#AskTrev 15 – Dogs & Business


This quick chat talks about a business analogy comparing dogs to people.

Some dog breeds, such as the hound, are intelligent and resourceful when it comes down to tracking people or prey.

In business we often need to be skillful at finding and hunting down our potential customers. If we approach growth with a hound mentality, we may find more success and results.

Then I talk about the opposite of the spectrum – the lazy dogs. The Newfie (Newfoundland) dog is one of the laziest dog breeds in the world. They are known as worker dogs, with limited motivation to exercise or move.

I compare the Newfie dogs to unmotivated people in the common 9-to-5 job, or unsuccessful, slow-moving businesses.

Which dog breed are you?
