    How the 90/10 Rule Can Get Your Dog Walking Business Back On Track

    Do you feel like content marketing is taking over your business? Like you have to consistently be posting on every social media platform possible and creating all the content you can in order to properly market and grow your business?

    Don’t stress!

    Today, I brought on Andrew and Pete to tell you how the 90/10 rule can get your dog walking business back on track!



    Andrew and Pete, international keynote speakers, authors and YouTubers, are the multi award winning fun business duo who help small business owners scale their business so they can stop swapping time for money.

    Biggest Take Away You Don’t Want To Miss

    If you try to post on all aspects of content marketing then you are doing none of them remarkably well. Instead, pick one aspect of marketing and do that one thing remarkably well. In doing so, you will be known for that aspect and will no longer be wasting your time on the other platforms that aren’t performing well for you. Follow your data, find out what works best for you and your business and spend 90% of your time there and 10% experimenting elsewhere.

    In following the 90/10 rule, you are guaranteed to get your dog walking business back on track.

    Episode 179: 2020 Predictions in Your Pet Business

    Episode 179: 2020 Predictions in Your Pet Business

    As a coach in the Pet Industry, I have the opportunity to work with pet businesses from all over the world at all different stages of their business. Due to this, I’m able to see trends that spread from the starter businesses to the six-figure businesses and identify what trends are being used to help their business growth and what’s simply not working. Thus, every year I write my yearly predictions leading me to the 2020 predictions in your pet business.



    Biggest Take Away You Don’t Want To Miss

    In order to excel in your business, you need to know the 2020 predictions for your pet business. With businesses such as Rover and Wag not going anywhere, the sooner you’re able to adapt, the better. Adapting can mean making educated business investments, getting smarter with technology, utilizing dark social or simply fixing your mindset.

    * Using Rover to Your Advantage [3:20]

    Episode 178: How to Get Your Pet Business in the Media

    Episode 178: How to Get Your Pet Business in the Media

    We talk a lot about social media presence and making your business known on the media. However, we don’t often get the chance to talk about how to get your pet business in the media such as newspapers, magazines or even on TV.

    To teach us how to get in the media I’ve brought on Rachel Spencer, a journalist, and blogger for the Pet Industry who helps pet businesses create content and promote their work in the media. 



    Biggest Take Away You Don’t Want To Miss

    When pet businesses are everywhere and companies like Rover and Wag are soaring with popularity, getting your business out there and validated as credible, has never been more important. If someone is searching for a dog walker or pet sitter, you want to be the business that comes up on google. A good way to guarantee you show up first is by having media coverage. Thus, providing you with credibility and building trust in your business.

    * What kind of stories do journalists like to get from pet businesses? [6:10]

    Episode 177: Staying Compliant with Staff In Your Pet Business – The Best Kept Resource!

    Episode 177: Staying Compliant with Staff In Your Pet Business – The Best Kept Resource!

    Today I want to share with you the best-kept resource in staying compliant with staff in your pet business. The Pet Industry Coalition is an organization dedicated to educating and advocating for the regulation and compliance of the Pet Industry. To tell you all about it, I’ve brought on two of the four co-founders, Lauren Cora and Katie Pape.



    Lauren is the owner of Dogs Deserve It, a dog walking company based out of Chicago, IL. Dogs Deserve It recently celebrated 10 years of service and has over 55 employees.



    Similarly, Katie’s business Windy City Paws, is located in Chicago and has been in business for 10 years now. Katie has over 75 employees.

     

    Biggest Take Away You Don’t Want To Miss

    With the pet industry being a rather unregulated business, staying compliant with staff in your pet business can be difficult. Thus, the Pet Industry Coalition was developed. Through the coalition they work to ensure businesses are aware of the differences between independent contractors and employees, as well as, the consequences of misclassifying staff.

    * The start of the Pet Industry Coalition [5:02]

    * Mission of the coalition and who it’s for [8:18]

    * The difference between an employee and an independent contractor [9:20]

    Episode 176: Planning for Your Dog Walking Business in 2020

    Episode 176: Planning for Your Dog Walking Business in 2020

    I know with being six days away from Christmas that planning for your dog walking business in 2020 is probably the last thing on your mind. However, I strategically posted this before Christmas so that you have time to get your thoughts flowing.

    I want to help you come up with a plan to grow and exceed your expectations for business planning in 2020.

     





    Biggest Take Away You Don’t Want To Miss

    There’s a major difference between planning for your dog walking business and goal setting. Where making plans can include a to do list that never stops growing, setting goals are concrete, quantifiable and specific. When you set a goal you need to give yourself an end date and start breaking down the processes necessary to get there.

    Most importantly, you need to hold yourself accountable or get an accountability partner that can.

    Show Highlights



    * 90 Day Goals [4:20]

    * 30 Day Goals [5:50]

    * Accountability [8:00]

    * What’s so different about 2020? [9:10]

    * Where to begin [10:38]

    Episode 175: How Your Pet Business Systems Save Your Profit

    Episode 175: How Your Pet Business Systems Save Your Profit

    I want you to think of all of your pet business systems. Now, think about a time where maybe you told your staff to do something and gave them all of the direction needed to do it but for some reason, they didn’t do what you wanted them to do. Do you know what caused the problem?

    Today I brought on a very special guest, Liz Illg, to share the importance of systems and processes for your pet business.

    Liz is the Owner of Puff & Fluff Grooming and Pet Sitting with five locations in Phoenix area. Not only has Liz turned her passion for animals into a thriving business, she is an expert when it comes to creating an environment of growth for your business as well. In fact, as an Operational Strategist, Liz specializes in working with small business owners and entrepreneurs. She can assist with everything from streamlining systems to creating manageable training and operational manuals. Liz received her Bachelor’s in Business from Arizona State University and her Master’s in Education from Northern Arizona University.



    Biggest Take Away You Don’t Want To Miss

    If you’re ever going to grow your business, you need more than an Employee Handbook and Training manual. You need business systems and processes. You need a step by step how-to on how to complete each individual tasks that you do every day. It’s not as easy as telling your staff to do something. In order for it to be done correctly and the way you want it, you need to tell them exactly how you want it done.

    You want to engage your employees and feed into them.

    * How Liz was able to expand her business from 1 storefront to 5 [2:15]

    * Switching your mindset from blaming others to recognizing your own downfalls [7:20]

Joycezapata ,

Thank you Bella!

OMG this is so awesome. I’m just starting my own business as a full time pet sitter and I think this podcast was a a sign sent from heaven. I can’t describe how much I’ve learned. It was perfect timing and Bella is so nice and pleasant to hear and the themes that she uses in her conversation are what we really need the most: make our businesses PAWSOMES!
So glad that I could find this just in time and Bella one million times thank you. You’re and expert on the field and I know there aren’t so much out there. Thanks for sharing and let’s hope to see you soon in the program 🐶😻

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.
