So many trainers are in a place where they are working their asses off to try and make their businesses sustainable and are having to work harder and harder simply to run their businesses in a way that provide the life they want and need.
And it can be frustrating, overwhelming, scary af and feel almost impossible to change.
I've got you. Join a past client, phenomenal dog trainer and all round stellar human being Jamie Shellington and me in our recorded chat about the problems with a traditional dog training business model (if you rely on private sessions, group classes or board and trains as your business model, then this is for you) as well as what to do instead.
No dog trainer I've ever met has gotten into the industry because they want to run a business.
It's about helping people and their dogs.
BUT in order to do that, you have to be able to run your business in a sustainable way that doesn't burn you the fuck out, or you aren't helping anyone.
I've put together a free guide to help you figure out where you need to be focusing in order to build a sustainable, scalable business that provides the life you need while helping the people and dogs you want.
The dog training industry is unregulated, we know that. And that causes a lot of issues.
One of the biggest issues though, is how many trainers get sucked into shit slinging, threatening, shaming, name calling and attacking other people in the name of "making a difference".
Well, that doesn't really make a difference, in fact it makes things so much worse in so many ways.
So let's talk about it. Let's talk about:
1) How to best talk about the things that matter to us so that it actually effects change rather than becomes a fight (i.e how to be part of the solution, not part of the problem);
2) How to respond (and protect ourselves) when people are attacking and shit slinging;
3) How to protect your mental and emotional energy when having these hard conversations.
