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!

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/

There are bonuses, 3 great speakers that I haven’t even added to the page yet and they are awesome! Plus, what if YOU make money selling your Easy Yes Offer (that we create for you in the room) and it actually doesn’t even cost you a dime to attend because of that!

All it takes is a decision. A decision to make a different life for yourself. A decision to step it up and take charge of your life.

Here’s to creating and enjoying a life full of lots of LOVE & MONEY!! (yes I talk about Love too…. )

If Only My Dog Could Talk

Do you have a dog? A cat? Do you wish they could talk and/or understand you when you did?

Welcome to my world this last week….

We have this very loveable, wonderful dog, our pet sitters call her “Sweet Willow” and they rarely want to give her back.

But, Willow has HIGH ANXIETY. No matter what we try, she can’t seem to stop being scared of stuff like loud noises, the whole house fan, vacumn (no surprise there I know), fireworks terrify her and even when one of us raises our voices (even if it’s just out of excitement) – she runs and hides in my clothes closet (that’s her safe space).

We’ve tried a lot of things to calm her down in these instances and we’ve had her 5 years now, you’d think she’d calm down, but no.

I just wish she could talk and we could tell her – it’s all going to be ok, the fireworks will be over soon, nothing is going to hurt you…. you know?

It literally breaks my heart to see her sulk away… and it happens every single day about something.

So Jason started doing this CBD oil business recently and we’ve been giving her some of the CBD dog treats but not a lot has changed. It seems better when we do give her the drops however so we’ll see…

Any other suggestions from anyone out there?  Please leave your tips in the Comments below.

Want info about Jason’s CBD oil biz? It’s called Hempworx and I helped him build a little website for himself this past week at my Jumpstart Your Biz Online Workshop – click here to check it out!

Are you ready to Jumpstart Your Biz?

Are you an entrepreneur or a business owner who needs to make more money? Do you LOVE what you do but need to make a bigger impact?

I’ve found that many entrepreneurs who come to me for business and marketing coaching are actually experts in their field or industry and they may have learned WHAT they need to do. But they don’t necessarily know how to implement the things they need to do.

The result is, they start procrastinating. Then the limiting beliefs set in.

They start wondering if they have what it takes to make money doing what they love to do and then they start thinking of giving up!

The problem for many is that they don’t have a plan. They aren’t sure where to start.  They can’t decide what the most important priorities are to create a profitable business without working themselves into burn out.  This is a common problem for many entrepreneurs and business owners.

If you want to work less and make more money or if you want to create a 6 or 7 figure business, you have to get over the fears that most business owners face at one time or another.

You need to learn what you need to do, what systems you need in place and where you need to focus – no matter whether you are starting your business or if you’ve been in business for several years.

If you don’t know where to start or if you are not seeing the results you need or desire, it’s time you get help from someone who has done the work and who knows how to get you on a path to prosperity.

I’ve created an event called Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend where you can learn everything from A-Z to start, grow, market, develop systems for and make money with the business you love!

Just listen to what other attendees say about my Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend Event in the video below:

Are you someone who is working too hard, but not making the money you need to make in your business?  Do you have limiting beliefs that are holding you back from reaching the financial goals you’ve set for yourself and your business?

Head over to www.jumpstartyourbizinaweekend.com to see all of the topics we will cover in just 3 days, November 1st – 3rd, 2018.  There’s no better time to make the investment in yourself and in your business.

Those who attended my Live Big Event earlier this month got 3 intensive training days learning what to do to Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend! Seriously, live events are a lot of work and those of you who do them will likely agree.

But I have to tell you that I leave these events energized because I see how much my attendees love this interactive training and the opportunity to network with others.

There so much content packed into these events. Some attendees need to take BABY STEPS to turn their business around and make it a consistent, income producing business. Some need help creating a business that runs smoothly; one that still gives them an opportunity to enjoy their life. Wherever you are in your business, the intent is all the same. To give you the information, tools and steps to take to make more money doing what you love!

Attendees of my Live Big Events also LOVE the segments where I teach you how to create EASY YES OFFERS that convert! It’s so much fun for me to watch how quickly the audience becomes energized when we talk about making FAST CASH!

I can often see the light bulbs go off when my attendees have those “AH-HA” moments. I have to admit, I really LOVE what I do!

And members of my Live Big Mastermind enjoy a couple of days’ retreat that’s designed just for them following my Live Events. They find the investment of this additional time worthwhile because they can discuss in depth more topics and questions that have come up while they are at my Live Event as well as other business challenges they are having.

If you’ve never attended one of my Live Events, I invite you to go to JumpstartYourMarketing.com/events and look at the 2018 schedule of my upcoming Live Events. Many attendees return for additional training at subsequent Live Events because I’m constantly adding new and updated content.

I wanted to talk to you today about delegating and leveraging more in your business.

When I talk to entrepreneurs about delegating, many of them tune me out. Why? Because they are doing it all themselves!!!!

For those of you who are doing it all yourself, STOP!

Let me share some ideas with you on why you would WANT to delegate. Some of you may have tried to delegate before and maybe it didn’t work out well. I get that. You see, I’ve been delegating for about 14 years in my business and in the beginning, I didn’t know what I was doing. I made so many mistakes like hiring the wrong people, micro-managing projects that I had assigned to them, or I re-did work that they performed for me.

I had to learn from my mentors and others that I hired HOW to delegate effectively. Many entrepreneurs are not experts in HR or how to train an independent contractor.

Don’t feel bad if you don’t know how to delegate effectively now. But you need to learn how to if you want to leverage your business. If you are a business owner, you need to have someone to help.

What will happen if you get sick or if medical issues arise?

What will you do when you want to take a vacation?

If you don’t have a team, you will not be able to make money when unforeseen contingencies come up. I have had some clients tell me that they’ve never taken a vacation the entire time they’ve been in business – for several years!

Listen up! Life is too short and as an entrepreneur, you need to have some fun. You need to have some down time (a vacation).

You have to embrace delegating.

Unless you have a brick and mortar store or location and where you need to hire employees, most business owners can use the services of independent contractors called Virtual Assistants.

Click here to learn more about what you need to know once you’ve decided “It’s Time You Started Delegating”

So PLEASE – Stop Waiting To Delegate! You need to know the BIG PICTURE of all of the strategies you need in your business. But you don’t need to know or spend your time learning how to do all of the things you need to do in your business.

I’ve created a Checklist that includes over 40 tasks or activities you could potentially delegate and should consider outsourcing to a Virtual Assistant or to a person other than YOU. Take a look at this Checklist to see what’s possible. Copy it into a Word document, then add tasks or activities that are specific to what you do in your business or delete the things that are not applicable to your business.

I also share in this free report info on what your next steps should be, where to find the people you need, how to get them in place, etc. Just go to JumpstartYourTeam.com to get your copy. It’s FREE!

Talk to You Again Soon

Today my Idea in the Shower was What If People Charged What They Were Worth?

What if your hourly rate, your package price, or your annual program, or whatever you do was priced really high? I hate to see that some of you are NOT charging what you are worth for your services or products.

When people ask me what they should charge for their program, I answer that “you should charge as much as you can without stuttering”.

So let’s talk about pricing today!

I’ve found that many people starting out look at the marketplace, their competitors’ prices, and they charge something similar or many times, lower, because they are new to the business. That’s not the best thing to do!

For example, many times people who have the education and training needed in an industry but who are new entrepreneurs charge less than someone who has been an entrepreneur in that same industry for a longer period of time, but without the same level of training! Just because they’ve been in business longer doesn’t mean they are better. These new entrepreneurs should be charging what they are worth right out of the gate! They can still negotiate custom packages and pricing or beta test pricing with a lower price. When you are starting out, you need to get some clients to try your service or product; you need to get feedback and testimonials – people who like what you offer and have good things to say about you (so you can get more clients, right).

You need to start thinking outside the box about your pricing!

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:  www.AskKat.biz

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

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: www.JumpstartYourBizinaWeekend.com

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

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!
