Forget about Lions, Tigers, and Bears! It’s strategy, systems, and sales you need to worry about! 

Whether you’ve been in business for a few years or you’re brand new to the game, you’re probably already aware of how important these are!

I call them the “3 S’s” (Strategy, Systems, and Sales) – and they each have the power to make or break your business.

The 3 S's - Strategy, Systems and Sales have the power to make or break your business! ~Katrina SawaClick To Tweet

With the proper profit-focused plan, a solid set of systems established, and professional sales training YOU CAN:

  • Achieve your income goals and start living a life you LOVE

  • Grow and develop your business into something you’re PROUD of

  • Defeat the overwhelm you’re feeling right now and sleep PEACEFULLY at night

As someone who has been where you are, I know the stress, worry, and frustration of trying to grow a business on your own. There are so many pieces of conflicting advice out there. Who do you trust? Who should you listen to?

Where do you even begin to get help with my strategy, systems and sales?

Don’t worry! I’m here to help! One of the things I’m FANTASTIC AT is talking through the sales conversation with someone, one-on-one or in a group, and giving you THE WORDS to use in YOUR conversations so you feel empowered, confident and assertive enough to enroll more clients into your AMAZING programs so YOU can start bringing in that MONEY!

Another one of my super powers is guiding entrepreneurs through setting up systems that save them time, energy, and money!! A savvy system is worth its weight in gold in your business, but it takes someone knowledgeable and experienced to implement the right systems and strategies that will really make an impact.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out my blog post on Business Efficiency yet, just click here or the image below…  It will really help you understand the “what” and “why” of business systems.

I LOVE getting a chance to help other entrepreneurs create their personal road map to success! And that’s exactly what we’ll do at Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend, and you’re invited!

The JumpStart Your Biz ‘In a Weekend’ Event is all about being able to:

  • Identify what you really want in life, your biggest passions and how to express them through an authentic-based, money-making business model.

  • Put your marketing on autopilot – so you have more time in your life to LIVE and ENJOY your life and the things that matter most to you.

  • Create your systematic marketing & follow-up system so you are able to stay in constant contact with your clients & prospects – online and offline.

  • Brainstorm new, easy, additional sources of income such as ebooks, home study kits, audios and more… that you can go home and start selling right away

  • Leverage your message into high-end coaching and program offerings, joint venture opportunities, memberships and more advanced products and services … so you maximize your revenue per hour spent AND your impact on the world!

  • Learn how to incorporate and monetize speaking opportunities, guest appearances, publicity, radio shows, video, social media, writing a book to highlight yourself as the expert you are and so much more.

I’M IN!! THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I NEED!! 

If you’re: 

  • Struggling to make a profit in your business

  • Feeling stressed and confused by all the advice out there

  • Overwhelmed by your “to-do” list and feel like you’re not sure what the next step should be

  • Aware you need systems and automation set up to help you save time and serve your clients but you don’t know where to begin

There’s no time to “wait” to figure this out, you need to crack the code on what’s going to make you more consistently profitable right now! Or else right? Or else you have to go back and get a JOB, or else your significant other might give you an ultimatum to quit the biz, or else you’re going to have to start selling stuff just to pay rent!

Talking About Money

Talking About Money

When I’m talking about money, a catchy song from the 70s immediately comes to mind.
OMG do you remember that song….For the Love of Money? I had to ask Google… who sings the song with money, money, money, money…. MONEY in it… It was the OJays by the way! I didn’t even know the actual name of the song much less who sung it, fascinating… yet we can all sing along to that part, right!?

Check it out! I found a short clip of it:

I was just sitting here trying to figure out what message you all could use today, what would serve you, what is top of mind with my clients right now and people I’ve met out networking, and they’re all talking about money in one way or another.

Hear me out…

You’ve heard the phrase: “Money is energy”, right? 

I also like:

'Money Follows Speed!' -- More money will come to you when you make faster decisions and take faster action.Click To Tweet (I use this a lot at my events to showcase examples of such which I’m going to get into below.)

I was just thinking that a lot of people I meet are fearful a bit about talking about money, about asking for money, about mentioning their pricing, about charging more.

Let’s face it, as an entrepreneur – you can’t be this way at all. You have to find a way to get beyond your fears and potentially get outside your comfort zone so you can talk about money and actually MAKE more money!!

This week alone, money has come up in many ways:

  • I spoke with two money coaches this week who serve women
  • I spoke with 3 new clients about their money goals
  • I spoke with about 8 clients or members of my Int’l Entrepreneur Network and my Int’l Speaker Network who need to make more money and get clients pretty darn quickly and we gave them tips
  • I’ve had discussions with financial planners myself and a real estate investor about how they want to help others build wealth
  • I’ve heard from a couple clients who had great money-making weeks!

So much of what I do and speak about is about money.

You might not have this much talk about money in your day-to-day lives and it occurred to me that this is why I’m sooooo comfortable talking about my pricing, programs, asking for people to attend my events and buy my stuff… is that I’m always in the conversation.

How can you get more in the conversation around money on a more consistent basis too?

I swear on my life that this will be so helpful for you to do, I promise over time, you too will get so much more comfortable with the money conversation that you won’t feel sleezy or salesy anymore.

You have to sell though. You have to market. You have to make offers. You have to have sales conversations. You can’t hide from this or you aren’t going to be successful.

One of the things I’m SUPER GREAT AT is talking through the sales conversation with someone, one-on-one or in a group and giving you THE WORDS to use in YOUR conversations so you feel empowered, confident and assertive enough to enroll more clients into YOUR AMAZING PROGRAMS!

I want to help you make more sales easily and authentically so you can impact so many more with your gifts…

Let me give you an example from one of my live events:

One time I had a pet psychic attend my event and she was an extreme introvert (maybe some of you can relate). I love getting my hands on introverts, it’s so fun! So part of what we do at my events is CREATE & SELL what I call, Easy Yes Offers. We do this in the room and I help you do this so that everyone literally has something to sell (to the room). Then people stand up and give us their pitches, right on the spot and then I say, “ok who wants that offer?” and people raise their hands, the one who made the offer goes around and either collects the CASH or a credit card, they make the transaction ON THE SPOT mind you, and the person is usually FLOORED with the fact that they just made $300 or sometimes even $1,000!!

Yes so the pet psychic gal, wasn’t really participating, she was just listening and watching, and I was watching her. Then once a bunch of people had shared their offers and money was flying around, I asked her to stand up and share hers. She said a polite “no thanks, I don’t have one”. And I said “oh yes you do… I’ll bet over half the room has pets here and you can work virtually as well as in person right?”. She said “yes”. I said “Okay, stand up and let’s see, what could you offer…”, we brainstormed it out right there on the spot, she was happy with it and spit out the offer (reluctantly) and boy if like 5 or 6 people didn’t raise their hands immediately to buy it!! I bought it too!! From stage I handed her my credit card!!

Did she get outside her comfort zone? YES

Was it worth it? I’d say so, it paid for her ticket and travel to the event!

What was the REAL lesson here?

  • That you have to SHOW UP IN PERSON sometimes, you can’t always just sit behind your computer.
  • You don’t know what you don’t know… well, until someone shoves you outside your comfort zone or teaches you.
  • You have to just ACT. If she had said an absolute no to me and not stood up, she wouldn’t have learned that she had a great offer for ANYONE, ANYWHERE and at any event she ever goes to. She can make money daily after this experience. She wouldn’t have made a dime. She may have regretted it later too, kicking herself wondering why she just couldn’t take the leap in faith and let herself experience this.

What are YOU doing when it comes to experiences like this?

Do you sit and wait it out?

Do you say, well maybe later, not now?

Do you think, oh I can’t do that?

STOP IT! You’re slowing down and even sabotaging your own success. You deserve more and you deserve it now, not someday.

I want to extend an invitation to you that is not just to another event that I host, it’s to a CHANGE OF PERSPECTIVE for you about your business and how you’re running it, marketing it and more.

Isn’t it time that you took faster action so you can see faster results?

Isn’t it time that you stop waiting until you think everything is perfect, the stars align and money magically appears into your bank account and instead just go make it happen?

I’m here and willing to support you, guide you and even push you outside your comfort zone (in a very safe, loving environment by the way) so you can see bigger success in your business so much faster.

This is what you’ll experience at my next Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend… all of this and so much more!! It will honestly be one of the best investments and experiences in your entrepreneurial journey thus far.

 

I hope and pray that you consider registering ASAP and just making it happen, no more excuses. Bring a friend to save on hotel costs, do whatever you have to do and let me get my hands on your business this November!

Technology – How it Affects Business Efficiency Increasing Cash Flow

As business owners we all know that marketing and sales are what we need to do to create or increase cash flow, right? It’s pretty common sense stuff when you think about it, but actually DOING it is a whole other story.  We’re all pressed for time, doing a million things and everything seems to come at us at a fast pace. Technology was supposed to HELP us get more done, and in most cases it does. But, it also complicates things, too.

I just did a presentation the other day about marketing… but it was more than just marketing, I started out talking about WHY we need to do a lot more marketing first and it all came down to……… TECHNOLOGY!

Technology is part of business and business efficiency increases cash flow.

Follow with me here for a minute….

With more forms of technology being used (email, SMS texting, video marketing, social media, robo-calling, etc…) information is hitting us from all directions at lightning speed. It turns into a vicious cycle. This huge increase in amount and speed of information is making it harder to get people to pay attention which means we (you and me) just have to do MORE marketing.

The days of just sending one email out to our list or doing one post or even a Facebook Live to generate leads is GONE. Plain gone. These activities are no where near enough to get anyone to pay attention to you or your message, much less take action to purchase our products or sign up for our course and events.

That means we have to do more.  If we don’t DO MORE…our sales will fall off and that cuts our cash flow.

But to do more it takes more time right?

Well, it definitely could… IF you’re not being efficient.

Systems Increase Efficiency and Efficiency Increases Cash Flow

This is one reason I focus so much on teaching you systems. Systems for lead generation, marketing, follow up, sales and even systems to manage clients, your business, your team and so much more.

It takes a little bit of effort and time to LEARN what systems you need, what software perhaps, or technology and then learn HOW to implement those systems so that your business efficiency increases cash flow.

FOR EXAMPLE:

For a great lead generation system online, you want to have:

  • A well written landing page with a good call to action, what will you give away for free? Something that your ideal client really wants (not just what you think they need).
  • An opt in box, some way to collect their email and name on that page is critical. Ideally, a form NOT generated from a plugin on your WordPress either because that isn’t hooked up to a system that can send auto replies. You want an email marketing software that makes you compliant and will send an auto email reply (we call that an autoresponder).
  • The autoresponder set up, maybe more than just one email in that series too, it can be multiple emails set to send by day – day 0, the day they opt in, possibly day 2 to make sure they went and listened or downloaded your freebie, day 5 to ask them to come to a call with you perhaps or take a next step, day 10 with a good piece of other content for education along with call to action, etc.
  • This system would also hopefully include a prompt for YOU to call them to follow up, a prompt for you to MAIL THEM something in the mail if you can get their phone number and email address either at the time of opt in OR in subsequent emails when you get them to sign up for a call or other fun thing… ask for MORE contact info at that time.
  • All of this almost can be automated. And there could be more to it… but we’d have to look at your whole business model and your goals to determine what else.

I help clients with this stuff all the time you know… I’m not just about helping you with jumpstarting your business, marketing, website, sales, etc. I’m about helping you REDESIGNING YOUR BUSINESS TO FIT THE TYPE OF LIFESTYLE THAT YOU REALLY WANT.

This involves your life, your business, your relationships, your self-confidence, your technology and systems, your pricing and LITERALLY EVERYTHING that it takes to get you where you want to go.

Keep in mind that I’ve been helping entrepreneurs do all of this for 17 years now. I know a lot about a lot and I keep learning more myself too, we all have to or we’ll get stagnant.

If you want REALISTIC, PRACTICAL & PROVEN ways to jumpstart your business, get more clients, stop stressing and being in overwhelm while building a business you’re proud of, that makes a big impact on others AND brings you a good amount of money in the process then you want to ATTEND MY LIVE EVENTS. Especially the next one, it’s my signature Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend event.

I want to share some book publishing tips with you, regardless of how you think you want to publish, or when, check this out.  Hey friends, have you wanted to become a published author but haven’t taken the plunge yet in writing your own book?  When I got started writing books, I participated in a compilation book. It was much easier to just write one chapter and have someone else coordinate the publication of the entire book and whoala! I was a published author! Now I am in 6 compilation books and have two full books of my own – 4 of which are now International Best Sellers. I say this because becoming an author has “changed me” dramatically with my confidence, belief in myself and my abilities and it’s gotten me numerous opportunities for publicity and exposure as well over the last 13 years now that it’s been since I did the first one. Watch this video to learn time and money saving tips on how to do this before you enter into any contract or book writing endeavor.

Trust me! There are so many things to know about writing a book, especially if you plan to sell it and want to make any money with your book. Because the money will not come from the sales of the book most likely, it will come from other things you have in place in your business! One big tip when you’re writing a full book of your own is to WRITE THE BACK COVER COPY FIRST. My friend and book coach/mentor, Christine Kloser said this to me years ago and it stuck. It also makes great sense because your back cover is what gets people to want to BUY your book so you have to know what that “transformation” is that they will experience when reading your book. Start there and the rest will be easier. Do you want to have all the clients you can handle running to your door every month? Then become a published author, write multiple books and/or become an author in a compilation book where you just write one chapter for now if that’s all you can muster but get started now. Being an author has changed my life, up-leveled my confidence and opened a lot of doors for me. In 2018 I gathered 26 others to participate in a compilation book that I published, called Jumpstart Your _____, it went to International Best-Seller in 3 countries! I’m hosting one again this year and I’d LOVE to have some of you participate!!

  • Imagine, holding YOUR OWN book in your hands before 2019 is done!
  • Imagine what YOUR CLIENTS and prospects will say when they find out YOU ARE A PUBLISHED AUTHOR!
  • Imagine what your friends and family will say?
  • Imagine HOW DIFFERENT YOU WILL FEEL!

It can be super easy for you to become a published author, you know. You may not see that now but you have to trust me. With the books that I publish, I include business and marketing coaching as well with your participation and investment. Not a lot of other publishers do that nor are all of them business and marketing coaches. When you decide to write a chapter in a book like this, not only do you become a published author, the book can become your biggest lead generation strategy. When people read your chapter, they will want to know more, learn more and talk with you; it just works. Because I have a marketing focus with these books, you can get “your story out” but you can also get your “marketing message” out in the hands of those who potentially can work with you. I show you how to use these books as a marketing tool, how to sell them, promote them and integrate them with everything you’re doing in your life and business. I would love to talk with any of you who are interested at all in this type of opportunity. Please don’t sit back and wait, thinking things like: “I’m way too busy to do this right now” or “I don’t know what to write about” (we help you figure that out) or “I can’t afford to do that right now” (we make it stupid easy for you TO afford it). Instead… come talk with me in a free chat about books and what being an author can do for you in your business this year and beyond… it can forever change you!!

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.

Let me tell you about my WORST year in business 

Writing about my worst year in business is hard, because I’m better at talking about it. That’s why I made a video. It’s a story that I tell a lot at my live events. It was such a transformational year for me. I hope the lessons that I learned and share in this video will be helpful for you, too.

Don’t want to hear about my worst year in business?

Do it anyway! Don’t be too busy to overlook something that can support you whether you’re struggling, thriving, overwhelmed or in a funk. Afterall, we all go through good times, so/so times and bad times while building our businesses. Sometimes learning how other people navigate the ups and downs can really help us learn what to do and not do when it’s our turn!

(PS This story also has to do with my best year ever! You’ll see. I hope you watch and share with me your takeaways.)

If you’re reading this and you STILL HAVEN’T WATCHED that video about my Worst Year in Business Ever, then I urge you take a few moments to go watch it now and you’ll see more of what I mean here… Stop being too busy for your own good and take the time to get the support and clear advice that YOU need to grow this business faster, will you?

Your thoughts on virtual trainings and courses

Recently I was prepping my materials and PowerPoint for my Speaker Success Bootcamp and it reminded me to ask you about virtual trainings and courses. Virtual trainings and courses can be the course YOU TAKE to help you learn how to run your business OR they can be the courses you OFFER for sale yourself.

  • Do you use virtual trainings and courses in your business? Host them?
  • Want to hold some?
  • Think you could make a lot more residual income if you offered virtual trainings and courses?
  • Do you attend virtual trainings and courses or buy them yourself?
  • All good questions right?

I think we all want to find some residual income streams, am I right? There’s some easy business models that fit the bill for this such as:

  • Affiliate Marketing (making money referring programs, products, systems and technology) – I make a few hundred dollars a month right now using affiliate marketing. Some of my friends make thousands each month; it’s a much bigger strategy for them.
  • Membership Programs (having people pay you a monthly fee to get recurring training or knowledge of some sort from you) – I’m inching up with my Int’l Entrepreneur Network now for this, at $7/month, you can make a nice bit of cash each month if you can get a few hundred people (or even a few thousand!). It’s not as easy as it sounds however.
  • Then there’s creating and running virtual trainings and courses, perhaps doing them over and over again live OR boxing them up into Home Study Programs or Courses after you do them live. I have a few of those and I’m actually thinking of bringing some LIVE trainings back this year and next year. I’d love to hear your thoughts about a few of the programs that could help you jumpstart your business this year? I created a quick poll on Facebook. Will you go take the poll for me?? I’d really appreciate your input.

— >>>> Take Kat’s Quick One Question Poll Now <<<< —

============================================================

JOIN ME for upcoming calls – look on my event page, or review recent ones on my YouTube!

============================================================

Here’s a quick tip about creating virtual trainings and courses:

FIRST: Figure out which type of program will fit YOU, Your Lifestyle, Your Personality and Your Clients. That means, brainstorm about and determine if you should host an ongoing program, or what I call a “start/stop program” that has a specific start date and end date (could be more difficult to fill on time if you’re new to this). Do you want a short term (3-6 week) or longer term program (90 days)? Do you like the 30 day challenge model with daily interaction? The decision is yours however you want to decide carefully based on many factors:

  • How you like to deliver
  • How your clients like to attend or consume info
  • How likely it is that you have hot prospects
  • Price you want to charge
    • Will this be a lower priced offering to get people to “try you out” or a deeper, more comprehensive training farther down your “funnel” and more expensive?

Streamlining, systematizing and delegating more in your business can allow you more free time, vacation time and self-care or family time you know. It is possible, but you have to make time to implement these kinds of offers in your business.

YOU can do this and I can help!! 😉 Reach out and let’s chat!! I can support you around a LOT more than just marketing and business stuff you know. I help with the ENTIRE JOURNEY. I’ll do a FREE Call with you this month… just answer the questions here to get started. XOXO Here’s to creating and enjoying a life full of lots of LOVE & MONEY!!

Catch this Facebook Live with me and my friend PeggyLee Hanson where we discuss book formatting, publishing, being an author, compilation books, and speaking… it’s all so vital to being a true expert in your industry! PeggyLee is one of the speakers at my 2019 Speaker Success Bootcamp this week.
Get tips for WHAT to write, how to publish and Kindle publishing needs.
One thing we talked a lot about is BOOK FORMATTING – of your ebook or print book.

Proper book formatting is absolutely vital to having it read or purchased and especially to getting RAVE REVIEWS!

No reader likes a poorly formatted book or one that’s hard to navigate without easy online click to chapter links for example with ebooks.
The visual experience of your book is something to spend a little time and money on for sure.

Here are a few book formatting tips for ebooks:

  1. Make the content easy to read, meaning use words most people use and write like you talk perhaps
  2. Put bulletpoints in and paragraph breaks often so it’s not just paragraph after paragraph of content
  3. Make it easy to click to each chapter from within the Table of Contents
  4. Be careful adding too many pictures, it will make your file very large and not as easily downloadable for users, most ebook readers prefer text only
  5. Add links to pages in your website for easy clicking and opting in for free stuff!

Here are a few book formatting tips for print books:

  1. Have enough white space so the text isn’t all crunched together please, that’s just annoying
  2. Have easy to scan copy with lots of smaller paragraphs just like in the ebooks, bulletpoints, numbers perhaps if you’re sharing steps to something and even pictures I think. 
  3. Pictures will add pages to your book if you haven’t written something very long or if you want to spread out the copy a bit. Be careful using pictures that are only good if used in color, color is VERY EXPENSIVE to print in a book! Think about adding a color version to your book on your website perhaps if the pictures really are better in color, then you can link to it from your chapters and also hopefully get people on your email list!
  4. Please remember to drive people to your website whatever you do… add in things perhaps like “Action Steps” at the end of each chapter, or a “Book Resources Download Page” for audios, video content and more. 
  5. Use a header and footer for your pages, it can change for left or right sided pages also so you can alternate what’s on those, but use that space to include your business name, website or title of your book even.

So when I returned, I decided to do a Facebook Live for those of you following me all about video marketing as well… did you catch it? If not I’ve linked it on my blog this week and you can catch it here.

My friend Marcia O’Malley and I were sharing tips on how to become a lot more successful in your business by using video in various ways to attract clients, share your message, make offers, engage followers and educate clients.
