Jocelyn: Hey y’all like hey all on today’s podcast we help Carolyn take her dog training business to the next level.
Shane: Welcome to the Flipped Lifestyle Podcast, where life always comes before work. We’re your hosts, Shane and Jocelyn Sams. Join us each week as we teach you how to flip your lifestyle upside-down by selling stuff online. Are you ready for something different? Alright, let’s get started. What’s going on everybody? Welcome back to the Flipped Lifestyle podcast. It is great to be back with you again this week. Jocelyn and I are supercharged up, we are just returning from a week in Florida with our kids. We had a great time, but we’re ready to hit the ground running and get back into podcast mode, so that we can help you take your online business to the next level. If you’re new to the Flipped Lifestyle podcast, this is probably a little different than some of the other shows you may have listen to on your phone or device. We do not bring on experts or gurus on to the flipped lifestyle podcast, we bring on real people real members of our Flipped Your Life community, we record a live consulting call with them to help them take their business to the next level, and then we broadcast that so everyone can listen in and take those tips and apply it to their specific situation. We are super excited about our guest today. She is a good friend, she is just coming off our Flip Your Life private mastermind and she is also a very valuable member to our Flip Your Life community. Our guest today is Carolyn Lincoln, Carolyn welcome to the show.
Carolyn: Oh! Thank you! You have such energy, it’s so exciting. This is one reason I love the community.
Shane: This is how I am every minute of every day Carolyn. This is how it rolls around here.
Jocelyn: That’s pretty much a true story. Carolyn, we are very excited to talk to you today and we’re going to start out by quickly telling a little bit about you, what you do online, and just a little bit about your background.
Carolyn: Okay, well I am a veterinarian. I’ve been practicing for 26 years, and three years ago I opened up my own behavioral practice called “Play to Behave” and I really love it. It’s always been my passion to work with behavior and training. I take care of a lot of serious cases and then I also do some puppy training. I actually have a puppy class and teach some agility as well, which is another passion — dog agility — so I compete in that. And then at home, I have been married for 33 years, we have four children and our last one just finished her freshman year in college.
Shane: Awesome! You’ve been a busy bee for the last few years I guarantee it.
Carolyn: Yeah! They’re great kids, but I don’t know it’s… always thought that, you know, once they go off to school we’d have this empty nest. Well, let me tell you, it’s not really an empty nest. They text every day-
Shane: That’s right.
Carolyn: They call.
Shane: That’s right.
Carolyn: They still need you.
Shane: So basically, like teaching people how to potty train (puppy) and get them to behave better — that’s what your online business is going to be — an extension of this “Play to Behave” class, where you can like teach people all over who might be getting a new puppy and how to bring it home, how to get it housebroken, how to train it to do whatever. That’s what we’re going to be trying to do with your online business, correct?
Carolyn: Yes, and 30% of dog owners to give up their dog for behavior problems. They can be incredibly serious. You know, people can’t go to a dinner, can’t go to a movie, can’t even go to work because some of these dogs will completely destroy their home.
Carolyn: So, it affects people emotionally and financially. And actually, truly 50% because 20% more would just say that’s because they don’t have enough time or that they have too much work, and half of them are puppies, you know, that end up in these shelters. I think puppy classes should be changed the way that they’re taught and prevention is one of the best things that I can do to help people with behavior. But yes, once they have a big issue it can mean anything from changing the environment to training to behavior modification-
Carolyn: – and sometimes medication.
Jocelyn: I really love that business side you have Carolyn. It’s something different than we typically see in this space, but it’s really interesting that you’re trying to help these dog owners to just be able to deal with their puppies better and just to have a better experience themselves and a better experience for the dog. So, I think that’s awesome. So, we always start out with “why” in everything that we do, so just tell us really quick why do you want to flip your life with online business.
Shane: Like, why do you want to go to online business instead of just doing these classes locally live.
Carolyn: Well, that’s an interesting question, and usually somebody comes in to the hospital or clinic and they need something. We do it within the office visit or if they stay, you know, and get hospitalized and so forth, but with behavior a lot of my work is education. So, I might have to spend, you know, a couple of hours with them, just so that they understand what their dog is doing, you know?
Carolyn: How to communicate with them and how to get the behavior that they want. Well, there’s a lot of distractions during an appointment and-
Carolyn: If I can record a lot of that and they can watch it at their own pace-
Carolyn: – then they would absorb a lot more and I think they’d have better outcomes. So, that was one main reason that I went into that. The second is because there is a ton of dog training classes out there. I can’t teach every puppy. It isn’t high quality teaching, sometimes it’s difficult to find a class, but a lot of them are based on old traditional methods that we know now can cause some of these behavior problems. Not just myself, but there is a whole group of us, of behavior professionals, trying to change the way that people are. Training we want to do it in a more positive way.
Shane: I love this “why”, because we all have reasons why we want online business. Sometimes it’s to scale an existing business, sometimes it’s just to get out of a 9 to 5, to free up, but this is touching on something that you are clearly passionate about. This is like a change-the-world type of business because there are millions and millions of people in this situation and you have seen the help they are getting is not good enough. It’s not right and you know you’ve got a big solution to their problem. What was it that you were saying to me earlier about solving problems?
Jocelyn: I said if you want to make serious money, you have to solve a serious problem.
Shane: And this is a serious problem. A lot of people are going to have this, so there’s a huge market for it, and also you are very passionate about it. I think sometimes we don’t talk about that a lot on the Flip Lifestyle podcast because we want people to go out and do what they can do to make money online, to flip their life and have the freedom, but a lot of times you can really center that around something that not only are you clearly an expert in, but you are just truly passionate about. That is absolutely awesome. Carolyn, tell us exactly where you are right now in your business. We are going to focus a lot on the now, and the next during this next few minutes together. Let’s figure out where you are today and then figure out what we are going to do next. Tell us where you are in your business — are you about to launch a new product? Are you finishing up something? Where are you in this “Play to Behave” business, only when it talks about online.
Carolyn: Well… I am currently recording, and almost done with my first instructional video series, and that will be on Crate Training.
Shane: What is Crate Training? What is that, I don’t know what that is?
Carolyn: Crate training is getting your dog to accept being in a cage.
Carolyn: Basically, a lot of us think of that as jail when you first hear about it, but it’s not. It’s actually giving them something akin to a bedroom for us. It’s a place where your puppy feels safe and secure. It gives you the opportunity to train them without punishment.
Carolyn: It’s really a great thing when they’re happy. I don’t want people to just have a dog that loves the crate either.
Carolyn: I want them to race to that crate when they give the command.
Shane: This is a video training?
Carolyn: This particular one was going to have five modules so they know what to buy when they go out to get a crate and where they are going to put it. We have to think about the size, the weight, the materials made out of and that kind of thing, and how to train the puppy to love it.
Shane: And this is going to lead to something else you said?
Carolyn: From there, that’s the easiest and fastest way to potty train a puppy, by using a crate, but if you can’t get a crate it doesn’t help you very much. Once they can get the crate then I am going to help people with potty training. I also have some things I am going to put out there, about bringing the puppy home and what you need to have set up already at your house, and what you need to bring with you.
Shane: So really what I’m saying is you’ve got the basic videos for your first E-course and we’re going to be releasing this and this is going to be the springboard for the next part of your online business, which were going to into next, Jocelyn?
Jocelyn: So let’s get into your first question first today. What is the big problem and that you’re facing right now in your online business and how can we help you move forward?
Carolyn: As you know me now from the masterminds and such you know I’m a perfectionist, so part of my issue is making sure that the videos are ready. I don’t want to feel plastic or rehearsed I want to be myself. I’ve gotten a lot of advice from that, so I just want to know how you know when they are ready, what makes you feel like you’re finished?
Jocelyn: I don’t know honestly, as someone who also identifies as a perfectionist. I don’t know if you will ever feel that way, to be honest. I think what you have to do is to outline it, recorded and move on. Don’t keep watching it, don’t dwell on what else you could add or what else you could have said instead of this. I often say that if I listen to the Flipped Lifestyle podcast before it was aired, then it would probably never air. You have to just record things and get them out there for the world. Get something done. Get it out there. Something that’s finished is always better than something that’s perfect.
Shane: The thing about perfectionism is that perfection to you is different for other people. You don’t know what they need or what they want to see. If you sit and dwell on it all the time you could have just released it and it would have been perfect for half your audience. There’s a thing I learned last year called a “spotlight syndrome.” We think everyone sees and hears everything we do and notices every mistake we make, when in reality nobody really cares. They’re just looking for that one piece of nugget of information that they need to move forward. If you give them that, they are okay. I’ve noticed a couple of things that can really help people in this situation. Number one is deadlines with consequences. That’s why we recommend pre-selling things because if you pre-sell something and you’ve already gotten someone’s money and tell them that you’ll send them the rest on a certain date, you have no choice but to finish it whether it’s the best you’ve ever done or the worst you’ve ever done. You have to get it done because you’ve already taken money and made a promise. Don’t just set arbitrary deadlines on your calendar, you need deadlines with consequences. For example, you’re going to be on this podcast on a couple of months. You will want to have your stuff done before people start clicking the link and the shownotes. That gives you a deadline with consequences. The second thing that Jocelyn touched on is that perfectionists love checklists. They love to check those boxes. You’ve got to create systems that allow you to do it, not just “I want all this in my video.” but it’s I get one piece of paper, I make a checklist on that piece of paper. I don’t get to go to the next piece of paper, and I do what the next bullet is until they are all gone, and I never go back to look at the old bullets. I have to release it once I get to that point. If you can give yourself some deadlines with consequences and you can systematize your checklist, it holds you accountable. You got a thing that you can finish now. The checklist can be perfect. “I checked every box” takes the perfectionism away from the big project. You don’t have to say every word right or film everything right. This thing gets to absorb all the perfectionism and you’ve removed it from the thing that you’re trying to release into the world. I would recommend doing a little bit of that.
Carolyn: Yeah! That really helps. One of the challenges that I had and I didn’t mention this before, but I got a puppy last year and that’s one of the reasons that also propelled me into doing this now — to start with more of the puppy stuff — is because I got one. I figured I can use her to be the star of the show so that I can help communicate everything using her as a demo. Well, you can only imagine that that’s not easy to film.
Shane: Right. For sure.
Carolyn: I don’t have a film crew so I’m just doing it myself — to have your clothes just right, and everything else just right, my head’s cut off from the photo — that’s the stuff that’s holding me back.
Jocelyn: But you know I think that that’s also what will draw people to you. There is a big part of selling called “know, like, and trust.” People want to know you, to like you, and trust you before they will decide to purchase something from you. I think that just being yourself and having your puppy have an accident when you’re trying to teach people how to potty train them — that’s real life. That’s what they are going through, and to know that someone else is dealing with it but can overcome it, that’s what they need to see. Don’t shy away from that. I think a lot of times we try to do that. I know I try to do that. I try to show my polished exterior and I’m just human like everyone else. That’s what we all just have to move past. I would also recommend finding an accountability partner who is a jump-off-the-cliff-with-no-parachute kind of person because you need that. That’s how I get past all my things. If I didn’t have a Shane here, I would still be sitting here going “I wonder if I should start Elementary Librarian?” Shane’s the one who pushes me off the cliff, and I have to make it work. That’s what you need also, you need that other opposite personality type.
Carolyn: I have to say that forum has really helped me. You guys have really helped me with that and I moved much faster than I ever would have without you. The accountability partners, I’ve tried to find some. I haven’t been so successful, but recently I met with two other people from the Flip Your Life community.
Shane: That’s awesome. Those pictures were amazing.
Carolyn: I can’t tell you how helpful it’s been. They are just two of the greatest women and great ideas. Finally, I have people who understand what I’m really doing and that helps a lot.
Shane: I also think that this goes back to huge problem with online marketing gurus. Gurus just irk me sometimes. All of these gurus want to look so polished and so perfect. You watch their videos, they’ve brought in their film crew. They’re teaching this course and all you have to do is this; seven easy steps and everything will work out perfect. And then what happens is 90% of the people that take their stupid course get no results. Absolutely no results. Well then you come into like what we’re saying, you’ve gotten our course, we got a freaking WordPress blog, we just throw stuff up and half of it is broken sometimes, we fix it as it go. We make mistakes and we are just talking to people, but then people get big results. It’s the same thing here — all these polished videos that you’re saying where there are people are teaching how to train these puppies really wrong. When that person watches and sees your dog poop on air, basically, while you’re training it, then you go back and you show it again and say “yesterday we had an accident, but today we did this” and then the puppy goes to the bathroom correctly, they see process that they are actually going through instead of this “here is my well-trained military dog that actually will poop in the toilet and flush” Process is way more important than perfection.
Carolyn: Thanks. You know I really want to get it out there. The class that I teach right now is called “Performance Puppy” and is geared towards puppies that are going into agility, herding, search and rescue, or dancing, all types of things, but honestly it’s the best way to teach any puppy. By the time were done in six weeks of these, puppies are riding on skateboards, they go through tunnels, they’re just having a blast. I want to get that out there so I have to stop worrying about every little thing. I just have to make it the way it is and let it go.
Jocelyn: You can do it! You’re halfway there. I know that you’ve already started so let’s just get it done. I think that probably hopefully helped with that issue so I think we have time for one more question about something that’s slowing you down right now.
Carolyn: I want to use your membership model, which I think is fabulous, because there is so much information. Everybody is going to be at a different point with their puppy and they are going to have different issues. Some would have issues with biting or whatever, so I am not completely sure if this Crate Training course that I would put out would be one product, like an introductory product, and then I have a couple of videos or things that I can use also to give away, but I don’t know how much to put in. I’m always struggling with the amount of material because I know too much, right?
Shane: Yeah! The curse of knowledge is what that’s called.
Carolyn: And then the other things too… when I met with the other women from the community, they suggested that maybe I do some live segments, like on Facebook, and those may just be 30 seconds talking about something I do with my puppy that day.
Shane: So the question here basically is the age old “what do I give away, what do I charge for, and what do I put in the membership.” That’s the crux of online business when it comes to pricing and content.
Jocelyn: Oh, I wish this had an easy answer.
Shane: Every business is really different, so we’re just going to talk about some generalities. Here’s what everyone needs to do with their online business. Any content that you charge for, better deliver a result. It has to deliver a result. You can’t hold back parts of things that will make people fail or get stuck. A lot of the stuff that we give away for free, we really wanted to help people, like making their avatar, or helping them on what they could do online, because that’s a result. Once you decide that, you can start researching it and moving forward. Even an opt-in, if you’re charging for a piece of content, you got it hidden behind the e-mail box. You’re charging them the cost of the e-mail. If they give you something of value, you’ve got to give them a result back. So this Crate Training course is great because it’s very quick, it’s very easy, even though it’s a subset of your overall niche on puppy owners. It’s going to attract a lot of people because they are going to get a result. After X amount of days, theoretically, you are going to help them get that puppy going in and out of the crate. Once you deliver a result for someone, they need the next step. That was then, now and they need the next. They are going to come back to you because you delivered a result. When people don’t come back to you, that means you’re not delivering result.
Jocelyn: So we heard at a conference once that can give away the condiments, but you want to sell the hamburger. Give them something. Give them a result, but then lead them into the real thing that they want to know, which is “I really want to know how to potty train my puppy.”
Shane: You go tell them. Your user doesn’t always know what they really want or even need. It’s like when you go to the doctor, you say “I’m sick, I’m coughing, I have a fever, I know my symptoms but do not know what’s causing that.” It could be the flu, it could be a cold, it could be allergy, it could be anything. So the doctor takes my symptoms and tells me what I need to do next. “Here is your prescription, go buy this and take it for three days. Come back and see me.” Same thing here. “Here’s how you get your puppy in the crate”, “okay, my puppy’s in the crate, what do I do next?” Then you teach them how to potty train.
Jocelyn: And I think, honestly, we could even back up a little bit beyond that. I think one of your funnels could even go to people who are looking for how to prepare for a new puppy. That’s the lead magnet for you.
Shane: That gives them a result because they go buy the things you tell them to buy.
Jocelyn: And then we go down the street of, okay, once you’ve done that, in my autoresponder I’m going to respond with this free webinar. It could be an automated log webinar, or a video you’ve already recorded about how to Crate Train your puppy, and at the end of that we are going to sell you our course about how to potty train your puppy.
Shane: And this leads into the membership too because this content grows over time, but the membership lets you go ahead and open without having all the content. If they have a question beyond that, they can go ahead and ask you, and you can respond to them in your forums as the expert that they have access to. You can’t just walk in a vets office, that costs money, but if they could pay monthly a small fee and talk to Carolyn, the Pro-vet-dog-training-agility-ninja master… Bam! Know what I mean? That’s your official title. You need to have that somewhere on your sales page. That access is what’s gonna make people join monthly and sticking around, because puppies are like kids… every month they’re going to do something new that you didn’t even think a puppy could get itself into, and they’re gonna need somebody to go ask, “What do I do next?” , “Oh! Well, first you pay your monthly membership and then I’ll tell you what to do next.”
Carolyn: Okay. So, I have… “This is how you’re gonna get your puppy home and so forth. This is what you need, I have a checklist, etc. Now, you might wanna take this Crate Training course, because people don’t wanna hear their puppy whining and crying at night and so on.” Now, can I just go directly into the membership? That would be my core product and put the potty training in there and give them access to me.
Carolyn: I don’t have to keep make courses like that and solve them separately right?
Jocelyn: You do not.
Shane: No, you wanna put everything in the membership because the thing about this, let’s say you make 5 more courses that are all the next things after potty training… well, a year from now, when you’ve made all of this content and you got all these members and people are talking, now you create a sales funnel to each component. Maybe create a sales page about how to stop your dog from biting but will still leads to the membership, but when they get in there, they’re like… “Whoa! My dog’s biting but it’s also scratching my furniture. My dog is also doing this…” All these things you created overtime build-up into this library, and they can’t train their puppy all in one day to do everything. So, they’re going to have to stay in the membership to get help, to ask what’s going on; there’s going to be variables where the course doesn’t work perfectly but they get a result, so they’ll need you to tweak it for them, you can do it right in the forums. You can create sales funnels for each course, but all the courses exists in one product. Just like Flipped Lifestyle, we have trainings on everything… WordPress, membership, anything you can think of in there. They’re just all in one place and when you need them, you go get them basically.
Carolyn: You wouldn’t have it possible to buy it separately, right?
Jocelyn: No, a lot of times in a membership it’s all or nothing. Most of the time, we don’t sell products or courses aside from our membership… some people do.
Shane: But, a lot of times, those are leads into the membership.
Jocelyn: Yeah! You might even put them on like Unomy or one of the other video training courses.
Shane: To be discovered, basically.
Jocelyn: And that’s for people to find you.
Shane: The reason you don’t always release everything you got individually into the membership is because it cannibalizes your predictable income. If someone comes in to buy the “Biting Course” and then never buy anything from me again and forget about me, they watch it, they get busy and forget where they found it, they’ll go somewhere else to get the next thing – I’ll only make one sale. But if they’re in my membership, it’s recurring, it’s automated and they know that there’s a big library of what they need next, and they’ve got a real person and a real community of people there to help them, they’re going to pay month after month after month, until my numbers become consistent that I know how much I make in a month. I know exactly what my revenue is going to be, I can actually have no stress about launching a new video every 6 months. When I launch a new video, I just drop it in my community of 500 people and I don’t have to tell everybody, they know it’s there so they pay the next month to use that course and it just takes all the stress out of my online business. Now, you can use them in sales funnels. The courses make great introductory offers within your email membership, like say, “Here’s a free thing, a video for 20 bucks or you can just join the membership for 20 bucks a month to get them all,” that’s a great tactic to get people into your membership. But you just don’t do one thing, or people can buy one off courses all the time, because then you’re completely left to the wind wherever the wind blows you. Did somebody buy my course today? I don’t know, but I know I’ve got a thousand members next month on this one website.
Carolyn: I wish, it would be great to have a thousand members.
Shane: It’s coming. This is the big thing about memberships, how many millions of upon millions of people own a puppy? How many millions of people buy a puppy every year for their kid? Right? And then think about this, think how small of a percentage of thousand of people is of that number, you only need about 500 people paying you 50 bucks a month to make $25,000 a month. Think about that. So you need one little sliver of that market to make a really, really solid online income. Okay?
Jocelyn: Alright. Well, I’m glad that you’re leaning this way. I think that a membership site makes a lot of sense for you. So, moving forward, we’re running out of time here. We always ask people at the end of our calls, what is something that you plan to do, say in the next 24 to 48 hours, based on what we talked about during today’s call.
Carolyn: Well, I’m going to do the one thing that you suggested, just put everything on one sheet and that’s what I’m going to record, and don’t worry about what comes out or what, just use it.
Shane: Get it done.
Jocelyn: Yup! Be your real person. Get it done. You can do this.
Shane: Well, Carolyn we’re really proud of you. We’ve been working with you for a couple of months now.
Carolyn: Thank you!
Shane: You’ve been in our mastermind, you’ve been doing a great job, and you’re right on the verge of releasing this product and we know you’re gonna have great success because you are an action taker and you do it and you don’t mess around with it. Whenever we tell Carolyn to do something, she’s like, “That’s it! I’m just gonna do it.” So, I know you’re gonna jump off here and get after that, really thank you for sharing your story with all of our listeners today.
Carolyn: Oh, thank you so much for having me. I really appreciate it.
Shane: That was another information packed call with one of our Flip Your Life community members. Hope that you got a lot of benefit out of our answers to our guest’s questions as well. If you’d like to become a member of our Flip Your Life community head over to fliplifestyle.com/flipyourlife and we can help you with your online business.
Jocelyn: Alright. It’s time to move into our Can’t-Miss Moment Segment of our show and these are moments that we were able to experience, that we might have missed if we were still working at a normal nine-to-five job.
Shane: This week’s Can’t-Miss Moment was taking a Wednesday off. But that’s kinda one of our goals right now is to not work at all on Wednesdays, not sure when you’re listening to this. We do these in advance, but we’re on summer vacation right now and one of the things that we really wanted to do this summer was take little excursions on Wednesdays during the week. Just short trips, places we can drive to, to have some fun with the kids. This week, we took off to Dollywood, down in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. We do have season passes that we bought this year for the amusement park, for the waterpark and things like that. So, we run down there, ride a few rides and then come home. We tooks the kids and we also took our executive assistant, Tiffany and her son. We all just kind of shut everything down on a Wednesday.
Jocelyn: I messaged her on Tuesday. I’m like, “Hey! You guys wanna go to Dollywood tomorrow?” and she’s like, “Sure!”
Shane: Sure, why not? So, we all just kinda turned off the business for a day, drove down a couple hours south and had a great time riding rides, ate some good pizza, had a lot of great fun. It was just an awesome time, it’s awesome to be able to have those season passes and the freedom to just take off on a daytrip.
Jocelyn: Yeah. It was a lot of fun. We just went around to all the different rides. The lines were pretty much non-existing because it was a Wednesday and we just had a great time.
Shane: Flipped Lifestyle amusement park-ing is the best, because if you go on a Tuesday or a Wednesday, there’s nobody ever there. So, once you get your online business going, make sure you leave Tuesday and Wednesdays open for travel, ‘cause you’re gonna get short lines and have a blast. Before we sign off I’d like to close every show with a verse from the Bible. Jocelyn and I draw a lot of our inspiration from the Bible. We love to share that with our listeners. Today’s verse comes from Colossians 3:17 and the Bible says, “In whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus. Giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” In every success you have in your online business, remember where that blessing comes from give thanks and you keep moving forward into the plan God has for you. That’s all the time we have for this week, as always guys, thank you for listening in to the Flipped Lifestyle podcast and until next time. Get out there, take action, do whatever it takes to flip your life.
