Are you ready to hear my number one pet sitting business secret?
It’s something available to anyone starting a pet sitting business and was the one thing I did that really boosted my business and got me to where I am today.
So, if you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know that at the beginning of my business journey I was pretty miserable.
Working around the clock for clients that I hated, I almost quit. In fact, I almost went into pharmaceutical sales!
After having many long conversations with my husband and my parents, I decided not to quit but to go all-in.
A business coach is like a roadmap to success
Almost miraculously, just as I’d made that decision this person stepped into my life out of nowhere.
Her name is Fabienne Fredrickson, a business coach who came to speak at a pet sitting conference in Philadelphia.
Immediately I thought. “This is who I want to work with. I want to hire this woman to teach me how to have a successful business.”
I came home and told my husband that this is what I’m going to do. I’m going to hire somebody that has the business results that I want in my life. I need someone to teach me what it was that I didn’t know.
And he said, “All right, well that sounds great. How much is it?”
I think back then the program cost $15,000 and he about had a heart attack.
I don’t blame him, he didn’t know about business coaching or business building and it was a lot of money.
Finally, after discussing it long and hard, he said, “Fine, I believe in you. I trust you. But the deal is whatever she tells you to do, that is what you have to do. Every last thing she tells you to do.”
And I did. I joined the program, I learned, I implemented, and I got results.
Back then there wasn’t a pet sitting business-specific coach so I went with a general business coach. But she taught me all about marketing, all about ideal clients, and attracting your ideal clients.
She taught me all about systems and processes and how to have a website that converts. She taught me all about automation. I listened. I learned. And then most importantly, I took action, and in one year I increased my business by 100%. It was a big year.
The $15,000 investment was absolutely worth it.
Make an investment in your future
The key was I hired somebody that had the results in their business and in their life that I wanted, and that could show me what to do.
It gave me a shortcut to success.
And that’s my number one pet sitting business secret. Hire yourself a business coach, whether it’s pet sitting specific, pet business specific or somebody else.
So, my advice is to find somebody that you connect with. Find somebody that you trust. Find somebody to show you the way and give you a shortcut. Without a roadmap you can spend a lot of years spinning your wheels, not making enough money, wasting your time, wasting your freedom when you should be making money, enjoying your life.
