Looking to find the perfect balance between work and personal life in your professional service business?  Let’s explore how integrating both aspects can lead to greater fulfillment and success.

From a seasoned veterinarian to an accidental entrepreneur, Dawn Bloomer’s journey has been a testament to resilience and adaptability. With her tireless work ethic and competitive spirit, Dawn endeavored to make her practice a success but soon recognised the pitfalls of the traditional business model. The relentless pursuit of billable hours was not sustainable. It was a realisation that sparked a newfound vision for her business. Rather than focusing solely on the quantity of work, Dawn shifted her focus to the quality and value of her services. She started exploring different service packages, even considering a subscription-based model. It was a radical shift, but one that held the promise of creating a more sustainable, customer-friendly business. Dawn’s journey exemplifies the power of adaptability, the importance of strategic thinking, and the potential of breaking free from traditional industry norms.
