It’s time. Time to uncover your true greatness. Time to start sharing your gifts with the world, and time to embrace & bring your authentic self more forward in your life!

Whew! That’s a lot to consider, isn’t it? Overwhelming even. And perhaps you are thinking “Sure Kat, I’d love to share my gifts with the world, but I don’t know what they are!” Or “I’d love to find my authentic self, but I’m not even sure who that is!”

That’s where Rebecca Hall Gruyter and I come in. On April 16 we will be hosting a FREE teleclass where we will empower you with the tools to:

  • Find out what to look at in your business or your life that could help bring more of your authentic self out.
  • Uncover your true greatness within you, what that looks like, what your gifts are and how you can share them with others.
  • Discover multiple ways you can bring your authentic message and brilliance to the world.
  • Immediately start implementing action steps to embrace and bring your authentic self forward in your life.

And guess what? When you are able to be more authentic in all that you do, say and strive to be….magic starts to happen!

I’ll talk to you soon!

Join me on March 18, 2014 for a NEW Free Webinar: on my NEW Jumpstart Your Marketing & Sales System!

Regardless of what type of business you have or when you started it, you’re just probably not doing enough marketing or sales.

If you’re trying way too hard to make the amount of money that you thought you should be making by now then this webinar is for you.

If you’re just starting your business – THIS WEBINAR WILL SAVE YOU MONTHS, IF NOT YEARS OF TIME, & THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS INVESTED IN THE WRONG PLACES. You just have to trust me on that, you see, I’ve been there.

I’ve invested hundreds of thousands of dollars on my business including workshops, programs, trainings, mentors and masterminds in the last 8+ years in my business but no one ever taught me as much as I teach clients all in one place (and in the order of importance I might add!).

In fact I keep evolving my programs based on new ideas, technology and trainings that I’ve learned and continue investing in to hone my skills. I recommend you do the same. But make sure you spend your time wisely with those of us who have actually made good money (and still ARE) doing what we teach! Many people teach stuff they aren’t even doing anymore…that’s not me.

I invite you to join me for a FREE Webinar on my NEW Jumpstart Your Marketing & Sales System – it’s for Entrepreneurs who want to monetize more of what you’re doing, automate and leverage more in your biz too so you can create your happiest life ever!

I’ll talk to you soon!

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.

Join Katrina along with the Public Speakers Association for the “Change Your World” Virtual, Live Summit Thursday, February 6th at 3:00 pm (Pacific) / 6:00 pm (Eastern).

Join Katrina for her session:

Katrina’s topic is “Love Yourself Successful – The missing link to Complete Happiness in Life and Success in Your Business.” Regardless of what type of financial situation you’re in, many entrepreneurs struggle because of lack of love in their life….love and support for or by a significant other, love and confidence in yourself or love for life in general. Lack of love in any capacity can surely hold you back from making huge monetary gains in your business whether you realize it or not. And this can send your business into a tailspin with little warning!  Join Katrina in this content rich presentation where she will share insights from her book, “Love Yourself Successful.”

One of the biggest things I see with entrepreneurs in February is that they typically get into a funk.

They set lofty goals maybe in January that still aren’t really coming to fruition or they’ve already backed out of the resolutions they’ve set and for whatever reason get into a funk about business stuff or personal (which in turn affects their business too).

 

Some of the things that can put us into that funk include:

  • Realizing that what we’re doing to grow our business isn’t working
  • Having negative people around you and saying unsupportive things
  • Not having the funds to invest in or do the things you KNOW you need to do
  • Just plain NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO

I did a little poll on Facebook recently along with asked some friends, peers and clients:

“What do you do when you get in a funk?”

“And what do you do to snap yourself out of it?”

 

Here are 20 ways I found or that came up in that poll that could help you when that FUNK hits you too:

  1. Pray
  2. Say some positive affirmations
  3. Read a chapter in an inspirational book
  4. Get out into nature
  5. Pamper yourself with a massage or pedicure
  6. Call a supportive friend, peer or mentor
  7. Read thank you notes, letters and cards
  8. Review the testimonials of your clients on your website
  9. Watch an inspirational video on YouTube
  10. Shift your plans or appointments for the day and go do something fun or play instead
  11. Get to a networking event to socialize and brainstorm with others
  12. Set a NEW goal and take some action towards it
  13. Get hugs
  14. Exercise
  15. Nurture yourself on the inside
  16. Take a nap
  17. Wallow in it all for a little bit – set a timer for just how long and feel it
  18. Get a caffeine fix
  19. Straighten your office, get organized
  20. Watch a funny movie

I want to share with you some special information that I feel is very important. With the obesity rate increasing in the US at an alarming rate, this topic is a timely one.

For starters, did you know that 95% of people who DO lose weight gain it back again once they stop ‘dieting?’ What a sobering statistic! And perhaps worst of all, some people get caught up in what my good friend Linda Allred calls the ‘yo yo’ dieting syndrome – they struggle to lose weight only to gain it back again PLUS a few more pounds, then diet once more, gain even more back – it’s a vicious circle!

Thankfully I’m pleased to announce that there IS an alternative to this pain!

On Thursday, January 30th at 10:00 am PST, 1:00 pm CST, and 2:00 pm EST, my good friend Linda Allred, who is heralded as “THE Bad Habit Breaker/Certified Hypnotist Expert”, will be hosting a special FR*EE teleseminar (by phone) called Why Diet Resolutions Don’t Work: Train Your Brain to Lose Weight! Linda has over 20+ years’ experience in helping people FINALLY get rid of their unwanted (and unloved!) excess weight by harnessing the power of Self-Hypnosis to easily break their bad habits and create a potent punch to help them lose those unwanted pounds… NOW! Most importantly, by utilizing Self-Hypnosis you will learn how to easily and quickly lose and KEEP the weight forever!

If you are ready to discover how to use Self-Hypnosis to:

  • Train your brain to eliminate the weight you hate and keep it off forever all while still being able to eat the foods you love without feeling deprived
  • Train your ‘inner critic’ to be your best friend and,
  • Learn how to love, like and respect yourself…

then this teleseminar is definitely for YOU!

Just imagine if you will, easily breaking your bad habits and beliefs in MINUTES with a whole lot less stress! Imagine walking into your clothes closet every day with a great big smile on your face because you know all of your clothes will fit on your healthy, slim and sexy body!

Imagine how your self-confidence and self-esteem will soar when you FINALLY reach your goal weight!

Can’t wait to sign up? Click here to learn more and/or register.
So, I guess the biggest question you need to ask yourself is this: will 2014 be THE year that you FINALLY invest in your precious health and shed those pounds that are affecting your life? 

If your answer is a resounding yes, then join in on the fun as Linda shares her best tips on successful weight loss on Thursday, January 30th at 10:00 am PST,1:00 pm CST, and 2:00 pm EST, and learn once and for all Why Diet Resolutions Don’t Work: Train Your Brain to Lose Weight! Click here to reserve your special seat today!

I made a very big mistake….but YOU can benefit!

Hi, it’s Katrina Sawa here with a little egg on my face… 

You see I made a mistake I probably would never have told my clients to do and of course it didn’t go very well…

What I’m talking about is the fact that I ran a super cool and important promotion during the month of December!

What I realize now after seeing all the statistics of email open rates and clicks was that most of you were WAY TOO BUSY shopping, celebrating or vacationing during December to see what I was doing.

So, I decided to take back what I said about it being over or too late and give you another chance! And that’s just the way it goes in the marketing world frankly, if it doesn’t work the first time out you tweak it, adjust it, evolve it and go again! 

It’s time to take charge of your business and finally get serious about all the stuff you need to do to make it more successful, automated, profitable and visible I’m sure you agree. 

But are you SURE YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO? 

My next live event is April 3, 4, 5, 2014, with a bonus mastermind day onApril 2nd for VIP ticket holders, here in Sacramento, CA and I want you to be there.

Resolutions or Results?

Do you like making resolutions every year? 
  
I personally am not a big fan of resolutions. Every time in the past where I’ve set them, I’ve never seemed to actually accomplish them. I do however, see results from and accomplish most of my goals that I set every year (personal or business). 
  
To me, resolutions are for diets you plan on doing for a couple weeks and that’s it. Other than that, let’s set some clear, actionable and realistic goals for yourself instead why don’t we? 
  
I believe in optimistic, stretch goals but also realistic goals. I’ve had a few mentors in the past suggest I set these huge lofty revenue goals for my business, I’m talking a million dollars or more, when I wasn’t even yet making one hundred thousand. Now that’s ridiculous in my mind. It’s not that a million dollar business isn’t doable but when you aren’t even to the first biggest milestone yet of $100,000, it’s so far from realistic that of course 99.9% of people would fail. 
  
One thing you can do to help you figure out just how much money you could potentially make or bring in this coming year is to crunch the numbers.
