Lessons Learned and Wins for 2019!

Hello and happy holidays!

For those of you who have seen my Facebook this week you know it’s been a very traumatizing week for my family and I won’t lie it’s been a hard five days. If you’d like to read more about what happened, here’s the post I made. There’s an update if you scroll down in the comments as well. It’s a little too hard to continue talking about however. Thank you though for everybody who shared your thoughts, your love, and your prayers, we really appreciate it.

In the midst of all that chaos and sadness, I somehow managed to pull the energy out and launch another International best-selling book! I’m excited for the 11 other authors in the book, many of whom this was their very first book, so to come out of the gate with an international best-seller was really cool for them. And thank you all so much who bought the book and shared it out for us, we really appreciate all that you did.

Then this morning, I was invited to be on a Facebook live with the Women Speakers Association Premier Members of which I’ve been a member of for four years or more (I can’t remember now).

We were asked to share our “wins” for the year things that we wanted to celebrate and even our “lessons learned.”

What I shared wasn’t what I had planned to share, it just came out. It was all about surrounding myself with communities of people who are full of love, friendship, generosity, and integrity. After all, that’s what really drives me these days.

I thought I would share in this email today a few of those wins, celebrations, and even Lessons Learned in hopes that they can help you in some small way.

And I would encourage you to look at your own “year-at-a-glance,” and see where you thrived, excelled, exceeded your expectations, and even stretched outside your own comfort zone. Celebrate yourself, you deserve it!

So, my big wins as I see them:

  1. Launching a brand-new organization called the International Entrepreneur Network and seeing over 140 people join within the year. I wanted to start this because I feel like I’m just not helping enough entrepreneurs. I meet dozens of entrepreneurs every month from all over the world who still have no idea what they are doing when starting up or growing their business. And they are so passionate but aren’t making the money, it breaks my heart and I want to help them. I want to help everyone. That’s why I made it so stupid affordable that it’s a “no brainer” to become a member. Find out more about this and how you can benefit no matter where you are in your business: www.iEntrepreneurNetwork.com 
  2. I’ve helped 36 entrepreneurs become authors so far too, that’s super cool I think. I LOVE being an author and now I have 10 books – whoo hoo! It gets easier and easier to write or be a part of compilations the more that I do. It’s impressive too when you have one, but more than one is even that much more impressive. I love watching their faces when they light up sharing that they are now authors… and even Int’l Best-Selling authors!! Being an entrepreneur can get you in a lot more doors, book you more speaking gigs and even help you get clients! Find out how you can become an author in the Jumpstart Your _____, Vol III book coming out in 2020:  https://jumpstartyourmarketing.com/jumpstartcompilation/
  3. Consistency continues to be a BIG thing for me, it works. Being consistent with my marketing, lead generation, follow up and sales. Being consistent with my message, my actions, my investments, my networking, my boundaries. Being consistent with my beliefs, thoughts, and ability to make decisions quickly and without conviction.
  4. I really immersed myself in a new organization that I joined late last year called Polka Dot Powerhouse. I really love these ladies, they are so supportive, smart and connected. I was so active, I probably met and/or spoke at chapters with over 300-400 members total all year around the US including being an exhibitor at their Celebration conference in Boston. I’ll be back this coming year too PLUS I was chosen as one of the only 6 Diamond Trainers for 2020!! Showing up BIG (and being consistent) really does pay off. Find out more about PDP, and jump on one of the Open Houses online for free to check it out:  www.PolkaDotPowerhouse.com
  5. I got SUPER OUTSIDE my COMFORT ZONE this year and after 11 years moved my 3-day entrepreneur training event to Los Angeles in November. Now, I probably won’t do that again, not because it wasn’t successful, it was. But because my main goal is to “simplify” in my business and life and having a big event like that with lots of moving parts and “stuff” does not simplify anything, it complicates it. So, for that ONE reason, it’s easier for me and Jason (my husband and now AV guy LOL), we will continue holding the events in the greater Sacramento area moving forward. BUT LA was a good test in “trusting that it will all work out in the end” which is one of my mantras. It did. My 2020 event schedule is up now, registration for the Love & Money Live event will be open soon!

 

Now, for a couple lessons learned in 2019, beyond what I already shared in the wins…

  1. Put myself first. I just told this to a client today too, in fact, we created her a mantra for her 2020 theme for the year “It’s All About Me”. She’s the opposite of selfish, in fact, she’s negative selfish so she really needs this. I told her to set a timer on her phone for every four hours for the whole year. (hee hee) Hopefully she’ll do this. Then when it goes off, have her stop and ask herself: “If it’s all about me, what do I need right now?” That seems like a weird thing to do I know and that often? But for some people, they need that many reminders, they get off track with putting themselves first in so many scenarios and situations every single day – from business and clients, to loved ones to even holding themselves accountable. I’ve been focused on eating right this past year and taking out of my diet the foods that don’t make me feel good – duh, what a concept right? Sticking with good for me, yummy foods. That’s one way that I put myself first. Another is that I sleep when I need to sleep and I make it a top priority to get enough sleep. I haven’t been sick a day all year!
  2. It takes risk. This year I retired my husband from his full-time job so he could start up his own business. (I guess this is one of my WINS too!) It felt really, really good to be able to do that because he was SO unhappy. We took the risk to reduce our income to one in the household so that he could pursue his dream. Not only that but he invested big in HIS business too, entering into a mentoring program for his particular industry of voice overs. Is it harder month by month? Yes but it will only be short term. Is it scary to let something go like that for him? You bet! But he’s lived through cancer, a bad marriage, divorce and a whole host of other things just like all of us and he now knows he can refuse to settle, whether it’s in a job he dislikes or with people that aren’t supportive. It takes trust, faith, determination and a lot of belief that anything is possible. With the right supportive and encouraging people around you, you can do this too.
  3. Keep my distance from yucky people. What do I mean by yucky? The ones who when you see them or hear them, give you that sick-to-your-stomach feeling in your gut, that’s who. If that means I don’t attend some of the biggest conferences in the industry because of it then so be it. I can no longer be around fake or inauthentic people, period. It hurts my energy and it pisses me off to see them lying to unsuspecting people, and more. I can’t be around selfish people who care only about themselves or them making money off of someone without giving a crap if it’s the person’s next best step or not. I can’t be around people who ASSOCIATE with those people, period. This is part of the boundaries I’ve set for myself. And frankly if that means I make less money by not collaborating with some people then who cares. I’m here to help more people create happier lives for themselves which includes more love in their life and money in their business. If you want support around that with someone who really cares about you and isn’t trying to rape you for every dollar you’ve got then reach out and let’s chat! I’m extremely affordable for what you get, you get me, an expert in all things business and marketing! I’m like the best kept secret of the coaching world, mainly because I don’t compromise my beliefs for money or opportunity. I’m the real deal and I’ve helped thousands of people make a lot of money doing what they love.  www.AskKat.biz

That’s a lot of reflection -whew! Thanks for reading.

Here’s to creating and enjoying your happiest life ever with lots more Love & Money!!

Business Planning Tips for 2020

Ready for some Business Planning Tips for 2020?

What are you working on for your planning next year?

I have done a dozen or so big picture business planning meetings with my Live Big Mastermind clients so far since Thanksgiving and a handful more to go too before the end of December.  It’s that time of year!

I love, love, love doing these meetings because:

  1. First off, I get to hear how amazing they’ve done for this current year!! One client whom I just met with before writing this, literally doubled BOTH of her businesses, her private practice AND her non-profit this year!! Whoa!! That was super cool to hear. Sometimes I don’t even know where clients are at if they’re too busy to stop and tell me LOL.
  2. Secondly, I get to hear their fun ideas AND give them NEW or BIGGER ideas on things they can do and how they can tweak their business, marketing, systems, team OR how to get WAY more exposure for the coming year. 
  3. Finally, there are things we discuss, (like with my client last Tuesday) that aren’t always about business – we talk about their marriage, their health journey and even their kids and we develop plans to improve all of those too.

This video today though is of me giving business planning tips for 2020 to one of my Facebook groups… scroll down to join that, there’s more opportunity for trainings like that in the free FB group or the $7/mo International Entrepreneur Network that I run. 

The video is about a half an hour long and it’s all content, so sit down with it when you actually have the time to go through each point and make out a plan.

 

I LOVE what I do and I LOVE supporting and training entrepreneurs like you, new or seasoned on what you can do to jumpstart your business, marketing, websites, mindset, sales, team and even how to generate more clients through speaking, writing books, hosting events, retreats, online memberships and so much more. 

I’ve been doing this for 17 years now and I can’t even imagine doing anything else. You see, I’ve worked really hard building my own business over this time and I still continue to invest in trainings and workshops and masterminds all the time. I know how important it is to keep “honing my skills” – especially with regard to marketing and sales!

I always say you need to “stay in the conversation” to keep up with what’s going on in the marketplace… regardless of what you’re selling or what industry you’re in. 

There is no magic pill to make you an overnight success, it takes work… BUT it doesn’t have to be “hard work”!

When you LEARN WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO DO IT and then you can even delegate some of it or systematize some of it, it is a lot easier on you (the business owner), and THAT’s what I LOVE to teach you how to do!!

If you haven’t attended one of my live events yet and you’re remotely curious about what we do at these events that makes them SOOOOO DIFFERENT than other conferences and business or marketing events that you may have attended, please do so. The next one is this coming Spring… but go check the event webpage for what’s coming up and what you can attend; it might be a live event or a virtual training!

Let me help you get more clients consistently!

Come talk with me, sign up here.

Here’s the page for the other webinar I did about 2020 biz planning too… you can go watch that and other webinars for free: https://jumpstartyourmarketing.com/sacspeakerwebinars/

It’s January which means it’s a great time to discuss your plans for the new year. Today I’m talking about the difference between visioning and planning.

Most of you have probably completed your Big Picture Planning for 2018.  Maybe you’ve also worked on a Vision Board. I’m sure some of you already have a picture in your mind where you want to be at the end of this year. That’s all great!

My interpretation of Visioning is seeing yourself where you want to be with Big Picture Items, Events or things that you want that are not tied to something measurable like a time line or a number goal.

With visioning, we see big things we want to happen, but we just don’t know how or when they will happen. For example:

  • About 10 years ago I wanted a Lexus. I didn’t have enough money to buy it at that time. Once I did have enough money to pay cash for it, I bought my Lexus.
  • I also had Oprah on my Vision Board about 9 years ago. I wanted to meet Oprah and be on her show. An opportunity presented itself where I could go to Chicago to see a couple of tapings of her show and while there, I was invited to be on her Radio Show.

Like many of you, I keep my Vision Boards next to my workspace so I can see them every day!

Planning is very important for your business and personal life. I’m not talking about resolutions but plans that help you reach your goals.

Click the video below to hear more about my tips and the tools I use for Visioning and Planning.

I hope these examples have helped you think more about your Visioning and Planning. If you’d like to have a conversation with me about your planning, your marketing or your business, just go to AskKat.biz to sign up for a call with me. I want to see more entrepreneurs succeed doing what you love. I’m here to serve you to help you make money.

Another way to get more help is to sign up for one of my Jumpstart Your Business Masterclass sessions. I hold these sessions on the last Friday of each month. You’ll get laser coaching from me during the session and lots of tips that you can implement quickly.

Today I’m sharing tips about Business Planning & Big Picture Visioning!

You want to know one of the BIGGEST MISTAKES most entrepreneurs make?

screen-shot-2016-12-19-at-9-14-59-pmThey don’t do enough planning, yes.

But the biggest mistake is not CALENDARIZING their life!

So many people just don’t pay enough attention to scheduling. I know we got into this business to have more freedom and believe me, I have freedom. But without a very well-kept and organized calendar I would never have that freedom!

There’s a lot out there right now on how to plan out your 2017, do your goal setting and so much more right now.  So, are you doing it?

Are you completely confident that you know what you’re doing for all of 2017? What about just the first quarter? How about how you plan to double or triple your revenues exactly? What about doubling your database (which is where the money comes from)?

I hope you watch today’s video and it helps you get more prepared for having your next best year ever!

 

Check out the video below for more detail about How to Plan for a Big 2017 in Your Business!!
