In this episode, I’m getting the inside scoop on a new virtual pet influencer conference coming up October 24th + 25th. The Pet Summit presented by Great Pet Media has over 100 speakers from all over the world and all areas of the pet industry. I got to chat with two of the co-founders and organizers, Chelsea Evans and Paige Chernick. They talk about why they wanted to host a virtual summit like this, why it’s important to represent diversity at an event like this, and many of the educational sessions, panels and live talks that will be happening over the weekend. You know, they’re also doing a ton with animal rescues, so listen to learn about the 4 organizations that will get a portion of ticket sales.

I’m actually teaching 2 sessions during the summit and have a special promo code for you to get a discount on your ticket – use WWR15 to get 15% off at thepetsummit.com. Send me a DM @wearwagrepeat when you get your ticket so I know that you’re in my pack!

A Virtual Summit For Pet Influencers

Chelsea Evans and Paige Chernick are two of the four founders of The Pet Summit, a first-of-its-kind educational conference to connect pet influencers, bloggers, start-ups, and rescues!

Chelsea is the Co-Founder of Gal’s Best Friend, a chic site for modern-day dog moms, a full-time content creator, editor, and social media manager for the pet industry and frequently travels the US to connect with the growing pet-lover community. She is passionate about giving a voice to pets who deserve a natural way of healing emotionally and physically.

Paige is an Entrepreneur living in New York City. In 2013, she started her own Social Media company called PaigeKnowsFirst. She is in charge of social content and strategy for many brands, several of them within the pet industry. Paige’s dogs, Charlie and Sawyer, famously known as their Instagram handle “@puppynamedcharlie,” are both rescues, and have accumulated hundreds of thousands of fans on social media.

The Pet Summit is more than just a conference. They are bringing together a community of influencers that collaborate instead of competing and cheer each other on while building a life they love around pets.
