    Ep # 111 Doing Less

    Most of the humans I know are not human BEINGS but human DOINGS. They are running from work to errands to responsibilities/obligations and feeling exhausted. And it's no wonder!

    Working with animals can be intense. It requires a lot of your physical, mental and emotional energy. And while compassion fatigue is complex, what increases your susceptibility is neglecting your own need for slowing down and creating some "white space" in your life.

    Ep# 109 The Other Cost of Caring with Suzanne Cannon

    Ep# 109 The Other Cost of Caring with Suzanne Cannon

    Compassion fatigue is often coined the "cost of caring" because of the impact that witnessing others in pain or distress has on the caregiver.

    But there's another "cost of caring" related to veterinary medicine and animal welfare work and that is the financial limitations of the pet owner.
    Are there solutions? You bet! And today's guest, Suzanne Cannon Co-Founder of VetBilling and I talk all about it.

    Ep#108 Time Mastery

    What is your relationship with time? A love/hate one? Or a peaceful one? Do you feel you have enough time to do what you want or are you like most people who feel time is the enemy and you're always failing?

    Let's consider a new approach!

    In this episode I'll share:
    -how NOT to talk about time
    -how your brain is like an arsonist and how that gets in your way
    -my own process for mastering the 24 hour day
    -why you shouldn't ever say "I don't have time"

    Ep #107 How Emotional Intelligence Helps You Help Animals

    Ep #107 How Emotional Intelligence Helps You Help Animals

    In the last episode I talked about Stage 1 and 2 or Emotional Intelligence (EQ): Self-awareness and self-management of your emotions.

    This episode is about Stage 3 and 4, social awareness (be aware of what others are feeling and needing) and relationship management (bringing together your awareness of your own emotions and those of others to create productive relationships).

    Working with animals requires working with people.

    Working with people requires EQ.
