    Getting In Control of the Financial Numbers In Your Business with Jamie Trull

     

    Jamie Trull is a Financial Literacy Coach and Profit Strategist. She’s fired up about helping small business owners overcome the overwhelm and anxiety of business finances.

    After leaving the corporate world in favor of a more balanced life. Jamie founded her Virtual CFO company, Balance CFO LLC. and quickly realized that there was an educational void for smaller business owners and self-employed individuals when it came to financial knowledge.

    She pivoted her business to teaching Financial Literacy to help fill that void. Jamie helps entrepreneurs maximize their profit and feel more confident about the numbers side of their businesses. 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!

     

    What do you do when you don’t know how to get your numbers, what they mean, or how to make decisions in this 2020 climate?

     

    Biggest Takeaway You Don’t Want To Miss:



    * Finances can be exciting and fun. It’s not just about taxes or bookkeeping, it’s about making strategic decisions to put your business in a trajectory to really succeed. This way, you can pay yourself more money which is the main goal of a business.

    * How do you keep your business up and running so that you don’t have to go out of business because of Covid? The ones that pivoted blew their businesses upwards, there is still money to be made in this situation. You just need to be comfortable in the uncomfortable, you just need to figure out how to bring in revenue in maybe a different way than what you did before.

    * You should have a smart business strategy. Having said this, we all need to be focusing on strategy and then finding those supplemental ways that we can help ourselves through these difficult times but knowing we got to get back on our feet.

    How can your business pivot?

     

    Biggest Takeaway You Don’t Want To Miss:



    * For some businesses, it’s not just a 1 or 2-degree shift, sometimes it has to be a 90-degree shift in what you’re doing. Or maybe, you just need to be creative.

    * Think outside of the little box of how do you do that one thing which is solving the core problem. But first, you need to figure out what’s the problem. Business owners tend to stay on a surface without asking enough questions.

    * It’s all about where you put your energy and focus. Also, marketing to your audience in a unique and more engaging way – listen to Byron!

    Joe Latona 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.

    Joe has a deep understanding of the pet care industry. For Joe, the only thing better than walking a dog is improving and growing dog walking teams. His greatest career accomplishment occurred in 2018 when the team he built in Chicago performed over 60,000 individual dog walks.

    WalkerScout was inspired by Joe’s time with RPO in the airline industry, as well as his success and passion for working as a hiring manager at Windy City Dog Walkers in Chicago.  Joe saw the opportunity to better serve the pet care industry by creating the first national dog walking RPO. In 2019, Joe began hiring for growing businesses in Illinois, California, Washington, and New York.

     

    How To Have Awesome Employees For Your Dog Walking Business

Industry Leader

No matter how big my company gets, I am still picking up very useful advice from Bella. She clearly puts in a lot of effort to stay current with an ever-changing industry. She gives away mountains of information for free which I know is greatly appreciated by all who follow her.

I think because she had her own pet care business that she understands that we are all time pressed and tired. She prioritizes her advice with that fully in mind.

Thanks for everything Bella. We appreciate you.

Keeping It Fresh & REAL For The Pet Industry

Bella & her podcast is pretty freaking awesome. The straight-up truth, her guests, and tough love is refreshing, especially in the pet biz industry. She's an OG of the pet biz coaches.

Keep rocking Bella and keeping it real AF.

Prepare to be motivated...

This podcast is so relevant and inspiring. I started skipping around and ended up going back and listening to every episode, even if I didn’t feel like it was applicable to me, it still was!!! Nuggets of gold everywhere. Bella and this podcast have made me feel like I can achieve anything and I’ve seen changes in my business through items that I have applied in this podcast! Definitely not for you if you want to walk lazily through life or be laxed about things. Prepare to be motivated and encouraged! Thank you for this.
