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?

For more information on how to JumpStart your small business with creative ideas and a clear plan to reach your unique target market find out how to talk with me in a complimentary Strategy Session, go fill out the questionnaire at www.AskKat.biz. Let’s plot out YOUR Big Picture Strategy now before it’s too late!

Here’s to building a business doing what you LOVE!!

While doing my planning for the New Year, I added to my list of the ways YOU can work with me to Jumpstart Your Business!  And for your convenience, I’ve summarized them as follows:

2 Part Business Planning Webinar

Are you ready for the New Year? What I mean is, are you Planning what products and services you’ll offer in 2019?  What about the business conferences you plan to attend or the events you plan to host?

Here’s my initial process if you want to try this for yourself.  I start with the same question I ask ALL of my Live Big Mastermind members and 1on1 Coaching clients:

  •  What am I selling? or what do I want to sell and focus on selling next year?
  •  What will people want AND how do I want to be in service (or provide my expertise)?

From there, I plot those income streams and business models out. Then, based on my reality and stretch money goals, I forecast how many or what amount of each I would sell and what that would equal revenue wise for the year.

I’ve also recently guided my Live Big Mastermind clients through a planning process that they LOVED. So I’ve created a way to share this process with YOU.

It’s my 2-Part BIG PICTURE BUSINESS PLANNING Webinar. This training consists of 2 Webinar sessions starting tomorrow, Weds, Nov 7th. The second session will be on Weds, Nov 14th. Both sessions start at 9am PST.

You’ll get 2-3 hours of my head on your business in these laser-focused trainings. The sessions will be recorded so you won’t miss anything. But I highly recommend that you come to the Webinars, if you can. You’ll love the price of just $57 for this too! Register TODAY at Jumpstartyourmarketing.com/coaching-bizplanwebinar and be ready to jump into the first session on Weds, Nov 7th!

I also have some new ideas up my sleeve for next year as well as a few tried and true that I love doing.

I’m adding VIP 1on1 Days for those of you who want to get stuff done quickly and not stretch out the coaching and learning or implementing to 3, 6 or 12 months. This is for those of you who want to get it done ASAP!  This is how I like to invest my time with my mentors – 1on1 and FAST, in and out whether it’s in person or via zoom/phone. And because I like to do it this way, I’m betting that there’s a few of you who like to learn and get stuff done this way too.

I’m kicking this offering off this winter and doing something I’ve not done before in my 16 years in business. It’s my “End of Year/ New Year VIP Planning Frenzy”.

I’ve selected 10 days between Thanksgiving and mid-January to do these VIP 1on1 Days – JUST 10 DAYS!  DO YOU WANT ONE?

What if I told you they were only ONE THIRD OF THE PRICE on these specific 10 days that I’ve selected. (Take it as my holiday gift to you!)

If you would like to be considered for one of them, please fill out the quick little form and tell me your big hairy goal(s) are for 2019. Tell me which date you want from this list of dates given and I’ll be in touch with a quick phone call. Just Click on THE WORDS “COUNT ME IN” .

If you decide NOT to do it after talking with me or hearing the investment, there’s no obligation just because you’ve filled out the form stating you’re interested. I’m not publishing the investment cost on purpose. Why? Because I’m trying to PUSH those of you who already “THINK YOU CAN’T AFFORD IT” to get outside of your comfort zone and just see what’s possible for you AND ASK. Just ask… what have you got to lose? You will be glad you did!

If you don’t ask, you don’t receive. If you don’t find out, you never know. If you don’t take action, you never get where you want to go!

So Stop Sabotaging Yourself with these limiting beliefs before you have all the facts or you’re definitely NOT going to reach your goals this year or next. Go Fill Out the Form – these VIP 1on1 Days won’t last long!

Now, here are some other ways you can get support from me before the end of 2018:

There are still 2 Friday 2-Hour Zoom Masterclasses you can attend this year ($79 each), Nov 30 and Dec 14. Those will be going away in 2019 as they are now.  Click here to Register.

There is one more,  1 day Techy Hands-On Workshop on Dec 13th. ($397 to work with me and a very small group for an entire day on your website, social media, videos, email marketing and more.)  Click here to Register for Jumpstart Your Biz Online.

Another option is you could do one or two 1on1 Planning Calls with me of course… at $350 each.

And of course I opened enrollment for my Live Big Mastermind this week again for this coming year!  If you’re looking for a mastermind to join, you definitely want to take a look at mine if you want to work on the following this year and get accountability to get it all done.  We focus on areas like:

  1.  Consistent revenue coming from your consistent marketing and lead generation activities
  2.  Consistent revenue coming from your speaking opportunities – online or in person
  3.  Consistent revenue coming from your website traffic and online offerings
  4.  Developing your leveraged programs, products, events and more
  5.  Developing online funnels, memberships, groups and community
  6.  Hiring and utilizing a team or more technology and systems so you can reach more people and get more done without working so hard
  7.  Getting rid of that head trash and toxic people that keep you stuck
  8.  Getting a book done, corporate gigs, new website, better branding and so much more!

Click here to go look at the benefits of the Live Big Mastermind and fill out the form on that page if you want to talk with me about it.

Here’s to creating and enjoying a life full of lots of LOVE & MONEY!!

Choosing your technology tools, resources, software can be confusing, I know. There are soooo many choices and everyone you ask probably gives you a different recommendation, right?

You see, when I first talk to entrepreneurs, whether they are new in business or even if they’ve been in business for years – the topic of technology comes up. I ask questions about what technology people are using in their business to be able to advise them about systemizing their business and running an efficient business so they can get more clients and make more money.

Starting with the big picture and down to the details, I ask about the tools and software that you, the business owner uses. I’ve found that many times people are using the wrong technology for their needs, for what they are trying to do in their business.

The last thing I want my clients and really, any small business owner to do is to commit to a big investment for a software package that does not fit their needs.

There’s an important fact you need to know…I don’t give cookie cutter advice when it comes to choosing your techy needs.

Click below to listen to my video tip about “How to Choose Technology Tools for Your Business”

 

So, does this all make sense to you?

Are you ready to get clear about the technology that will be best to use in your business based on the type of business you have and where you are in your business right now?  Then, schedule a strategy session with me now and we’ll get started. Go to https://jumpstartyourmarketing.com/strategysession/ and sign up today!

And if you haven’t heard yet, I’m holding a Live event on Thursday, December 13th in Roseville, CA – Jumpstart Your Biz Online – 1 Day Workshop.  It’s a one day, hands-on workshop where attendees will bring their laptops and I’ll show you what you need to know about the back end of your business. I’m talking about your systems, software, technology and website – these things are the lifeblood of your revenue you know. Sure, you need leads, marketing, follow up and sales too, but if you’re bringing in leads and marketing to drive traffic to your website or even to a call with you, then I guarantee this stuff is one of the biggest things preventing you from making more money. This workshop has very limited seating, so if you are interested, reserve your spot now!

If you are a business owner, there is NOTHING like attending live events. I can’t explain it but if you don’t do it often, you are really MISSING OUT. And I’m talking about ones that take you away from home overnight, not ones that you go to for a few hours one day – those are NOT the same.

You can’t run a business without paying clients and customers! And it takes exposure to a massive amount of people with your marketing to allow you the ability to follow up with just the right ones.

You see, I just got back from a really awesome event called “the Unconference” in Orlando, Florida, see above picture. It was hosted by the Women’s Prosperity Network, a really amazing organization for women in business. It’s run by a friend of mine, Nancy Matthews and her two sisters Trish and Susan; everyone calls the three of them “the sisters”, it’s fun.

I was able to give a quick story and shout out from this amazing stage and a quick training about follow up at one of the VIP lunches.  I  met some outstanding women, was blessed to discover some really cool ladies who want to work with me and had a really fun time continuing to connect further with one of my Techy VAs (and clients), Angela.

I recorded a video all about this experience plus about my own events and what people really get out of them when they decide to invest their time to attend and really work ON your business.

If you’re not where you want to be in your business right now, at this very minute – I urge you to go listen to this, please.  I share some things you want to think about and take action on. It’s only 14 min and it’s on the event page of my site – JUST CLICK HERE and then click on the video with my photo on it right at the top.

In my upcoming event specifically we’ll be going over changes and updates to what’s working and what isn’t with:

  • Social Media – all platforms
  • Video marketing
  • Websites and funnels
  • Networking and follow up
  • Sales conversations – online and offline, 1on1 or from stage
  • Live event and retreats
  • Getting free publicity and exposure
  • Finding and monetizing speaking
  • Writing books and Amazon launches
  • Product and residual income type business models
  • PLUS I always let attendees make offers and make money at my events and this event will be no different… You could make enough to pay all your travel expenses to attend plus your ticket too!

You’ll no doubt walk away with your next 6-12 month business and marketing plan in hand when you leave! (my binder alone gives you this!)

It’s your last chance to register – it’s down to the wire though because I don’t take registrations during the week of my event because I’m preparing for the events –  the materials you’ll get, the training, planning the party and fun stuff for you throughout the 3 days.  So you’ve got to  RESERVE YOUR SEAT NOW!

If you’re ready to make your mark in a bigger way, then I’m glad you are reading this blog because you’ll love the FREE Launch Your Biz Giveaway Event hosted by my friend and colleague, Maribel Jimenez. Maribel is known as the Dream Launch Mentor.

I’m so tired of seeing entrepreneurs struggle in their business to find clients, make money and have the impact I know they could if they made a decision to do whatever it took to really GO FOR IT in their business.

It breaks my heart to see so many entrepreneurs stay stuck in indecision, fear, doubt or over-thinking their plans.  I wonder how different their lives would be if they had resources to support them with all of that such as tools for overcoming fear, shifting doubt, how to simplify, overcoming procrastination, how to make big money, and marketing strategies to reach more clients than they can handle, and MORE!

This is why I’ve teamed up with Maribel and some very cool entrepreneurs to bring you the “Launch Your Biz Giveaway Event”.

Is your Email Marketing getting you the level of response you expected?   Alright… so I’m gonna get a little REAL with you here AGAIN… have you ever felt like “no one is listening” and wonder “why am I doing this?”

I’m talking about sending emails that is…and I suppose it could be other marketing strategies you’re doing too that may not be working too??

You see, when I started my business back in 2002 (yes, it’s been a long time), email marketing was pretty much the second best way to get a hold of someone. (phone or in person was always the best) It was so new and people loved it, they loved getting emails, we looked forward to it.

Now though, man you never even know if your emails are getting through the barriers! (I don’t want to use the names just in case it blocks me for saying the words!)  Too many bad people ruined it for the rest of us.

It’s upsetting because email sure is an easy way to get your message out to a LOT of people, right?

So… I get it when my clients tell me that they don’t see response when they send an email, therefore, why bother?

I know many of you have to be feeling the same disappointment when it comes to your emailing too?

Watch this video to about my Frustration with my Email Marketing ROI

So, what do we do about it?

Not send emails?

That isn’t the answer.

The thing that keeps me going is the group of you who ARE OPENING and reading them, those who do respond every now and again to let me know you’re there. THANK YOU!

And I am here to SERVE YOU – INSPIRE YOU – MOTIVATE YOU – & EDUCATE YOU on how to start up, grow and monetize a business that you’re passionate about.
If no one else cares to stop and read what I send then that’s too bad for them, I send great content!

One thing I know is true is that we can never get too busy in our lives or businesses that we stop learning new stuff.

I’m a constant learner. In fact, I’m learning a brand new program all about monetizing your YouTube Channel and videos right now!  Yep, and I plan to share all about what I’ve learned from others who are very successful at it, at my next event in November.

I also plan to share some new trends with social media marketing, especially Facebook and a few new secrets about online giveaways, contests, and summits as well as how the event market is shifting too.

You never know what you’ll get at my events, honestly, it’s where I share my best tips and strategies. That and with my VIP clients or Live Big Mastermind, that’s where I go deep on training some of the best marketing and business strategies that are working for myself and my peers and mentors “right now”.

Because things change all the time. You constantly have to be on top of the newest thing. Not that we want you to go after “bright shiny objects”, that’s not what I’m saying…. but I’m saying that if you don’t take some time out to learn a few new things about how to effectively grow and monetize your business then you’re going to get left behind.

And… that also doesn’t mean you have to put in more hours working every week. No! I say no to overtime too!

There is a way to work less and make more…believe me though, I’m STILL working on this myself as I write this to you. I don’t have it all figured out either because it keeps changing and I keep changing…. there’s always more to learn, do, and implement. I can tell you that I’m having the time of my life doing it all. I Love what I do and you should too but I really have to work on what I consciously add to my plate each year.

For the majority of us entrepreneurs, it’s “slow and steady wins the race”. I get that a few entrepreneurs out there are really good at marketing and like to make it all “look easy” but that literally infuriates me to no end. It’s NOT easy growing your own business. It can be easy to learn what to do and do it but there’s a LOT to do.
16 years into my business and I am still focused on Revenue Generating Activities you guys…. every single week. I avoid making phone calls too, just like probably most of you. But you know what? It works. Why am I sharing this with you? To hold myself accountable!!

The difference is that I’ve since been able to build a really good base of revenue coming in each month so I’m not so stressed about money or making the next sale. It’s never easy though, I invest a lot more now. This month alone I invested $3500 in one opportunity that has turned into added expenses of up to close to another $3000 just to “see if this will pay off”. I’m relatively sure it will though, I just have to “TRUST”.

Last month I ran my book launch and spent some money there and on buying books. i also designed a new marketing brochure for speaking gigs, both to the tune of almost another $1000.

Money just flies out the door now (on really productive and important things) and I’m thankful that I have it to invest so I can get to my NEXT LEVEL. But you have to keep investing.. that’s the point here. Whether it’s your time, your money or your faith, it’s all investing in the betterment of YOU.

I really didn’t mean for this to turn into a big long rant or article; I honestly just got frustrated with my email open rates and wanted to express my thoughts and relate to what YOU might be thinking as well. 😉

So where do we go from here for consistent Revenue Generating Activities?

Well, I’d love to share everything I know with you about it all plus what all I’ve learned this year and last! The only efficient way for me to do that though is to get you all into a conference room and talk about it over 3 days.

Why do you think I keep adding more events to my calendar every year? It’s because I have more to share and I want to help you. I hate to see you struggle like you are. I want to see you be able to take YOUR business to the NEXT LEVEL and FAST.

Whether you can actually attend my November Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend event or not or if you can come in March to the Love & Money LIVE! event…. maybe you can, maybe you can’t. Maybe you can’t see yourself flying across the country or even to the next state and staying in a hotel? Maybe you just don’t get what you could possibly learn and retain in 3 days with me that would make it worth your while? Maybe your circumstances are such that you have to take care of a loved one and you just can’t escape for your own “pleasure” right now?

You can tell yourself that story OR you can CHANGE YOUR STORY and come rewrite it in November.

One of my clients who came a little over a year ago to one of my events wanted to come so bad. (She wasn’t a client yet) In fact we messaged back and forth many times on Facebook about it and how she didn’t have the money to come. I forget if it was finally a phone conversation or just the fact that I was spending so much time trying to support her in her decision that she decided she could ask a family member for a loan to come out (she lived on the East Coast).

She was scared to death I remember. AND she was a HUGE INTROVERT to boot. Boy I couldn’t wait to get my hands on her at the event (and I did…. of course in a very loving way). Because she was so motivated to make that money back that she borrowed, when I asked attendees to share their “Easy Yes Offers(TM)” and taught them how, she stood right up and made an offer! She literally walked away with well over $1,000 in her pocket at that event; enough to pay back her loan. But what she got out of it more than just money was CONFIDENCE. And that is HUGE.

Now she’s taking on clients left and right and she’s even leaping out into uncomfortable waters once again by writing a very intimate story about her past in a book.. just so she can help other mom entrepreneurs like her. I’m so excited for her!

So, when people ask me “what am I going to get by coming to your event, Katrina?”. I just have to shake my head because it’s so hard to say. Although I’m a brilliant marketer, I’m not as good as some other experts out there who pull in 400 attendees into their events.

My events average around 50 people. But you know what? That’s the new trend these days! It’s about smaller, more intimate groups, retreats and places where people can really get the attention, the coaching, the insight, the breakthroughs and the connection that they’re longing for.

I mean are you really longing for sitting in a room with 300-1000 people? Do you really believe that you’ll walk away with tangible strategies and systems that will work for YOU personally? Sure it’s possible, it happens. But if you have to choose only ONE or maybe TWO events to travel to every year, which would you prefer? What do you think will really catapult you to YOUR NEXT LEVEL QUICKEST?

Hey and I’m not knocking those events by any means. I’m flying out to one next week in Orlando – it’s going to be amazing. But I’m going for different reasons and I’m in a different stage in my business than some of you may be.

What do you need to learn RIGHT NOW? Then invest in that. And if you DON’T KNOW what you need to learn then you definitely want to join me at my event because I can help you personally figure that out so you don’t waste a single dollar or month focusing on the wrong things.

I was going to write to you today about my trip to Vegas last week, seeing my mom and something she found of mine that I wanted to share, but I’ve already wrote a heck of a lot here so I’ll have to save that for next week.

I hope this was inspiring or made you think in some way differently?

I hope you want to make a bigger impact doing what you love and helping more people?

I want to show you HOW TO DO THAT if you aren’t sure or if what you are doing isn’t working.

I’m really good at this. Yes, you have to trust me on that OR take the word of about 3-4 dozen other people who have actively written or recorded testimonials for me on my website – please go take a look at them if you have any doubt.

Trust is what it’s all about after all.

With that, I’ll leave you the link to the page where you can find out more….–>> https://jumpstartyourmarketing.com/jumpstartyourbizweekend/

Granted it’s not the flashiest page or most modern looking page but it’s all true and it’s all about what your gut is telling you right now.

Do you know you need to be there with me and the small but mighty group of motivated entrepreneurs that I’m gathering?

Do you believe that something is calling you to join us no matter how hard it’s going to be to change your plans or make plans now to make that happen?

Do you feel that I “get you” and trust that you’ll get what you need?
GREAT! then this is for you! Step up and play with us and let’s get your business dialed in for the remainder of 2018 and all of 2019!

Register now…. https://jumpstartyourmarketing.com/jumpstartyourbizweekend/
