Many of Kat’s Happy Clients…Testimonials From the Heart
“Katrina Sawa is a more than just a business coach, she is a mentor. Katrina has taught me marketing strategies that WORK! In just a few months, I implemented a long over-due email campaign, created new products, sold new services and made connections with more clients than ever before. Katrina is someone I trust completely to guide me in my business offerings and I highly recommend her.” ~ Alicia White, Graphic Designer and Branding Strategist, Back of the Room Productions and SpeakerSheets.com, Wiley, TX
Before I met Katrina, I was a personal trainer/ group fitness instructor in Manhattan running around like a madwoman all day long. By the time I came home I had just about enough energy to stare at the wall and drool. I knew I couldn’t go on like this forever. And I was planning on having a child, so my time for running around was about to be, well, cut out completely. How was I going to make more money than I was making, and work less??? I had no idea, and I am so fortunate that I stumbled into Katrina Sawa! She spelled out exactly what I needed to do, step by step, and supported me along the way. Before I knew it, I had launched my first online fitness program, and it was successful! Before I met Katrina, I would never have thought I could do this, but she prompted me to keep taking steps, whether I thought I could or not! I now run fun and effective online fitness programs regularly and end up helping many more people in much less time! And I have plenty of time to spend with my son ~Miranda Zukowski, The Fitness Coach for Entrepreneurs http://www.mirzukfitness.com

“I have recently had the absolute pleasure to work with Katrina Sawa to breathe some new life into our marketing and sales focus. Wow!! What a difference just even four months so far makes! In that four months, between our 1 on 1 strategy calls and an amazingly beneficial ½ day planning session, we were really able to map out the direction that we wanted to go. The ½ day session was intense and so incredibly productive, the ideas and thoughts just seemed to come forward effortlessly for Kat who was focused and on point with what we wanted to accomplish. Katrina was able to take a peek into our business life and help us work smarter, not harder! Even right down to simplifying and updating our order taking / accounting processes, getting everything into one place! Talk about a timesaver! I sincerely feel much more confident now with our efforts both online and offline in our marketing and how we can easily generate leads through multiple strategies we have implemented because now we know how to do it all! We are even delegating too!Thank you Katrina for your top notch and invaluable services!” ~ Lisa Lemus, (formerly with) AP Products, approductshome.com
Katrina is a master at internet marketing. It was Katrina that introduce me to having a business that can be global and mobile. She gave me the tools to launch and build my online empire and create my very first tele-seminar that feature me interviewing top 6 & 7 figure women entrepreneurs including Kat the Kat-alyst herself. All of this has allowed me to receive and sell $10,000 coaching program within a week. I would not be the entrepreneur I AM today if it weren’t for my coaching session and connection with Katrina. I highly recommend working with her if you are serious about becoming successful and abundantly prosperous in your life. ~Dorris Burch, http://www.DorrisBurch.com
The first time I ever heard of Katrina, one of her coaching clients was giving a glowing review of how she had helped her turn her business around at a Loral Lengemeier event that Katrina had just spoken at. Shortly after I purchased her Love Yourself Successful book when it came out and went to her website as the book instructed to take advantage of her free goodies. Because of her amazing follow up, I signed up for her 6 week Jumpstart Your Business group coaching program.
Katrina talks fast and gets right down to business. I have a notebook filled with several pages of notes on actions and recommendations she gave for my business website, lead generation strategies, my brochure and direct mail piece, networking, determining how to get paid, places to look for clients, using Facebook, effective follow up…..I could go on! Katrina knows A LOT about marketing and she is willing to share it ALL. I made a lot of progress during my coaching, gained a lot of knowledge, and made progress on getting systems in place in my business.
What I appreciate most about Katrina is that she has mastered the most important sales systems: lead generation, appointment setting and lead conversion and she walks the talk. Just enter her funnel by opting into her list and see a master at work! I also appreciate her warmth and friendliness when I see her in person and that she continues to follow up even when the class is over.
If you are looking for accountability, systems and a ton of solid business advice, Katrina’s your girl.

“Katrina is a wealth of information and strategy. She helped me develop my first comprehensive program so client’s received both healing sessions and products in the package so they received more benefits and I am working smarter instead of harder. She also helped me to realize my value and charge more. I was able to increase my mailing list at networking events using strategies she gave me. Her only weakness is she has so much to share sometimes my head wanted to pop while taking it all in! She was also available in between calls which was great as different opportunities presented themselves. Sometimes these opportunities were not a good fit and I would have been wasting my time, she kept me focused on areas that aligned with my mission and would generate more revenue. I enjoyed being a part of her mastermind group and learned a lot.” ~Laurie Ratto, RN, HTCP, Clinical Aromatherapist, Alameda, CA http://www.mindandbodymethod.com
I first met Katrina back in 2005 when I was starting up my business in Folsom. She gave me so much information and ideas that I have been continuously using them for the last 8 years! Of course I consulted with her since that time, but one of the things that I am so grateful for is that she is still here! Still helping people grow their business. Still offering her services and willing to help out when needed. She helped me not only with my local hypnotherapy services, but also helped me launch my hypnosis CDs and mp3 recordings on a national scale. I can’t tell you how many times over the last 8 years I have been frustrated by services that have come and gone and now offer no support or encouragement. She has always been there for me and I greatly appreciate the fact that her steady support and services will be there in the future as well. In fact, I received so much pertinent data from her that I am still implementing what she suggested 8 years ago. Not that I have been ignoring what she originally said, it’s just that she gave me so many valuable insights and suggestions that it could take years to implement all of them. And that was a great way to grow my business at a rate that suited my needs. There are so many aspects to having your own business that it is comforting to know that when I am ready to take the next step that she is there with the knowledge and the plan to help me achieve those goals. If you are ready to move forward with your business, please give her a call and let her help you become even more successful. ~David GreenwoodGreenwood Hypnotherapy http://www.GreenwoodHypnotherapy.com
I’ve taken many online and in-person marketing workshops, seminars and coaching over the years so I recognize when a trainer’s primary motivation comes from a genuine desire to help others vs. satisfying their ego or their bank account.Katrina Sawa is the real deal! Marketing secrets that I’ve heard from no one else, and practical spot-on, step-by-step advice flows from her like it’s channeled from a higher power! And Katrina doesn’t hold back. She generously shares all she has with her customers. As someone whose marketing was hit and miss, at best, until I found Katrina, I’m loyal to her for her honest insights and genuine desire to help me bring my gifts to the world. She has inspired me to believe in myself and my mission, think bigger, create my marketing plan, focus on specific revenue generating activities every day and start building a team to help me grow my business. Thank you Katrina! – Wendy Vineyard, Your Coach for Mastering Menopause…and More! http://www.NaturalMenopauseNow.com.
I won an excellent prize of talking with Katrina for an hour. The value I received through that hour was so astounding, that I was eager to sign on for an additional 90 minutes with Katrina. Through these minutes with Katrina, I learned so much about what I needed to do next with my business. Now I am on the fast track for a strong business foundation. I’ve followed through with many of Katrina’s recommendations and this has kept me focused and with more direction. Thank you Katrina! ~Sue Bock, http://couragetoadventure.com/
Hi, I’m Felicia Streeter, I help entrepreneurs create systems and build winning teams. So that they can step into being a true visionary thought leader, work less, make more money, and experience true freedom. I show them the true meaning of having it all without having to do it all, with Quarterback Without Touching the Ball.
After my daughter connected me to Katrina, I just signed up for her emails, which I was getting for probably a year. But then I met her at eWomen Conference, which I’m a member. And at that time, I had already decided that my focus for the next year would be on “Marketing”. That’s where I would invest. Katrina had a get together, she offered her “Jump Start Boot Camp”. I signed up. The best invested I had made to date! And I’ve invested 10’s of thousands of dollars in programs and coaching. After the first call with Katrina, I realized two things, one she could be charging a lot more for the information she provides and two she gave a lot of great information, and that was just after the first call. And Katrina holds you accountable, which we all need because life will happen.
Then after attending Katrina’s 2 day weekend Intensive, more great content. I decided to work with her 1 on 1 for coaching. This is where the magic really happened. She held me accountable, and helped me gain clarity, focus, and take action. And it’s been great to have someone to bounce my ideas off of and get some course correction along the way. I’m making more money, I’m no longer overwhelmed because Katrina gave me templates, step by step processes, help with implementation, we mapped out a plan and strategy, and access to her resources. I can’t express enough the impact Katrina has had on my business and my life.
If you’re thinking of working with Katrina in her group program or 1 on 1 coaching, either way you have access! A lot of coaches don’t give you access like Katrina does. If you need help with your Marketing then Katrina is the best I know out there. I strongly suggest you consider Katrina, you won’t be disappointed.” ~ Felicia Streeter, Million Dollar Mentor, DeSoto, TX www.FeliciaStreeter.com
Well, Kat, “Jump Start” are the perfect words to describe your coaching services. But not just “Jump Start Your Marketing.” The 1-on-1 VIP coaching you gave me Jump Started my entire business! Because of you, I took my passion from “hobby” status to actual money-in-the-bank “business” status! For me, getting my book written provided the entry I needed to work as a professional speaker and mentor to college women. I knew my passion. I knew my message. But how to organize the most salient points into a book? I needed a hook that would be the foundation of not only my book format but also my workshops, presentations, products, and services.
You asked the right questions, actively listened, and quickly understood the fundamental message I was poised to communicate. Then you synthesized and brainstormed with me until we teased out the strategy. That process — on top of the myriad and germane marketing pearls you imparted along the way — empowered me to forge ahead. As a result of your expert guidance, my path became clear and there was no stopping me from that moment on. I simply couldn’t have done it without you. You have all the requisite characteristics of a perfect coach: Your enthusiasm and support never wane. Your knowledge and skill are ever-present. And your recommendations are spot-on.
I cannot say enough about your versatility, professionalism and positive energy. You obviously care immensely about your clients and are invested in our success. You’ve no need for time-filling fluff. You roll up your sleeves, get on board, and provide insightful resolution. Any time I need another “Jump Start,” you’re my coach, Katrina! Thank you so very much!”

“It was Katrina who made the right connections to land my business in a feature spot on Good Day Sacramento”
“When I first opened my doors at Cybertary, Katrina helped me hit the ground running with my marketing efforts. She jumped right in and helped produce a creative and strategic marketing plan for Cybertary franchisees and helped me brainstorm winning promotional ad copy-all with a relatively minimal investment and great bang for the buck.
Katrina worked conscientiously within the vision of my business and within the constraints of my budget. By helping me make a few connections within her comprehensive list of business associations, she gave me the proper kick in the pants I needed to get networking and moving toward the growth I imagined.
Ultimately, it was Katrina who made the right connections to land my business in a feature spot on Good Day Sacramento (TV show). This and her other innovative and effective solutions gave Cybertary the results we needed to make the next step toward the bigger business goals.”
Patricia Beckman Roseville, CA www.cybertary.com
“Before I started working with Katrina I did not know how to get my new business off the ground or how to revive our existing business. Katrina helped me do both with enthusiasm coupled with “out of the box” ideas. I now have road map for my website business and our graphic design business has had more interest and activity than we’ve had in over a year. Thank you Katrina.”
“I am amazed at how much material we covered in such a short period of time. You didn’t waste any time getting down to business. You focused like a laser beam and the direction you provided was right on target, practical and specific. Everything we discussed could and should implemented in a matter of weeks, if not hours. In fact, I began rethinking several of my marketing strategies the minute we got off the phone. It all made perfect sense. Often as entrepreneurs we can be our own worst enemy and you need someone like Katrina to push the levers you can’t or won’t for yourself. Katrina, I can’t thank you enough.”
~ Veronica Mayo, Founder, Vemayca Cosmetic Bags, www.vemayca.com
“When I came to a point in my business where I felt stuck and unsure about the best ways to move forward, enroll more clients into my programs, and utilize the opportunities and events that I had lined up, I knew I needed the support, guidance, and expertise of someone who was already at the level in their business where I desired to be; that’s when I contacted Katrina Sawa about her 1-on-1 coaching. My primary desire was to get targeted and strategic advice that I could immediately implement in my business to start seeing results.
Within our first session, Katrina provided me with the information that I needed to begin transforming my website to more clearly express the value that I offer through my work and then strategies to increase my visitor rate and client interest. Each coaching session added tremendous value to help me immediately move forward to the next step that I needed to take. I highly recommend Katrina Sawa to entrepreneurs who are ready to take action NOW and move their business to the next level fast!” ~ Lisa Hromada, Personal Branding Strategist, http://www.lisahromada.com
“I spoke with Katrina twice in two weeks and as a result I have some new ideas that I’m veryexcited about regarding how to market my business and how to structure my services and products. More importantly, Katrina helped me get focused with an action plan and defined goals. Plain and simple, saying that my experience with Katrina was “worth it”, does not nearly do it justice. This was an invaluable experience, one that potentially could completely change my business.” ~ Kevin Harris, Owner, Chicago IL www.quicksolvers.com
“Katrina is serious and fun when it comes to helping you zero in on your business model and structure. She’s got a knack for finding possible streams of income that you can start building and implementing right away. I also find her to be honest and upfront about her own business experiences which is so refreshing.”
~ Helen Kim, Founder, New York, www.YourMoneyRelationship.com
“I thought I knew a LOT about marketing and attracting clients but after my one-on-one with Kat I realized I had just BEGUN.”
“I thought I knew a LOT about marketing and attracting clients buy after my one-on-one with Kat I realized I had just BEGUN my trek up Mt. Kilimanjaro! Kat was a perfect match for me. As a fiercely independent solopreneur I have heard it all…but Kat’s presentation techniques make the three hour 1on1 call seem like a fireside chat with a long lost friend and poof! before you know it the three hours are up and you’re staring at 20 pages of killer notes!
I learned EXACTLY what I needed to do to jump start my email list. I learned what was wrong with my website and what needed to change right now to attract a rainfall of new subscribers that WANT to get on my list and buy from me.
I really recommend hiring Kat as she takes you outside the comfort zone of home based business mediocrity. Kat has learned from the best. Why would you use anyone else?”
Michelle Quintana, Bulldog Creative Copywriting, Long Beach, CA www.bulldogcreativecopywriting.com
“Katrina is a valuable member
of my resource team.”
“During the phenomenal marketing session I had with Katrina where she gave me many great ideas to help me with my marketing strategy as well as provided feedback on how to jazz up my web site, she also mentioned Constant Contact. So when I heard she also teaches people how to use Constant Contact I signed right up! In just a short period of time, with Katrina’s excellent training and coaching, I was up and running with my new and improved eNewsletter. She is a valuable member of my resource team for anything to do with marketing and eNewsletters. Thank you again Katrina, for your contagious enthusiasm for your work, and helping with my business success!”
“I was amazed at HOW MUCH MATERIAL we covered and all the ideas I went home with to implement…”
“It was so wonderful to speak with someone who was so knowledgeable and who “got” my business. The time flew by in our 1-on1- Planning Meeting; I was amazed at how much material we covered and all the ideas I went home with to implement in my marketing. The meeting was a great reminder to get out of the box with my marketing and go for it. Thank you for the letters and other resource material that you emailed me after the meeting. It was all invaluable! I will definitely refer you to my friends, peers and colleagues.”

“I learned so much about marketing, websites and advertising that it’s taken me weeks just to sort it all out!”
“My three hour meeting with Katrina was fantastic! I learned so much about marketing, websites and advertising that it’s taken me weeks just to sort it all out. She has so much information to share – and we have just begun the process of setting it all up. I see that she has a focused, well-thought-out plan for my business that will aid me in achieving my goals. I highly recommend her services to everyone who’s ready to take their business to the next level – or even just get better organized! In addition, she has a wealth of local contacts that sets her apart from coaches in other parts of the country, and her dynamic, enthusiastic approach speaks not only to her broad understanding of how to best help her clients, but also to her kind, caring nature. I look forward to working with her in the future as well. Give her a call – you’ll be happy that you did.”
David Greenwood, Greenwood Hypnosis and Wellness Center, Folsom, CA
“Your presentation was one of the very best we’ve had.”
“Thank you again Katrina for your wonderful presentation on “9 Strategies to Boost Your Sales Copy”. You shared so much valuable information and expertise in such a short period of time. I know that 20 minutes is not a lot of time, but you did a terrific job outlining the information you were sharing, giving examples and interacting with the audience. I have to say that your presentation was one of the very best we’ve had. I’m always thrilled when my members and guests are able to leave with some very specific tools and ideas that they can implement right away. And, as usual, the positive energy you bring to the room is contagious. Thanks again!”

“Katrina – Just wanted to say how
much I love your newsletter.”
“I actually can “hear” you talking and feel your natural energy through the computer!! I haven’t seen you in a while…my schedule has taken me in some other directions. My mom, Linda Hanf-McIntosh of Around Here Magazine and I were talking about this months newsletter and how informative it is. Thank you for keeping relevant info. and great articles too. Looking forward to seeing you soon! Take care!”

“Kat went out of her way to give me great value for my Investment in her services. She helped guide my business to a much more profitable status.
If it weren’t for Kat teaching me to value my time, I’d still be trying to live on wages that were taking my standard of living into the poorhouse!”
“I hired Katrina to work with me to assess my “less than thriving Home-Based Business;” as I wanted to take my business to a much more profitable level, and what I’d been doing myself the past year wasn’t working. I’d met Kat a number of times at different networking events in the recent past and liked her energy and professional presence.”
When I needed help building my business, I immediately remembered Kat is an “Expert Marketing Specialist and Coach.” I desired to live a lifestyle that would be equal to what she had built for herself; and knew that if she could become a successful solopreneur woman-owned business, that I could too with her professional guidance!
I found Kat to be more than energetic, very confident & an extremely creative Marketing Specialist & Business Building Coach. Kat went out of her way to give me great value for my Investment in her services. She helped guide my business to a much more profitable status.
Since hiring her, I have implemented many if her suggestions for change; as venture capital and time allowed. To date I have acquired 2 wonderful clients, whom I enjoy working for in my Virtual Assistant Business. The greatest difference is, my clients value my time and gladly pay me what I’m worth. That speaks volumes.
If it weren’t for Kat teaching me to value my time, I’d still be working in the USA and trying to live on wages that were taking my standard of living into the poorhouse; however, those same wages would be an affluent income to some individuals who work in other countries. Kat taught me that I simply cannot work with some clients, and that’s OK. So, with that in mind, Kat is worth ever dollar she charges her clients, as she lives and works in the USA! Thanks Kat! You are awesome!”
Lynda Nurenberg, Virtual Assistant, Cameron Park, CA

“I spent over $20K in 10 years and NEVER received an end-to-end solution like this!”
“WOW Kat – I am totally blown away. I have spent over $20k in the last 10 years on my business and never received an end-to-end solution even though they said they provided for that. Katrina Sawa is the person I have been looking for because she handles this stuff to make me successful, tells me what I need to be doing, sets up the systems for me to maintain, and this allows me to focus more on other things, such as Coaching and serving others, networking, using the systems that have been set up for me – Hire her, you will save $ in the long run, you will invest more in yourself by doing so, and you will be more successful quicker.”
Darshana Hawks, Relationship-MD
“Katrina literally has SAVED ME months of trial and error time, as well as, saved me incredible amounts of MONEY by avoiding costly mistakes.”
“As a result of Katrina Sawa’s 1-On-1 Planning Meeting, I created a new website, wrote a special report, developed an audio script, and began building my list of qualified prospects, all within just a few weeks. I already had a basic marketing plan, but Katrina supercharged me into action by effectively accelerating the implementation process of the marketing plan. She provides so much information and specifics on “how to implement” actions that she literally has saved me months of trial and error time, as well as, saved me incredible amounts of money by avoiding costly mistakes.
Any entrepreneur who wishes to successfully take their business to the next level, effectively, quickly, and at a great value, should sign up for Katrina’s services and mentor program as soon as possible. You can’t afford NOT to hire her! Katrina’s marketing expertise is that valuable.”

“I read your free report on JumpStart Your Marketing. Excellent advice, all the self proclaimed marketing “Gurus” I have read or listen to, not one puts it as succinct as you have for the small business.

“You brought SO MANY IDEAS to the table which sparked more ideas and really helped me to THINK SMART about marketing my business.”
“In our 1-On-1 Planning Meeting, I felt you came up to speed in seconds. You definitely grasped our business and our target market. You got me thinking about our marketing conceptually. I think that is so important. You got me fired up and on track. You gave me some good, solid marketing basics to live by like ‘target your target market, don’t spend money on the fringe market initially.’ You brought so many ideas to the table which sparked more ideas and really helped me to think smart about marketing my business. It was truly a “jump start!”

“You made me a believer”
“Hi Kat – I don’t know if you remember me or not… I was the person in the wisdom circle in transition not knowing which direction to take in her life… the one who you promptly and kindly presented with your book. I thought I would follow up and let you know that I came back from Dallas (eWomenNetwork annual conference, 2007) convinced that I should become a Training and Organization Development Consultant now in my life and forget about finding that corporate job again. I’m merging the coaching and maximizing a person’s strengths into that business. Within a week, I signed my first contract and I now have the time to spend with my children over the summer and simultaneously have some income coming in. …Yes, I read your blog which was when I really felt guilty about not even responding to you. This whole “lifestyle” is so very different from the corporate world that I left that I am still adjusting to it. …Thought I should let you know that you made me a believer in how “It will all work out in the end.” Thank you for the inspiration! P. S. I loved your story. Each time I get your email, it re-energizes me!”
Gail Stockton, Consulting by Stockton
“This is by far the most valuable, and helpful marketing information I have been introduced to.”
“I met Katrina Sawa in 2007 at the Opportunity Expo in Sacramento. I knew right away she had the kind of information that I was looking for in order to make a difference in my business. A couple of months later I decided to sign up for a one on one consultation. I thought I knew how to go about generating business and I realized after our call there are so many other ways to generate business. Not only did I learn new and valuable information but Katrina is very good at listening, and solving my needs. I have told all of my friends, and family about how helpful her information has been. This is by far the most valuable, and helpful marketing information I have been introduced to. I would recommend Katrina Sawa’s services to anyone looking to expand their business.”
Kelli Decker, Prudential California Realty, Sacramento, CA

“Katrina helped me sort through the maze of sales and marketing tactics out there and assisted me in creating a system that is appropriate for me and my specific business needs.”
“I would recommend her services to any small business owner or entrepreneur who is new to this very confusing and overwhelming world of business sales and marketing. If you are looking for a place to start Katrina would be the one to go to. My favorite tool of business marketing is Face to Face Networking. I have created many, many, business and personal relationships that I will continue to nurture and grow, now and in the future. That is how I met Katrina, and from our very first encounter she encouraged and cheered me on to step out of my comfort zone to go out there, introduce myself, get to know other successful and empowered women!! Thanks, Katrina!”

“Kat gave me the push I needed to move beyond my comfort zone”
“I’ve been working with Kat for several months now, and she’s completely changed the way I look at my business. Before meeting her, I traded my time for dollars. This was a big problem because there are only so many hours in the day and, since I was already working 14-16 hours per day, the only way I could increase my income was to increase my fees. She convinced me to hire a virtual assistant, something I knew I needed to do but had been resisting for months because I couldn’t find the time to train someone so I could have more time. How crazy is that thinking? A few short weeks later, I’ve freed up 2-3 billable hours a day and finally got to many items that have been on m To-Do list for months. Kat also convinced to begin looking at ways I can create passive income like e-books, home study programs, books, live workshops and teleseminars. My business has grown dramatically in the last month alone, despite all the problems with the economy. I credit Kat for giving me the push I needed to move beyond my comfort zone.”

“One of Katrina’s BIGGEST gifts is her ability to “see things””
“If you are a women business owner wanting to grow your business and you are not afraid to work hard – Katrina Sawa is the person you need on your team. As the Jump Start Your Business Coach Katrina has helped hundreds if not thousands of women all across the US and beyond to make a significant difference in their businesses. She has developed a multitude of products you can use to take your business to the next level. One of my favorites is the amazing follow-up program she has created. Most people stop their follow-up after 2 to 3 times yet it usually takes clients/customers 8+ times to “get it”. Most people stop at 2 not because they don’t know the importance of follow-up but because they truly don’t know what to do after 2 tries. So if you know follow-up could make a difference in your business – you need to talk to Kat! On top of the amazing products she has she also offers a variety of coaching programs. One of Katrina’s BIGGEST gifts is her ability to “see things”. You can share a challenge with her and almost like magic she can very clearly sees a unique way to not just overcome it but blow threw it! So again if you are a women business owner and you are looking to grow your business you MUST check-in with Katrina.”

“Participating in Katrina’s Silver Mentor program has proven to me how much time I can save by delegating even more than I already am. The latest
teleclass recording and CD from May on the topic of Delegating gave me step by step recommendations for how to hire additional V.A. support to
streamline my business and create more time for fun and family. Thank you

I got through to Katrina to revamp my sales pitch for my ‘no pills, no lotions stop hair-loss and regrow hair program’ after spending much time and money with numerous ‘experts’. They merely grabbed the fee, spouted a few lines and said bye bye. Katrina took time, and patiently ran and reran and again reran through my site to get it into a meaningful concept. Thanks for that Katrina. ~Tom Turk, Phuket, Thailand
Wow! Your video is so powerful! I love it and what can I say… everything you say is true! Oh, my gosh, how much you’ve helped me and I’ve just started implementing… You so totally rock and I love how you’ve stepped up into your true purpose! I’m almost done reading your book and I need to go back and do the exercises. It is chock full of great advice!!! And the action steps are what really make it! ~ Gwen Lepard with Joyful Living Radio
Katrina is a no nonsense get to work kind of coach. My kind of gal. I always wonder how my former clients are doing but felt uncomfortable calling. Katrina “told” (ordered) me to call them and ask 4 questions. Now I had a reason and the feedback was so positive that I am more determined than ever to help as many women as I can to have the kind of life they deserve. It was an eye opener. I think many of us don’t realize how powerful we are and what a profound difference we make in people’s lives. Thank you for kicking my butt Katrina.” ~ Frances Soda, Pro EFT Practitioner, Windsor, ON Canada www.Tap-EFT.net
“I have recently had the absolute pleasure to work with Katrina Sawa to breathe some new life into our marketing and sales focus. Wow!! What a difference just even four months so far makes! In that four months, between our 1 on 1 strategy calls and an amazingly beneficial ½ day planning session, we were really able to map out the direction that we wanted to go. The ½ day session was intense and so incredibly productive, the ideas and thoughts just seemed to come forward effortlessly for Kat who was focused and on point with what we wanted to accomplish. Katrina was able to take a peek into our business life and help us work smarter, not harder! Even right down to simplifying and updating our order taking / accounting processes, getting everything into one place! Talk about a timesaver! I sincerely feel much more confident now with our efforts both online and offline in our marketing and how we can easily generate leads through multiple strategies we have implemented because now we know how to do it all! We are even delegating too!” ~ Lisa Lemus, AP Products, Roseville, CA www.approductshome.com
