Jumpstart Your Marketing 30 Day Program

Now more than ever you may want to look at learning how to get better at “MARKETING” and how to do a LOT MORE of it to reach a lot more potential prospects.

Whatever your business or industry is I can guarantee you that you are NOT doing enough marketing. I know this because no one I ever talk to is, heck, I’m not even doing all I could do and I teach it!

Marketing is a culmination of the activities you need to do to to get in front of a lot more people. But most entrepreneurs need to do MORE and in many ways, having a “variety” of marketing activities going on every month.

It’s time to stop the doom and gloom attitude if you are experiencing that and learn what you need to do to MAKE MORE SALES during this time. That could mean that you need to DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY or hang out with other people who are more POSITIVE & ENCOURAGING. Either way, there are plenty of people out there buying right now (Yes, even YOUR products, programs and services too!). If you’re not experiencing this then you definitely need to re-evaluate what you’re doing in your marketing. You may also need to do very different things right now, times have changed and what you did just 2-4 months ago may not be working.

Let’s face it, some of us don’t try something new until we’re forced. Well… the time has come and I’m going to make this SUPER SIMPLE and convenient for you to learn more about doing effective marketing, lead generation, follow up and sales (online and offline).

I’m the Queen of teaching the HOW-TO!

My clients tell me that they love my calls and trainings because I literally teach them step-by-step what they need to do, say, send, click and post to become more successful in their business – online or offline – no matter what I’m teaching.

Upcoming Virtual Events & Trainings to Jumpstart Your Biz

There are SO many ways to make money during this isolation period so if you can’t figure out WHAT to do or HOW to do it, you really want to reach out to me and schedule a call as I can give you dozens of ideas so you can continue supporting your family. OR just sign up for one of the trainings or groups below so you can get resources and advice QUICK! 

One way that I’m LOVING right now is hosting compilation books – what if YOU gathered 5-15 of your friends and followers and they paid YOU $1,000 – $1,500 each to write a chapter in YOUR own branded compilation book!?!?!?! It’s an easy business model to add right now if you have a reasonable following or group of clients, no matter what the topic or focus.  

Another way is to host a short, low-priced online group training – it could be 90 minutes for $25 like the two I have below or a 3 week course training people on something for $197. Both of these are what I call, Easy Yes Offers, and will sell easier right now that a much longer, higher priced program. HOWEVER, I do always recommend you give people options if you’re speaking with them personally… start high and go low.

You can do this!! I can help you!! Just email or reach out and ask!

Here are a few ways to get support right now to doing things differently and jumpstart your business, revenues and sales. 

I decided to run a few short and inexpensive 3-Week Trainings and one-day trainings or even just 60-90 min classes around learning new skills during this time…. ALL OF THESE YOU CAN ACCESS EVEN IF THEY HAVE ALREADY STARTED OR HAVE ALREADY BEEN RECORDED. ALL OF THEM ARE STILL GOOD AS DO-IT-YOURSELF TRAININGS SO DON’T STOP JUST BECAUSE YOU SEE IT IS ALREADY OVER. 

1. Jumpstart Yourself as an Author Program – learn how to write and publish your own book, host a compilation book yourself or get published in any way – 5-week course (previously recorded but you can still go through it all on your own). This course is all about how to become an author and publishing a book yourself or where to get options and how it all works. You’ll learn what you need to know before, during and after you finish writing the book, how to find affordable editors, cover designers, and how to plan for an Amazon best-seller launch, what if you want to get a publisher, what to do about publicity, book signings, marketing and selling your book and more! – Click here for info.

2. Jumpstart Your Online Course Program – This course will help you change up your business and develop, market, sell and run an online course, membership program, online virtual workshop, mastermind or any type of online/virtual training or calls you can SELL to continue working and making money doing what you love during this quarantine (and beyond). Check out the video and webpage about this asap then, come and get something in place THIS WEEK that you can sell and promote right now. – Click here for info.

3. “Jumpstart Your Sales” Course, How to Enroll More Clients Through Authentic, Service-Oriented, One-on-One Sales Conversations – This 3-week course runs from April 9-23 live – teaching critical skills you want to continue to hone! – Click here for info and to register.

Key takeaways – learn how to:

  • Book more appointments and 1on1 sales conversations via email, zoom, social media and from anywhere
  • Conduct NON sales conversations for “Collaborations & Connecting” (I call them “Get-to-Know-Ya” calls) yet still turn many of those around into the person wanting to know about how to work with you or buy from you OR develop ways to refer business to one another
  • Take prospects through that 1on1 sales conversation much more easily, more authentically yet with more assertiveness and strategy so you can actually get more people to say YES to you
  • Develop the right offerings with the right pricing, from Easy Yes Offers to High-End Programs and everything necessary in between so that you close a much higher percentage of prospects into something no matter what
  • Navigate dancing with their concerns, objections, questions and challenges about enrolling or buying – we can give you a response to ANY scenario that comes up

4. Int’l Entrepreneur Network – this is a group of highly motivated new and seasoned business owners and entrepreneurs who get together 3+ times a month via Zoom calls for networking, masterminding, collaborating and getting and sharing resources, offerings, feedback on anything and everything that has to do with starting, growing, marketing and running your business (any type of business!). It’s only $7/mo and anyone can join and/or you can cancel anytime too! – Click here to find out more and join the group here!

5. Create Images & More on Canva 90-min Tutorial! – Canva.com is such a great resource for us at this time, whether you’re graphically creative or inclined or not, it has hundreds of templates anyone can use and most are all free. Many of my clients though still needed a short tutorial or training on how to utilize this tool quickly and easily to create their images, flyers, postcards, and presentations. This tutorial has been recorded via zoom with screen-sharing what to do, using real client examples too and is just $25.  You will get instant access to it when you sign up here.

6. Facebook Groups 90-min tutorial on how to start, run and manage your own groups. – Developing groups and communities to grow your business is critical right now so come learn how to get started doing this, what to do, post, how to engage and get members, plus some other FB tips and tricks (like how to stay out of FB jail!)

Discover Something New to Sell

There are SO many ways to make money during this shutdown and isolation period. First of all, I can’t see it lasting much longer or the country will be in financial ruin…so stay in faith that this will all work itself out soon. However, if you can’t do “business as usual” or people aren’t buying the stuff you were selling the way you were selling it… it is time to tweak what you were doing or how you were doing it AND it could also be time to think up something else you can sell. (even if it has nothing to do with your core business)

I was on a call yesterday with a client who has an organizing company but she focuses on people when they move, so she’s a ‘move consultant’ in LA. She can’t do her business right now, working in people’s homes plus less people are “moving” during this pandemic. So one exercise that I did with her is something you can do also to help you “BRAINSTORM” new and different ideas on what you can sell perhaps now, as an additional income stream (could be temporary or long term, either way). I asked her (and this was a very hard question for her to answer frankly but I helped nudge the ideas out of her):

  • “What are you good at doing?”
  • “What questions do you get often that you like to answer and that help people?”
  • “What were you good at in the past, in past jobs or experiences (business or personal oriented)?”

I had to keep diving deep when she gave me “surface answers” to really get to the heart of what the true problem/issue was that she was so good at solving… you can do this with yourself too!

She answered things like: budgeting, managing people, getting kids to trust her and tell her anything, getting stuff done, helping people relieve stress, things not to do when dating, giving honest feedback, getting others to trust you and listen to you, positive reinforcement, setting deadlines, photography.

Do you see the possibilities with my client on what else she could potentially sell right now to pull her through?

I saw at least 3 and I shared them with her, what she could charge, etc. 

Do this if you need to figure something out quick to start generating some revenue. Then of course you have to market it and tell people about it. You have to go sell it.

It makes complete sense that someone would create a new business model in times like this so stop worrying what others will say about you “switching” your business, you’re not. You’re just getting creative, innovative and resourceful.

You can do this!! I can help you!!

Let me help you figure out how to tweak, and change up your business to thrive during ANY economy, good or bad time including this one no matter what your business is.

Here are 3 options – PICK ONE!

  1. If you are new to me or want to truly “TRY ME OUT”… Join the International Entrepreneur Network for just $7/month and get help on our monthly zoom mastermind calls that happen three times each month and various times and days or get inside the private Facebook group. This is a community for masterminding, collaboration, resources, support and more. Become a Member today or find out more at www.iEntrepreneurNetwork.com!
  2. If you love learning live, then make sure you’re on my email list so you can get announcements about when I do live or virtual trainings, click here!
  3. If you’ve been following me for a while and/or are ready for a bigger step, come to a 1on1 call with me and let’s talk about coaching options! Schedule at www.AskKat.biz today.

Zoom best practices, tips, etiquette & other meetings you can attend!

I’ve been madly creating resources and lists of other opportunities for you all to attend for virtual networking on Zoom and other ways… since that’s basically the only way to network these days. 

It’s important to keep networking, get on calls with other entrepreneurs who are staying POSITIVE during these times because if you stay home, isolated and stay “in your own head” about what’s going on and you give into the fears and crisis that the news wants us to you will for sure freak out sooner than later and we don’t want that.

SO… instead, make time to connect, network, brainstorm and mastermind with other highly motivated entrepreneurs who are dealing with these changes just like you but who are making the best of it.

I’ve been on anywhere from 3-6 Zoom calls every day for the last week alone on top of my regular coaching client calls and SPIRITS ARE UP!

But you have to stay in the conversation. 

So I created 3 *important* and helpful lists for you to use RIGHT NOW. 

  1. A list of many Zoom meetings and organizations that are running zoom networking events right now, many free, some paid.
  2. A list of the key Zoom Networking Etiquette and best practices that you want to use and know about like how to work a zoom chat room.
  3. A list of what other platforms other than Zoom are there in case with the high demand Zoom becomes less available.

Enjoy and use these and then follow my email for more updates on these as many of them are ever-changing and/or follow me on Facebook or get into one of my groups on Facebook too.

MEANWHILE… last chance to jump into the Online Course, Membership & More Training happening tonight and for 3 weeks.

If you’ve been thinking about starting or running a group program, online course, virtual workshop, membership, or just talk with clients virtually – you don’t want to wait.

Now is the time to learn how to do this and actually START a new program or offering. I get that many of you know how to use Zoom and the phone or conference lines, but it’s more than just knowing HOW to use these services.

You need to be clear and strategic with what you’re saying, sending, offering, and selling during this time so it actually works for you.

You can do this quickly and I want to help you… that’s why I put a quick, 3-week program on my calendar starting TONIGHT. 

I’m VERY CONFIDENT that I can help you brainstorm and figure out one or two ideas minimum of what you can do PLUS show you what to do and how to do it to start making money from it… all within just 3 weeks. 

Yes, you have to trust me, but I’m offering a money-back guarantee that if you don’t get a feasible idea on what you can do, I’ll gladly pay you back the very low $197 investment that I’m asking for this program.

Find out more about this online training live with me on Zoom from March 19-April 2.

Using Printed Order Forms?

I was an exhibitor a big marketing conference in LA last week,  setting out my printed order forms on my table, and I thought this could be a good topic to share with you today. Printed order forms in this high-tech marketing world is a very OVERLOOKED piece of marketing collateral that many entrepreneurs don’t have or use.

 

One of the biggest issues with entrepreneurs when it comes to them/you NOT making money on an everyday basis is the lack of a printed order form and OFFLINE SALES PROCESS.

This is such a critical part of our world today, some of you may not have any idea…

THOUSANDS of dollars of my sales every year are made in person and on a printed order form. Let me share why you want one and what it’s going to do for you in your business.

The quick answer to WHY you want a printed order form is: “To make Easy Yes Offers on a daily basis with people you meet.”Click To Tweet

Here are four reasons or instances where having a printed order form when you’re out and about locally or away on trips, is critical to either more sales, your sanity and time or both.

1) Instead of printed order forms, can’t I just use a Square or PayPal swipey thing that plugs into my phone to take money from someone if they want to buy something from me in person? Or can’t I just take cash or check?

Well, the answer to this is simple. If you take money these ways, you still have to capture/get and manually enter in the customer’s full contact information into your main database or email marketing software for ongoing marketing and follow up later – MANUALLY… that means it’s less likely to happen if you don’t have an automated system. AND… that is IF you get their full contact information in the first place!

So many people do not, they just swipe and take the money and move on or take the cash or check and let the person go. HUGE MISTAKE!! Those customers might be great ongoing customers too but if you don’t continue to market to them or follow up with them you’ll never find out, nor will you get any referrals because you won’t be “top of mind” with them. You must get their full contact information regardless is the main point here or you’ll miss out on future sales. When they sign the order form too, you can put disclaimers on there, refund policies and have other things they can check to “add on” and potentially increase your sale. The idea of the PROCESS however is that when you take their information, they give you their credit card on a form, then you can be in charge of entering that into your shopping cart yourself , even taking payments and then having the cart initiate follow up emails and messages automatically that you pre-write.

2) Can’t I just send people to my website to buy or sign up for stuff? Passing out my card, flyer or brochure?

 

Goodness NO! RARELY does anyone follow through with that! YOU have to be in charge of the sale, not them. Plus, don’t you want the money TODAY? It could be a week or much longer even before they go click and buy, therefore prolonging the sale. People are way too busy for this. YOU have to be in charge and make it easier for them to buy when they’re HOT and the way to do that is with a printed order form. Plus… when you do run into a potential customer in person and they are really ready to buy, even just after a 10+ minute conversation anything is possible…You can give them a “SPECIAL OFFER” to buy today or when they buy XYZ today, they can also get a bonus of something. Therefore you make your money TODAY!! Having what I call an “Easy Yes Offer” is a great way to make sales every single day. I teach entrepreneurs how to create their Easy Yes Offers and their order forms at my live events plus I give you templates too. It takes a little bit longer to explain what I mean by an Easy Yes Offer – I make people sell theirs at my live events too actually…come experience it for yourself in November in LA!

3) Can’t I just schedule a call with them to talk about working with me or what I have to offer?

 

YES!! We do want to do that all day, of course… however, typically a phone call is when someone really needs to have that conversation with you, maybe share more about where they are now and what they’re looking for help with, that way you both can determine if you’re a good fit to work together or not. That’s a sales conversation and we want to book a LOT of those. A printed order form however is meant for the quicker, lower priced sales that can get people to experience you right now and then you can always follow up with a phone call from there to sell them into higher end programs and packages. Maybe you have a book, a webinar or an event to sell today though, those are quicker decisions people can make on the spot without a lot of thought or discussion and why not get them to buy today if you can? Why not make money daily if you’re able?

4) Can’t I just pull out my phone or iPad and have them sign up online on my website in person?

 

Sure… however that’s very time consuming for THEM. You have to make it EASIER for them, not harder. Some of your customers may not be that technical either, so doing this on their phone or your device could provide challenges. In addition, if you’re in a room with a lot of people it really limits the number of people who can do this efficiently during that event. Oh and if the internet is not working or isn’t available then you’re really stuck right? I would never do this at my exhibitor booth either it just bogs up the flow of traffic and just isn’t a good use of time for anyone.

Finally, if you are a speaker, it’s just way more efficient to pass out printed order forms when you’re attempting to make sales during your talk or in the back of the room after your talk. You can collect them and go and enter them all in later ensuring the “follow up process” will run and continue automatically so you have less manual entry later.

If you know you need an order form, I’m sure you’ve seen dozens of examples out there and I have some very easy templates to model after.

Weekly Marketing Checklist

Want to know the things I do regularly to grow and expand my business? Entrepreneurship isn’t for the faint of heart. If your goal is to reach the masses with your message and/or make a minimum of $3000/mo, I would say, in this day and age, you’ll want to be doing MOST of these things regularly as well!

Get in front of more people, more often and in more ways is the #1 goal…ways you can do that include the following:

  • in person networking
  • in person speaking
  • in person vendor/exhibiting
  • host a FB live/YouTube Live yourself
  • host a FB live w/ a guest
  • be a guest on podcasts, radio shows all over
  • Call into group zoom networking events and network in chat, especially those events that allow commercials with who is on live
  • ask others who do FB lives to bring you on as guest
  • offer to collaborate with peers on joint FB lives
  • nurture and interact with your community, your groups, and clients, etc. often so they will spread the word about you
  • host live events
  • participate and network, share tips and advice inside FB or LI groups – then take conversations off to a private message and then a phone call
  • go after publicity in your local marketplace, get on local TV, radio and in print media. It’s not as hard as you think
  • get published with your articles, blog posts and video tips on other people’s blogs, websites and directories. There are often submission guidelines on their sites or just reach out and ask!
  • pay attention to online summits and giveaways and be a part whenever possible in those types of events
  • travel to larger conferences and targeted events throughout the country and possibly be a vendor there if you aren’t chosen to speak
  • get listed in online directories and maximize your profiles everywhere such as social media, your professional membership websites and wherever your target market looks – sometimes there is an opportunity to be a partner of a website such as a catering association needs website designers, but normally web designers don’t join catering assoc. they can sometimes be a partner member which means you have access to that entire membership directory

Other ways to engage your Database/Community:

  • send an update letter in the mail
  • send an update email
  • call through your database a couple times a year
  • send twice monthly newsletters or emails of some sort (min 2x/mo or more)
  • share more stories with them to get them to connect with you more
  • friend or connect with each customer or person in your email database over on social media as well – sending a private message to them over there
  • sending more private messages and/or segmented messages to specific groups within your database so it speaks more directly to them and their needs. (example, someone who signs up for your Grief ebook, may be different than someone who signs up for Purpose workshop)
  • actively ask for referrals
  • ask them to take surveys, give their input
  • offer free coaching calls every once in a while
  • send holiday cards anytime of the year – more direct mail regardless
  • send a print newsletter in the mail
  • send a private video message just to them, one by one, there’s a system for that
  • start a text message campaign, get them to give approval to add them to it and then start sending texts to certain clients and people who want info that way
  • host free group calls on conf line or zoom to give them support and do Q&A
  • host free webinars and calls bringing in other experts to share
What will you add to YOUR marketing plan this year?

What Does a Vending Machine Have to Do with Your Marketing Message?

 

Are you able to change up your message like you can click a button on a vending machine and get a different snack?

 
I used this analogy today with a client. She felt confused and unclear about her message, what she was saying to people she met out at networking events and the overall message too about what she speaks about (she’s a speaker).
 
I personally, change up my message all the time, depending on who I’m speaking to, whether it’s one person or a group, whether it’s a 30 second commercial or a speaking gig.
 
The message I may have speaking to a group of mom entrepreneurs will definitely be different than the message I would have with a group of authors or writers as would it also be different with a group of professionals that have a JOB who are looking to start their own business.
 
All three different groups of people (or individuals with the same scenario frankly) will have different interests, problems, questions and solutions that they are looking for and it might actually be more like a dozen or more different types of groups or people/industries of business owners that I speak to on any given month. I don’t niche the “type” of client that I work with, I niche the “scenario” they are in with their business.
 
I’ll bet you run into the same thing, right? Not that you don’t want to niche what you do but you can serve more than one type of customer I’m sure.
 
Think about your messages then being like snacks that you’d get from a vending machine. When in front of one group, you press the button for Doritos and the Doritos fall out, when in front of a different group, you want the Oreos so you click for Oreos.
 
If you aren’t there yet, with the ability to be able to alter or tweak your “message” on a dime/whim then you will be. It’s something to start keeping on top of mind to practice because it’s helpful to be able to pull out one “script” so to speak for one situation and a different script for another situation.
 
It’s important to be able to switch your message to speak directly to the hot buttons of that specific person or group.
 
As someone who’s been in business for almost 17 years now, I’m really good at knowing EXACTLY what to say and when to say it to whom. I punch those darn vending machines buttons all day every day spitting out different “scripts” or messages/information to different people all the time and I’m pretty comfortable doing it. It wasn’t always this easy though. It took a lot of time and practice and tweaking my message frankly.
 
It also took patience and understanding of MYSELF that it was ok to do this. Sometimes people pressure you into having just ONE message and I say no. The more you can “segment” your messages to certain groups, the more response and engagement you’ll have.
 
Be open to the evolution of you, your business, your message, your offerings, your target audience, your vision, your goals and just be open. You’re on a journey and it will never be perfect and you will never be done. Just accept that and keep moving! You’ve got this!!

Together we can accomplish it all, alone you will see challenges and perhaps not know how to overcome them. It’s time to step into your bigger, badder self and take charge of your business, your life, your income and your legacy. Let’s do this together, shall we?

This was me about 9 years ago…

I was all “DOING”. That’s all I focused on in my life, my business, etc., it was whatever I could DO to get to the next level, be happy, to get clients, get myself out there more…. DOING, DOING, DOING….  what could I DO to get to the 6-figure mark in my business was my biggest goal in 2008 and it had been for a couple years but I was stuck, I couldn’t get beyond the plateau I was at financially. It was driving me crazy and it was very frustrating too because I was literally DOING everything everyone told me to do to market myself, follow up; more than probably many of you are doing now even.

It wasn’t until I hired this one business, money, mindset coach… I had hired him because he was emphatically confident that he could help me make more money, he could help me reach to and exceed the 6-figure mark. Ok, so I invested $25,000 that year with him and his mastermind and I went to every call, live event, and meeting; I was “all in”.

Funny thing though is that what we worked on all that year was not the marketing, sales or business tactics that I thought we would. Instead, it was the mindset, limiting beliefs, confidence, blocks, fears and frustrations that came up that all of us had to tackle, including me.

I went to my meetings hopeful and was left distraught, angry, defeated.  I didn’t understand what my coach and everyone in the group was trying to tell me back then. When I asked “what do I need to DO to get more clients and build my business to 6-figures”? They would simply answer, “Just BE Katrina”, “Just BE LOVE”.

“WHAT?????” I would remark back with utter frustration and disbelief, crying at the thought that I still had no idea HOW I would get there, what I needed to DO.

Being a good student, I did “try” to go to events and “just BE”. I tried to wrap my “doing brain” around what that meant and what I needed to DO to just BE (LOL). Somehow, some way, I started making strides towards this and I almost didn’t recognize it when things shifted for me. It basically happened on a subconscious level, I would go to conferences and other meetings or events that year or even get on calls with prospects and I would prepare myself right before with the words such as: “Ok Katrina, just BE who these people need you to be, be open, be willing to speak to them, be willing to share, be love energy” and then I would walk in. I wouldn’t use my normal “marketing talk or commercial”, I would ask more questions and just listen. WHOA! What a difference it started to make!

When I did this, the perfect prospects started coming up to me and sitting next to me at lunch. They would remark how easy it was to talk with me and how I made them feel safe and heard. I even had some sign up for my high-end programs at other people’s live events – to the tune of $40,000 for one client! I was shocked this was working and frankly looking back on it now, I didn’t know at the time that it was working. It wasn’t until the year ended and I went to go pull my sales revenue for the year and I had hit $110,000!!

Not only that but I had found a new love interest too after being divorced and single again for 3 years. I had found LOVE & MONEY at the end of that torturous year I call it. This was the key to my success!

Now, keeping this up over the years was a practice of course as you can imagine. It can be easy to revert back to the DOING from the BEING, especially if you’re in fight or flight mode with too many bills, or difficult situations. It was a constant struggle and still to this day I often have to give myself that “PEP TALK” before walking into an event or a phone call. But it is easier and I’ve been able to maintain and grow my revenues every year since then.

This year is where the concepts of my book, Love Yourself Successful, and my events with the Love & Money  theme came from. THIS stuff is the key to many of my clients’ success stories because I saw in them, what I was doing and now knew how to help them make the shift or get more balance between the DOING and the BEING.

I love helping entrepreneurs through all of this and so much more.

**** Building a consistent, smooth-running, moneymaking business takes practice, balance of being vs. doing, confidence and practical strategies plain and simple. ****

There is no magic pill or ONE thing that you can do to jump from $30K per year to a $Million, I don’t care who tells you there is, there isn’t. It takes determination, work (not necessarily hard work by the way, just work), practice, flexibility, willingness to learn, ability to ask for help, confidence, belief in yourself and accountability to yourself and others.

This is why I do what I do. This is why I hold amazing, transformational and informative live events, online trainings, coaching and why I share so much on social media, record video tips, write articles in my newsletter and on my blog…. It’s to educate, motivate and inspire more people who need this message, more people who want to make a bigger impact but aren’t sure how to do that, more people who want to make a great living doing what they love but aren’t sure how. I teach massive amounts of the DOING along with a side of BEING.

Together we can accomplish it all, alone you will see challenges and perhaps not know how to overcome them. It’s time to step into your bigger, badder self and take charge of your business, your life, your income and your legacy. Let’s do this together, shall we?

Have you always wanted to become an author?  I know, for me, it was NEVER on my radar until I was like 36 or 37 years old. I had no desire nor did I see what amazing things it could do for me.

Being an author has changed my goals, upleveled my confidence in myself, my self worth and it’s given me enormous amounts of credibility and opportunities that I may not have had otherwise.

It’s for these reasons I highly suggest other entrepreneurs, and even my girlfriends frankly who don’t have a business, become an author.

Imagine having a job and being the only one in your office who has written and published a book?

Imagine when your kids get older and they find out or see your books around the house, how it will inspire them to reach for more of what they want?

It’s just an all around good thing to do… and the best part is that it’s easier than ever to publish a book and become an author!

I’ve got a ton of resources on how to do this, what to write about and where to get the help to make sure it happens. Want ideas? Resources?

I even have an opportunity for you to be featured in my next Jumpstart Your _________ Compilation book! That’s where we have 20 authors who share their stories, each with one chapter yet everyone promotes and markets the book.

This way you have help marketing your book and it’s easier because you only have to write one chapter to become a published author!
Find out more about the Jumpstart Your _____ Book here: https://jumpstartyourmarketing.com/jumpstartcompilation/

Watch today’s Video Tip of the Week to learn more!

If you want to write your own book, the whole thing, but aren’t sure what kind of book to write or how to really get started, publish, market it and how it will tie into your business either? Well, I have a 30 day program that can teach you all of that and so much more.
