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

  2. I’m looking for guests for my 2014 shows! You can find out how to apply to be a guest here now.

If you’re not doing all of this, it’s super easy to put the systems in place and can make a BIG difference with results in your marketing efforts! …I would love to help you with similar things as this plus so much more this year too in my Live Big Mastermind!

Hi everyone,

Boy am I glad my whirlwind of trips is over (for pictures check out my Facebook). Can you believe I did nothing but sit on my couch with my honey this last Sunday ALL DAY watching TV, movies and recorded shows we wanted to catch up on? I know, I don’t do that very often but it was soooooo nice to unplug like that and just veg. Can you relate?

Then of course, it was time to hit the ground running with FOLLOW UP this week and the implementing of everything I want to change and do from all the events I went to or spoke at. In fact I blocked 3 separate times on my calendar to do just these things. Do you do that? I recommend you try…

This week’s video tip is all about Getting More Time Back or technically….clearing space. One of the main things I work with my coaching clients on is their time management, what to focus on, how to manage their time, etc. BECAUSE….if you don’t create more space or time for yourself you won’t have the time to do the additional marketing strategies that you desperately need to do to grow your business! I know you’re already wayyyyy tooooooo busy right? Of course you are, there isn’t any entrepreneur that isn’t too busy already.

BUT….ARE YOU BUSY WITH THE RIGHT ACTIVITIES AND TASKS? Probably not always.

Watch today’s video then please comment below and tell me what YOUR thoughts are about what you can do to clear or create more space/time for yourself ok? I will respond, I promise!

 

For more free info on business and marketing go to http://www.JumpstartYourMarketing.com/freegifts.

PLUS I’ve got one more week until my next 6 Figure Business Makeover Program starts and if you want to jump in for the $400 OFF that I mentioned yesterday in my email then you need to register by tomorrow  Thursday, October 3rd at NOON PST to get that deal, then it’s GONE and you’ll pay regular price!! Read that email here now and take action or miss out!

Talk to you soon!

Hey everyone!

If you missed this year’s conference you definitely want to mark your calendar for next year’s eWomenNetwork Annual Conference! It’s literally the best conference I’ve ever gone to for high powered yet very friendly networking, brainstorming, training on your business and FUN with a capital F-U-N!! It’s always held in Dallas, TX and next year it’s happening August 7-10, 2014. Click here for info. I don’t promote conferences like this hardly at all, this is the main one I recommend and I DON’T even get a kickback or commission to do so!

I like to do my own, personal recap of the conference every year, sharing photos, experiences, a few tips and things I learned, etc. so that’s what today’s post is all about.

First off, I know you want to see pictures of WHO was there and WHO I saw or hung out with right? We’re a reality based world after all!!

Then, so what did I learn right?

I listened to speakers on trademarking in your business, changing the way you look at your business forever using leveraged business models, and so much more in the breakout sessions that I did attend. Typically at these types of events I don’t do a lot of listening to speakers although they are great! I prefer to spend the majority of my time connecting, networking and building relationships with the people at the conference so that when I follow up, I have more concrete things to follow up with and on and there is a lot more invested in the relationship rather than just a business card exchange.

If you want to learn how to maximize the conferences and events you go to there are two things you can do today!

  1. First, I have a FREE video training that I did on this topic while I was gone….if you haven’t seen it yet – go watch it on youtube now.
  2. Secondly, I have a very affordable product that I’ve created called my Tradeshow Networking Tool Kit – it has audios, workbook style tips and information as well as tons of examples of print handouts, signs, order forms and more! All for $57. Go find out more and pick it up today – it’s worth it to know how to work the room at any event I promise you!

I’m looking forward to sharing more with you to help you start, grow and market your business!

Make sure you’re signed up in the box to the right of this page to get the Free Entrepreneur’s Success Kit because then you’ll for sure not miss an issue of my weekly ezine full of business and marketing trainings, videos like the one above, invitations to free teleclasses and so much more to help you! Sign up online now and get 5 Free Gifts too at http://www.JumpstartYourMarketing.com/freegifts.

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

Are you having great conversations but not attracting a steady stream of clients who say YES to you and your offer?

Do you love what you do but struggle with feeling awkward and uncomfortable in the sales conversation?

Do you find yourself avoiding sales conversations because you don’t want to appear pushy, salsey or manipulative?

You are not alone. There is a better way!

Join Liz Wendling, The Sales Coach for Women and Katrina Sawa, the JumpStart Your Biz Coach for a FREE teleclass tomorrow, Thursday, May 30th at 4:00 pm PT!

EVERYONE sells something! One of the biggest problems faced by women business owners is not understanding how to attract clients in a way that feels good for themselves and their potential clients. Outdated sales approaches feel uncomfortable and awkward so you choose to not engage in sales activities all together. I’m sure you know by now that sales are the only way for your business to stay in business.

Learning how to effectively generate purposeful and genuine sales conversations that attracts new business and increases your bottom line is the only way. It’s the quickest way to create a steady stream of happy invested clients.

EVERYONE who has a business is in sales and MUST conduct initial sales conversations! No exceptions.

Whether you choose to call your sales conversation a…..

  •     free session
  •     enrollment conversation
  •     strategy meeting
  •     discovery conversation
  •     breakthrough session
  •     complimentary consultation……

Great sales conversations generate great results!

If you’re not stepping into the sales conversation as effectively as you can, you keep hearing, I need to think about it or I can’t afford it.….. something is missing and it WILL continue to cost you time, money and energy.

Join Liz Wendling, The Sales Coach for Women and Katrina Sawa, The JumpStart Your Biz Coach for this FREE teleclass tomorrow by registering here: http://wp.me/P2f8I5-hl

On this call you will:

  • Understand how to conduct sales conversation that attracts clients and creates a flow of new business.
  • Hear why you’re having trouble converting clients and closing sales. (It’s the #1 reason why sales are lost.)
  • Generate a conversation that is completely focused on your client’s needs, pains, and problems right from the start (it’s all about them, not you!)
  • Learn why clients can’t, or won’t, tell you the truth, will put you off, will avoid you or will not return your calls (this one alone will change your business!)
  • much much more…..

No matter what business you’re in, you’re also in the business of sales. NOTHING else will bring revenue into your business unless you can close sales, get people to say yes AND pay you. Really…nothing else!

Hi there, its Katrina Sawa here with a special blog post for subscribers and followers and friends!  

With the half way mark of 2013 just a few weeks away, I know that many of you are looking at ways to finally jumpstart your business into high gear.

 

Maybe you’re getting to the point where you know it’s finally time to take your business seriously and get the training and help you need. Maybe you’re just at a crossroads and aren’t sure which path to take without some personal direction.

 

Well, you’re not alone. I don’t know anyone who’s built a successful, smooth-running, consistent lead-generating, moneymaking machine of a business without getting the training and/or coaching they need for their specific situation. There’s a lot to do, set up, build and manage as a small business owner and boy can it be overwhelming….I know, I’ve been there too and every once in a while I still reach out to coaches and mentors to help me through a rough patch.

 

I‘ve received quite a few emails and I’ve spoken personally with dozens of you in the last few weeks and I hear that you’re a bit confused as to which of my programs, products or services is the best fit for you based on where you’re at right now or what you need help with most. You want a big picture business and marketing coach but you aren’t sure who or if I am the right fit for you?

 

Therefore, I thought I’d put some of my most popular programs and services in ONE email for you today so you can get a better feel for what’s available for you! (They are in order of price low to high FYI but I definitely wouldn’t make your decision based on that.)

 



Option 1: Jumpstart Your Website Webinar – Happens Quarterly! 
Growing your business by having more repeat business and referrals isn’t hard to do! But you ABSOLUTELY MUST have an effective, professionally designed and professionally written website as ONE very important component of your entire, overall marketing plan! No matter what type of business you’re in, this is really important….on this webinar I work closely with just 10 of you to show you EXACTLY what to do to uplevel, change up, develop new and/or tweak your site for more response.

 


Option 2: Silver Mentor Program – Monthly Coaching and Membership 
Need ongoing accountability, resources, advice and ongoing trainings to help you get to the next level in your business, then the next, then the next? This month to month membership programs teaches you NEW and PROVEN marketing and business building strategies to help you grow your business. Plus you have access to my advice, laser coaching and more with the online member forum and open Q&A Calls.

 


Option 3: Jumpstart Your Biz Workshop Series – Online Marketing Focus!– Happens June 1st! 

The second workshop of this series is happeningJune 1st and it’s all about ONLINE MARKETING, WEBSITES, SOCIAL MEDIA, BLOGGING, VIDEO MARKETING & Anything Electronic or Techy in Your Biz. I have 20 seats open if you want to regsiter and get this stuff “handled” or in place in your business. Saturday, June 1 – Topics Discussed: web design and development, technology needs training, copywriting for websites and marketing materials, social media and online marketing to direct traffic to your site, converting and opting in more subscribers to your site, systems for marketing and sales within your site or backend, blogging, video marketing and more (this will be good even if you don’t have control over your website like in a network marketing situation so you need this too, trust me) 

 


 

 
Option 4: 6-Figure Business Makeover – Entrepreneurial Group Training Program – Next class runs June 3 – July 8
This short-term, high access group program will only be 20 entrepreneurs max so that each of you get laser coaching on each call for 6 weeks. This program is for current business owners and seasoned business owners to get the specific advice you need to tweak what you’re doing and monetize or systematize more of what you’re already doing. It’s 6 weeks of all laser coaching calls with me so it’s very focused on what YOU need NOW most.

 


This is a do-it-yourself at your own pace type of program BUT it’s my most powerful, all inclusive training that I’ve ever done AND it includes TONS of BONUSES right now in launch mode so I threw it in here because you can also “work with me” when you invest in this program if you do it quick and are one of the next 6 people to sign up for this – you get all the bonuses listed on the page which include the 6 Figure Business Makeover, the Silver Program and 24/7 access to me personally through mid-July.

 


Option 6: VIP Day with Me 
If you like getting advice FAST and all at once for the most part, this VIP Day is for you. It will be big picture planning in person near my home in the Sacramento, CA area (or I could do them virtually as needed but in person is way more fun and productive). It’s also the how-to, nitty gritty detailed advice you need to get all the big plans done and in place. We can plot out your next big program, product or launch, we can turn you into a speaker in one day, we can help you outline your book and how to get it marketed, we can also help start ups get systems and client attraction activities in place. It depends where you are and what you need but we work fast and furiously in one day plus a couple follow up calls to give you and your business a BIG jumpstart.

 


If you know you need ONE mentor for a while and you need to “get stuff done” then this could be the perfect fit for you. I’m all about implementation and getting stuff done that will help you attract more clients, make more money and enjoy a happier lifestyle for yourself and your loved ones. You receive homework after our calls every other week, you have constant access to me throughout our time together and occasionally I also throw in other bonus programs, products or event access to my 1on1 coaching clients too.

 


Option 8: The Live Big Mastermind – Enrollment Open Now, 8 Spots Available!
This is my only annual group and 1on1 coaching program, this is A-Z as well but you get me on speed dial all year plus the support of up to 11 other highly motivated and caring entrepreneurs along the way. This program you get all my templates and resources that I use to make your life easy. There are 3 group calls a month so you are never alone in the running of your business. There are live retreats and masterminds, you have full FREE Access to just about all my other programs and events too to maximum growth and success!

  

 




If you have any questions on ANY of this please don’t hesitate to email or call me. I’m happy to discuss any of these options (or other products, etc.) with you if you still are unsure. I look forward to partnering with you on your journey to complete happiness and success this year!

“I have been a member of Katrina’s Mastermind group for the past year. I cannot tell you what a blessing this has been to me and my business. Being a very creative right brained Astrologer, Intuitive reader, healer and silk painter, I had no clue on how to promote my business. I now have a beautiful, functional website, I am doing teleclasses and newsletters monthly and I have learned how to promote myself. My business is growing steadily and I cannot tell you enough good things about Katrina and her style of coaching. I would not be where I am today without her expertise! Her coaching style is so nurturing and she gives so much!  Her knowledge of marketing just blows me away! Joining Katrina’s mastermind group was one of the best decisions I could have made for my career. Through this program I have gained the confidence to see success for myself.” ~ Debra Sholly, Astrologer, Intuitive Healer, Baton Rouge, LA www.WhiteDoveIntuitiveAwakenings.com

 

“When I first began working with Katrina, I had some serious gaps in my knowledge of how to market my business online. Not only did I not know how to do anything  but the few things I did know how to do I had HUGE resistance to. I couldn’t get myself to do anything. Well, the other day I kicked off a new program, and something clicked into place. I feel like this has become TREMENDOUSLY easier for me. It was such a huge hump to get over and was so overwhelming- from coming up with a program, doing a call, planning emails, marketing on social media, reaching out for help, reaching out to individuals- and not to mention actually creating the darn program. Now it not only feels more simple, but it also feels FUN! I wasn’t expecting that. Ha. And that’s all because I hired Katrina. No way I would’ve gotten to this point on my own.” ~ Miranda Zukowski, Fitness Coach and Personal Trainer, New Jersey www.MirzukFitness.com

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.

  • Networking
  • Speaking
  • Drop-bys

Basics of Online Marketing Could Include:
  • Social Media

  • Opt-in boxes, online offers

  • Webinars / Teleclasses
  • eBooks and info-products
  • Search engine optimization
  • Web directories
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….
