9:00 – 10:00      I Said I’d NEVER Groom Cats! How Did I End up Here? 

I am so over-the-top excited to have the opportunity to share with you my journey to cat grooming and how it has become one of my best business decisions. 

In this seminar I will:

  • share my cat grooming knowledge as a business owner- analyzing the pros and cons.
  • share knowledge and advice so you can eliminate any fears and negative paradigms of feline grooming.
  • inform you on why there is an absolute need for these services to be available to the cat-owning public.
  • outline why being skilled at dog grooming has little to do with your ability to groom a cat.
  • review cat vs dog grooming techniques- analyzing how understanding the felines genetics, physiology, and psychology is your key to success.
  • discuss the equipment and tools we use for successful, safe, efficient feline grooms
  • and finally, we will do a quick comparison of the day in the life of a dog vs. a cat groomer.

Together we will claw our way through the world of feline grooming and have fun and laughs along the way!  How can you not laugh at the narcissistic nature of the cat?

 

1:30 -2:30       6 Ninja Techniques to Use on Cats, That Would NEVER Work on Dogs:  The Difference Between Success & Failure and Becoming a True Feline-Ninja-Warrior!  

Join me for a feline-fabulous hour along with time for questions and answers. In this session, I will share with you how to become a Feline-Ninja-Warrior with a video and role-playing demonstrations.  Together our goal will be to:

  • learn how to assess a cats temperament
  • uniquely handle a cat once assessed
  • use various tools, equipment & products for safe, efficient, extraordinary feline grooms
  • understand the process of introducing water, air, dematting, the clipper and more to the cat
  • learn how to achieve cat-show-worthy-results on every cat you groom

Being a warrior takes great skill, talents, and knowledge.  I will show you how to “ninja”fy so you are “feline” confident!

11:00 – 11:45  What I Know For Sure- Lessons In Running a Grooming Business. 

Running a business is hard work, and we all need a little help and encouragement along the way.  I started my grooming business as a mobile-one-gal-show and grew it to a beautiful team of 20.  Over my 12 years of being in the grooming profession, I have experienced great successes, but believe me,  I have also experienced tremendous heartaches.  My heartaches included almost closing my doors due to financial struggles (twice), suffering a life-altering illness (breast cancer), and trying to flounder my way as an employer with little to no experience.  I have learned life-changing, positive learnings along the way, and would love to share some of these lessons and my journey to their discovery with you!

1:00 – 2:00      How I got 500 Cat Clients on a 6-8 Week Schedule. Connie Buchanan

Working less and making more is the best Cat Grooming secret!  I will share the strategies our salon, PreZoomably Cats: Feline Groomz & Roomzhas implemented to keep cats coming through our doors!

Are you “Feline Adventurous”?  If so, join me on my journey and I will walk you through how I achieved a wondrous clientele and how we keep them coming back. 

Together we will:

  • learn the why, what & how rule
  • discuss why understanding who your client is, is so important
  • recognize how education and knowledge is always priority #1
  • look at how to goal set and create a follow-through formula for success
  • discuss ways to delight your clients and keep them coming back for more; via promotions, social media, email, print materials and more!

Join me for a fun-filled seminar of tips and information on building a person-to-person relationship with every customer. The more personal and authentic the link, the more indispensable it becomes. At the end of the seminar, I will share my Free Ebook “The Cat Clientele Conquer Kit” with all attendees.  Regardless of whether you groom cats or dogs, the information shared is universal with ideas to Conquer Those Clients!

2:30PM-4PM – ‘7 Ways to Invite New Clients to Your Business, & More Importantly, Convert Them to Repeat Clients!’ 

“Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver, the other gold.”

A long-term customer is of more value than a single-deal customer, and it’s a lot less expensive to keep a current customer than to acquire a new one.

Our goal as groomers isn’t to acquire massive numbers of clients; our goal is to achieve a tangible number of repeat clients.

In this seminar, Connie will:

  • Show the importance of starting with “Why” (before you tackle the “What” and “How”) to get those clients coming through your doors and returning on a repeat schedule
  • Walk you through the steps of calculating just how many repeat clients YOU need to make your business soar
  • Reinforce the importance of correct pricing -YOU need to be paid what you’re worth- YOU are valuable!
  • Elaborate on how goal setting is imperative for a clear path towards growth and success
  • Share with you the importance of understanding who your perfect client is and what they’re searching for in your services
  • Identify ways to reach and delight your clients through email, social media, print materials, & more

Join Connie for a fun-filled seminar of tips and information on building a person-to-person relationship with every customer. The more personal and authentic the link, the more indispensable it becomes. At the end of the seminar, Connie will share her Free Ebook “The Cat Clientele Conquer Kit” with all attendees.  Regardless of whether you groom cats or dogs, the information shared is universal with ideas to Conquer Those Clients!

I am so over-the-top excited to have the opportunity to share with you my journey to cat grooming and how it has become one of my best business decisions. In this seminar, we will take a serious look at the cat grooming business- analyzing the pros and cons, evaluating the business (income) opportunities (whether it be as a separate grooming business or one in combination with dog grooming), eliminating fears and negative paradigms of feline grooming through education and the sharing of techniques, and most of all recognizing the absolute need from a feline’s health perspective for these services to be available to the cat owning public! If you are one of those groomers like me, who said “I’d never groom a cat”, or someone who is thinking about the possibilities, this seminar is for you! Together we will claw our way through the world of feline grooming and have fun and laughs too! How can you not laugh at the narcissistic nature of the cat?
