Check it out and tell me what you think!
I’m in LA this week at my own mastermind group working on my business….can’t wait to help YOU work on YOUR business soon!
I’m really having fun with creating new videos this month – have you seen them all? They are ALL different, don’t miss one, you never know what quick tidbit of information you’re going to gleem from one of these videos.
I’ve been doing a lot of mini planning meetings this week from a promotion that I had going and it’s fun, hearing what people want to accomplish and then give them ideas and strategies to even go bigger than what they’d thought! I love this stuff!
Watch today’s video (CLICK HERE) all about how to embrace your inner planning diva…yes you can. I know planning is not always the fun and sexy stuff in our business but if you think about it, this is when you get to be creative and think really BIG! It’s fun, watch my video and get some ideas for yourself this coming year.

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.
PLUS I’m excited about talking with any of you who want to find out about my 2014 Live Big Mastermind group….go watch the video about this Freshly REVISED annual transformational program that can totally change your life!

PS. Comment below – I’d love to hear from you about this topic and talk with you more too about your biz and goals for next year! It’s time to PLAN for 2014!
What a nice Father’s Day weekend we had. Although Jason and I didn’t have Riley this weekend, I still spoiled him with a date night, concert in the park and more. What did you do with your special “dad”?
I’m prepping for a new program I’m launching the end of this month….some of my clients have been waiting for me to do this….I can’t tell you just yet what it is but make sure you’re opening the emails!!
Speaking of emails…did you register yet for the free teleclass I’m having this week on speaking and next week with my friend Sonia Miller? If not, scroll down and sign up so you don’t miss out. They will both be recorded if you can’t make them live.
I know there’s a ton of free info out there but if you’ve ever been to any of my calls you know I give a lot of valuable content, not just the fluff. Sonia does too!
Also speaking of emails, are you doing enough? I know you may be tired of getting so many in your own inbox but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be sending them! Most of my clients are definitely NOT sending enough emails and keeping in touch enough with their database which is why I bring this up. You’re most likely not doing enough either I’ll bet.
For some help with your email marketing, did you know that I have a great little training product just around email marketing? It’s called “Email Marketing Rules Have Changed” and there’s even a video on the webpage to share more about why you want to focus more on this marketing strategy. Go check it out (PS the product is only a $35 investment): Email Marketing Rules Have Changed
Finally, I have a NEW Business Video Tip of the Week – All About Group Programs (it’s part #2 from two weeks ago) – In this part of the video I’m specifically talking about the membership type models that you see out on the internet these days. I have two of these types of programs myself in fact. There are good and bad things about running this type of program to leverage your time more in your business, watch and learn. Go watch this week’s short video training here.
PS – Next week I have 4 slots open to do complimentary business strategy sessions for those of you who haven’t yet had one AND who you’re serious about jumpstarting your business pretty quickly over the rest of this year.Apply now at www.AskKat.biz.
We’re almost to the half way mark for the year and boy is it flying by!
I wanted to let you in on a little secret that I’m doing right now in my business and it’s about getting back to the basics.
Yes, you heard it here first….the queen of doing all kinds of stuff in her biz is still doing the basics!
Why? Because that what works! (in any economy)
You see, while the leveraged business models are still working, there are some business models that you want to spend your time on and some you ABSOLUTELY DON’T right now….
It’s time to ‘Get Back to the Basics’ of what works in your business, the types of things you’re selling, your marketing, your follow up and your overall effective work habits.
In the last few months every business owner I’ve spoken to has all had the same questions:
“What can I do that will bring me more business, nothing is working?”
“Where should I be focusing in my business, I feel like I’m spinning my wheels?”
“How do I get out of overwhelm? There’s so much to do!”
Well, you’re not alone. However there’s a lot of hypy sales stuff out there that sounds great and sounds like it could help you make millions of dollars but will it really work for YOUR type of business and YOU?
Can you risk it financially right now to ‘try it out’?
Most of you I know cannot; neither do I want to take some of those risks so I’m with you here.
What I’m suggesting is getting back to the basics, getting back to building and cultivating relationships with everyone you know. I know you know this, but I’ll bet you’re NOT REALLY DOING THIS?
No entrepreneur I see is doing enough personal connecting, following up, promotion and marketing and most of this little to no money.
You need the RIGHT PLAN of action to show you which steps to take so you can get moving – you need to do BOTH offline and online marketing activities these days to really get where you need to go. That plan needs to consist of many basics – its the marketing basics that will pull you through this tough time. It’s the marketing basics that I’ve been doing since day one in my business and will continue to do every year….because they work.
Basics of Offline Marketing Could Include:
In store Promotions
Live Events / Tradeshows
Basics of Online Marketing Could Include:
Websites – professionally built and copywritten
Opt-in boxes, online offers
Shopping Carts, Email Marketing Programs
Video Marketing – youtube
Webinars / Teleclasses
eBooks and info-products
Search engine optimization
And more on each really….there is so much one small business can do these days but how do you know what to implement FIRST!?
If you implement the above strategies OUT OF ORDER in your business then you may waste a lot of time and money without seeing RESULTS. I want to prevent that from happening to you….
Join me at my next 1-day workshop on June 1st all about online marketing and electronic media such as videos, email marketing, blogging and more. (In April we talked about offline marketing) In this workshop in June you’ll take home a plan to implement all the online basics of marketing and business systems that you will need to totally transform your business. I’m going to show you step-by-step what and how to do the things that I’ve been doing and my clients have been doing for years to build and grow successful businesses. Find out all about it here.
Here’s to creating and enjoying the business and life of your dreams!

These one-day workshops will be designed to help those in attendance with the following topics. This is not my agenda this day, it will be custom designed to help everyone who attends with these topics and to dive in deep to get stuff done, get the strategies in place, implemented, developed or tweaked period.
Topics Discussed in Class on April 5th:
Options for directly marketing to new prospects, networking, follow up marketing systems, phone call scripts and templates for follow up and email marketing, social media messaging and connecting and putting automated systems for all of this so it gets done consistently and to more people every month.
Watch a quick video I did a little while ago about the top Email Marketing Mistakes to see if you really do need this training….email marketing is just ONE of the direct marketing and relationship marketing strategies I’ll be teaching you how to do at this workshop.
I’m so tired of all the hype out there on the internet about “make millions at this or that or by doing this or that”. Every week I talk with a minimum of 5 small business owners who’ve wasted time or money doing the wrong things because they listened to some free teleclass or someone teaching a supposed moneymaking process.
I want to dispel the rumors out there that it’s really that simple to make millions…or even $100,000 because it’s not.
To start, run, market and enjoy a consistently successful 6+ figure business there are two things you want to focus on:
Spending your time wisely (and you may have to spend more time up front than “they say”) doing the right revenue generating activities.
Learning all the things you don’t know as fast as possible, preferably from someone that’s not only been there and done that but is STILL DOING IT AND MAKING MONEY AT IT.
That last part is very important, because it is hard to tell who really is making money on the internet these days. If they have a real swanky website you might just assume they’re making a ton of money. Someone said that to me the other day in fact when I called her on a follow up call. She was shocked that I, myself, would call her in the first place! I told her of course….I do my follow up!
I know if you’re super smart or have a masters or PhD you probably think you can figure out this being an entrepreneur thing, right? Same goes for those who’ve been in high level corporate or even other marketing positions in their careers, right?
I know because about half the business owners I talk to share these things with me. Shoot, I thought that way too for many years in my business! I thought I could figure it out, I thought I knew what I needed to do….but I was wrong and it set me back about 3 years and $100,000.
The unfortunate part is that I see these people out networking again in 6 months or a year and they’re still in the same boat usually or very close to it.
I hope this is not where you are – if so, snap out of it will ya? Let’s teach you what you need to do to jumpstart your business and get you moving! Let’s get you making more money, attracting many more clients, and working smarter not harder!
I want to invite you to learn more about a training program that I’m doing just for you, where you’ll learn the “meat” of what you need to know, not the hype. Do yourself a favor and go find out more about it now. You deserve this. You deserve to have the life and business of your dreams….and you CAN transform your business now with the right training, I know it.
I named this program the 6 Figure Business Makeover – Entrepreneurial Training Program because it shows you exactly what to do, sell and how to market so you can build a 6 Figure Business sooner rather than later. It’s some of the stuff you know you’re supposed to be doing but you’re probably not doing and I show you how to get it done. It’s also the stuff you don’t know you need to know!
You want to know how I’ve built my consistent revenue generating business? How I get all the marketing done every month? How I consistently create new products, programs and revenue streams? How I built a team to support me?
It’s because I’ve taken numerous training programs from other entrepreneurs who’ve been where I am/was and are making money doing the proven strategies they’ve taught me.
That’s what I’m doing in this training program. I’m teaching you all the proven business-building, marketing and how-to run your business strategies and systems (shortcuts too!) that I’ve learned or I’ve developed so YOU can get where you want to be in your business faster than you’re getting there on your own. And by the way, it’s ok to ask for help…it doesn’t mean you’re not good enough or smart enough, in fact it means you ARE smart.
In this program I’m going to teach you and show you how to do or implement the right tasks to spend time on every day, help you prioritize so you’re not overwhelmed and how to attract more ideal clients on a regular basis so your money worries go away.
I cover things such as: business set up, technology, websites, blogging, video marketing, email marketing, social media, outsourcing, pricing, product and service development, time management, bigger picture thinking and so much more.
I’m holding it this month because I hate to see business owners struggling so hard AND I hate seeing you WASTE TIME AND MONEY with the wrong things, doing the wrong marketing, spending time in the wrong places, etc. I can help you focus on the REVENUE PRODUCING ACTIVITIES you should be doing.
Any business owner, entrepreneur or wanna be entrepreneur who wants some clear direction, action steps, how-to advice and more to help you jumpstart your business this year and make a ton more money!
