Sharing products and opportunities with the communities around the U.S. involves talking, sharing and following up, which results in social and economic growth.

Leadership Girl: What is your website’s url?

Marilyn Cook: www.pawTree.com/MyAll4Paws

Leadership Girl: How did you get into your current business? What opportunities or needs did you see?

Marilyn Cook: Products were introduced to me by a friend, who is an Independent petPro, for my dogs. And after seeing benefits from several of the products, I knew I had to share this company with others. It is an investment in lives, cats, dogs, and humans, helping the bond between them thrive, longer. Being an Independent petPro allows one to choose full time, part time, anytime, any place opportunities to make a difference.

Leadership Girl (LG): What have been your biggest challenges?

Marilyn Cook: Somewhat challenging is the initial mention of making a change to switching to or adding pawTree products to consistent routine feedings and usage. Folks are typically open to talking about their pets or business, to trying samples, but hesitate to go ‘all in’ to see if they can make a difference that is satisfactorily affordable in their budget, disregarding the possibilities of benefits resulting in less visits to the Vet office, better health and spirit, home delivery, and recurring purchase/free shipping options.

Leadership Girl: What has been your Greatest Reward?

Marilyn Cook: It has been a joy to learn that through my reaching out to people and following up, growing relationships, pawTree has helped pets very quickly enjoy relief from food allergy, seasonal allergy, gastrointestinal issues, chronic ear issues, sore joints, and dry or dull coats, senior dog cognitive issues, and bladder health issues.

Leadership Girl: If you could change something, what would it be?

Featured Expert Marilyn CookMarilyn Cook: If pawTree decides to add an option of increased quantity and size of packaged products such as treats or dry foods, it would be welcomed by new and existing customers who have multiple dogs and cats benefiting from them.

Leadership Girl: Who are your ideal clients?

Marilyn Cook: All U.S. people who are dog and cat owners or fosters, and those businesses associated with pets that want to make a difference in the whole life of that pet and the bond between them and humans.

Leadership Girl: Social Media, Yay or Nay?

Marilyn Cook: Yay – Media makes a good intro and broad connection, but cannot sufficiently compare to the benefits of the personal contact, discussion, and followup reactions face-to-face with pets and people.

Featured Expert: Leslie Flowers

Leslie Flowers is an authority on guiding women to ask for what they deserve … and be paid. Through seminars, workshops, high-performance masterminds, and her best seller Champion, she teaches a hallmark combination of various time-tested philosophies, distilling down the process of achievement and performance as the key to women having a successful business while living a life of abundance.

 

Leslie Flowers

With more than 10,000 hours teaching timeless universal principles and law, focusing on building confidence through performance and consistent achievement, Leslie is uniquely qualified to articulate complex concepts into bite-sized applicable nuggets, allowing women to find the motivation needed to take action toward their goals and start right away on their big dream.

Her 2014 Amazon Best-selling book Champion: 21st Century Women: Guardians of Wealth & Legacy in Women & Business, provides the how-to’s for building confidence and setting goals that are achieved with consistency over time, and how to start your own mastermind group.

Leslie’s three-year high-performance online business mastermind for women is based on her work, The 8 Essentials of Performance and Achievement, developed over twenty years. Her clients enjoy her online program as a rich resource for building their businesses. Her program, YourAccountabilityPartner -dot- Com allows women to work directly with her every week to stay on track toward their goals, no matter what.

Retired after forty-five years in corporate, Leslie calls herself a “Nana-preneur,” living in Cary, NC by a small lake dubbed “Swan Lake” (because it has a swan on it, of course) by her third of four grandchildren, all of whom live just ‘over the river and through the woods’ from her home.

Q & A

Leadership Girl (LG): Tell us about your business.

Leslie Flowers: I facilitated an ongoing, annual high performance women’s business mastermind. I’ve done more than 60 multi-week mastermind studies since 2008. I also provide accountability services at YourAccountability.com as many women want the accountability to keep them on track. I facilitate workshops and seminars, I’m a certified speaker (CS), a certified coach and consultant (LSC), and an inspiring and motivational speaker, having majored in drama at San Francisco State. I serve primarily women entrepreneurs and small business owners, yet my corporate fast track program has yielded wage gap crushing results by women moving up the corporate ladder.

LG: Who do you serve?

Leslie Flowers: Women who are already up at bat swinging. They have achieved a level of success; it’s simply not consistent or predictable. They have confidence and are looking for more. They not only want to succeed, they are willing to do whatever it takes, without violating the rights of others. They are coachable. Her clients understand 1) that their results exceed or match their level of investment in their own personal development and growth, and 2) are hungry for continuing to learn the information they know will take them where they want to go.

LG: What is the name of your business?

Leslie Flowers: Leslie Flowers Enterprises, LLC

LG: What is your website’s url?

Leslie Flowers: www.Leslie-Flowers.com

LG: How did you get into your current business? What opportunities or needs did you see?

Leslie FlowersLeslie Flowers: While already an expert in many personal development arenas by 2008, I wanted to work with the best and went into business with Bob Proctor, likely the most savvy thought leader in the area of principles of success and universal law. In 2013, I moved my mastermind studies and trainings to women when I discovered the results of a study by IWPR (Institute of Women’s Policy Research) for North Carolina revealing it would be 2054 before women and men would earn the same fee for the same work. I knew that women were stopped from being successful because they had no clue about what it took to become successful in business. Women must be successful in spaced intervals over time by executing their own directives in growing a business.

LG: What have been your biggest challenges?

Leslie Flowers: Helping women who believe they are my ideal client and who really want to work with me and succeed, yet are not willing to do what it takes based on fear and resulting lack of confidence.

LG: What has been your greatest reward?

Leslie Flowers: For fourteen quarters, I have trained and watched women set and reach their goals through the power of mastermind. My reward is their successes. Last year I guided twelve women through their money stories to invest $1,000 dollars in an event serving entrepreneurs and small business owners focused on moving their business from great to extraordinary. They didn’t know the results and had faith and confidence in themselves to execute the event. The best part was that I got to write a check to twelve women right after Thanksgiving … the event proceeds. This was THE biggest thing they had ever done in their lives.

LG: If you could change something, what would it be?

Leslie Flowers: That people choose to continue learning as I believe learning is our unique gift as humans and it serves as the ‘miracle grow’ for our minds.

LG: Who are your ideal clients?

Leslie Flowers: Who I serve is the same as my ideal clients: Women who are already up at bat swinging. They have achieved a level of success; it’s simply not consistent or predictable. They have confidence and are looking for more. They not only want to succeed, they are willing to do whatever it takes, without violating the rights of others. They are coachable. My clients understand 1) that their results exceed or match their level of investment in their own personal development and growth, and 2) are hungry for continuing to learn the information they know will take them where they want to go.

LG: Social Media, Yay or Nay?

Leslie Flowers: Yay!

LG: What is unique about your business?

Leslie Flowers: I am a rare woman authority on the timeless principles of success spelled out in the #2 best selling book of all time, Think and Grow Rich, and laws used for 200 generations by men to establish our current context for success. As such, I am uniquely qualified to teach women these principles in bite sized nuggets so they learn and apply the work quickly, leading to the ability to “ask for what they deserve, and be paid.” I have 45 years in corporate and 20 years studying a vast variety of disciplines and a rich resource and membership site to fortify the learning every week.
