Janine Bolon: Hi. Welcome to this episode of the 3 Minute Money Tip. We produce our show every Friday. I’m so excited today because we have Katrina Sawa. She is with us today coming to us from California. She happens to be known as the Jumpstart Your Biz Coach because she helps entrepreneurs make more money doing what they love fast.
Janine: Let me tell you something, this woman is all about speed. This is why she and I connected. I am very direct. She’s very fast at what she does. We want you to make money. We want you to make money now. Why? Not just so that you can make money for money’s sake, so that you’re living that life that you’ve always dreamed of. We were the generation that was told, “Hey, do what you love, the money will follow.” Guess what? Katrina’s here to educate you that you need a little bit more than that, a little bit more than just love on that. We’re very excited that her no-nonsense approach is here to help you develop your profitable business. She has proven marketing, and business strategies are going to help you with that. She has been featured on Oprah & Friends, XM radio network, ABC, The CW, and all kinds of wonderful influential podcasts like yours truly, and so, definitely, a woman that knows what she’s doing. Katrina, we would love for you to share with us today your 3-minute money tip.
Katrina Sawa: Thanks, Janine. Okay, so there are four hundred and sixty-two things I want to share with you, and I only have 3 minutes. [laughs] Seriously, money, money, money. Show me the money. Where can we find more money? How can you make more money? What can you sell for more money? I’m all about the money. Not because I’m greedy, or selfish, or all that kind of stuff. It’s because I know what money can do for you, in your life, your family, for your clients, for your lifestyle, for your health. When you have more money, you can buy the best health care, you can get the best supplements perhaps. You can get extra second and third opinions by outside doctors, that’s what I do. Because, hey, being over fifty, there’s hormone stuff that goes on. You got to be able to have the money that you need in order to make of the life that you want, and you can’t settle for less just because you don’t see what’s possible. I love to help people see what’s possible. What else is possible for you? How much more money could you really make in your business; in your career if you have a job. Maybe you need to leave the job in order to make more money because when you are an entrepreneur, it’s unlimited. It’s really unlimited. There’s so much opportunity to make more money doing what you love.
Katrina: Some people say that you should live within your means, and I’m like, “Screw that.” Just make more money, sell more stuff. There’s no means, change your means. Change your means, don’t live within your means. Change your means so that you can get what you want. First, you have to get clarity on what your value is. Are you worth $100 an hour, $500, $1,000 an hour? I know this is a hard conversation, and we don’t have time to get into that whole thing, but when you are clear on what you are worth and you feel valued, then you create the programs, products, and services that will allow you to receive that money that you’re worth. When you have that confidence in what you’re doing and the clarity on what you’re selling and who it’s for, the cash flow will come in. It just will, but when you don’t have clarity or confidence, the cash flow is like “Wah.” It’s sometimes like a roller coaster, right?
Katrina: I know when I first started my business, I started at $59 an hour because I didn’t know any better. That was actually probably pretty high nineteen years ago. But now, it’s just skyrocketed. The more clients I get, the more proof that I have that what I’m sharing is great. Go out and do your genius but charge what you’re worth. I say charge as much as you can say without stuttering. When you stutter, you lose the sale. Please think about raising your rates, pushing the limit, getting outside your comfort zone a little bit, and go make more money.
Janine: That, my dear friends, is so… There’s so much more that Katrina can do for you. I have seen her on webinars. I’ve been able to sit with her when she was teaching classes, it was wonderful. I highly recommend that you go to her website, which is at jumpstartyourbiznow.com. She’s one of these people who is like me, very, very generous. You will have so much free stuff. Actually, she has a tendency to teach by the firehose method, which means she gives you more than you can completely process. Go ahead, go to the show notes here on 3 Minute Money Tip. Go to jumpstartyourbiznow.com/freetrainings, you won’t be disappointed, it’s totally worth your time. She will make sure that you get more money coming into your business.
Janine: All right. I can’t say enough about the wonderful Katrina Sawa. This is Janine Bolon signing off for this Friday. I have good news on the 3 Minute Money Tip that’s coming up, but sh. I can’t say anything until we sign the contract. More to come. See you soon.
