One week and its gone…

I was driving home tonight from getting my hair done and thought, 'I need to give out a ridiculously crazy offer to help some of the small business owners out there that seem to think they can't afford help and are feverishly trying to figure it all out and do everything themselves.' So, here's what I am doing for the next week....then it's gone. I've recently seen sooooo many horrible websites from clients and some of you who've I've been talking to on strategy sessions but haven't yet taken the plunge and decide to work with me. Your website is your most valuable marketing asset and many of you are ignoring the heck out of yours OR you're designing it yourself and you have no idea … [Read more...]

What would happen to YOUR business RIGHT NOW if something really bad happened and YOU couldn’t do the work?

nudge-people

If you haven't seen my posts on Facebook lately I'm currently in the process of restructuring my team. Not something I really WANTED to do, more like forced to do since my main VA (OBM) just left me to go back and work in an office. I know it was a good move for her so that's good but for me, yes, I'm a little left in disarray for a few weeks until we get someone in place to manage what she was doing (which was managing the entire 10+ person team!). I can't believe how it takes a village to run my business now...so far from the days of my one little assistant in my home office 9 years ago... We'll be fine I know it, my team luckily seems to know what they're supposed to do and it … [Read more...]

Being An Entrepreneur Isn’t Easy

working woman

  It's not easy being an entrepreneur and it certainly isn't easy getting your own business to the 6-figure mark either although so many people think it will be when they start out. Only 5% of entrepreneurs are making over $100,000 a year in their business, how do you expect yourself to be in that group if you aren't actively investing in yourself, your business and learning exactly how to get there. What I've learned over the last 9+ years in my business is that this all takes effort.  Something busy business owners don't always spend time working on. A lot of times we're so busy in our businesses that we don't stop and focus on where we're headed and how we can get there. … [Read more...]

Are You Frustrated or Feeling Stuck in Your Business Trying to Figure Out How to Get More Clients & Make More Money? Not all entrepreneurs know how to market your business though, you know your product or service well but not necessarily how to get new or repeat clients. I built my business the traditional way yet realized a few short years ago I could do much more - I went global! So, now I'm implementing some traditional forms of marketing in my business (such as networking, speaking, publicity, writing articles, live events, good follow up and more) and some more modern, international forms of marketing in my business (such as teleclasses, social networking, blogging, webinars, … [Read more...]

Want a 6-figure business makeover and fast?

Business Meeting Notes

I'm Katrina Sawa, many call me The Jumpstart Your Biz Coach because this is exactly what I LOVE to help seasoned business owners do and what I've learned over the last 9+ years in my business is that this all takes effort. Something busy business owners don't always spend time working on. A lot of times we're so busy in our businesses that we don't stop and focus on where we're headed and how we can get there. Instead we focus on the day-to-day stuff since it's right smack in our faces. But making huge shifts like this, takes looking at everything in your business - the BIG Picture - and figuring out where the holes are, the opportunities are and basically what else is possible for you … [Read more...]

Make This the Year You Get Really Focused in Your Small Business – Because… Focus = Results

sales-marketing

-->> Without a clear focus on what you're selling, how you're marketing and to whom you're marketing how do you expect to really become more successful? This is one of the most difficult things for small business owners that I see which holds them back. There is so much you need to do these days in your business just to even keep it afloat much less make a ton of money. Are you feeling a bit overwhelmed in this new year? If your goal isn't to make a ton of money that's ok but either way, you need to market more and be very focused in what you're offering online and in person or people will find it hard to understand why or how you can help them or why they should buy your stuff. … [Read more...]

Pricing Versus Value – What Do You Do?

pricetag

Have you ever designed a new program, product or service or had an idea for one that you had no idea how to price?  Oftentimes, do you wonder if your ideal prospects will pay you what you're worth? When you think about pricing your programs, products, and services in your business, it can be a tricky decision. However, no matter what you charge, if you don't show to your prospects the value of what they're going to receive, learn or walk away with after buying your program, product or service, then the price doesn't matter. If you can show enough value, you can charge really high prices. You would be surprised what some people would be willing to pay if they see that what you're … [Read more...]

Are You Living BIG or Playing Small?

I wanted to give a quick tip this week about thinking bigger....I've talked with at least 3 entrepreneurs just this week who I gave some ideas to that were way outside their current thinking or scope of what they believed was possible yet all 3 ideas are totally doable. It's amazing to me how much is out there on the internet these days and how some small business owners still have no real idea what is totally possible in their business or how much they could really make if they restructured their business or their programs and pricing just even a little. This is one of the reasons I do my ezines, because I want to inspire you to not only think bigger but to take action to go after … [Read more...]
