3 Daily Habit to Attract More Abundance Into Your Life

3 Daily Habits to Attract More Abundance Into Your Life

I’m going to open up and let you guys know some of these strategies that I have done and that I still do that have attracted great abundance into my life. This year, I will be talking a lot about woo woo stuff because that’s part of who I am. I’m all about tangible business strategy, but I’m also very spiritual.

Today are the three daily habits to attract more abundance into your life.

Declutter.

You need to create more space in your physical environment to attract more abundance. If every drawer is stuffed and filled, there’s no room for anything else. Getting into the daily habit of cleaning your desk and cleaning out your physical space is one of the easiest ways to attract new abundance into your life.

Write your goals out on cards.

3 Daily Habit to Attract More Abundance Into Your Life

 

I want you to write them as if they already happened, and I want you to be grateful for them. For example, I am so happy and grateful that I have created consistent $10,000 months in my business. Thank you, God. Thank you, universe. Thank you, Buddha.

This, my friends, is my first set of goal cards that I wrote in 2011 that my coach told me to do. You choose the word that you use and that you connect with. You’re going to write them down on your cards, and then you will read them several times a day. The idea here is that we are imprinting them on our subconscious mind. We’re trying to reprogram your subconscious mind for abundance. Every single thing in this deck has come true.

I’m not even joking. I was like reading through. I’m like, “Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh.” Amazing. Do this. All right. Write them down. Say them over and over again every single day.

Track every bit of money that comes into your life every day.

Open up an Excel spreadsheet or a Google sheet, and I want you to write every deposit that hits your bank account. If somebody gives you a bottle of wine, I want you to count the value. So, say this is like, okay, that’s $20. If someone offers you to see a concert, the value of the ticket. If you find $2 on the road, I found $40 in the airport the other day. I would put that on my spreadsheet. So, the idea here is what you track grows. It is a universal law.

Get in the habit of doing this every day and watch the abundance flow into your life.

The Fear Around Building Referral Partnerships

The Fear Around Building Referral Partnerships

Today I want to talk about the fear that most of us have when going out and building pet sitting business relationships with strategic alliances or referral partners.

First, a strategic Alliance is somebody that serves the same target market as you do but offers a different service. Our referral partner doesn’t necessarily have to be in the pet industry but is another business or person you have a partnership with because you guys are referring business back and forth.

This was a major hot topic in my mastermind this week because we talked all about marketing, and a piece of that is getting out from behind your computer, getting cookies, getting cupcakes, getting a pizza, getting bagels, whichever you choose, and going in and making relationships with these business owners.

pet sitting business referrals

 

When we first start talking about this, most of my students feel they’re crippled in fear, and I don’t want to discount that fear because I know I certainly felt it. My heart used to beat like crazy. I would start sweating when I would go in. But here’s the bottom line. You get to choose what this means to you.

This means some people may say, “Oh, you know what? We’re good. We already have a pet sitter that we refer, but thanks for stopping by.” Okay, great. Thank you. It doesn’t mean anything about you or your pet sitting business. It has nothing to do with your self-worth. You don’t seem to have an energetic connection with that business or with that person. That’s fine.

Then the next business you go into will be like, “Oh my gosh, you’re exactly what my clients are looking for. I would love to put out your cards. And thank you so much for the cookies, and here’s the best way to refer us.” You’re going to continue fostering that relationship with them over time. But you have to get out of the fear and do it anyhow.

One of my students this week had a big win. She had these awesome cupcakes made from her grocery with little paw prints. She went out, made awesome connections, and started getting clients.

So my homework assignment for you today is to stretch yourself. Step out of your comfort zone. Write down a list of people you would like to create relationships with and go out and meet with them. I do have a script. I don’t want you guys to overthink this or go in robotically, but if you need a script to help you, like what to say when you go out, go to messagecolleen.com and type in the word script in the messenger chat. And I’m going to shoot you over that script to give you an idea and a framework of what you can say.

Don’t make it mean anything about you if they decide they don’t want to be a referral partner with you. Some people will want to, some people won’t, and either is okay. It doesn’t mean anything about you or your pet sitting business.

Hey there, Newbie Pet Sitter! Are you feeling stuck or overwhelmed with starting your pet sitting business? Fret no longer, my friend. I’ve got ya covered!

Don't Let the Fear of Online Trolls Hold you Back

Don’t Let the Fear of Online Trolls Hold you Back

Today, our question comes from a member of my Scholars group, and she wrote, “I’m curious how and if you respond when your pet sitting company is recommended for service in local Facebook groups. Do you comment on the person who recommended your service or comment separately? I hesitate to throw our name out there in these groups if we haven’t been mentioned since some people are not so nice.”

This comes down to fear of judgment, which we all have.

My answer to her was to comment on the person who referred you, comment separately, and DM the person looking for a fantastic sitter. Be proud of your service.

Don't Let the Fear of Online Trolls Hold you Back


Don’t let some trolls that are sitting behind their computers, who may say something negative about you, hold you back from getting your message out to the people that need you most.

When you respond, something you can offer is a PDF download of all the amazing testimonials that your clients have given your pet sitting company, or you can give them a high-value coupon. There are many cool ways to respond in these instances, but again, do not let fear of judgment hold you back from being so proud of your service and what you have to offer.

2 Reasons Why Problems in Your Dog Walking & Pet Sitting Business Should be Celebrated

2 Reasons Why Problems in Your Dog Walking & Pet Sitting Business Should be Celebrated

I was on TikTok the other night, and I came across a quote that made me so happy. It reads, “Happiness is not the absence of problems, it’s the ability to deal with them.” Steve Maraboli. I’m not quite sure who Steve is, but it got me thinking about my life and my dog walking business, and how I have learned to deal with problems because I used to get all stressed out and freaked out when a sitter would mess up, or I would mess up, or a customer leave a bad review.

But as I’ve learned, and as the business has grown, all of these problems have only created a better business and helped me grow as a human being.

I want to talk about the two reasons why problems need to be celebrated.

Problems reveal the ways that your business can grow.

They are showing you something. For example, you have more customers than team members. Awesome. You need to find more pet sitters and build better hiring systems. This means that you’re growing. That’s a good thing.

Two, you get a bad customer complaint posted on the internet, posted on Google My Business, posted on Yelp. Awesome. Now you can drive your team to serve your customers more effectively. At the same time, you build your marketing to counter the effect of the complaint and systemize how you will deal with any negative reviews that pop up because they’re going to happen. And that is okay. But guess what? The problem occurred and now you’ve created this new system. Good. It means you’re growing.

Lastly, you have an employee that isn’t working out. Awesome. Now you have a better understanding of the type of people you want to work with. And you’re going to create an attraction system on where to find these people. This is a good thing, and this is how you’re going to grow a better team.

You are building a better dog walking business.

Every problem is like a cleanse for your business. It just takes you to the next level. You will have to solve every problem that you face and then come up with a system to avoid having the same problem happen again in the future.

This is what I’ve done over 20 years of my career in the pet sitting industry. I didn’t know what I was doing when problems first happened. Now, everything is systematized to a T, and my team and my managers know how to deal with everything in a great, systematized way. It just takes all the stress off.

I’m not saying I’m without problems. I have a business and I’m dealing with human beings. Problems still arise, but now I’ve grown as a leader. I’ve grown as a business owner that I don’t freak out when these things happen. I try to look at it through the lens of this happening for me and not to me, and it will create an even better business.

How I get Pet Sitters Extraordinary Results in Their Businesses

How I get Pet Sitters Extraordinary Results in Their Businesses

I want to talk about how it is that I get pet sitters extraordinary results in their businesses.

I’m particular with who I work with.

I teach pet sitting business owners how to launch, grow, and multiply their businesses. I’m not teaching anybody in the pet industry. I’m teaching specifically pet sitters. I’m not teaching plumbers. I’m not teaching housekeepers.

I am a pet sitter. That is what my career is in. I’ve created amazing results with my own business. That is why I want to help other people in the same career as I am.

Business Strategy. I work from 2 proven frameworks.

I work from two proven frameworks, my Launch & Grow framework, which gets my students to 3K months. Then, we go over to my Multiply framework, which is getting my students to 10K months.

Each of the frameworks has step-by-step instructions on how they will get results. Once those frameworks are implemented, the result is 3K, and then the result is 10K or more, which compounds over time. It’s a proven step-by-step system.

I’m not just randomly hopping on calls with people saying, “Okay, try this, try that.” No. There is a specific set of instructions. There is a specific curriculum.

I provide all the tools and templates to make the process easy.

All of the emails, automation, sales, and hiring funnels, all of the manuals and systems, everything is white label so that pet sitters can take my logo off, put their logo on, and put it into action. There’s no reason for them to recreate anything.

Yes, I want them to spin my materials, but I make it nice and easy and say, “Hey, this is what I use in my business, and it works, and you can use it too.”

How I get Pet Sitters Extraordinary Results in Their Businesses


Support that includes mindset coaching.

Lastly is the support. I love my students as if they are part of my own family, and I will love them and support them in any way possible. I also like to work on their mindset, which is an added thing. I’ve learned over the years of coaching, that a lot of times, the limitations that people come up against are all in their minds.

As I said, I will love and support you if you ever become my student. Still, I’m never going to argue for your limitations because I know what is possible for you on the other side of comfort, stepping out of your comfort zone, learning new things, and implementing. I know what you can achieve. So I work a lot around mindset, digging deep into the stories that we all tell ourselves that keep us stuck.

First, I only work with pet sitters. Second, I teach from proven frameworks. Third, I give all of the tools and templates to my students to make them easy to implement. And lastly, I support them through coaching support and helping with their mindset blocks. So those are the four ways I help my students get results—specifically, a pet sitting business coach.

Hey there, Newbie Pet Sitter! Are you feeling stuck or overwhelmed with starting your pet sitting business? Fret no longer, my friend. I’ve got ya covered!

The Power of Momentum

Today our topic is the power of momentum. I have been teaching pet sitting business owners how to create lucrative pet sitting careers for many years now. And the one differentiator that I see between those who can produce the results they want and those who aren’t is the ability to generate momentum for themselves.

These people figure out how to get motivated, stay motivated, persevere, and get things done even when they don’t want to. I’m here to tell you that your brain is not wired to want to get things done. Our brains are wired to keep us nice and warm and cozy in our houses to watch Netflix, eat, and search out comfort.

The Power of Momentum

 

When you start doing something new and start building your pet sitting businesses and taking action, your brain’s like, whoa, hold the phone. Hold on. Don’t do this. Go back to what you were doing before because that’s safe. The people who keep moving forward and understand that this is resistance they have to move through, and they find ways to generate that motivation. These are the people who get results in their business.

In my Multiply Mastermind program, we have a book club. This month our book was The 5 Second Rule Mel Robbins. In this book, she teaches a brain hack that you can do when you start feeling this resistance come into play.

The 5 Second Rule

She says when you start hearing that negative self-talk, and it’s saying, hey, don’t do the business building work today. Hey, don’t work out today. Hey, don’t eat that healthy food; eat something much yummier. You can count down five, four, three, two, one, go, and you have to move your body.

This is a simple brain hack that you can implement in your life to start moving through that resistance and generating that momentum so that you can create the results in your business that you want.

The Mindset that is Keeping Most Pet Sitters and Dog Walkers Stuck

The Mindset that is Keeping Most Pet Sitting Business Owners Stuck

Today our topic is the mindset keeping most pet sitting business owners stuck. I have the honor every week of speaking to pet sitters from all walks of life. People in the United States, people in other countries, people at all different levels in their business, and one common theme that I have identified is keeping pet sitters stuck came across in an application on my desk.

I had a session with the pet sitter yesterday, and she just put it so perfectly on her application, where it says, what are the biggest obstacles stopping you from taking your business to the next level? This business owner wrote “To work all of the time because I don’t want to pay for help. And two, I don’t trust others to do an awesome job.” So what happens with this type of mindset? This business owner gets stuck working in their business. So I’m here to help shift those with a similar mindset.

The people you hire are hiring to make you money.

Your pet sitters, your team, dog walkers, and cat sitters on your dream team are generating revenue for your company. You can service so many more customers because you have that support team in place. That’s the first thing. It’s not money out the door. They’re creating more money for you.

The trust issue is a story that your brain is telling you.

It’s the story that we tell ourselves, I certainly did for many, many years, that my clients only want me to do the pet sitting. They will not want to use my service if I hire or contract the work to somebody on my team, and I don’t think they’re going to do as good of a job as me.

Here’s the bottom line, it is a story. This is a story that your brain is telling you, and your ego is telling you to keep you small, to keep you safe. I said to myself that for way too long, and it took me forever to start hiring, and I was stuck for a long time.

Many people out there will take amazing care of your client’s pets.

Pet Sitting Business Owners are often hesitant to hire support.

How you find them, you need to set up your attraction system, you need to set up your assessment system, and you need to set up an excellent onboarding system so that by the time they go out to work for you, they are going to be such valuable members of your team.

You may have some clients that say, well, you’re not going to be doing it anymore, then no, I’m not going to use your service. But I’m telling you that is such a small, small percentage. Listen, I went through it myself. Every week, I work with pet sitting business owners to tackle this mindset and make that leap into hiring.

I know they had the same experience. One, maybe two clients decide not to continue, but truth be told, most of the clients are happy for you and that you are growing your business and that you have found amazing people and sell the benefit of it. This is so great. If anybody gets sick, if an emergency happens, and a sitter gets stuck on the road, we always have a backup for you and your precious pets.

The Behaviors You Need to Make 2022 Your Best Year Yet

The Behaviors You Need to Make 2022 Your Best Year Yet

Today we are talking about the behaviors you need to make 2022 your best year yet. To create an amazing year, an amazing life, mindset is required. But without the behavior to go along with the mindset, you will not get very far.

For example, you might have total clarity on your fitness goals. You may say, “I want to lose this much weight”, but if you’re not exercising or dieting the way that you should, you’re not going to get very far with your fitness goals. The same goes for your business goals.

If you know that you want to create this much income in 2022, but you’re not showing up and doing anything to make that happen, you’re just wishfully thinking and hoping that this year’s going to be great.

Today I have defined four behaviors that you should take part in to create an amazing year.

You need to create a morning ritual.

Start every day with a morning ritual to optimize your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual wellbeing. In my Multiply Mastermind Program, we have a book club. One of my favorite books in 2021 was the Miracle Equation by Hal Elrod. He also wrote the Miracle Morning, and I have to tell you this really resonated with me and stuck with me, and I now protect my morning routine with all of my might.

For 12 years, I have had my cleaning lady come at 8:00 AM every Tuesday, and I finally told her that she needs to come later because it is interrupting my morning routine, morning practices, and morning rituals. She wasn’t happy about it, but it’s that important because it puts me in the right mindset and frame of mind to make the most out of my day.

If you haven’t read the book, it’s called the Miracle Morning, and he also wrote the Miracle Equation. You can also go to Amazon Prime and watch Miracle Morning Movie. It’s short, it’s great, but I highly suggest creating a morning ritual so that you can start your day with an optimal mindset.

Design a predetermined process that produces the desired result.

Get clear on which actions, behaviors, and routines you need to commit to and then follow through with them to reach your goals. Going back to the fitness that’s the easiest to explain, but if you know precisely that you need to work out five days a week, you need to strength training three days a week, and you need to cut out carbs, that’s your process, and that’s going to get you your result.

You need to show up and follow that process every day. The same goes with business, something I’m giving you guys one of the processes I call is the see it through strategy, and this is how I become so unbelievably productive.

Figuring out your process that you need to show up to create the results in all areas for your goals. One of my favorite tips is creating a foundational schedule, or what I like to call a model calendar, because that way, you know exactly when you are focused on every habit or process.

The Behaviors You Need to Make 2022 Your Best Year Yet


It’s what you do every day, and most people let their schedules run them. They don’t set it proactively in advance and then show up for it. That is how you will create amazing results in your business and your life.

Initiate a support system.

It could be the Pet Nanny Coach community free Facebook group. There’s a ton of Facebook groups that you can join on Facebook. It could be you decide to join a mastermind or a coaching group.

You could also get a group together and start your group, your little mastermind group. You can start a Facebook group, other business owners you know come together and start your circle. You want to be an accountability buddy. You want to create the support system around you, where somebody else holds you accountable for your behaviors. They are giving you feedback, and they are giving you support.

It is so unbelievably invaluable, and that’s why I love my Mastermind Program. I love my students. We are all there to hold each other up, celebrate with each other, and, most importantly, hold others accountable.

What are you doing this week? What three things are you doing? And then, at the end of the week, did you do them? It’s as simple as that. Try to initiate a support system, whether you create your own or join one. If you have to show up and be accountable to somebody else, you’re more likely to achieve your goals.

Seek out guidance.

Do not try to figure this out on your own. I have not learned all that I know about business.

I didn’t download it from space. I sought out teachers who have done it already, and I learned from them, modeled them, and implemented the behaviors and results.

There is absolutely no reason you should be trying to figure this out yourself, trying to recreate the wheel. Find somebody you resonate with that you look up to that has the results in their business that you want, and learn from them. You are going to save years, upon years, upon years, upon years of your time if you do this and you take the shortcut.

So, that is the four steps and behaviors that I want you to focus on in 2022. Creating your morning ritual, go check out what it is? My Miracle Morning movie on Prime Video. Two, you need to design a predetermined process that will produce the desired result. Three, initiate a support system. And four seek out guidance. And remember, guys, that every year’s ultimate purpose is to continue learning and continue growing and becoming a better version of yourself than you were before.

I’m excited for 2022 and to see what results you create and what version of yourself you create.
