Can you believe that on the day Jason and I were so excited for him to finally be done with his radiation and chemo appointments (yesterday)….that immediately following his last treatment, he was in so much pain they rushed him to the ER and found he had blood clots in his lungs! Excuse my language here but What The Frig! 

We are so disappointed mind you that this stupid cancer journey is not yet behind us. I know it will never be behind us with all the regular appointments you have to do following and for the rest of your life but geez already, give him a break.

So, yes, that’s what I’m dealing with this week. So cancel the networking events, cancel my trip to LA next week, it’s more important that I’m here with him. It’s just so disappointing and frustrating. I’m hoping I don’t have to postpone my free webinar I’m giving tomorrow bright and early too as I feel like I’m coming down with a cold. I’m going to see what I feel like when I wake up but if you’ve registered for that, make sure you check your email before 9 am PST! Here’s the page to register however if you haven’t yet done so, it’s going to be good whether I do ittomorrow OR next week, trust me.

I’m sorry to be such a Debbie Downer today on you but you know what one of the nurses said yesterday….just talking out loud to us in the room….she said “Well everybody gets some kind of cancer these days, it’s just so common”. So be prepared. Don’t focus on it of course but get your business ready, and get prepared “just in case” you can’t work at it daily like you are now. Plan for the “What If” and be grateful when nothing happens.

This is why I’m just so passionate about two things….

  1. Helping you make more money in your business while having it more leveraged and systematized so you’re not working so hard AND
  2. Having the love of your life in your life so you can have someone by your side, in good times and in bad. It’s what I’ve been talking about for years now:

Love + Money (+ Health) = Complete Happiness

Please come talk with me if your business is NOT set up well for automated marketing, systematized selling processes, leveraged revenue streams and effective online lead generation. The time is now, do not wait to pass GO, do not wait to collect $200. It doesn’t cost a dime and it will save you (or make you) thousands of dollars in targeted action steps. –>>> www.AskKat.biz

Don’t get sucked in to someone telling you that you should do it this way or that way and having that be the ONLY way you make money or grow your business. ONE way doesn’t work for the majority trust me.

 

I wanted to share a few of my “working remotely” resources and tips – this is a picture of me working at one of Jason’s treatments in the cancer center this week. It’s freezing in there, sweats are in order even though its 100 degrees out!

Working Remotely Resources:

  1. Logmein.com – I love this resource because it allows me to access my desktop from anywhere and any computer. I realize many of you work from your laptop and hence when you travel you take your laptop and your whole business and files with you, that’s great. But for those of you who have a desktop computer at your home/office (I have a big giant Mac), you can’t take that with you when you travel OR in case you have to go back and forth to the hospital or somewhere else and work on a daily basis, it’s nice to be able to access your files from anywhere. I bring my laptop along but then I don’t have to double up all my files or move too much over to my laptop and it stays pretty secure without my entire business on it. It’s like $79/year I believe so not that expensive. 
    • Also as a division of Logmein. they offer a screen share software called join.me. I use this now for my webinars, like the one I’m doing tomorrow. It’s not a “perfect” system for doing webinars but I don’t do that many at this time so it’s good enough. Plus I can use it with clients to show them how to do stuff on social media or their websites, etc. It’s $19/mo.
  2. Carbonite.com – This is the remote data backup system that I use on my desktop to protect my files. I highly recommend you get an online backup system because let’s face it, you won’t manually back up your files as much as you hope to so it’s better to be protected. And for like $59/year it’s a super good deal. It runs while I’m sleeping too so no down time. Here’s the site to go check it out.
  3. Filezilla.com – This is an FTP free software that I use to upload files to my website so that I can just use a link for someone to be able to access them. If you want to have someone be able to download or view a PDF or listen to an MP3 file for example as a freebie you may have offered or as part of a paid product or program, you will most likely want to upload that file to your website so it can be linked. The days of attaching files to an email are long gone, especially if that file is many Megabites large which MP3 files are.
  4. WordPress.org – The .org is different than the .com apparently, I learned this from my website techy team. The .org templates allow you a lot more flexibility, functionality and user friendly layouts with opt in capabilities and so much more. Don’t get sucked in to the free templates, invest in your website, it’s actually YOUR MOST IMPORTANT MARKETING TOOL besides yourself! What I love about my wordpress websites is that I can login from anywhere and update a page or add a post, it’s amazing. 
    • Did you know that I have an entire Website and Techy Services Department in my Company that you can utilize? It’s for that jumpstart you need with your own site or the new site you need but aren’t sure who to have build it for you. We’re the best team on the internet because you get me – sales and marketing strategist and big picture website planning PLUS my extremely knowledgable website and techy specialists. We typically only handle clients sites or ezines, social media work, etc. that we’re already working with but ask me more about it if you’re in the market right now, we might be a very good fit for you!
    • Contact me here about websites and techy work now or SIGN UP for a 60 min Jumpstart Your Website Planning Meeting with me 1on1 and let’s figure out what you need (no obligation to use our services beyond the planning call by the way!).

P.P.S. – Because the truth is that most of you need to be doing almost everything I share with you in my videos and newsletters yet you’re ignoring me, hiding your head in the sand, or you just don’t open the emails because you don’t want to know. And frankly this is what’s hurting your business. 

Instead I would rather see you stop working so hard at things that are not working and instead learn what you need to do to jumpstart your business in 90 days and over the next year so that you don’t have to work so hard, you can systematize things you’re doing and even delegate things that you don’t like to do or don’t know how to do but still need to be doing so that more things get done, more prospects get reached, more sales get made and more money goes in your pocket.

But even better than that is the bigger impact you make on more people in this world.

So join me in November and let’s jumpstart your business shall we?

Need to make a few business shifts possibly?

One thing I see that is pretty common with the women business owners that I work with is that they don’t always feed their own needs and desires first. I believe this is hurting your business if this is you.

I’ve been guilty of this too at times, no one is perfect. But these days I’m relatively aware of watching out for this on a weekly basis and I urge you to be as well. Because what I know is that if you’re not completely happy in your personal life right now or sometimes, it will affect the success and running of your business.

In addition to feeding your own soul, you also need to be prepared – mentally and physically, for starting, growing and running an efficient, consistent, moneymaking business.

Other things that affect your success and even your profits are:

  • Having people in your life that don’t fully support you – they could discourage you, drain your valuable entrepreneurial energy or worse, bad mouth you and what you’re striving to accomplish.
  • Doubting yourself, your abilities, how much you’re worth, and thinking you’re not good enough – these limiting beliefs most likely stem from a childhood experience but you can shift them now, wherever you are in your life if you decide to.
  • Lack of clarity around what you’re doing from the big picture all the way down to the nitty gritty details of what you need to be doing every single day in your business.
  • Not having a clear plan for your business start up, its growth, generating consistent revenue, expansion ideas, team development and/or management and even time management so you don’t end up doing it all yourself.
  • Lack of accountability – entrepreneurs are typically the creative types and most of us need someone other than ourselves to stay on top of us, our weekly activities, project management and even completion of projects so we stay on task.
  • The know-how – just because you decided to become an entrepreneur or start selling products and services of some kind doesn’t mean you know HOW to do that and HOW to be successful and most importantly profitable. Get the training and insight you need before it’s too late and you have to go back and get a JOB!

So, where do you need to make some shifts? In your personal life, the business or with your own headtrash? Try to evaluate yourself, really sit with these ideas and points and see if something could improve. See if you need to have a conversation with a loved one. See if you need to get together a better plan.

Maybe it’s time to shift!

After all, as entrepreneurs, we always need to be open to evolution, especially evolution of ourselves.

Which types of business shifts do you need?

  • A better support system
  • Increased confidence to charge what you’re worth and get it
  • Clarity around what you’re selling and to whom
  • Focused action plan or marketing plann to bring in the money
  • Accountability plan to stay on track of tasks and the marketing
  • More training around being a more productive and profitable entrepreneur
  • Other?

Don’t undervalue what you really need, list out what’s missing and see where you can make a shift.

To find out more about how you can make these shifts or identify them in the first place, I urge you to come talk with me in a complimentary business strategy session. One thing that makes me different from many other business and marketing coaches is that I pay attention to your other needs and desires and how they all work together to create your happiest life ever. It’s never too early in your business to have a discussion with me, I’ve been known to save people thousands of dollars and months of time with this one call.
