Where do you want to be 3, 5, 10 years from now?  What’s keeping you from enjoying the lifestyle you really want? Or from designing a profitable business around doing what you love?

Worry? Stress? Doubt? Money? Time? Others? Mindset?

I believe anyone can build the business of their dreams doing what they love IF they learn how to do so.

Most people however, when they set out to start up their own business, just think they can print a business card and design a quick website and have a business make them money. That’s not reality however.

The truth is, it takes time and training to be a business owner. We aren’t all born with the “how to know how to start and run a successful business” gene. We need to learn what to do and how to do it.

Take a nurse for example. If you wanted to become a nurse, you wouldn’t just walk into a hospital in some scrubs you bought for yourself and start poking people with needles right? You’d go to Nursing School for a few years to learn EXACTLY WHAT TO DO and how to do your job.

And even an attorney has to go to Law School. They can’t just walk into a courtroom and start trying a case! That would be against the law plus they’d most likely lose their case since they wouldn’t know what they’re doing right?

Yet entrepreneurs often think they can walk into their own business and start helping clients or selling their products and services without proper training. Now if you have previous sales and marketing training from another job or school, you could probably get somewhat far making money, you could. But you’ll get stuck somewhere. Most likely it will be in how to run your business efficiently and how not to be in chaos in the back end.

And for those without any or much sales and marketing training at all but maybe you know the backend systems, processes, financial end of it all, etc. you will most likely not know how to effectively sell or convert enough clients into your services in order to reach your goals.

There is so much to know when you start up your own business that it just makes sense to get help. It’s a lot faster too. Don’t fall into this trap and get stuck wasting time or money in the wrong places and not seeing results soon.

Here are 5 Simple Steps to Turning Your Ideas & Passions Into a Moneymaking Business:

#1:  Define your vision – think really BIG! (the new plan)

#2:  Choose your model (s) – do what feels right today

  • The Key to Designing Your Business Around the Kind of Lifestyle You Want to Live is…LEVERAGE
  • What can you add: membership model, group program, live event, online classes, teleclasses/webinars, ebooks and products, etc.?

#3: Basic business set up – technology, systems, team

  • Get the Help & Training You Need to Develop the Big Picture Plan for Your Business
  • Learn & Create Systems
    • Implement automated processes online for sales, follow up, communication, lead generation, etc.
  • Develop & Prewrite Templates
    • Write templates for follow up and other marketing tasks to delegate or reach more people faster
  • Duplicate & Replace Yourself
    • At home or work – hire someone to clean house or mow the lawn plus add team members

#4: Jumpstart your marketing – take massive imperfect action, implement like crazy

  •  Get in front of more people, more often and in more ways – massive marketing and lead generation is needed, more than most people think!
  •  Make it easier for people to buy – use online technology and your website as the hub of your business but also have Easy Yes Offers in person to make fast cash.
  •  Create your interactive, relationship marketing, follow up and sales system so that you can funnel more of the right prospects in at one time, not having to touch them all individually yourself right off the bat.

#5: Evolve – reflect, revise & what’s next?

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.

Today I want to share with you my 4 Keys to Taking Your Business to the Next Level.  These are important keys to get started in business, so if you are a brand new biz owner, this is for you too!

Have things become stagnant in your business?  Many people come to me with this problem. Many have been in business for a number of years and they’ve made a certain amount of money, but then they are STUCK!  They don’t know what to change; is it their business model or structure?  Maybe it’s their marketing?  They don’t know what they don’t know.  They haven’t experienced a higher level in their business yet.  They can’t see what to implement, add or delete to their marketing and strategy to take their business the next level.  These are things I see a lot when people are wanting to go BIGGER!

4 keys to taking your business to the next levelI want to briefly cover 4 Keys to Taking your Business to the Next Level, to help you get started thinking about each of these steps. And, if you would like to talk about these  with me further, I’ll share with you how to get a complementary call with me.

So here they are – My 4 Keys to Taking Your Business to the Next Level:

  1. Know your Vision – Understand your VISION and get help to see what else is possible. You know there’s a bigger level but you probably need guidance from someone who’s been there.
  2. Strategy – The strategy that has been working for you for the past few years may no longer be working – you may need to shift your strategy and your mindset.
  3. Support – it’s not just about support for your business – yes, those things are great. But you might need some attention in your personal life too.
  4. Confidence – If you don’t have the confidence to go BIGGER – whatever your big VISION is, it’s probably not going to happen. Sometimes, that takes help and work.
