Pet professionals are overworked and undervalued.

How many pet pros do you know who have lots of time, energy, and money? It's a pretty short list, isn't it? 

It's time to make some changes.

It makes sense that you are struggling. There's nothing easy about being a pet professional. If you're like most, you work long hours, doing physically demanding work, and focus on problems that can't be fixed in an hour.

You're always juggling short- and long-term treatment goals, managing expectations, and feeling like no matter how much you do, it's never enough. 

YOU'RE EXHAUSTED ALL THE TIME

You work long hours, doing physically and mentally demanding work, and then go home to take care of everything there. Getting 8 hours of restful sleep sounds like heaven.

YOU'VE GONE FROM FEELING TOO MUCH TO FEELING NUMB AND DISCONNECTED 

After years of hearing sad stories and dealing with a rollercoaster of emotions (your own and other people's), you're kind of fried. The things that used to light you up don't feel the same. You feel detached, weary, and isolated.

YOUR TO-DO LIST JUST KEEPS GETTING LONGER

You're good at what you do, which is a blessing and a curse! You spend your time rushing from task to task. It's rare that you get to feel the sense of peace and accomplishment that should come from a job well done, because your mind is always focused on what's next, what's urgent, what's waiting for your attention.

YOU KEEP HOPING THINGS WILL GET BETTER, BUT IT'S BEEN YEARS NOW

You've been telling yourself, "I've just got to get through this busy period, and then things will calm down" for such a long time that now you know it's not true. Things won't calm down until you make some significant changes. But, ugh, that sounds like work and you're just too tired to take on one more thing.

What if it were easy?

Imagine having a safe place to relax and unwind. Learning new ways to understand and support yourself better. Having community of people who genuinely care about you. Feeling a sense of connection, empowerment, and hope. Making time and space for laughter, creativity, and joy. How would your life be different if you could make these changes?

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE UNLEASHED RESILIENCE COMMUNITY

  • LIVE GROUP DISCUSSIONS. In-person, interactive training delivered right to your home. Join us in your pajamas if you want to. In these Zoom sessions, community members will talk about the month's theme and how it shows up in their lives. You'll share your ideas and learn from others with the goal of really figuring out what works best for you, in your life, with your goals. These sessions will leave you feeling connected, understood, and inspired.
  • LEARNING LABS. This is your chance to try a new skill or explore an idea in a live, 1-hour session. It's a safe place for you to experiment. There's no need to be perfect or get it "right." Instead, it's an opportunity for you to be playful, to experiment, to explore so that you feel more centered, confident, open, and engaged.
  • "TRY THIS" ACTIVITIES. Every month, you'll be introduced to 2-3 strategies to try at work and at home, like a secret spy mission. You don't have to tell anyone you're doing them. By making a few subtle, behind-the-scenes tweaks, you'll start seeing a difference in how you feel and how others interact with you. You'll feel more focused, energized, and present.
  • ONLINE DISCUSSION FORUM. You are not alone. Connect with other pet professionals who "get it" in our private Facebook group 24 hours a day. Ask questions, share your struggles, and celebrate your wins! 
  • RECORDED SESSIONS. Each month's learning lab and group discussion are recorded so that you don't miss out if you can't attend. Pet pros have crazy schedules, so these sessions are offered at different times of day and days of the week in an attempt to reach as many people as possible. Being there in real time is always better, but it's not alway possible--don't worry; we've got you covered.
  • BONUS CONTENT FROM INDUSTRY EXPERTS. Many guests from the UNLEASHED (at work & home) podcast also share exclusive tips with the UNLEASHED Resilience community. You'll learn their secrets for feeling rejuvenated, committed, and empowered. 

True learning doesn’t come from lectures; it happens when you figure out how new information applies to your real life. That's the magic of UNLEASHED Resilience.

"Uplifted and Supported"

This program was incredibly helpful. I felt uplifted and supported by the group. I gained new insights and learned multiple new strategies that have made my work and home life more meaningful.

~ Linda Hudson, Humane Rescue Alliance, Washington, DC

"Change Your Life"

Self care can feel uncomfortable... we don't have time, it feels silly, etc. This group makes caring for yourself easy... no guilt, no pressure, just a method to move toward self-care that can change your life, not just for you, but for your family and the others you serve.

~ Tina Spring, Sit Happens, Athens, GA

YOUR PATH TO FULFILLMENT

MAKE THE DECISION

Something's gotta give. You're eager for relief from all those sad stories, your endless to-do list, and the weight of other people's expectations.

BUILD YOUR FOUNDATION

You know the work you do today will make tomorrow better. You're learning to respond, not just react, to what's going on around you.

TRUST THE PROCESS

The pieces are falling into place. You are enjoying your work more, can feel your impact, and are creating deeper, more meaningful connections with other people.

MAKE IT YOUR OWN

You've reclaimed space for joy, laughter, and creativity and show up as your true self in every area of your life. You inspire others to make their own changes.
