Episode Overview

Sports teams and athletes benefit from the guidance of a knowledgeable coach. Can pest control teams? Absolutely. Sheri Spencer Bachman, the owner of Pest Control Business Coach, is patrolling the sideline for them, converting her knowledge gathered as owner of Spencer Pest Services into strategies and techniques that can help a pest control business thrive. "I help pest control business owners remove the chaos out of their business and allow themselves to function as business owners instead of having the business own them,” Bachman says.

  • 1:30 Her family landing in the pest control business and why she fell in love with it.
