Are you having problems deciding what to sell in your business?   Do you find it confusing to share what you have to offer?   Do others find it hard to figure out what to BUY from you?

It could be that your offerings are confusing… I see this often with many entrepreneurs who “think they are clear with their messaging and offers”.

Are you offering enough different things? I’m talking about your programs, products and services… are you sure you’re meeting your ideal client’s needs with what you’re currently offering them?

I suggest you have 5 levels of offerings… let me explain!  Today I’m talking about 5 types of things you might sell in your business.

Watch this video to see what else you could offer to attract more clients but also additional income streams!

These sessions are usually scheduled for the last Friday of each month, but due to the holidays, December’s session will be held tomorrow, Friday, December 15th from 9am to 11am PST.

PPS: Ready to find out what’s really stopping you from attaining a much more profitable business? Then please go schedule a call with me, it’s urgent that you figure this out sooner than later. Go sign up at now.

Do you want to get out of Overwhelm?  Who doesn’t?

Yes, sometimes I get a bit overwhelmed too, but currently it’s in a good way. I have several fun projects on the horizon. So now I’m just trying to prioritize since I can’t do them all at once.

I recently attended a beach retreat with 34 other entrepreneurs and I got really sick… from exhaustion. Why? I had been traveling too much and I have huge plans for 2018 already that I’ve been focusing on. What I realized at that beach retreat was that I needed to STOP, breathe and figure out how to do less.

Soon after the beach retreat, I hired a new in office, local personal assistant to take a LOT of things off my plate. Whew! I cancelled two events – one this month and one in December that I originally thought I REALLY “needed” to attend but realized that I really don’t.

I also changed my plans on what I would launch starting this November. It’s so hard to keep up the pace I have been and still be here for my clients, my family and myself.
By stepping back and looking at my BIG PICTURE, I realized that what I need to double my business is already inside me!

I needed to take my own advice! PRIORITIZE – that’s what is necessary to getting me where I need to be “IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE” and I just need to stay focused.

Having an assistant and regular team meetings will keep me focused. You may not have that kind of a team just yet and that’s ok but who’s going to help YOU stay focused much less help you DETERMINE YOUR “ORDER OF IMPORTANCE”.

My experience is that you may not know what you don’t know and therefore may not see it exactly clear as to what and how YOU should prioritize to do this for yourself. Am I right?
Many of my mastermind clients and 1on1 clients are feeling overwhelmed right now too. One thing I think that I’m really good at is helping them FOCUS and PRIORITIZE on their immediate next steps so it helps take away the OVERWHELM! (for now, don’t get me wrong, it comes back which is why they hire me on an ongoing basis).

There are a few suggestions that I give to my clients that I want to share with you today. I hope you find these helpful.

    • Remember your BIG PICTURE VISION – is what’s on your plate now and what you’re spending time on now going to help get you to what you truly want your business to look like?
    • If you need to generate money and cash flow right now then – is what you are doing every single day lead generating, moneymaking activities that lead possible people to buying your products, programs and services?
    • Are you talking with people 1on1? This leads to more sales, referrals, speaking gigs and more opportunities. Don’t be shy, reach out and just call people.
    • Say NO to things that won’t serve you, even if you already committed, you can back out of some things and no one will die or think you’re a horrible person.
    • Take care of your personal needs! Get enough sleep, I know that for me, if I don’t get my 7-8 hours a night I drag through the day and am less productive no matter how much caffeine I have. Eat well too, no junk food and don’t drown your sorrow or overwhelm in alcohol (I’ve been there, done that too!).
    • Don’t worry about things that don’t affect the cash flow right now like updating your website, designing a flyer or logo, creating curriculum (without paying clients you don’t have a program!), writing blogs, attending big conferences possibly where you aren’t there solely to network for business. They will get done in due time. Push off deadlines you set for yourself for writing that book or whatever if it’s not going to produce the result you want now (unless that type of thing is your big vision).

If you want even MORE help to get out of overwhelm and stay there, then I would love to speak with you privately and we can discuss all the irons you have in the fire right now, what goals you want to accomplish and what needs to come OFF your plate. If you’re ready to STOP THE MADNESS, you can set up a complimentary call with me here:

There’s another solution too. Seriously change your plans and get to my next live training November 3, 4, & 5 in Sacramento.

I know, you’re probably saying “but Kat, going to events is why I have all these ideas in the first place and am overwhelmed!?” If you haven’t been to one of my events before, let me assure you that I do it differently. It’s more than creating BIG PICTURE IDEAS. At my events, we get you laser focused. We look at EVERYTHING you’re doing in your business and I mean EVERYTHING so that we can really help you determine YOUR BEST NEXT STEPS.

Other events usually focus on sharing how to or why to do ONE thing. Although it may sound like it’s just what you need, that ONE THING may not be your next best step!

In case you haven’t experienced me before in an event, speaking gig, webinar or other training, you may not realize that one of the things I specialize in is being able to look at your BIG PICTURE plan and goals, review what you’re selling, who you serve and how you want to design your life and business. AND THEN, only then, can we determine YOUR BEST NEXT STEPS. Once we know that, I show you how to do it all and hold you accountable… yes, for once you can have the type of mentoring that you really need.

People who don’t look at EVERYTHING you’re doing and then give you advice on what to do next are not really seeing the big picture and therefore often “misdiagnose” so to speak what they suggest you need to do next.

I get that you’re overwhelmed now and that not good!

I get that you might be stressed about money too, not making enough right now or wondering how to ever get ahead.

You may have enrolled in other people’s programs, bought products, attended live events and even coached with other mentors before. Maybe some of that was helpful, perhaps none of it was. Or maybe you are still trying to find time to complete the program or training. But how is that working for you? Are you seeing results? Are you getting clearer on how to really build a consistent money-making business? Do you have all the pieces or are you just learning things bit by bit?

All I can say (and my clients will tell you the same thing) is that I’m different. I’m the answer to you finally getting CLEAR, FOCUSED DIRECTION & HOW-TO ADVICE on what order of importance you want to do things in to:

  • Get out of overwhelm
  • Get more clients
  • Make more money
  • Work less and finally get things automated
  • Enjoy a better life!

Sound Good?

Are you ready to finally get out of overwhelm and stop grabbing at every bright shiny object that comes your way?

Join me at my next event – find out more here:

OR come to a call with me and we can discuss it all first here:

Either way, you can decide to change your circumstances if you want to. You don’t have to stay stuck.

Reach out and let me help you!!

Here’s to YOUR Sucess!

Are You Ready to Start Building a Profitable Business but don’t know how? I’ve got your solution – my new 2 Hour Masterclass!

Are you an entrepreneur who is starting a new business? Are you frustrated because you don’t have ANY money to spend on marketing but need customers RIGHT NOW? You need to know what to do right out of the gate to build a consistently profitable business fast, right?

Have you been struggling with trying to make the income you need to support your business and yourself?

Are you so focused on working IN your business that you’ve become blind to opportunities that are in front of you – opportunities that, depending on your business, could literally make you thousands more dollars each month or each year?

There’s one thing I’ve learned that is typical of most entrepreneurs. They know a lot about their area of expertise but they know very little about what makes a CONSISTENTLY PROFITABLE BUSINESS. I know what’s that’s like – I’ve walked in those same shoes.

I learned so much about building my business during the past 15 years by investing in mentors, masterminds, coaching, workshops, online trainings, conferences, and more. But the One-On-One coaching and access to my coaches really made the difference by catapulting my SUCCESS FASTER.

You see, what makes the difference is for someone to look at everything in your business, to find where the holes and opportunities exist. Many entrepreneurs are so close to what they do in their business, they are unable to clearly see where they can optimize their profit potential.

This is why I’ve created my 2 hour Masterclass that begins this Friday, Sept 29th and continues every month thereafter. Each month’s Masterclass will be held on the last Friday of each month from 9-11 am PST / 12-2 pm EST.

If you want to earn a consistent, 6 figure business, there’s no better time than NOW to start. If you want to work less and make more money doing what you absolutely love to do – now is the time to do that too.

You have to take the time to work ON your business but you NEED to know what to do and when to do it or you’ll just find yourself spinning your wheels and wasting your valuable time. Who wants to do that?

So come “TRY ME OUT” in this 2 Hour Masterclass where we will hone in on just what YOU need to work on in YOUR business right now so you can FOCUS your time and efforts more succinctly with less effort. Each Masterclass session is limited to 30 people.

Jumping on a One-on-One Call with Me is one of the FASTEST Ways to Get the Advice, Resources, Ideas and Support that you NEED when you NEED IT!

Attendees of these MasterClass calls will receive:

  • Recording of the Masterclass that you attend.
  • Feedback and support from not only me, but from everyone on the call – it’s a mini mastermind!
  • The information you need to know what to do, what to say, what to post, send, share, write, record and more!

If you are looking for high quality coaching at a value price, this is for YOU. Sign up and attend any ONE Masterclass for an investment of only $79. (You read that right, for under a hundred bucks you get to pick my brain and get a lot of direct advice for your business).

Head over to my 2 Hour Masterclass detail and registration page by clicking here. You will select the date you would like to attend, but when that class is full, you will have to wait another 30 days for the next one. Don’t delay – get signed up today!

Here’s a recipe for Success in Life using 5 Steps!

Guest blog post

By Dr. Richard B. Greene,

5 steps to success in your life


I am a huge proponent of using formulas to do things I’ve never done before. Let me give you an example, I don’t consider myself to be a great cook; just a competent one. I really enjoy good food and I view dining and the presentation of food as an art. But here’s the deal, I don’t have to be an artist to make a good meal. I can simply follow a recipe. If I don’t deviate from the recipe, chances are that I’ll make something that is pretty tasty. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t believe I’m a gourmet chef. But I can make a pretty wicked lobster bisque!

The recipe example I just gave can work with other things as well. There are plenty of examples for success in life that are solid. Some of you may have read my book, The Ten Commandments of Peak Performance. In that book, I focus on ten key areas that can significantly increase your levels of performance in life. In a sense, it is also a recipe for increasing your levels of performance so that you are operating at peak efficiency.

I think success works the same way. You can increase your chances for success substantially if you follow a recipe that others have used and that is proven to work. I’ve studied and researched the success factors of people in many different walks of life.

Here are five steps that you can take that I think are very powerful.

Step 1: Follow Your Passions
We live in one of the greatest of times. I truly believe that. Now more than ever, people have a greater chance of living a life fulfilled…whatever that means to you.

I’m a big believer in formulas. It used to be that you had to figure out what the formula for success and happiness was. If you didn’t have good role models or of you grew up in an environment that was not positive, encouraging, or growth oriented, this made things even more difficult.

Fortunately, the internet brings you information, knowledge, encouragement, and stories of success from all over the world. If you have a passion or a direction you want to pursue, chances are great that there is someone else out there that has the same thoughts. That someone has made it and they can help you make it as well!

So…not knowing what to do is a poor choice for not following your passion. Even if you can’t find examples of exactly what you want in life, you are sure to find things that are similar. From that you can extrapolate. Sure, it’s going to take some work. But everything is possible in life if you have the desire and passion.

The conventional wisdom of finding a job, slugging away for 20, 30, or 40 years, and hanging onto that job at all costs just doesn’t serve people very well. In fact, in most cases it never did. Research shows that 52.3% of people are dissatisfied with their careers or vocation.
Do what you love, and you’ll find that your life will work out. You will be fulfilled. You will make enough to pay the bills. You will make a difference to yourself, to your family, and to many others.

Step 2: Immerse Your Mind in Good Stuff
Napoleon Hill said “you become what you think about.” The book of proverbs says something similar; “For as he thinks in is heart, so is he.”

A study recently published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology confirms that you are deeply shaped by the books you read. In fact, just as watching television can chip away at your contentment, the books you read can be negative influences in your life. What you read can reflect the negative aspects of your personality, or it can serve to elevate your thoughts and turn you towards that which is positive.

Watch videos, read blogs, read books, listen to podcasts. Immerse yourself with positive things. Be very conscious and intentional about what you focus your attention on and who and what you spend your time with. What goes into your eyes and ears goes into your brain and into your heart – and it becomes who you are.

Step 3: Associate with Positive People.
Remember when you were growing up and Mom and Dad wanted to know who you were hanging around with? The reason was simple yet very powerful. If you associate with negative people or people that are engaged in activities that are immoral or illegal, you’ll tend to adopt the same thinking and behavior that they have.

It doesn’t matter if you think you are a good person. Just associating with the wrong type of individual can have a negatively profound effect on your thinking…and possibly your behavior. It is important to take stock on who is around you. If you take an honest assessment, you’ll find that not everyone is going to be the model of what you want to achieve in life. This is where some tough decision making must occur.

You may need to disassociate yourself from people that don’t serve you well or are dragging you down in life. This may be painful. You might get judged. You might suffer repercussions. This may be difficult because these people may be close friends or even family. In the case of the latter, you might wish to start by simply limiting your exposure to those people as much as you can.

When you associate with people that are like minded, that strive for the same type of betterment that you do, you’ll find that you will have very powerful allies. They will affect your success and happiness in life on both a conscious and a subconscious level. I call this very powerful action “The Power of Association.” Try it…it can be very effective.

Step 4: Have Gratitude
Successful people have gratitude. They are thankful for all that they have including all experiences; good and bad. They realize one of the keys to success is to “happily succeed rather than try to succeed to be happy.”

Dealing with challenging situations is just a matter of framing them the right way. Challenges are not meant to be seen as hurdles in the road, rather part of the road. It is the challenges in life that shape who we become because that is where the growth occurs.

Focusing on the things you don’t have in life serve no good purpose. There is a reason why one of the Ten Commandments in the bible says “You must not be envious of your neighbor’s goods.” Because it will do nothing but make you unhappy. You’ll be focusing on what you don’t have instead of what you do have.

Living in a state of lack is a huge disservice to yourself. You only see the negative that comes from not having the things you want in life. A better focus is one of abundance. Being grateful for what you have, even when you have to go through pain and failure, allows you to live in an abundant state.

A great exercise to institute the habit of gratitude is to write three things you are grateful for in the morning and in the evening. You should write these things down as opposed to just thinking about them. Writing things out takes them from the abstract into reality. It sets off a chain of commands in the neurons in the brain that lend itself to experiencing something in an entirely different way than just thinking about it.

Step 5: Get a Mentor or Coach
Too many people, the idea of getting a coach to help take them where they have never gone before is not a consideration. Not because they are against it. But because they just don’t understand the power and the value that coaching can bring. Many people think of athletics when it comes to coaches. And, that’s probably a good example of what a coach can do. An athlete who has a coach is more likely to:

  • Recovers more quickly and effectively from a bad performance
  • Learns more from a bad, and in fact every, performance
  • Develops more effectively during practices
  • Learns their talents and strengths more quickly and effectively
  • Creates a strategy to leverage their strengths to their advantage
  • Achieves more during that season

Putting athletic performance aside…wouldn’t it be great if you could do all of those things as well in your life? Of course it would! Hiring a coach to help take you places you have never been before is a very good investment.

If you are reticent to spend money on a coach you should ask yourself two questions: 1) What is the cost of failure? and 2) What is the cost of wasted time because you don’t know the best way to get what you want to achieve?

A good coach can listen to what it is you say and provide sold advice. They can be a confidential sounding board; a trusted advisor who can ask you provocative questions that help you uncover what your gifts, strengths, values, principles, true dreams, goals, and aspirations. A good coach can take all that information and help put you on the path to making those dreams become reality. Now…what’s that worth?

Like any recipe, formula, or set of instructions, these five steps are a guide. You have room for interpretation of how to execute them, but none should be discounted. They are all just as important as flour or wheat is to baking bread. If you leave those ingredients out the end result will be less than desirable.

Follow these five guidelines and you’ll begin to see a real differences as to the level of success in your life!

Are you wondering WHERE YOU STAND in your marketing…

Biz Quiz Button-TakeBizQuiz

I woke up this morning and couldn’t get back to sleep without writing this because I think it’s so important…this was confusing to me a couple years ago too when I first started joining mastermind programs and high level coaching programs.

I think it’s appropriate and timely to talk about it too because I’ve been getting lots of questions about the new programs I’m offering and how they compare to ‘other people’s mastermind and coaching programs’. In fact I decided to do a ONE-TIME TELECLASS on the subject this coming Thursday, December 3rd at Noon PST….enter your name and email here now and get access to that call.


I know many of you are reading other people’s ezines and promotions and following other coaches and mentors as well….as you should; but I’m hearing that you’re confused.

With all the coaching and mastermind options out there right now, all of the 2010 groups are now forming…not only mine but a couple of my mentors’, other coaches like me and more; you’re confused as to which one is right for you?
Which one should you join?

I know they are a big investment, not only in yourself but in the direction of your business too so you want to make the RIGHT DECISION on which one to join, correct?

Ok so let’s talk about and compare the Mastermind Groups and High End Coaching Programs that are out there, that you’re seeing…. Mind you I’m doing this to show you that I care enough about you to lay it all out on the table; I’m not trying to just tell you that you should join my mastermind group but I truly want to EDUCATE YOU on what you’re seeing out there and what the differences are and what to look for in choosing a program so it ends up being what you truly need in the coming year, not something way ahead of you or maybe even behind where you are….let’s compare….

** NOTE ** If you’re not interested in a mastermind program for yourself for next year, why not? It’s the most amazing way to fast-forward your progress, success and income this year. Check out the video I did and maybe you’ll understand more why to consider this for yourself… click here for the video.

First of all, WHY should you want to join a Mastermind group or coaching program?

It’s simple really and most of us who’ve been in them would say it was the best thing we EVER did in our business (and that’s the truth).

Being in a Mastermind Group, like my Live Big Platinum Mastermind for example, can give you:

  1. An influx of new ideas, strategies and fresh perspectives for your business. Sure you can come up with plenty of ideas on your own but will you know which ones to act on, spend money on or how to turn those ideas into big money pay days all on your own? Having a focused group of entrepreneurs and a lead mentor who can see bigger visions for you, additional opportunities and wider possibilities helps you put your big ideas into reality much faster and with more surety.
  2. Motivation and positive powerful thinking. The greatest challenge a business owner may face is staying positive and motivated on a day to day or month to month basis. We need to surround ourselves with highly motivated, energized and positive BIG thinking like-minded entrepreneurs constantly or we can easily lose steam. What happens when you lose steam? You don’t make a lot of sales right? You don’t attract a lot of clients easily do you? Instead, working with and interacting with your Mastermind group and lead mentor on a regular basis can clear those negative thoughts and replace them with positive, motivating, inspired and passionate thoughts and actions.
  3. Accountability and responsibility. One of the most difficult things for many of us entrepreneurs is to actually ‘get stuff done’. We do have many ideas like I mentioned but we don’t always know how to put them into money-making plans, products, programs, etc. and even if we KNEW HOW to get them implemented, we have no time so they still don’t get done, am I right? Your Mastermind group can help hold you accountable to your goals and project timelines plus provide a certain level of competition that will motivate many entrepreneurs to make sure they had their ‘thing’ done before coming to the next meeting.
  4. A big leap in time. In an era where time is money, we have to learn double the things in half the time. By connecting with peers and a lead mentor in a Mastermind group who have similar experiences, you tap, learn and benefit from others’ input. Especially learning from a Mentor who has been where you are and is now leaps ahead of you, they are where you want to be; it makes sense to learn what to do and NOT to do directly from someone who’s been there, made mistakes and then had successes who can show you the right path for you. This greatly shortens your learning curve by a huge margin.

Trust me, I lucked out when I first started doing these types of programs because the mentors I chose were just starting out with these types of programs themselves pretty much and their fees were still very low compared to what they are today (although still a big stretch for me at the time). I got a lot more for my money than you can typically get today in most of the programs out there.

However, there are still programs like mine; the Live Big Platinum and Platinum Plus that ARE true mastermind programs with 10-12 people in them all year long who get one-on-one access to me AND that are still affordable for the newer entrepreneur or the entrepreneur who has never done anything like this before.

I’ve now upleveled myself to offer these types of programs to you as MY next step in my business.

THE #1 REASON I did this is because being in these types of programs for me was the single best thing that catapulted my business so fast in the last few years. I wanted to offer that same type of accelerated learning, access and implementation to a select group of entrepreneurs like you who want to get there FASTER as well.
Now I mentioned a TRUE Mastermind, what is that you might ask and what’s the difference?

Aren’t all Mastermind groups the same? NNNNNOOOOOOOO!!!!

To me, a true mastermind is NOT:

  • A group of over 15 people
  • More self-learning modules in the program than one-on-one access with the lead Mentor
  • Being coached by the lead Mentor’s co-coach, not the lead Mentor themselves
  • A program where you don’t feel like someone is truly ‘with you’ working on your business all year long (Trust me, I had this issue in one of the masterminds I was a part of and I didn’t feel like my Mentor cared too much about me or what I was doing in my business hence the advice I got was not always in my best interest.)

A true mastermind to me IS:

  • A group of 8-15 like-minded entrepreneurs who are there to give as well as receive.
  • Working hand in hand with your mentor to achieve the big goals and big picture dreams for you and your business and having a good amount of monthly access to them one-on-one
  • Feeling like you are a part of a family who truly cares about you, who inspires and loves you and who would do anything for you (and people you stay in touch with for years after your group experience is ove

Either you absolutely know you want to get into ONE of these programs and you are deciding NOW which one you will join…..

Or you aren’t sure if this is the next step for you and your business, it’s a big investment and you’re not sure HOW it will pan out if you do it; meaning what will the return on investment be? This is a common question but very hard to answer because it will depend on you. It will depend on if you get into the right program for where you are now in your business and then how you commit to the group and to yourself to working the program for all it has.

If you follow many coaches and mentors and you’re finding it hard to choose then you’re not alone. We all have so much to give and very different programs and it is difficult to differentiate between what we all offer in order to make the BEST DECISION for you this coming year.

I know that many others who have mastermind programs are also very good at sales and they ‘get you in’ before you even know you’ve been gotten.
What the other guys/gals don’t tell you is:

  • They want you to believe that their Mastermind program is a TRUE Mastermind like I mentioned above, but most of them are not. Most of these types of groups are set up to coach one-to-many (a lot of manys in fact). They charge fees that they used to charge for their one-on-one masterminds (the true ones) but now for more people, typically 35-50 or sometimes 100!
  • Yet they offer NO one-on-one sessions (or just a couple per year) with the lead coach or mentor. They tell you you’ll get a true mastermind because on their sales page they show you testimonials of their ‘top’ clients who’ve worked closely with them all year and gotten huge results. These are NOT usually the people in the larger group mastermind program, they’re usually their top, high paying one-on-one clients (many now call their ‘Diamond’s’).
  • Most of us coaches/mentors can only manage 10 or so ‘top’ clients where those clients pretty much have us ‘on speed dial’ so to speak (monthly 1on1 calls, emails, emergency calls and much more 1on1 attention – usually the ONLY 1on1 monthly attention by the lead mentor/coach). This makes sense though because as we uplevel ourselves, just as you will also uplevel yourself….there are bigger visions for the company, for us, for our mission, etc. therefore our time becomes more and more limited which is why we introduce more leveraged programs – those that leverage our time more to teach many. But there just isn’t enough time in the day or month to serve hundreds or even 30 coaching clients each month or year in a one-on-one capacity.
  • They tempt you with the ‘mastermind’ concept, show you that this is truly what you need and then they offer mass group masterminds for lower, affordable investments which aren’t the same….they are like going to a big workshop 2-3 times per year and networking with the group, asking questions in the audience of the lead mentor but no real one-on-one time with the lead mentor yourself.
  • Others have added a co-coach who actually will break up the large ‘mastermind’ group into smaller groups and the co-coach will work with them on a monthly basis…but you’re still not getting the lead Mentor one-on-one.
  • You’d have to pay six times as much or more to get the one-on-one coaching sessions with them in what a lot of them call their ‘Diamond’ Mastermind programs. These are their true mastermind groups yet there are typically 10-15 max of these people. Many coaches offer this for a 6-figure investment or fee for the year which is fine and I just actually entered into one of these myself this year…but this was MY next step….it wasn’t my FIRST STEP.

You see the difference?

And I’m sure I’ll eventually uplevel myself again and get to that level (possibly sooner rather than later) of an investment for my programs as well but for now….they are still very reasonable and actually my Platinum and Platinum Plus Programs are the BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK right now if you’re looking for a TRUE Mastermind Program that will inspire you, show you the HOW, get you implementing, shift your mindset so you can think bigger and then give you the one-on-one access to ME for as much advice, resources, feedback, ideas and more that you can handle!

If this is the first or maybe second time you’re considering entering into one of these programs…my Live Big Platinum Mastermind could be just the right fit for you.

The confusion between all these different levels of so-called mastermind programs and group memberships is crazy I know. I put together a chart for mine because members were asking and my team needed it too to make sure every member received all their benefits, etc. You can view my program chart of benefits when you download the Program Information Sheet – enter your name and email here and you’ll get instant access.


What it all comes down to is how do you most like to learn and how are you most productive?

You have to know your best learning style so you choose and invest in the programs and products that fit you and how you best learn so you don’t waste your money.

I, for example, am NOT a good product learner.  I don’t have good luck purchasing a home study kit or other listen to/read type of product and then actually sitting down working my way through it. It will sit on my shelf forever unless I pass it on to an assistant to read and learn and then THEY can implement whatever it is or give me the ‘cliff notes’.

Instead, I learn best by working one-on-one with a Mentor who’s doing what I want to do or going where I want to go. Someone who’s still in the trenches themselves. Someone who’s investing in themselves as they ask me to invest in them. Someone who’s learning from other big thinkers and money makers so that knowledge will trickle on down to me as well. I learn well in a workshop atmosphere too but then if I don’t quickly act on the information I learn, it just sits on my shelf once again. Having a Mentor and true Mastermind group to hold me accountable, help guide me in all my big ideas and implementation is truly the glue for me that holds my business together while it accelerates at the speed of light from one level to the next, and the next, and the next.

Do you learn best by teleclasses, group trainings, workshops and online self-administer recordings and interaction or do you need or want more one-on-one mentoring, advice, guidance, resources, feedback and recommendations from your mentor or coach?

That’s where your decision should lie in whose mastermind or coaching program you should join.
You want to go where you’ll have the best experience, implement the most, learn and achieve the most and feel the most supported.

If you’re ready to find out how to become one of the 10-12 big thinking entrepreneurs that I accept into my highly interactive Live Big Platinum Mastermind or one of the 4-5 highly motivated, fast-moving, big thinking entrepreneurs that I will mentor personally in my Platinum Plus Private Mentoring Program in 2010 then request your Program Information Sheet here now AND get access to the FREE ONE-TIME Informational Teleclass that I added to review and compare my programs and others too – it’s Thursday, December 3rd at Noon (12:00 pm) PST.


I hope this cleared up a little confusion for many of you who’ve been questioning whether to join an annual mastermind program for 2010 or which one is the right fit for you?

I’m excited to speak to those of you who are ready to step up and LIVE BIG with me in 2010!

Those who personally download the Information Sheet and submit your application to me no later than Friday, December 18th at 5:00 pm PST will ALL receive an Interview with me to make sure this program is a good fit for you just as much as you’re a good fit for my style of coaching and what you can contribute to the group as well.

Here’s to creating and enjoying the business and life of your dreams!
