    Isolation - Marci Kirk, DVM

    You are not alone; it just feels that way.
     
    Have you ever received a complaint that undermined your confidence? Ever gotten a bad review that made you doubt your skill? It's a terrible experience, isn't it? 
     
    Complaints are a common occurrence these days. And in most cases, the complaint says more about the complainer than the complainee. But when you're the focus on the compliant, it's scary, unsettling, and, often, lonely. 
     
    In this episode, Marci Kirk, DVM, shares her experience with a Board licensure complaint and how developing the courage to share her experience made the whole situation better.
     
    Community is a big piece of resilience. Finding your people--the ones who will cheer your wins and remind you of your strength when you struggle--is key. There's incredible power in working together. Great groups make it easier for each person to make changes and grow. 
     
    If you are a pet pro looking for a safe, supportive community that will help you grow into your best self, check out the Positive Changes small-group coaching program. You are not alone. Together we are stronger. https://colleenpelar.com/positive-changes

    Relationships - Laurie Williams, CPDT-KA, CPT CDTI

    Relationships - Laurie Williams, CPDT-KA, CPT CDTI

    "You love dogs. I love dogs. Let's talk about that."
    There's incredible power in finding common ground and using that to build a foundation for growth.
    Laurie Williams, owner of Pup N' Iron Canine Enrichment Center, joined me to talk about the power of relationships for improving results. She shared her ideas of how pet professionals can improve their communication with clients--and also with other pet professionals.
    What would the world look like if we put the same care and attention toward our fellow humans as we give to animals?
    It requires effort and intention, but the benefits are profound.You'll get new ideas, fresh perspectives, and a healthy dose of reality when you spend time truly connecting with others. ​
    You win. They win. We all win. Together.

    Spirituality - Laura Dorfman, CPDT-KA, PMCT, and Leslie McDevitt, MLA, CPDT-KA, CDBC,

    THERE'S NO LIMIT ON COMPASSION ... This is the recording of a live interview recorded on May 21, 2020. It predates George Floyd's death and the dramatic events that have followed. And yet the theme and discussion are timely and resonate deeply in this moment.
    Laura Dorfman, CPDT-KA, PMCT, and Leslie McDevitt, MLA, CPDT-KA, CDBC, are both meditation leaders and I invited them to discuss the broad concept of spirituality from a non-religious perspective.
    They shared thoughts about how having a sense of connection to others, to the world at large, to nature, to movement, to life allows you to bear witness, be present, and help ease the pain of others while simultaneously allowing you to experience greater peace and joy. https://colleenpelar.com/78

    Beginnings - Ali Evanson, KPA, CDTI

    Beginnings - Ali Evanson, KPA, CDTI

    Who better to give advice on beginnings than a beginner?
    Just a year ago, Ali Evanson started her dog training business, I Got This Sit.
    Many things have changed since then, and now, like the rest of us, Ali is working to adapt and begin anew.
    Beginnings ask you to imagine a new future and then commit to making it the best it can possibly be.
    Often it’s scary.
    Okay, usually it’s scary to begin something new.
    You can’t control the outcome. There are no guarantees. But when you’re clear about what you want, you’ll find your personal balance of control and acceptance. 
    You’ll feel empowered to move forward and take empowered action.
    What helps you feel ready to begin, ready to take action, ready to move toward your goals?
