The Challenge to Being Authentically “YOU” in Business

be-authentic

Are you tired of all the hypy sales and marketing tactics that are out there on the Internet now?  Are you trying to figure out how to stand out in your business and as an expert without doing all those crazy gimmicks and things? I’m talking about being able to be yourself, be authentically you and being loved and appreciated (and well paid!) for it. At one point in my business I got a little away from being “me”. I followed mentors who led me down a path that wasn’t truly authentically me because I thought that’s what I needed to do. After a few years I realized what had happened and I had to turn things back around. Now I may not be making the millions of dollars a year … [Read more...]

Update About Les Brown & Me, Your Authentic YOU Video Tips + Where to Focus For Better Results

katrinasawa-feb814f6-b5e6-4a31-b5a4-0f483561d265-v2

It was so fun being on the same stage (technically) with the great Les Brown this week! Technically I stood on the stage when I spoke but he stood in 'front of' it. LOL His mannerisms and the style in which he speaks is so like what I like to do. He's totally transparent and authentic. In fact, it was hilarious, but he even pulled some waterproof mascara out of this pocket during his talk, and groomed his head and beard with it saying that's how he gets rid of the "grey"! Only he would do that I think but it just proves that you do have to be yourself and that's when people will LOVE you the most. Read more about this on my blog and see more pics too! I got a chance to talk with a … [Read more...]

How to Design Your Marketing Materials to Get Better Results

How to Design Your Marketing Materials to Get Better Results - Katrina Sawa Blog Posting

Have you wondered why you rarely get calls from your postcards, flyers, letters, ads and even follow up from your business cards? Usually it’s because the content of the piece (the marketing piece) wasn’t compelling enough. Most small businesses have no idea how to write, design or structure their print marketing materials. It’s not your fault, you’ve just never been taught. Creating marketing pieces that get results is a learned skill. I come from the advertising world and have done extensive training on how to structure print materials, ads and now even online promotions too (including what you write on your website!). The key to designing print materials that work … [Read more...]
