The Mentorship Experience
with Erika Gonzalez
Let me help you navigate your next business move!
I have spent almost a decade working in the dog space and growing my business. I took a small dog training business and turned it into a successful and profitable career and online personal brand.
I want to help you reach your goals with less mistakes along the way! Whether you are a dog trainer in training that wants some guidance, a professional trainer who would like some case feedback, a pet professional wanting to branch out in the industry, a small business owner looking to grow on social media or take your business to the next level, or someone who wants to know more about the dog space or owning a business - this program is for you!
My career journey has had several stops along the way, including working at a Fortune 500 company, positions in marketing and public relations, then working in dog daycare and boarding facilities, training facilities, assisting rescues and shelters, managing a large chain pet store, running my dog training business, starting a dog walking and pet sitting arm of my business, and mentoring students enrolled in dog training school - to now going fully virtual with my business and services, collaborating with brands, becoming a content creator, and building an online personal brand.
Entrepreneurship is in my DNA. I'd like to take all of my experience and knowledge and help you with your business and career goals!
What People Are Saying:
"The Erika that you get during the 1:1 mentorship is the same one you see across her social media: she's engaging, direct, informative, and funny. Her vast knowledge helps shape the conversation in ways you didn't know you needed, leading you to epiphany after epiphany for how to improve your craft and brand. I can't wait to apply what I've learned so far but I'm even more excited to see what I learn next time."
- Ashley T., Professional Dog Photographer & Enrichment Trainer
"As a new small business I reached out to Erika through the Mentorship Experience looking for advice on social media marketing and helping draw in clients who were interested in working with me virtually. She offered so much helpful information on not only ways to increase my clientele but also on editing and creating content, streamlining my processes so that I'm not getting bogged down with as much admin work, and even had advice when I asked about a few specific product recommendations. I really look forward to continuing to implement the things she helped me with and to booking another Mentorship session soon!"
- Lyz K., Professional Certified Dog Trainer
"My Mentorship sessions with Erika have been invaluable. I was looking for someone to consult about difficult training cases, help me streamline my business processes, and take the overthinking out of social media posts. Erika has hit it out of the park on all of these goals in just 5 sessions. The a la carte structure of her program allows me to access quality coaching within my budget, schedule sessions at my own pace, and tailor the content towards my priorities at any time."
- Lisa C., Professional Certified Dog Trainer
