Candace D'Agnolo
CEO and Founder, Pet Boss Nation

As a pet industry veteran since 2004, I started companies in pet supply retail, wholesale bakery, dog daycare, pet grooming and more. After successfully selling three businesses, I now mentor thousands of other “Pet Bosses” to see success faster together than doing it alone. As a pet industry business coach, trade show speaker, columnist and influencer, my belief of community over competition and ability to grow and scale companies, is impacting other business owners in a big way!

Katrina Frank
Founder and CEO, Be Frank Consulting LLC

With nearly 20 years of experience in advertising, marketing and branding, and having been on the brand, agency and publishing sides of the business, I understand what goes into building a successful brand. I’ve worked with Fortune 500 companies, small start-ups and non-profits to help them build their brand, content, product and partnership strategies as well as helped lead and develop teams to execute it all. I love helping brands build something new and that all starts with a good brainstorm and planning session and thinking about new ways to uncover the right solution.

Tori Mistick
CEO Wear Wag Repeat

Over the past 10 years, I have built the award-winning dog lifestyle blog and multi-media platform, Wear Wag Repeat. My expertise in social media engagement is the key to the success of my blog, online store, pet industry podcast and e-courses.

Ronica Brown
Founder and CEO, Ronica Brown Agency

My first attempt at business was at age 9 when I started selling ketchup packets to classmates in school. I quickly learned the harsh lessons about cash flow, profits, and keeping more of what I made. Now, my passion is to teach business owners how to manage their business financial life. After completing my master’s degree in accounting and taxation, I worked 11 years helping high-net-worth individuals and corporations to reduce their taxes. Now, I use these same concepts to help small businesses implement money saving strategies that are designed to reduce their taxes and keep more money in their pocket by using the tax loopholes that the IRS allows them to take.

Moriah Garnett
Founder and CEO, My Clever VA

I am a Pinterest Marketing expert who helps small business owners increase traffic to their website and boost sales with the power of Pinterest. My specialty is showing bosses how to use Pinterest to find more clients, build SEO, and improve brand awareness. I know Pinterest can be a hidden gem for your pet businesses if used strategically and I would love to show you how to do it.

I have spent most of my working career in leadership roles, with up to 300 employees. I have a Co-Active coaching certification, a BComm in Entrepreneurial Management and I have invested tens of thousands of dollars in my own personal mastery in the last 5 years. I promise you I will be real and share my own missteps and failures because I believe in the power of sharing and giving permission to fail. When we fail, it means we are taking big leaps, learning, building resilience, and moving towards excellence.

I am the founder and editor of three blogs: Keep the Tail Wagging®, a blog about raising dogs naturally, Dog Mom Style, and Staying Home with Dogs. My blog has grown from a hobby into a woman / minority-owned small business where pet parents can find personal articles, books on raw feeding, videos, local and online events, recipes for dog food, and more. My mission is to empower pet parents to make better choices, speak up for their pets, and raise awareness of natural alternative canine care by sharing my experience raising five dogs.

Daniel Reitman
Founder and CEO, Dan's Dog Walking and Pet Sitting

I am a lifelong entrepreneur who started my first business in elementary school. My passion for animals began with my first career position as a vet tech where I found the inspiration to launch Dan's Dog Walking and Pet Sitting, a full service pet care provider in NY that has grown into a multi million dollar business with a client base of over 2000. I also launched and sold a tech company so I am very tech oriented. I would love to help you automate and grow your dog walking and pet sitting business by improving your digital footprint and existing systems.
