Thriving, Not Just Surviving: Goal Setting & Strategic Planning Workshop
Online Event
This has been one hell of a year! I'm ready to put the roller coaster ride of 2020 behind me and set my sights on thriving in 2021. Are you with me?
You hear all the time about the benefits of goal setting and strategic planning, but have you taken the time to do this for your business or your life?
Many small business owners don't spend the time to really slow down and create the goals and action steps that lead them to success.
Having a strategic plan not only gives you a roadmap for success, but it allows you to stop being so BUSY. It gives you clarity and focus and provides permission for you to say NO to the things that don't matter.
In this workshop, we will work together to help you gain clarity on your key goals, understand the personal and professional impact of those goals, and create the first action steps moving you closer to your definition of success.

People sometimes laugh at the prospect of insuring a pet as a kind of extravagance. But when you love a pet as much as most people do, an unexpected illness or accident can force you into incredibly hard situations.

For peace of mind and not a lot of money, pet insurance may be worth checking out. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
  • To enroll, puppies and kittens must be six to ten weeks old at a minimum. Many insurers cut off first-time enrollment when your pet reaches 10 to 14 years of age. 
  • Pet insurance coverage varies. Some plans cover only emergencies and accidents, while other more comprehensive plans cover cancer, congenital and hereditary conditions, and other chronic diseases.
  • Most pet insurance plans don’t cover pre-existing conditions or wellness visits like annual exams or teeth cleaning.
  • Depending on your pet’s age and breed, where you live, and the level of coverage you select, the cost of pet insurance ranges from $10 to $60 per month.
  • Pet insurance plans work by reimbursing you for a percentage of the treatment costs. You choose your reimbursement level when you purchase the policy, such as 70%, 80%, or 90%.

If you are like me, you want your dog or cat to receive the very best care at every stage of life. Give me a call or shoot me an email if you would like a quick quote.
