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!

I know that many of you are looking at ways to finally jumpstart your business into high gear.
The details are below and on the pages linked below so if you’ve been on the fence on working with me in some way, it’s time to get off and sign up!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 it be overwhelming. Let me help you to get the training, advice, support and more than you need to truly get your business on the right track for the rest of this year and beyond! 


The third workshop of this series is happening Sept 6th and it’s all about selling more online and offline, joint ventures, presenting yourself as a speaker and getting more gigs (the #1 marketing strategy for most biz owners) and more. I have 20 seats open if you want to regsiter and get this stuff “handled” or in place in your business. Friday, September 6th -Topics Discussed: how to become a speaker, designing your signature talks and speaker marketing materials, selling from the stage in person or on the phone/webinars/teleclasses, how to get booked, email templates for communication, how to launch and market your speaking and other events or classes/programs online and offline, developing promo materials, flyers, being an exhibitor at events and how to monetize that, build your list, offer free giveaways, doing joint ventures and having others promote your events and classes or products and services.

 

Option 2: 6-Figure Business Makeover – Entrepreneurial Group Training Program – Next class runs Sept 9 – Oct 14 
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 isn’t such a timely option however one of the bonuses for getting this program is the 6 Figure Business Makeover program is FREE so I’m including it here today in case you want this extensive training course as well as the group program.)  

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.

(This is timely too but only for those who want the super duper all inclusive way to work with me – is this you?) 

Option 4: The Live Big Mastermind – Enrollment Open Now, 6 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!


 

Option 5: Jumpstart Your Business on your own with some of my do-it-yourself marketing and business planning and implementation products 

My most popular product is of course my Ultimate Marketing Follow Up System because no one does enough follow up or lead generation. Right now you can get a bunch of bonuses that include the best ways to market and get more leads (online and offline) when you pick up the Follow Up System through this special offer page – click here. You can also check out all the other products, books, webinars and teleseries that are ready for instant download now by going to my products page here. Enjoy!

What a Few Clients Say About Working in a Group Program with Katrina Sawa: 

“Before I started working with Katrina I did not know how to get my new business off the ground or how to revive our existing business. Katrina helped me do both with enthusiasm coupled with “out of the box” ideas. I now have road map for my website business and our graphic design business has had more interest and activity than we’ve had in over a year. Thank you Katrina.” ~ Stephanie Schriger, Owner, RealToughCookie.com, DesignandGraphics.com 

“Katrina helped me get focused with an action plan and defined goals. Plain and simple, saying that my experience with Katrina was “worth it”, does not nearly do it justice. This was an invaluable experience, one that potentially could completely change my business.” ~ Kevin Harris, Owner, Chicago IL www.quicksolvers.com 

“Katrina is serious and fun when it comes to helping you zero in on your business model and structure. She’s got a knack for finding possible streams of income that you can start building and implementing right away. I also find her to be honest and upfront about her own business experiences which is so refreshing.” ~ Helen Kim, Founder, New York, www.YourMoneyRelationship.com 

I am amazed at how much material we covered in such a short period of time. You didn’t waste any time getting down to business. You focused like a laser beam and the direction you provided was right on target, practical and specific. In fact, I began rethinking several of my marketing strategies right after our first call. It all made perfect sense. Often as entrepreneurs we can be our own worst enemy and you need someone like Katrina to push the levers you can’t or won’t for yourself. Katrina, I can’t thank you enough.” ~ Veronica Mayo, Founder, Vemayca Cosmetic Bags, www.vemayca.com 

“When Katrina promises to deliver, she OVER delivers! When I attended her JumpStart group program, I received more resources and help from her than I’ve ever gotten from any other coach, course, or seminar in my life! She helped me get crystal clear on how to develop winning programs and I am pleased to say that I earned more money this past September than I have in any month in the past 9 years! How do you spell business success? 2 words: Katrina Sawa!” ~ Linda Allred, THE Bad Habit Breaker/Certified Hypnotist www.LindaAllred.com

Hi there, its Katrina here with a quick reminder and your “homework”.  What you say? Yes, I said your homework! 

Most of you are not speaking enough if you are already speaking and you’re certainly not following up well from your speaking gigs or I’d be hearing a lot more from you and that all means you’re missing out on THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS EVERY SINGLE MONTH by not doing more speaking (online and offline) or by monetizing and maximizlng each and every opportunity in many different ways.

Go watch the NEW VIDEO I added to this page just last  week….regardless of what level of speaker you are or what you’ve done or what business you’re in. You’ll get some clarity around how important this is for YOU and YOUR business!   

“The free speaker teleclass was good and I have the 6 steps to use speaking to market my business.  I had heard that speaking was a must do and did not know how that would relate to my product.  The teleclass helped to make it clearer how to use speaking and what it really means to use speaking as a marketing tool.  I look forward to listening to more classes and have already signed up for the 6 week class to learn and implement the how to of the 6 steps.” ~ Marianne Black, personalizedexpeditions.com

Your HOMEWORK is:  DO THE MATH.

Crunch the numbers for what you could sell or how much more you could make or how many more clients you could get or help if you got in front of 500-1000 more interested people every month. If that doesn’t make you want to speak more by looking at what it could create for you, then I don’t know what will!

When you reserve your seat in this new Speaker Training Program by midnight TODAY Monday, July 1st you can get in for 50% off! I don’t know if I’ll ever teach this program live again and I can only take 30 people and HALF the seats are already spoken for now! 

If you have any questions on ANY of this please don’t hesitate to email or call me. I look forward to partnering with you on your journey to complete happiness and success this year!

As an entrepreneur or small business owner you have probably identified times of the month or year when they may be more of a lull for you in business, is that right? If you’re newer to business maybe you haven’t discovered this yet but you will, watch for it and pay attention.

Not every business is slower during the summer, for example outdoor yard product or service companies, entertainment venues, tourism type businesses and more are quite busy.

However many coaching type businesses or online businesses are usually a little slower during the summer (and the holidays too). People have their kids out of school and might not be by their computer as much as they were during the school year. People have more distractions going on too with graduations, family vacations, bar-b-ques, outings and more.

Therefore if you do notice some slow downs in the summertime, you may want to be prepared for it. I have a few tips on how to be prepared for lulls, slow periods, lack of customers or even extra time on your hands and what to DO about it!

What else you can do to attract more prospects and customers during slow times:

  • Hold more frequent free calls, webinars or events to drive traffic to your website and trainings
  • Do weekly email blasts – either newsletters or special announcements to engage your audience more often
  • Get to be a featured expert on other people’s calls, webinars, events and telesummits online
  • Write lots of articles and blog posts for your blog, email newsletter, other people’s email newsletters, online websites, organizations you belong to etc.
  • Send something in the mail to your best customers and prospects for upsells, special sales, referrals and more
  • Call through your database to touch base with everyone personally – it does make a big difference when you do this

What else you can do to work ON your business and uplevel your business during slow times:

  • Take a training class or program (in person or virtually) to hone a skill for your expertise or learn more how to better market and sell in your business (the two most important things you’ll ever need to know as a small business owner)
  • Take a vacation yourself – you deserve it!
  • Brainstorm with a business owner buddy to help each other in business
  • Get into a group coaching program or mastermind so you can find out what could be missing in your business, your marketing or other area for success
  • Develop relationships with complimentary business owners, joint venture partners and others who could potentially refer business to you – determine ways to help each other
  • Write a book or at least more content so when you get busy you have stuff already to go on your blog or newsletter
  • Develop a new program, product or service that you can offer to your customers or prospects – figure out all the details, plot out what you’ll do, sell, how to offer and market it, and get it going
  • Record a bunch of videos and save them to launch or post when you’re busier and won’t have time
  • Make updates to your website to make sure it’s professional, functional and that it converts at the highest level

Whatever you decide to do when business is slow, don’t just stop taking action. Continue taking action, giving value, offering your programs, products and services. People do have to read you or delete you so you can still be on top of mind.

Don’t get discouraged just plan ahead for the lull for next year, save up money if you have to. Plan to take time off or work a lot ON your business and you’ll make the best use of your time.

For more information on how to JumpStart your small business with creative ideas and a clear plan to reach your unique target market find out how to talk with me in a complimentary Strategy Session, go fill out the questionnaire at www.AskKat.biz.  Let’s plot out YOUR Big Picture Strategy and Action Plan on what to do now before it’s too late!

Are you tired of all the hypy sales and marketing tactics that are out there on the Internet now? 

Are you trying to figure out how to stand out in your business and as an expert without doing all those crazy gimmicks and things?

I’m talking about being able to be yourself, be authentically you and being loved and appreciated (and well paid!) for it. At one point in my business I got a little away from being “me”. I followed mentors who led me down a path that wasn’t truly authentically me because I thought that’s what I needed to do.

After a few years I realized what had happened and I had to turn things back around. Now I may not be making the millions of dollars a year that some of my mentors are making due to not following their lead; however I am much happier and fulfilled because of following my own authentic path. I went with my gut and what message I felt I needed to bring to the world and am doing that work with ease and influence.

But how do we do this without seeming weak or without sharing too much? How do we do this AND still build a large responsive list of fans, followers and customers so that we can reach or exceed our money goals? There can be a good balance. You can achieve it all.

It’s true there is a lot to DO in your business to really stand out. All the marketing strategies, online business set up basics, offline relationship building activities; it’s a lot to do. But there is a way to do it all while being totally and truly authentically you in the process. In fact it’s more difficult to do all the marketing when you aren’t in tune with why you’re doing what you’re doing.

Here is a list of 11 things to “check yourself with” if you want to see if you’re on track or if you need to switch things up a bit.

  1. Know your big why and your ultimate vision
  2. Stay true to your values
  3. Speak your message loud and proud
  4. Build meaningful relationships
  5. Give back whenever possible
  6. Charge what you’re worth
  7. Deliver crazy amounts of value
  8. Listen to your intuition
  9. Take decisive action
  10. Love yourself fully
  11. Think bigger than you’ve ever thought and GO FOR IT!

My hope is that this short list will inspire you to play a bigger game, really build a business that you’re passionate about and help you to keep on top of mind what’s important in your life so that you know why you’re doing what you’re doing. If you lose sight of your why or your big vision it will be very hard to build a successful and profitable business. Don’t get too busy in the day-to-day activities that you lose sight of what’s important to you and the people that you serve. Stay authentically you and it will all work out in the end I know it.
