    Beginnings - Ali Evanson, KPA, CDTI

    Who better to give advice on beginnings than a beginner?
    Just a year ago, Ali Evanson started her dog training business, I Got This Sit.
    Many things have changed since then, and now, like the rest of us, Ali is working to adapt and begin anew.
    Beginnings ask you to imagine a new future and then commit to making it the best it can possibly be.
    Often it’s scary.
    Okay, usually it’s scary to begin something new.
    You can’t control the outcome. There are no guarantees. But when you’re clear about what you want, you’ll find your personal balance of control and acceptance. 
    You’ll feel empowered to move forward and take empowered action.
    What helps you feel ready to begin, ready to take action, ready to move toward your goals?

    Blursday - Finding Your Footing in Uncertain Times

    When every day feels the same, how do you find your footing? What helps you feel grounded and centered? 
    Pet professionals are caretakers. They're known for showing up in service of others, for working themselves to the point of exhaustion, and for giving until it hurts.
    This is your time to explore what really matters to you and what changes you'd like to make moving forward. https://colleenpelar.com/74

Educational, relatable and enjoyable!

I really enjoyed listening to the podcast with Dr McConnell. Hearing these two professionals discuss emotions and how they're experienced, applied to life and viewed in the dog and human world was great. As a dog professional, these types of podcasts are easy to listen to and still providing some fun educational material.

Fun perspective!

We have more in common with our dogs than we think! Love this fun perspective on personal development.
