What does JUMPSTART mean to you?

It just came to my attention from the last email I sent out to my subscribers about my Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend event (I got dozens and dozens of people replying) that many have the thinking that: “I don’t need a jumpstart” because…

  • I’ve been in business for 5, 10 or more years and things are going good
  • I’m too busy, I don’t need clients right now
  • I’m slowing down and trying to stop working so hard I certainly don’t want to get a jumpstart
  • I need to scale my biz, not give it a jumpstart
  • I need an exit strategy, not give it a jumpstart

Well… great!! Those situations in fact ARE also things that I believe you still need a “jumpstart” with. At least that’s how I look at it, let me explain.

I have a LOT of clients who are in these situations, I don’t work with just new business owners you know…

I work with seasoned business owners too. For the newer businesses, getting a jumpstart makes sense to a lot of you, for obvious reasons I think.

However, for my seasoned clients we do things like: 

  • Develop more systems (online and off) to help you manage your business easier and work less in it but ON it
  • Create systems for more nurturing of your database for more referrals, automation, reminders or upsells so sales are made while you sleep!
  • Changing your offerings, raising rates or adding other income streams that are more leveraged perhaps so you don’t have to work so many hours to make the money you’re making – changing it up, doing things differently takes planning, strategy, support and even bigger ideas than some people may generate on their own.
  • Adding team members so you can do less yourself and have more free time for vacations, family or just plain working less with less possibility of potential burnout. Plus, having more team allows you to expand, grow, exit, franchise, hire a manager to run things, be a better CEO.
  • Upleveling or evolving your brand – creating a new website and direction with new inspiration due to change or something that recently happened in your life OR that you WANT to happen but there’s no room for it to the way you’re going. I worked with a fitness trainer once who was holding classes at a gym and also doing mobile training 1on1 and when we changed her business model to doing virtual fitness training and having an online membership and community she could actually stop working so much, she met a man and had two kids!
  • Upleveling yourself as an expert with a book, speaking, more worldwide exposure, hosting a podcast, developing a movement, hosting live events and your exit strategy even. These are things we often want once we’ve got a good book of business already but there’s no time to even think about implementing all of this when you’re IN the business day after day.

Being busy IN the business isn’t good if something does end up happening that could take you out of the day to day sales and client interaction, right?

What would happen if you or someone you loved got sick, hurt or worse right now? 

Would income still be coming into your business regularly even if you didn’t have to concentrate on it?

The “what if” Factor is real. Do you have a plan in case something happens? This is what a lot of seasoned biz owners are NOT prepared for – how to make their business run and make money if THEY did not have to be there every day.

  • What if you had to go take care of a loved one for a month?
  • What if you had to have a surgery and were out for 3 weeks on pain killers?
  • What if your kid/husband/mom/fill in the blank couldn’t work or got hurt/sick and it was just YOU to take care of them?

None of us are getting younger, more stuff happens to us and the ones we love as we get older no matter how hard we work at preventing it.

So much stuff has happened to me and those I love since I started my business – what makes you think nothing like this will ever happen to you?

  • I’ve been through a divorce and also another really horrible breakup with a boyfriend, that made it hard to concentrate on work throughout the whole process (for 4 months!).
  • My dad died and as an only child had to fly to his home multiple times, deal with all his “stuff” and settle his estate over the course of 12 months and $23,000, taking care of everything through probate.
  • I’ve had two total hip replacement surgeries – all in ONE year, out for 3-6 weeks each time, thinking I could work from the couch but not realizing what recovery really took out of me, wasn’t able to.
  • I’ve had a toe surgery another year, a really bad sprained ankle another year and now have knee issues (Oh and speaking is my main biz strategy, right? Hard to do on crutches or brace.).
  • My current husband went through cancer the year he proposed. We had to postpone our wedding a year and I had to spend half my days all week long for over 8 weeks in the chemo center cutting my work time in half if not less as I was a full-time caregiver. (Thank God he’s healthy now!)
  • My mom fell 3 times in one year and I had to fly to her a couple times for surgeries, and to get her set up with in home health care.

I’m sure there was more than that but those are the biggies… beyond that I’ve had multiple website changes and team changes that have cost me tens of thousands of dollars and months of delay in my marketing.

You seriously can’t wait to get more SYSTEMS set up in your business. 

Stop thinking that you’ll focus on this “later” because you’re “too busy or too ___” now.

This is just something to chew on and maybe a “reality check” for some of you too. 😉

I don’t want to see ANYTHING bad happen to you or anyone you love but IF IT DOES I want you to be ready for it. I also want to see you making a LOT more money doing what you love!!

THIS IS WHAT HAVING A JUMPSTART MEANS TO ME.

This is not a squirrel or a bright shiny object. Instead it’s what most people I see need, including myself all the time! A jumpstart somewhere…

Whether you are a NEW business or a SEASONED business, you need to be SMART about your business.

I’m happy to chat with anyone who wants to discuss any of this and what it could look like to work with me on this.

  • For some of you it could just be a couple quick calls because you have things so dialed in.
  • For others you might need a total overhaul of your business, your website, your team and your operations. 

I don’t know until I can discuss it with you but I’m telling you, I see things in systems, I’m very detail oriented and I’m super organized and I can help anyone do this stuff so you can create a smooth-running, CONSISTENT moneymaking business around the kind of lifestyle that YOU want to live.

You need to do things in ORDER OF IMPORTANCE though or it will take you way longer to see the success that you hope to see.

Are you in the process now or thinking about designing a new website for your business sometime soon? Maybe you have a website but it’s not really doing much to build your business?

If either are the case, you can watch this video for tips on designing a new website or tweak the one you have.


Designing a New Website or Revamping Your Current One

There are SO many things to know these days about designing a new website so they will actually WORK FOR YOU rather than just sit there doing nothing, in regards to bringing you more clients, visitors and referral sources.

You MUST LEARN what it takes to really have a successful, well-traveled and converting website or I’m afraid you might continue to be the “best kept secret” in your industry for years to come! The good news is that there are people like me who will spoon feed you ONLY what you need to know about your website design, functionality and content, and not give you too much of the “really techy info that bogs your brain or mind”.

Now, I’ve not been that techy minded or savvy, especially when I first started my business. I was resistant to learning new things, especially if they had to do with technology. But I learned that these online platforms and systems are the #1 thing that helps me reach a lot more potential prospects every month AND be able to manage all the leads I get (online and offline). I taken a lot of time over the years to learn about designing a new website.

I’ve embraced the fact that I need to continually brush up on my techy knowledge and learn more efficient systems or I’ll never get where I want to get in my business. Plain and simple and you need to also.

WATCH TODAY’S VIDEO FOR  IMPORTANT TIPS FOR DESIGNING A NEW WEBSITE.

–>>> Come talk with me in a Website and Business Planning Call or listen to a free audio training that I have all about how to be more successful with your website at http://www.JumpstartYourWebsite.net now.

Running Facebook groups is my #2 marketing strategy. Is it yours? Are you doing it effectively? Are you seeing paying clients come from it without you having to be overly sales-y?

Running Facebook groups helps create and engaged COMMUNITY that fosters relationship-based marketing. We all know how important relationship-based marketing is to cultivate the “Know-Like-Trust” factor, right?  Without your leads getting to KNOW you, LIKE you and TRUSTING you…your chance of converting them into paying customers/clients is virtually zero.

In this video I share a few tips on how I’m running facebook groups and how it’s working. I also share tips on what to post on your various Facebook pages and groups AND why you want to start a Facebook group or community.

My tip today…Get rid of that Script!  If you are a Speaker or an entrepreneur who likes to go to networking events, you should stop memorizing your networking spiel or even your signature talk.

There are times you should memorize certain info or parts of your talk. But to move an audience, to sell an audience or to become known to an audience, it’s more important to be engaging. This is true whether you are in front of a room or sharing your message online via video.

Now, if you are a new speaker, you will probably need scripts or notes for a while and you’ll need to spend more time practicing. But as you speak more in front of groups or virtually, like in this video tip, you should become comfortable enough to ditch that script.

Are you wondering why you shouldn’t memorize your talk?

It’s because people are tired of dog and pony shows.

I’m not talking about sacrificing the quality of your talk. You have to give great value and share great content. But you also need to let the audience know YOU, who you are, what’s deep down inside you!

I’m sharing more info about why being engaging is more important that memorizing in this video below. Click it to learn why you should Ditch the Script!

I love to help entrepreneurs! If you need some help in this area, if you want to be more authentic when you are speaking to others or to a group, I can help you with what to say. I’m good at that!

If you haven’t already visited my website, I encourage you to check out all of my Free Trainings that are available to you to help you focus on growing your business, improving yourself as a sought-after speaker, and much MORE!   Just head over to JumpStartYourMarketing.com/FreeTrainings and help yourself to one or more trainings that interest you.

Then come talk to me. Come to one of my Live Events – you’ll learn so much at my Live Events. Instead of just telling you what to do, you’ll leave my Event with a Plan of what to do and you’ll know how to do the things that are revenue producing activities in your business.

My upcoming Live Event is for you if you don’t know how to manage the technical side of your business systems and applications. I’m going to show you what to do and how to manage the techy types of activities required in your business so you can better manage or delete these tasks. Go to JumpStartYourBizOnline.com to find out more at this event in August. I’m looking forward to seeing you there.

Or go to LiveBigEvents.com to see all of my upcoming events.

Let me dispel one of the biggest Myths that you’ve been lead to believe from others –>  “It’s Not Easy to Make Money and Grow My Business”.

I talk to many entrepreneurs and when I ask them the question, “How much money do you need to make” some of them reply that they only need to make a couple of thousand dollars – every dollar amount given is in 4 figures.

4 FIGURES? Really?

Is that really all of the money you need in a year?

After taking a deeper dive with questions, I find the problem is they have a limiting belief that to make a 6 figure income or more requires a lot more time and a lot more work than they are already doing.

This is just not true – it’s a myth. And I get it – they are already working too hard! They are in OVERWHELM!

Working more hours is the last thing they are interested in because they are already working way too many hours!!

As you know, I travel a lot and I go to many events. I see so many ways successful business owners market and sell their expertise, products, and services. There are so many things you can do in your business to increase your income without adding more work to your overflowing schedule.

I’m sharing ideas and strategies here today. So, listen to the video to learn why “You Have to Work Really Hard to Make a Lot of Money” is a MYTH!

 
There are so many ways I can help you stop struggling!

What are you waiting for?

If you are ready to finally Jumpstart Your Business; if you are ready to get expert advice and guidance on what to do to get out of overwhelm and start making the money you know you deserve, I encourage you to schedule a strategy session with me! And it’s FREE!

Just go to askkat.biz – you’ll need to fill out a few questions (so we can maximize the time you have with me on this session). You’ll be taken to my calendar so you can grab a date/time on my schedule for us to talk.

You may not know whether you have your ducks in a row and I have the solution for that! Take my new Jumpstart Your Biz Quiz. Just go to JumpstartYourBizQuiz.com to get started. Be honest with yourself when answering. It’s a great little assessment for you to see where you are in your business.

After you finish the Quiz, you can decide if it’s time to talk with me.

Here’s To Your Success!

This is something I hear from entrepreneurs and business owners frequently. “I need to make more money in my business right now.”

Back in 2010, 5 years into my business, I had made a lot of high priced investments in my business by that point on coaching, coaches, business trips and workshops, etc. I found myself really “tapped out” to say the least.

I was super scared and not even sure of what but I knew that I couldn’t pay all my bills. It was the month before my 40th birthday and I’d never been in that position before of not being able to pay all my bills. It was scary.

ways to make money

Calculator, bill, pen and cash against a white background

I remember, as I sat cross legged on my carpeted office floor, with all my bills surrounding me on the floor, I cried, wondering which bills I shouldn’t pay this month and which I should. Which companies it would matter and which I could hold off.

My live-in boyfriend at the time was pretty scared too because he didn’t make enough to support my business and lifestyle too. In fact, I think this moment is what played a big part in him making the decision to break up with me the month following. He had an employee mindset and was used to regular paychecks coming in each month whereas I was used to the roller coaster cash flow of an entrepreneur lifestyle.

I still didn’t rationalize it well however as I normally do and how I do now so I’m sure if he saw me scared, it meant devastation for us in his eyes, whereas deep down, I do always know that “it will work out in the end”. But I’m sure I didn’t show it.

So, I had to make a few changes. I took a very close look at my monthly and annual expenses and saw that I could literally cut out $1000 per month of unnecessary expenses or expenses that I could temporarily cut out until I had more consistent revenue coming in; things that weren’t critical to the marketing and sales activities of my business (because I desperately needed those still – you don’t want to cut this!).

Luckily, I don’t have to worry so much about the monthly bills now as I’m making a very good, consistent income. It can always be better and I’m constantly marketing more to build on what I make now. But, because I’ve set my business up for ongoing revenue streams, the right business models and rates, a ton of marketing to reach an expansive amount of prospects each month and I’ve automated, systematized or delegated the majority of it… l can enjoy a less stressed life.

This is what I want for you too! I can show you how to make a LOT more money doing what you love in your business, that’s for sure.

Let’s face it, making more money in your business is a very important thing to focus on. However, it’s not only about making money that can help you “make more money” in your business.

Let’s face it, making more money in your business is a very important thing to focus on. Click To Tweet

There are two other ways more money can go into your pocketbook, or “stay” in your pocketbook each month if you take a few moments to see what you can do to maximize them.

1. Earn Cash Back Rewards when you buy things!

  • Do you have a credit card that gives you cash back or reward points you can use to buy things with or use for hotel stays, etc.? If not, get one!
  • Do you use Ebates when you shop online? If not, get it, it’s free! Then on most websites you shop on online, you engage the Ebates link when you’re there (it’s easy to do) and you can earn anywhere from 1-15% cash back on each purchase!
    • I’ve earned almost $200 this year by doing nothing special more than I would, just shop online like I would anyway.
    • Here’s my affiliate link – you make money and so do I when you join!  https://www.ebates.com/r/KATRIN7687
  • Do you create profiles when you shop on sites like Southwest.com and Hotels.com? If not, make sure you do. Don’t just book your travel without using such tools because not only could you SAVE money on the reservations, but you can also earn free nights and free flights. I earn 2-4 free one way flights each year and earn 1-2 free hotel nights each year too!

2. Save money on things that you’re spending on – do an audit of your monthly expenses!

  • Are you still using those memberships that you have and are paying monthly on?
  • What about the software or online services you may be paying monthly on?
  • And check your personal household expenses too, chances are you could go without cable, DirectTV or Dish and just use Netflix, or the opposite might be true depending on your TV watching habits.
  • Evaluate coaching programs, groups, memberships that you signed up for, for professional development. Many of them may be totally worth the investment but don’t continue to pay for something you’re not using. Check the agreement and get out of it if you can and it’s not directly helping you.

See how you can change the course of your income today by taking action on a few of these that make sense for you!

Then to ramp up your revenues and jumpstart your business, you want to sign up to speak with me or attend one of my live events! These are your fastest paths to learning what YOU need to do to tweak what you’re doing in your business to make more money.

You can also check out a whole host of my do-it-yourself products, programs and even free video tips and resources, but that’s the slower way to get where you want to go.

Either way, take action today! You deserve a less stressful, more profitable business and life as soon as possible!

Have you been trying to get yourself some speaking opportunities (I call them gigs) but you’re not having the best of luck getting booked?

Are you wondering how becoming a speaker will generate more business for you or why it’s such an important marketing strategy?

Well, I’ll tell you; I get most of my coaching clients and even most of my paying customers for other products and programs from speaking gigs. Sometimes they hear me speak in person at a conference or business event. Sometimes they hear me speak over the phone on a teleclass or webinar. Either way, being a speaker allows me to be the expert in my industry or on my topic. It brings credibility to what I do, who I am and it allows people to experience me quicker than if there were to just read a page or two on my website.

speakingWhen people get to hear you or watch you for a longer period of time than just a quick hello or introduction it gives them more of a sense of what you do, how you can help them and they can make a more informed decision on if or how they want to work with you. I highly recommend adding speaking to your overall marketing strategies if you’re a small business owner.

When people hear your speak, it gives them a better sense of what you do and how you can help them. Click To Tweet

In fact, I have a speaker training course on this topic because all my coaching clients need to learn what to do to become a speaker.

The following is that 6 Step Process.

  • Step 1: Determine WHO you’ll talk to and what do they want to hear. Ask yourself “What are you an expert in? or Who is your target market and where will we find groups of them? What do they care about exactly that relates somewhat to what you do?“ Do a search on Google, meetup.com, look for associations or other organizations with events, conferences and even online events and telesummits!
  • Step 2: Develop your speaking topics and speaker sheet. It’s important to BE PREPARED for speaking opportunities at all times if you expect to get any. You want to have a professional speaker sheet ready to email someone who wants to book you that includes your topics, descriptions, bullets of what they’ll learn, your bio, picture and contact information at the very least. Having a video of yourself on stage is also good.
  • Step 3: Strategize on where to get gigs. You’ll need to build a list of potential events, organizations or meetings that you can speak for locally, nationally and virtually. There are easy ways to find places but you need to do your due diligence if you want to get booked. Then you could delegate the contacting of those people and places but it’s not always that easy to find someone who really understands what to ask or say to do this, trust me, I’ve tried; I find that I’m always the best person to look for and contact people to get myself booked.
  • Step 4: Craft your presentations. It’s important to create your speaking presentations so that they are educational, informative, memorable and they make the audience take the action you want them to take at the end. Whether you’re making a sales pitch at the end or not, how you design your talk is crucial to your success, please don’t wing this.
  • Step 5: Design your accompanying marketing materials. Often times you’ll want handouts, flyers, order forms or table display materials for when you attend a live speaking event (as well as virtual – what to do online). Again, if you’re not prepared with these things then you’ll most likely waste your time doing the speaking in the first place. One thing I like to suggest when speaking to a group of people who aren’t that familiar with you is to have and make an “Easy YES Offer”. This is something low priced and easy for someone to buy that gives them a ‘taste’ of what you offer to ‘try you out’.
  • Step 6: Following up after a speaking gig. Most speakers don’t do this well at all and it could be more important than what you do AT the event itself. Developing a kick-butt follow up plan for after an event will provide ongoing lead generation and sales. Most of my sales come in the follow up process but don’t rely only on email marketing these days, you have to do phone calling, direct mail and even connect with prospects on social media sites too as they may only see one of these four attempts!

Hopefully this gives you some idea on what to get started doing to jumpstart yourself as a speaker.

Remember though, speaking is just ONE type of marketing strategy that you may want to do in your small business. Generally, you need to do 5-15 marketing strategies every month in order to maximize your potential.
