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


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!

How to Choose the Right Mastermind For You and Why Being in One Totally ROCKS! (Part 2 of 2)


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 business … [Read more...]

Les Brown and Motivating Hundreds of Thousands


  This week I had the pleasure of speaking on stage alongside a very powerful motivator and speaker....Mr. Les Brown! It was exciting to not only hear him speak again but to be in a lineup with him this time was utterly amazing. Of course as the busy man that he is we didn't have a whole lot of time to truly connect but he was excited to receive my book, Love Yourself Successful, maybe he'll read it and see what I'm all about? One can only hope that it inspires him or someone he loves and shares it with just as he inspires me. This week was the Unleashed Biz 2013 event here in Sacramento. There were 11 other speakers including me and Les who were phenomenal. While we all made … [Read more...]

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?

3 Sales Strategies to Incorporate Into Your Presentations or Speaking Gigs


Speaking in front of an audience is often intimidating or scary. Some of us are more comfortable with it than others. Selling from the stage or in front of a room to a group is a different story though. You may be comfortable speaking and giving great content but are you making an offer or leading the audience to buy something or take an action of any kind? Often times we don’t do these things during our talks because we aren’t allowed to of course depending on the venue and type of event. But other times we are allowed to sell but still don’t or we just don’t do a very good job at it for one reason or another. Typically people who try to sell from the stage but aren’t quite sure … [Read more...]
