It’s Official!! My hubby, Jason quit his job this week. He gave his JOB notice and his last day is in September! Granted, it’s about 4 months sooner than I was thinking he would and probably a year sooner than HE thought he would but living with an entrepreneur, the entrepreneur mindset kinda rubs off I guess! LOL (Isn’t he cute? What a ham, huh?)

He sees me working from home when he’s been out in this 105-degree weather for weeks now… that’s just ONE reason it’s sooner than later I’m sure… it’s really HOT. And working inside the air-conditioned house is very appealing.

Frustration Leads to an Entrepreneur Mindset

Over the last month, Jason has been getting more and more frustrated with his job – have you ever felt this way too? That frustration is key to shifting from an employee mindset to an entrepreneur mindset. I know I have with a couple of my past JOBs. The lack of systems, support and leadership as well as the physical taxing work to his body. SOOOOOO, with my 1000% support of course, he gave his notice the other day.

“Yay!” I said, knowing that will greatly reduce some of his stress and anxiety and be a much better life choice for him. He deserves to be happy doing what he wants.

“I’m scared and excited” he said (something that everyone I know leaving their job or that jumps into a new business says). These feelings are so normal when shifting from having an employee mindset to and entrepreneur’s mindset.

It Always Works Out

Financial reasons are one of the main reasons people don’t leave their jobs sooner. For us, (and my main motto) is: it will all work out in the end. I also say, “no one is going to die if you quit, we’re not going to be homeless, there’s always a way to make it work”.

PLUS… There’s always a way to make more money!

That’s the beauty of being an entrepreneur. Problem is… some of you DON’T BELIEVE IT. You could create a new a program, product, event or service and sell it to make money right now. Yes, you could!!

And so that is what I just did too! See the Technology Training Workshop Series below (or here) for more info! I also had 4 new authors join the Jumpstart Your _____, Volume II compilation book in the last couple weeks. And I could even offer some additional 1on1 calls right now too… SO CAN YOU!

There’s always a way for me and for YOU to make more money you know. You are NOT stuck with what is currently coming in for you if you’re running your own business.

You are definitely not stuck with just what’s in your bank account today.

Shift Your Mindset

You want to STOP THAT LIMITED THINKING and get creative and GET BUSY PROMOTING IT and talking to more people! You just may have to step up with MORE marketing, networking, follow up and sales is all but it’s totally possible no matter WHAT business you have.

After all, those are the foundational activities that keep your business a smooth-running, moneymaking machine!

Jason too, will hit the ground running once he finishes his last day mid-September. He’s locked and loaded and knows exactly what to do to start getting paid as a Voice Over Artist because he’s been doing a coaching program to teach him over the last 6 months. (Of course, he’s got me too which is very helpful.)

Crisis or Opportunity

Life Transitions however, can put a strain on any family or person if they are unexpected. (Even if they are somewhat expected too!)

So, what do you do to stay afloat and sane through it all?

What do you do to stay focused, clear-headed and motivated to see results quickly?

Whether it’s to find another job quickly, ramp up a business, get support for your health if it’s a health crisis, borrow money if it’s a financial crisis… you can choose to look at these things as a crisis OR opportunities. An entrepreneur mindset focuses on the OPPORTUNITY!

What do you do when life hits you? You know the type of hit I’m talking about…

  • An illness with you or a loved one
  • A defeat or failure in your career or business
  • A huge relationship break-up
  • Job loss for yourself or spouse
  • Death or loss of a person or pet
  • Big, unplanned move or home catastrophe

Of course we never expect or want these things to happen but most of them will happen, it’s just a matter of when and with who.

Do you just simply get back up and keep moving forward?

Does it shake you for a few days, a week, longer?

Do you get scared and go “hide”? (metaphorically or literally speaking)

Don’t get me wrong. Even with an entrepreneur mindset, you may still do those things from time to time, just not consistently.

Entrepreneur Mindset = Shift, Pivot and Grow

There’s a saying “how you do anything is how you do everything” in case you haven’t heard.

What’s going to help you shift your mindset from “EEEEK and OMG” to “It’s all going to work out in the end, let’s just see what we need to do.”?

I help clients with this stuff all the time you know… I’m not just about helping you with jumpstarting your business, marketing, website, sales, etc. I’m about helping you REDESIGNING YOUR BUSINESS TO FIT THE TYPE OF LIFESTYLE THAT YOU REALLY WANT.  

This involves your life, your business, your relationships, your self-confidence, your technology and systems, your pricing and LITERALLY EVERYTHING that it takes to get you where you want to go including helping you navigate life transitions with an entrepreneur mindset.

Keep in mind that I’ve been helping entrepreneurs do all of this for 17 years now. I know a lot about a lot and I keep learning more myself too, we all have to or we’ll get stagnant.

Come have a call with me and lets discuss your next steps!

Everyone gets value from a 1-on-1 call with me, even if you don’t want to work with me at the end of it, I PROMISE you’ll get some clarity for your next steps or better prioritization, monetization, etc. Guaranteed. 😉 It’s my gift to you… Book it now!

The top questions from entrepreneurs are “How do I find clients” and “How can I make more money?” 

So how do you do it?  How do you continuously attract and find new clients, build the business that excites you and make more money … all at the same time?

Entrepreneurs get distracted with so many ideas and options that you either do nothing or you do too many things at once but none of them very well.

Don’t be fooled by all the tricks in the internet marketing world out there….if you’re in business and NOT seeing the kind of income you want to make then this is the perfect strategy for you to hone your skills in. I KNOW you’re not doing enough networking, relationship marketing or maximizing it when you do network. No one does….

Networking is STILL THE FASTEST PATH TO CASH for myself and any of my clients who need to generate business quickly.

So what is the fastest way to cash, and what about building relationships?

You need to meet as many people as you can and then keep in touch with them consistently and persistently in order to stay on top of their minds at all times. So, networking is the fastest way to build your list of customers and prospects and even referral sources. There are online networking strategies these days as well as offline, on this webinar we will touch on both.

Come to this presentation and learn all the easy and inexpensive tricks, habits, tips and strategies that Katrina has used in her business that has elevated her to celebrity status in the circles she networks in. These secrets can be for the extrovert or the introvert and can apply to any type of business or industry.

Attendees will learn and be able to implement IMMEDIATELY:

  • How to increase your business in less than a week!
  • Simple, easy Relationship Marketing and Follow Up strategies to give you more new or repeat business and referrals
  • How and where to maximize your networking
  • How YOU can become the Go-To-Gal (or guy) and dominate YOUR industry

So, come and learn how to become the Go-To-Gal for your industry or organization – and don’t worry, you don’t have to be good at sales or even that outgoing – but you MUST be motivated to implement!

Katrina can show you an effective approach to build, grow and market your business successfully and quickly!

I know you may not be expecting this type of topic coming from a Business and Marketing Coach like me. But I’ve learned a lot of things about life, love and happiness in my business and marketing coaching with thousands of clients over the last 11 years in business. 

I’m going to get a little deep here and vulnerable with you if that’s ok? Because I think it’s important for those of you who resonate with me and my story to know that you’re not alone and you CAN want and HAVE more.

This is what makes me different from all the other Business and Marketing Coaches out there though I believe. I want to focus on making sure my clients are 100% HAPPY in both your personal AND business life (that most importantly includes your LOVE LIFE!).

The shifts I’ve made are all due to my ultimate goal (which was hidden inside me for years and that I recently tapped into) of being 100%, completely and utterly HAPPY!

Yes, it would be cool to have the million dollar revenues, the vacation house in Hawaii, a boat, etc., etc., etc. and that will most likely happen too but none of that would matter if I wasn’t totally, 100% happy in my life; my personal life.

You see, I was in a marriage relatively unhappy for the last couple years (to a really nice guy I might add since he reads my stuff!) but we just grew apart. I expanded my vision and where I wanted to go (being the entrepreneur I was) and he wanted to stay where we were. That didn’t work for me and I felt like I was settling. We tried everything to work it out but in the end it was better to go our separate ways.

Since then I’ve been on a quest for what my true purpose was, how to do things differently in my business so that I could fulfill that purpose (it’s big!) but along the way I discovered that there was still something missing.

I had a very successful coaching and products business with clients all over the world making a very nice income (not as much as I wanted mind you); I had great friends, family, took vacations but it wasn’t enough.

I had a great big hole in my heart…it wasn’t that I was lonely but I was longing to be in a deep and loving relationship with someone who thought the world of me. I realized I was spending hours and hours a week trying to date online, meeting tons of men with red flag after red flag. I also realized that my business had started to stagnate because I wasn’t spending the time I used to in it; I was so focused on finding my Mr. Right!

That’s when I discovered (after a few months of coaching on it with my coach!) that 


When this shift occurred in me, I immediately shifted my thinking about: 
What I wanted in my Mr. Right (for me) 
- Who I needed to BE in order to attract HIM 
- What I would no longer settle for 
- How he would view me

And I did everything in my power to express to the Universe what it was that I wanted over the next few weeks and what happened was nothing short of a miracle; I met him. He had every quality on my list of 140+ things I wanted (I’m not kidding about the 140+ things), he totally dug me too in every way and we were inseparable!

Not only did my business skyrocket though with new clients when we started dating but my self confidence level elevated so high that now I rarely ever have those days when I doubt, worry or stress about ‘what isn’t’. I’m constantly happy and people comment on how it shows too.

So, ask yourself…are you 100% completely happy too in your life?

You don’t have to be making millions (yet) to be totally happy but you do have to: 
- believe in yourself fully; that you can have it all – the love and the money! 
love yourself fully; not criticize your weight, looks, thinking or performance at work 
- enjoy your time alone (if that truly makes YOU happy) or with a significant other (if you have one) 
- be living your purpose and passions, not going through the motions doing something you hate or aren’t too excited about 
If you’re not totally there yet, that’s ok; the first step is awareness. For example you might be more aware now of issues that could be surfacing for you that you are tired and frustrated with settling for.

That’s a great place to start. Or if you’re further along than that and you’re really on the edge now then it may be time to take action. I highly recommend grabbing a copy of my book, Love Yourself Successful either on my site or on Amazon….it will definitely give you that head start to happiness that you so deserve.

If you’re not getting enough quality leads to and from your website every month then you’re missing out on customers, money and more. Period. 

Your website should be the hub of your business for most of us, whether you’re a local business marketing locally or one marketing to the world. It doesn’t matter. Times have changed, the world and the economy has changed. People (your prospects) are doing business differently than ever before and most small business owners are NOT up to speed online.

I am really, really good at seeing huge opportunities $$$ with your website, no matter what type of company you have. You could be coach, consultant, speaker or even a spa, roofing company, direct sales representative…it doesn’t matter. You need to pay more attention to your website and this webinar I’m doing this month can give you a huge start on fixing it.

This webinar is very interactive. Only 10 business owners can attend each class because in two hours I give you training on what’s important on websites these days (just what you need to know) and then I go around the room and tell each of you anywhere from 3-15 things you can do NOW (pretty easily and inexpensively I might add) to get more business from your site. Everything is recorded and you get access to it so you can go back, listen in very carefully to make sure and make all adjustments to your site that recommend.

NEXT CLASS: Monday, May 20 at Noon PST / 3:00 pm EST

Maybe? Yes? No? Possibly?

Well, I would encourage you to say a BIG, BOLD YES to this because you know its time….

  • It’s time to finally build the life of your dreams
  • It’s time to finally stop settling for LESS than you deserve
  • It’s time to step into your greatness, your bigger purpose and serve how you know you’re being called to serve
  • It’s time to stop letting all the toxic people and thoughts run your mind and your decision making

It’s time to finally take charge of your life and design the business of your dreams!

There was a reason I made that the subtitle of my new book….so many of you need to do this still and you’re holding back.

Holding on to something.

Maybe you know what it is, maybe you don’t. Maybe you have an idea but aren’t sure how to get past it or move through it or take it head on?

I want to help you…

It’s Katrina here with a quick note before I head off for the holiday weekend to visit with family….I haven’t seen one of my step sisters in a year, since last Christmas and my mom will be there too, three nieces and nephews, its going to be a fun time!

I’m just assuming that we’re all going to be ok and the world is not going to end today… LOL

I hope you’re enjoying the holidays so far...not too stressed with the added crazy shoppers out there, making enough money to splurge on your loved ones and yourself this year too. I’m finally able to splurge on a family of my own instead of all my friends kids and other relatives. They’re still important too of course but there’s nothing like being home for the holidays with ones closest to you.

I’m excited too because Jason’s parents are coming for Christmas Eve dinner and I get to cook for us! I love cooking in case you didn’t know. My specialty is Mexican food – I have famous shrimp fajitas! But this week of course its a big turkey dinner with all the fixin’s. I’ll let you know how it goes next week!

I mentioned in one of my emails recently that I also bake a bunch of holiday bread this time of year, pumpkin pecan bread and its so yummy. I thought I might give you all the recipe so I scanned it in
here for you – hope you can read it. Sorry about the stains! I use it a lot!

Speaking of holiday treats….here’s some more fun info!

“Do You Resemble Chocolate or Fruitcake in Your Business?”

During the holiday festivities I thought I would come up with some kind of correlation between the holidays and your business. Frankly I’m tired of preaching at you to work ON your business, not just in it so I’m getting a little creative this week…

Instead, let’s look at how you can stand out and be the yummy delectable chocolate this holiday in your business rather than the hodge-podge fruitcake shall we?

Now, I don’t mean to offend those who make or love fruitcake in any way. I just think there’s a certain perception of fruitcake verses chocolate. It’s that perception that I’m talking about here.
