Have you caught yourself buying into the belief that sales are icky?


You know, feeling like you don’t want to be too pushy or salesy. And believe that if you talk about your products and services too much you’ll come across this way.

 

And I get it. When I first opened my brick and mortar I remember being bombarded by salespeople wanting me to invest in paid advertising.

They’d show up unannounced (because this is a tactic), and ask for a minute of my time. Only to jump straight into a pitch.

 

OR…

 

The people who’d send me a link to a video to watch hoping that it would do the selling for them.

 

And we can’t forget about the used car salesman, which has given sales a bad name.

But the truth is sales aren’t icky, pushy, or salesy. In fact, it’s a...

When I first started my online business I struggled with feeling like an imposter. 

 

You know those feelings of…

 

Who am I to be doing this
What if they see me as a fraud
I feel like I need more training to be seen as an expert

 

Do you relate?

 

Even with my degrees and years of experience in the offline world I still felt like a fraud. Like I needed to accomplish more before I could take my business online.

 

The fear of being found out or called out scared the shit out of me. So much so, that I sat on the sidelines waiting for these feelings to go away.

 

Well, here’s the thing with ‘imposter syndrome’ or ‘fraud syndrome’, the majority of people experience this at some point in their career.

The ideas are flowing.

You are uber excited to share your products or services with the world.

But there is one problem...you just can’t seem to nail your niche.

You’ve spent weeks, months, maybe even years going in circles. And still, you don’t have the clarity you need to create that perfect client persona.

And you’re just about ready to throw in the towel.

Sound familiar?

Well, you aren’t alone my friend. 

The majority of my clients struggle with this exact thing. And after asking some questions I’ve discovered why it takes most people (what feels like) forever.

“Enoughness”: The Truth Behind Why You Never Feel Like You're Enough

Too busy to read this blog...well I’ve got your back friend. I’ve recorded an audio clip, so you can listen to it easily.

For most of my adult life, I believed my worth was measured by what I achieved, produced, and created.

The degrees.
The accolades.
The job titles.
The promotions.
The success.

Were all things that showed me and others I guess how valuable I was as a person.

How good I was.
How hardworking I was.
How smart I was.
How committed I was.
How determined I was.

Sound familiar?

When I started my online business I never quite felt like I was doing enough. I always questioned if what I was putting out into the world was good enough. And I worried that I didn’t know enough.

I honestly believed I needed more training, and more time to “perfect” my program.

Can you relate?

Well, here’s the thing about “enoughness” and why you never feel like you’re enough or worthy of your dreams. It’s all rooted...

Consistency: The lie you’ve been told that you believe will help you attract more clients

“How often should I post Kathryn?”
“How many emails should I send per week?”

 

Are two of the most common questions I get asked inside my Messaging that Sells Accelerator program.

 

“Consistency” is what most experts talk about. And it’s the trap most people fall into. It’s the lie you’ve been told that you believe will help you attract more clients.

 

Keep showing up. 
Keep creating content.
And eventually, it will pay off.

 

While I believe consistency is important, it’s not that important if you aren’t converting your audience from lurkers into clients.

 

Creating content without conversions as your end goal is just creating content without intention.

 

*facepalm*

 

And it’s the way you’ll end up spending...

“What if” is the killer of most dreams.

What if they say no?
What if they think my story stinks?
What if I never get published?
What if they hate my work?

I caught myself saying all of these things before joining Five Minutes to Famous.

Even though I knew that being featured in major publications was an amazing way to build credibility, and attract new clients.

It was my inner critic that stopped me for years from getting the help I needed to boost my confidence to pitch stories to the media.

Can you relate?

Well you’re not alone. It’s not easy putting ourselves out there if we know there is a chance of being rejected.

Plus...

What do I say?

Who do I send it to?
How long do I wait until I follow-up?

3 Lessons I've Learned from Launching My Businesses

Uncategorized May 25, 2020

Too busy to read this blog...well I’ve got your back friend. I’ve recorded an audio clip, so you can listen to it easily.

I'll never forget my first two launches.

They flopped big time...or so I thought. And after each one I was so drained I could hardly imagine getting back up and doing it all over again.

I mean why would anyone want to subject themselves to that kind of emotional roller coaster.

Well here is the thing...entrepreneurship is exactly that. And how well we ride the ups and downs is what matters.

Failure is one of our greatest lessons, yet we attach so many negative feelings and meanings to it that we often let it consume us.

And I don't want that for you. That is why I am sharing the three big lessons I’ve learned from launching my businesses so that you can avoid the mistakes I’ve made in the early stages of startup.

1. Get Back Up Quickly

I know my business would have experienced quicker growth had I got back...

Do you ever catch yourself wondering will this actually work? 

OR…

What if this doesn’t work?

 

I spent a good part of my early entrepreneurial days operating from the belief that things wouldn’t work, and I needed to do everything in my power to prove they could.

 

If I’m being honest it was exhausting. 

 

I was working on overdrive desperately trying to prove to myself and others that my business idea wasn’t stupid, and it was worth ditching my high-paying corporate career.

 

And I’d often talk myself out of going after what I really wanted, in fear of failing.

 

Please tell me I’m not alone…

 

The thing is...you don’t actually know the outcome until you try. No matter how convincing your mind is, it doesn’t know for...

Why I hate the question, what would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?

Uncategorized May 11, 2020

I cringe each time I hear this question, “what would you do if you couldn’t fail?”

#facepalm

Yup...I hate this question. It’s also a question I used to ask people.

So for the longest time I didn’t want to admit I hated it, because I didn’t want to be called out for changing my mind.

But it’s okay to outgrow how we used to do things. As we evolve it’s normal to shift and change our own perspectives. 

It doesn’t make you inauthentic, or fake. It makes you REAL. The same person we are right now doesn’t have to be the same person we were two years ago.

So the reason I started to hate this question is because I don’t believe our journey on earth is void of failure.

I actually believe failure is part of the process. But asking someone, “what would they...
