Have you ever suffered from comparisonitis?

You might have found yourself looking at other pet businesses or in a similar space and thinking ‘oh my gosh they do so much more than me?’

Fretting as you see them chat about their waiting list, client base, even their media wins, and spiral yourself into self-doubt?

Whilst it’s healthy to be inspired by others, comparisonitis can have a huge impact on self-esteem.
