What’s Up With Kat?

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.

Featured Product:

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.

Have a great week!

It’s not the easiest thing to do to hit the $100,000 mark in your own small business. In fact its one of the most difficult achievements I’ve made in my journey. I only got here because I hired mentors and coaches to show me what to do and most importantly what NOT to do. 

If you’re waiting for the EASY ROAD, then my new 6 Figure Business Makeover program is NOT for you! But if you are ready to learn how to build, market & totally transform your business so it gives you more free time while still making all the money you want, I will teach you how to get it done. 

This is like getting a degree in Entrepreneurialism seriously. If you wanted to become a nurse, you wouldn’t just walk into a hospital and start sticking patients with needles would you? No. You would go to nursing school. Same thing goes for being an attorney, an astronaut, an athlete and more. Just because you’re smart doesn’t mean you know what it takes to do EVERYTHING you need to do to start, grow and successfully market your small business. Believe me, I fought this for the first 3 years in my business. And it didn’t get me anywhere fast. 

I invite you to join me in this 6-week very interactive, training with a small group of (max 20) other entrepreneurs to quickly transform your business by implementing the right marketing and business strategies to make your life easier! Stop suffering or being confused and in overwhelm.

NEXT CLASS: Monday, June 10th at 2:00 pm PST!

Topic – Choosing the Right Leveraged Business Models

Read the webpage for full program details. I know it’s long but there are so many things you could be missing in your business model, your marketing and even your mindset and I want to help you. 

My goal is to create thousands of happier entrepreneurs. Being happier to me means having a fulfilled, passion-driven life where you’re making the money you deserve doing what you love and you’re meeting your personal life goals and dreams too. 

Please let me show you the roadmap before you take too many more wrong turns. Register TODAY to reserve your spot and the first 10 people get some pretty hefty bonuses – go check them out!

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!

Last week I wrote an article about WHY you should consider joining a Mastermind program.  This week I am going to go over what makes a TRUE mastermind and how to know the difference.

THE #1 REASON I started my own mastermind program for my clients is because being in these types of programs for me was the single best thing that catapulted my business so fast in the last few years. I wanted to offer that same type of accelerated learning, access and support to a select group of entrepreneurs like you who want to get where you want to go FASTER as well. It’s a great program to offer if you like to work closely with your clients in a small group but it’s also a way to transform your business and do it quickly.

Aren’t all Mastermind groups the same? NNNNNOOOOOOOO!!!!

To me, a true mastermind is NOT:

·         A group of over 15 people

  • More self-learning modules in the program than one-on-one access with the lead Mentor
  • Being coached by the lead Mentor’s co-coach, not the lead Mentor themselves
  • A program where you don’t feel like someone is truly ‘with you’ working on your business all year long (Trust me, I had this issue in one of the masterminds I was a part of and I didn’t feel like my Mentor cared too much about me or what I was doing in my business hence the advice I got was not always in my best interest.)

A true mastermind to me IS:

  • A group of 4-15 like-minded entrepreneurs who are there to give as well as receive.
  • Working hand in hand with your mentor to achieve the big goals and big picture dreams for you and your business and having a good amount of monthly access to them one-on-one
  • Feeling like you are a part of a family who truly cares about you, who inspires and loves you and who would do anything for you (and people you stay in touch with for years after your group experience is over.)

Either you absolutely know you want to get into ONE of these programs and you are deciding NOW which one you will join…..

Or you aren’t sure if this is the next step for you and your business, it’s a big investment and you’re not sure HOW it will pan out if you do it; meaning what will the return on investment be?

This is a common question but very hard to answer because it will depend on you. It will depend on if you get into the right program for where you are now in your business and then how you commit to the group and to yourself to working the program for all it has.

What it all comes down to is how do you most like to learn and how are you most productive?

You have to know your best learning style so you choose and invest in the programs and products that fit you and how you best learn so you don’t waste your money.

I, for example, am NOT a good product learner.  I don’t have good luck purchasing a home study kit or other listen to/read type of product and then actually sitting down working my way through it. It will sit on my shelf forever unless I pass it on to an assistant to read and learn and then THEY can implement whatever it is or give me the ‘cliff notes’.

Instead, I learn best by working one-on-one with a Mentor who’s doing what I want to do or going where I want to go. You know…

  • Someone who’s still in the trenches themselves.
  • Someone who’s investing in themselves as they ask me to invest in them.
  • Someone who’s learning from other big thinkers and money makers so that knowledge will trickle on down to me as well.

I learn well in a workshop atmosphere too but then if I don’t quickly act on the information I learn, it just sits on my shelf once again. Having a Mentor and true Mastermind group to hold me accountable, help guide me in all my big ideas and implementation is truly the glue for me that holds my business together while it accelerates at the speed of light from one level to the next, and the next, and the next.

Do you learn best by teleclasses, group trainings, workshops and online self-administer recordings and interaction or do you need or want more one-on-one mentoring, advice, guidance, resources, feedback and recommendations from your mentor or coach?

That’s where your decision should lie in whose mastermind or coaching program you should join.

You want to go where you’ll have the best experience, implement the most, learn and achieve the most and feel the most supported.

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.

Basics of Offline Marketing Could Include:

  • Networking
  • Speaking
  • Drop-bys
  • Direct Mail
  • Phone calls
  • Advertising
  • Referral rewards
  • In store Promotions
  • Publicity
  • Live Events / Tradeshows
Basics of Online Marketing Could Include:
  • Social Media
  • Websites – professionally built and copywritten
  • Opt-in boxes, online offers
  • Shopping Carts, Email Marketing Programs
  • Blogging
  • Video Marketing – youtube
  • Article Marketing
  • 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….

 

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!

This week I had the pleasure of speaking on stage alongside a very powerful motivator and speaker….Mr. Les Brown!

It was exciting to not only hear him speak again but to be in a lineup with him this time was utterly amazing. Of course as the busy man that he is we didn’t have a whole lot of time to truly connect but he was excited to receive my book, Love Yourself Successful, maybe he’ll read it and see what I’m all about? One can only hope that it inspires him or someone he loves and shares it with just as he inspires me.

This week was the Unleashed Biz 2013 event here in Sacramento. There were 11 other speakers including me and Les who were phenomenal. While we all made our unique offers to continue the conversation with us, it didn’t feel like the other “pitch fests” out there, you know the kind I’m talking about. I think the difference between the speakers (almost all of them) who spoke at this event and many other multi-speaker events out there is that we all truly care about helping the small business owner. We’re not just out for the money (like I said, most of us…and I say that because it’s true, I tell it like it is), money is only the tool that allows us to be able to help MORE people FASTER. It’s important to be well compensated for whatever you do so hopefully you charge what you’re worth.

I actually gave a talk I’ve never given before. It was my 7 Steps to Attaining Great Love and BIG Money….Finally How to Have It All! While I’ve talked about that content and the 7 steps before on teleclasses or my own events, I’ve never given the talk like I did this week. I poured my heart into this one. A few of my friends and clients noticed too that something was different this time.

You know what it was? It was complete happiness.

It’s what I talk about in my book, Love Yourself Successful….how LOVE + MONEY = COMPLETE HAPPINESS in my mind….

Everyone in the audience was really receptive of what I was talking about, at least the women were and some of the men too. My goal with the book and my mission on this planet is to create happier people all around.

How do we become happier? Well it could be a combination of many things that can bring you more happiness….complete happiness.

It could be:

  • Being in a love-filled, passionate and supportive relationship with your significant other. A relationship where neither party is settling in any way, that’s the key. If you settle, you’re missing out on some of the things that you really want and you may not end up being “completely happy”.
  • Being in a career, job or business that you’re so passionate and excited about that you jump out of bed every morning to do it.
  • Being in love with yourself. That means knowing that you’re good enough (or better than good enough) no matter what size you are, height you are, how smart you are, how sexy you are, and whatever other head trash is going through your head….it means that all stops. You will have to love yourself no matter where you are in life or business if you want to become completely happy.
  • Other things that could add to your happiness depend on you and what you enjoy doing or who you enjoy being around. I love to be around kids, they make me laugh. I love to be around friends who support me and lift me up; I’m very social. What makes you happy? Do more of THAT!

Here are a few pictures and videos from this week at this event….I wanted to share it personally with you today in hopes to inspire YOU to create your happiest life ever!
