Embrace Networking to Grow Your Business Now

networking

Networking is probably the single most critical thing that I’ve ever learned to do well that has impacted my business the most with more clients, more opportunities, more exposure and more fun. The more people you know, the more referrals and repeat business you will get. The number of people you have in your database is the number of people you have access to market to on a regular basis so your #1 goal in your business should be to build your database and set up a consistent, frequent system for marketing and following up with them. If this isn't your #1 goal, you're missing out on a ton of sales. If you're not networking (online and in person in some way), you're missing out on a ton … [Read more...]

The EBC is short for Evolutionary Business Council and let me tell you….it’s an intimate group of high level, big thinking, global change agents. And I’m a member! I absolutely love this organization and I’m so grateful that I found it. The members and people it attracts are doing such great things for the world and making a huge impact. I literally feel connected to each and every person that I’ve met so far through this organization, whether it be a casual connection on social media or in person. I just recently returned from the annual retreat and corresponding live event, the Global Influence Summit. I’ve not been to an event where every single person in the room, new or seasoned, … [Read more...]

Video Biz Tip – How to Share What You Do!

how to share what you Do

Do you get tripped up when trying to share what you do? Many entrepreneurs get confused about how to best answer that question. First of all, you should make sure you are using the words; the language that makes a difference with your referrals sources and prospective clients.  It’s more than just giving someone your title such as "I’m a business coach".   I introduced myself in this video as “the JumpStart Your Biz Coach”.  That’s pretty descriptive, right?  People understand that I help entrepreneurs JumpStart their businesses.  I will follow that up with “I help entrepreneurs make more money in their businesses doing what they love so they don’t have to work so hard!”   That’s takes … [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...]

What To Do When You’re Down to Your Last Few Hundred Bucks

Katrina-Sawa-What-To-Do-When-You’re-Down-to-Your-Last-Few-Hundred-Bucks

I’m writing this article on What To Do When You’re Down to Your Last Few Hundred Bucks because it’s been a common theme lately with some of the small business owners I’ve met, and even some of my own clients when they first start working with me. None of us want to get in business to fail. We certainly don’t want to go back and get a J.O.B. either. So what do you do when your business just hasn’t produced a lot of revenue yet or you started out and maybe invested the money you did have in some of the wrong places? No one likes to talk about this either, like it’s not happening or something. Don’t be embarrassed if this is you because it’s pretty common. Entrepreneurs are starting … [Read more...]
