My Theme for 2014 is to Simplify

simplify

This year I plan on doing the opposite of what a lot of business owners are doing. I plan on simplifying in my business. You see, a couple years ago I was trying to grow my business and a mentor told me to create this new product and this new program and this new service. And after a year or so of doing all of that and pretty much launching something new every other month or so, what do you think happened? You’d think I would have made oodles and oodles more money, but sadly, that did not happen. The revenue came in small chunks and because I had so many different ways to buy or different ways to learn (i.e.: products, programs, services) my customers and prospects were confused and … [Read more...]

20 Ways to Get Out of Your Funk in Business

AprilEvent

One of the biggest things I see with entrepreneurs in February is that they typically get into a funk. They set lofty goals maybe in January that still aren’t really coming to fruition or they’ve already backed out of the resolutions they’ve set and for whatever reason get into a funk about business stuff or personal (which in turn affects their business too).   Some of the things that can put us into that funk include: Realizing that what we’re doing to grow our business isn’t working Having negative people around you and saying unsupportive things Not having the funds to invest in or do the things you KNOW you need to do Just plain NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO I … [Read more...]

Why Aren’t You Paying Attention to Yourself?

hottub1

It's becoming very common, I see, for entrepreneurs, especially women entrepreneurs, to focus solely on their business and/or their career, yet forget one of the most important things they really should focus on. You need to focus on yourself, ladies. It's time to stop just doing things for everyone else, and it's time to start focusing on yourself.  I promise you that when you do this, you will attract more clients. You will make more money. And you will become more successful. However, I also guarantee that if you do not place a certain level of importance on yourself"?your health, your well-being, your love life, your environment, your support system, your time with your family, and … [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. … [Read more...]

Kids today are exposed to more issues than we could have ever imagined growing up. Look no further than the headlines and you will have your proof.  One reoccurring theme that shows up is the negative effects of low self-esteem in children and the serious consequences of them. Most of our kids are not even aware of their self-esteem, and without the essential tool of awareness, they are destined to relive old belief patterns and repeat negative behaviors over and over again. Now that just STINKS! What if through the use of simple, fun, exciting and entertaining exercises you could help improve kid’s self-esteem almost instantly?  What if you were given the tools and techniques … [Read more...]

Top 3 Ways to Get Out of Overwhelm

images

One of the main things that stops a lot of entrepreneurs from moving forward in their business or holds them back from reaching the 6-figure mark is being in overwhelm. Overwhelm can cripple a business owner. It sometimes gets so bad you may do nothing at all! And that’s not going to help you make more money or get more clients….you want to stay in constant action to see the best results. BUT those actions should be very strategic, planned and targeted to what you need to do to start, grow or market your business. Many small business owners focus on the wrong things first in their business therefore sometimes filling their schedule with unnecessary tasks rather than revenue … [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...]
