EP023: Improving Professional
In this episode I’ll take a look at what ‘professional’ looks like when it comes to horse care…I’ll look at what I call the factory-training business model and why we need to change it…. …I’ll share a bit of my story of when I reinvented myself and how that benefitted my horses and why it’s so important that heart-centered horse professionals learn how to thrive in the horse business… not just so they can have a fulfilling sustainable and profitable life they can LOVE… but because it directly influences the quality of life of horses.
This pod is brought to you by For The Love Of The Horse: Transform Your Business. When the heart-centered professionals thrive, so do the horses. For more information on how I help people with their horse businesses go to dressagenaturally.net/professionals
