Or Listen Here
Would you feel comfortable stepping away from your business for a week? How about a month? Three months?
If you haven’t heard the amazing news yet, here it is–
Baby Pet Boss is coming in February 2023!!
Our CEO, Candace, her husband, Joey, and their three fur kids, Clover, Dory & Dante are ready to welcome their first baby, and it’s a BOY!
A baby on the way means that over the next few months, Candace will be preparing herself and the Pet Boss Nation team for her maternity leave. But how does one step away from their business for an extended period of time?
No matter the reason– unexpected illness, needing a long vacation, maternity leave, or something else, finding ways that you can actually remove yourself from your business if needed is a GOOD thing.
On today’s episode, Candace called in a pet industry professional who is on her maternity leave right now– Kaila Piepkow, the CEO and founder of the creative design studio, Dox Design.
Kaila and Candace dive into:
☑️ How Kaila nailed down the SOPs in her business, and how that prepared her team for her maternity leave.
☑️How Kaila was able to relinquish some control and trust her employees– even as a protective entrepreneur!
☑️What Kaila’s leave actually looks like, and what will be different once she returns to her business.
☑️So much more!
No matter what, being prepared to step away from your pet business and know that things will still run smoothly is something that will benefit you, so don’t miss this episode!
