One Day Writer’s Workshop in the Bay Area September 20

feather

Hi, I wanted you to know about one of my Live Big Mastermind clients' workshop that she's holding on Sept 20th in Alameda, Ca. She is an author, book coach and publisher for other authors who want to write a book, get their stories out, develop business-building tools and so much more. A book can do all of this. I know because I'm a published author too of my own book, Love Yourself Successful, but I also am a featured author in three compilation books with multiple authors. Compilation books were great ways to get published without having to write a whole book. But sometimes I know, and so does Candace, which is why she's holding this workshop is that we just can't even begin to … [Read more...]

KatRemoteOffice-Hospital

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 … [Read more...]

It Could Be Time to Make a Few Shifts, Business or Otherwise

anxiety-stress-pressure-debt-worry-money-fear

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, … [Read more...]

Katrina Sawa’s Top 20 Networking Tips, Part 1 of 2

Kat at a WINK networking event in San Diego, Nov 2011

If you're a small business owner looking to grow your business fast, then you want to get networking! Networking in person can be your fastest path to quick cash flow if you have special offers and easy YES offers. Sure you can network online too but you most likely won't gain the trust and credibility as fast as you will when you meet your prospects in person, face-to-face. Networking continues to be one of my BEST sources of lead generation even now, 12 years into my business. I highly recommend it to ALL of my clients as well as their #1 marketing strategy. I'm not "too good" to network and go to some chicken dinner either like some coaches who've been in business as long as I … [Read more...]
