2-Hour Pet Business Support / Co-Working Online Group

 

 

Friday, April 3 at 11am Pacific / 2pm Eastern

This challenging time of COVID-19 is causing pet business owners to feel unstable in both their businesses and in their personal lives. The purpose of this online support / co-working group is to create a safe, loving and empowering online “home” for those of you who are pet business owners.

There’s a small fee to attend but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Email Kristin at thrive@SFPBacademy.com if it’s a hardship for you and she’ll get you in.

The intention for this group is to help you feel supported, connected, and (if you desire) to begin or complete a business project of your choosing during the 2-hour group.

Whether you’re just starting out in your pet business or you’ve had your business for years, Kristin Morrison and this online support group are here for you.

There are many kinds of pet business owners attending this from all over the world, including dog trainers, pet sitters, dog walkers, pet groomers, dog daycare owners, pet store owners and more. If you have a pet business or have recently started a pet business, you are welcome to sign up. This is an online group and you can attend from wherever you are at on the globe.

What you’ll experience: At the start of our time together, pet business coach Kristin Morrison will share for a bit so everyone can land here and be on the same page. Then, Kristin will lead the group on a short 5-minute meditation / chill out / whatever you need to call it in order to get grounded and present with yourself.

After this, there will be time for a 30-45 minute personal and/or business “check-in” from those who want to participate (1-minute maximum check-in, per person). Please note that we may not be able to get to everyone who wants to check-in due to time constraints. If you need to share your feelings or concerns about what’s happening in your business or life, that’s welcome during this portion. Or if you’d prefer to share what you will be working on during the co-working portion of the time together in order to be accountable to the group, that’s fine too during your check-in.

Please note, Kristin will not be commenting on, or coaching people during this group time. It’s an opportunity for you to share what’s going on, or what you want to work on, in a safe and loving environment - and if you’d prefer not to share, that’s fine too.

The remaining time (up to one hour) will be available for you to work on whatever business project you would like to work on (entering client data in your admin system, balancing your checkbook, asking clients for reviews so when your business picks up you'll have more reviews than you started with, or whatever you want to work on). All projects are welcome!

We’ll be on Zoom for the entire 2-hour period. You can choose to be on video or not - your choice. You’ll have the ability to share your video (or not), at any time during the 2-hour online group.

Everyone will be muted during the co-working portion. If you’d prefer to connect with those who aren’t working on projects, that’s absolutely fine. There will be an option to chat with other group participants via a text message box if you’d rather "talk" about what's going on for you and get support from each other rather than working on a project.

Q. Why is there a fee for this online support / co-working group?
This online group will be hosted on the Zoom platform, which is a large expense for Kristin, especially when there are a lot of attendees joining (the Zoom is based on the number of attendees). Also, when you pay for a class, even paying a small amount, it generally results in you actually showing up and getting more more from the class then you would if it was a no-cost class. Finally, Kristin is setting aside her time to organize and run this group. If you’d really love to attend and the amount is a hardship for you, please don’t hesitate to contact Kristin directly to discuss it. She’ll work with you to ensure you can join! Email her at: thrive@SFPBacademy.com

Q. Will the online sessions be recorded so I can watch it later?
Given the intimate nature of the check-ins and in order to create a safe place for all to share and work, this online group will not be recorded.

Q. What if I’ve had my pet business for many years. Will this still be supportive for me? Absolutely! Even if you’ve had your business for many years you’ll nearly always find daily actions you can take or ways of refining your pet business. There are many attending the online support group who have had their businesses for decades and, like you, are needing support and accountability during this time, so you won’t be alone if you’ve had your business for years. And if you’re a newbie pet business owner, you’re welcome too!
