For this edition of the PetSittingOlogy Digital Series, Josh Cary interviews writer and entrepreneur John…
Do you ever wonder how certain pet business owners become so successful when it appears to come naturally to them?
It’s often the small, subtle acts of service that have accumulated over time to produce an incredible result.
This is the same concept that a farmer experiences, for example. A farmer will plant seeds, tend to the crops, water the soil, and a hundred other things in order to get the desired result.
Many of these small steps are less than glamorous and often unrewarded. No immediate result is seen…
The fruits of your labor pay off. Literally.
Your pet business is no different. Your success is not the direct result of a few specific actions. True success is the result of the return and payoff of hundreds of small, subtle actions of service that you have done.
How can you specifically and deliberately utilize this concept in your own life and business to achieve whatever level of success you are looking for?
Glad you asked.

We sat down with Bob Burg for a candid and detailed discussion on the Laws of his classic book The Go-Giver, which reached #9 on the Businessweek Best-Seller list.
The Go-Giver has a great message: the way to become successful is to be generous of your time and skills. This is an ageless philosophy that has also been addressed by Jay Baer in Youtility, Gary Vaynerchuk in Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook, and Ryan Hanley in everything he does!
Bob Burg’s Five Laws of Stratospheric Success:
The Law of Value:
Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.
The Law of Compensation:
Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.
The Law of Influence:
Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first.
The Law of Authenticity:
The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.
The Law of Receptivity:
The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving.
Point of book: Shifting your focus from “getting to giving” is not only a nice and spiritual way to live life…but a very financially profitable way, as well.
Bob’s bottom line principle: “All things being equal, people will do business with, and refer business to, those people they know, like and trust.”
