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!

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!

My Ideas I Get While in the Shower this morning is about Ideas I had about my new podcast today while I was in the Shower.

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 While in the Shower” about naming my podcast.

What kind of feedback can you give me?

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.

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!

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!
