Episode 273: Are You An Order Taker Or A Problem Solver?

 

Do you know how to identify if you are an order taker or a problem solver? In this week’s podcast, I am going to show you how to break out of some of these bad habits and come out on top of your business as the problem solver you want to be.

 

 

Biggest Takeaways

Where do you stand as the business world continues to change? Are you moving with the changes and sitting back and blending in? Over the next few months, I am going to teach you how to stay with the times and continue to push your revenue to the levels you dream of.

 

It Is Time To Become A Problem Solving Consultant

I know most of you would say no if I asked you if you are ready to start consulting but I know most of you are ready to start increasing your profits. I am going to teach you how to start being a consultant instead of selling. The climate is changing and you need to know how to maintain and increase your revenue.

 

Problem Solver VS Order Taker

Have you slipped down the path to being an order taker? Identifying where you and even your employees stand in the business as an order taker or a problem solver can drastically help you. The first step is learning where you stand in the sales process. Do you reach out and have an emotional conversation with someone who needs your services or do you just ask them how you can help? Once you know where you stand it is on to training your employees.

 

 

Sales puts people on the other side of the table, Problem-solving puts you both on the same side

Have you asked for help or reached out to a supportive community? All these questions can help you change your mindset and see where something might be going wrong. This is your business and you have the control to change anything you need to.

Lessons and Behind the Scenes of 5 Business Coaching Calls

Episode #271: Lessons and Behind the Scenes of 5 Coaching Calls


Lessons and Behind the Scenes of 5 Business Coaching Calls

 

Think about a time when you had a problem and you wanted to reach out for advice and then you thought… “Who would I even ask? How do I even find somebody to ask?” The business world can feel so lonely it’s hard to know where to go when you are stuck.

This is why I spend so much of my time fostering communities for you all. Today I am going to go over various lessons and success stories of some of my wonderful clients so you can start off 2022 on a great note.

 

 

Biggest Takeaways

Opening yourself up to new communities and people on the struggles of your business can be daunting and discouraging. But it is only after you take this step can you allow for a different perspective or ideas that can propel you into the dream business you imagined when you started your business.  Talking with like-minded business owners, business coaches & finding the right processes has been key to all of my client’s amazing successes and can be the key to yours too. Listen in to the lessons and behind the scenes of 5 coaching calls.

 

Showing Faith in Feedback

It’s very hard to allow someone into the details of your business, and even harder to then have them specifically looking for things that could be improved and pointing them out to you. While this makes anyone uncomfortable, it’s important to be willing to have faith in what your support community is telling you, knowing they have your best interests at heart. A supportive community is only as useful as you are willing to let them be, step out of your comfort zone and expand the possibilities to so many lessons that can be learned.

 

Where is Your Vision for the Future?

The business world is evolving faster than ever, many businesses fall prey to this evolution for one simple reason, they lack a vision and plan for their business. You should be regularly asking yourself if you are doing enough for your staff. Are they happy with you as an Employer? What lessons can be learned? You should also know where you see your business going. In what way do you want to expand your business? The end of the year can be a great time to reflect on the past year and set some solid measurable goals for 2022.

Stop Being Offended

Episode 270: Stop Being Offended

Stop Being Offended

 

How often do you get offended? How do you feel when someone turns away when they hear your prices? Or how about when someone is always asking for a discount? Have you ever said or thought “read my website”? Business has been booming and we have learned to become pickier… however as they have many times before they will again. Things are changing. Business will slow down and we need to know exactly how to keep jumping.

 

 

Biggest Takeaways

Stop being offended by people turning away at your services, or prices, have confidence in your business. Educate them about your business and learn how you can work with new clients and prospects as the market changes.

 

Stop Being Offended, Be Educated

The market is changing and so it is time we learn what we need to do to keep jumping. Stop being offended, set it aside, and educate yourself and your clients. If they hesitate at your prices talk to them and connect with them about how your services are worth it. When someone reaches out it is because they have a problem that needs to be solved. This is an opportunity to help them and teach them why you are the right one to solve their problem.

 

How Do You Have Confidence?

How do you sell? Do you direct them to exactly what they need? How about talk about them and connect about the problem? Do you ask them how you can follow up with them? Or tell them you will follow up and when? Look at how you have confidence and show you are confident in your business and your services.

 

 

Show Highlights

  • This is an opportunity to educate not be offended [6:55]

Episode 266: The Magic Problem Solver: Subjective vs Objective Reality

The Magic Problem Solver: Subjective vs Objective Reality

 

Do you feel stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to setting your prices? What if I were to tell you this is only because of your thinking? Having the proper view of your thinking process can make difficult decisions like price increases a breeze. In this podcast, I’m going to tell you the secret to identifying your way of thinking and how you can have power over it. If you are a subjective thinker you will learn how to become an objective thinker.

 

Biggest Takeaways

One of the biggest things I see affecting growing business owners is their thinking and the reality they live in day to day. Objective thinking and subjective thinking can be all the difference between your business’s success, and potential failure.

 

Identifying Your Thinking

Subjective thinking is very common when doing something as stressful as running your own business. Knowing the differences between subjective thinking and objective thinking can help you identify when you are thinking subjectively.

 

Your Objective Reality

To have an objective reality you must be able to identify how you are thinking and open your mind to the possibilities. This will begin to lay the building blocks for creating the objective reality you seek.

  • Objective reality vs Subjective Reality [7.00]

Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want To Miss:

The Right Mindset

The most important thing you can do to increase your chances of success is getting in the right mindset. The Pet Industry is a huge market that is relatively generalized so using your passion for your business is going to stand out when you are talking to a potential client.

Most people think competition is bad, that is can lead to negativity. However, that is not necessarily true. Your competition can teach you so much about your business and style and can even show you where you can improve if you look close enough. Competition can be a major benefit and it is important to know who they are and what they do.

What Can Be Learned

Communicate and ask questions. Find out what problems you can solve and help guide your potential prospects. It is important to be human and use your passion for your business to help these potential clients understand how you are different than your competitors and why you are the best option.

 

Be confident and know your competition

Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want To Miss:

Consult and Discover

The term “Sales” can create stress all on its own. We have to realize it is not sales that we provide as a service we are only consulting to provide a pet sitting or dog walking service. Talk to your prospect, listen to them and what they need, and provide them with services that can solve their problem. Discover what they need and how you can help, this will lead to closing sales more effectively.

Know Where You Are in the Closing Process

The sales process and closing process are different however they intertwine like a dance. sometimes you take 2 steps forward and one step back. It is all about listening and feeling where the prospect is at. The process can be step by step, but many times it is a dance you need to learn how to follow with your prospect if you wish to close the sale.

Be Confident in Offering Your Passion

Typically we started our business because we are passionate about pets and you need to use this to be confident. You can be an expert in sales, just look at all the time you were sold something, why did you buy it?

Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want To Miss:

The Secret to Winning Sales

Why did they come to you in the first place? Where are they in their mental and emotional state? Provide empathy and a solution no matter how basic or how in-depth they go when they first reach out, meet them where they are at. They reached out to you so connect with them and find out how you can help. You can start by saying something like “I am so glad I got ahold of you today because I want to help solve this for you” or “I am so glad to hear from you today.”

How to Get Through the Psychology of Talking to Clients

Be casual and recognize that they called you. Talk to them like you would friends and family not like you are trying to sell to them. This is a big part of the secret to winning almost every sale. Don’t pry from them just have a conversation. Remember why you started your business in the first place and the passion you have for your business, this will give you more confidence

What Do You Do If They Reached Out Via Email, Social Media, or Text

Try to get them scheduled for a phone call and connect with them. Show them it can be easy and convenient and that you have availability for them. Help them make the decision to go with you. Try even sending an audio or video clip of you responding so they can see you and feel your energy, leaving more of an impact on them.

That is why I made this podcast for you. I want to tell you exactly what your office managers need to know to take over your Facebook and Instagram. The project that is making you feel like you are being held back. You should not have to continue to feel this way, there is another option.

 

 

Biggest Takeaways

There are solutions and resources and I am going to tell you all about them… and… how to train your office manager to utilize them and learn everything they need to to keep your social media up to your needs.

 

What To Focus On

Social media is always changing and needs to constantly be relearned. However, there are some things that should always be followed if your office manager is going to successfully take over your Facebook and Instagram.

 

Utilize Resources and Train

Using the resources you have to stay on top of your social media is good but that does not mean your should stop training your office manager on how to use it for your business. There is so much more to look at than what you post and so much more to know that can be easily delegated to your office manager and I am going to tell you how.

 

Real Results

Do you want your social media to be even easier than passing it off to your office manager? What about not have to spend the time making sure your brand is followed perfectly? That is why I offer Better Marketing with Bella, to really help set you up for success because your success is my success.

It is so important to maintain your brand and keep positive energy with your social media and Better Marketing with Bella can help you do that. See what some of the members have to say and check out the website.

Saying no in your pet sitting business podcast episode featured image

Episode #258: Why Is It So Hard To Say NO In Your Pet Sitting Business


Saying no in your pet sitting business podcast episode featured image

 

I asked my Mastermind members, what should I talk about next on the podcast? And an entire conversation was sparked about saying NO. Why is it so hard to say no? To themselves, clients, staff? It is an interesting topic that I have a lot to say about.

There is something interesting that happens when you say no to people. They actually trust you more. They are never left wondering if you really mean something because they know that your yes is a yes and your no is a no. But if you are like many pet sitting and dog walking business owners I encounter, a lot of the times their yes actually means no but they are too afraid to say it.

Also… when you say no, you are setting boundaries in your life and actually building your own self respect. Your own person starts to gain confidence because they feel empowered.

 

Biggest Takeaways

When to Say No to Clients

Identify what kind of client you are working with. First, Is this an ideal client? Second, what does your policy say, these were made and written down, for this reason, to say no when you need to.

How to Say No to Employees and Applicants

Look at their availability stay strict with it. Set up policies for change but stay strict with those policies. How many times do you hire someone with availability and then it just keeps changing? Protect yourself and prevent this from happening.

What Makes You Not Say No?

Find the source of why you feel like you can’t say no. What thoughts run through your head? Attack the issue at the source not at the symptoms.

 

 

Show Highlights

  • Identify Your Clients and Say No to the Wrong Kind [5.45]
  • Your Policies and Prices are There to Support You [8.03]
  • Have Boundaries with Your Applicants and Employees [10.50]
  • Why Don’t You Say No? [14.45]

Listen in as Bella tells you all about how to change your mindset to the one you have been looking for.

 

 

Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want To Miss

Do You Work FOR Your business or ON Your Business?

If you are doing things on repeat or spending your time doing simple tasks then you should be able to pass them over to someone else and focus your attention on what your business needs to expand. Look at how you spend your days, how much time do you spend on tasks that someone else could have done?

Are Your Processes Simple and Accessible?

If it is complicated for you then it is complicated for your clients and potential employees. If it is not accessible then how is anyone able to help you? These are so important as thinking this way is taking that shift for your mindset to really scale your pet business.

Think Outside the Box, What If You Wanted To Sell?

You never know when this is going to happen since life is always changing. Even if you are not ready to sell it is all about setting up your business to be able to. Would you buy a business with no employees? What about one that does not have a PnL? Whether you actually sell or not keeping your business at this standard shows you what you need to continue to scale your business.

As incredible as these intensives are, they are still very new. With that, it leaves me learning a lot from each one and continuing to find ways to improve the process and make it EVEN BETTER!

Episode #253: The Secrets Behind Employee Scheduling

 

In this week’s Podcast, I am going to talk about the secrets to make your employee scheduling more efficient. Don’t be afraid, look at your SOP and employee handbook, do they set you and your employees up for success?

 

Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want To Miss

How Does Your Business Handle Employee Route Schedules?

Giving your employees the freedom to set their own schedules using time blocks can save time and money. However… are they trained to be able to do this correctly? Look at your systems and processes and ask yourself if you are just doing the work because you are afraid to let them take it over?

SOP and Employee Handbooks

Having an SOP and Employee handbook that streamlines this process will help you not have to micromanage. Employees will be more responsive if you are able to provide them with the trust that they can hit all their appointments as they need to and have you there to help them if they are unable to create their own route.

Is Fear Controlling Your Decisions?

Don’t let fear be the thing that holds you back. Fear comes from the unknown so make things known. This helps you take those steps that desperately need to be taken to make your business more efficient and get the most out of your employees. They want to do good and help you but micromanaging can prevent them from being able to do this.

 

 

Show Highlights

  • Does your SOP train your employees to schedule their own routes? (5.40)
  • Now when to take over scheduling and Offer help to assist them (7.15)
  • When to be alerted about when your employees are late (7.50)
  • When to realize you are micromanaging and how this can save you time and money (8.48)
  • Don’t be afraid of change. Rely on your SOP and Employee handbook (11.45)
  • Be prepared for the new changes in the business world (14.14)

Episode #252: How To Choose A Pet Sitting Software For Your Business

 

Choosing a pet sitting software is not an easy task. Maybe you’re overwhelmed with all of the different options out there, or even tried them all but just can’t decide.

It’s difficult to determine which features are important to YOU and then to match those needs up with software.

In this episode of Bella In Your Business, I sit down with Kristin Young, where she shares her scientific process for successfully choosing a pet sitting software to use in your pet business.

 

About Kristin

Kristin spent 20 years in corporate real estate and business. She “woke up” one day and realized she wanted to take control of her time and get away from the common cubicle. With two young kids and a supportive husband, she began the search for an income model that she could manage, grow, and LOVE.

In January of 2019, she came across the opportunity to buy NOT ONE, but TWO cat-sitting companies, with the intent to merge them into a single business. Kristen uses her business experience to take a little of what she knows and a little of what she doesn’t know to learn how to run a pet care business. One of the first steps was finding the RIGHT pet sitting software company.

Episode 251: How To Decrease Turnover and Create Raving Employees

 

In this week’s Podcast, Bella is going to tell you the difference between what happens when you have a streamlined onboarding process compared to being unprepared and wigging it.

She is going to teach you why the onboarding process alone has the biggest impact on your turnover rate and employee retention.

 

Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want To Miss

Having a Standard Onboarding Process Can Set You Aside from Other Employers

It’s commonly underappreciated to have a concise onboarding process. However… This is actually the most vital part about retaining employees, and weeding out the applicants you’re not looking for.

Being Prepared Can Be the Key to Finding that Superstar Employee

Perseverance

“Doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.” It is all about how you press on and keep going no matter what challenges you have to face.

Be Apart of Your Community, Isolation is Dangerous

The people you surround yourself with are going to have the most impact on you. They can see what you are blind to, where you need help, and have faith in you. You can succeed and keep pressing on and having the right people around you will give you that motivation.

To Be A Great Leader You Need to Know What Makes You Preserve
