Episode 138. Release the Overwhelm

Episode 138. Release the Overwhelm
This is Stephanie’s second coaching session. Her first session is Episode 137. If you haven’t already heard her first session, it’s recommended to listen to her first session before listening to this session.   Since the first coaching session, Stephanie has stopped spending time on social media since that took time and energy away from working on her passion project (the business she discussed in Episode 137).    She’s now only allowing herself to post on social media when she’s accomplished something as a way to be accountable instead of a way to distract herself by getting lost down the rabbit hole of social media.    As we explore what else is taking up her time and energy, we explore the three major areas of life and work right now: parenting her 5-year-old son, her dog walking business and teaching at a university.    When she thinks about adding this passion project business to her already-full schedule it’s causing her to feel very overwhelmed. So, where does she go from here? What does she need to do to step away from the overwhelm to focus on what matters most to her?   You’ll find out in this coaching session!       Visit the show notes page at: www.ProsperousPetBusiness.com/podcast138     Find out about the interactive 2024 Goal Setting Workshop for Your Business and Personal Life.   Find out more about the 28-Day Business and Life Bootcamp for Badass Women.   Join the Prosperous Pet Business Facebook group.   Click to apply to be coached on the Prosperous Pet Business podcast.   Connect with Kristin Morrison on Instagram.     Copyright © Prosperous Pet Business and Kristin Morrison www.ProsperousPetBusiness.com
Episode 136. Create Financial Awareness, Self-Esteem and Confidence

Episode 136. Create Financial Awareness, Self-Esteem and Confidence
Today’s podcast coaching client is Kristen.   She boards dogs in her home and has three sons who keep her busy. She is going through a divorce and her soon-to-be ex-husband supported most her financial needs and now she needs to make more money in her dog boarding business.    What becomes apparent as we begin this coaching session is that she needs to get clear how much she needs to make each month. We discuss the gifts that can happen when she does financial tracking and also the best way to track business and personal numbers.    We also explore the goal setting process and why it’s important for Kristen to do and how her financial goals may positively impact her net profit.   We also discuss the glass ceiling and what can help her move beyond current financial blocks.    On a personal level, one of Kristen’s barriers that has affected her self-esteem (and earning) is that her prior partner didn’t support her and in fact, put her down a lot. She experienced a lot of belittling from him, and it really wore down her self-esteem. Now that she’s out of that relationship and can see clearly, she needs to strengthen herself internally, cultivate confidence and self-esteem both while living her life and running her dog boarding business.        Visit the show notes page at: www.ProsperousPetBusiness.com/podcast136     Listen to Kristin Morrison’s other podcast: Business Pathfinder podcast.   Find out more about the live monthly webinars and workshops for pet business owners.   Join the Prosperous Pet Business Facebook group.   Click to apply to be coached on the Prosperous Pet Business podcast.   Connect with Kristin Morrison on Instagram.     Copyright © Prosperous Pet Business and Kristin Morrison   www.ProsperousPetBusiness.com
Episode 134. Healing Hyper-Independence and Loneliness

Episode 134. Healing Hyper-Independence and Loneliness
This is an episode from my other podcast that is for all types of business owners called Business Pathfinder.   I wanted to share this episode with you, dear pet business owner, because I think you may find it helpful too. A lot of pet business owners suffer from what my coaching client in this session is struggling with here.   It’s my hope that if you also struggle with what my coaching client is grappling with, that hearing this session will help you - and perhaps even begin to help you heal, too.   My coaching client in this session is Alex. She is a software engineer and entrepreneur in Poland. She helps business owners master technology through a membership site she created called Tech Club.   Our conversation at the beginning of the session may at first seem like it’s not relevant to Alex’s business but as you listen, you’ll hear it sets the stage for where we end up going in this session.    Alex is one of those entrepreneurs who “has really good starts” but after her initial success, her projects seem to fizzle out.    We bring who we are into our business. If we’re not consciously aware of what we’ve learned about money and work from our parents and grandparents, we may unconsciously carry those parental beliefs that aren’t ours into our work.   This can also happen with childhood wounds that have not yet been healed - they can profoundly impact how we run our businesses, as you’ll hear is the case with Alex.    Trigger warning: there’s a brief mention of suicidal thoughts in this episode, so please take loving care of yourself as you listen.      Visit the show notes page at: www.ProsperousPetBusiness.com/podcast134     Find out more about the 28-Day Business and Life Bootcamp for Badass Women.   Listen to Kristin Morrison’s other podcast: Business Pathfinder podcast.   Find out more about the live monthly webinars and workshops for pet business owners.   Join the Prosperous Pet Business Facebook group.   Click to apply to be coached on the Prosperous Pet Business podcast.   Connect with Kristin Morrison on Instagram.     Copyright © Prosperous Pet Business and Kristin Morrison www.ProsperousPetBusiness.com
Episode 132. Learn to Delegate and Let Go

Episode 132. Learn to Delegate and Let Go
This is Part Two of my coaching session with Amy. If you haven’t yet heard Part One (Episode 131), I encourage you to listen to that first as it sets the stage for this session.   In Part One you heard Amy having a hard time detaching from her phone. In this session, you’ll hear how hard it is for her to delegate and let go to an office manager or admin assistant and other staff members.   If you can relate to this (and I know a lot of you can!), this episode is for you!   Thanks to Amy for being willing to be so open, authentic and vulnerable in both of her coaching sessions with me.   We cover topics in these two sessions that a lot of pet business owners struggle with and I feel grateful she was able to show up so courageously in order to not only get help for herself but also help those of you who struggle with this similar issue.     Visit the show notes page at:  www.ProsperousPetBusiness.com/podcast132   Find out more about the 28-Day Business and Life Bootcamp for Badass Women.   Listen to Kristin Morrison’s other podcast – this one is for all types of business owners: Business Pathfinder podcast.   Find out more about the live monthly webinars and workshops for pet business owners.   Join the Prosperous Pet Business Facebook group.    Click to apply to be coached on the Prosperous Pet Business podcast.   Connect with Kristin Morrison on Instagram.     Copyright © Prosperous Pet Business and Kristin Morrison   www.ProsperousPetBusiness.com
Episode 129. Pricing Pet Services and Embodying Your Value

Episode 129. Pricing Pet Services and Embodying Your Value
Brionna provides pet care services including vacation visits and mobile nail trims. She’s having a difficult time determining how to price her pet services. She often feels awkward and uncomfortable when it comes to stating how much she charges.  Even though Brionna will tell clients her highest rate, she will often back pedal if a client protests that her rate is too high. Sometimes she’ll voluntarily offer a discount even when they don’t say a word about her price! This pattern of not charging what she believes her time and energy are worth is creating resentment toward her business and disappointment in herself. Brionne needs help getting out of this disempowering cycle.  In this business coaching session, you’ll join us as we go on a wild ride that starts with a "left-brain" coaching process of Brionna discovering exactly how to price her services so they feel good to her and aren’t too high or too low.  Find out more and sign up now for the 28-Day Business and Life Bootcamp for Badass Women!  Visit the show notes page:  www.ProsperousPetBusiness.com/podcast129   Join the private Facebook group for pet business owners.    Find out more about the live monthly webinars and workshops for pet business owners.   Schedule a private pet business coaching session with Kristin Morrison.   Apply to be coached by Kristin on the Prosperous Pet Business podcast.   Schedule an in-person VIP Pet Business Coaching Day in Hawaii or California.
Episode 127. Protect Mental Health and Prioritize Self-Care

Episode 127. Protect Mental Health and Prioritize Self-Care
This is the second part of Gabrielle’s session. If you haven’t already heard part one, you may want to go back and listen to Episode 126.   Gabrielle is a business owner recovering from a hysterectomy and now that her healing is nearly done, she wants to be able to create a more financially lucrative business.   She has a dog treat business and an overnight pet sitting business. And, though she is passionate about expanding and growing her business in new ways, she also wants to protect her mental health in the process and not burn herself out.   This second part of Gabrielle’s session went in a direction both of us did not see coming. That’s one of the experiences I love most about coaching – when both the client I’m working with and I can get out of the way and be open to where the session wants to take us, empowering change can occur.
