    #113 Which Breed are You? Using quizzes in your pet business with Josh Haynam from Interact

    I have spent time in previous podcasts talking about using lead magnets and getting some hype built around your pet business. 

    Using quizzes can be a super-fun way to get your business noticed in a noisy space.



    In this episode I am talking with Josh Haynam, founder of Interact, the leader in online quiz generation. 



    Here are some links mentioned in this podcast:



    A quiz I JUST created by JUST entering my website! It hasn't been fluffed up...just straight from their AI generation tool! 🤩 HERE IT IS



    That "perfect podcast playlist" one that I mentioned from their AI generation tool. Also not fluffed up, but I want you to see how fun this is! HERE IT IS



    Of course here are my real ones that I use in my business

    #112 BE UNPRODUCTIVE with Morgan Weber

    #112 BE UNPRODUCTIVE with Morgan Weber

    Be Unproductive? 🤣



    Pretty much what I thought when I heard Morgan present at the Florida Pet Services Association conference in August.



    Then I though about it. Do you have an issue just sitting quietly with yourself? Do you have a hobby? Do you always have an urge to check your phone notifications?



    I am not sure when I have ever just been present and "unproductive". I am constantly thinking about a new initiative or tweak. When I go to dinner the conversation frequently wanders to business. Do I try to just be? Of course I do! But it is challenging.



    In this podcast I started as a part of the Revenue Streams Series talking about her Memory Flame Candles business and her husband's aquarium maintenance business...but we soon wandered into some of the deeper aspects of how difficult it can be to take a step back.

    #111 Bobby Klinck: Harvard Law School in Your Back Pocket

    #111 Bobby Klinck: Harvard Law School in Your Back Pocket

    If you admire a no-b******t kinda guy that won't use his prestigious Harvard law degree to go into politics because he has a penchant for the truth and calling it as it is...



    meet Bobby Klinck - my new dog loving friend who can help you shore up your business legal needs AND get a glimpse into how you can expand into online services while doing the CYA two-step.



    All with a healthy dose of self-deprecation, a wicked sense of humor, and a penchant for throwing some great 80s and 90s references 🙌



    In this podcast I talk with him about legal risks we might see in our pet businesses and especially if we are in the online space (like, aren't we all?). I personally bank on his legal templates and am SO excited that he is releasing his new Plainly Legal software so we can all get back to business and let someone else handle the legal stuff.



    RIGHT NOW he is hosting his "Legal Is Not A Dirty Word" event where you can get a preview and access tools to CYA right now.
