The truth is, having too many clients and not enough time IS a good thing — but it’s also incredibly stressful! You feel rushed and behind, and you begin to worry that the quality of your work is suffering.
And it can lead to burn out big time.
Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact the solution is pretty simple.
So. You want to gather a few new testimonials.
Maybe you’re redoing your website, redoing a brochure, or maybe it’s that you just wrapped up a class that you felt went particularly well.
But… asking for a testimonial can be awkward.
As a dog trainer you probably are pretty used to saying “It depends” when someone asks you for advice.
You know there are no silver bullets when it comes to dog training — that is, there is no one method, technique, trick, or option that will solve every problem, every time.
Can I ask you a question?
You don’t actually have to share the answer — just be honest with yourself. When was the last time you checked your Google Analytics account?
Let’s be real. It’s probably been a while. Days? Weeks? Months?
If you’re like most people, part of the reason you don’t check in more often is that when you do, you feel a little… lost. It feels like a lot of data, and you’re sure some of it has to be useful (right?) but you don’t really know what you’re actually looking at.
Don’t feel bad; the truth is you’re not alone.
