We are hyper-focused on goals right now, and so for the next several weeks, we’ll be sharing some new FetchFind features and offerings. As a side goal, it would be so awesome if OUR momentum inspires YOU to get hopping on something you are excited to complete and roll out. Get it going, my friends. This is YOUR year.
So let me start…
Here’s some good news for everyone with available job opportunities: We’re retiring our creaky old job board and moving to a Facebook page named Pet Industry Jobs. If you’d like to have something posted, fill out the info here. Thanks to the excellent David Muriello at CATCH Academy for working with us on the development and beta testing.
The 2018 conference/tradeshow season is about to start in earnest, and I’m hoping to catch up with as many of you as possible at one (or all) of them. Below are my Q1 conference selections. P.S. I’ll be speaking at some of them too. Woot!
2/23 – 2/25/18 – Texas Pet Sitters Conference | Schertz, TX
This is my first time and I’m thrilled that they invited me to participate! I’ll be speaking bright and early Saturday morning 2/24. But you’ll want to get there on 2/23 because 1) the fabulous Arden Moore (who is the creator of our Feline Fundamentals content) will be doing a “Cat Wrangling” workshop, and 2) the welcome reception is a Texas tailgate BBQ. Register for the conference here.
3/14/17 – The National Capital Area Professional Pet Sitters Network | DC Metro
Another exciting first for me! I met quite a few members of NCAPPSN at another conference last year, and they are an impressive bunch. This is one of their members-only events, so if you have a pet sitting biz in the DC Metro area, you should join their network. Really.
3/21-3/23/18 – Global Pet Expo | Orlando, FL
I won’t be speaking this year, but I will be covering every inch of the exhibit space talking to our customers, meeting new people, catching up with old friends, and checking out the learning track they offer. If you’re going to be there, let’s get a coffee (or shop for dog breed socks with me. I just can’t quit those damn things.)
What are your goals for this month/quarter/year? And how can we help you with those? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
