    Talking Cats, Content and Creating a Caring Community With Jae and Adrienne, The Two Crazy Cat Ladies!

    Talking Cats, Content and Creating a Caring Community With Jae and Adrienne, The Two Crazy Cat Ladies!

    The cats and cittens are taking over the show this week, as I am joined LIVE from Las Vegas by Jae Kennedy and Adrienne Lefebvre, A.K.A. The Two Crazy Cat Ladies!
    Jae and Adrienne have built an amazing business around a fabulous community of cat lovers that stretches all across the world. 
    However, it's been a LONG journey to get where they are now, and in this episode you'll find out all about their origin stories, early school life and crappy jobs they did before they landed in Vegas in 2015. 
    Working with a pet supplement company, they created some amazing products for cats, which were so good they thought would sell themselves...but they didn't and bankruptcy soon followed. 
    This proved to be a crucial turning point and set the Crazy Cat Ladies them on a different path which finally led to the success they have today. 
    Tune in to discover;
    How an estranged family mentor helped Jae change professions and start her new career, in a new state.  How a business disaster casued them to stop selling products and start selling passion.  How creating a community has been key to their business success.  Why showing up authentically, in a broken, flooded house, created deeper connections with their audience.  Why Adrienne losing her job in the pandemic turned out to be a blessing in disguise and speeded up the growth of the two crazy ladies brand.  Jae and Adrienne's motto is Learn, Share, Grow, which is a beautiful sentiment, and I know you'll learn AND grow from listening to their inspiring story.

    Building an Online Training Business with James Eager

    Building an Online Training Business with James Eager

    Something a little bit different today, because I am talking to the awesome James Eager from Ebassguitar.com
    James grew up with a passion for music, and at age 18 he went to Trinity College of music to hone his craft in bass guitar and double bass. 
    He worked in the orchestra pit on some of the top shows in the West End, he taught for a couple of days a week, AND played in a band. 
    By the time James hit his 30's the band started to take off, and were doing gigs all over the world, and very lucrative high-end weddings. 
    However, this turned out to be a feast or famine business which made James reasses things and seek a more stable career with recurring revenue. 
    That led to James going back to teaching, but this time online, where he got the marketing bug, put out his first lead magnet, built an email list, sold his first program and eventually this led to his hugely succesful online empire, E-Bass Guitar. 
    James story is very similar to my own, and it's a perfect template for what dog trainers can follow to take their business online and earn recurring revenue. 
    In this podcast you will discover;
    Why perfectionism is the enemy of progress when building an online business Why, when you are an entreprenuer it's better to be resilient than brilliant  Why you're first business, is often a stepping stone to a better  business  How a business coach can help you build a better business, faster than you would on your own  Also after the podcast was finished James told me his dad owned as pet food business in the 1970's! Small world, eh?
