I really enjoyed talking about how to make Fast Cash by creating Easy YES Offers with Minette Riordan and Brad Dobson, co-founders of The Path to Profit Academy and Podcast for Creative Entrepreneurs.

What a FUN Interview!

I created the concept of an Easy YES Offer a few years ago when I had positioned myself to sell mostly high end programs. In fact, the price of my lowest end program was $200. I attended a workshop where the focus was “making money today”. My intention was to sell my $2,000 program and I offered a flashdrive containing some more of my trainings and programs as a BONUS!   My ‘ah ha’ moment came when people were asking to buy the bonus, instead of the $2,000 program. I sold several of the flashdrives that day for a lower price than the program, but I ended up with Fast Cash.

It’s something I encourage attendees to use at my LIVE events. It’s an offer that’s specifically designed as to make people say YES and buy on the spot! It’s designed to make FAST CASH. It’s not just a lead magnet although you can use a freebie as an alternative with those who don’t accept your Fast Cash Offer. It works best when you make the offer irresistible!

For example, I’ve had people make Fast Cash Offer at my Events that cost $50 and six people bought it – that’s a quick $300. Others have designed offers that cost more.

These offers are for those who need clients! There are several ways to structure these offers!

So what type of Easy YES Offer will you create?

Walt Grassl and I talked about Love and Money on his Stand Up and Speak Up Radio Show.  The topic was about Putting More Love in your Life and More Money in your Business.

Walt’s Radio Show is about facing your fears so you can live your dreams.  All of us have had to do this at some time in our lives or careers.

When I was working in my corporate career in sales and marketing years ago, I quickly discovered that people don’t know what they don’t know. I still find this to be an issue with some of my clients.

A few years after I left the corporate world and started my business, I found out myself in that same boat, especially when it came to online marketing and leveraging.

I knew that I wanted to make more money and online marketing was a way for me to serve more clients. But I was trading hours for dollars and I knew I couldn’t continue to do that because there’s only so many hours in a day.

Once I made the decision to use systems and automate my business processes, I had time to create more programs for my clients and was able to cut the time I was working from 60 hours per week to 10-15 hours working with clients. The rest of my time is spent marketing myself and my business, training, and speaking engagements.

Love and Money – What I Learned

The way that Love impacts the ability to make more Money comes from my personal experience. I learned that a love of self, supportive people in my life to love me and yes, a change in my own mindset was what I needed to nurture my big ideas into reality. Attracting and having Love in my Life helped me make more Money!

In this interview, Walt and I discussed a variety of business topics like speaking in your business.  Many speakers have had to overcome the fear of public speaking and making a mistake while in front of people.  I’ve experienced many of the struggles and challenges that other speakers experience but I’ve learned to overcome them.  And one big mistake that many speakers make is failing to make a connection with their audience in their intro. If you don’t do that, you’ve lost them for the rest of your presentation.

I’ve shared some issues or landmines that speakers can run into when they are hosting their own live events and ways to avoid those costly mistakes, the beauty of making Fast Cash and more.

So, are you ready to put more Love in your Life and more Money in your Business?  I’m hosting my Love & Money LIVE! event in Sacramento on April 5th – 7th.  We have new content and speakers coming to inspire you to transform your Life and your Business.  Take a look at what we cover at https://jumpstartyourmarketing.com/loveandmoneylive   I’m looking forward to meeting you there!

How would you like to continuously attract clients and build a business that makes more money – one that really excites you?

One of my favorite guest speaker interviews was with Adam Hommey, host of Business Creators Radio Show.  Adam’s audience consists of business owners and entrepreneurs who want to hear about tools, techniques and strategies to help them build their businesses.

The top and frequently asked questions from business owners revolve around time and money issues.  Time and Money issues are where many of them get stuck.

Attracting more clients and making more money are issues that all small business owners face no matter what is going on in the economy.  There are several things that can get in the way of many business owners doing just those two things.  They include things like:

  • Bright Shiny Objects that will distract you;
  • Implementing the wrong tasks or actions and implementing them the wrong way;
  • Trying to do everything yourself.

When I’m working with a client, I will discuss with them all of the things they need to do or start doing to transform their business, take it to the next level, etc.  And because we are all so crazy busy, I usually hear objections about having enough time.  For those clients with time issues,  I start them out with “clearing space”.   That means the client is to review everything they are doing and decide if it’s something that’s still important for them to do, what they can delegate it, what they can automate and systemitize, and so on.   It’s really about clearing things off of your plate to see where you can get back a couple of hours every day.

This clearing space process works well.  After working on clearing space for one year, one of my clients’ reclaimed 8 hours per week back in her life because we automated, systemitized and delegated many of the things in her business that she had formerly spent time on.

Most people want to get more time to do more marketing for their business or to get their life back, spend more time on self-care or with their families.

One way business owner can get more time is to learn how to say “No” to some things so they can say “Yes” to other things that are a better fit.

I have my clients create vision boards to stay focused on the BIG Picture; what’s really important to them so they don’t lose their focus and get bogged down in the minutia of day to day tasks.

Another great way to find more time is to learn to calendar your life. Now I realize many people don’t like that kind of structure but I challenge them to calendar everything for one month. This helps you learn how to block your time.

Adam and I discussed many other great tips and if you want to hear more of our conversation to get some tips you too can implement to  Attract More Clients and Make More Money, click here to listen to our discussion on the Business Creators Radio Show.

Here’s to Your Success!!

Getting Over the Guilt

It’s time for you to Get Over the Guilt That Keeps You from Loving Yourself and Doing What You Really Want To Do!

Today I want to talk to you about that pesky 5 letter word that a lot of us let get in our way to getting what we want or doing something about it.

It’s GUILT.

It’s a dangerous little word frankly. Especially when it comes to the guilt that you may have in NOT doing what you say you’re going to do, letting yourself down, not holding yourself accountable to what you know you need to do.

This is the worst kind of guilt because we never really end up letting it go. Not good.

I have clients who feel guilty when:

  • They schedule a call with me and miss it.
  • Set a goal for themselves and don’t hit it or let themselves be distracted so they don’t even do the stuff needed to achieve the goal.
  • Set intentions to do something but never follow through.
  • Keep saying they want “X” and I give them the steps to take or action plan to get that but they never take even one step, or maybe they take one but then stop.

And there’s all kinds of other things that can make us feel guilty, regardless if anyone knows about it too right?

So, you must know that feelings of guilt are not healthy for you right?  Not healthy or productive.

They aren’t motivating, in fact they are deflating!   They take the wind out of your sail. They make you do things like maybe binge eat, freeze up, or go into a depression and retreat from friends or support.

But how can you let these feelings of guilt go? They do need to be let go… you can’t hold on to them or they will make you sick and keep you stuck. You have to find a way to get over them, let them go and realize instead that you are on YOUR PATH in life and your business, no one else’s.

You will have YOUR life hiccups and roadblocks unlike anyone else. You will have good things and bad things happen that will deter you from achieving goals, accomplishing tasks, meeting appointments and staying accountable. If this never happened to you, you wouldn’t be human.

Therefore, why not focus on WHAT YOU CAN DO TODAY.  Not what didn’t happen yesterday or last month or even last year.

Today is a new day, new month and new year. You can make new goals, move deadlines and readjust your plans for moving forward. You have the power to do so, it just takes a decision.

Here’s a 6-step process that you can take to help you get out of that guilt mindset and start appreciating yourself and what you DO accomplish more.

  1. Take a Little Time For Self-Reflection And Finding The Guilt That’s Holding You Back
  2. Dig Deep And Find The Reason For The Guilt
  3. Forgive Yourself And Start Loving The Real You
  4. Take A Few Baby Steps Toward Your Big Goals
  5. Watch Out – Those Guilty Feelings Will Try To Sneak Back Into Your Life
  6. Confidence Is Your Secret Weapon To Building The Live Of Your Dreams – get a good support system around you such as family, loved ones but also a supportive coach can help, a group of peers and clients. When you have positive role models and “cheerleaders” in your corner you can really start believing more in yourself and you’ll be more motivated to do what you need to do regardless of “life”.

If you want more information about how I can help you Jumpstart Your Business this year, then you can do one of 3 things now…

1. Come to a call with me. I can help you prioritize and organize your plans, get focus and clarity, help you plot out your Big Picture for this year, and so much more. Don’t wait because my calendar is filling up fast. I want to help you make a Big impact, make Big changes, and make Big money this year. Go to AskKat.biz to schedule your call with me right now.

2. Attend one or more of my Live Trainings in Sacramento this year. My first live event of the year is in April and I’ll be announcing registration for it soon so watch for it but you can go check out all the events and dates and mark your calendar here now.

3. Finally, you could attend my next 2 Hour Masterclass Friday, January 26th from 9-11 am PST! This is a laser coaching and masterminding block of time that I spend on all those who attend that day. Want a jumpstart in your business quick? This is what you want to attend, plus it’s only $79! Find out more and register here now.

NOW IS THE TIME to focus on your systems, upgrade your backend, technology and start embracing easier ways to run your business, market, follow up, capture leads, make sales, take payments, manage your business and more.

But you have to STOP and ask for help from someone who can see your BIG PICTURE and all the nitty gritty things you need to do PLUS WHICH ORDER OF IMPORTANCE to do them in. You may not be able to see what’s possible or generate the solutions by yourself.

Don’t wait… life is too short and you need to put YOU First Now!

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

Bright Shiny Object Syndrome is anything that keeps you from focusing on your immediate goals and the tasks that need to be completed to reach your goals.

Today I want to talk to you about Bright Shiny Object Syndrome. It’s a serious problem that many people deal with, even me sometimes.

Let me give you a real-world example of what I’m talking about. Are you a Starter but not a Finisher? Do you get GREAT IDEAS and start projects only to lose your momentum for what you started because you are excited about the next new project? Do you jump from idea to idea without finishing your projects? Once the project is finished, do you leave it without monetizing it? If you’ve answered yes, you are someone who is afflicted with Bright Shiny Object Syndrome.

Many people get distracted and invest their time and money in the newest training they’ve heard about. There’s nothing wrong with investing in yourself and learning new skills. The problem occurs when you are investing in something that will not help you where your business is now. Many people lose their focus, invest in training, and then lose interest in that because it’s doing nothing to generate income at the time they invested in it.

Sure, things come up and roadblocks can get in the way of your progress in reaching your goals. But don’t let that lead to procrastination in working on the things you really need to get done! SQUIRREL!

Let’s face it, as an entrepreneur we have all kinds of ideas all the time. It’s a curse and a blessing. But often times those ideas distract us from what we need to stay focused on each and every day in order to keep the cash flowing into our business.

It’s pretty common also for entrepreneurs to have some level of ADD or ADHD. Although I’ve never been diagnosed, I’m sure I’ve got some level of one of those!

Therefore, we have to constantly find ways to stay focused, keep on track with our plan for growth in our business and revenue generation while keeping an eye on the big picture plan and vision and where else we can take our business. It’s a lot to manage every day right?

I know for a lot of my coaching clients this is a topic we have to cover often so I wanted to share 7 ways I help clients (and myself too) become more productive that hopefully can help you as well.

7 Ways to become more productive in your life and your business:

  1. Work off a good calendar system that can help you track your time, plot time slots out for different activities and one that you can use anywhere you are to save time.
  2. Track your time for one week solid on everything you do, personally and professionally, and see where you’re wasting time, could get rid of things you’re doing, delegate or automate some things you’re doing, etc.
  3. Set goals for yourself each day, week and month on what you plan to accomplish (see below).
  4. Have your big vision in mind each day so do whatever you have to do daily to make sure that stays on top of mind with you so that you stay focused and get distracted less.
  5. Find an accountability buddy (or coach) or someone who supports what you’re doing in your business fully to stay in touch with however often you need them too – daily, weekly or monthly perhaps but that may be too long.
  6. Unsubscribe from emails and lists that are slowing you down and not contributing to either your enhanced learning, implementing, taking action or accountability. Or have them redirect into a folder you won’t see every day and you can look at when you have time. But don’t let daily emails distract you from the tasks at hand.
  7. Have a marketing and business plan that you’re working from so you know WHERE and HOW to spend your time each day, week, or month. If you don’t have a plan or know EXACTLY what to do, reach out and get a coach who can help you with this FIRST!

Copy these to a Word document now and set up YOUR TIME MANAGEMENT SYSTEM and COMMITMENTS. 

  1. Each week I will spend ________ hours working ON my business which will include marketing activities, marketing and business planning, implementation, sales calls and lead generation. This will NOT include bookkeeping, data entry, graphic or web design or anything else that could be done by someone else for less than my time costs and/or who would be better at the task anyway. I have plotted the time on my calendar to make sure this happens.
  2. I will prioritize my tasks so that the MOST IMPORTANT ones get done first and I will only put on my To Do List those things that I can successfully accomplish during the time allotted.  ______ (initial here)
  3. Each month I will spend ________ hours learning new things (pertinent to my immediate growth) to expand my knowledge base and my business and I have plotted the time on my calendar to make sure this happens.
  4. Each month I will spend ________ hours just for ME and I have plotted the time on my calendar to make sure this happens.
  5. Each month I will spend ________ hours for my family and friends and I have plotted the time on my calendar to make sure this happens.

This is a topic that will be helpful for you actually regardless of whether you travel for business or pleasure.  Now I don’t work in the travel industry and never have but I’ve learned first hand on what makes your life a lot more efficient and manageable when traveling due to my increased travel lifestyle.

calendarYou see, every year now I travel typically about 10 times.  That may seem like a lot for some but for others it could be what you do in the first quarter.  Usually I’m traveling inside the U.S. but for the purposes of this article it doesn’t really matter where you go; it can be driving out of town for a three day getaway or spending a week or more at a business trip or on vacation.  There are a few things that I’ve made sure to make it a practice to do now when I travel to make things run smoother, allow me to have a more stress-free time and so that I don’t forget anything or come back to my office in chaos.

As a small business owner you’re probably doing a ton of things yourself in your business – some you need to do but some also that maybe you shouldn’t be doing, right?

computerIn talking with hundreds of entrepreneurs every month I find that the majority of them (you/us) struggle with our email inboxes…they’re overflowing right?

You’re either:

  • Overwhelmed with email and your inbox
  • Feeling like you’re tied to it or it follows you around (on your smart phone)
  • Confused on how to organize it better – the flow, the emails you need, the spam, etc.
  • Ignoring it all together
  • Wondering how you can ever take a vacation (or a couple days off) and NOT check in
  • Or you’ve got it down and thoroughly organized like a well-oiled machine

Well, if you’re NOT in the situation of the very last point then you may be interested to know a few things you can do to better manage your emails and inbox.  After all, you’re wasting hours a month deleting and sorting through emails you don’t even need to show up in the first place.

The following are 4 tips I suggest to better manage your emails:

  1. Sort and organize your emails – Use the rules option in your mailbox feature to send specific emails into their own folders in your inbox to start.
    • I send all the emails from my team (various VAs) to one folder so I can hammer out responses all at one time every hour or couple hours or so as it fits my time schedule.
    • I send all my email newsletters (the ones I do want to keep) to a newsletter folder in my inbox to read when I have time.  Guess what?  Rarely do I ever have time nor do I miss them!
    • I send all emails from particular people like my own coach, my mastermind or other group I may be a part of to their own respective folders to keep them organized and my main inbox less cluttered.
