Meet Katrina Aronson
Katrina comes from the corporate world, and left it to pursue her entrepreneurial dreams. In 2013, she started her first business and scaled it to 6+ figures with a killer team. In a few years, she burnt out and burned it all to the ground (aka sold and got out). She wanted to scale her business without missing out on her life.
She has since poured herself into helping other women to reach their revenue goals without burnout, and she’s had the honor of working with 100+ women (and counting) to break through their glass ceilings with marketing as their not-so-secret weapon.

Why you have to have a unique marketing strategy
A lot of strategies work. If you believe it in and put your heart, soul, and effort into it, then it will very likely work.
But nowadays there are so many people selling things because of social media, because of how much people have access to them, and because the entry barriers are almost non-existent.
Plenty of people do, so what makes your business special? What makes it really shine?(Katrina Aronson)
Business owners, to be truly successful, need to find ways to stand out and then create a marketing strategy that amplifies uniqueness
This is what it takes these days because we are being thrown so much information at lightspeed … and it’s only going to get more complicated and [thicker]. There are benefits to this as well, but we have to keep up as business owners.Katrina Aronson
Now, you need to figure out: how can you do this without becoming burned out? How can I do this in a way that people are seeing my brand?
Marketing is 50% mindset and 50% strategy
When things don’t work well, you might blame yourself or invalidate your self-worth. Remember to separate yourself and your value as a person from the success of your business.
These transitions can be difficult, especially if you are operating your business online.
I realized that this isn’t about what I’m selling because we have plenty of people who are biting in the real world but now, we’re taking it online and it’s not working, so this isn’t about me as a person, this isn’t an attack on me, this is about how we’re positioning it.Katrina Aronson
Scrutinize your words because that is what will pull people in or not. A lot of mindset work goes into your marketing. Every single day when you put yourself out there, address how you are going to deal with challenges.
If you’re feeling afraid, what’s that next decision? Are you going to say, “Okay, I’m too afraid and I’m not going to do it” and retract? Or, are you going to say, “I’m afraid, why am I afraid, and how can I get past that?”Katrina Aronson
In this way, your mindset is a tool that can help you to decrease or prevent burnout. This is where your resilience comes in.
Craft your one-liner
Your one-liner is the story of your bio. Instead of explaining what you do, explain why you do it.
Why do you do what you do?
First, explain your story before you say what you do because it creates interpersonal connections before bringing the business in.Katrina Aronson
Katrina’s advice to private practitioners
People want to know who you are and a little bit about you, but it doesn’t mean that you need to reveal your life.
Share a little bit so that people can connect with you because it will allow your business to grow.
