    Episode 109. How to Deal with Pet Sit & Dog Walk Client Keys

    Episode 109. How to Deal with Pet Sit & Dog Walk Client Keys

    Val Goren is an Atlanta-based pet sitter and dog walker who has a quickly growing pet sitting and dog walking business. Like many pet pros who provide home-based pet services, Val is having challenges managing the vast amount of client keys she and her staff are responsible for.



    In this episode you’ll hear how she can best organize and manage the many client keys as well as how to manage her visit and walk schedule and raise her rates so she’s able to pay herself and her staff in an appropriate way, especially when gas prices are high.



    Val also has questions about how best to ensure staff aren’t late to client meet-and-greets, pet sit visits and dog walks. She also has questions about how best to train her pet sitters and dog walkers so her staff reflect the high standards Val herself does when she is providing the service.

    Episode 107. How to Run a Pet Business When You Have a 9-5 Job or Another Business

    Episode 107. How to Run a Pet Business When You Have a 9-5 Job or Another Business

    Marie has a dog products business on Etsy and she also wants to start a service-based pet sitting and dog walking business. She’s wondering how to go about creating a service-based business in addition to her existing dog products business.



    Marie has a lot of questions about the startup process including how to start her dog walking and pet sitting business while still working her weekday job, if it’s even possible to start that business and keep her job and how to find a great administration assistant to do the tedious and confusing tasks. She’s also confused about what client newsletter system would be best for her two very different businesses.

    Episode 106. Shoestring Budget Marketing for Pet Business Owners

    Episode 106. Shoestring Budget Marketing for Pet Business Owners

    Stephanie is a new dog trainer who needs help getting clients quickly in her dog training business. Like many pet professionals who are on a shoestring budget, she’s unsure what marketing makes the most sense to invest in right now, given the many advertising options available.



    As a new business owner, Stephanie is also feeling overwhelmed by all the tasks she feels like she should be doing but doesn’t know where would be best to put her limited attention, time and energy. She’d also like to specialize in “bully breeds” but isn’t sure if narrowing her niche would be a good route to take as a new business owner.

    Episode 104. Create a Solid Business Foundation

    Episode 104. Create a Solid Business Foundation

    Even if you’ve had your pet business for years, there may be parts of your business that are not quite solid. When solidity is created in the areas of business that require it, there’s so much more that’s possible in your business (and in your personal life).



    Today’s coaching client is Maryann Berry, a new pet sitter and dog walker who lives in San Diego. She is very excited to launch her new business and just got her first client. Maryann wants to set up her business the right way, so today I’m helping her do that.



    Regardless of whether you’ve been in business for many years or are just getting started, you’ll likely get something of substance out of this episode as we cover a wide range of topics within this podcast coaching session.

The right next steps

I have had the pleasure of being coached by Kristin. I was stuck for years on how to get to the next level of my profession. It seemed impossible to find the time to write my book among the daily pressures of running my business. Because Kristin is so deeply perceptive and she has common sense, whenever I meet with her, the impossible becomes possible. She gave me ideas on how I could get my book written NOW. I took these ideas and…I am about to edit the first chapter draft from my assistant writer! She is an incredible resource who will inspire you and help you feel more connected to your own strengths and what you do in the world. I recommend Kristin’s coaching wholeheartedly.

Grateful to have the opportunity to be coached

I am very grateful to have had an opportunity to be coached on Kristin‘s podcast. I am in the early stages of starting my business and Kristin‘s advice is helping me stay in action and giving me the confidence to know that I am laying a foundation for a successful future!

Bonmartha ,

Insightful and transformative coaching!

I’m a small business owner, NOT pet related, but in listening to Kristin’s podcast I have gleaned many useful tips and ideas that support what I do. So grateful for her kindness, wisdom and practical help that covers the whole person, not just the business. You can tell she cares deeply for her clients and that her strength to serve springs from the joy gets in helping others thrive. Thank you Kristin! Karma Brazell, LCCE, CLD Birth Class Anywhere
