Chris has 30 years of experience in accounting, banking, real estate finance, and tax preparation for a very diverse group of people.

It’s Okay to Not Be Okay.

Whether it’s yourself, a staff member in your business or someone you care about, we have all felt the impacts of a stressful year behind us and the pandemic is still impacting lives everywhere. One of the first things Dr. Rika mentions on the show, is how a key part of identifying a concern or issue is to recognize it is completely acceptable to recognize something is wrong and talk about.

Recognizing the signs or symptoms of depression, anxiety or other cues that you or someone you care about may be struggling with.

Anxiety and depression can present differently from person to person. Kids are especially different. Dr. Rika shares some of the ways these symptoms show up and also gives tips on how to determine whether or not something more serious is going on while being careful to let the professionals do the diagnosing.

How to approach someone you care about or suspect may be struggling.

What to say? How to say it without being offensive or making them feel embarrassed. The importance of creating a safe space to share and not feel judged.

Telehealth and Virtual Therapy.

Is it here to stay? Did you know there are some accepted benefits of utilizing this form of help? In fact, you may be surprised to learn that you have access to more options and greater levels of care. Listen to this section to learn more.

The Importance of Giving Yourself Grace and Not Allowing Guilt

In this section, Bella spent some time emphasizing the normalcy of feeling guilt that so many parents experience. Often, we are so wrapped up in our businesses that we realize a good portion of the day went by and we didn’t take time to focus on our kids. Bella shares what has helped her in her own struggles.

When It’s Hard to Ask for Help and Setting Strict Goals.

Bella gets it. She’s been in the fire managing a very busy company while being a single parent and handling all the challenges that come with it. It’s very easy to blame ourselves or just feel guilty for not being able to do more. Frequently, we find ourselves needing some help and not reaching out to resources that are all around us. We can often find ourselves missing out on opportunities to get ahead or gain ground in certain areas because we aren’t asking for help and because we haven’t been intentional with the time that we have.  Bella offers some ideas to consider.

InstaCart, Meal Prep Services and Grocery Delivery – A New Friend?

Some people balk at using these types of services. Often, they feel that paying a little extra is a waste. Bella gives some very reasonable advice on why these services are actually great ways to save money, create time and help you in your business.

You’ll learn that it doesn’t have to be something as intense as doing an entire one-hour strength training routine several times a week but baby steps you can take to add up to big results.

Beware Of Certain Pet Business Coaches

Episode 226: Beware Of Certain Pet Business Coaches

Beware Of Certain Pet Business Coaches

 

Let’s talk about business coaches and mentors! This week, Bella, who is a big believer in coaches herself and has always had a coach, shares why it’s absolutely critical you choose the right business coach and what to look for. 

This episode stresses being aware of the rather startling movement where anyone and everyone is calling themselves a coach. Buyer BEWARE. It takes more than a brief dabbling in a business or a quickly attained certificate to make an effective results oriented coach.

These days we are seeing a wide range of new coaching titles: dog biz coaches, dog training mentors, or dog business consultants. 

They are the people that dog business owners, facility owners, and corporations come to when they want to revolutionize how they do the business of dogs. 

Beware Of Certain Pet Business Coaches

 

Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want to Miss

 

Not all coaches are equal.

Some haven’t been in business long and have just closed their doors on a pet based business that failed. Some decided coaching would be easier than working through a business with ups and downs and walked away. Now they think they should coach you, the pet business owner.

Examples of coaches who care and get results.

Bella is connected with commanding badass dog biz entrepreneurs who are dedicated to the growing and shifting dog training industry. These people are focused on and get results. As an example, Bella references The Grassroots Dog Biz School. This team consists of multiple 7-figure dog business owners, world renowned dog trainers, dog training facility owners, social media rockstars, Ivy League MBA holders and keynote speakers, etc. 

 

What happens when you aren’t sure if your business will recover from the pandemic?

Your business can recover! You are not alone. Bella shares a really meaningful analogy about a house in a storm and rebuilding. You don’t want to miss this part.

 

The importance of the right coach or mentor to help you rebuild.

Do you understand that choosing the right helpers to re-construct is just as important as choosing the right coach to level up? Let’s learn why it’s the same thing.

 

Are you the “right client” for a coach?

It’s critical that you be selective. Your time and your money is valuable. Hiring the wrong coach can not only cost you money but the price of how you’ll feel as an entrepreneur if you don’t meet your goals on time due to having the wrong coach is even steeper.

 

Show Highlights

Are you afraid you won’t recover after this pandemic? [4:00] 

The leaders you follow matter. Differences in types of coaches and so called gurus. [5:45] 

Understanding a coach’s motivation and goals. Is it to your benefit? [6:30]

What to look for when you choose a coach, cost of hiring the wrong coach [8:00]

Understanding their motivational style. ARE they even motivating? [9:15]

Are they results-oriented or just hope you show up for your sessions? [11:58]

Beware of FALSE COACHES. What to look for. [12:30]

What opportunities do they have to help you grow, materials, resources, etc. [14:00]

What type of client does Bella work with? [15:00]

Am I the RIGHT CLIENT for this coach? [18:00]

How do you “check” a coach’s heart? [22:00]

Episode 225 Running a Business Through Divorce or Major Life Changes

How Relationships and Emotions Impact Your Business

 

 

Bella talks about a common thread she sees year to year in business owners. This includes the depth of emotions and how paralyzing they can be when it comes to going about your daily work and your business. Bella opens up about her own experiences in a painful divorce and trying to keep her business running at prime levels. 

CAUTION: This episode is very raw and transparent. We are including a trigger warning here for anyone who may be sensitive to this type of material.

Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want to Miss

 

Emotional Abuse, Blatant Insults, Isolation, Coping, Loneliness, Embarrassment, Anger. 

If you’ve gone through emotional trauma, breakups or divorce, you may recognize some of those emotions. Bella lays her heart on the line. If you think you are alone, you’re not. She stresses it over and over. Her heartfelt identification with these emotions comes through. We are not alone.

The Importance of Emotional Intelligence. 

In this section, Bella discusses how the popular book Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman helped her through some of her more difficult times. Goleman popularized the concept of emotional intelligence (EI) and its use to help manage your emotions and guide your behavior and thinking. You can improve your EI with regular practice of controlling your emotions and staying calm when they overwhelm you.

Why It’s Important to Deal with Emotional “Baggage.” 

It’s so critical that we deal with the emotions that are crippling us and holdings us back in life, business and relationships. The trauma that Bella relates to us doesn’t always happen in divorces or romantic relationships. It comes in all forms. It can happen in friendships, family relationships – even in some business relationships. 

Getting the Right Help From the Right Sources.

 Remember, you are NOT alone. A failed relationship doesn’t mean you are a failure. But it is critical that you surround yourself with the right people and that you get help from sources that are qualified and that are also GOOD for you. Bella shares resources that were helpful to her during some of her most soul crushing moments. 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • DON’T MISS the opening. If you’ve ever doubted yourself or felt like you were alone in your feelings and emotions or what is/has been happening, you will know you aren’t alone after hearing the intro.
  • Emotional Intelligence and why you need to know about it. [7:20]

Bella discusses 4 Massive Secrets to Attracting Dog Walking Clients in 2021 and moving forward after a pandemic influenced 2020. Pet business owners can maximize this time in their businesses by leaping into the unique business opportunities Covid-19 restrictions have placed upon all of us.

Bella cautions us to push back on feelings of self doubt, skepticism or excuses why our businesses can’t flourish during this time. The reality is, there are businesses doing well in spite of the pandemic and Bella speaks about the strategies these businesses have in common.

The strategies talked about in today’s episode not only work, but they work very well. Each strategy has already been tried, tested and proven by pet businesses and other forms of businesses. Don’t wait! You’ll want to start implementing these today.

“How Do I Get More Clients?”

When asked what is your biggest challenge right now….business owners say “How Do I Get More Clients?”  People are certainly hurting financially during this time. But remember: There are plenty of people who are still spending money. They are just not using it on vacation or luxury type items. But, they are definitely spending. A ridiculous amount of spending is happening online. In fact, one statistic showed people spent more money online in the first quarter of 2020 than they did in the previous 10 years.

Generate more revenue with online and virtual business.

There is a BIG opportunity for you to grow your client base and it’s happening right now. YES, pet based business owners and dog walking services have a virtual or online component! Contactless is an option for pet sitting businesses! Don’t overlook this. The online space is your chance to show your clients how much you care and earn their trust. Bella shares more about this in the four secrets she shares with us.

You Have to TELL Your Clients About Your Covid Protocol.

Yes. We know there are banners at the top of everyone’s websites. We’ve all gotten the generic boring emails from companies explaining their Covid safety precautions. They have become white noise. We don’t “see” these things anymore, much less actually read them! Your clients and prospective clients often assume that certain businesses aren’t available to them because of Covid. Bella gives some excellent tips and ideas for incorporating your care for your clients into your marketing which increases your arsenal of client attracting tools.

Dealing with Feelings of Anxiety, Overwhelm, Depression During this Pandemic.

Worry, stress, anxiety, feeling stuck in a rut and just being sick and tired of being sick and tired are 100% normal. Isolation can cause business owners to spiral downward if they feel out of options. Bella reminds us of some ways we can reach out, get connected and take advantage of a large variety of resources, many of them free. There are some AMAZING opportunities for your business right now and all you have to do is implement them.

Episode 223: How To Promote Inclusivity with a DEI Statement In Your Business

 

The Importance of Diversity, Equality and Inclusivity in Your Business.

 

Hannah Boike is a hiring and recruiting professional with WalkerScout. WalkerScout is a unique RPO (recruitment process outsourcing) provider. Its mission is to help dog walking, dog daycare, and dog training businesses scout, hire, and support their teams. She is very passionate about implementing kindness, inclusivity, and diversity in the hiring process.

Joe Latona also appears on this episode. Joe is a motivated and dedicated HR professional, dog walking since 2008 and hiring staff since 2009. He has built award winning dog walking teams in Chicago and has hired pet care professionals across the United States. He is the founder of WalkerScout.

How Practicing Diversity and Inclusion Benefits Your Brand:

Not only do businesses have a moral and ethical obligation to be more inclusive but it is also financially beneficial. “When you put good out into the world, good will come back to you.”  

 

What is a DEI Statement? Why you need one and how to write it. 

Hannah shares the key elements of a solid DEI statement and resources for writing your own. You’ll also learn some of the places you should display your DEI statement and how to tailor your brand to appeal to everyone.

business mentors, financial services, ppp loan

Episode 221: Will My PPP Loan Be Forgiven?

Many of you have gotten a PPP Loan with hopes that it would be forgiven. Currently, the 28 weeks have passed and you might have started to see some people starting to say my loan was FORGIVEN. What is this all about and how can you do the same?

This week, I moved my regularly scheduled content around to get you this time-sensitive topic. I reached out to Linda and Trevor who have over 60 years of experience combined in the financial services industries. Linda Rey has owned, bought, and sold a business, and Trevor has managed multiple businesses. They have seen what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to business financing especially now with COVID. They have helped many people through the loan process. 

The questions they answer:

  1. Where does one submit their completed PPP forgiveness application?
  2. What happens if someone received the SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan (aka EIDL), how does this affect their PPP Loan?
  3. If someone was approved for a PPP loan and used 100% for payroll, why is there chatter of the SBA saying that they aren’t going to forgive $10k of the PPP loan because of the advance?
  4. Should I submit my PPP Forgiveness now or should I wait?
  5. I heard that PPP loans are going to automatically become 100% forgiven. Is this true?

Biggest Takeaway You Don’t Want To Miss: 

  • The PPP loan forgiveness program allows for forgiveness, certain percentages of the amount of the loan, depending on how you used the loan under (eligible expenses) and the idea is that you do not have to repay the loan.  
  • If you had a grant for the EIDL loan and you received that grant, then when you go for forgiveness the amount of that grant will be subtracted, which converts the grant to an advance. 
  • There is chatter out there on the internet about people saying wait until you file is because the chatter and talk in legislation is that in a new round of stimulus potentially, Congress may repair this aspect of the PPP program with the grant not being forgiven.

  • 15:30 – Should you wait to file for your PPP to be forgiven?

Episode 219: Marketing Mistake: Are You Hiding The Best Kept Secret In Your Business?

Why The Market Is Saturated With Privately Owned Pet Care Companies Dying To Be A Top Dog and The Solution

Are you making this marketing mistake in your pet business?

As an entrepreneur and business owner, everyone has a unique value proposition or what we call the “Secret Sauce”. Most of us don’t know, but we all have something unique about our businesses. We just need to dig deeper and discover where our business does well and to send that message about our brand.

Today we’ll be talking about how it all starts with sharing visuals, such as graphics. Graphics allow you to share your unique value with an audience. A picture can speak a thousand words, right? Well, those 1000 words should include your brand’s authority, and how you stand out in your community.

It doesn’t stop there. There’s more ways to stand out from the crowd, like emblems. Think of emblems as your shiny trophies that you can share with your audience. It tells your ideal clients to pick you, without you having to say so!

It’s time for you to stop hiding your best kept secret in your business, which is YOU.

 

 

Biggest Takeaway You Don’t Want To Miss:

Educating through graphics will show why you’re valuable as a business.  This is why I appreciate Pet Care Team Training so much. They take the thinking out of creating by providing branded graphics, training emblems, and exposure for your pet care business. Having all of this in one distinct place for you is one way to stand out in an effortless way.

Stand out without the burn out!

She lives just outside of Nashville in Franklin, TN, and has a 6-year-old son and a 3-year-old daughter who keeps her quite busy in her spare time!

In 2019, Joe began hiring for growing businesses in Illinois, California, Washington, and New York.
