Smart Conversations with Smart Women: Victoria Schade - Author Speaker Dog Trainer

Smart Conversations with Smart Women:  Victoria Schade - Author Speaker Dog Trainer

I have to say this conversation was full of the kind of energy and learning we should each enjoy, every morning of our lives. I can tell you, re-watching the conversation brought smooth beams of warm sunlight into my office.

Part of the joy was in the topic of conversation - dogs. I could talk about dogs (and cats and gerbils and guinea pigs, etc) all day. Life is just better with pets.

We were a small group of women, and men, who wanted to share insight and expertise via the written word in a focused blog. That just means we blogged about being in business on the Internet. As opposed to blogging about what we had for dinner or who came to visit on our birthday.

One of the best parts of this conversation is when Hollie says, “Magic happens.”

We talk about magic here at Nurturing Big Ideas. I believe in your talents and magic. Having Hollie say those words, unbidden by me, made my heart soar. You’ll have to watch to discover why she said them, and what she means by them.

No matter how much you want to say your pets are people, “My dog is my child.” Or, “Pets are family.” when push comes to shove, no one will consider them so. In the end, during or after a disaster, however major or minor, (mine is minor, foot surgery and back problems in the same week…well, this too shall pass and I will be all better soon), if you have not made a plan for your pets’ care, the universe will do it for you and I, personally, do not trust the Universe.

I will never forget the first time I saw Aimee. It was at a BlogPaws conference. This stunning young woman with black hair, a beautiful smile, and the best eye makeup I’d ever seen, was walking towards me and I couldn’t stop staring at her. “She’s stunning!” I thought.
