Find Your Fun

Find Your Fun is a three-part, interactive workshop designed to help pet pros enjoy their lives more. Come prepared for activities, discussion, and self-discovery!

The workshop includes three 90-minute interactive, recorded sessions (plus an optional, just-for-fun 30-minute hangout after each)

Part 1: Monday, April 24, 2023, 3:00-4:30 pm ET

Part 2: Wednesday, April 26, 2023, 3:00-4:30 pm ET

Part 3: Monday, May 1, 2023, 3:00-4:30 pm ET

  • Explore the elements of fun
  • Discover what fun means for you
  • Learn how fun helps you thrive
  • Figure out how to find your fun
  • Set yourself up to have more fun, more often, from now on

Who is this workshop for?

  • Can’t remember the last time you really enjoyed yourself?
  • Do you wish you had more joy, laughter, and connection?
  • Do you find yourself absorbing and holding onto other people’s negative emotions?
  • Do you want more fun, but don’t know how to fit it into your busy life?
  • When you take time off, does your brain keep focusing on all the work that’ll be waiting for you upon your return?
  • Does the word "fun" drive you crazy because you aren't really sure what it means anymore, and it feels like you'll have to pull your hair out to figure out what fun is?

If you fit one of these categories, this workshop is for you! Grab your spot now!

Fun is less think and more do.

Who is this NOT for?

People who wear busyness and overwhelm as a badge of honor.

The Nitty-Gritty Details

Do I need to be at all 3 sessions? Or can I choose from one of the 3 dates?

I'll be presenting different material at each of the sessions, so you need to watch all three to get all of the content and context of this workshop. You do not, however, need to attend the sessions live. 

Do I have to attend live?

These sessions will be recorded, so if you can't join us in real time, you will get the recording. 

But if you can attend live, please do! You'll get more out of the sessions when you are participating and interacting with others. It'll be more fun that way, I promise.

What if I miss a session and don't have time to watch the recording before the next one?

Come anyway! You, just as you are, always have something to contribute to the group, whether or not you're up to date with the sessions. You can go back and catch up with what you missed later, but you can't ever catch up or hit pause on a live experience. You've gotta be there to have it, so come. Participate!

If I can't attend any of the live sessions, is it still worth signing up?

That depends. If you are someone who learns well via video and who is motivated to take action to have more fun, yes, please sign up anyway, even if you can't attend the live sessions.

However, I can't tell you how many of my coaching clients feel the weight of unwatched conference videos as a burden and another thing on their endless to-do lists. I don't want that to happen to you with a workshop about fun! 

If that's likely, maybe it's best to wait for next time. I plan to offer this again because (perhaps you've noticed) a lot of pet pros are in serious need of some fun!

What's the difference between the 90-minute recorded sessions and the optional, just-for-fun hangout?

The 90-minute sessions will include a variety of activities: explanations of concepts, time for you to gather your own ideas, and small-group discussions to get a fuller understanding of key points. These elements form the official workshop, and they will be recorded. (If I opt to use Zoom breakout rooms for small-group discussions, the breakout rooms will not be included in the session recording.)

There will be a structure to these 90-minute sessions.

I don't know what will happen in the 30-minute hangouts.

Perhaps some people will have questions about the material. Maybe they'll want to keep talking with one another about something that came up in their small-group conversation. Maybe someone will have a thought they'd like to share. Or one of us may want to introduce two people we know to each other. Anything goes. 

The 30-minute hangouts will not be recorded. They are completely optional; there's no requirement to stay. And I will be setting a timer to ensure that I don't get caught up in the fun (look, bonus fun!) and lose track of time. 

If you'd like to participate in these sessions, I don't know what will happen, but I bet you'll enjoy it. And I promise to wrap things up at 5:00 pm ET.

Engaging, relatable, and fun

If you haven't heard Colleen Pelar present, you're missing out! Banish the days of monotone speakers in a darkened room boring everyone to tears. Colleen is a passionate educator with a great presentation style that's engaging, relatable, and fun. You'll learn and almost certainly laugh out loud. I recommend her wholeheartedly!

Fully Backed by our "fun or refund Guarantee"
