    Episode 300: 11 Mindset Hacks To Take Your Business To The Next Level

    Your mindset is going to get you everywhere or keep you exactly where you are at. As we publish this 300th episode, I am talking to you from my heart, as I always do on the milestone episodes. This time is it all about what you are saying in your own head. HOW to scale this business is the easy part. It is the MINDSET that is the tough part. When “bad” things happen, or you “fail” what is your reaction or response? Is it something that will turn it into a positive that you can stand strong on or something that holds you down and prevents you from growth and momentum? Today, I am going to give you 11 Mindset Hacks to take you to the next level. These are all ones I have used myself. I have been posting them weekly on my Instagram, as I know some of you save them for inspiring quotes. It is my hope that this episode makes you uncomfortable enough to challenge your thinking so you can think clear enough to push to your next goal. Thank you for listening to 300 episodes.

    Recommendations







    Shifting your business mindset can be one of the greatest tools to achieving success in your business. I have brought 300 episodes to you filled with information on how to hire, generate more sales, and even how to choose your software. But if your mindset isn’t in a place of positivity, you will sink the ship with your thoughts alone. Surrounding yourself with people who help you grow rather than hinder you, sets the tone for positivity. The Mastermind group is a community of like-minded business owners cheering each other on and leaning on one another when help is needed. If you are looking for a place to grow, this might be the community you have been looking for.

    Episode 299: Is Your Pet Sitting Software Working For Or Against You?

    Jodi came to me wondering how she could get more clients. We took a look into her systems and found out that the way in which she is having people sign up was stopping the sale from happening. She was having to send UN and PW to a new user and while they were waiting for that to happen, they were finding other solutions. Her software was working against her. When you compare Jodi’s sign up to Rover, the potential new client was able to sign up quickly and check off PET CARE for their trip to Cancun and be done with it. With Jodi, they were left wondering if she received their info and what the next step was. Her software was working against her. So much, that every year in the Mastermind, we actually go through five members’ websites and sign up. We time how long it takes to sign up and if there are any spot points. There are some very popular software out there that actually STOP the sales process. Today, we are diving deep into ways that your software might be working against you. My goal is to make sure that your software is an asset to your sales process and not a liability. BTW – As I wrote these notes…. I wonder if anyone actually READS them. Will you send me an email to bella at jumpconsulting.net and let me know? Ok, onto the epsiode! 🙂

Profitable Pet Sitter

I’ve run a profitable pet sitting business for over 15 years and I still learn from Bella’s podcast. Keep them coming!

Excellent Business Owner's Mindset!

I run a podcast in a tangential business (cleaning) and met Bella at a conference. I've been listening to her podcast. Bella brings a TON of value to pet industry owners. If you are struggling to pay your bills or grow your team, make sure to plug into Bella's mindset to learn from her. I really like how bold she is to YOU. She is teaching you how to think like an owner. You will not grow to higher levels in your business until you learn to think like successful business owners.

Lifewithpaws ,
