Isn’t it time you invested in YOUR Business Growth?
Good! Because It’s EASY, SMART and Doable Now! And Fun, too!
Now Is the Time to Invest in YOUR Growth, YOUR Pet Business and Be with Women Who Make Things Happen So YOU Can, Too!
Join us August 14th-16th!
The Pet Industry is continuing to grow and opportunities are everywhere. Unfortunately for some pet professionals, they are still stuck in an ever accelerating wheel of overwhelm, time and money crunches and more choices than bandwidth.
Here’s what women (and men) are telling me:
• You feel like you’re never caught up;
• You don’t have enough hours in the day;
• You’re daunted with too many choices;
• You’re experiencing tight finances, or your finances are on the back burner while you get orders out and clients served;
• You’re exhausted from not having enough help;
• You know you don’t know what you don’t know;
• You’re confused and frustrated with never-ending technology issues;
• You feel like you’re continually on a steep learning curve.
Plus – you have to feed the dogs! Or if you’re like me, get up and let them out, get up and let them in… (This does, however, qualify as exercise to me!)
All this gave me inspiration to change things for the better and have other busy and successful pet professionals help me.
Hi, I’m Shawna Schuh, President and Chief Pet Wrangler of Women in the Pet Industry Network (WIPIN), and I have the most exciting news ever!
Women in the Pet Industry Network is having another Pet Industry Conference and Awards Show!
Last year was our first, and it was over-the-top fantastic! Here is a comment from one pet professional who attended:
“Absolute best conference I have ever been to. Not only did you make everyone feel special, but I learned so much from every class and breakout session. It seems like this conference was designed just for people like me.” — Debra Rudzik, Otto Step, Inc.
We’ll add more comments as we go – after all, you want to know who else is going and how they feel.
You will learn a lot at this conference, you will meet amazing pet professionals that will share things that will astonish you, and if you choose to, you will meet people who will have a positive impact on your life forever.
You’ll love this conference for all it has to offer you.
See you there, blessings, Shawna

At the Conference, you’ll meet some of the most influential business women in the
pet industry today—and shake their hands, exchange cards, share ideas. You’ll make connections that matter. You’ll have the chance to align with pet professionals who have vast and varied networks.
These are women in the pet industry who are avid supporters of other women-owned businesses and offer solid brand loyalty—the kind of women you want to know
by name; the kind of women whose phones and e-mails you want readily available for connecting and mentoring. Women like you.
Women talk – it’s no secret. Meet them at the WIPIN Conference. Talk, share and brag about your brand with them. These generous women will, in turn, share your news with their own networks of pet parents and pet professionals.
Attend the WIPIN Conference and be a key player, meeting women you can partner with for mutual benefit for years to come.
Learn and Laugh with the Best and the Brightest Experts and Authorities
We have topics in store that range from business strategies to effective marketing and what really works for social media and how to effectively connect for results.
Here are the top five most important reasons to attend the highly effective WIPIN Conference.
1). Business Growth and Strategies
From the educational sessions to the round table discussions, you will walk away with information, resources and ideas that will help you Grow Your Pet Business. The goal is that you will walk away with at least one profitable and actionable idea to implement for your benefit. (We know you’ll have scores more – but if you leave with at least one, it will be worth coming!)
You will have the chance to create them with other pet professionals plus vendors and sponsors. This is a connection conference, and there will be time allotted to dive deep with others for shared experiences that set the stage for collaboration to help your pet business prosper. (Anyone who has been in business for any length of time knows it’s who you know that matters: You’re certain to leave the conference with a handful of new contacts to draw from!)
3. Marketing & Promotion
Not only will you learn better ways to promote and market your pet business, you’ll gain valuable ideas and proven strategies to be a cross-promoter and save time, too. (Conference attendees can even get in on some great deals for personalized photos and videos by Reel Paws — perfect tools for marketing! Find out more here.)
4. Knowledge & Action
We’re lining up some amazing experts to help you gain the knowledge you need to take effective actions the moment you leave the conference. There will be a “Get the Most From the Conference” session and a “Post Conference Action” session to help you get a big return on your WIPIN Conference investment.
5. Inspiration, Motivation and Laughter
We’ll have plenty of stories, video, participation and some downright funny things to make this a memorable experience that will shift your mindset and energy, so you soar out of the WIPIN Conference with a whole new set of sisters cheering you on!
“If you are a woman in the pet industry, this is a conference you should not miss! Absolutely first class all the way – first class connections, first class sessions.” – Krista Wickens, Dog Tread and Pet Zen
