Innovate, Integrate, Motivate

With its multi-level course offerings, the 7th Annual Online International Virtual Assistants Convention, is designed to help VAs learn to navigate the pressures and complexities that come with creating and maintaining a virtual business. While challenges in a Virtual Assisting Business may be compelling, now is not the time to cut back on education or limit access to information that can help grow your business.

This year’s convention will challenge participants to think more strategically to implement change by addressing three core principles of business growth and development…

Innovation: taking the lead or initiative in showcasing ideas to assist with the development of your business.
Integration: incorporate the ideas and newest technologies, processes, and services into your business.
Motivation: incite you to take action to achieve goals throughout 2012 and beyond.

Join Katrina at the OIVAC and learn to Enjoy a Better Life and Simplify Your Business!

When: Thursday, May 17th-18th, 2012

More revenue, more time, more support, better marketing plan, better follow up, etc. All of these things are important to your business (and you probably need all of them!), but not one of them will make as big of difference as the thing that I’m thinking of.

The biggest thing that is holding you back from having a much more successful business and even one earning 6+ figure revenues is your own level of confidence.
So many women entrepreneurs struggle with this and most don’t even realize that this is the biggest reason that they are failing to reach their business goals.

The majority of them WANT to make a 6+-figure income, but they look at the mechanics of their businesses. They think they just need to do more marketing, have a better website, do some social media, have more products to sell on their website or who knows what else; I’ve heard it all.

But you beat yourself up on a daily or weekly basis, you listen to that inner head trash that pulls you down or criticizes you and you don’t know how to overcome these feelings or emotions in order to project a more confident, powerful professional persona to be taken seriously. You don’t project a consistent vibration about what you really want in life because you constantly doubt yourself.  Sound familiar?

It’s this low self-confidence that projects a vibe to others all around you; sometimes even giving off the feeling that you don’t really know what you’re doing or that they don’t trust.

This lack of belief and trust coming from your prospects and connections is why they aren’t buying. Most people don’t even notice that they are projecting this and wonder why their business is struggling, why people aren’t buying, why people tell them they can’t afford it or why their phone isn’t ringing.

Your self-confidence can make or break your success and it’s important to focus a good portion of effort towards changing this.

The real change will come when you start looking to make changes to your own mindset. So, here are some steps you can take now to help increase your confidence level and project an energy that is more professional, trustworthy and accomplished.

1. Identify your head trash; what is making you feel bad, what are your deep-rooted beliefs holding you back?
2. Become aware when that head trash is interfering and learn how to ignore it or transform it into positive, productive energy.
3. Clear your environment from negative and destructive external influences:
a. This could mean not hanging around specific people who pull you down or criticize you (at least for a while).
b. This could mean changing the way you dress or look so you feel better about yourself.
c. This could mean taking more time for self-care so you are less stressed and happier.
d. This could mean cleaning up or organizing your home or office if you’re in an environment that doesn’t allow you to be productive with work or to inspire your creativity.
e. This could mean going out and getting that ONE new client to pay your new, higher rate.
4. Hang around people who genuinely care about you and support you, lift you up.
5. Get feedback from your clients who love you and who’ve been transformed by your work.
6. Work with a coach or mentor for this and all aspects of your life and business so that you can become a well-rounded person, professional and learn to see yourself for the wonderful, beautiful person that you are who deserves whatever it is that you want.

Increasing your self-confidence is not a quick task; it’s a life-long process. Don’t set yourself up for failure from the beginning setting extremely high expectations; take baby steps if you can, you will see much longer-lasting results.

Because so many entrepreneurs struggle with low self-confidence, I devote a lot of time to this and many other mindset issues in my 3-day Love & Money Business Summit workshop.  I invite you to attend so you can learn practical ways to increase your confidence, improve your relationships, and make the money that you deserve.  Get workshop details here.

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 SIMPLIFYING.

Yes, you heard it here first….the queen of doing all kinds of stuff in her biz is SIMPLIFYING.

Let me share with you why….

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, 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?”

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. 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.

Join me at my live 3-day workshop in June where you’ll take home a plan to implement all the 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.

Many times entrepreneurs get stuck in their businesses and can’t figure out what’s going wrong when the money stream dries up, clients drop off, and referrals disappear.  This can be so confusing, frustrating, and emotionally draining.

It might be surprising to you to find out that, 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 or your business 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!

All the marketing, systems and planning in the world may not be able to pull you through or get you to that next level unless you are completely happy in your personal life too; you will only get to a certain level of revenues and then most likely get stuck.

Because I see so many people struggling with this, I have decided to do a no cost webinar this Thursday to talk about how success in life and business are intimately connected.  During this call, you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s important to devote a certain amount of time to developing and nurturing the 4 types of Love that will undoubtedly affect the success of your business.
  • What to look at in your business that could be automated in order to give you more time to devote to enjoying more love all around
  • How to transform your life and your business in order to satisfy your true dreams and desires in order to create your happiest and most successful life ever

You cannot afford to waste more time ignoring your needs for love in your life.  They are too important to your success in life and business to not recognize and change those situations that are not serving you.

If you are tired of being stuck and suffering, join me this Thursday, May 10th at 8 pm Eastern / 5 pm Pacific.  Register today so that you can stop spinning your wheels and reclaim your passion.

Do you really know what you’re making per hour after all is said and done?

I’ve worked with hundreds of women entrepreneurs who THINK they really know how much money they make. When we really break it down to all the time they’re spending before, during and after the sale, many times they’re shocked to see what that price tag really is.  Sometimes it’s even less than working in a fast food restaurant!

So I ask you:

  • How much money do you ACTUALLY  make per hour?  Is it above minimum wage?
  • Have you ever taken the time to ask yourself WHY you have you priced yourself (or your products and services) the way you have?
  • When was the last time you looked at your pricing to make sure that it matches up with the VALUE that you’re offering?

Regardless of what you’re doing or what business you’re in I can almost 99% guarantee that you’re NOT CHARGING ENOUGH!

How can I say that? Because I’ve seen it hundreds of times with hundreds of other entrepreneurs in all kinds of industries and types of businesses and frankly it’s a shame.  Too many people are scared into thinking that no one is going to buy from us right now (in this economy) or that people aren’t spending what they used to.

There are PLENTY OF PEOPLE who are willing to pay you what you’re (really) worth but there are some things that need to be put in place in your own life so that you can feel confident asking for and getting those higher rates.  You need to believe that you are worth it.   You need to be completely happy in your personal life too or you will only get to a certain level of revenues and then most likely get stuck.

Because I see so many entrepreneurs struggling with these issues right now, I created a “Love Yourself Successful Teleseries”.  I’ll share how you can:

  • Stop settling and actually take charge of what you want
  • Charge what you’re worth and get it
  • Uplevel yourself to the expert you’re destined to be
  • Have less stress and worry about having so much to do and being overwhelmed
  • Enjoy enhanced communication and relationship boundaries to live a life full of happiness and passion

I want you to have the business you LOVE, make the money you WANT, and enjoy the relationships you DESERVE.  Click here for more details and to register.
