AnimalSign

AnimalSign To You. Imagine! Signing Is Not Just for Primates Anymore

Course Information:

Sean Senechal explains how animals such as dogs, horses, cats, and birds can learn to communicate in detail with a new AnimalSign Language. She explains this new tool for educating animals while approaching them as language learners by discussing her new book AnimalSign To You. Imagine! Signing Is Not Just for Primates Anymore. Sean goes over the concept of language education for animals, AnimalSign language structure, its uses, and benefits. Companion and Service animals can use this language to better bond and perform in their professions–as companions or assistance animals. You’ll leave the seminar with heightened expectations, and a journal/worksheet to incorporate this new approach to your business and personal lives.

This free seminar will introduce you to the AnimalSign Language concept, uses, benefits, and research. You will have questions answered about the new tool and get a head start using it with worksheets. You will find out about the book AnimalSign To You, which will help you understand and apply this language.

Business of Burnout

Business of Burnout

Course Information:

Burnout is the ultimate crisis of self-esteem, so it’s easy to see how being in that state can have an impact on our business success. Taking money for our services can be especially difficult when self-esteem is low. In this session, we’ll talk about some of the major sources of burnout – the Dreaded “Shoulds” and the Warm Fuzzies – and how to get past them and back to functioning happily and effectively. We’ll then look at the many important intangibles that go into pricing ourselves and our services. We’ll discover that our clients are getting a lot more than they – or we – ever imagined. The burnout feeling that “I’m not worth much” can then be transformed into the thoughtful question “How much am I worth?”
