Hi there, It’s Katrina Sawa here with a quick event update video for you and a couple other thoughts!

I’m so excited it’s fall time; it’s one of my favorite times of year! I love the colors, the smells (cinnamon, pumpkin spice), the coffee creamer flavors and even the pumpkin patches and fun stuff to do outdoors. Check out this fun picture of my honey’s daughter Riley playing at the pumpkin patch this weekend!

I’m also excited because I’m in the midst of planning all sorts of fun NEW live events, changes to my Live Big Mastermind, products and more for next year! I used to really despise and avoid planning in my business but now it’s so fun because I can get creative, think big, find ways to collaborate with others, serve more people and even see how much revenue could potentially be made too if I implement with consistency and speed (two very important characteristics of successful entrepreneurs!).

I have so much going on I wanted to list it all for you on this page but I also created a fun and quick video of most of it with urls of where to go to for what, more description of stuff, etc. for those of you who are more visual.

One of the things I’m going to work on for myself this week is evaluating my business models and what I’m selling. I’m thinking it’s time to change it up a bit plus I need to develop some new love and money business models, my club, etc.

I’m sharing this with you to share that no matter where you are in your business these days, you always want to be open to the evolution of it.

In today’s video training I’m talking about developing your signature system, business models and more. I hope you take a look and see what YOU can do to evaluate where YOU are in your business right now. I hope it inspires you to think and play bigger! Let me know your thoughts too, I’d love to hear what you’re doing. CLICK HERE TO WATCH!

This week I’m in a whirlwind of radio interviews, webcasts, live events, did you see them all? Check out the Where’s Kat section below my pic and join me for more coming up!

Speaking of which, did you hear the teleclass I did on Monday with my friend Jane Deuber? The replay is still available but only through this Friday. It was a great call for those of you who need to not only convert more prospects into paying customers on calls and stuff but for those who need to make more appointments and calls in the first place! Click here to listen in!

Jane’s got a really cool techy tool called her Value Quiz, that got me going on this topic this week too all about techy tools. It’s fascinating how much you can get done with the right technology in place in your business, your marketing, your website and in general.

After our call on Monday I attended a SpeakerChat with the Women Speakers Association on Tuesday all about podcasts (another techy tool!).

Podcasts have always been something I’d “get to when I have time” (maybe you can relate?). But this speaker who chatted with us online that day reminded me how easy it was to create podcasts of stuff I already had! Genius! And a BIG DUH for me I must say.

So that prompted this video today – don’t be scared if you’re not a techy or not too tech savvy, it’s ok, trust me, YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW THIS STUFF CAN HELP YOU GROW YOUR BUSINESS AND STOP WORKING SO HARD!! (Yes, I’m yelling at you, can you hear me? Stop working so hard!)

So, here you go, watch it and hopefully be inspired to do something to get your business up to speed.

I’m so excited to be home from my travels….I have a few more in Sept – I’ll be in Monterey, then LA twice. This is a pic of the four of us from the eWomenNetwork Conference where I did a booth – remember that $11,000 big prize drawing I was doing? It was with these gals. Go read my conference recap.

My life is crazy busy right now with speaking gigs, interviews, telesummits and my own events and calls thank goodness I have a few assistants who manage some of this and a very sweet boyfriend who puts up with my craziness….it’s good but when you’ve got a lot of balls in the air, organization becomes critical.

That’s one of the challenges and the blessings when you become more known as an expert in your industry, get out more and have a bigger follwoing.

I’m not trying to brag here. What I’m trying to express is that it’s not always easier when you get bigger or make more money. In fact, you want to learn how to delegate, automate and systematize the things you’re doing every month as soon as you can so that when the time comes for YOU to be swamped with fun, exciting opportunities, you’re prepared.

There is NO better time than NOW to get yourself and your business PREPARED for what’s to come. Because when you get there and try to ‘do this then’, trust me, you won’t have time and you’ll do it all haphazzardly.

So, when I say I’m crazy busy, that doesn’t mean I don’t have time for YOU. Although that’s sometimes what people hear when they listen to me or watch me. In fact, because I have systems in place and people to help me, I do have time to talk with entrepreneurs like yourself who need help. That’s what I’m here for and that’s what lights my fire…is to help you get this stuff set up and your business running like a smooth-running, moneymaking machine!

So check out today’s video tip on how (and why) you want to focus on building community rather than just a list then scroll down in this ezine for all the upcoming events – live and virtual, free or paid – there are a TON!!! Oh…and one of the most important calls is coming up THIS MONDAY, AUG 26TH – FIND OUT MORE HERE.

Have a great weekend!

This week’s video is about YOUR GENIUS – what you do, what you charge and how you’re positioning yourself in the marketplace.

Many small business owners are NOT charging enough for whatever reason and are giving their most valuable services away for cheap or free. Stop doing that and learn how to value yourself in a way that makes sense for you and not salesy.Go watch it, I promise you’ll get inspired!

   CLICK HERE NOW TO WATCH!


Oh and if you haven’t picked up my book yet…now is the time to do that if you want to work on anything that I talk about in this book such as:

  • charging what you’re worth
  • having faith in yourself to go after what you want
  • knowing you’re worth it and should get highly paid for it
  • want to stop sabotaging yourself to success

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!

The second workshop of this series is happening tomorrow June 1st and it’s all about ONLINE MARKETING, WEBSITES, SOCIAL MEDIA, BLOGGING, VIDEO MARKETING & Anything Electronic or Techy in Your Biz. I have 10 seats open if you want to register and get this stuff “handled” or in place in your business. 

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)

This workshop series is ideal for Small Business Owners, Entrepreneurs and Independent Sales Professionals who want to build a more profitable business but not work so hard at it.

Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of how to do the following in your business whether you have a business right now or you want to build one:

• Cultivate more and better relationships on all levels for higher revenues

• Network and market strategically to maximize your time and ROI

• Strategically plan with more efficient strategies for growing your business with more ease and less overwhelm

• Systematize your online and social media marketing efforts to reach thousands of new prospects every month

• Follow up and market to your database with more concrete, proven and easy to implement strategies and systems in order to see more consistent sales and growth

• Get out of the overwhelm you’re in or guilt your feeding yourself and learn a way to actually get all your follow up done including what to say, send, write or call about.

• Learn ways to build and manage more quality relationships with clients, prospects, leads, referrals and everyone you come in contact to – online or off.

The biggest mistake small business owners do is you’re trying to do everything yourself yet you’re no where near marketing yourself enough to reach the amount of prospects you need to in order to reach your big goals.

Small business owners 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. This presentation will teach you ONLY what you need to know NOW to start attracting clients and making money.

Then once you’ve got your business into a smooth-running, consistent income-generating machine you can implement additional strategies. But if you don’t at least do the basics of what works and what will bring you results then you’ll just be spinning your wheels over and over again not seeing the income you want (or deserve!) and you may use up all your original start-up capital to boot, then what? You may have to give up your dream of being an entrepreneur all together and go back and get a J.O.B.

Stop stressing about what to do and how to do it in your business so that you can pay your bills. Instead learn easy and proven business and marketing systems to start, grow, run and market your business that allows you to attract more of your ideal clients who will pay you exactly what you’re worth (if not more) right away. Feel more confident and know that what you’re doing will work and bring you results.

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!

Guest Author: Anastasia Netri

Many entrepreneurs wonder how much to share with their clients, and for good reason.  If you’ve ever wondered how much of yourself to share, and how it affects your credibility, then this article will surely shed some light on this topic for you.

When it comes to being authentic in your marketing and communication with your clients, you don’t have to share everything.  Sometimes, it’s not in service of them to do so. It doesn’t mean you’re holding back if you don’t want to be public with everything.  Private lives are okay!

However, being a little edgy with your sharing can really help your clients to relate to you, to know that you understand them, and to feel even more connected with your message.

Here are a couple of tips that will help you decide what to share:

Tip #1: Share things your clients can learn from

It is of great service of your clients to share mistakes you made, what you learned from it, and what you can teach them as a result of it. 

For instance, let’s say you teach about how to maintain balance, and last week you worked 90 hours, never left your house, and didn’t shower for 4 days.  (It happens.)

A great article or talk could tell your clients something like:

“Look, balance is not always on an every day basis.  Last week I was in the middle of a huge project and worked super hard, but I realized that one week of “full steam ahead” would provide me with 2 weeks of lightening up my schedule.

So I finished my project, scheduled an entire day unplugged, got a massage, and curled up with ‘50 shades of gray’ for a few hours.  It was awesome, and I had accomplished a lot.  I celebrated myself.

It’s important to remember the first and most important quality of balance is to not beat up on yourself, know that at times you’ll get busy, and make sure to plan some down time.  Then, return to your balanced life the following week.”

You’re sharing with them that they don’t have to be perfect and give them permission to fall off the horse from time to time.  You can then, lovingly encourage them to keep getting back on track.

Tip #2: Share things your clients can relate to

Let’s take the same scenario.  You teach about balance.  In your “story” you may not want to share about the crack problem you had in 1983.  This has nothing to do with them, and what their issues are.

But you CAN share about how you worked 90 hours a week for a year, burned yourself out, had to learn the skills you now teach, and how it helped you.

Remember to keep your shares relevant, turn your “mistakes” into teaching moments, and be open to showing them that if you don’t do things perfectly all the time, they can still have an amazing life!
