What’s your pet business culture, and why it matters?


Spread the love:

Have you ever thought about the culture of your pet business?

This topic came up recently during a discovery call with a client, and I realised I had never taken the time to define my own.

Your culture is comprised of the values, beliefs, behaviors, and environment that shape your brand or business.

It plays a significant role in how you operate and communicate with prospective customers and clients, influencing how people experience your brand and why they choose you.

In this episode, I cover why your culture matters, how to define it, and how to effectively communicate it.

Plus examples from pet business owners in my community, demonstrating how they embody their culture and bring it to life.
