Hi there, its Katrina here with a quick reminder and your "homework".  What you say? Yes, I said your homework!  Most of you are not speaking enough if you are already speaking and you're certainly not following up well from your speaking gigs or I'd be hearing a lot more from you and that all means you're missing out on THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS EVERY SINGLE MONTH by not doing more speaking (online and offline) or by monetizing and maximizlng each and every opportunity in many different ways. Go watch the NEW VIDEO I added to this page just last  week....regardless of what level of speaker you are or what you've done or what business you're in. You'll get some clarity around how … [Read more...]

Why do some thrive in business and some don’t?

Untitled

As women, we are really good at beating up on ourselves when clients and money are not showing up. It feels hard to NOT take it personally. When you're having those challenging times in your business, have you ever thought to yourself stuff like... "I am doing so much, why aren't I getting clients?" "I am good enough?" "Why are others thriving when it feels so hard for me?" "What am I missing?" It feels hard to be in that place. I know you can feel very alone, but here's the thing. You aren't. In fact, every entrepreneur I've ever met has thoughts like that, including me. You deserve a huge acknowledgement for having the vision and the guts to start a business, and what … [Read more...]

How to Choose the Right Mastermind For You and Why Being in One Totally ROCKS! (Part 2 of 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. THE #1 REASON I started my own mastermind program for my clients is because being in these types of programs for me was the single best thing that catapulted my business so fast in the last few years. I wanted to offer that same type of accelerated learning, access and support to a select group of entrepreneurs like you who want to get where you want to go FASTER as well. It’s a great program to offer if you like to work closely with your clients in a small group but it’s also a way to transform your … [Read more...]

Screen shot 2013-03-21 at 11.31.38 AM

If your website is NOT bringing you lots of quality leads EVERY MONTH, then you may want some advice on how to FIX it so your site does it's job. Your website should be designed, written and positioned to bring in leads and convert them successfully into paying customers consistently every month. Just because you have a website doesn't mean people know it's there - you have to market it. And just because people come to your website, doesn't mean people will buy, contact you or sign up for anything - most of the time, they won't.   The TOP 3 THINGS to Look For On Your Website Are: Does my website speak directly to my ideal target client within 3 seconds of them landing on my … [Read more...]

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...]

Automate Your Business and Marketing for More Sales & Freedom!

Woman resources

People always ask me, "How do you 'Get It All Done' every month?" or "how do you do so much and make it all look so easy?" What I've discovered in my 10 years of being an entrepreneur is that the productivity practices I've adopted or developed are some of the most important systems that help me achieve this and is why I am at the level I am in my business. Using systems and consistent ways to market and follow up is entirely how I built my multiple six-figure business. It wasn't always that easy however; I had to learn the hard way. In my marketing and on my free calls I refer a lot to the templates I use for my email marketing, follow up, direct mail, social media connecting and … [Read more...]

Are You Living the Life You Want and Deserve?

katrinasawa-gttzkjpvjflzjxrdxdhtakycajffjyjd-v2

When I first found out how much money I could truly make as a coach and entrepreneur I was shocked. No one in my family that I knew of ever made over $150,000 or so. It wasn't in my thinking that I'd probably do that in my lifetime but now it's a reality (and then some!). One of my first mentors in the Internet Marketing world taught me about living life to the fullest. But also living it like you had it all today and not waiting for it to come to live a full life, but to live it now. Now, granted, when this all came about the economy was booming and entrepreneurs I met were making tons of money. People were spending money on the Internet like crazy and if you were remotely savvy … [Read more...]

If you're already speaking then great, what I'm sharing in this article could be a good reminder for you. If you are not speaking yet, then why not? Are you afraid of speaking or getting in front of an audience? Are you unsure of what to speak about or to whom or saying to yourself "who would care about what I have to say?" Regardless of what you do in business you may want to consider speaking. Speaking allows you to be the expert in front of your prospects and peers. It gives you instant credibility and trust with the audience. And it speeds up the buying process when someone … [Read more...]
