems that all I did was Networking and Follow Up.  Why?  This was before websites were as popular as they are now AND social media wasn’t even around.  But guess what?

Most of my sales and new clients still come from Follow Up!

Want to learn how to Follow Up the RIGHT WAY!

Go as fast as you can to JumpstartYourFollowUp.com.  You’ll get my new tool to help you learn how to Follow Up the right way.  It’s my Follow Up Flowchart AND my audio training and it’s absolutely FREE!  You’re gonna love it!  AND, there’s no obligation.

Let me dispel one of the biggest Myths that you’ve been lead to believe from others –>  “It’s Not Easy to Make Money and Grow My Business”.

I talk to many entrepreneurs and when I ask them the question, “How much money do you need to make” some of them reply that they only need to make a couple of thousand dollars – every dollar amount given is in 4 figures.

4 FIGURES? Really?

Is that really all of the money you need in a year?

After taking a deeper dive with questions, I find the problem is they have a limiting belief that to make a 6 figure income or more requires a lot more time and a lot more work than they are already doing.

This is just not true – it’s a myth. And I get it – they are already working too hard! They are in OVERWHELM!

Working more hours is the last thing they are interested in because they are already working way too many hours!!

As you know, I travel a lot and I go to many events. I see so many ways successful business owners market and sell their expertise, products, and services. There are so many things you can do in your business to increase your income without adding more work to your overflowing schedule.

I’m sharing ideas and strategies here today. So, listen to the video to learn why “You Have to Work Really Hard to Make a Lot of Money” is a MYTH!

 
There are so many ways I can help you stop struggling!

What are you waiting for?

If you are ready to finally Jumpstart Your Business; if you are ready to get expert advice and guidance on what to do to get out of overwhelm and start making the money you know you deserve, I encourage you to schedule a strategy session with me! And it’s FREE!

Just go to askkat.biz – you’ll need to fill out a few questions (so we can maximize the time you have with me on this session). You’ll be taken to my calendar so you can grab a date/time on my schedule for us to talk.

You may not know whether you have your ducks in a row and I have the solution for that! Take my new Jumpstart Your Biz Quiz. Just go to JumpstartYourBizQuiz.com to get started. Be honest with yourself when answering. It’s a great little assessment for you to see where you are in your business.

After you finish the Quiz, you can decide if it’s time to talk with me.

Here’s To Your Success!
