I’m tired of all the hype….let’s get to the meat shall we?

katrinasawa-643dcea6-e199-4d7d-a4aa-f488f406b05e-v2

I'm so tired of all the hype out there on the internet about "make millions at this or that or by doing this or that". Every week I talk with a minimum of 5 small business owners who've wasted time or money doing the wrong things because they listened to some free teleclass or someone teaching a supposed moneymaking process. I want to dispel the rumors out there that it's really that simple to make millions...or even $100,000 because it's not. To start, run, market and enjoy a consistently successful 6+ figure business there are two things you want to focus on: Spending your time wisely (and you may have to spend more time up front than "they say") doing the right revenue … [Read more...]

Networking is the least expensive, most effective form of marketing that any small business owner can do.

10 Simple Ways to Follow Up with Prospects

directions signs and sky

In any business it's important to develop simple follow up systems to keep on top of your prospects', customer's and referral sources' minds. If you don't do your follow up; you are wasting valuable marketing dollars and time you've already spent on gathering new leads. I used to do a lot of networking at chamber events, women's organizations and biz expos and I generally collected about 25-50 business cards from new contacts on a good week. I pay an assistant to enter them all into my computer database for me so I can easily mail merge them when I want to send out a mailer. I also enter them into my email database because I usually ask them in person if they want to receive my free … [Read more...]

What’s Up With All the ‘Mastermind Programs’ Out There and WHY Should I Consider Joining One Myself ? (Part 3)

mastermind

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been talking with you about Mastermind programs. Why you should join, what they are, what the are not and which one would be the best fit for you. But ultimately…. What it all comes down to is how do you most like to learn and how are you most productive? You have to know your best learning style so you choose and invest in the programs and products that fit you and how you best learn so you don’t waste your money. I, for example, am NOT a good product learner. I don’t have good luck purchasing a home study kit or other listen to/read type of product and then actually sitting down working my way through it. It will sit on my shelf forever … [Read more...]

What’s Up With All the ‘Mastermind Programs’ Out There and WHY Should I Consider Joining One Myself ? (Part 2)

mastermind

Last week I wrote an article about WHY you should consider joining a Mastermind program. This week I am going to go over what makes a TRUE mastermind and how to know the difference. As most of you know, I’ve been offering my Live Big Mastermind program to you for 3 years now as MY next step in my business. This is my FAVORITE program to run and involves some of my FAVORITE clients who end up moving FAST!

I wanted to offer that same type of accelerated learning, access and support to a select group of entrepreneurs like you … [Read more...]

What’s Up With All the ‘Mastermind Programs’ Out There and WHY Should I Consider Joining One Myself ? (Part 1)

katrinasawa-qblmngjykujmbrbbbkuavhgydfjjemnc-v2

I woke up this morning and couldn't get back to sleep without writing this because I think it's so important...this was confusing to me a few years ago too when I first started joining mastermind programs and high level coaching programs. I know many of you are reading other people's ezines and promotions and following other coaches and mentors as well....as you should; but I'm hearing that you're confused. With all the coaching and mastermind options out there right now, all of the 2012 mid-year groups are now forming...not only mine but a couple of my mentors', other coaches like me and more; you're confused as to which one is right for you? I know they are a big investment, not … [Read more...]
